New Yorker article..RR

fara | Oct 1, 2006 03:01 PM

So I read the New Yorker article on celebrity chefs and the link dedicated to hating Rachel Ray was brought to my attention. I guess everyone has the right to have and blog their own opinion, but I thought the reasons this site gives are pretty innocuous - RR is basically a goofy Italian American woman (they complain of hand waving and talking exhuberantly) w/no chef's training. People hate her for this?

Perhaps I'm missing something b/c I only watch the Food Network when visiting relatives. I can't stand to watch Sarah Moulton, Sandra Lee, and Giada. I do not mind Ina, Rachel, and Paula.
I am fortunately too busy to start a Sandra Lee bashing web site, if one doesn't yet exist, but why do we have such visceral reactions to these chefs? Are they supposed to be stereotypes or something?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
