Love the cooking shows on PBS Create. Not sure why I watch those however I love to cook. I watch what ever is on while I have dinner since I eat alone almost every night….you know life in a small town. The chatter. The chopping. The charming welcoming kitchens all feel friendly and fill the “dinner party” with a light air of joy.
I have on many occasions discovered a new method or learned a wonderful new recipe to try and have. What always amuses me is that the one hosting the show then tastes the dish that is brimming hot. I always feel ouch for them because the food so many times is steaming with the waves of the heat streaming up from the surface…Ouch. Of course there is a big gulp of wine that follows…also amusing. The shows are entertaining, fun and informative. It is better then setting a place for one at the table and gazing across the dining room.
And in some strange way watching these while having dinner makes my dinner seem a bit better. A nice bonus.
