My Obsession with TV Chefs


My obsession with the Food Network and the Cooking Channel started a long time ago.
I was house-sitting for a friend who had cable and got so sucked into these channels
that I literally spent hours upon hours watching one chef after another teach me how to cook.
I said to myself: "When I get my own house, I must have these two channels".
So, of course, we have both right now... I love it and I've learned so much.
But because I have this little obsession,
which has caused me to veg out for way to long in front of the TV
only to find that I'm really not cooking anything, just watching cooking(!)...
Well, I had to put some limitations on my TV Chef viewing.
I allow myself to only record a few shows that I am absolutely in love with.
One of these shows that has become a recent favorite of mine is...

The Little Paris Kitchen 

Here is a little blurb about the Chef of The Little Paris Kitchen:
"For the last year, this unconventional Cordon Bleu-trained cook (Rachel Khoo) and writer
has run the smallest restaurant in Paris from her charming little flat.
With only enough room to serve four guests,
it is here that she has perfected her special twists on classic French dishes...
Over six episodes, Rachel produces everything from simple suppers
to sumptuous patisserie and beautiful gourmet dinners."

Now I am just dying to get my hands on one of her cookbooks!

I love food network and cooking channel but we haven't had cooking channel for a little while. Ina garten is one of my favorites though! I grew up with food network and that's actually how I learnt to cook. My parents don't cook ever!
