I've never liked Paula Deen. Her technique is paint by numbers, her food is basic comfort crap that a trained monkey could cook, and her EXAGGERATED accent REALLY GETS ON MY NERVES!

At least you can excuse Bourdain's politics by his imbibing of too many drugs and growing up in New Jersey in the 1970s.

I have always thought of her as a "professional Southerner" for just those reasons. And I agree with you about her cooking. It's nothing special; it's all about self-promotion.

As for Bourdain, he's no different except he does have training. I watch a lot of cooking shows. I love to cook. But I'm getting more than a little tired of the elevation of cooking to the metaphysical/psychological.

Watch Top Chef. The judges spend more time talking about "what does it say about him/her" than how it tastes. It's food. Not a Rohschach test, and the people who prepare it aren't artists or rockets scientists. Just make it taste good. I pretty much don't even care how it looks.

I can't stand the phony either. She is so over the top. I think she is as over exposed as Rachael Ray.

I thought that I was the only one that Ms. Paula was/is/always will be a phony... I can't stand watching her and her frat-boy sons... I really like watching Bobby Flay... maybe because he found the secret for snagging a hot Texas chick for a wife... by watching, I keep thinking I'll learn his "secret" to success.

As a Southerner I HATE her exaggerated accent and murderous use of “y’all.”
