Barefoot Contessa would be good if she didn't start every single recipe with 2 quarts of heavy cream and 4 sticks of butter.
My favourite - aside from Nigella and Rachel Ray is Chef at Home with Michael Smith. Something about his cooking seems so genuine and simplistic.
that's precisely what i love about barefoot contessa.
i can't stand rachel ray. irritating in personality and uninspiring when it comes to dishes... also, she's tapped to replace oprah one day, so that says it all for me.
tony bourdain's shows are awesome, imo.
