Cooking Progs on TV

What makes cooking so attractive to blokes on tv...?  is it the blokes that do the cooking?   Hairy bikers, and other male couples of various loose group associations, come to mind.
is there some feminist producer group, trying to make cooking "macho" so that the wimmen get to laze away their time, doing their nails, and make up?
Why can`t we (men) have some "tasty" looking wimmen, on TV, cooking up a storm for us....
Name your future pairings of female cookers, of course, they have to be... "good lookers" as well as "good cookers"   Wink

Re: Cooking Progs on TV

Isn't the problem that it would be impossible to have two women in the kitchen ?
They would either be fighting all the time, get distracted gossiping, or eating all the chocolate !.

As for macho, have you watched "Nadia G" on "Bitchin' Kitchen"
Here is a series of short clips on YouTube -

, to get an idea about the program.

I used to watch Delia Smith back in the 80s (only because Mum had it on), she was good.
Nigella Lawson can do things with a spoon I've never even dreamed of, and she's a bit fit.
Gordon Ramsay however is a foul mouthed numpty IMO.

Not cooking related but we've kinda been down this road before remember? - we dragged up the weathergirls with a few of us commenting about leaning lucy lol.
Food programs just don't interest me at all and never have. It doesn't matter whether its proper food or fish and chips it just doesn't interest me in the slightest.
As for wimmin, have you checked out the higher numbered TV channels on freeview after 11pm Wink

No mate, he's talking about "adult entertainment" not suitable for minors, ie, Porn.

Same here, most of these programs follow the same pattern. I Wonder how many people actually try out what they show on these programs. Usually takes twice as long to make many of these dishes assuming of course you can find all the ingredients.

I'm with Gleneagles on this. The odd food programme maybe but we seem to have dozens of them.  It's the same with property related programmes.

Homes under the Hammer's not bad, I just wish they'd show more recent auctions.

I thought those programs were there to encourage viewers to pound their meat until tender, and finished with a drizzle of meat juices.  Crazy
