Every once in awhile a gem of a tv show pops up and I cannot help but shoot a post about it. The Chew is one such family-friendly food-focused fabulous find Monday-Friday 1:00 eastern! It replaced the long-time running All My Children in that time slot. I dvr just about everything nowadays. My dvr is perfect for this program. I don't want to miss a single show! You will understand why after watching it for the first time. The co hosts are Clinton Kelly, Mario Batali, Michael Symon (love him!), Carla Hall and Daphne Oz.
Check out a sample below. You can see more at http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/the-chew.
Carla Hall is one of those people you want in your life. She exudes warmth, unconditional love and a proud heritage and an unabashedly exuberant joyous excitement for family and cooking for family. No doubt each co host intertwined their love of cooking with family, but Carla Hall doesn't just talk about it. Her whole body literally does a happy dance when it is her turn to share her recipes.
I was not as wowed as the rest of the watching world when Paula Deen was the celebrity guest last week. She kind of took over and cut off my new The Chew bff Carla Hall. I don't care how famous you are - you are still a guest and grandstanding never is acceptable. I was shocked when Paula Deen double dipped into the pudding and then leaned over the entire bowl to dig in for more. Gross!
Other than a few minor infractions this show rocks!!! I am glad it is not rehearsed and polished to perfection. I enjoy the spontaneity so very much. Can't wait for Monday's The Chew!
