According to 69% of the people who voted, Ingrid Hoffman doesn't show us the spice she claims to have. Last weekend I saw her make a bunch of side dish looking things and put all the different gunks into bowls. The bowls were squares, rectangles, and Ls and they all added up to one big square. She had enough big squares for each person at a picnic.
I don't know about you, but I don't want to lug around that much stuff when I'm at the beach. There's just nothing "simple" about that.
Here are the official results:
- 59 people said she was simply boring (69% of the votes.)
- 31 people said she was simply delicioso (31% of the votes.)
If you like her, by all means you are entitled to your opinion. I'm just glad more people agree with me.
I want to start by apologizing for my absence. A lot has been going on at my work (I even have to come in on Saturdays and stuff) so I haven't been able to catch a lot of Food TV let alone write about it. But things have slowed a bit for the time being, so I am back and ready to write. Starting off, here's a new poll.
I might ruffle some feathers with this one, but what do you think of the sexy new Miami chef, Ingrid Hoffman?
I've caught a couple of her shows, and to me, it seems like she's a lot like a lot of the other chefs, excuse me, cooks, that are on Food Network already. The only difference is that she's Latina and has an accent. This might be a big difference for some, but to me we already have a lot of "real world" type cooks.
I think we need at least one more real chef on that can make some things from scratch. Ina Garten and Nigella seem to be holding down the fort on their own.
Am I out of line? Have you fallen in love with the hot Floridian? Or were you to bored to even check out her show? Please feel free to say what you like.
