    If you don't care how French are her recipes are, and you don't care how talented she is, and you don't care if she spent 10 years of her life in France — and the only thing you DO care about is that she is not FRENCH?? Sounds to me like you enjoy complaining over something that is NOT an issue.

    Laura Calder's training, her excellent recipes, her talent and her style, ARE what makes her appropriate, and in my opinion, puts on an excellent cooking show. Sounds to me that you just like complaining. Period!

    Wow, Coming from a guy who calls himself "Male Enhancement", is laughable. You and Emily are entitled to your opinion, but certainly don't expect people not to respond to what Karen described as a "basis for bigotry"….. And who cares if you think she is no better than Barefoot Contessa, that is NOT the point — We are not talking about Laura Calder's show.

    "Mr. Male Enhancement" and Emily have a problem with Laura not being French in order to host a French cooking show ?? Your points are irrelevant!

    @ guest – I agree with you that Rachel is not a chef, nor IMO is Giada, who uses the same indredients over and over and over. Neither of their shows actually teach anything — just walk you through quite simple recipes – and I don't think either of them proclaim to be a "Chef" . But, there is definitely a need and room for these types of shows for beginner cooks. But, I totally agree with you that their shows are on constantly — nothing you can't get out of a Betty Crocker or a beginner Italian (and not neccessarily authentic) cookbook.

    FoodNetwork and CookingChannel — PLEASE, more advanced cooking shows like Laura's & Julia's.

    Not all foods are an elaborate concoction. This is French Food at Home. Have you ever heard of French Bistro foods. I am not French and do not pretend to be but love her insight and her simple recipes.

    I agree no one can replace Julia.
    Julia was educational, humorous and trying to help Americans eat better, cook better,and live better.
    Laura continues in this thinking by showing simple recipes, simple ingridients, and simple cooking methods.
    Julia made mistakes "on purpose" . She dropped things, forgot steps, and even set things aflame.
    What the two have in common is to teach us how to make what is everyday into something more.
    Forget Julia's dropped pans, and Laura's hands. How does it taste?

    I love the music and I've been watching for years . Perhaps that I'm of Frech ancestory has something to do with it?

    get ready with pen and paper as the credits roll at the end of show…it goes by quickly! I like it too! But haven't taken the time to do this. Would work best to tape that part and be able to rewind and try to hit "pause" at the right place to REALLY READ AND WRITE what is scrolling by so quickly!
    If YOU manage to do it, please share! :)
