  • This episode showed me a little about cooking but nothing about how they cook for real. Other episodes were much more impressive.

    Making crab patties is not rocket science, nor was much of the menu today. The desert was interesting, but then I always serve my ice cream desert with the main course. They brought The Next Food Network Star Aaron on their show as a lead in to his. It was a forced introduction and to me was overdone. His food like a lot of the stuff he cooked on the Next Food Network star was not memorable. We all can see why Aaron was picked, to appeal to a demographic they are seeming to miss. Down Home show is not bringing in their hoped for audience so let's try another. I am not saying Aaron is not a good cook, but he did not win the competition as the others could not ever win it.

    He was their chosen winner well into the season, and all the bad cooking and poor camera time could not change their minds.

    I did watch his show and it tried to appeal to a family audience and while he is a nice guy the show did nothing for me. Another Food Network failure. In the last year that makes three I can count, the last show by their winner last year, and Dinner Unwatchable er Impossible a show that had a great audience that will not come back.moreless
