    I hate to sound like a jerk, but I don't often follow the "white wine with white meats and red with red" wine rule. Do people still do that?...

  • Do you try the recipes on TV?

    Do you try the recipes you see presented on TV yourself or do you just enjoy watching the show?
    Sometimes it's difficult to keep track of what you need or how to cook the recipe, but if you have a good memory you might catch something

    I think that that watching TV is a good way to delight your eyes, but you will have to buy a lot of ingredients so that you can cook those foods that are being cook on TV. Those recipes are far expensive for me. I would never cook anything that I see on the television simply because it is not practical.

      I have never done it because most of the ingredient that is needed on making that recipe is too hard to find. I think that you can do a lot of recipe if you are rich. This is the only reason why you can go on experimenting on foods. You have the privilege because you afford them.

        In my case I'll have to say it depends on the ingredients' price and finding difficultness level. I have tried a lot of recipes from TV cooking shows and was very impressed with the way some turned out. Most of the recipes seen on Tv are indeed not very practical. It's like the producer of the show simply picked something from a cook book and didn't spend too much time thinking if the audience can ever have the chanse to prepare such a dish. It's not often you watch a decent show on television these days.

            When i'm watching tv and i see a delicious cake, i take a pen and a notebook and i'm waiting for instructions. In the end, i search for ingredients. If i don't find one of the ingredients i'm trying to improvize, but if many ingredients cannot be found, i give up.

              I think that watching TV shows will not make you a good cook simply because most of the ingredients that they are using haven’t heard or not available in our local markets. It’s just a way to entertain you. Do you hear someone who gets good at cooking by watching a show?

                I like to watch them a lot. They make me want to try them, because they look so good on screen but i don't always do.
                I do write them down, and so does my mum, but i cook what i see on tv very rare.
                I think it is because the complexity of the recipe. It always seems so complicated to follow..

                  I love cooking shows and sometimes I try the recipes. But I need to have the show taped first so that I can follow each step carefully and also know the ingredients and how much of them to use. Otherwise we are in a big mess. It's very challengin and I like this a lot.

                    I rarely watch TV cooking shows, and I have never attempted to make anything I have seen because they don't usually make thinks that I would like to eat. I don't like onions or garlic and I don't like spicy tastes so I guess I am pretty boring really.

                      I like to watch the shows, but I do not take notes. I haven't even thought of searching them on the internet. I just like to observe the technique...and the results. Plus, it's a great visual experience.

                          I love these shows. I would watch them over and over again. I find myself interested in some recipes too and try them on my own. With a bit of an experience and some ruined meals, I was able to make progress. What I love more is that I can try new things I never thought I'd try. It makes me get over my limits and find new things I like

                            If I see something that is doable , and I mean not too many exotic things , I will give it a shot.

                              First of all, I don't really follow recipes strictly - I treat them merely as guidelines. But more importantly, I watch these cookiing shows for fun so I do not want to stress myself; TV make cooking sound so easy which is not the case
