I watch a lot of Food Network — I’m a big fan.
(I want that on the record.)
But watching all the show hosts and chefs from Food Network describe their food favorites on The Best Thing I Ever Ate makes me understand why some people from other countries think Americans are batshit crazy.
These personalities, who typically appear authentic on their Food Network shows, turn into over-the-top, food-obsessed, caffeine- or sugar-addled caricatures of themselves as they describe the ‘perfect ice cream dish’ or ‘best egg salad ever’ (like that even exists in nature — seriously).
Their eyes bulge. Their pronouncements are peppered with puns. (They alliterate like that, too.)
It is so annoying.
It is, in fact, The Most Annoying Show on Food Network.
