Rachael Ray

I know I'm not the only person who finds Rachael Ray annoying. She's one of the few chefs that's hit mainstream television and can be considered a celebrity. The problem is, I don't think she deserve it. Emeril Lagasse and Gordon Ramsey would be considered chefs deserving of their celebrity status. She even said, "I have no formal anything. I'm completely unqualified for any job I've ever had" to critics of her cooking style. My style of cooking (taking shortcuts whenever possible) is reminiscent of hers, but even I realize I'll never be a professional chef. It's nice learning shortcuts to preparing meals, but to become a celebrity chef (and a millionaire) without any training whatsoever? That's just wrong.

Don't even get me started on her catch phrases. "EVOO", "Yum-o", "So delish", "G.B", "Oh my gravy!", "How good is that?". Typing that made me cringe. Pair the phrases with her obnoxious voice and you've got a recipe for disaster (as did this photoshoot she did for FHM). Maybe I'm being too harsh on her. Without her, videos such as this would never have been made (Careful! Turn down your volume before watching; someone may look at you funny).
