Anna and Kristina's Grocery Bag

I love watching cooking shows. It's great to learn how the pro's create their magic. But I've always thought it would be so much better to see a real UN-professional cook bumbling around like I do in the kitchen. You know, someone who burns stuff, and has crappy results sometimes, but who perseveres anyway and finally makes something great.

Well, I was thrilled to discover last week that I get OWN, Oprah's new network. I was also thrilled this morning when I was flipping around the channels while having my coffee & saw a new show there called, Anna and Kristina's Grocery Bag. It's these two women who try out different cookbooks, then they invite chefs who are experts in the cuisine that they are trying to come over for dinner.

These ladies were great. They were trying recipes from an Indian cookbook called, Mangoes and Curry Leaves. They made some funky, sticky, goopy Naan dough, they burned some dessert thing, one of them was so over it about half way through, it was great. Totally real deal cooking. Of course, they pulled it together & there was a happy ending. All this to say, Bravo OWN for bringing us a new great show. Finally! Make sure you check this one out - it's great.

  1. I saw the show once so far, and it was good. The two hosts were sort of catty towards each other, as they have different thinking, so it made for good t.v. A cool concept of trying different cookbooks too. I liked it.
    When will you have your own show???
