in reply to I mostly learned to cook from:

I assert that I first learned without TV. I borrowed The James Beard Cookbook from my family when I moved into an apartment in college, and it did me well.

I assert that swampyankee first learned without tv, too ;-)

How didn't The Galloping Gourmet make the list? "No amount of wine is too much if the cook drinks half first"

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    You've got me; I learned to cook without watching TV. I also learned to iron (I like cotton shirts, and dislike looking like I've slept in my clothes) and sew (buttons only, thank you) the same way.

    I do remember the Galloping Gourmet burning himself quite badly in one of his shows (he did something like pouring water into hot oil. This violated cooking rule 1: don't pour water into hot oil, because the water will flash into steam, and the oil will spatter everywhere.)


    Any New York City or Connecticut area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.

    There are some enterprises in which a careful disorderliness is the true method.

    Yes, it was fun watching the prancing and flamboyant Graham Kerr.

    Where do you want *them* to go today?
