There are so many cooking programs on the television lately.

Things I Have Noticed:
Plating up with one's hands
Not too long ago (in my neck of the woods) this was looked at as a 'no, no'. You served up with utensils for the sake of hygiene.

Many 'fancy' and expensive ingredients
Lots of things I haven't heard of, though a few I would like to try.

Salad or salsa type sides appear difficult
Not really, but works of art, requiring time

Sauces, dressings
Lots of preparation for a swirl on a plate. Give me the gravy boat. Sometimes herbs and spices mask the taste of the main dish.

Tiny portions
After all the preparations, you end up with courses of little tastes. Nibbles.

The whole process in some programs is so stressful...
meals seem to have turned into fancy dinner parties.

This is great for the fine diners, experimenters and those looking for extra 'zing'.

Alot of dishes appear fussy and complicated and while I might 'oooh' and 'ahhh' over some of the dishes produced, I find myself wanting to go back to simpler preparations and methods.

I agree with you, Mina. When I look through magazines I see so many recipes which seem fussy or include ingredients I would have to buy just for that recipe.
Thank you Marie. I do believe older generations had the right mix. Very creative with available ingredients. We have so much choice now, it's easy to get caught up in whatever is going on around us, rather than stepping back and looking at the big picture xxx. Health wise and all that jazz xxx
