      Anyone know anything about cooking shows?

      I never watch these, but in a while I will be teaching some Koreans a lesson on cooking (vocabulary, give them recipes, that kind of thing). I want to show them a video of an American cooking show... Any recommendations? Hopefully something where they use simple English (though that may be asking for too much), and some episode where they make something easy.. like cookies or whatever. I also need to be able to find this online...

      Gosh what's that guys name.... he always says "BAM!!!" when he finishes making something it's on the tip of my tongue..... oh that's right! It's Emeril you should show them cooking videos of his.

      He makes some amazing meals some simple, some complex a bit of something for everyone. Heres a sample video if you would like to view him.

      Well, Paula Dean speaks slower than a number of cooking show hosts and speaks a in fairly simple way, but she also has a somewhat thick southern accent (from my non-Southern point of view). I don't know if it would be a problem for your students, but I just thought I'd mention.

      Emeril Degasio (sp?) is fun to watch and spends a lot more time interacting with the audience.

      Giada de Laurentiis (had to find her picture to get the name) speaks very clearly and you can probably find some simple dishes she's done. I haven't had a chance to look online for clips, but I'm sure you can find some.

      She does have a pretty thick accent. Mes's students can just learn how to speak with a southern accent, lol. Just teasing.

      Also, I forgot to mention that, even though I love Rachael Ray, she does use a lot of slang. Like she'll say "Let's get these kiddos into the pan..." Kiddos meaning the onions or whatever she's slicing up.

      I would just browse the Food Network site. There are a lot of videos on there you can check out.
