The Diary of My Dreams
When I first typed this title I wrote "The Dairy of My Dreams," but that's another post for another time. For now, I want to address a show I've been watching for the last few weeks and is currently at the top of my list of Food TV Worth Watching.
I'm talking about Diary of a Foodie. It's on PBS on Saturday afternoons, at least where I live. The word "foodie" sometimes bugs me, but in this case I'm cool with it, because the show is mesmerizing. That's a strong word, I know, but I do not use it lightly. I was at the gym today, feeling particularly spent and not at all "pumped up" but thirty minutes on the treadmill went by in a heartbeat because I was watching Diary of a Foodie. The content was so engaging I ran for an extra five minutes and the only side effect was extreme hunger (and a burning desire to eat with Heston Blumenthal).
Now don't get me wrong. Everybody here knows that I obviously appreciate the Food Network and wouldn't have the name of this blog without it. But, PBS really has some awesome food-related programs these days and Diary of a Foodie is one of them. Of course, it helps that the show is affiliated with Gourmet magazine, the editor of which I respect so much I have her picture taped to my bathroom mirror. Don't laugh at me! Ok, fine. You can.
