Serious Eats: Talk
TV Portion Sizes!
So I am a food tv junkie (but I am a despiser of all things Rachel Ray) and I spent last week laid up in bed with a cold and spent much of it watching food TV. I happened to watch a few minutes of a few episodes of RR (what can I say, it was the meds) and OMG her serving sizes for a portion are INSANE. It also got me thinking about some other TV personalities. ina can sometimes make huge servings and I know I've seen others do it as well.
I'm sure it's just for TV, but isn't think just contributing to the gluttony of America? I sometimes find that I get double the number of servings out of a recipe. What do you think...makes for good food TV or just contributing to our obesity as a country?
