oh, hello. i'd like to introduce you to my least-favorite host on the food network, marc silverstein:
i only watch the food network when i am at the gym, since time-wasting tv is what it's all about for me at the gym. i was waiting for rachael ray (my favorite food network host) to come on, watching the end of the best of, when this guy caught my attention. the episode was called "waterfront tables," so his maryland/pennsylvania accent immediately jumped out at me (examples: water. ocean.). do i have a prejudice against the baltimore accent or something? i have to do some serious soul-searching on this issue, but suffice it to say that i developed a loathing for marc silverstein as i watched, and his pronounciation of "haute cuisine," several times, as "hot cuisine" can't be excused by geography.
