Glad you posted the link! My DH always is laughing at how inept Jeffrey seems to be. He looks downright scared of the grill. I have to fill him in on the fact that Jeffrey is more on the ball than he comes across on the show.Originally Posted by GingerPow
The other thing we laugh at is that the show will stage someone coming over for a, say, lunch. Ina's friend arrives and Ina plunks down an appetizer, and then the friend is left in the other room reading a magazine while Ina finishes the meal. How many times have you done this to a guest? Wouldn't a single guest keep you company in the kitchen if there's more to be done? I know this is staged but it always comes across as very strange to us.
And I know what you mean about her frequent chortling, but I've never found it annoying. She just seems to be having a good time. In fact, I'd go to her house for a dinner/party any time (even if she did leave me alone with a magazine while she prepared our meal)!
