So yes, another post about a television show. Deal.
I’ve been watching episodes of Bitchin’ Kitchen on Cooking Channel, a cooking show that looks as if it’s gotten heavy doses of punk rock, rockabilly and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse mixed in. In BK’s world, there isn’t any talking furniture, but rather three food correspondents who fill you in on extra information about spices, meats, wine, vitamins and so forth. These male correspondents, however, have as much silliness as Globey and Chairy from Pee-Wee.
The best is the hostess, Nadia G, who cooks up some really excellent-looking recipes that don’t seem too troublesome to replicate in the home. But it’s not only about the food. Nadia G is pure entertainment in tattoos, candy-coloured aprons and glam-punk high heels, setting up shows on what to cook when you’re hungover and how to impress your in-laws (hint: it involves lots of booze). She tough-girl talks you through making a fig and pesto salad or fried zucchini blossoms with some one-liners that will have you snorting out your soda.
Bitchin’ Kitchen started out online, and you can watch some excellent videos on Bitchinlifestyle.tv, which is happily showing additional short videos and is a great supplement to the Cooking Channel shows, or replacement if you’re not in America and don’t get the Cooking Channel. Check out this new one on coffee. C’mon, you know you wanna…

Do you see why Bitchin’ Kitchen brings me a profound amount of joy? DO YOU?! Seriously. I love this show. Hey there World, we have yet another thing to thank Canada for. Now someone hurry up and hire me so I can buy that killer zebra print apron on the Bitchin’ Lifestyle shop.
