Liz Hurley is totally hot and guess what? She is a god-damned chef AND, according to this article, she's going to go toe-to-toe against the lip-smacking-give-that-dog-a-bone Nigella Lawson by taking the culinary skills she developed by running her own 400 ACRE ORGANIC FARM to the boob food tube.

Now why she seems to have chosen to teach cooking and not farming on TV is beyond me at the moment. I mean, if she's like an expert farmer, wouldn't it make more sense for her to teach things like how to turn a manure pile or plow a field with an ox? And while food cooked on a farm can be pretty darned good, the skills that one develops in a farm kitchen aren't the ones that most people want to learn. I mean, is there really that much pent up demand among urban and suburban audiences for knowledge about how to slaughter a hog and make blood sausage?

But what the heck do I know about what people who watch food TV really want? Maybe there is a lot of audience demand for a hot looking English actress whose real skill is organic farming, but who wants to share her knowledge about cooking. I'd never know. But I'll tell you what, if Ms. Hurley's chef's uniform looks anything like that farmer's outfit she's wearing in that photo in the corner of this post, she might just have a shot at convincing the TV foodies that she really is the next Nigella Lawson.

Right buddy?

After assiduously studying the story and even more assiduously the photographs, I have determined that she is apparently releasing a couple of trial balloons.

With a little help from Google Images, this definitely merits further study.

She must specialize in growing melons! I am expecting some backlash from women with this glut of boobilicious chefs on Food Network. Just what we working women/ home cook multitaskers need to make them feel inferior-made up Victoria's Secret models cooking in the kitchen with prep chefs and food stylists!

Letter for FN from Jennie/Tikka:

"Dear FN, I am writing this to request [edit] demand that you give me a t.v. show, post haste. My qualifications include graduation from a culinary school (an obvious negative on my record) and that I have cleavage (nature gave me C's!) Please provide me with the address to send my 8" x 10" glossy resume to and I will provide as much detail as the camera will allow on my culinary abilities. Love, Jennie (I-put-the-C-in-C Cup) C."

P.S. In anticipation of my upcoming t.v. debut, I have trashed all my respectable chef jackets with the nice black piping and french knot buttons and replaced them with low-cut tight t-shirts purchased in the teen department at Macy's. When do I start work???
