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.
