THE FOOD CHANNEL HAS DONE TO

ME AND TO MY CHILDREN.

IT HAS INSTILLED IN THEM THE

IDEA THAT IF I PREPARE A MEAL

FOR THEM THAT THEY DON'T LIKE,

I CAN BE SENT AWAY.

COMPETITIVE LOT?

I'VE BEEN SURPRISED AT JUST

HOW UPSET AND DEEPLY THE CHEFS

ARE FEELING THIS COMPETITION.

FAST.

IT'S ALMOST LIKE AN OUT OF

BODY EXPERIENCE.

I'M LIKE OH, YES, OF COURSE,

THE NEXT THING I KNOW I'M

RUNNING AROUND GETTING POTS

AND PANS AND COOKING

SOMETHING.

WHEN I GET TO THE END HOW DID

I THINK ABOUT THAT.

>> Jon: DO YOU CATEGORIZE IT?

>> IT'S IN THE FORM OF A LOSS

EVENING BUT IF I MAKE A SIMPLE

SYRUP IT'S GOT A LITTLE BIT OF

A FEEL TO IT.

IDEA OF FOOD AND HOW IT GOES.

IT'S LIKE HOW CAN I USE THAT

IN A... YOU KNOW, A WAY THAT

YOU OPEN IT UP AND YOU GET

THAT AROMA.
