The New Porn: TV Chefs

Have you noticed the current trend for good-looking TV chefs? A whole host of new chefs have now joined Nigella in making cooking sexy. TV cooking is the new porn! Just have a look at this list:

The Fabulous Baker Brothers – I’m sure Tom and Henry Herbert have credible skills in the kitchen but, let’s face it, that’s not what got them a TV show.
Sophie Dahl – A former model fronting a TV series? It’s not rocket science; producers know she’s bound to attract viewers. They even named the series The Delicious Miss Dahl. Well, quite.
Lorraine Pascale – Again, a former model does a cooking show! Surprise, surprise! Home Cooking Made Easy, indeed! *wink, nudge*
Rachel Khoo – She kind of accidentally made this list…i.e. she is eye candy without actually trying to be. Despite her culinary skills, inevitably that isn’t the attraction for the viewer (pardon the pun!).
Nigella Lawson – She’s like the dominatrix of cooking porn. Nigella shamelessly uses seductive gazes to camera, suggestive words and hazy camerawork to make her TV programmes look like a soft porn show! Naughty!
