Local Cooks Inspire Public TV Pledge

About two hocooksPledgeurs of my weekend so far has been woefully unproductively but deliciously sucked into watching KCTS 9‘s membership drive. I stole glances while cleaning and procrastinated while working and watched during a visit with the in-laws.

They compiled holiday recipes from viewers around the state (including a dozen or more Kitsap cooks) and invited some of them on to cook, including Kim Berto of Poulsbo who made Halibut Cakes with Tarragon Sauce and Bill Osowski of Poulsbo, who mad a Baked Stuffed Shrimp.

Most of the recipes they’ve been showing are from home cooks, and look fairly easy to make. Mostly the programming has made me jealous of George Ray, whose only job, it seems, is to taste the food and exclaim how wonderful it is. I. Want. That. Job.

It inspired a few “why didn’t I think of that” moments and a wholde lot of hungry stares.

And yes, it drove me to make a pledge.

For a $65 or more membership, you can get the book and the warm fuzzies for supporting public television.

Now that’s some tasty marketing.
