Unexpected Detour: Fluff?
Posted by cmh gourmand on June 29, 2009
I get a little annoyed when food bloggers lose focus and write way outside the food genre. However, I recently watched TV (a rarity) while on vacation in Montreal. I watched the Today Show. I was intrigued by what goes on during that show due to some Saturday Live sketches on YouTube.
A short segment I saw featured Jenna Wolfe. I immediately thought – “this does not seem like the the normal morning fluff here.” So I did a little research and found she is not a typical American – growing up in Haiti and Jamaica. She speaks fluent French and Creole. And here is the kicker – there seems to be a hardcore group of bloggers that hate that she on the show. There are bloggers that obsessively follow TV which seems a bit pedantic and nerdish – I guess as a blogger excessively following food I should not cast the first stone but……
Well, I am no hater, I may be a bit smitten – but not for the expected reasons, this woman knows how to have fun with food. She is not the typical talking head and she is funny.
I now return to my regular content and start some self loathing for doing this post.
Jenna you are welcome to Columbus anytime for an ice cream, taco truck and Columbus culinary tour.
