Demonstrated in this video I believe is a bit of what Squirrel mentioned: the Kermit voice.

She also speaks of rubbing her meat, but it's not as offensive as the former butter lovin', bleached out granny... Paula Deen.

Yup, she wears dresses and skirts with her long hair hanging down whilst cooking.
Have never seen her hair hidden, and she's got plenty of comedic? mouth.
She's a chef, right?

nope. she's a cook. i'm sayin', tv is tv. i like her. she makes me laugh. her bio mentions no training. the basis of her show is cookin' infused w/ entainment.
that anne is too cocky, on a similar tv set, she has a chef name, i think....... yet is mean & only emotional when it means she's gaining a win.
in a real kitch', neither would look that way.

Anne W. Burrell (born September 21, 1969) is an American chef, TV personality, and instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. She is the host of the Food Network show Secrets Of a Restaurant Chef and co-host of Worst Cooks in America, where she is currently undefeated. She is also one of Iron Chef Mario Batali's sous chefs in the Iron Chef America series and appears on other programs on the network such as The Best Thing I Ever Ate. She was a contestant on the fourth season of The Food Network competition show, The Next Iron Chef Super Chefs being eliminated in episode 6. She was also a contestant on the first season of Chopped All-Stars Tournament, winning the "Food Network Personalities" preliminary round to advance to the final round, where she placed second runner up to Nate Appleman (winner) and Aaron Sanchez. Anne is openly lesbian.[2]

After the ICIF experience, Burrell remained in Italy, working in various restaurants for nine months.[3] She worked at La Bottega del '30, a small restaurant in Tuscany with one seating each night.
Burrell returned to the U.S. as a sous chef at Felidia, owned by celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich.[3] The connection with Bastianich would help her career. She became the chef at Savoy, a small prix fixe dining room. After Savoy, Burrell began teaching at the Culinary Institute of America. Lidia Bastianich's son and restaurateur, Joseph Bastianich, and Chef Mario Batali named Burrell the chef for Italian Wine Merchants, their New York wine store.[3] The Batali connection would further propel her career.
She later became the executive chef of Centro Vinoteca, an Italian restaurant in New York City's West Village area which opened in 2007. She left the restaurant in September 2008 due to her busy schedule and many commitments.[7] The departure also meant that she would not start at Gusto Ristorante,[8] as both of the restaurants are part of Mangia Hospitality Group. Burrell planned to open her first restaurant in 2010 in New York City.[9]

POOP!

Luvs, I think I miss understood, you are referring to Nadia, not Anne, I was turned around. my bad.

Nadia has been quite the hit online for years, I was happy to see the transition to TV for her, but she pours it on pretty thick. I can take it in small doses though.

I watched some of Worst Cooks in America the other night. I think the show has to be rigged because some of the contestants' ingnorance in the kitchen is beyond what I find believable.

I do like Anne Burrell, but that hair just seems to get wilder and wilder as time goes by. In fact, I'm pretty sure she has a cockatoo in her dressing room telling her how to style her hair :





Sweep it up on the sides, Anne
Sweep it up on the sides

Make it pointy on top, Anne
Make it pointy on top

Since Anne's a lesbian, wouldn't that be like a black person calling another black person the "n" word? You sure it was Anne or maybe you were thinking about Paula Deen?

I like her on TV, wouldn't want to work with or for her because she would drive me up a wall and we'd end up butting heads. We've liked to loved every recipe of hers that we've tried and there have been quite a few. She does look heavy handed with the salt sometimes, but I haven't found that to be the case with her recipes.

I don't know about all those people being that dumb. Maybe some of it is for the show, whether it's the producers or the contestants themselves, but our DD could easily have been a contestant on that show back in her mid 20s. I am not kidding or exaggerating about that in any way whatsoever. Her cooking skills consisted of using the microwave to reheat leftovers that Craig and/or I had cooked, cook frozen dishes, make rice and browned ground beef with mojo mixed in, and scrambled eggs and toast. That was her repertoire. I am NOT kidding.

I can't see her making any offensive remarks.
She's out there, to be sure, but within her own self, not to bring offense to others.
By the way, is she even on cooking programs now?
I don't watch them like I used to.

Anne Burrell worked alongside Mario Batali on Iron Chef America as his sous chef before hosting several of her own shows on Food Network, but it seems the two celebrity chefs have more in common than that show. In 2009, she was sued for discriminating against female employees at Centro Vinoteca, a West Village restaurant where she used to be a chef.
According to the lawsuit, Burrell was accused of calling the plaintiffs, who were all women, a string of derogatory, and often sexually degrading names. She also reportedly made remarks about their cleavage, and is said to have openly commented on their sex lives.
The lawsuit also alleges that only female staff were treated in this manner. When they complained, Burrell allegedly had them fired. Although a settlement was reached in that case, Burrell has not commented on the validity of the accusations. Details of the settlement are not available.**

The story I read on that was from 2011.
Reportedly he said interviewing a gay couple/restaurant owners would make him uncomfortable "weird me out".
Whether or not he actually said that, who knows?

Agreed. My son treat his staff with respect but if someone messes up they are spoken to in private, with witness, and he lays it on the line. He is bald.
