If we’re not talking about politics and society in general, then we’re talking about food. It’s obvious, I mean, why would TV networks spend just to show how to make cakes or roast chicken? That’s because it’s our nature. We like the good things in life, and food is one of those good things. It’s one of the biggest draws on television, apart from MTV.
