    First we add fruit… there’s fruit in the pitcher, just fruit… next we add a whole bottle of white wine, and…. MOVIE MAGIC, star anise and cinnamon sticks are in the pitcher… seems really weird to just leave out the ingredients, steps-calamari, too, especially on a web video where we don’t have time constraints. It also feels like more than a little fruit fell flat on the counter in this segment. The mood seems weird and she… just seems really impatient and unhappy to be there. I think Babish or Sonja (Sonya? not totally sure) would be way more compatible w/his personality.

    If you read her bio, this woman has navigated some real tough times in her life. Molested at 7, raped at 16. Accident that almost killed her. Battles with Endometriosis and runs a foundation to support and raise money for many other women suffering from it. Strong & independent single parent too. So yep, lot to admire. I’m sure she has her flaws too. Don’t we all? At least we can appreciate the good one does.

    Stephen seriously needs to learn how to act during these cooking segments. He’s always so dismissive and borderline rude to the guest. Pay attention and act like you care!!

    Stephen was borderline rude to Padma in this one, esp. asking about her kid and not paying attention to her answer… sad! Padma is great!!

    Sorry Stephen I love your show but I can’t watch segments with Padma because she’s so beautiful it hurts my brain, eyes, and heart. For realz yo. Ever since she was a judge on Top Chef. Padma you are the most beautiful woman the earth has ever seen.

    Looks like Padma had a facelift. She tries but her Indian accent comes out loud and clear.
