And yet, there's a whole lot more to this corrupted cook than just a great recipe and brutal taste. "It's very simple really. Anyone can do an online show. All you need is a good idea. Without a real solid idea, you'll just make another thing to watch. Then have good, quality content. And with a little technology, you could have a good looking show."
