When is a Recipe Video Not a Recipe Video?

It always bothers me when I come across a recipe  video that is presumably teaching me something, when really it’s simply let me watch some “chef” mix a bunch of stuff in a pan. Here is a classic example of what NOT to do in a “how to” recipe video. Chef Diane Dimeo gives no baseline ingredient quantities, and therefore no baseline recipe on which to “riff” in subsequent efforts. Note also the complete lack of description of the regional aspect of the particular sauce. BarbecueNation LogoFrom the cans and bottles it appears to be a KC style sauce, but you would expect an informed chef to be considerably more articulate about the subject. This video is actually entertaining… as a demonstration of uselessness. But that’s about it.

Here’s the video, do with it what you will:

All the best to all y’all.
