Though this syndicated (and as of next season, canceled) daytime show is perhaps one of the strangest guilty pleasures on TV — Ainsley’s a hulking, saucy British chef who loves to shake his bum while making scones and cinnamon buns with special guests — its official website is curiously bland by comparison. Sure, it’s mixed in some recipes that feature the inimitable Ainsley touch (Mmm… English trifle. Hmm… raspberry-chocolate soy soufflé?), some advice on how to navigate a kitchen, and a culinary FAQ. But c’mon, who really watches this show for the cooking?
