"Dear David, i just wanted to congratulate you and your staff on your excellent show TV. I love it. I show it all time and I really enjoy their recipes and your interaction with those delicious, lovely, delightful grandmamas. I love their personalities and their recipes. (Grace a elles, je voyage tous les jours et m'invite a votre table en imaginant les gouts et parfums que liberent leurs delicieuses recettes). They all remind me of my own Mamie when she was alive. I love your humour, you are so cute and charming with those grandmamas. I love your flirt with those ladies you are so nice with them, your participation on their recipes particularly the Evelyne Koop's recipe.I hope your show continues for a long time. God bless you and those lovely grandmothers regards A big shalom from Israel (excuse my poor english expression)

I love your show. How about a Vietnamese or Norwegian grandmother. Any plans for a 2nd cookbook?

Dear David! I have seen almost every one of your shows and it was nice to see also a Finnish grandmother. Actually I was very proud of her! Your show is the best cooking show on tv.

Hi David, I loved watching you on Loving Spoonfuls. I think I've seen most of the shows and in fact, I often watched re-broadcasts because I enjoyed them so much. The funniest shows featured Caribbean grandmas. I am glad that you have another show on tv but really miss your antics on the cooking show. Please - bring Loving Spoonfuls back!!!

Hi Anna, just checking the site and impressed with yours and others comments...why does'nt W do something about this...????why???not....hey, I am so prepared with new styles and food to show the young families how the Grandmas did it their way long before they were born...I am ready... and David, oh man, how we miss this guy whom have become our real son....we love u David and misses u so much..
BRAMPTON, ON, - Tuesday, April 20, 2004 at 16:35:44 (PDT)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Bring back Loving Spoonfuls!, The new show just isn't the same. I miss the grandmas, and the recipes, the stories they'd tell etc... It was about the only show that you could sit down with your family and friends and learn and enjoy. I miss it very much!

I highly recommend the show come back to W TV someday soon, because it will be fun to bring back some of the Grandmas that may still be alive....Oh that will be fun for us to watch them make new recipes and to know some of us whom may have watch the show may now be Grandmas ourselves...and we may learn a thing or 2 off our countries...you see we may be the off springs from a Grandma and really never visit the country they came from, and this show will surely halp us to know a little of our back ground on FOOD of course, and will give us an hour of MY COUNTRY GRANDMA ON TV IN CANADA. so W, think about it??????

Dear Loving Spoonfuls fans, If we felt there was enough of a demand, we would most certainly make a collection of episodes available. Let us know on this bulletin board if a DVD or Videotape collection of the series is something you would buy.

I am originally from Canada and I will definitely miss seeing Loving Spoonfuls. W Network, you were way off base on this one. This was a great show with an obviously huge fan base. Do you think you'll ever put out videos of the show? I know I would buy all the seasons if you did.

I too will miss your show David. Although I'm looking forward to still seeing you on the network, it won't be the same without seeing you with all the grandmas. What were you thinking W Network??? You should be cancelling "A Guy & A Girl". Is there any show more annoying than that one???

Don't be soooo rude, alot of people looove David Gale, and a lot have expressed their let down that this show was not picked up again, that is WTN. I wish it would come back!!! David you light up our homes and have given us the Canadian tradition that we all crave...I wish this show would be picked up by FoodTV...let's keep our fingers crossed.

Uh, his name is David, not Dave. Secondly, it's says right at the top of the Loving Spoonfuls site that they now have a new show, and to click for details. It clearly states Loving Spoonfuls is off the air and this other new show has begun production for the W Network. Are you blind or what?

I just watched your Christmas special and I very much enjoyed it!! I am truly dissapointed to find out the show has been cancelled. I always loved to watch the show. It wasn't about the food as much as how David made all these wonderful ladies feel special and you could really tell. Myself and many of my friends can't believe it is no longer on and if there is anything that we can do to help bring it back just let us know.

I am happy to have been a part of the show...David and the other Grandmas has become as extended family to all of us... I will hope that in the future we will be called upon again to do another cooking show....if still alive.... Thank you to David and the crew, and do have a MERRY XMAS...PEACE TO ALL.

I'd been out of the country for awhile. I did not realize right away the show had been cancelled - what a SHAME. A most unusual way to keep cultures alive and a fabulous original concept; bringing us all together through the traditions of food, families and love - not to mention the generational values it offered. Where will we go from here? You will be missed. Thank You for all your wonderfull creative effforts.

When is the show coming back on. I miss the fun, joking and real humanity of this show. This is the kind of show that the Heritage Minister should take interest in as it brings Canadians of all backgrounds together and celibrates our cultures. It is by seeing how other people live that we could dispell the fear many people have of cultures they don't understand. Of course it takes a women's show to open the doors of our kitchens (the warmest, most nurturing part of our homes). It is wonderful to feel the warmth and pride the women have in their homes and the work they do in the kitchen. I also enjoy seeing the pride the men in their homes have in the women they love. Bring the show back, Please!

Hi. My mom and I really enjoyed watching David in Loving Spoonfuls. We were very disappointed when it went off the air. It is a great show. David is so funny with the Grannies he cooks with and their families. Why do we get rid of the good shows and keep the crappy ones? Take care, Lynda

I am so upset that the show has been discontinued. I hope we will be able to receive the information as to when the December special will air off the site. David is fantastic in any show he has done. I have to say my favorite show was with Cosamina and her son Rocco.(She was sweet and he was easy on the eyes) I have made the Tiramisu since having seen the show at least a dozen times. Thank you for the wonderful shows.

It is a real shame when something so refreshing and nice that shows our Canada and its people at its best. David Gale is a wonderful host and is loved by everyone. I for one will miss this show. It should have never been cut. Hope we can get enough people to complain to show that the program was a top hit for alot of Canadians. I wish to send wishes for a wonderful life to all those associated with the program for I'm sure they will not work on anything as enjoyed as this show was by so many.

I cannot believe that Loving Spoonfuls has been scrapped... and for another stupid reality dating show? That is the last thing we need on television. Loving Spoonfuls was humourous, educational and refreshing... not to mention of the few ways we revered our elders. I am sad to hear that the show was cancelled... what a shame.

Well, W-Network, you have done it again. Loving Spoonfuls was one of the best shows ever and now it is not being shown. David Gale is the best. To boot, Coronation Street has been taken off, too, just as I was getting interested! Shame on you. Just wait - David Gale is going to show up on the Food Network, and rightfully so.

I LOVE YOUR SHOW! The stories that these wonderful women tell give us a great insight into why they are the women they are and are held in such high esteem by their families.

I LOVE your show soooo much, and then I went to read some of the other comments and there were too many to get through. It seems as if everyone loves your show !! If I were younger I would marry David...He is just adorable and puts a smile on my face from beginning to end. He has a great personality and knows just how to get his grandmothers to relax and have fun. Please don't stop this show...I love it... and as I can see so do hundreds of others. Sincerely, Barbara

I LOVE this show. It's very interesting learning recipies from other cultures. Because they're made in someones home, they look easy and want me to really try some of them myself. I'm a Punjabi (from Punjab in India) myself but I still love watching people cook recepies from the many other cultures of India. Three CHEERS for this show. Please keep this up!

What a shame I am extremely dissapointed that your the show will no longer be doing new episodes. One great theme of a show that you didn't get to capture was the great cooking of a Maltese grandmother. My grandmother would have been perfect!! Oh well, I'll keep watching all of the re-runs!! Thanks for the laughs!!

Ditto Debra in WPG from June 3. We need MORE of the "Loving Spoonfuls" type of programming that warms hearts and brings families together to laugh and cry...not more brain numbing. I too was shocked to hear that this awesome show was not picked up for more episodes.?????WHY NOT????? Love, A really big fan. Lisa

Hi Pearl Patel, thanks for your comments, nice to see a fellow Trini responding to the show...however, why not try the Pelau recipe? I too was accustom to the only rice and pigeon peas with meat pelau because I am from the South, but someone in Diego Martin gave me this recipe 15 yrs ago and since then my friends and family has never tasted a sweeter Pelau Trini style... Zalina.

Hello David Gale and crew of Loving Spoonfuls. I am a BIG fans of your show and I watch every day. I even bought your cookbook and I am very glad that I can get the recipes that are not in the book on your website. My favourite episode is with Winnie Fields. She's a real treasure. I hope WTN will decide to do more episodes of your show. I would enjoy seeing some new ones. All the Best!!!

We watched the Ukranian show last night - this is our heritage and since we have lost our mothers there are recipes which we would love to have. You had the Ukranian show on last night and today I am on the internet to pick up the recipes and only found one - with the others saying you have to order the book. One recipe was the Ukranian Neleskini (cheese rolls) the other was a pastry - dough in triangles with apple or prune filling topped with a sprinkle of sugar. Can you possibly send me these two recipes - it would be greatly appreciated and our family would love to have an old fashioned Ukranian dinner just like our mother did. Thank you very much, J. West

The show Loving Spoonfuls is and has been the very first TV programme for GRAND MOTHERS that I have known of in Canada in the 27 years I've lived here. Imagine a GRANDMA cooking on TV????? We've been there, done that, maybe some of us thinking of what next...and then there is Loving spoonfuls and David Gale knocking at our door!!!by golly! what a previledge, oh what a joy this was to put together some of our famous recipes which was done with great JOY, and a presentation which cannot be copied because it was the ORIGINAL every time...I do extend my sincere Love and Gratitude to the team of loving spoonfuls for the way they conduct themselves at our home, the way they made us as grandmas feel on one of our special days cooking on TV for all Canada to see. Thank you David. Thank you Loving spoonfuls. With Love and thanks always...my family will never forget you, because the video and photos will live in our home and hearts for my great grand kids to see long after I am gone. ZALINA NARINESINGH

I appreciate how your show has explored the foods of many different cultures. I am so tired of seeing European foods being featured on television all the time. Keep up the great job of celebrating our country's diversity. Great job on teaching the narrow-minded ones that different cultures and customs do exist among us.

Hi David, what a wonderful show you have! The recipes mean so much more when there is a story behind them. I enjoyed your show with Mrs. Maraglia and her son, especially since I LOVE Tiramisu! I hope you don't mind playing matchmatcher! I could help but notice her son Rocco. I am sure you may get a lot of requests but I hope you don't mind passing my email on to him :-) Keep on cooking and bringing those wonderful stories of inspiration! EJ

i just finished watching Hungarian cooking featuring Andrea Vincent. I am of Hungarian descent and growing up I ate very traditional dishes including the ones on the show today. I was reminded of a lovely, simpler time. my father who was our chef passed away a few years back and my mom doesnt cook Hungarian. BUT...I was so impressed with the show overall that I've decided to tackle the recipies and proudly serve to my family. This is a legacy I can pass on to my 3 children of their heritage. I am 35 years old with a rare and sadly deadly form of brain cancer. I am at home taking treatment and feel with help I can accomplish this meal. thanks again, m Marci Gray

Hello David, I watch your show every day on WTN. The variety of cultures I can learn about is so intresting to me.Especially the European ones as many of the recipies are the ones my Mom used to make. They are good refresher courses so to speak as Mom is gone know four years. Your charming personality makes the show a fun one to watch,not like some boring cooking shows.

Hi Guys, I love your show and have been enjoying it since it's inception. Haven't been to the web site for a bit, so was shocked when I saw the bulletin stating that the future of Loving Spoonfuls was under review. Do you mean under review solely for a change in content, or for possibly not being renewed? Say it's the the latter. Tell W to forget about it's new line up of assorted drek and keep loving Spponfuls on the screen. You will never run out of willing participants, nor willing viewers. If anything, we need _more_ (in terms of specials, etc.) not complete cessation. All the best, Debra In Wpg.

Toronto is suffering with the SARS situation and now MADCOW!!!Hey guys, this is OUR TORONT , OUR CANADA, and I will always say "I am a proud Trinidadian choose to live in Canada" And I am willing at this time if Allan and David with their crew and of course WTV to have a BIG BIG show outdoors this summer, to try and help people from both near and far to COME BACK TO CANADA, (TORONTO) again without fear...

Hi David and staff; I really love your show,I started watching it after the yoga show,you know,lying there on the floor, watching an episode,I was hooked, I have been trying some of these recipes and they are great! Everyone in our household enjoys the experimenting cook! I have always enjoyed cooking ethnic dishes, and the Grandmothers that you have onthe show make some of the best . It's great condsidering that they come from the old homelands and have brought the originals with them. I can recall my mother making many German dishes, just like your German Granmothers. Keep up the good work, I love your charm,and your off the wall humor. Just my style. I do have a question, sometimes I have (of course quickly written down the recipes) noticed that some of the ingredient amounts have changed, was this done because Grandma made a boo boo or did you test it and alter it later? Thanks. again.

Thanks to all of you at lovingspoonfuls for making it happen and continuing the great job. One suggestion, for the ingredients, it is good if it is placed in a small visuall box in the corner of the screen (keeps adding during your show), so that if people miss the beginning, they know what has been added as the show goes on. All the best

Hi, loving spoonfuls. I'm 35 years old and I love watching your show every chance I get. I think David does a great job with the Grandma's. You know what David, I was thinking maybe, you should have an episode just for the Grandpa's since father's day is just around the corner, you never know what grandpa you will find that just loves to cook like grandma. Keep up the good work. Bye.

Dear Loving Spoonfuls, I love your show, and I love David's wit and sense of humour. I do have one question, where can I find/buy a metal kulfi, cause I'd like to try the recipe. Thanks for bringing us a wonderful show and David keep up the good work and never ever change. May God Richly bless you and yours always.

Dear Loving Spoonfuls: Wow!!! What better word is there to describe your show??? I love it!!! I have always been an avid cook ( I am 37 years old) and your show is wonderful. Not only do I get some great recipes, the women are so wonderful to watch and your host is adorable! He seems to have such fun and really enjoys being there. So many cooking shows are so hum-drum...mix this, add that....your show is so much fun!I watched the Mother's Day special today and it was a lovely tribute. I want all the recipes from this show.....I can not wait to get your cookbook. Keep up the great job - don't change a thing.....Thanks!

Hello Loving Spoonfuls - my mom, the auctioneer Grandma, Barb Richards was also on the show, and I agree with ZALINA NARINESINGH the Trinidadian Grandmother. The show was filmed at my home in one day, David, the crew, and everyone involved in the show are awesome - beyond words! They came to my home early in the morning prepared to do any cleaning (including my stove!) and like anyone else would do, I had cleaned - cleaned - cleaned before they got there. All the food prep and any handling of foods is done with care and all items are kept clean and sanitary. With health issues at a current high I can only imagine what the crew and all involved are doing to keep standards at their highest. It is amazing to see all that goes into a ten hour day made into 23 minutes of show time! I enjoy every show and feel a great sense of pride whenever I think of my small part in just one show. David is awesome and the perfect guy for the show! Looking forward to many more fabulous shows in the future! Keep Loving those Spoonfuls!

Hello to all Lovingspoonfuls viewers... I am the TRINIDADIAN GRANDMOTHER,I just want you the viewers to know that you can't really see everything on this 30 mins show daily..however, each show was done at our homes and lasted for over 10 loving hours...the crew is fabulous, words cannot explain...the point I want to make is this...washing of hands! after playing with a pet! well believe me sanitation on the show is #1..as well as everything else, too numerous to mention...and doing a show at your home I am sure you will clean your house upside down(this is a Trinidadian expression) especially allll pets in that house...so folks rest assur that the whole house, kitchen,utensils, even our finger nails were so clean, if they could speak they would say DAVID the host, has really out done himself by promoting the show Loving spoonful, and bringing us Grammas to the forefront when some Grandmas are forgotten and tuck somewhere in a Nursing home waiting to die..Thank you David and WTV (u have my email address so reply if u want, viewers) David, I am waiting for my next show...remember when I did my show I never ever saw any of your shows before...but now I know what I know so do have another show for Grandmas who want to come back...I am 60 on April 15 lots of cooking going on at my house..bye

Dear Web Site Visitors, I am honoured and humbled to read your comments and observations. It is a great compliment to our grandmothers and production team that you are so affected by the stories, personalities and of course the amazing recipes on our show. Let me assure you that we wash our hands very often and always after playing with pets, or handling raw meat. We spend a whole day with each grandmother and only the best 23 jam-packed minutes make it to air. Our editors are so good they make the whole experience look like it's happening in real time. With the current state of health in the world we will attempt in the future to show our hand washings and give everyone peace of mind. Thanks for all the amazing comments and keep watching.

Dear David: Recently discovered your show and find it refreshing. These are obviously meals that go over well and can feed many, perhaps even last a day or two.I especially like when we are presented with a whole meal, as in the Moussaka episode because then we get an understanding for what goes together, soup,main dish, salad and desert. Even if you don't go through the recipe of what compliments the main dish at least mentioning what fits well is a help because they are ethnic specific. Just a note, when you fed the dog and pet him and then continued to help prepare the food. This was slightly revolting. Get the camera to show you quickly wash hands under the tap, just for our stomachs sake. Have a great day. Barbara

I just finished watching the show that the previous writer commented on. I too found the grandmother to be cranky and controlling and then she explained it all! She at one time had been a nun, this explains it all for me. I was raised in the Catholic church and taught by a bunch of control freak nuns, this grandmother fit right in to my everlasting pictures of nuns. I don't think she meant to be so abrasive, I think it is a part of her she can't let go of. David, you deserve a medal for not locking her in that pantry or just walking away.

I have rediscoverd cooking since having to retire from work due to health issues. I love your show and love the recipes on the website. It is refreshing to learn from women who for years have cooked and never gotten a nod from anyone, instead of some rich woman who can buy her own show (marthastewart)and fake her way through recipes. Most of the time these so called chefs on cooking shows have ingredients listed that you would have to sell your home to pay for, the grandmothers use everyday or easy to find ingredients. I love the host and love the whole flavor of the show!

To the staff of Loving Spponfuls: What a delightful show to see on air. I hope it continues for many seasons. To see the generations come together and learn from one another is a remarkable accomplishment. We can learn so much from our elders, if we just take the time to listen. The recipes are unique as are the people on the show. Here is one viewer wishing you continued success. Wish other producers could learn from a concept as yours. No violence, no bad language, no blood or sex......hooray for you!!!! What a nice break from the "everyday" shows. Sincerely, S. Roberts

Regarding the previous comment,and to set the record straight: the episode with Goan grandmother Elma Lobo did have some 'edge' but there was never any real animosity between David and the Grandmother. It was merely 'sparring' and 'verbal jousting'. As creator of Loving Spoonfuls I am interested in all types of women for the show with all sorts of personalities-a spicy Goan certainly has her place in the mix. Keep in mind it can take many varied flavours to make one delicious recipe. Vive la difference!
Allan Novak - Executive Producer (creator@lovingspoonfuls.com)
- Monday, May 05, 2003 at 11:00:24 (PDT)
David: I thoroughly enjoy watching your loving spoonfuls show and for the most part find it very entertaining and sometimes quite touching. However, today's featured grandmother was a TERRIBLE guest. She was from Goan and totally berated you during the entire program. You were a very good sport but I think you should have just walked away and let her make the receipe by herself..she certainly did not seem to appreciate your help anyway. I am sure that she must have a 'few' nice traits but definitely did not portray any during this segment. You have such a warm, caring way with the seniors and this lady? did not appreciate or respect you in the least. In fact, it was quite demeaning and I think perhaps your producers should completely avoid these type of personalities. Most grandmothers are loving and kind...I guess this guest was the exception. Anyway, David, keep up the good work and know that you are bringing much pleasure to many viewers. I am sure that you are an excellent father. I have seen you interact with your parents and they must be very proud of your accomplishments. Thanks Winnie L. Sheen

"DAVID" is my favorite thing the grandmas exclaim when he's joking with them and they get a little teased by his antics. It's such fun to watch these divas and learn some heritage recipes! Both my Grandmas passed away before I knew them, so essentailly,I have adopted Grandmas from around the world however I can. Loving Spoonfuls is a fantastic show, a lovely new Grandma every day,even the Queen!LOL. Don't ever stop! Cheers!

I love your show! I'm only 33 but love to see David interact with the Grandma's. I watch it more for the stories from the different cultures and to see David charm the ladies, than I do for recipes! I am Hungarian and saw the one episode with the Mrs. Vincent, but none of her recipes are ones I'm familiar with. I would love to see another Hungarian Grandma - how about mine? You should come to BC, we have lots of culture out here (and great wines in the Okanagan)! I think you have really come up with an original program idea, and it is a great one. I have been getting my Grandma to teach me some of the Hungarian dishes she makes. I want to be able to pass them on to my family some day, not to forget them. She always has great stories about making the dishes with her mother when she was a child. Your show has really encouraged me to spend the time learning more from here. Keep up the good work!

Hi Loving Spoonfuls, I adore your show! It's the only show I make sure I watch as often as possible. I have a two year old son and we watch "Mummy's cooking show" together. He can say "Ukranian,Sudanese, Hungarian etc... oh and fish head soup! I wasn't sure how to explain the rabbit... I have a cute-like-crazy Japanese Mother in law and am trying to convince her to try out? apply for? a spot on the show. How do we contact you about this? She has some powerful stories about being interned during WW2, makes a mean california roll and her son (my husband) is an Elvis impersonator...Loving Spoonfuls material don't you think? Oh and she also plays the piano very well but is shy. David could convince her I'm sure. Please let me know what the next step is. In the meantime my son, Finn, and I will continue to watch. Misao (my Mother in law loves to watch now too). I'm spreading the Grandma message! Thank you so much for producing such an excellent, celebratory half an hour for me to enjoy and learn from everyday. With appreciation and a warm heart, Kelly Shimizu P.S. I think David Gale is wonderful

Hi there! today my friend Michelle and I watched your show. A lovely Italian woman, Mrs. Meraglia (???) made lasagna and tiramisu. The food not only looked delicious but the woman's son Rocco was incredibly appetizing. He announced that he was single and looking for someone and we thought we would send this comment to the guest book and see if maybe he might one day read it and get in touch with us. He was just so cute and sweet to his mother and it was so refreshing to see that now adays. We also made the lasagna for supper and it was really excellent. Well, Rocco, if you read this, send us an email. Thanks Loving Spoonfuls. Keep up the good work! Christina & Michelle

Well to my horror - You only have one of her dishes listed on site and the others now in a cookbook - how EVIL! ha ha - I guess my family will have to wait until I get the cookbook before they can taste some Indo-Dutch food!

Hello out there! I regularly watch W Network and just caught the show with Rocco and his mother Cosimina cooking Italian! The food looked incredible especially the dessert! I especially enjoyed watching Rocco helping out the kitchen. And he even makes dessert too! He is such a cutie! I was hoping the show could help me contact Rocco and his family. I think I have found the perfect match for my sister! She enjoys Italian cuisine and the men too!

I watch the Trinidadian Grand mother this week and must comment about this doubles....I am a Trinidadian myself and until you really taste the doubles you will not understand what it is all about, it is FOOD of course....but actually making a trip to the island, from the airport to the beaches to the shopping malls etc...every where is the food DOUBLES...the most delicious sandwich, full of nutrients that will give you strength, and good health...Grand ma Trini was the best...glad a part of the ALI'S DOUBLES FROM TRINIDAD finally came foward to share in their extra ordinary heritage...which go back since the last world war...this is what my grand parents told me about the ALI'S. Good show David...do bring back grand mothers like these for another show and to share stories like this.

Wow! I just watched the most craziest Loving Spoonfuls EVER! What was that all about with that English guy dessed up as the Queen!?? Wasn't this show supposed to be about David cooking with actual grandmothers? It appeared that David was a bit on the uncomfortable side. Well David what exactly were you thinking when an older gentlemen came in the door dressed in drag??? Hmmm??? Well it was an extraordinary show I must say, and I definately wasn't expecting that one! Unique, but different. David you still managed to pull it off to have a great show as always. Cool! Sasha

I love the show and I'll never get tired of it. David Gale is the best host for the grandmothers. He is so nice to them. I would love for you to cook with my 65 year old grandmother but I think she would be mean to you like the other Italian lady that was on the show. My grandmother is a wonderful cook and she makes good food but she likes to cook without anyone bothering her. I am 13 years old and my sister and I always watch the show when we can. The show is on at 9:30a.m and if I didn't have school I would be able to watch it 24/7. That's all I wanted to say. Thanks for making such a wonderful show and thak you David for being so nice. P.S. Write back if you can. It would be so awesome if you did. From your biggest fan Anthony

Hi there, My name is Sasha and I just wanted to comment about your show: David is so awesome. He is just to sweet and polite to all of the women. Both me and my younger brother watch the show every morning. I was also wondering if David was single. I think he is so adorable and would like to meet him some day. Please write back. Love your show ...(and David) Sasha

Loving Spoonfuls is such a great show... I watch it sometimes at 9:30 a.m., and then if it's a favourite episode, again at 1:30 p.m. You are such a sweetheart... you treat those grandmothers like queens. I love how you make them giggle like the young girls that they still are on the inside. And you're so good about saying the right thing, being sensitive when they tell about the serious, sometimes tragic aspects of their lives. Comedy, history documentary and cooking all in one show. I hope you'll continue to make new episodes! Thank you, David. I sure enjoy what you've already done... in a youth-obsessed society, you have instead showcased all of those grandmothers' lives and philosophies. Now I'm at ease about the idea that someday I'll be the grandmother. (Give me another thirty-odd years though!) Hilary Ounpuu a young mother at home on maternity leave : )

I loved watching the episode with Mary Finson the Polish Grandmother. Up until her know-it-all daughter stole her thunder. I was really frustrated and angry that she would come on and turn culture into low-fat and no interest. We all have to watch what we eat enough to know what to do and to turn an incredibly entertaining and loving lady into a statue all for the limelight towards Rose Reisman was downright dissapointing! To say the least. I am a big fan of your show and watch it every time I can and genuinely enjoy the banterings of family members too but this one should NEVER EVER be invited back. Give Mom a second chance and have her back all on her own. I think her choice of dishes was unique and showed a true fondness for her nationality.....sign me, bitterly dissapointed!

David.... What a pleasant surprise seeing your show today from Welland. We lived in the Niagara Region for 25 years and Elena Turoni is a legend. What an amazing woman..she was wonderful today and so full of life. The early morning shop to Pupo's where we shopped for years, brought back memories. The meat and produce is par excellance. Leonard is still a delight...with his usual dry wit. It was fun to watch you and Elena prepare such a wonderful repast. Salute!!!!

Not only is she a wonderful wonderful cook of Indian food; she has the best sence of humour of anyone I know- and has recently become a grandmother. She lives in Pickering Ontario. I know you will not be disapointed If you choose to do a show with her.

I recently saw the film "The Life Of David Gale" Even thought Kevin Spacey plays David Gale, It was quite interesting seeing how the ending turns out because The Caracter David Gale is so believeable because he turns stories around to make himself look innocent. I also bought the book "The Life Of David Gale." I am looking forward to reading it. Anyone who has not seen that movie should go see it.

The host David Gale is awsome, He really knows how to make the grandmothers feel relaxed, and comfortable, while being filmed. And the series, with the guest: Cathy Palumbo, (The Spicy Sicillian) It was so funny..., Thanks for the intertainment. Sincerly, Charlene Makhoul.

I just found this website and was gratified that you "set the record straight" re:Kevin Spacey (who by the way is nowhere near your charisma and sex-appeal!) I am convinced that everyone of those grandmas are in love with you by the end of the show - your flirtatious and teasing manner just bowl them all over! I was touched to view the show with your own Mother. You come from such a warm and loving family - there is no doubt why you are such a wonderful guy! Congratulations on the birth of your child! What a cause for celebration! Was it a son or a daughter? Your wife is a very lucky woman! My heart is broken! A devoted fan from Calgary, Liza Bennett

Hello David, That David Gale is no where close to You. However, I just want you to know how much I enjoyed all your grandmothers cooking, the young women of today should take some lessons from these grandmas cooking and the natural way they cook with the herbs and seasonings as well...THIS IS WHY THEY LIVE SO LONG AND LOOK SO GOOD, its because of what they ate and foods they prepared for their families...continue this show and I think you should in the future invite all these Grandmothers back to do another dish and have onother seasons for all of them who will still be around...we, the sons and grand sons and husbands of these wonderful grandmas should be proud of a guy like you doing a show like this for our DEAR GRANDMA...thanks David...

Dear David, I just read an article in our local newspaper about you and this new Kevin Spacey movie coming out. Well to be honest I never really knew your Name. I watch your show when I luck out and happen to turn it on at the right time, I think you are fabulous, funny, and give off such a warm inviting sense of real affection for your guests. I watch it not for the receipes but for the interaction that you provide with these women. You seem like a real honest, caring person and I hope that you will keep that in mind when you are wondering what people are going to think of you with this other "David Gale" name floating around. If anyone down here in good old Cape Breton, decides to get you confused with this character I will be sure to straighten them out. So take care of yourself and I hope you get satisfaction with what ever you decide to do about the use of your name out there. Remember, I will always think of you as the great fun lovin guy who really enjoys the company of some wonderful and wise women. Take care of yourself Sincerely, Sheila Anderson ps- Your show just came on and you are making a fondue

I just got off the phone with my Polish grandmother, Barbara, after your show this morning. We both watch your show religiously. She watches it to help recall her memory of cooking and I watch it to call her and have weekly discussions about the food we see and the wonderful women you have on your show. You may know, but if you are not aware, you have a huge impact on immigrants from outside of our country. You give them something to remember, reflect upon and enjoy happier days. Your cooking and discussions with each woman and their tragedy or hope of a new world inspire and make it all relatable to each grandmothers situation. (My nana especially enjoys the "dissing" of the man on each show.) Our favourite is NINA from poland and her cheesecake. What great memories, and we loved how she stated that men are useless in the kitchen. Thankyou very much... if you ever need a new polish nana, she'd be glad to meet you...and I must remember, she thinks you are very cute!!!

Dave: I watched your show today with the English grandmother on WTN. I also read the comments from Gina about the way of baking scones and trifles. To be honest, I don't feel there is anything wrong of using lard for scones and jelly for the trifles. We used to use lard for baking in England. I lived in England for over 20 years. Every chef has their unique character of cooking and baking. I enjoy watching your shows. It's not just cooking. It's a way of life in every household. Keep up the good work......Best regards, Jess

I watched the English grandmother this afternoon but I have to disagree with her regarding putting lard in scones!!! I always put a little marj in mine and they turn out just fine. My husband and I have a great dispute regarding trifle and the correct way to make it. He would agree with the lady to-day but I would have to disagree! My mother never put jelly in a trifle - just sponge, fruit, custard and bags of whipped cream. This is the way I always make it.

I watched the episode yesterday, a Jamaican grandmother. She made a breakfast saute'd salt cod. I'm a Canadian, but my father was from Trinidad and I was lucky enough to go down a couple years ago during carnival. I had some wonderful dishes prepared for me by a lovely Trinidadian woman. One of them being the salt cod for breakfast! She(the Jamaican grandmother) also mentioned a particular herb, a plant. I wish I had had the time to jot things down but knowing you have this web sight, I was hoping to see something on her. Again, I love the show, truely the best cooking show on television. I would very much appreciate seeing something on this lady, she was such a warm,jem of knowlege of her culture. Reminded me of someone I know... Looking foreward to more fabulous episodes!

Although the participants are non-actresses, it's refreshing to see how natural and professional they perform.

What an amazing idea for a cooking show! I love it! I tape it when I'm not home and David is the CUTEST! I've told all my friends and family about the show and they seem to enjoy it when they watch it too. Keep up the great work! The guests are just as amazing as the host! :)

I have to say, I watch your show whenever I can (in between 2 kids) and love it immensely. David has to be the best and most naturally comedic guy I know. The way he brings out the "secrets" of some of these ladies, what a hoot ! I loved the recent show I saw with Susan, the Italian grandmother who liked to swear. By the time the show was over, I was crying. I even made her veal parmegian (with chicken) 2 nights later. I love to learn "the old way of cooking". I too know that when the grandmothers have passed on, it's the young guys like us who need to learn the "old ways" to pass the traditions on. Thank you for producing such a great show and I will continue to faithfully watch and enjoy it. A great fan.

I can't wait until next Season. I watch Loving Spoonfuls regularly and it really is a wonderful show. I have a question though....Is the cookbok available only online thru Amazon or can I purchase it at any bookstore like Chapters?

I love this show! Even if I don't care for the recipe or the ingredients, I still love the show. David Gale does an absolutely great job in every aspect of his hosting role and the pacing and structure of the program make it very easy and enjoyable to watch. I often see reruns of one of my favourite episodes - making the lamb for Easter. I specifically recall David Gale asking "Peter" about his life during the war and all of a sudden there was a brief dialogue about this man's father being assassinated and he presented it with a level of blunt truth and regret and David didn't back away - he let the moment happen and related his own regret and then continued the segment without needing an edit or an awkward pause. It was a really unique and meaningful moment. Since then, I have been completely hooked. Thanks for a terrific program. Rebecca MacBride

I love this show!!! David Gale is hilarious. I was on the floor when he guzzled the brandy to "check to see if it was good" when he was making sweet potato pie with the older black lady who was using her grandson's kitchen - somewhere in the States. She kept trying to maintain her composure but you could see her looking at the cameraman wondering if David was a complete nutcase. Priceless!!And what you caught of the grandson was hysterical. You guys have a gem of a show on your hands. You could run these episodes 10 years from now and they will never be outdated. And you're creating cuisine archives, so to speak, since these are all traditional ethnic dishes. But what amazes me the most is the final product of the show. I worked in T.V. production briefly years ago and it's usually the best stuff that gets edited out but you guys seem to be able to keep all that in the show!! Or do you. The only thing funnier than the show would be a show of outtakes and mishaps, or do those exist with David Gale? He is an outtake. My hat goes off to the director and editors and David. Or do you just let the camera roll? Don't stop making this show - and don't let David Gale out of your sight. Kudos to you!!!

Yesterday was the official launch of the Loving Spoonfuls Cookbook and what a great event it was. The grandmothers came with family members,as did representatives from Penguin Publishing and the W Network to celebrate the recipes and life stories of all these great women. After being entertained by David, we all tasted food from the book. Grandmothers were autographing each other's copies of the book and snapping up lots of extra copies to give to friends and family as Christmas gifts. Thanks to all the organizers for a very special party. Carol Sevitt, author of The Loving Spoonfuls Cookbook

I am 39 years old and just recently laid off from my job, so I have become addicted to your program. I love it! I am curious about any Yugoslavian recipes. I had an old grandmotherly neighbour (since passed on) who used to make the most wonderful different desserts. (Soft cracked wheat, powdered sugar, nutmeg, etc.) I believe it was a Easter traditional dish. I have checked the internet and library and can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anybody know of specific Yugoslavian specifics.

Although I'm not a grandma myself I really enjoy the many traditional recipes each grandma lovingly share from there own backgrounds. The host (David) really brings out the true tender, loving care these grandma's put in each recipe. I myself have repeated many of these recipes in my own kitchen. Keep up the great work and thank you.

Your show is so much fum. Finanlly, someone is appreciating all the goodness that comes from home cooking and traditional methods. These women have so much character that it is hard to choose between what is better the recipes or the people themselves. How about having some grandpas on the show? David may have to control himself when it comes to the kissing and dancing however.

I just saw the episode with the "Indo-Nanny" - it was just so great! These women are fabulous! They all have so much to give - not only the cooking recipes, but also recipes for life. If we just listened to them more often! I love hearing the stories of their lives, all so different, but with that special spice - wisdom. And they haven't had it that easy. Neither did my Granny. She was a wise woman, too.

How about some Pakistani recipes and some more Goan recipes. We have a lot of them and I know for a fact that Canadians have enjoyed some of these at their friends homes and so have some of our American bosses. Good Luck!!

It is such a shame that a loving dear grandmother passed away. I saddens me when you hear about grandmothers and grandfathers passing away they make the world go round. They are inspiring and uplifting with alot of knowledge. That is what makes grandmothers so special. Again sorry for the family who lost their grandmother Jean. Keep your head high and keep reaching for the stars.

Re: Episode #39 This episode was very informative. Like many Babas their recipes are hard to come by. I never got to see how our baba made meat on a stick, but now I know how. I noticed on the TV program when Mr. Gale and Ann Lytwyn went to the grocery, she picked up a cottage cheese (dry-pressed), but in the recipe she used regular cream cheese for the Ukrainian Crepes. Did you notice that? What did she do with the pressed cheese? I made the Ukrainian Crepes, last week. My mother-in-law is Canadian-born of Ukrainian parents, and her son (my husband)grew up on their foods. Both had suggestions. Mom said I needed to make my crepes a little more colored (I have a crepe-maker electric) and my husband (Randy) said it needed more filling - 2 Tbsp not 1 Tbsp. Other than that they liked it. This recipe is included in our cookbook we are compiling for our next family gathering in November 2002. Good work - Keep it up!

I just happened upon your show for the first time today and what a nice surprise. It's terrific, who knows how to cook the "real food" better than somebody's grandmother! Well done! Your Host is kind and interacts so graciously and with such wit with the "seasoned" chefs (if you will pardon the pun)it makes you feel good. It's nice to see the young and the elderley together as it should be. I can't wait to tell my friends about the show. I do have a question if I may.....when I tuned in to your show today, espisode 39 "Anne Lytwyn", you were just putting into the oven "Meat On A Stick". I brought up the receipe from your web, but I would have loved to see her actually making it. Will this episode air again soon? I'd sure like to see it from the beginning.

Hence, a big hug to you, David, whom I've known as a fellow actor and friend of good friends whilst I lived in Toronto.

Hello David: I enjoy watching your program tremendously. I am a grandmother of four. Two granddaughters and Two grandsons, and I love watching all your funny antics. After just watching the show with you cooking with your own mother, I found that wonderful that you can do you work and spend time with your own mother. Some of the grandmothers have had some sad tales and some wonderful things to share. Thank you for bringing this to all of us. Cathy

I would just like to say I really enjoy this show It's entertaining. I liked the one where David and his mother Ruthy, cooked together. That was the best one. I think it was brave as well as great of David's mother to go skydiving at her age not meaning she is old. I'm going skydiving this year, on July 1. I'm so excited. I'm also glad that WTN is going to show repeats of all the past shows. That way enyone who missed an episode from season 1, 2 as well as season 3 can catch up and watch them all. David, Alan and the rest of the gang you all made a terrific show.

This is one cooking show that I love because it not only give you easy recipes but it also give credit to all grandmas out there. We need to pass on to the younger generations the recipes our grandmothers have. Thanks for thinking of a show like this one.

I hope that any of you who may have tried my soup cooked it for more than 5 minutes. The recipe should have read '50' minutes and it doesn't really matter if you cook it longer. It only gets richer in the process. Enjoy!!!

Dear Viewers, Regarding the April 15th time slot change; WTN (to be known as "W") is launching a new schedule and re-launching the entire look of the channel. I would urge everyone to be patient while they figure out what is working best for them. If you would like to support Loving Spoonfuls, the best thing you can do is make sure to keep watching whenever you can so that our ratings stay strong. Keep that word of mouth going about the show. Email your friends and tell your neighbours about Loving Spoonfuls and the schedule changes. That will keep the show on the air and keep David and the grandmothers a-comin'

I absolutley love this show!! I don't get to watch it that often and now it sounds like not much at all unless I figure out my VCR. Who was the programming brains behind the new "no LS in the evening" schedule!!?? Can we lobby for one timeslot on one weeknight?? I don't beleive this show doesn't have enough viewers to sway the powers that be.

Hi David, Mosoltov on your fantastic show. It is by far the best cooking show on TV. You are very funny, it's informative, I love the grandmas, the recipes are wonderful.

I just want to let all the viewers who are asking recipe questions know that I am writing the Loving Spoonfuls Cookbook which will be availabe in the bookstores in the fall. It will contain recipes from many of the grandmothers on the show-- many of which you've been asking about. We've had all the recipes professionally tested (and in some cases adjusted a bit), so they all work. Soon you'll be able to read the life stories of "the greatest grannies in the world", hear about their types of cuisine, see photos of them from their youth and from the show, get their kitchen hints, and learn about the special ingredients they use to make their food so wonderful. There's even a foreword written by David Gale that talks about his experiences cooking with 52 grandmothers. I'm having a great time writing the book and hope you'll all enjoy reading it. Look out for it all across Canada!

Regarding the previous entry, Annette's Kibbe is served fresh...but uncooked. This is the way she has been doing it for 80 years. In our new cookbook coming out in the fall, there will be a cooked version of Kibbe. Thanks...

Simply love your show. Keep up the good work David. This show is truly different from most cooking shows where the host always hogs all the attention and the show is mostly centered around the chef. Yours is warm and welcoming to everyday kindof people who have created an experience all their own with an unforgetaable touch of their very own hands. Thats what cooking shows really shoud be. In this age of superfast gismos and gadgets, it good to see grandmas just use what they have with their very own hands to make food so delicious, just the way you remembered it as a child. Thank you for bringing this type of show to television. Sincerely, Deborah RodriguesApril 1, 2002

Dear friends and fans, that brings to a close the new programs for Season 3 on WTN (or "W" as it will be renamed on April 15th). We will be continuing in re-runs until the new season starts in the fall. So enjoy your favorite shows from the past but take note that our schedule has been changed radically and you will no longer be able to watch us in the evenings. Our new schedule will be posted very soon so watch for it.

Dear David, Yet another fantastic Loving Spoonful season has come to an bittersweet end. This week's show with your mother, father and family was my favourite yet. I can see where you get your kind heartedness, charm and wit - mom and dad, and of course, your own personality too. Have got to try the Cinnamon Babka - it looks so good!!! May you have and enjoy your parents for a long, long time - they are special. Loved the family pics too. Anyway, may you have a blessed Passover with your family and my mother and I wish you lots of masl and happiness in your life. Best regards, Maria Stevens

Just love your show. It is one of the most interesting cooking shows on T.V. right now. You never know what is going to happen. David is the right host. He can work with a grandmother who is a bit snobbish and have airs but make lightly of the situation. This makes for watching enjoyment. I like to see him be quick of wit with some of the grandmothers and be able to joke back just a quick as some of them and still make everyone feel at home and at ease. Good work. Hope show continues for a long time. Carol

I truly appreciate watching your show. Not just for the recipes, but for the warmth and the jovial entertainment it conveys between David and the grandmothers. It makes up for a lot of the "garbage" that is on television these days; constant violence, sex and more violence (and wondering what it is doing to the children let alone me). Your show puts happiness and kindness back into my heart! Thank you ever so much. (And, I am not even a grandmother yet!)

Hi there, Loving Spoonful is definitely one of my favorite programs on T.V. Last night I watched the episode where there was a Lebanese Grandmother cooking. I must tell you that I was rather disappointed at the way she prepared the food. It was VERY different then the way my mother and myself have always prepared it. She failed to use many of the important Lebanese spices that are essential to Lebanese cooking and the preparation of the food overall was disappointing. I am hoping that Loving Spoonful will have another show that will demenstrate the proper way to prepare our delicious dishes. My mother would be more than delighted to prepare some of our Lebanese dishes for you and share some of her interesting stories. Hope to here from you soon. Sincerely, Najwa Chibani

We love your show! Wish we could be there to try the food as it is prepared - just like home! It takes me back to visits to friends homes when I was in high school in Toronto. And, even though some of the recipes have ingredients hard to find here, the homey kitchens and humourous conversations make us want to try them for ourselves. Your show brings a sense of warmth to our cold Canadian winter. Keep up the good work!

I truly relish watching your show. Takes me back home a long ways to my own Grandmas cooking. I'm from India and have a great love for spicy foods. Hopefully oneday I can also be on the show sharing some delicious indian cuisine. I simply enjoyed the Goan and Parsi shows and can relate to those foods as I used to have them back home. Keep up the wonderful variety which I think draws everyone young and old to watch this well put together show. Debbie Rodrigues February 24, 2002

My husband and I adore your show. I am glad to see a TV show, that gives us a glimpse of the "real" Canadian kitchens in our multi-cultural country. Thank you for teaching me recipes that my great-grandmother would have taught me. Keep up the great work.

I have seen all the shows with my three daughters and we really enjoy watching. I think that it is great that you are doing a show of this kind because there is so much that we can all learn from these grandmothers both in culture and in customs from each country. My daughter's ages are 14, 13, and 11 and to see them so tuned in when the show is on definitely means that they are interested and are learning from it. Keep up the great work.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your show today. The Parsi Grandma was so very interesting I wish I could spend hours talking to her. After reading Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance, I had so many questions regarding the Parsi people and this Grandma answered so many. Thank you again for such an interesting show.

I love the show. I saw it for the second time today, and I paid attention this time....lol. I was in awe of David. He has the best job in the world. Cooking. I would love to be a full time cook, or a host of the same show. If you ever need a guest host David, look me up. I Just finished watching the show today with Gisela Wuensch. I would like to know how I can get a hold of her email address, or something. I have a piece of paper with her name on it. My grandfather had it in his belonging. I got a hold of it after he passed on. It looks like an autograph or something. Can you hook me up somehow? Thank you in advance for your time and services.

We just couldn't stop laughing. It made us feel like we were back home, in India. Hopefully, next time you get to make Goan sweets and meet a much sweeter goan grandmother. Take care and Thank you.

Hi fans, many people are asking about Elena Turroni's cookbooks. Here's the story: Elena Turroni's books are available by contacting her manager, John Belcastro. His e-mail address is johnbelcastro@hotmail.com There are two books currently in print. They are: "From the Kitchen of Elena Turroni" 1982 "Elena Turroni turns 90 and is still turning out cookbooks" 2001 And let's hope Elena keeps writing cookbooks into the future!

As usual, I love it and immensely enjoyed it ! All the grandmothers looked sooo beautiful and indeed you look sooo handsome yourself. But most of all the last part where you sang a song for all the LOLA's. What can I can, David? You're fabulous. Take care always and shows like this must forever be on... Nina

I am now hooked and I have been cured of my channel-surfing tendencies - at least for the duration of your show! Thanks to you, David, and to all the beautiful women who share the screen with you. The recipes are fantastic and the insight into their lives are priceless. I wish my mother was still here with us - she would have been perfect for your show. Mary L.

my friend who was my neighbour at that time gave me a receipt and i have forgotten the fine points to making it is there anyone from india who could help me. it was made with lentels that were left out overnight in a solotion of salt water (i think) and rice also in a seperate bowl then you ground them and fried them in a fry pan i think they were call dosa ( i am not sure that is the proper spelling.) and then they were filled with shredded cabbage that was made as following mustard seeds popped then add shredded coconut and water (i think or coconut milk) and tumeric and you let it steam a little while til soft very good. if you know the proper way of doing this i would please like your input. thank you.

Dear David and crew of Lovingspoonfulls: There is very few shows that capture the love that grandmothers give to their family and friends. The love and the twinkle in the eye is one thing that comes threw when David flurts with them. Even when they don't like to admit its ok they can't help a cute guy flurting with them. It's adorable!! Also when David goes for the occassional special touch (booze) or the nip here and there. Whether its our Moms or Grandma's the love we remember and hold dear comes out when we watch the show. Thank you for giving us the love.

Loving Spoonfuls, I really enjoy your show and think it was about time we finally have such a unique twist on our Canadian culture. The Christmas special just goes to show how diverse our country is and you managed to capture the true meaning of this holiday season. Thank you

Both my Croatian Grandmother and Polish Grandmother passed away before I could benefit from their recipes. Your show helps fill that missing void! Nina Witkowski was an absolute little cutie pie and I can't wait until you can get a "Croatian Baba" on an episode. Keep up the great work!

Dear Loving Spoonfuls, I caught your holiday special ten minutes into the program today and enjoyed it very much. My wife will be sorry to have missed it.There will be little hope of peace on earth and good will toward men until I record it when it repeats tomorrow. You make my heart brim over with pride for this wonderful country. How nice to see real folks with their friends and family gathered around the table to enjoy their food and eachother. Let's keep it that way.

After reading quite a number of comments, there is not much I could add. It is about the wonderful time you have with your quests preparing the ethnic dishes that we all grew up with. I am from polish descent and enjoy all the receipes that I have seen prepared on your show Loving Spoonful. I want to ask - Is there a cookbook out there about these grannies and their receipes? You could even add pictures showing each granny while in the kitchen with you. Thank you David and crew for a wonderful show and keep it going for a long time.

David, you are a "doll". We watched your holiday special last night and it was fantastic! Lots of laughs, and great food, as per usual. I hope the holiday special is the first of many to follow. I think you really light up the lives of those Babas, David. Will continue to enjoy the rest of this seasons episodes. Keep 'em coming! Happy holiday/New Year.

Wow! What a great show the christmas special was, it was nice to see some of the grannies I have seen cook with David. As I was channel surfing last night I came across the special - I was hooked. I have been a fan for over a year when I first came across the show. I really enjoyed the playfulness that David had (and has) with each Grandma. It always brings back the warmth of being with my late grandma. I am also pleased that you treated them so well and brought them together - and that number! Keep up the good work. While I don't cook, I am sure entertained each time.

I watched your Christmas special with all the 'grans'. GRRREAT!!! Now that I'm a 'nan', it's very important for me to carry on my French Canadian culture and pass this on to my grandchildren. My grandson is at the age (almost 13) where he appreciates the two cultures that run through his veins. He insists on helping out with the tourtieres, feves au lard and ragout de boulette; he's also gets very creative when preparing his rice and peas and curried goat. He traditionally has made the stuffing for the turkey for the past 4-5 years. It's very important to pass tradition on to our loved ones. LOVE YOUR SHOW - KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. I never miss it.

I just watched your Holiday show. "It was great!" David is an amazing host. I thought it was wonderful bringing all the different people together to do this show with all the different foods. When everyone said a little prayer before dinner, I actually became teary eyed! I was was very nice. What can I say about David! He's great. I really love this show. What sets it apart from the rest is not what we learn about cooking but about other people and cultures. I don't get to watch all the time but when Im changing channels and looking for something to watch and loving spoonfuls is on, I look no further! GREAT SHOW! Keep doing what your doing! I look forward to seeing more. Michelle.M

Hi Lovingspoonfuls and to the great David..... I just happened to be watching the show today (not knowing it was on) when I happened to see David was making Black Cake aka Jamaican Christmas Cake. My mommy is a native from Barbados and the way we make black cake is so different then Jamaicans. But in many ways the same. I think this year, when my mommy makes her black cake, I will take Jessie Salmon's recipe and make it. My cake will be made alot easier and alot faster then my mommy. Thank you David for showing a little of the islands. Thank you Jessie for teaching me a different way to make black cake. Suzie Scarborough, Ontario CANADA

Hi David and Crew of Loving Spoonfuls: What a fabulous show! I try not to miss an episode and when I do i feel like I'm missing something. You have everything...I laugh, I cry, it becomes a part of me. I especially love the episodes with the German, Hungarian cooking. My grandmother was Romanian and was the best cook ever. Sadly she passed away 8 years ago and although I can make most of her recipes, they still don't taste the same. When I see the "Omas" cooking their dishes, it's like my Oma is there as well. Continued success with the show and look foward to the publishing of a cookbook. As a matter of fact, put me on the list now. I don't want to miss anything. Thanks for my 30 minutes of sanity in a crazy world.

I love to watch your show on cuisine Quebecois. I was born and raised in Sagunay Lac Saint Jean region, of Quebec. For us a tourtiere is a deep dish pie that contains, beef, pork, and cubed potatoes, in the old days it used to be made with wild game meat. What was on your show today, we call Meat Pie, and serve it as a side dish, not as a main course. That mistake is often made specially around Montreal, even though its in the same province, just crossing over the Laurentien Park, gives you a totally different take on the same recipe. I still like you show, thank you very much!

Dear David, Kudos to you and your team. I thought the 'filipino' grandma Aida episode was a wonderfully entertaining and true to life experience of the 'filipino culture of family and cooking'. I am very impressed with your ability to capture those cultural moments, while respecting and making the grandma's feel comfortable in being themselves. I can't wait to try the cassava recipe, Mommy Lola Aida and you made it look easy!
Toronto, Canada - Monday, December 10, 2001 at 08:33:22 (PST)
Dearest David... You're fabulous! The way you keep all the mothers & grandmothers comfortable, you have a very good way of making them SPECIAL. You're down-to-earth, alot of sense of humour, and just your overall personality. You honestly make me laugh and at times cry when the "chefs" start to tell their whole life stories. I feel how they feel coming from a different country - immigrated here in 1984 with my mom, Aurora and with two brothers & a sister from the Philippines. I've watched your show many many times and all the time I enjoyed it. You're indeed a FABULOUS host and just admire you on how you treat all the mothers & grandmothers with alot of respect and adoration. David, I also saw at the Paramount Theatre on a Friday evening. I wanted to approach you and shake your hand or even give you a BIG HUG... but somehow my shyness stopped me from doing it. And then now, I said to myself: "I shoulda done it." Next time, I see you at the Paramount theatre or anywhere else, please don't be surprise or afraid to see a Filipina lady in her 40's to approach you with a big adoring smile and ready to give you a BIG WARM HUG!!! I'm your big fan,David and please keep it up and don't get this CELEBRITY feeling get into your head. And I congratulate you and the wonderful crew of LOVING SPOONFULS a well-deserved Gemini award. My mom, Aurora, is also a very good cook and maybe one day she'll be on your show... There's way too many Filipino dishes that NEVER were introduced yet. I saw your show with the Filipina MommyLola-Aida who made the Laing, Cassava cake, etc. You're funny, affectionate, and indeed just wonderful. Take care, David and God bless you!!! Nina

David, I love the show. It makes me think of my childhood, as an immigrant child (coming to Canada in 1953 from Switzerland) My mother was a cook just like many of the wonderful grandmothers you have on your show. In fact Hiedi Kuhner from Switzerland cooks much the same way my mom did and when she took you out to her Maggi patch I almost cried, my mom always used maggi and I also use it in a lot of things I cook. I still have the maggi plant my mom gave me 36 years ago when I got married. Keep up the great work and I will continue to tune in. Good on you for the Gemini. I saw the interview with Vicki Gabereau,I enjoyed it as much as your show.

Hello Loving Spoonfuls, We would like to congratulate the whole crew of your show for the way you made it so easy for Giselle Boudreau and I to look like 'stars' in the Nov.19th episode of Lovingspoonfuls. David especially was very professional yet was able to made the filming so easy for us, and lots of fun. So many people have congratulated Gisele and I for the enjoyable halfhour but the credit must go to David,Shelley Hoffman and all their wonderful team. Thank you all very much and I'm sure the Belgian community will join us in wishing you many many more Gemini quality shows in the future. Yvonne and Gisele

Hi David I hadn't gotten a chance to see your show until last night. It was the one with the Sicilian Grandmother Cathy and her daughter. I never laughed so hard in my life when I heard the "#$%#&$" and the comments made by both you and Cathy! Apparently from what I've heard, this is just par for the course. Keep being human and showing us men can be just like one of the girls!

Dear David: I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but, yesterday I was not feeling well and needed to rest on the couch for awhile. So I turned on the TV and there you were with this lady called Cathy. You were preparing some sort of Italian bread. You were a hoot and so was she. I couldn't believe the words that were coming out of her mouth!! Anyway... I was interested in the bread recipe and the veal recipe. I waited until the end of the show to see if you had a web site. Sure enough there was the web address. So here I am at your web site. I have found the recipes and will try them on my family. Look forward to watching more of your programs. You should have my mother on your show. She was born in Austria and is the best cook in the lower mainland of Vancouver BC. My mother has handed down many recipes to me that I cook and bake for my family and they are most impressive.

David: I just watched this evening show of the Sicilian grandmother Cathy. I really enjoyed the show it made me laugh as well as I am Sicilian I would like to get copies of the veal, bread and nvigliolata. This show really hits home and when it is on I call my mother and daughter Maria to watch as we are all are interested viewers. I have never attempted to make bread but this nonna cathy has inspired me to attempt it because she has a recipe most mothers when asked how they make bread they tell you a little bit of this and a little bit of that but no measuments. I also enjoyed the interaction with the daughter and I can relate to the invigliolate even though I was just in Sicily in September of this year and there they make them with this plant called niebbita wich you really after aquire a taste for therfore I prefer the filling that nonna Cathy made. Also the veal I'm always looking for different ways to make veal for dinner parties. Anyway we love your show I hope I can get those recepies. Love. Tina Zappulla from Scarborough.

I may be an upwardly mobile self-indulged yuppie, yet nothing grounds me more nor humbles my loftiness than to be in your kitchens with your various grandmas. Recipes with bubbies, cooking with legacies, makes me realize how much I've missed, how I wish I had a grandma and how much your grandmas fulfil a need in me. Thank you for both the laughs and the tears and especially for the respect much due for those enduring women I wish were part of my own life. Because of your show, they are in a tiny yet very significant way NOW a part of me and my heart. Thank you, Rena

In the TV episode with Edna Staebler it was not made clear thae the sausages and veggies go in the oven till browned and tender. It gives the impression that the sausage/veggie mix stays on the stove and boils gently until this neighbour comes over to eat. Thus, it didn't sound too appetizing.

I absolutely Love this show. After losing my mother this year I realized just how many of her recipes were lost with her. I am now on a mission to gather as many old time recipes as possible, so that the warm home cooking won't be lost to my children. I want them to taste exactly what I'm talking about when I talk about OMA's Spatzle and red cabbage, or OPA's potatoe pancakes. Thank you for this show and the warm feelings, smiles, and good chuckles it brings with it.

What a great show. You have to keep in on the air for about 5 more years - that way when I do make my Mother a Grandmother I can have her on the show. Wouldn't that be a great way to announce that I was pregnant!!!

Hello; I just love your show! I am not a grandmother yet,but I enjoy your show so much. It warms my heart to watch and always make me want to go to my kitchen and cook for my family. I was just wondering if you are going to be making new ones. It seems that you put the same one on all week. This show should be different everytime for mom's like me who really enjoy cooking. I get great idea's from your show. My husband is late for work because he enjoys it so much hehehehe. My husband is German and loves his food. So keep up the good work and try to get more stories on. Wow I sound demanding!!!!! I am not just love your show. And your host he is a blast. A very loving spoonful family Julie Steinke

What a wonderful show! David's enthusiasm for the show is evident in every episode in the wonderful way he interacts with his grandma guests... and it's clear that the grandmothers are enjoying it all as much as David and the viewers. Way to go! A wonderful cooking show for us 'foodies' with an opportunity to learn about the culinary and other traditions of our elders from diverse ethnic backgrounds. Keep up the wonderful work! A suggestion... how about grandmothers from Canadian provinces? Newfoundland has unique cuisine, culture and heritage and Newfoundlanders are wonderful storytellers. David, how'd you like to learn how to make fish'n'brewis, jiggs dinner, toutons and bakeapple cheesecake?

Dear David, I enjoy the program very much. I love good food and family and grandmothers/mothers/aunts. You do a great job with the women. I am going to try some recipes although I know from experience these are tried and true and make everyone at the dinner table say auuuughhh and yummmmm. Thanks for the new and original concept television programming. I am passing on the show and you to all my 40 something friends. Keep up the fun work and your personal flair. I don't know if I am old enough or original enough to get on the program but my mom and dad from Nova Scotia have a few good recipes that viewers may like and use, i.e. Seafood Chowder and Blueberry or Apple Pie, the best.

When I was a child, about 45 years ago, my mother used to buy ORANGE flavored Tapioca pudding to make. It tasted like orange flavored pop (not orange juice) and we loved it. I have tried for years to find it. I'm sure my grandchildren would love it & wondered if you knew how I could duplicate it. Maybe you even know where I could find some! Thanks.. J Henderson

I was watching the program last night and thought I must write in and tell you how much I appreciate your genuine interest in the cooking and lives of the individuals you have on the show.You have fun, but you also show real respect for the stories and lives that the guests describe to you. I really enjoy hearing all of their stories. It reminds me of listening to the stories of my deceased grandparents, which I used to love to listen to. Thank you for providing a show which gives Canadians an insight into the varied and interesting backgrounds of the people who make up this great country.

David, I can't tell you how much I love your show! Most recently, I must have seen the episode with Baba Loza about 3 times! I am a first generation Macedonian Canadian and I just perfected the pastry she made called "Banitsa". I say, if the world is coming to an end, I'd like to go while making this pastry!! My parents are from the former Yugoslav republic of Macedonia and we have a different twist to this speciality. We call it "burek" which is similar to Banitsa in texture, it's the same flaky, buttery delicacy usually filled with minced meat and eaten with yogurt as an accompaniment -- to die for!!! There's a second variation called "maznik or zelnick" which is a lighter, fluffier, breadlike consistency of a pastry traditionally filled with leeks and feta or feta and eggs. Let me tell you it's quite a challenge to stretch the dough as thin as she did it takes years of practise!!! You are extremely talented with the diversity of culinary experiences from various ethnic backgrounds. I married into a Jewish family oy vey! I can make great latkes and blintses already!! Keep up the fabulous work! Lydia

Hi, David I just wanted to let you know that I watch your show whenever I can and it's excellent and fun. But, last night, on the September 5, 2001, episode, you had a Yugoslavian "baba" Zorka cooking for the show, and I am from Yugoslavia too, but I noticed that she didn't know how to speak our language very well at all and even say how "cake" in Yugoslavian. She said something that was totally not right, as the correct name for "cake" would be "torta" or "kolac" and not what she had said. Also, the traditional "sarma" that she prepared for you is not the kind that is actually the kind prepared by most Yugoslavians. First of all, the cabbage (for the sarma and for the noodles that she prepared later) has to be sour cabbage (like sauerkraut), and not fresh cabagge, and most people don't use tomato juice, and we place ours in the oven, place some dried ribs and bacon, and put a lot of water over and let it cook for at least 2 hours, this way was so unfamiliar to me, that it didn't "feel" Yugoslavian, even though she was a short-order cook. But, I do appreciate that my country was featured in your great show. Keep up the good work, Jana

Actually, I won't be there either with the demands of Family, etc. ( I'm teaching Pre-scool Music and Movement Full-time.)

My family and I love watching this fantastic show, and David is so entertaining and funny. Grandmothers are the best cooks in the world, they are so filled with wisdom, laughter and life. They are truly inspiring. David, in your travels and cooking fun with all of the wonderful grandmothers, could you please find me a recipe for "Pickle Soup" - a Polish recipe. My husband's mom use to make it all of the time for him, but she has passed away, and she didn't have the recipe written down anywhere. Thank you for such a great show, we can hardly wait for the new season to start.

On a visit to Calgary, we were delighted to find your show on tv. It was on July 21, 2001 with Rose Reisman and her mother. I am sorry we are unable to see your program at home, but Loving Spoonfuls helped to make our trip to the Canadian Rockies even more memorable! We would love to have both of their recipes for mandelbrot/biscotti. If you could email them to tahtberg@aol.com or mail them to our home @ 8214 Tally Ho Road, Lutherville, Maryland 21093, USA, it would be greatly appreciated!

Sudbury, Ontario Canada - Thursday, August 02, 2001 at 16:36:38 (PDT)
I really enjoy your show. I caught it once and am hooked. I find it very enjoyable and entertaining. The show does not just "sit there". However I went to your web site to download some of the recipies and normally I get what I ask for (selected text) one page and that is it. when doing so from your web site I selected Dolomathi and got two additional pages with only your web address printed on it. So I tried again with another recipe and again the same thing. What a waste of paper. I have done this several times at other sites and this has never happened so It is not my system. Can u please check into this or consider making a printer friendly file. I may not be the only one experiencing this problem. Thankyou keep up the good shows. P.S. I have a Grannie who likes to cook and also enjoys your show.

If I remember correctly there were different grape leafs and which is the best to use or does it really matter?

It is easy to see why everyone loves having you in their kitchen and how you make them feel special. The audience not only gets to see wonderful meals being prepared but they also receive history lessons and mini biographies that are not read about in books. I look forward to seeing your show and hope that you come visit the maritimes.

Hello David, I watched a re-run of your show featuring grandmother, Mary (sorry I've forgotten her last name) and Rose Reisman. I found this show to be one of the best yet? It was filled with tips, hints, recipes, personal history and most of all FUN. I am a big fan of Rose Reisman and was delighted when her mother, Mary, mentioned her daughter, Rose, would be on the show, she writes cookbooks. I knew automatically who she was referring to. Keep up the great work and your choice of Grandmothers is excellent!!. Regards, Bev Gilavish

(cont. from prev. message) ... It's been an amazing experience to gather these recipes --- the memories triggered by the foods, or even just talking about the foods, are so powerful... I'd definitely encourage other fans of your show to dig through their own grandmothers' (or mothers'!) recipe collections too, and see what comes up! The potential for bonding is phenomenal... Again, kudos to all of you on the show for bringing all of these wonderful grandmothers into all of our lives!

Congratulations on a fantastic show! What a fabulous idea. There's something so incredible about grandmothers' cooking, no matter what your ethnicity. I suppose it's something to do with the fact that these are the flavours that we grow up with, and the fact that we know how much love and care goes into their cooking... And of course, our grandmothers have had a lifetime to perfect these recipes! I've been compiling a collection of my own grandmother's recipes, which I've posted on my web-page at

Watched my thrid episode yesterday and felt I had to write in and say how much I enjoy the show. Dave does an excellent job of relating to these women and getting them to tell their "stories" In yesterday's installment he was with an Irish Grandmother (I'll just call Ms. Heart Attack on a Plate - sorry I'm horrible with names) and got her talking about her collectables.....what a great idea..was very touching and he handled the situation with great tact and humour - Bravo! Whoever is picking the "ladies" is also doing an excellent job. I just know they could give me some good advice on my marital status (36 and still single - yikes!!!). Leaves me wanting more every time - keep up the good work!!

I love your show! It's a very funny, touching, heartwarming, beautiful way to spend half an hour. You make me laugh, cry and most importantly remember the wonderful days I spent in my own grandmothers kitchen "helping". My favorite thing about that room (besides the aroma) was a spoon rest which read "No matter where I serve my guests, they seem to like my kitchen best." I have always tried to live up to that motto and when people come to visit that's where I entertain. They sit and watch me cook and taste test and have a lots of fun.

Hey David, I saw your episode when you were cooking with Malati Srinivasan. I really loved the show. I was just hoping if you can answer a few questions for me. I hope you don't mind, I mean with your busy schedule and all. Well here goes, I wanted to know where I can find that blender that you showed on Malati's episode, I'm refering to the "stone on stone" blender. I also wanted to know if your shows take place in the U.S.A. or Canada. The reason for why I wanted to know was because on Malati's episode you pointed out that Malati's daughter teaches classical Indian dance, that really caught my attention. I was just thinking that if Malati lives in Canada then I can probably take some dance lessons from her daughter. Well, I have to go now but I hope you can get back to me soon with the answers to my questions. You can get back to me at ireenqureshi@hotmail.com Hope to hear from you soon, Your fan Ireen

My mother and I have been trying to videotape my grandmother's food preparation for years. We wanted to capture the skill, knowledge, love, history, and culture that go into every meal she makes. I think it is fantastic that someone else had the same idea and made it accessible to so many people. In every episode I see a piece of my grandmother's story repeated in each different culture. Thank you.

Hello Paulyne, I read your comment on Loving Spoonfuls page and I must say I disagree that David is perpetuating the "older" grandma myth. What he is doing is showing these ladies that their work has value too and no matter how old you get you still count. Society on the whole has been leaving anyone over 65 out of the picture and you hardly see them in the media and on television anymore so I think it's great what David is doing. If he starts putting people that are 50 on the show he might as well put people that are 40 and 30 because the point is anyone can be a grandmother but not anyone can have the life experience without first living. I know you may have meant well by saying about including people younger than 50 as well but there is so much out there for us already as younger people why take this way from the "older" grandmas?

I love all your shows,I watch them on Saturady mornings on WTN by myself or with friends. I think you David are amazing with what you are doing with the grandmothers. It makes them feel so loved and their skills useful. You are doing a wonderful job, keep it up. And don't ever stop doing the show. My dream is to watch it when I am a grandmother and you are a grandfather and maybe we can cook together sometime :) I am now just 22 so I have a while to go:)) Keep doing whatever it is you do to make those grandmothers love you....Favorite episode is all of them.

I remember laughing so hard I forgot what you guys were making. I find that through your show I am introduced to different cultures and now have a new found respect. Thank-you very much for cooking up a little humor and education in my life!

I have just read in our local newspaper ( The North Bay Nugget ) that you are searching for grandmothers for your cooking show. Why do you perpetuate the "older" grandma myth. Many of us are closer to 50 years of age and very happy to spend time with our granchildren. And, some of us do really cook when dial a meal isn't an option! My generation of Grandmas, Nannas and Omas have careers and often care for the grandkids full time too. And we love it. Please think of this in your cross country search. Sincerely, P. Charron

I have only managed to catch your show about 5 times, but I tell you, it fills me with joy each time. David, you really have a way with those ladies -- you bring out their beautiful natures and your playfulness clearly makes them feel very special and loved. I get teary-eyed and all smiley right at the end of the show when you honour the women for their talents and for what they shared with you. We need more of this kind of honouring of our Grandmothers. So thank you for doing this with such grace and charm and respect. You are lucky to have made so many new Grandmothers! I have already suggested my Nana for your Grandma search, but I also think you should consider a Coast Salish woman (indigenous to the Vancouver area) who can tell you stories about the West Coast and cook you some amazing West Coast food. I could suggest a few people... Keep up the good work and thank you to all you Grandmas for sharing your traditions, your warmth, and your knowledge. I honour you. Kamala Todd, Vancouver

hello, thanks for great programs.I do have couple of favourite guests..Sylvia Evans and Baba Regine.They cook simply, economically, deliciously and with common sense from their experience in life. And David...keep up the little flirtations. At our age, it makes our day when someone thinks we are still worth flattering and still beautiful enough to be noticed. The way to a man's heart may be through his stomach but the way to a woman's heart is through her worth to others. My mind still thinks as a 25 year old even though I have many wrinkles , etc, but my body doesn't seem to get the message at times. But that's O.K. By the way, did you know the reason that grandparents and grandchildren have such a great bond? They have the same "common enemy"....the parents. Ha! Ha! Jokes aside...your programme is wonderful and it gives us a special contact with others of our age when glamour and youth seem so all important in the world today. Keep up the good work....merci et bon appetit. Eleanor Barrucand. Edmonton. Alberta. Canada.

One question - do the grandmothers have to actually BE grandmothers with grandchildren? Or do you work with any older 'granny-like' ladies?

I just watched your show with Baba [sp?] Regine and loved it. The recipes were great and seemed easy and made me think maybe I CAN cook vegetarian! And Regine was wonderful - what an interesting lady! and David you are terrific! I'm not much into cooking shows but I like this idea of cooking with grandmothers. Thanks for doing these shows.

I'm not sure who I enjoy more David or the Grandmas ... I think you've really captured something special with this show as so much cultural and personal history is caught up in food and cooking for so many people. I know that there are just as many stories as there are recipes in my Grandmothers cupboard. If you are ever in need of a FABULOUS grandma, my Ukranian Baka would be a great guest on your show!!! Thanks for so many enjoyable moments, and taking the time to let us get to know someone else's grandma.

This is the BEST cooking show EVER! I watch it with my children (ages 5 and 11) and they enjoy it as much as I do. What a fantastic idea it is to have grannies sharing their knowledge and experience -- we have so much to gain from being given the opportunity to "listen in". David treats these amazing women with such respect and "love". I really love the flirting that always seems to happen! David, I really appreciate the questions that you ask these women about their lives and their families; I think it is wonderful that my children are hearing about how these women have made it through this life. What can I say? I could go on and on with accolades for "Loving Spoonfuls", but I'll spare you! This is definitely one show that we *always* watch or tape (which is saying a lot really), and we feel like we have benefited in many ways after we have watched an episode. Thanks so much for such a fabulous, entertaining, moving, educational program. Jan

I am with out grandma's and miss that interaction that feels so dear in the kitchens. I too loves to tease in a gentle way their ideas and routines.

From where they where from to the amount of grandchildren and what they are up to. He dances, and sing with the grandmothers and makes them smile. To me that is nice.

Hi Why don't you do a Hungarian grandma? My mom's family is Hungarian and they are the best cooks! Of course, they are all crazy and you wouldn't want to use my family. This is just a suggestion about doing Hungarian stuff because the food is soooo good! Some recipe ideas are poppy seed roll, chicken paprikash, and langosh (some people call them elephant ears), and of course, goulash. Karen

It is absolutly refreshing, that a young man shows appritiation to an older person. My experience is with my children that they know "everything". By the time I am dead they will be at the age when they want to say thank you, you were great but it will be to late. And all the stories how young people behave with older people on the street, no respect or giving their sit up on the bus et. There should be much more shows similar to yours to replace the violence with love and family appritiation. I am sure I am thanking you for the show in the name of thousand mothers and grandmas. Keep up the good work. PS. My husband's grandmother was the greatest and I always will think about her when I eat turkey even the bones were tasty, and she had a very hard life but she was full of life and smile till the end.

Hi David;we finally got the internet and I can let you know how much I enjoy your show! The kids watch it with me and I love that we can all laugh together. I really enjoy the old family pictures and the emphasis on cultural cooking. I was telling Nancy that my husbands mother would be a perfect guest on your show. She grew up in Russia,of German descent, and has a great funny way about her. She has some specialities that the family eats regularly. She likes to be the center of attention with her stories and I think she might be perfect for you! Take Care Cindy

I very much enjoy your show, to me it's the Grandmas that make it special. They are so warm and welcoming, gives me a great feeling every time I watch. As someone who recently lost both her Grams, it brings back great memories too.

A wonderfully entertaining show. David Gale is a natural at what he does and the grandmas all feel at ease around him, it is evident. Anyway, I am a horrible cook and I hate cooking, so if you've got someone like me watching this show, then you know you are doing something right!

Loving Spoonfuls makes my day when I see the show. I love meeting and being allowed into the kitchens of these wonderful women. It really looks as though both the host and the guest 'chef' are having a great time with each other and the subject (food and culture) at hand.

I'm going to try some of the recipes from the web page, thank you so much for posting them, as I'm always too enthralled with the fun on screen to write anything down.

Please keep this wonderful show alive!

I am embarrassed to say that I watched your show out of sheer desperation on Sun night on WTN.What a treat it was; I felt like I was in a time warp with Rose's mother and Rose. Having grown up in a similar neighbourhood in Montreal, our kids are still asking about Montreal cooking. So, please do more (although my mother passed away 11 years ago, our kids still love their AUNT ELSIE's cooking, for similar reasons. one of our daughters still has the same weight issues (SEE: Jane Hawtin Live: Jan, 1997;dR mIRIAM KAUFMANN: tORONTO hOSPITAL: cOURTNEY rOBSON) . Sometime this month , we will find out whether along with the Learning Disability that WTN was instrumental in assesing (through the wonderful Hotel Dieu in Kingston), she also has gallstones and an ulcer. So, bottom line is; e.g. where would I find a veal brisket in a place like Belleville (or Kingston, etc/)? And also, please continue to do similar shows: we will be tuning in regularly now. As I mentioned, it was like a little piece of home . Thank you especially for the hospitality and bridging, to Rose for her frankness, and her Mother , especially for her "chutzpah"/ Wendy Robson

Excellent, excellent show!! Love the host (as do all the other women across Canada, judging by those comments!! Woo hoo!!!), not to mention the guests; they are ALL delightful and tooo funny in their own right!! I've never tried the recipes; I just watch the show for David and his "interaction" with the grandmas!! It makes my night!! Keep it up, guys!!! And, yes, by all means, take the show across Canada; you'd have enough material for twenty more years!!

I personally think this program is wonderful. It passes along recipes that might not have been kept alive, by us or by members of their families. It is a great show and I for one hope that it is continued. As a grandmother myself, I feel that this shows respect for the older generation, and of course Grandmothers. Thank you for this show, it is excellent.

This is a fabulous, original and most enjoyable show. The grandmas are absolute gems and David, as host, adds just the right touch of frivolity and respect to the older generation. Our whole family (all age groups) enjoy every single episode. PLEASE, PLEASE GIVE US MORE..... WE ARE HAVING WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS.

Loving Spoonfuls MUST be renewed! It is an excellent program and I look forward to every new episode(I even watch the reruns over and over!). There is not alot of "excellent" Canadian programming out there these days...Loving Spoonfuls is the exception in my opinion. It is an enchanting and entertaining program that must be kept on the air. It is the show that drew me to WTN, if you have my attention during this program you are more likely to keep it for other programs. Without Loving Spoonfuls I am not sure that you would get my attention at all! David Gale and his guest grandmothers are entertaining and a joy to watch, even my husband watches with me. If Loving Spoonfuls is not renewed, I would urge David Gale and his team to sell his "concept" to other networks. He has a winning combination and it would be a disappointment for WTN to not renew this program. Loving Spoonfuls is a gem, dont toss it aside! Sincerely, V. Martini

I think your show is great...I am a big believer in those old fashioned ways and cooking...low fat be darned!! I think these Grandmothers are great and David does a great job. I don't know if he is a chef or not but he doesn't intimidate these ladies like a chef might and is honest in his questioning of their methods. And don't you kid yourself if you don't agree that often a successful recipe is METHOD DEPENDANT!! He lets them do it their way and is game to keep doing it till he gets it right to their way.I think its wonderful and a great asset to the cooking shows on T.V. today. And again LOW FAT duh?? if its a butter tart or noodles what difference does eggs or oil make after all its not like it's a staple that your eating everyday...enjoy that tart and when their gone eat salad in penance. I am looking forward to the show with Rose R.'s mom and I think you should do more...like Michael the Inn chefs mom...he is gorgeous...I'd like to see his mom. Some of these good cooks are famous in their church, womens clubs, PTA and families but it's about time they get more publicity and fame. Did you ever watch the BEST OF BRIDGE...fabulous REAL women giving tried and true recipes AND THE HINTS THAT ARE TANTAMOUNT TO THEIR PREPARATION. Please, please,please keep this show going on WTN. By the way I am not related to David in anyway but I do think he is gorgeous too but it's that personality that makes the day for these women.Thanks

The first thing I want to say is I love the show for what it is about. The second is to say how sweet the host David Gale is and how nice he is to the grandmothers. I would love to know him in person, I bet he is a kind and generous person. He treats these ladies with love and respect but knows to have fun in the kitchen. Keep up the good work and I hope the program continues. I wish my mothers kitchen was laid out so she could have a tv crew in! I wish you all success in 2001. Thank You, Ericka.

I love this show. I'm 23 and watch it regularly. I enjoy hearing the stories from back in time of the grandmas. The younger generation tends to forget the important elderly society and it's history so it's nice to see grandmas appreciated in this show. Why not even some grandpa's on a show?! I also enjoy the different cultural dishes and as someone said the host is charming and funny with the grandmas. He gets them going with the teasing.

I really liked the show with Juanita but I've always wanted to know the difference between yams and sweet potatoes and when she started to answer you interrupted her and I still don't know!! She was great though.

Hello and happy New year, I have never seen the show before and tuned in to the Jan. 01, 2000 episode with Juanita Berry's Southern Fried Rabbit and Sweet Potato Pie and was blown away by the host David Gale. I have never written in comments for anything before but once I finished watching the show had to run to my computer to see if I could let producers know how touched I was with the David Gale. He was exciting, fun, respectful and touching. I felt like bringing him home to my parents. David please keep up the great work. It was very refreshing to see such an informative lighthearted show on the first day of the year. Thank you for good feeling.

One questions regarding Heidi's Fondue Recipe is there a reason the garlic was left out??? One request. Could there be pictures beside the recipes so that we can remember what it should look like. Would love to see this all in print with background on the people.

Dear David, Just read every one of the comments and with the exception of 2 nasty ones, I agree with the whole lot. Loving Spoonfuls is the number one cooking show in my books. You add a spark of humanity and fun to the show and you bring out the best in your "grannies", putting them at ease and allowing them to be themselves. You are respectful and joyful and the show reflects this. I only hope that the program will be on the air foreeeever. My mother and I set our watches for Loving Spoonfuls and skip watching the news Mondays just to see you and then we watch the repeats the rest of the week too. Hope you win the Gemini Award - you deserve it. XOXOXXO Maria

She was a short order cook during her career before retiring and it was wonderful for her to share her cooking skills with all that watched the programme. It was an experience that she will treasure forever!P.S. Episode 23/Zorka Jovancevic ..her name is spelled incorrectly on her heading page recipes.

I recenly caught this show for the 1st time while channel surfing & absolutely loved it! I saw the Polish grandmother 1st & then tonite saw the cute as can be Finnish grandmother. I could not stop laughing when her husband the acrobat did his handstand trick with David as well, his turnip chopping idea had me busting a gut. Too funny! Also, the "I dare you to eat a fish eye" at the dinner table had me howling with laughter. What a genuinely fun & entertaining show to watch! Thanks Loving Spoonfuls! :) :) :)

I caught your show for the first time this week. It was with Anja Karppinen and I stopped because I thought "those pancakes look and the accent sounds familiar". My Nana passed away years ago but she was Finnish and the accent was the same. She didn't have the fancy pan but she made those same pancakes. I came to your website just to get the recipe for the soup because it looked delicious, too. (I've been practicing the pancakes on my own). I loved Raimo doing his gymnastics - Nana was into yoga. I'm only 30 and Nana's been gone 15 years but I didn't realize how much I missed her until I watched this show and started telling my husband about her. Thanks for a great show. I will definitely watch again.

I caught Loving Spoonfuls by accident... Nina Witkowski is certainly a delightful lady and an excellent choice as a guest for your show. I think what makes Loving Spoonfuls so wonderful to watch is that it speaks to all generations. It's impossible not to think back to great times in the kitchen with family and friends, cooking and telling tales and sharing many laughs. I think the show really captures a heartwarming view of life in Canada. No one could be a better host for this show than David Gale. This is truly a winning combination.

I just finished watching the show with the Polish Grandma named Nina & felt compelled to write in. I too am of Polish descent & take great joy in preparing many of the recipes that my Baba used to make. Even after she died, my grandpa continued to make the dishes he was used to eating: borscht, homemade bread, kolbasa with boiled potatoes, perogies & pitashski (?-Spell) & just today he went into a rest home. He is 86 years old but until recently I thought that he would have been a super guest for David. I am really impressed at how David brings out the best in all the guests & especially loved the show last week with the Greek couple making lamb & baklava. I look forward to Wednesday evenings to watch this cheerful show & it always makes me smile. Regardless of the nationality of the guests, I am always reminded of my dear grandparents & how much traditional food has always grought great joy to our family. I think you have a wonderful show & I hope it continues for a very long time. Your # 1 fan - Michelle Izadkhah : )

The show is GREAT. It's great to see our Grandma's being recognized for the wealth of information and stories that they really are. True treasures. David and all the crew and the creator have such an obvious chemistry -- it makes us want to meet the Grandmas, but also brings us back for each show. Thank you for such a real and refreshingly light and informative show. I look forward to years more of Loving Spoonfuls.

If anyone kept a copy of this recipe, could they please email it to me. Thanks. A recipe archive of all recipes featured on the program would be wonderful, so that viewers can catch up if they miss a show. Thanks so much.

Why don't you shoot more episodes in Winnipeg (lots of Bubbas here, for sure!) -- maybe do a taping w/ a live audience? Anyway, best of luck w/ the Gemini -- congrats!

You make us laugh and feel very good when we watch your cooking show. My Grandma died when I was only a year old and when I watch your show I want to give the Grandma's a big hug because they are so cute. You are a nice man and someday I want to be a chef. I love to cook and bake. Thank you for having this show.

David, David, David... what can I say. Probably alot, and I will say, you and Mamma Fiore.. it was like an exciting and almost eerie experience into my own granmother's kitchen. The language, the accent, the genuinity of humour, and the cheese, I knew it all like the back of my little italian hands. Oh, and then she was about to sing and for some beautiful and recollective reason, the nina-o song popped into MY head before she sang it, the same nina-o song that my nonna Amelia would rock me to sleep to when I was a wee child. Somehow, as this particular show progressed, it slowly transformed into a vivid memory of my own personal experience, and I slowly transformed into a person with a large craving for my grandmother's italian cooking. David, oh sweet, sweet cooking David, my grandmother lives across the country, I am craving her food and am pretending to not know what to do about it so that maybe, I might be invited to dine in on one of the more vegetarian based shows as satisfaction for my craving. So, I should run, I have pasta on the brain which should be manifested for my stomach's sake. Hope to encounter you in the acting and writing world. Grazie e Buona Giornatta you silly guy. I like the show.

I like the show you make the grandmothers smile. I know that being a Personal Support Worker and seeing the elderly look sad is sad to me to see. But when I walk in to the elderly peoples homes and see a smile that makes me smile. So you must enjoy doing a cooking show with just straight grandmothers. I also think that grandmothers have a lot of interesting tales. Also the elderly have a lot of nick nacks. Believe me I have to take them all off their furnitchure to dust and clean. Well David keep up the good work and I look forward in seeing the new episodes in October. Bye for now.

I have just watched your aired program dated Sept. 2, 2000, and I can't begin to describe my level of distress at having watched a nice Jewish grandmother go to a shoichet to buy her kosher chicken to make soup, and then serve it with perogies filled with potatoes and cheese, fried in butter and topped with sour cream. THIS IS NOT AN EXAMPLE of Jewish cooking. It is not in keeping with the rules of Kashruth, keeping meat and dairy products apart, one of the cardinal rules. Please do not depict this meal as typical Jewish fare, IT IS NOT!!!! As for the matzo balls, why on earth would you add water? I have been making soft, wonderful matzo balls all my life and use only matzo meal, oil and eggs, refrigerate for 20 minutes and then form into balls with hands that have been rinsed in cold water.

I was disappointed that if you do not get the current recipes then you cannot go back and get the previous ones you have had. Could you try to keep all your recipes on file for us to go back and refer to them. Keep up the good work. It is a very refreshing show and I enjoy every minute.

I just recently started watching your show, which I caught by accident. I just absolutely loved it. It is the best cooking show I have ever seen.The recipes are all normal and not gourmet type recipes which have unobtainable ingredients. After watching I went immediately to your website to get the recipes which I had missed out on. I was very disappointed to find that recipes from all the other shows are not listed. Although I never miss a show now, I would really like to get the recipes I missed. Also printer freindly would be nice. Keep up the great work.

David is so kind and sincere with the Grandma's. It reminds me of cooking with my own Grandma when she was alive. A grandchild would never comment about a mouse trap in the flour bin just as David didn't make a big deal out of it. I have no luck with pastry but will try Edna's Speedy recipe.

The way he teases them....they relax and let their own playfulness come out. I just hope that when I become a Grandma someone will do the same for me!

I found your recent show with Pearl Geneen frightening! It was awful to watch as Pearl wiped her nose with a hand towel which both her and the host continued to use to wipe there hands as they prepared the food. And to top things off, the host had her do things which had her hands touching the floor, which was immediately followed by her continuing to touch the raw food she was preparing. I would NOT eat in HER or YOUR kitchen!

I have watched you show many times and really enjoy the interaction you have with the grandmas. There have been a couple of recipes that I would like to try but cannot find them on you site. One is by Pearl Geneen for her Emperor Chicken. The other recipe was the bannock which I found. Will you eventually be putting all the recipes on your site?

We looked at your site for the recipie but could not find it. Can you let us know when it will be posted or send that recipie please?

What a great premise for a TV show! Holy Cow - can't believe it's never been done before. After having seen your show, it just seems so OBVIOUS that this should've been done years ago. We're sure every person who watches it thinks their own Grandmother would be perfect. What a great way to get us all to make our Grandmas teach us their recipes and tell us their stories. Especially for us Gen Xer's who have lost the hearth and can often be found staring at the TV waiting for the KD to boil. (Anna & Joey)

Just have to let you know...we love your show! Reminds us how much we treasure our "experienced" family members. Don't really care what is being cooked...just love the interaction of Dave with the grandmas. Great job!

Hi Dave, saw your show for the first time with Mama Fiola, had to stop and watch, really enjoyed it and cooking with grandmothers and listening to them is great, they sure do have the best recipes. Keep up the good work. Freda

Dave: I just started watching your show and I enjoy it. They have alot of interesting recipies as well as some humor along with the cooking. I think in my opinion grandmothers, are the greatest cooks considering they have been cooking for so many years. Keep up the good work.

I hate cooking myself, and I am never good at it. But I don't have to love cooking so as to love the show, do I? ;-) It's a funny, hearty, and yummy show! It reminds me that my own gamma is a good cook too! Too bad she is an ocean away.... Keep up the excellent work!!

Thank you for such an uplifting show. It always puts us in a good mood. They don't have to cook anything. David could just interview them he is so natural with them all. We both enjoyed the visit to Edna Staebler. Hurray it is coming back for more. Can't wait.

I love the show-truly the highlight of my day! Nice to see the recipes posted so I can concentrate on the program without having to write everything down while I watch. I also like to see the expanding web page, keep it up.
Toronto, - Friday, June 23, 2000 at 07:17:52 (PDT)
Finally, someone has figured out who the best cooks in the country are. The grandmothers. I have enjoyed every show, but I paid special attention to Patsy Conway's instructions on how to make Irish Soda Bread. It is one of the things that I failed to get my late mother to teach me. Guess what I am making for tomorrow's breakfast? Thanks for a great show.

Toronto, Ontatrio Canada - Wednesday, June 14, 2000 at 07:29:02 (PDT)
I have thouroughly enjoyed each of the episodes I have seen. The host is great, and has a real affectionate and humourous rapport with the grandmothers. I especially enjoyed the episode with Loet Vos, but was disappointed not to see more of her famous collection of toys. All of the women presented seem to have led such interesting and varied lives, and I find their stories more entertaining than the cooking demonstrations! More episodes, please! But please advertise the show more so I'll be sure to know when to tune in.

It was my first time watching the show and I loved it. Your episode featuring Malati was wonderfully presented. The food looked delicious and it was highly encouraging to see both ethnic persons and their foods displayed in such an exciting way. The host and the subject matter made a terrific combination! I also love the title, it couldn't be more appropriate. Hats off to whomever came up with such a great idea!

When I can't watch the show I tape it. I wonder, How David keeps his figure ? I also, hope that WTN allows a bigger budget so the show can visit grandmothers outside the Toronto area. Keep up with the show, grandmothers leave us, the grandchildren with the best memories.

Saw the show just today. Wonderful to hear about Bertha Skye winning an international award for her soup. What a proud Canadian and Native Canadian moment. I hope it made the news at the time. I'm just back from being away and I'll going away soon. But I will take Bertha's recipes with me and try them with the man I will be marrying in a few months. Thank you for the great recipes. A very nice idea for a show too. Hope it does well and keeps on going for as long as there are Grandmothers. :)

Just wanted to congratulate you on the excellent show, and the concept presented. As a huge fan of my own Grandmothers' cooking (one Ukrainian, & one Scottish...mmm), I speak from experience that nobody cooks like Grammy(s). Keep 'em comin', and don't change a thing...and please, do keep the host; he IS both funny, and an able cook (and not a bad straight-man...I wanted to be in his shoes, in the episode with Bertha Skye:))) I look forward to a time when you look for Grammys nationally, as my Ukrainian Grandmother is still with us, and believe me, you would have many people in Edmonton interested in that show. If only I could get her to move to Peterborough, we would all eat well, tonight:)

Hi There! I love your show. I've had such fun watchin the "Grammas". It brings back wonderful memories of my own sweet Gramma Sadie who is still here but too ill to cook or get up to mischief. My Gramma taught me that more than ingredients, love was what made her recipes taste good. She was a great innovator and for many years baked bread for all her neighbours. Her German Chocolate Cake was a mortal sin. I still can't make it like she did. Much love to the Grammas on your show and I hope you'll make many more episodes.....how about a cookbook? Sandy Johnson

I had read about your show previously but only managed to see the third edition with Grandma Araxi! My husband and I were watching the show and by the end of it we were both laughing hysterically. Not only are the recipes delicious, but the grandmothers are witty, dynamic, and definitely in charge. GRANDMOTHERS RULE! Keep up the good work!
