I was intrigued yesterday to read in The New York Times Sunday Magazine an interview with Sandra Lee. I hadn’t heard of her, but I learned that she is a TV cooking celebrity and the companion of Governor Andrew Cuomo. He would some day make a creditable candidate for President, but even if I were to live long enough to see it, I wouldn’t vote for him. Sandra Lee believes that people who place too much importance on fresh ingredients are snobs. I’d hate to think of the devastating effect her presence in the White House would have on American cooking.
