Why do people clap in cooking shows, when the chef adds an ingredient? Every now and then I watch Emeril Live, and whenever he adds white whine, pepper, blue cheese, or any other ingredient for that matter, the audience goes nuts!! You hear the “Woo” and the “YEAH” among clapping hands. How hungry are these people?!
Here’s a typical Emril Live episode
Emeril: To give this dish a punch, weh goin to add some peppah.. BAM!!
Audience: yeah!! Wooooo!
Emeril: oh what the hell, let’s give it some textcha with some beautiful blue cheese.. oh yeah look at that
Audience” (now going nuts clapping) wooo.
This goes on for the rest of the show…
