Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cooking with Paris is a cooking show hosted by socialite Paris Hilton. It's an intentional satire; Hilton and her guests take a nonchalant approach to cooking, even doing a lot of things that might make people sick if they're actually tried at home. There are a handful of tips and tricks posted in subtitles and title cards, but the series generally isn't very practical. It does have a ton of product placement, as Hilton shops for ingredients and talks about her "favorite" brands throughout the series. Paris and her guests also drink alcohol throughout. Frequent profanity: the "f" word, "s--t," "bitch," etc.
Is It Any Good?
The joke here is that Hilton is neither very good at cooking nor interested in getting any better at cooking. Predictably, Cooking with Paris's premise gets thin very quickly. It feels designed for viewers who want some nostalgia and to laugh at Hilton's aloof vibe rather than sincerely learn about cooking. The series may have been more successful as a short video series, or as simply a pitch that never got produced -- imagining what this show might be is pretty much just as entertaining as watching it.
