dudes right, we all need to start somewhere. Those of us who are truly interested will pursue it with more diligence and further.

FTA: "...and you're to STUPID"

Is this the updated version of "your a idiot"?

I love Ruhlman, and I see his point.

But Bourdain's going to kick a Kwanzaa cake up his ass for this.
 
2010-04-15 01:57:50 PM  
I'm sticking with Bourdain on this one.

I make a lot of very good stuff using packaged food. Hamburger helper, Cheesburger Macaroni, use stew meat,(beef) brown it slow, use beef broth instead of water, Stir in a cup or two of cheddar cheese at the end, top with a dollop of sour cream and crushed fritos. Awesome.

Lets see. Anthony Bourdain, quite possibly the most pompous prick on the planet, or Sandra Lee, a hot cougarish (except that I'm almost 5 years older then her) looking babe with rather ample, natural cleavage who will feed you a quick tasty meal before hitting the sheets.

Hell, I'd eat the corn from her poop just to see where it was coming from.

Ah, crap...*runs and hides*
That'll teach me to make sweeping generalizations, but I still maintain that Hamburger Helper isn't food at all, no matter how much you dress it up.

I'll also take sides in the Bourdain debate, on Tony's side. Sure, he's pompous, but the man can cook. He's been in the trenches, and he's got technique that grandma can't match.

For someone who urges people to make BLTs from scratch (cure your own bacon, bake your own bread, grow your lettuce and tomato, make your own mayo), someone who rails at a country that buys into food companies' insistence that cooking is too hard and you're to STUPID, this is an admission. I'll repeat it: For years, I used Knorr powder to make Alfredo sauce for pasta.

It's not often a completely unknown-to-me person can make me hate them with one paragraph, but there it is.

Agreed. The man is a professional chef who believes that certain minimum standards should be adhered to in order to preserve the art of cooking. Boil in bag, boxed, and processed meals may make food quicker, but they also take away from that art.

No Reservations did a special 2 or 3 weeks ago where they talked through some very basic recipes for Boeuf Bourgingon, Roast Chicken, a basic omelet, and a few other things, and it's really remarkable how simple great food can be (or how great simple food can be).

In a fight between Anthony Bourdain and Sandra Lee, I'm going with Tony... at least Bourdain is supposed to have an adam's apple. Sandra Lee is pretty hot for a shemale though. Bourdain's still actually a chef too - and a lot wittier and entertaining.

besides which, think of it this way, if you were intent on a night of debauchery in any major city int he world who would you want as your Wingman? Short of Hemingway, or that Dos Equis guy, I have to say Anthony Bourdain. Sure he'd be obnoxious at some point in the evening and you'd likely nearly come to blows, but at the same time you know the food would be awesome and he'd have your back when that group of Mongolian shepherds at the next table decide to object to your attempts to seduce their sister (But then of course Anthony'd steal her away when you got back to the hotel-that bastard)

I actually like Knorr's Parma Rosa sauce mix. I don't use it very often but if I'm in a hurry, it's quite tasty with grilled shrimp or chicken and pasta. I feel sorry for people that grew up on microwave, fast or canned foods, and can't even cook anything simple. I am trying to impress upon my teenaged son how important it is that he know some basics in the kitchen. It didn't get his attention until he realized chicks are more impressed by a guy who cooks their dinner than takes them out to dinner.

This is the ultimate in laziness. How hard to make is a freakin' PB&J??

Tony Bourdain has called Ms. Lee the "frightening hell-spawn of Kathy Lee Gifford and Betty Crocker [who] seems on a mission to kill her fans, one meal at a time"

The cholesterol-med-taking, cult-of-pork member sounds concerned.

I like Bourdain, but shut up.

That's called Frito Pie. We used to eat it when I was a kid. Plus, Hamburger Helper already sells this recipe as one of their vareties.

Also, I've got to say that's the most complicated Sandra Lee recipe I've ever seen. It'd be cheaper and easier to just buy dessert. You could just eat the pumpkin pie AND the cheesecake and call it a day.

I managed to convince the teenage son of one of my parents friends that he should learn to cook with that exact argument- woman swoon for a guy who can put together a fancy meal from scratch and knows his way around a kitchen. My girlfriend often makes "get in the kitchen" jokes aimed at me- because she knows i never will let her in while i'm cooking unless she makes a federal case out of it

Have you ever read the comments on her recipes on the Food Network website? There is some reallly funny shiat there.

Halibut Tacos with Peach Salsa
"I must admit I would never have thought of serving fish with allspice and tace seasoning and salsa and cole slaw and peaches. But there's a good reason for that: this is disgusting."

Fiesta Fondue
"It was like there was a party in my mouth and everyone was throwing up."

Oriental Pork Wrappers
"These look like entrails from a gutted and drained goat. Great for forecasting coming events - bad for dinner."

My favorite Sandra Lee article:

You know any recipe that starts off with FIVE cans of frosting is going to be a winner

The best ones are where she tells you to buy an already made complete dessert, and then gives you instructions on how to completely fark it up into one of her "creations"

My issue is your use of the phrase "very good stuff." Sure, Hamburger Helper (or generic equivalent) is edible, and potentially even nutritious, but "very good?" To make another sweeping generalization, if it comes in a boxed kit, it's probably not "real food," either.

Exactly. I think that was the best point made, is that some things are actually EASIER to make it from scratch.

I love to cook, I remember where I started, and I changed things up and eventually learned how to make my own recipes with just an idea of a dish. But, that's my love of cooking! My husband is a kitchen moran, he only knows how to make scrambled eggs. I don't think he'd even be able to figure out how to make a powdered sauce.

The real bottom line, and this goes for all the organic crazies out there too, what the hell do you care what someone else wants to eat... If someone wants to make powder alfredo sauce, this hurts you, how? Such a silly thing to be a snob about.

Alright, so even as I've been participating in this thread, I've been horrified by all the "I'd hit it" remarks. Why, you ask? Because I've been confusing Sandra Lee with Paula Deen. A quick GIS remedied that, and yes, I'd hit it (Sandra) too, but I'd still prefer to party with Bourdain.

OK, I'll give you that. Maybe not "very good", but I find it tasty, easy to prepare, and a lot better than just following the box.
When I make spaghetti sauce I always use a jar of store bought, a few cans of differnt tomato types, basil, oregano, parsley (fresh if I have it), prefer sausage over burger, (preferable italian links cut in chunks) onion, garlic,salt, pepper and a little sugar. I think it tastes great, and is done in less than 30 minutes. And it lasts for a about three days.
