Ha! Love this!

I'd try that.

19 sticks of butter.

That is all.

Flay would never put poblano peppers on apple pie. He'd put mango salsa.
 
2011-12-04 05:23:35 PM  
Thing is, I could see Flay trying something with poblanos on an apple pie... and it would work.

If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.

These days the Food Network is to food as MTV is to music.

No, its still about food, but all the actual COOKING shows are on the Cooking Channel now. MTV has little, if anything, to do with music anymore.

The Peabody Hotel in Orlando makes peach cobbler - with jalapenos in it.

Not a lot, but just enough to warm up the flavor. It's wonderful...

Oh you're cute. The Food Channel hasn't been about "food" for at least 5 years. All it cares about is drama. Ironically the Travel Channel does more for food in one night than the Food Channel does all year.

You mean the Food Network is actually more inclined to chase ratings and revenue rather than focus entirely on food? Shocking.

Coincidentally, about the time that Alton Brown laid off Good Eats to do Iron Chef.

I totally agree, but the problem facing the Food Network is that almost everything under the sun has been grilled, seared, chopped, glazed sauteed, broiled mashed, and fried on that network. You have everything from useful information like Good Eats to the creepy suburban soul sucking stepford wife (Sandra Lee) and everything else in between. I honestly just do not know what else you can teach on TV without making it a lot more advanced, which just would not work.

I am curious as to how many people would watch something more advanced .. like how celebrity chefs used to be (i.e Jacques Pépin and Julia Child had a degree of difficulty not on TV today, IMO.)

Poblano peppers would be delicious with apple pie. Have none of you ever tried it with chile in there?

Simply put: they wont. As much as I love food and the restaurant biz, I simply could not sit through a 4 hour long show on sauce making. Also, the Food Network is pretty neutral on its stance of ingredients...no one gets to preachy about organic, sustainably and so on. Even though shows about those topics would be interesting at least to me, they run the risk of sounding like a tree hugging/let's save the whales network to the masses.

That sounds... potentially good.

They'd also sound like something that would piss off advertisers.

Putting anything on apple pie and continuing to call it apple pie is akin to putting rice in beer and still calling it beer. (I am looking at you Budweiser.) Feel free to modify the name as the Frenchies did when they put ice cream on it (apple pie ala mode), and call it apple-poblano pie if you like, or apple pie con poblanos. And I swear to freaking GOD if you put cheese on a slice of the gustatorial heaven which is home-made apple pie I will kill you myself with my bare hands, you perverted bastard.

Mmmm. Nothing like some 7-year-old cheddar on a slice of apple pie.

The one is a palate cleanser and flavor enhancer to the other, moron,

Are you proposing that first I eat my steak, then I drink my Bordeaux?

I have said it before but Food Network Humor is a painfully unfunny site.

Its been shiat since they turned it into 24 hour game shows, with the odd "fat guy eats greasy food and tells us how awesome it is, bro" show.

They should just change the name to "The Chanel Where The Mediocre Sous Chef From Dennys Gets Voted Off The Island Chanel."

Don't forget the chunk of old cheddar cheese too you gastronomic wasteland.

I like Guy Fieri on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. It's a refreshing alternative to the chef competition shows (Cupcake Wars? For reals?). Everything else I gave a pass to. I will say that woman who pwned Flay on the Thanksgiving competition was excellent. You don't bring your piddly Tex-Mex roots to a fight where the other chef wrote a farking BOOK on cooking turkeys.

I would, and I can name at least ten people I know who would watch something like that with me.

My only problem with Food Network is its sorely lacking in twoody.
