ski9600: I like the show, but can't accept that he doesn't like eggs. If you start a show that begins with the word "diners", you should at least be able to take a bite of liquid chicken without giving me that "about to hurl" look like I have when I go to empty a kitty litter.


This X 1000!

How can you even have a food show and refuse to eat one of the most common breakfast items in the universe???

doloresonthedottedline: BrianGriffin: A local paper (City Pages) ran an article about Guy and his previous producer of DDD...the article painted Fieri as a total tool...a real ego maniac who screamed at his crew like a madman if he didn't get exactly what he wanted. I guess in the beginning, he was a cool dude, but once fame hit and the Food Network knew they had a hit, things went south in a hurry. Understand, this is all according to his ex-producer who got fired. So, who really knows? I do think his newest shows are emphasizing what a "fun lovin' character" he's supposed to be. He mugs at the camera like 10 times in 30 minutes. He used to be a "little bit" serious - now it's all yucks.

For my money, the guy who I would love to hang with is Adam Richman from Man Vs Food. He really DOES across like a regular Joe and totally not pretentious. He cracks me up.

I'd go with Alex Guarnaschelli.


Giada. We could cook a nice Italian meal together, I would pour her a glass of prosecco while she was chopping some escarole. As we toast I would hope she is drinking from the glass I dropped a roofie in. Oh yeah, Roy Hobbs will be having a frittata for breakfast.

maram500: Ultimate Food Network Party (without the douchebaggery):

-Anne Burrell making a big-ass roast
-Alton Brown making side dishes, like garlicky mashed potatoes
-Bobby Flay grilling something. Seriously, he could grill a shoe and I'd eat it, just as long as he brings his wife
-Sandra Lee on the bar because...her liver has to be dead by now, right?
-Ted Allen for the play-by-play

And I guess Ina Garten and Giada de Laurentiis can come too, but the former is there to bring the gay guys and the latter because--hey, tits!


Lynn Crawford would be my #1 pick. She looks like a riot.

badplaid: Indeed....she used the wrong roll, the wrong cut of meat and the wrong brand of peppers.

The seasonings are the key...you have Al's which is more "greek-like", Mr. Beef which is more "italian," and Portillos which is a combo of both. There are a whole bunch of others, with the best being Teddy's Red Hots in Darien. Teddy's is strong italian flavor with no cinnamon or clove and with significant garlic salt. The seasonings need to be on the roast as well as in the juice. The roll needs to be Turano, Gonnella, or Damatos with Turano being the preferred (Gonnella and Damatos are better for Italian cold deli sandwiches and their crusts fall apart when wet). Turano has the right combo of roll resiliency to juice and chewiness. Labriola makes a nice roll too, but I have never seen anyone make an Italian beef with it.

Meat needs to be rare and has to be cut thin on a slicer. Boneless round tip...cooked LOW AND SLOW...almost the way you cook prime rib...10 hours is a good start. Then chilled and sliced and simply placed in the juice to warm up. You dont want to cook in the juice as it will dry the meat.

Giardinara is not really "pickled" as it is preserved in oil. The is best made by the good beef joints (Chickies is my favorite, Al's also isnt bad), but if you want a jar, your options are the Bari, or Fontano's. There is almost nothing as perfect in the spicy food world as Bari's Hot Giardinara.

An Italian beef sandwich is nothing like a french dip.



halfof33: Deece: halfof33: That is what he says an Italian Beef sandwich is... jesus.

And I suppose you would have us believe that's something far more magical?

Fark yes! First of all ANYONE calling giardiniera "pickled peppers" deserves a damn beating.

Chicago style Italian beef sandwich is made up of thinly sliced, highly seasoned roast beef that has been warmed in jus, stuffed into a long roll, drizzled with more of the jus, and topped with either fried sweet peppers or giardiniera-a mixture of sliced hot pepp ...


Goddammit, now I'm hungry, and there aren't any places that serve this within 100 miles of me.

So fark you, you magnificent bastard.

Alex's face seems to be stuck on the "WHO FARTED?" setting at least 80% of the time. The other 20% is her making hilarious biatch-faces when a contestant back-talks or a fellow judge disagrees with her.

durbnpoisn: For the record, I'm confused about the eggs thing too. I thought that was a human diet staple since we invented birds.

I actually chuckle every time I see him cringe because someone tries to serve him something with eggs.


@Deece: I've heard that he has some hangups with gays and Jews. But let's be serious. About half his co-workers on the Food Network fall into at least one of those categories. I don't know how he could function if he had that much of a hangup.


No surprise there. My folks are Catholic. No wait...SUPER Catholic. They get "Guideposts", and Fieri's mug has been on the cover with his touching story related inside.

mekkab: insertsnarkyusername: Americans are becoming better and more knowledgeable about food but we still have a ways to go.

true but I think more often people do know about why you'd need different knives even if they don't have them... you know? The cook at home book and tv industry is booming! :)


That's a big reason why things are getting better. Some people just honestly don't care, my roommates love my cooking but have resisted learning more than the proper way to cut up an onion from me and that took 5 months to sink in. I have plenty of friends in the industry that I love to cook with but I have other friends that I hand a beer and tell them I don't need any help.

Cyno01: Cerebral Knievel: wrapple: mekkab: Cerebral Knievel: one of my favorite knives in a vintage cold steel 15" french cleaver.

ok, that's just BADASS, but I could never convince my self of it.


/I think that makes me less cool than you.
//any pics?

Help me out - I keep seeing these giant chinese steel cleavers at the oriental market, cheap. I want one real bad, just to hang on the peg board, maybe for bones to make stock. My real question is, will I cut my fingers off?

possibly... thier purpose is straight up chopping, its the same effect as the big french knife... you want one that has actual HEFT to it... nothing flimsy... it's use to power through the meat and what have you you... it's not so much a knife of finesse. the french cleaver is designed to be rocked the blunt cleavers are just meant to power chop.

yes, you use it to hack out the parts, and then flip it over and use the blunt side to crush the bones to more readily release the marrow for making stock. it can also be used to tenderize.

Its also possible the cheap ones arent cleavers at all but "chinese style chefs knives". At a glance they look like a cleaver, but generally dont have the heft to them and it would probably be a bad idea trying to hack through bone with one.


I will generally use those for slicing veges, but my head chef hates cleavers for some reason and has on more than one occasion made me put it away. So I only get to use it at home.

Cerebral Knievel: insertsnarkyusername: Deece: jaytkay: I have a compulsive urge to slap people who use "plate" as a verb when it refers to food.

Why? That's what it's called.

/been a cook for 15 years

I think as more actual restaurant terms go into the common lexicon you have people that think they are either new and made up or too fancy to actually apply to all food. I have 12 different knives in my kit, whenever I show them to someone that hasn't worked in the industry I get the response of "How could you ever use them all and why would you pay so much for them? You can get a chef knife at Sears for 30 bucks!'. Americans are becoming better and more knowledgeable about food but we still have a ways to go.

yep, I used to be a cook... got broken of the habit on my last gig, head cook at a summer camp... 50-70 kids a three times a day, by myself, with a kitchen that was little more than a residential set up... but hey... I had a three station dish well and a sprayer!

I make beer for a living now..

My cousin and my brother are both trained and apprenticed chefs with great resume's, the cousin now does the restaurant flipping thing and makes tremendously more money for it then he could ever do actually flipping the burgers.

I cook for fun at home now.. helps me relax. and my inventions have shown up in my brothers and cousins resturants.

"plating" is a perfectly acceptable term, and has been around for a very long time, its the art of presentation. its the reason why so many folks thought french food (typically just meat, sauce and potatoes) was so fancy and worth the expense.. it's not the food itself so much as the presentation of that food.. And "plating" is not just "verbing a noun"

back to the knives? one of my favorite knives in a vintage cold steel 15" french cleaver. usually wildly impractical when a 12, or 10" will do. but I can completely quarter a whole chicken in under 15 seconds with it. and when doing production line prep... stuff like that is very important. ...


That does not sound like rewarding work. I've had friends that had to cook for children and all of them got out of those jobs as soon as they could. O and that's a pretty good time on the chicken, I tend to use a boning knife and poultry shears myself (Got lucky a few months back and found a nice pair of Wusthof shears gathering dust in a display case. Talked the woman down to half price because she couldn't sell them). I'm very careful with my cuts but I am pretty sure you beat me time wise.

When I started cooking I refused to eat olives. That lasted for about a week. If you can't enjoy something you can't cook effectively with it.

well, some head chefs are egotistical assholes as well... But I'm sure I don't need to tell you that ;)

dude don't like the knives, it's his kitchen, he doesnt want them around. meh, if it was my back of the house? use whatever you want as long as it gets the job done. I'm not a fan of them either, I prefer ole Betsey for my heavy knife. but I would never deny anyone anything that made them feel comfortable and helped them do their job. it's a freaking kitchen, there are more important things to worry about.


but once again... I wouldn't use a cleaver like that unless the thickest part wasn't at least between 3/16" or a quarter inch wide and didn't have noticeable mass behind it

Hungry Girl is Dan Schneider's wife.

I'd love to have dinner with Adam Richman. He quit doing MVF because it was murderous, and he actually reasoned out that one person can't go around eating everything in sight. (Loved his episode from Charleston eating the spicy tuna hand rolls: my husband did the same challenge, and paid the price for 2 days.)

I'm sad that Alton has gone the way of the "religious right". And you couldn't pay me to sit in the same room with Ina.

I know that Alton is a devout Christian, but I've yet to hear him say anything that would paint him as a nutbag Evangelical. (ie, "Only sluts use birth control", "God hates f****ts", etc). He's worked alongside openly gay FN chefs like Cat Cora, Anne Burrell and Ted Allen, and neither mentioned Alton treating them any differently than anyone else.

But that's timing...what makes a good meal great. Just chuck three cinnabons at a person and they'll go, "Oh look at all the cinnabons. I'll have one with my burger, er burgre, and take a couple home for breakfast." But give them a cinnabon...and then, when they least expect it, two more cinnabons...and their eyes will roll back in their heads as the sheer X-TREMENESS of it. "BANG! CINNABONS FALLING FROM THE SKY! IT'S MY VERY OWN PERSONAL BROADWAY SHOW IN A BURGRE! THIS IS WHY GOD CREATED FOOD!!!"

This. This by a long shot. I couldn't care less if Alton Brown is a Buddhist with a sadomasochist streak in him--as long as he's cool and doesn't shove his beliefs in my face I'll make sauerbraten with him any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I actually didn't know he's a devout Christian (I'm thinking Baptist, but I'm not sure), but then again that's the whole point of being a Christian. I'm a reformed (read: not any more) Catholic, and I distinctly remember that you're supposed to do good works and such but not shove your Christianity in anyone else's face. GO ALTON.

He certainly has the right to do or believe whatever he wants, and no, he's not out doing terrible things in the name of religion. But just as he doesn't want anyone to look at him awkwardly when he prays over his food, I wouldn't want him returning the look when I decline. Personal preference, that's all.

I'd love to have dinner with Adam Richman. He quit doing MVF because it was murderous, and he actually reasoned out that one person can't go around eating everything in sight. (Loved his episode from Charleston eating the spicy tuna hand rolls: my husband did the same challenge, and paid the price for 2 days.)

I'm sad that Alton has gone the way of the "religious right". And you couldn't pay me to sit in the same room with Ina.

Because that's how a Christian is supposed to act. which reaffirms that Alton is awesome, and I would make sure that he has plenty of the beer I help make to stock his fridge of beerly goodness. and exchange recipes and techniques with him for using said beer in cooking.

This. This by a long shot. I couldn't care less if Alton Brown is a Buddhist with a sadomasochist streak in him--as long as he's cool and doesn't shove his beliefs in my face I'll make sauerbraten with him any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I actually didn't know he's a devout Christian (I'm thinking Baptist, but I'm not sure), but then again that's the whole point of being a Christian. I'm a reformed (read: not any more) Catholic, and I distinctly remember that you're supposed to do good works and such but not shove your Christianity in anyone else's face. GO ALTON.


Jesus sent his people to go out and spread his word, when his people asked what they should tell the people, he instructed them to tell them nothing, and let their actions show them
Jesus came for everyone, and made no distinctions based on race, creed or orientation.

I'm not a religious person, but i am a man of faith. and I call myself a christian because I like the words of Jesus on philosophical standpoint only. and as I take it, the words simply mean.. don't be an asshole.

and, once again... that's how a proper christian is supposed to act as far as I am concerned. and that is how I try to act myself.

Anne is a better cook.


She reminds me too much of Rachel Ray, but with none of the physical attractiveness.

I'll take Anne over Rachael. Rachael has a motherly figure and a voice like she's got a sore throat all the damn time. At least Anne is only overeager like a cockerspaniel.

But as a gay man, I would so take Ted Allen into the walk-in fridge...

insertsnarkyusername: fusillade762: ski9600: I like the show, but can't accept that he doesn't like eggs. If you start a show that begins with the word "diners", you should at least be able to take a bite of liquid chicken without giving me that "about to hurl" look like I have when I go to empty a kitty litter.

This X 1000!

How can you even have a food show and refuse to eat one of the most common breakfast items in the universe???

When I started cooking I refused to eat olives. That lasted for about a week. If you can't enjoy something you can't cook effectively with it.


My mother hates olives. Ironically (or not) her *name* is Olive.

It would be a lot funnier if it didn't look like it was typed by a 5-year-old. We know whoever did it had a computer, so we can assume they also have spellcheck.

Sigh.

Thats the joke.

He's a good chef and I've never heard of him treating other people with less than the utmost respect. As long as he does that I don't care if he's a Cthulhu cultist.


Ditto. He doesn't shove his religion in your face and act all holier-than-thou like some self-professed "Christians" do. As long as he doesn't go around screaming about "gays ruining civilization", I have no problem with Mr. Brown.

And when he occasionally says mildly stupid things on Twitter and gets called on it, he promptly recognizes he's wrong and apologizes, which is what a decent human being does.

pute kisses like a man: it's sad. there was a chef down here in nola getting heavily interviewed to get a food show, but they ended up denying him because he wasn't enough of a personality. this, of course, was after they said that he made the best food, hands down, of all the applicants.


It's TV, and almost everything good about TV is gone. We used to have real cookery programmes in the UK. A chef would go through the recipe, tell you the amount of each ingredients, explain techniques, tell you how to recover from a problem. We've got one programme like that left in the UK, by Delia Smith. The rest are just lifestyle/personality shows with a bit of cooking, which means they're garbage. No-one watches these programs to learn how to cook, and anyone who is interested in food now just goes and buys really food writing or uses the internet.

yeah. I'm in louisiana, so we still get some good local food programs on the local channels. people talking about what's in season, how to prepare traditional dishes, etc, when you should go stupid for satsumas or strawberries or creole tomatoes, the best time for crabs or whatever other seafood. and, the nice thing, was that they were never interested in the shortcuts but would go through the basics of french-louisiana cooking, like making a roux, a bisque, etc. the basics that are great to know, but very difficult to master. and, I don't mind some personality, talking about the history of dishes, or having the whole family/community around for some feast. but, i don't care for the gregarious and obnoxious characters. i also don't care for the words EVOO or whatever other indicator words people seem to use to pretend to bring you 'into the know'. i like it when people say, put fat in pan, put other stuff in pan. now, time to put booze in pan.

my biggest disappointment with tv cooking shows are all the shows about making quick and easy meals, taking shortcuts, or learning to use the microwave. i want to learn the proper way to make basics, like a perfect omelette, the right color your roux should be, stuff like that. I could care less about making fried fun-time poppers and other bar food crap that seems the norm.

EVOO is an ingredient, not a pretentious "indicator" or whatever that means. Extra Virgin Olive Oil. quite a mouthful.

Keigh: EVOO is an ingredient, not a pretentious "indicator" or whatever that means. Extra Virgin Olive Oil. quite a mouthful.


or, you can call it olive oil (3 syllables, vs the 4 required to say EVOO - so, brevity is not the goal here) just like normal people have called it forever. there doesn't need to be an abbreviation for everything, or a qualifier for everything.

calling your oil extra virgin is a qualifier, indicating a quality. no problem, but superfluous. but, using EVOO is an indicator that you "are one the chefs" because this is what rachel ray calls it.

finally, were you to say extra virigin olive oil instead of EVOO, you'd only be adding one syllable, and you'd have a euphonic phrase as opposed to the inharmonious and laborious EVOO.

maram500: doloresonthedottedline: BrianGriffin: A local paper (City Pages) ran an article about Guy and his previous producer of DDD...the article painted Fieri as a total tool...a real ego maniac who screamed at his crew like a madman if he didn't get exactly what he wanted. I guess in the beginning, he was a cool dude, but once fame hit and the Food Network knew they had a hit, things went south in a hurry. Understand, this is all according to his ex-producer who got fired. So, who really knows? I do think his newest shows are emphasizing what a "fun lovin' character" he's supposed to be. He mugs at the camera like 10 times in 30 minutes. He used to be a "little bit" serious - now it's all yucks.

For my money, the guy who I would love to hang with is Adam Richman from Man Vs Food. He really DOES across like a regular Joe and totally not pretentious. He cracks me up.

I'd go with Alex Guarnaschelli.

Me, I'd like to hang out with Alton Brown. He just seems so...geeky. I love it--I think he's like a thirty-years older version of myself. He's a nerdy, he's genuinely funny, and he knows his way around a bar AND a grill. Plus his fried chicken recipe was enough to give me a heart attack if I'd eaten two more pieces. Glorious.

/I tried pomegranate juice because of him
//Alton is a demigod among the sea of mediocrity at Food Network
///I'd also like to chill with Ted Allen because sexy.
////Not a typo


I love Alton brown, he teaches with science and jokes not pretentiousness and sensuousness. I hated the whole "random close ups of chopping and kneading crap" trend that was (or maybe still is) cooking show trend.

I credit him with getting my hubby interested in cooking at all thanks to his emphasis on science. We use his steak recipe all the time!

I also love David rose garden but he isn't on there anymore. I like diners for local culture.

Guy strikes me as one of those people who went to California to reinvent themselves and repeat the same edgy shiat. Bah, whatever.

He was raised in the south and pretty much everyone there goes to church. Even the most liberal people I know. It's can be more of a charitable social club than anything else.

But again, this is news to me after following him for years, its how Christians are supposed to act, humble in all things.
