Summoner101: minoridiot: Guy Fieri is a chef much in the same way that Julia Child was an astronaut.

Which is kind of what is infuriating about some of the Food Network shows. They're so set on the "personalities" of the cook, or rather the point of view that they can market, rather than getting people that can actually cook.

/that said, I am looking forward to the proto-Alton show


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.

pute kisses like a man: 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.


you haven't been able to monetize that English major degree have you?

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!

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

It's an image, folks...he's selling an image and people are buying it. That's not his fault and I certainly don't blame him for it.


For those of you that actually *cook*, make his Blackened Chicken Alfredo....it's pretty damn tasty.

Oh yeah...bring back Good Eats!!

I love it. Thousands of idiot tourists waiting for hours to pay $25 for an assembly-line hamburger with extra douche, all to be thoroughly disappointed when they find out that their Guido King isn't in the back of the house flipping patties.

I've tried two or three places that were featured on that Diners show. One was out-of-this world amazing. The others were mediocre to poor.

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.

What is this proto-Alton show of which you speak?


The most recent winner of Food Network Star is nearly a personality double of Alton. He cooked food that a pretty far out from normal, but with Alton not doing Good Eats anymore, and Good Eats being one of Food Network's most successful franchises, I could see them trying to recreate success with a younger "Alton" to bring in a younger demographic.

It's also pretty easy to make the leap considering the contestant used Good Eats in his promo.

Yeah, on the Austin episode he did "Casino El Camino" and I thought it looked good til I actually ate there. Now it absolutely lived up to being a dive and its one of the better bars in austin (Really cool setup) but stay away from the food

Everyone who works there is a asshole and hates you, Doesn't matter if theres 1 person ahead of you ordering or the bar is packed, it still takes almost a hour and a half before your burger and fries are ready and the people who pretty much throw your food at you look like they should be tested for hepatitis.

I found out at a later date from some friends who have lived here longer than me, the owner and long time employees realized they didn't account for TV exposure and the headaches it might bring such as attracting biatchy familys and kids they didn't have to cater to before. As a result, they all hate your guts.

The food it self isn't' bad not worth the headache.

I don't know where this thread is going. So my opinion will be entered right about here:

I cannot even watch Drivers Drive ins and Dives anymore. It literally makes me sick while watching much of the huge, fat, greasy, fatty, sloppy, dripping, crap, that passes for food. And here is Guy raving about it.
As far as his own cooking goes... When he does his little show from his own kitchen, that includes a stage full with instruments, and a refrigerator my entire family could hide in, he cooks such simple generic stuff, but makes it look so good.

I think he'd be a great guy to grill some stuff and have a beer with. But I do not like watching his shows.

i agree, Alton's team on the Next food network star was the one only team with balance. Giada's was quirky people/personalities and Bobby's was restaurant quality chefs with no personalities. Alton's team was the only one that had that drive to present something new and the push to really teach and expand peoples' minds.
