(SFGate)   Hipster food writer goes to event hosted by Guy Fieri for the sole purpose of mocking him, instead has great time and discovers he's a genuinely nice guy. "He 's totally sincere and sweet, and sure, a bit obnoxious but my God, aren't we all?"   (blog.sfgate.com) divider line 77

cannotsuggestaname: garandman1a: You know San Francisco, its people like this writer that makes most of the rest of the country hate you. My god, how anyone could write such garbage and it not be an Onion article is beyond me.

I'm glad the rest of the country hates us. I didn't want to share my weather with them anyway.


This! If we got a ton of mid-western red-staters here tired of tornadoes scrubbing their houses off the face of the earth and bringing their red-state hate with them, I'd have to move, and I love it here. They can come for the safety, but leave the hateful derp behind.

Northern California wine country is like Tuscany and parts of France, terrain, climate, etc. Folks here just want to be mellow, cool, and have a good time, and want the same for everyone else. Not a lot of haters here, and that's the way I like it.

silvervial: Knobbs: Nabb1: Knobbs: She says she's a fan of truffle oil to prove she's a knowledgeable foodie, which only serves to do the opposite.

Truffle oil is precisely the kid of thing that appeals to "foodies." People who actually understand food know better.

Ah, touché!

Good point!

That's right. Every time some contestant on "Chopped" goes for the truffle oil, they loose. It's axiomatic.


I was never a big fan of truffle oil.  i like truffles.  but, retarded expensive.  when i wanted to add truffle flavor on the cheap, i found that truffle salt was more better than truffle oil.

but, for the most part, what's the point, truffle flavor is overpowering.  when it's a real truffle, that's nice, but in all the other variations, it's primarily a big distraction.

Try truffle butter. D'artagnan makes one that is a compound butter with shaved truffle in it. The truffle infuses the butter and it makes an awesome finish for some basic egg noodles with a little cream, parmesan, and chives. The best part is that the ingredients list reads :Butter (Cream, Salt), Truffles. That is it.

Hey, I like the fog, it clears out your sinuses and prevents allergies. (And yet I was a dumbass and moved to the Mission, where it never gets foggy.)

No.  No, Ms. Spotswood, we are not all obnoxious.  Some of us act like adults.  Many of us know WTF we are talking about when we write.  Very few of us genuinely like truffle oil.

Surrender your "foodie" card at the door, and never let us see you here again.  Feh.

Sasquach: downstairs: AdolfOliverPanties: I have no problem with Guy Fieri, but I understand the backlash.  His look and mannerisms scream DOUCHEBAG!!!

Glad to know he's an okay guy.

Yeah, same here.  I never assumed he was a *bad* guy, he's just very very annoying.  I love the concept of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives... but its really hard to watch with him as host.

Guy- you're at a 10, we need you at a 7.

Mr. Ferry (yes, his actual name), you don't have to scream and shout to tell us about some really great BBQ joint in Navasota Tx. Just tell the story like a rational human.....you insult your audience when you treat them like children with 10 second attention spans.

/I suppose all of that "flash" is what attracts some viewers....

I'm sorry, have you met the average cable viewer? Children with 10 second attention spans is an over-estimation.

I watch 3D all the time, but mostly for inspiration. It helped me perfect my wings and some of my Thai/Asian dishes. It's got unique stuff and some beautiful handmade dishes if you pay attention--Lobster Ravioli at Rino's, anyone?


Would love to meet Guy and have a drink or two and show him some cooking tips!

I found D'artagna Truffle butter on Amazon for $13.  I'm going to have to order one and try it out.  They have both white and black.  From what I understand, you get the black if you wish to cook with it.   I am not much of a cook, but I have a French roommate who does magical things when she goes into the kitchen.

You should check out Mark Morford. He also writes for the Comical.

Weather? It sucks in San Francisco. There's a lot to like about the City (the hobo stank, the human excrement on the sidewalks (not talking about hobos, but about the turds they leave), the great food scene)... but weather ain't one.

Actually, in my experience, 'foodies' are by nature obnoxious. It's an ego trip to either subscribe to a restaurant's skills or decry them. Seems a bit embarrassing to me to make a hobby out of analyzing any social meal you have with no credentials, and in most cases, ensuring everyone knows your food was late and your friend received the flatbread for her mussels 2 minutes after the rest of the food met the table. I feel bad for the proverbial 'foodie' because it seems like a counterintuitive way to receive food. Food, in my opinion should be visceral, which doesn't exclude fine dining, only the pretension within. The pleasure should be received through eating... Probably not by trying to impress yourself or others with your refinement.

I like holes-in-the-wall. Because I like honest, good food. You can make food your hobby... Just seems pitiful.

I agree - I told her to surrender her foodie card because she liked that crap, and no "true" "foodie" should.

I don't consider myself a foodie in that sense - I think a foodie should be someone who enjoys food, knows food, and is NOT obnoxious about food.  Frankly, my favorite food is good BBQ.  If it's good, I'll take ribs and beer over wine and cheese any day.  For flavor, Outback has a good steak.

The point being, if you like it, it's good food.
