(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 22

It is a sad fact of life that we spend most of it looking down on people who, if we just bothered to meet them, we'd find out were pretty nice and decent after all. I hate that it took me until well into adulthood not to judge people before I get to know them.

silvervial: 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.


Speaking of hateful derp, you might want to look in the mirror.

pute kisses like a man: 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.

Farking Canuck: Personally my only issue with his show is that the food is all heart-attack specials. I'm sure it all tastes great but they've never heard of the word moderation.



You should watch the Burgerland show - that dude is due for a coronary soon. He eats hamburgers all over the country and MY GOD! the grease dripping alone should kill him, not to mention the fried, grilled, deep fried meat and cheese. Hurk!

Teiritzamna: Also makes me think of Bourdain and his change of heart re: Emeril


Me, too. It's almost like meeting people and getting to know them instead of their image has an affect on how you feel about them.

Sometimes, that works, re: Emeril and Guy
Sometimes, that doesn't re: Sandra Wateverthefarkhernameis, the drunk woman with the Kwanza Cake

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....
//though it makes others believe you are nothing but "flash"
///I lost my way somewhere in this comment
/// / FRIDAY SLASH


So you got an issue with him changing his name back to what it was when his ancestors arrived?  GTFO that's his business.  Now hyphenated names, that bothers me.

His schtick,food may not be for everyone. As a Santa Rosan, I see Guy around town.  Yes he dresses like a 15 year old boy from Socal.  He has stepped up to the plate and generously donated time and money to our community.   This can not be said of many of the local wine moguls developers.  Good for you Guy.

Think of it as his "signature" look. It's more branding than anything else. Want people to remember you on food network? gotta have some sort of look because the other ALL blend together.

Uzzah: checked into a bizarre yet charming nautical-themed hotel

Hipsters don't say "charming." Unless they mean it ironically. She didn't.


i guess i'm not a hipster.  whenever i use the word charming, it's up there as one of the best compliments I can give a person

I wouldn't doubt it.  I have known lots of overrated yet successful people who were really good guys, but not particularly got at their jobs.

This is often how they got to be both successful and overrated.
