Just noticed something odd on latest Kitchen Nightmares episode...

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 20:42:58 GMT

Duh ppl....this show was put out for airing on 3/23/12...ok Usually most of these reality tv shows film 1-2 years out, putting it early 2011 or sometime 2010. The one from 2007 could be from after they moved and new to the area & I’m sure the first few years they did pretty well in order to earn it. When they came around in 2011 & 2012, Chef Ramsey was there and gone, therefore making their menu and food much better. That’s the answer to your question. Do you guys think that they film & then automatically airs? I’m sure you guys have seen other reality shows in the past, not just this one.



Food TV show called the kitchen?

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 20:41:22 GMT

You know what is annoying to me? Shows where they try to shock with various animal parts as ingredients. Shows where the host repeats over and over the same descriptions of simple dishes that are supposed to be decadent. Shows where the host is getting larger and larger and still prepares dishes with huge calorie counts. Shows that are being aired for the tenth time. Host that is crude, rude, and making a fortune based on those characteristics while exposing the audience greasy, huge portions. Competitions that are a silly waste of time and in which the contestants yell, scream, blaspheme. The Kitchen is just entertainment, basically. I could do without Sunny, but I enjoy the format for a few seasons. Jeff is doing what they tell him to do, but he is a good cook and knows his role and his type of food. The girls are over-the-top sometimes and many times their wardrobes are inappropriate (like today for KL). But somehow I can look past all that when they are getting along. I must say that had KL come on this weekend with her pouty face and attitude, I might not have given the show another chance. As it is, loud and nasal included, I don't mind tuning in. Better than most of the alternatives on FN and better than news these days. I am boycotting sports (and really tired of them), and sitcoms etc., on network channels are horrible. That leaves the blond boy, the ranch lady, the farm lady, the fat singer, and The Kitchen. I choose The Kitchen. Then back to British tv on Hulu. Oh, and some HGTV and cooking on PBS.



Food Network Star... we used to care

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 18:53:16 GMT

why should we watch-they pick who they want--Bobby Flay had a crush on Demitri and no one like Jeff Marrow--so who cares



Milk Street TV with Christopher Kimball

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 17:48:15 GMT

I have looked forward to Milk Street and also found it quite by accident. I enjoy Chris, and the other shows really are lacking energy without him. Julia and Bridget were good as Chris' foils and have some really good recipes, but the richness of their own cooking and their enjoyment thereof shows in their onscreen personas. Not fat-shaming, just saying that I am hesitant to use their recipes if it means for me what it does for them. I don't imagine that either of Chris' previous shows will thrive without him. Hope Milk Street does well.



Bon Appetit Unreadable Font

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:06:32 GMT

I eagerly picked up the current (Sept 2017) printed issue of Bon Appetit while waiting for an appointment last week. And was disappointed to find that the last half of the magazine was close to unreadable. It used the odd font styling of inverted / upside down small "e" and the number 3 for capital E. Good looking recipe photos, I just couldn't wade thru the text. It's been a long (LONG) time since I read a paper copy -- is this font style usual for them?



Raw Water - be the first on your block

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:03:53 GMT

To me, all bottled water tastes good when chilled. At room temperature I can taste subtle differences. Mineral water like Evian tastes different. I was never a fan.



Makeshift cooking after the storms

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 07:40:22 GMT

For all of the hounds affected by the recent hurricanes, some inspiration on makeshift kitchens ...



Betty Crocker's 1957 Cookbook for Boys and Girls

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 02:45:53 GMT

I'm sure many of us remember it as fondly as I do - I LOVED that cookbook - and you could find references to it in many past CH discussions. But I certainly wasn't one of the 12 testers - good luck to you in finding them.



"The Professional Chef" iPhone/iPad App

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 08:59:03 GMT

I did and am quite perturbed. I note that Wiley now sells the ebook. Long ago there was no option for this, just the app or the text in hard cover. I think the only conscionable act would be for CIA to convert all sold iPad app licenses to ebook licenses from Wiley. Of course if they do not, then is this who (Both Wiley and CIA) want teaching future generations of our profession proper values?



Federal appeals court upholds California ban on foie gras

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 23:10:45 GMT

PETA out of your kitchen. There, fixed it for you. I'm a dem that loves all meats, fish and fowl. I have been a farmer, and have raised ducks and geese. I hope the court stops this ban; it is a slippery slope to banning all sorts other food.



Bodega Isn’t Just Bad Branding, It’s Bad Business

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:56:54 GMT

"I have four convenience stores in a two-block radius in my own SF nabe. Guess I'll need to take a peek again, as it's been awhile since I've patronized them." And here I was under the impression that San Francisco was a walking town like NYC. :) I don't think New York could even function without bodegas or delis. I shop at the ones near me all the time. Everyone I know does. The biggest problem bodegas have in NYC and I bet in SF is rent, not lack of customers. A major factor in the creepiness of BODEGA is the avoiding-all-human-contact of the kiosks that seems to be presented as a big selling point. Stores that people can just hang out in are part of what holds a neighborhood together. A sweet book that deals with that aspect of things, about a deli in an area (Boerum Hill in downtown Brooklyn) being crushed by a gentrification juggernaut: https://www.amazon.com/My-Korean-Deli-Risking-Convenience/dp/B008SLEODC



The People On America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 20:30:27 GMT

Yvonne was my absolute favorite in her one season on ATK. I was going to suggest that Chris Kimball bring her back for Milk Street but if she is living in Singapore that seems unlikely.



Cooks Country Jacks Up Online Access Price 175%

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 22:16:39 GMT

Just got a notice of $79 to renew my subscription to ATK and the other two sites. It's not worth that for a digital subscription. Doesn't include magazine or cooking show or that new chemistry class. Plus, half the site is devoted to selling stuff and it's in-your-face on every page. I've been a member since they started but I'm done.



What would you do to fix the Food Network?

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 11:23:29 GMT

I'd say that's the reason for Guy Fieri's existence/ubiquity on FN--the desire to attract the male demographic.



After Video Of Elotero Being Attacked Went Viral, Lowrider Bike Clubs Made Him A New, Custom Cart

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 04:23:47 GMT

" . . . Art, who started making street-vending trikes in 2006, got to work on the frame and box that would house Benjamín’s new cart. His effort took a considerable amount of time and space in his backyard workshop. He says he’s able to afford to take the time to weld the cart because of money he has coming in from multiple Burning Man bike orders. 'My hands are for those who need me,' he explains. . . "



Is anyone else appalled by "Worst Cooks in America?"

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 05:34:52 GMT

For a long time Food Network has been deteriorating. Between Anne and Rachel, this entire celebrity Worst Cooks is absolutely disgusting. A bunch of revolting loud mouths. They should keep their "preferences" to themselves. It is not appropriate. We cannot even allow our middle school grandkids watch these morons. Alton, (decent hosts) do not behave that way. Jett Tila, those with class would never act so crass. Last year Giada was dressed like a tramp. We hated Food Network Stars this year, even more than 2016. Last year for us.



Brandless - thoughts/experience?

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 19:48:59 GMT

Currently 1st shipment is $3.00 Found on Reddit: [–]SamBBMe 7 points 1 month ago* Just price-matched between Walmart and brandless. I tried to limit things that couldn't have quality differences, and instead focused on things that are exactly the same, like raw ingredients. Brandless vs. Walmart Organic Black Beans: $1 for 15.5 oz vs $1 for 15 oz (Trader Joes is $.89 for 10 oz). Organic Dark Red Kidney Beans: $1 for 15.5 oz vs 1.18 for 15 oz. Organic Garbanzo Beans: $1 for 15.5 oz vs $2.32 for 16 oz. Organic Coconut Oil: $3 for 10 oz vs $10 for $ 29 oz. Organic Peanut Butter: $3 for 12 oz vs $4 for 16 oz. Organic Raisins: $3 for 10 oz vs $10 for 16 oz. Organic Honey: $3 for 8 oz vs $4.38 for 12 oz. Organic Maple Syrup (Grade A): $3 for 6.7 oz vs $6 for 8.5 oz (Bonus: Maples Joes $8 for 12 oz). Organic Agave Nectar: $3 for 11.75 oz vs $10 for 46 oz. Organic Apple Cidar Vinegar: $3 for 16 vs $6 for 32 oz. Organic Whole Wheat Flour: $3 for 24 oz vs $4.27 for 24 oz. Organic Cane Sugar: $3 for 2 lbs vs $7.42 for 6 lbs. Organic Light Brown Sugar: $3 for 2 lbs vs $4.08 for 1.5 lbs. Organic Quinoa: $3 for 12 oz vs $7 for 32 oz. Organic Long Grain Brown Rice: $3 for 32 oz vs $3.28 for 32 oz. Organic Basmati Rice: $3 for 16 oz vs $3.34 for 16 oz. That looks like all that can be compared this way. I'd say it's pretty good if you want to eat organic stuff. Also, you don't have to have a membership to shop there. All the membership does is lower the free shipping minimum.



Wisconsin Sends 17,000 Pounds of Cheese to Houston

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 03:03:34 GMT

"According to WLOX, about two dozen Wisconsin-based cheese companies and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board have teamed up to send a large truck full of cheese and butter to help survivors in Houston. Altogether they’ve assembled over 17,000 pounds of cheese, including string cheese, slices, blocks, and cheese curds. They’re also sending 300 pounds of butter." I wish better days for those in and around Houston. Our thoughts are with you. Meanwhile, grilled cheese for everyone!



Idiotic Juicero has a new low-cost competitor

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 02:26:02 GMT

"Words alone cannot express how humbled we are by their commitment, ingenuity and talents; they have showed true care for each other, our amazing customers and our shared mission." Or in other words (and with apologies to the memory of Douglas Adams): "So long, and, oh, yeah, sorry 'bout those stock options..."



Trapped by Flooding Inside a Bakery, These Heroes Made Pan Dulce

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 15:23:59 GMT

They are well-meaning bakers, not "heroes."
