Korilla Food Truck kicked off for cheating – I know this is a week late, but here it is. Spoilers! Anyways, I’d really love to know what more there is to the story. Seriously.
First of all, I want to start out by saying I love you Food Network. Food network has provided many hours of entertainment and learning for me. I love it. My cooking has really improved directly because of them.
On that note, I am going to use a bulleted list of things that really annoy or make me want to fix it. My OCDness takes over and I can’t really help it!
I’m sure there will be a number of people complaining to me about all this but I really don’t think the 5 people who read this blog will really care. :D
- When I watch Ina Garten on Barefoot Contessa, I love it. I love her, the show, everything about it. Except for when she puts her utensils on her counter. I realize the countertop is clean and very beautiful. Why ruin the beautiful-ness by putting dirty utensils you just mixed something with on it? It’s really small, and but honestly can’t you put it on say a paper plate or paper towel or better yet, the cutting board? Just wondering.
- Giada De Laurentiis. Oh my, I love your show. I love your food. But I’m wondering if you could tone down on the cleavage. It almost seems like it’s on purpose. Now, I’m not complaining about it, I think you’re very beautiful, but I’m not watching your show for your cleavage. LOL I’m watching to see what kind of awesome recipes you got. Also, the camera seems to linger around it sometimes. I’m just saying.
- The Neelys. First of all, let me say this. I love your recipes, even if they’re not exactly healthy. That’s not what your show is about. I understand. Your food is awesome and gives me great ideas. But seriously? I know you guys love each other. I get it. But do you have to flaunt your happiness in front of everyone else? There’s no need to get cheesy. There’s a bedroom for that. It might be OK in your kitchen, but honestly, I’m trying to watch a COOKING show, not Loveline. You might also wanna cut down on the number of times you say “y’all”.
I’m sure I have more, but I can’t think of them right at this time. Those are the ones that are clearly on the top of my list. What do you guys think? Any pet peeves of your own?
Really? I think Food Network has really outdone themselves with this show. The premise is rather simple, the chefs have to choose the worst cooks out of 24 initial cooks. And these people are bad. They’ve pretty much been singled out as people who could boil water without burning something.
It’s rather like watching a train wreck. These poor people can’t cook worth a damn. But that’s ok. If you can serve say a can of tomato soup, that’s not so bad isn’t it? Well, that’s what one of the contestant did. Wow, that’s nothing, I’m pretty sure almost anyone can successfully make a Campbell tomato soup dish.
The final end game of the show is of course for the last two standing cooks to make a dish for a panel of food critics, who supposedly have no idea they’re really cooking for them, and instead, Ann Burrell and Beau MacMillan, the Chefs of the red and blue team, are cooking for them. Of course, the reputation of the chefs are in peril.
This just seems to be a competition of who is a better instructor, and how fast they can teach. The cooks are just a bonus (if you can see it that way) to the show. There’s a lot of tears, a lot of under/overcooked meals.
How does this show seem to you? Is it as much a train wreck as I see it? I just think some of the cooks have got to be exaggerating their skills (or non skills) in cooking. But damn, I just can’t help but watch it.
I’m sure this is the question that’s going on in a lot of people’s heads that are watching the Food Network show, “The Next Iron Chef“. What started out as 10 has now been trimmed down to 2 finalists. It’s been a grueling and long journey for all of them, and for those who have finally come to Kitchen Stadium to battle it out, and cook the best meal they’ve ever cooked, I applaud you. Well…not really.
Here’s where I say there are spoilers and if you are watching the show on DVR or whatever, this is the point to turn back. The rest of this article after the bump.
Ok, when we saw this new show, The Food Detectives on Food Network, I thought it could be pretty cool. A show that tries to bust the myths of food, such as getting drowsy because of turkey, and whether the “5-second rule” truly applies, is definitely up my alley.
But I didn’t believe the myth about not being able to eat 6 saltine crackers in less than a minute. That episode was enlightening, but I still didn’t believe it. I realize the tests and trials were pretty conclusive, but I had to test this one out myself.
So I sat down with 6 saltine crackers and started the clock. Amazingly enough, when you’re eating them as fast as you can, it’s tough to eat saltines! I was able to get 6 crackers into my mouth, and I actually did eat 3 of them before 1 minute was up, but I was unable to swallow all the crackers in 1 minute. I think personally that the dryness of the crackers has everything to do with it.
I’m convinced, however, that it could still be possible with practice. It can be done.
Ok, so we’ve been watching the new season of Dinner Impossible on Food TV and well, I think Chef Symon is good and all and I know he’s an Iron Chef, but perhaps he should stay on that show. I know that there was that scandal going on with Chef Robert Irvine exxagerating a little bit on his resume, but honestly, I really loved that man on that show. I think Robert Irvine is quite the talent. Chef Symon is cool and all but I just think the original format of the show is just not right. Of course, this could be because Chef Irvine was first and the “original” host. What do you think?
