Yesterday came word that FX has purchased Texts From Bennett to adapt into a television show.
In Iron Chef America, two chefs do battle in Kitchen Stadium, having to produce a full coterie of dishes made with a secret ingredient. At the end of an hour, a panel of judges (Anthony Anderson, Karine Bakhoum and Michael Ruhlman) determines the winner. The show airs 10 p.m. Sunday, January 27, on the Food Network.
A show narrated by Anthony Bourdain and hosted by chef David Chang was eventually going to end up in Kansas City for barbecue. And in the 15th episode, appropriately titled "Smoke," of the PBS show "The Mind of a Chef," there's a loving tribute to Oklahoma Joe's.
It's a few smoked food beauty shots for your Monday afternoon. But if you're hoping for the secret ingredient to Oklahoma Joe's success, marketing director Doug Worgul isn't giving it out. He's happy to note that there's salt, pepper and paprika, but the key ingredients are simply left under the title of "other spices."
The Iron Chef America episode featuring Tio and Symon airs at 10 p.m. Sunday, January 27, and will be rebroadcast on January 28 at 1 a.m. Odds are that Tio will plan a watch party at Julian (themed dinners have coincided with her previous reality-television appearances), and we'll update this post accordingly.
Gray is about to launch a new website, eatbarbecue.com, along with a line of rubs, sauces and "ready to serve" ribs and burnt ends. Stretch was recently the weekly questionnaire subject in The Pitch. The show kicked off the fourth season last Sunday. Each episode is dedicated to a region of cooking, moving from Kansas City to Memphis to Texas.
Charles Ferruzza reviewed Poco's back in October and found the restaurant finding a balance between its classic dishes and those suggested by chef Robert Irvine, the muscled host of the extreme restaurant makeover show. The Poco's episode is slated to run at 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. Wednesday.
The episode, entitled Monster Rigs, is about customized smokers and grills. Bill Rousseau's smoker, which he has dubbed Swine Flew, will be featured. The Grain Valley mechanic has converted a Cessna airplane into a smoker — yeah, an airplane that smokes meat. There will be a watch party tonight at BT's Sports Bar & Grill in Grain Valley with $1 tacos, $3 margaritas, and sliders from Swine Flew. The party starts at 7 p.m.
Owners Trevor and Amy Goodwin are celebrating their first baking-competition appearance by selling the cupcake flavors they prepared for the show that put another area cupcake shop, Smallcakes, on the map. The Sweet Tooth, which was on a Mary Poppins-themed episode, will have jasmine-tea raspberry cupcakes with honey cream-cheese frosting, the chim chim cheree (chocolate cherry cake with whipped-cream frosting), the spoonful of sugar (apple cinnamon cake with buttercream frosting and a salted-caramel drizzle) and the supercal (banana cupcake, peanut-butter filling, chocolate-ganache dip and toasted-marshmallow frosting).
The two-year-old cupcakery is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
