"Tomorrow I'm going to burn these sticky, smoky, airborne grease-infused clothes and have a nice green salad ... with a hunk of brisket on top," Bourdain said as he neared the end of his eating rope.
Bourdain and pal Zamir Gotta were in town last December to shoot footage for his Travel Channel show. Bourdain also held court at the Midland for a night, answering questions about his experiences in and out of the kitchen. While L.C.'s, Green Dirt Farm and Woodyard BBQ will all be featured in the episode; you might just see one of Fat City's own as well. (Hint: It's someone with previous food television experience.)
To whom it may concern: I haven’t voiced a complaint since Land O’Lakes switched its butter wrapping from gold to silver foil — the same color as its margarine wrapping — thus leading to much confusion for me as a middle school chef. That was an unforgivable mistake, as I kindly explained to the call-center employee who took my call and humored me. She told me that the company appreciated my feedback and would seriously consider my suggestion. I urge you to do the same.
I’m afraid that you, the creators of food programming, are headed toward a similar mistake. While your hope is that America’s expanding waistline will lead to oversized ratings for shows reflecting what we see in the mirror, you’re neglecting the core tenet of what has made food reality TV successful in the first place: the food.
I mean, Suzilla: The Mouth That Roars and Fat Chef? These two food shows have debuted in the past month. The first, on Discovery’s Planet Green, promises an exciting journey alongside a competitive eater. Suzanne French is a new breed of big-eats contestants in that she’s a petite blonde and a woman. The second show is a Food Network program that sounds like a punch line but is a rip-off of NBC’s The Biggest Loser (one of that network’s few hits). Each week of the six-episode Fat Chef season features two chefs working alongside a trainer (one is — surprise! — former Biggest Loser trainer Brett Hoebel) in a struggle against being overweight in the very kitchens that made them obese.
For Bishop (the brains behind Lunch Blog KC), you see, has been designated a 30 Rock superfan for his commitment to bringing the fictional foods featured on the NBC sitcom to life.
In your latest tailgaiting spots I suppose I should feel gratified that you're assuming men can read by moving from pictures to actual words — a beer theoretically goes from "cold" to "super cold." Not since the cold gave chase to Jake Gyllenhaal in The Day After Tomorrow has temperature been given such a starring role.
Man v. Food understands something about America — we are a nation of eaters. As such, they've invented the Man v. Food Nation challenge — wherein the show will come to one city to film an aspiring (or current) competitive eater take down a monster plate of food.
Randy Santel is Kansas City's hopeful, one of five finalists left in the challenge — and he's got his eyes set on a 55-ounce burger called The Super Flea at the Westport Flea Market. The winner will be determined by online voting that ends on Thursday, August 11, with Man v. Food filming an episode in the winner's hometown.Â
The funny thing about 24-year-old local pastry chef Carter Holton winning the Star Wars Cake Challenge on the Food Network Challenge series last week is that the competition required Holton and his three competitors -- all bakery owners and professional cake designers -- to create a cake based on a character from the Star Wars film series. And Holton had never seen one of the films.
"I had to learn a ton about Star Wars after we got the assignment," Holton says. "But until then, I had never seen any of the movies. I've since seen a couple of them. They're OK. You know, it's science fiction."
Last Sunday, Holton invited 75 of his nearest and dearest friends into his new loft in the Stuart Hall building to watch the airing of the Food Network episode -- filmed last March -- in which he won the grand prize: $10,000 and the opportunity to re-create his cake -- featuring C-3P0 -- at Walt Disney World last May.
Chef Michael Smith isn't the only Kansas City chef getting a bit of tube time on Friday -- the Cooking Channel's host Jeffrey Saad is heading over to Julian tonight for the dinner service.
The United States of America crew will be at Extra Virgin during the lunch hour -- 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. -- and then it's off to chef Celina Tio's kitchen to get some shots of her prepping and making the Brookside restaurant's signature dishes.
If you were kicking yourself for missing The Food Network cameras at Extra Virgin earlier this month, you've got a shot at redemption tomorrow. The lights and action return to chef Michael Smith's restaurant, which will be featured on the Cooking Channel show, "The United Tastes of America," with host Jeffrey Saad.
"Things are very busy for sure," Smith says. "But we are having a lot of fun and encouraging our patrons to have some, also."
