The food channel

Like food? Watch the food channel?

Who's your favorites?


She can cook dirt and I'd eat it...just invite me over, pretty-please. Giada De Laurentiis

This guy...Takeshi Kaga cracks me up. That opening scene of him biting of that large
yellow pepper and chewing only once is priceless.



I just like watching Rachael Ray walk around the kitchen. Don't really pay attention to
what she is cooking but she makes it sound yummy.

As my brother is a chef we watch food network alot. I'm an avid viewer of Iron Chef and love the funny yet dramatic way Chairmen Kaga dresses. Rachael Ray while pretty and fun to watch isn't IMHO very talented. All in all food network has good stuff but since they don't have Anthony Bourdain on anymore I tend to watch less. If you don't know who he is read some of his work and watch him on the Travel Channel Tune in for Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

His shirts. I don't want to know what he pays for those shirts but I bet they're like a grand each. He's so flashy.

Alton Brown is my guy. Yeah, I know, he can be a little wierd, well maybe a lot weird. I mean the man has smoked a ham and roasted a whole chicken in flower pots. I love the chemistry behind the cooking and the way he explains why you add this or that to a recipe and not just "Add this strange little spice that cost a fortune and that you'll never in your life use again".

Emerill is pretty good too, although, don't always believe everything he says about cajun cooking. And if you ever want to eat in one of his restaurants, especially down in New Orleans, bring a bucket of money, you'll need it.

Alton is indeed awesome. I too enjoy the way he breaks down food to its root. As for Giada, I don't like the food she makes. She also seems a bit of a snob but maybe thats just me.

do you guys watch the new iron chef america too?
remakes are never quite as satisfying as you want them to be. at least they show the judge's scores, unlike the older version.

i hear the chairman's nephew is the new chairman. (if that made sense)

how old is the old chairman by now?

Speaking of Giada, did anyone else see the episode that she had her old Aunt helping her cook some old family favs. I though they were going to get into a food fight.

It was like, "On my show I love to do the tomatoes behind my back." And Auntie would go "No dear, you must cut them above your head like this." Back and forth the whole show.

It was hysterical.

Not sure about the nephew part, but the guy is an actor that's been around for awile, although with a lot more hair.

He played The Crow on the TV series and was also in the movie Brotherhood of the Wolf as well as Cradle to the Grave.

If we are talking about the same guy...if not nevermind.

yeah i think it is his nephew cause before he reveals the secret ingredient, he says "in the words of my great uncle, a la cuisine" or something. i didn't recognize him from cradle to the grave, but..whatever

I watch the Iron Chef sometimes, the original and the American version. I like to cook and although I don't really do anything fancy the show provides some inspiration for at least trying something new.

I like the competition aspect though my favorite chef (Chen Kenichi) wasn't enjoying it for a few shows when he lost to FEMALE chefs. He did win against a female chef eventually (they were picking on him). Who would think you could root for a chef to win?
