Masterchef returns with new judge

same with the egg challenge and beef being cooked perfectly very visual

ISO bento-style lunch containers for kids

I order my stuff from casabento.com and have had good luck.
here in the states I have had luck at WHolefoods and REI sports--I dont know if you have those.... then of course the big Asian grocery store

Masterchef returns with new judge

ya it was weird...No Luca No Courtney No Whitney... Jennifer should be in LA .. my friend in Dallas wasnt called...

Masterchef returns with new judge

Seriously. at least Amandas cake tasted good.

ANdif it was the 100th birthday.... shouldnt we have at least seen last years winner there? I mean Leslie lives up the road... but we should have seen some more past contestants...

"I personally don't understand this desire for fame. Fortune? Sure. Who couldn't use more money?"

I know my view has changed on that one in the last few years after riding the audition rollercoster. My mom tried to warn me ... but it is one of those thing I guess you just have to learn for yourself

Masterchef returns with new judge

I know on NFNS Lisa Garza does not eat pork... a few times she was asked to taste things with pork in them and would pretend to eat them and spit them out ....I dont know if she was asked to do this or if it was her own compromise..
if Helta is a vegetarian for religious reasons then those guide lines should have forbid her to kill the crab as well...remember on Top Chef Masters when Chef Survi cited a Hindu "no butchering animals" clause, and didnt kill any bugs for the edible bug challenge?

Masterchef returns with new judge

I have to agree... or I thought she was kept to avoid any appearance of intolerance or microagression... you didnt hear the woman in the hijab complain about bacon being in the mystery box.

Masterchef returns with new judge

why didnt she make a vegetarian version? the whole thing screams of that joke A vegan a Triathlete and a breast feeder walk into a restaurant how do you know? You here them declare it at the door....

Her food always looked like church pot luck food to me... and I thought the whole "everyone calls me Momma- SIta" Schtick was annoying

I was also a bit annoyed Michelle stood there taking all the credit for the fabulous idea of the octopus when it was Rue's idea.

Freddies gone now too?

Biggest, most expensive bullshit at a fine dining restaurant.

I asked my dad a few minutes ago...being six I thought I may not have a clear memory .. the only thing I got wrong is that he didnt put it on the bread plate because" that would be tacky" he had asked for a small plate for me.

no he wasnt, My mom said he should have complained. But he said that would have looked low class. they argued about for about ten minutes. Mom said she could have understood if we hadnt ordered me a full entree but they had order me an adult plate

Current restaurant pet peeve

not getting a new fork with each course
using confit instead stewed to describe something which is not confited
Caesar salad which is not really anything close to Caesar dressing and often made with iceberg
Too cold in the dining room
pushing the wine list no thank you should be enough

FDA Finally Bans Trans Fats

I thought this was an Onion artical

Biggest, most expensive bullshit at a fine dining restaurant.

I rarely see the actual bill.. but I can tell you once we at at very well known restaurant when I was about six and I wanted to try some of my daddy's fish dish so he placed a small taste on my bread plate.

I tasted it and like it daddy asked if I wanted full serving I told him no thank you I was happy with my petite filet

when we got in the car later he told my mom "you know the charged me 10.00 for a plate share?"

They are in my school cafeteria...for some reason the smell reminds me of playdough but I will admit if we have to eat on the interstate and have to have "fastfood" I would do Subway or Arbys over any of the others

The Chew Cookbooks

The only thing that may happen is sometimes they will pull recipes down after a few months. I had that happen with a couple of shows. Top Chef ,Extra Virgin,My little Paris Kitchen... Food Network does it a lot

"southern African" not to be confused with " Southern Italy"
OR the 'Italian Southern' I asked my grandfather who is from South Africa if it is c called Southern Africa -South Africa is an established name for a particular place. Southern Africa you could really mean any reasonable area containing the southern end of the African continent. SO it isnt like she is cooking Memphis BBQ it more ethnically diverse and would encompass several tribes

or he will "learn" from his mistakes and be humbled by the man in the redsweater during star salvation and come back perfect..
or refuse to come back thinking the whole network is beneath him and he will do better without them
