I watched a marathon of this when I was home sick a few months ago.. It is awesome...It has been going on long before cameras were around and it the production has a kept that very vouryestric feeling so you get a pure sense of love of food and cooking....for the glory alone

mom had a second shower... but i think it was against her will...my stepdad had never been married.. and when mom left bio dad she just took me and my sister and drove off she never got any of our "stuff" back so we were still living with plastic cups and goodwill dishes...one of her friends said they needed to start their marriage out with "couple" things. ..They had a couples shower...they didnt register or anything... guys brought things like tools... and women brought house things...

Host/Hostess gift

Bitters..they are so underrated and really can wrap up a meal meal nicely. If someone is a total foodie some nice bitters and a some recipe for "afters" would be cool.

Shark Tank promo

I think plated would be a great thing to order for someone who just lost their spouse. My Grandfather lost all interest in food and eating when my Mermer died and this would have helped get him back into the groove of cooking without having to be overwhelmed with the shopping and stuff..

Reservation Confirmation.

my dad called the other day simply to the hostess that our party of five had become a party of 4.... and she was so amazed and thankful ... having worked in a restaurant he knew a table of five was really a six to eight top and would make a difference in any wait lists...she said rarely do they have people call to cancel thier reservations much less have the manners to call and change their party number often showing up with three for a party of eight.

"so cannot offer a personal observation about either one."

Qui Reservation system sucks

sometimes people have to wait if they have a reservation ...the people before wont turn the table.. they linger...especially the later in the night...

Qui Reservation system sucks

Qui's prices are not really out of line... you speak of the "inside scoop" as if a few people have been able to get into the door of the place.... It is Verrrrryyyy easy to in... with walk ins being accepted and reservations being taken on Mondays if you have need for a specail occasion they have closed the entire restraunt to make it happen... I have never had problem getting a table. And I rather spend my money on crafted food then the same amount on product that comes from a box in the freezer.

M3: confused waitress or weird definition?

devils advocate.. I have heard the terms" beef steak", "Tuna Steak" if English was her second language I can see where the confussion for her could have come from. To assume ignorance or the worst of her may be unfair. But then I have been accused of being a bit too Pollyanna.

now the dirty fork is another issue entirely

Himalayan pink salt - this label can't be right, can it?

a 1/4 teaspoon is 1.25 grams ... but this conversion really is meaningless unless you want to go by weight anyway.... BUT asss I dont want want to do my German homework.... In pure solid form it would be 1250 mg converted to grams but that is not taking into consideration the the desnisty and monulecurity ...and it is physicalllllllly imposible once the liquid hits 1250mg it is solid and you cant get more solid than solid.... sooooo basically you have lable that people are bullshitting on.

Do you cook when you're down?

lol-- yes yes of course it is singularly the hotest new trend...focusing on one flavour and colour througout the entire meal.... I meant molecular of course ...but my phone is smarter than me...

When Will Chefs Be Honest About Smoking Weed?

there was a discussion once of "herbal" cooking with some chefs I worked with if it became legalized where I lived and how it would be regulated. Much like getting a liquour certification we imagin. But more than that we talked about the level expectation of diners and the needs of people that feel that their food enjoyment has to be chemically enhanced in someway. Would it lead to chefs sprinkling diet powders on food too? Obviously pot is not the GMOs people are screaming about BUT is it a "natural" food additive like basil? Is it unami? It was a very interesting discusion.
