Top Chef Seattle - Ep. #11 - 01/16/13 (Spoilers)

This is a vintage year Top Chef. I didn't like this week's result but it beat the hell out of last year's perpetual catfight.

Loved the dignity that Kristen showed. She will be my bet on last chance. Even if she doesn't win there she'll do well in life.

Are You Snacking on Anything Right Now?

Just kinda rediscovered braunschweiger. Spread on a cracker or better yet some rye bread with a little onion and mustard and maybe a drop of tabasco.

It was a good episode to watch, especially after last years bitchfest.

I think neurotic is exactly the right word. As you or I taste something and don't like it we get pissed off cuz we feel like we're missing out on something. I should go on a bit more I suppose, but I'm just trying to maintain a post. Super-taster vs. Neurotic=Neurotic. Until your friend goes on Top Chef and does a blind taste to verify the sex of a pig, then I'll believe it.

That's interesting. As a kid (age 5) I went through a windshield in a traffic accident and had to have minor plastic surgery to my face and indeed to my tongue. I'm quite a handsome fellow now as I've had 45 years for the scars to heal, but good to know. Thank you. I'll do a little research on "parotid gland ".

What discontinued products do you miss?

Big John's Pork and Beans. Two cans taped together...had a lumberjack on the label. Easy latchkey kid dinner over toast.

Default Beans?

As a one who grew up in a Southern kitchen it's baby limas stewed for about three hours with a couple of big diced onions and a smoked ham hock as a soup, topped with chives or green onion and a few drops of vinegar.

Other times it's black-eyed-peas done the same way but with lots of red pepper flakes.

Both of those touch my heart.

We can't be the only ones to feel this, but I'm at a loss on what to search for. Foodgasm just returned me to this post.

Welcome to the club I guess. Sounds like you get it to the extreme.

But Muncie Still Sucks? Readers Respond to "10 Worst College Towns"

Yea, I'm pretty sure Muncie still sucks. But there was a great BQ place called QL's that did turn me on to proper KC style BQ. I hop its still there.

You don't get a similar but more positive reaction with foods that you like?

Like Aabacus I doubt I'm a "super-taster" and I'm not so sure I even buy into the concept. Interesting that I'm also in the "cilantro tastes like soap" category, although I'm learning to taste the brightness in small doses. I'm not a "picky", but a very adventurous eater.

The thing I find curious is that I never experienced this when I was younger (<40). Now that I'm pushing 50, I'm getting it quite a bit more often, and with more and different flavors.

Kinda hard to describe but its a feeling of "intensity" when you put that first bite of food in your mouth. I first noticed it when I'd pop that first table grape in my mouth and always attributed it to the sugar as it was usually something sweet. But now I'm getting that same reaction from cheeses. Its not an unpleasant feeling at all...it just kinda makes me almost freeze up for a second and almost make a "face" if you will. I don't recall experiencing it at all when I was young.

The Big Cheese, new on The Cooking Channel

To me the host distracted from the content by his clowning. His hamming got old for me real quick. And you know cheese is usually pretty smelly stuff; one can generally get a good idea of the aroma without sticking a nose directly into the product...which he seemed to constantly do.

Call me an old fart HillJ...cuz I am, but yes, his court jester approach to the show is not my cup of tea. I might give it one more try, but I did have the chance to see the second episode last night and decided to pass.

The Big Cheese, new on The Cooking Channel

Sadly another over the top goofball host sticking his nose and fingers into everything and generally acting like...some who would never appeal to my older demographic

Have you ever OD'd on a food? And if you did, did you ever recover?

Obviously they wouldn't sell much if they put "Instant Projectile Puke" on the bottle...+2

Marcel's Quantum Kitchen

Yea me too.

The thing is I really wish him the best. I've seen too many very talented folk all ate up by the age of thirty not because they weren't brilliant at what they do but because they never learned how to deal with people.

Marcel's Quantum Kitchen

He seemingly has all the attributes for reality TV these days…namely a bad haircut and no social skills.
