Hell's Kitchen winner-Spoiler

I think the right person won

How many "winners" have kept their posts at Ramsay's restaurants? that would be interesting to know

I haven't watched all the episodes this season. they are pretty much unbearable and honestly quite boring

good for scott tho-he maintained his dignity as far as I could see

Shop Rite

Thanks for the information, I think my store is one that has many owners - I have never heard of Fairway which is too bad

it would be nice to have a decent chain store close by

Shop Rite

not sure if this is Southern or Northern New England.

What are your opinions on this store if any?

The prices can be great when they have specials but they run the same ones over and over

(london broil, pork chops, boneless chicken)

The bakery at my store is pretty bad, I prefer picking up some pizza dough and making my own bread and rolls

The only other store here is Stop and Shop and for some reason I can't stand that store-something about it idk

Master Chef 7/21 (SPOILERS)

I didn't see that outcome at all, they are going for the drama absolutely no question

I am actually rooting for Leslie at this point :) he seems like a nice guy

and it's early but I predict "Scottish" Francis (Frances?) will win

Is It Finally Cool to Like the Frugal Gourmet?

I loved his shows when I saw them on public tv

and I bought a few of his cookbooks way before the scandals

it's sad, he gave so much but took so much more :(

Best marinara sauce in a jar?

I didn't know they carried it at walmart

The smaller jar here is about $5 the larger is $8

I have picked up the large size (in quantity) for $5.99 when it goes on sale

Rao's small jar which is the same size is also $5 lately here, so Victoria isn't really a bargain after all at this point

They seem to be reinventing themselves - the labels on the new jars are a little more slick, hopefully the price doesn't rise (but it probably will)

What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? July 2014 edition!

is this the same thread where you can nominate a cookbook of the month to cook along with?
I see it isn't sorry

I had a chance to go to a book signing and talk with Luca and wasn't able to make it which sucked

may look for his book tho since there is such good feedback about it

I agree all this baking is not interesting at all (to me anyway)

The Rent err…..Groceries are Too Damn High!

thanks but I don't know if I will ever get there :(

sounds better than the inflated prices at the "farmer's market" here and they don't even claim to be organic

I haven't bother to taste the produce but a lettuce is a lettuce is a lettuce :) after all

The Rent err…..Groceries are Too Damn High!

As a happy escapee from Fairfield county I have to say the farmer's markets even up here are painfully expensive, it's style over substance (and taste) which is too bad

I would rather not pay $5 for a tomato no matter how "heirloom" it is.

I agree they are both quite different so it isn't really fair to compare them

China: A Culinary Adventure

I plan to watch this, it looks very interesting.

"Ken Hom and Ching-He Huang cook their way across China in a visually rich culinary journey against the backdrop of ancient and modern Asia. Beyond a culinary odyssey, this will be an emotional homecoming, a cultural adventure, and an anthropological and historical road trip."

if anyone else wants to take a look here is a link to episode 1 of 4:

I just realized I stereotyped Dan as well assuming he knew about wontons and dumplings by default because they are Chinese

apologies

What a bunch of silliness

Most of all the entire spring roll thing was wrong on so many levels
They obviously wanted an egg roll - not a spring roll

I am surprised at the judges, I think Graham (?) actually said they wanted something a few levels above a takeout eggroll

Look at any decent Chinese cookbook and there are no recipes for a "takeout" eggroll

Dan said he knew how to do wontons and dumplings-I am not surprised,they are well known Chinese dim sum treats

Also when I have seen and eaten a spring roll, they are no way like the rolls I saw on the show, a spring roll is a delicate fairly transparent skinned snack and they have no "bubbles"

"Dan you should be in your element (or some such comment)" stereotype much?
