Hilarious: Pete Wells on Guy Fieri, NYT

Maybe he needs to have his son go and manage the restaurant for him. I don't dislike "DDD" but I tired of watching it because they have so many shows. However I do enjoy his "Guy's Big Bite" which has been on since 2006 were he frequently has his sons and nephew help prep.

Time Machine Chefs

To be honest I was surprised when I saw this show on the schedule since I hadn’t heard anything about it. So wow, Art and Chris together again. It looks like rumors are going to start. Then I’m trying to remember where I heard the voice of the Host before, oh yeah “Private Chefs of Beverly Hills” she was much more enjoyable there. I imagine the Chopped people are kicking themselves as they missed this concept.

Any local sweet corn yet?

Early Varieties of Sweet Corn
By Irum Sarfaraz, eHow Contributor
Early Varieties of Sweet Corn thumbnail
A number of sweet corn varieties have an early maturation time.

Sweet corn is a popular summer vegetable, and the new and improved hybrids are sweeter with a better storage capacity than earlier varieties. Besides color and taste, sweet corn is also broadly classified according to the maturation time as early, mid or late season. When choosing cultivars, select those that are well resistant to disease and insects. Corn seed requires a minimal soil temperature of 50 degrees Fahrenheit for germination. There are a number of early varieties of sweet corn, some of which are ready to harvest in 70 to 77 days. Does this

Delaware County, PA Restaurants

We have gone there a few time over the years and service wasn't to bad. We especially like the rooftop seating area, but this time it was so poor and by the way he never did return with the soda.. We had taken my father in law (99 Years old) out and I told my wife that we would have had better service at the Middletown Diner.

We were disappointed with the Concordville Inn on Father's Day. Slow service with the salad and soup, soup was out and finished before salads were delivered. Also the FoH manager came around and asked if we needed any thing and when my daughter said a soda he went and sat down at a booth with a patron and talked for about 15 minutes. This was while we were waiting for the waitress to come and ask if we wanted anything else or the check and then to deliver the check.

When I was a kid about 50 years ago there was a saying "Knee high by the fourth of July", regarding corn stalks. Now I know this was a warm winter but did they really start early with planting this year?

Interesting how this show seems to be completely overlooked by the Chowhound community. Not much drama, I guess

"I, for one, on this "bus tour" episode was annoyed with Giada's "flamboyant" correct pronunciation of Italian words. I personally find it distracting and somewhat pretentious. I know there are those who will disagree, but I just don't like it."

So she is not suppose to allow her natural accent and procreational come thru? She should Americanize it? Hmmm.

The times we have eaten at Stephens which has been awhile now we found the food to be good but a little pricier than other places we go to.
