Top Chef Boston - Ep. #2 - 10/22/14 (spoilers)

I want to see Aaron teamed up with Mei.....

Top Chef Boston - Ep. #2 - 10/22/14 (spoilers)

Mei did not seem like she would be pleasant to work with initially. I'm glad her teammate held his ground.

I feel a little more sympathy for Kerianne than i do Aaron. He seemed like he was just trying to bait people for the fun of it.

More diaper changing - this time in Chipotle

Well I would hope if you don't have a schedule set you'd just hire a babysitter if you REALLY have to go and eat out that badly.

Peristalsis is pretty easy to figure out.

babysat a crap load of them, literally, and have had years of experience with nutrition and young animals. All timing.

No offense, but I've found that myself, my pets, most people you can kind of regulate bowel movements by when you opt to eat/feed them. Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult in 90% of the cases.

It doesn't need to happen on a table I might want to eat from.

Hell's Kitchen-it was never good but now it is so bad

My favorite line from HK last night. "Chef Ramsay says we're lacksadaisical .... as soon as I find out what that means I'm going to make sure that I"m never that way again.

It's kind of hard for me to feel sorry for him. Glad you tried to go big for the fame and the big money. Sorry it didn't work out like you thought, but those were your choices. There's an area guy who has been making small appearances on FN shows like Grocery Games and Cutthroat Kitchen, but is always massively chasing the next thing and wants to get his own show. Always promoting promoting promoting every time he gets a call to go talk about a show appearance. I just find it off-putting now.

Couldn't the baby be changed, say, before going to a restaurant? Or after?

Hell's Kitchen-it was never good but now it is so bad

I must admit, I'm totally enamored of his Hotel Hell series when it runs. There is usually a restaurant involved, and he is a lot looser and funny as hell. (and usually gets naked or into speedos)

Theeey're baaack!

Just saw this on eater. They never stop.

Hell's Kitchen-it was never good but now it is so bad

I've watched every season, and I am watching again. I normally watch it on hulu the following day or two. I don't find the contestants in recent seasons as interesting of a mix as they were in the early seasons. Too many who are clearly just cannon fodder. Doesn't really get interesting until half way through at least when the actual real chefs are left. It's formulaic and predictable, not nearly as enjoyable as say Ramsay's Hotel Hell or Kitchen Nightmares (RIP). However, it is a consistent money maker for Fox. I doubt it is going anywhere anytime soon.

they really didn't catch my good side.

Hell's Kitchen, 2014

The first two episodes ran back to back last week, 3rd episode ran Wednesday of this past week. So 4th will be this upcoming week. And ennusians, the culinary student was tossed this past week. Guessing she was preplanned cannon fodder since she was lazy and didn't do crap.

Hell's Kitchen, 2014

Figured I might as well start a discussion here for this season of Hell's Kitchen. I've watched all the seasons, and yes it's formulaic but I'm still watching ... altho not with the interest I had in the early seasons.
We're still in the first 3 cannon-fodder rounds. Nothing exciting to report, and too early to tell who the real chefs are. This season apparently was filmed about a year ago, so all the players/winner have had to sit on the results til now. Did read an interesting interview with some of the contestants (mostly past contestants) about the show and the pressure. One thing they did mention is that the only way you could guarantee they wouldn't film you (like if you need to break down and cry) is to break out singing a copyrighted song.
Also this year has a brand new maitre de. I know he has pulled Jean Phillipe before to do things with this restaurants and used another fill in. Also heard the fill in guy was seriously ill at one point. Apparently the new guy is Monsino Monferrato, of DeSano Pizza Bakery in East Hollywood.

Masterchef US Final 3 tonight--conclusion (expect spoilers here)

I haven't watched any of the masterchef UK, watched a few Australia and a lot of NZ. I really like that they show all the masterclasses so you can actually learn something. And that the judges and guest judges go in and help people out instead of just giving them cryptic comments and sneers.

Masterchef US Final 3 tonight--conclusion (expect spoilers here)

Whoever suggested Googling Courtney with images. I hate you.

Should a chain comp an item (or offer some other compensation) if an entree is prepared wrong?

I would be satisfied with them redoing the item. Heck unless it was something really horrid (like black olives on my pizza) I probably wouldn't even complain. I had a pretty major screw up going through the drive thru once, and didn't realize it til I got home. I did complain to the website on the receipt, not wanting anything but wanting to let them know. They sent me some free coupons in the mail, don't think I ever used them.

Do fast food restaurants in your area sell bagged ice?

The Sonics in Oklahoma/Kansas have sold ice as long as I can recall. I haven't noticed any other chain restaurants advertising ice.

Masterchef US Final 3 tonight--conclusion (expect spoilers here)

Well that whole thing was a disappointment. Hated to see a dessert challenge be the last pressure test to get in the final. I can't imagine anything much more boring than watching people bake. Absolutely hated the close ups on the stripper's shoes and the "I'm a naughty June Cleaver" dresses. As much as I disliked Leslie early on, he grew on me and I would have liked to see him and Elizabeth in the final together. I just found about every word out of Courtney's mouth annoying and was very disappointed that she won. I wasn't offended at all by Elizabeth's comment about how working in an office instead of a strip club didn't make her less worthy to win. I imagine she was annoyed as hell with the producer's story line of stripper girl with a heart of gold and knew she was screwed and could cook anything she wanted and still lose.

Has anyone tried the chocolate chip cookie recipe posted on Serious Eats?

I see you've met some of my coworkers :D

When do you send back a steak for being under/over cooked?

I like my chefs indecent.

So did the aerial dancer make her own pasta? I know everything is heavily edited, but I sure don't recall seeing any pasta making stuff out on her station. Maybe someone was watching closer than i was and saw this? Otherwise don't the cooksters normally get reamed for using boxed pasta? They made quite a deal of Christian making his.....
