Leave Guy Fieri alone: Why he has nothing to do with the Food Network’s decline

i made the stuffed cabbage from A Taste Of History. if you try the recipe, i recommend you use no more than 1/2 the amount in the recipe. :-))

guests not offering to do dishes, is it rude?

the key here is "with family"....i think this creates a whole different dyanmic of "manners". "with family" you will even be expected to take out the trash.

guests not offering to do dishes, is it rude?

i've been thinking about this.....
i wonder if this has to do with the old american farm country, pot-luck, everyone chips in mentality; even if dinners are not like that anymore.

Small town restaurant + Bad experience = Would you go back?

i guess it woud depend on....do you cook at home? or are you stuck eating out because you do not cook at home (for whatever reason)?
do you eat at this establishment because this is the only game in town and you find yourself in a situation where you have no choice but to eat here?
maybe you can find one or two dishes that they do well that would overcome the bad service?
but i think surly service would be a deal breaker for me. i hope it was not the owner.

as a hostess, i have never started the dishes while my dinner guests were present. maybe cleared the table, but never started the dishes, that includes family gatherings, close friends dinner parties and dinners that a bit more formal with a mix of friends, family and newly made friends.

Ramen

run don't walk to setsuna. they have a miso
ramen on the "specials" menu right now and i nearly fainted when i took my first sip. i am not sure how much longer they will keep it on the specials menu. it's been on there for a few months now. i have begged them to keep it on the menu. we shall see.

how do you make the tamagoyaki in jiro dreams of sushi?

so every few months i do a search for: jiro tamagoyaki recipe.
look at what i found. another thought starter. the oven method is very tempting. but to be a true show-off, i would love to be able to perfect this stove-top.

hi 7amkickoff,
ok, this is very interesting. as we all saw in the movie, the apprentice is grinding away yamaimo. i did notice how stiff the egg mixture was when he poured into the pan.
so......it is interesting that the Hanpen is a mixture of yamaimo and surimi.
i will need to find some Hanpen now.
thanks for the input!

Jacques Pepin comments on "Hell's Kitchen"

hi kaleo,

Jacques Pepin comments on "Hell's Kitchen"

i just thought it was ironic that Pepin was mentioned as Dean of International Culinary Center in the pepin v. ramsay article. then, another article said the ICC was being sued by former students.

Andrew Zimmern interviews Alton Brown

loved it thank you for sharing! especially enjoyed the zimmern piece. folks like to run him down for what he does (eats) and claim he is rude. i always felt he was completely respectful when presented and eating some very strange food. zimmern in right on in his discussion of respect in the podcast with bourdain.
