    Wait do people actually like Unwrapped?

    There are some episodes I like, its hit and miss.

    Like, I don't give a shit about Ben and Jerry and the "science" of putting gobs of candy and chocolate into ice cream. But seeing some of the huge intricate assembly lines that make food is neat.

    From the wiki on Sakai
    WIKIPEDIA wrote:
    He also appeared on Iron Chef America : Battle of the Masters, where he lost a trout battle to Bobby Flay (during which he created a trout-flavored ice cream) and teamed up with Mario Batali in a seafood battle.

    edit also:
    Like many chefs, Sakai did not take to losing very well. Upon his first loss, he had tried to be cheerful in explaining his loss to a younger chef who also owned his own restaurant, but his entire staff was mortified upon hearing the news. His daughter was teased in school whenever Sakai had lost - although this was a fairly rare occurrence. In an effort to learn from others, Sakai often tasted food opponents had prepared, or grabbed assistants and asked them questions after the battle was over.

    Since everything's pretty much been summed up about Alton Brown (eh, he's watchable and I learn from his shows and that one poster wants to do horrible things to him), I have to say that the Christmas episode of Iron Chef America, and it's little tease of 'Alton's gonna compete' left me pissed when it was all for show. Dammit, I honestly don't think he'd do good without preparation, but a part of me thinks at the same time, he'd be instant genius (especially, you know, if the secret ingredient was Pomegranates ... which stands out in my mind because that's the last episode of Good Eats I saw on Youtube).

    Man, I saw some special where it was Alton Brown and another chef from there, cant remember who, and he was so uncomfortable. The dude knows how to read a script, but hes no dude to go wing it.

    He mentions it in every interview I've ever seen him do. He just figured he could do a better cooking show then the ones he had seen on TV.

    And he's right, without all the little tidbits of info he throws in there I'd find his show much more boring.

    Yes cooking shows where it is some guy or girl in an apron doing nothing but cook for 40 minutes is much more boring then Good Eats.

    Look, I'm used to having lots of shiny objects to keep my attention. I don't have the willingness to watch a dude sautee some mushrooms.

    SPAM should be an ingredient on Iron Chef.


    And the challenging chef should be a Hawaiian dude.


    Because fuck those fancy-pants bitches and their goddamn Kobe beef and shit. They get spamwhiches and fucking noodles with spam.

    One of the more recent battles was skirt steak and the challenger essentially made a big old hunk of spam.

    Paula Dean infuriates me. She sounds like she's deliberately trying to sound southern, and I can't stand to listen to her speak. Especially whenever she's drawing out "Y'AAAAWL." And the way she cooks is just horrifying. No human being should ever eat that much butter in a single dish. She is just plain awful.

    Tyler Florence is awesome, but I rarely ever see his shows. Food Network Canada has much different programming as far as I'm aware, since I haven't seen most of the shit like Semi-Homemade or whatever garbage like that they've been spewing, but it seems like we're missing out on him now, too. I might be mistaken though, since I don't have as much time to watch TV anymore. We do have a bunch of local shows on the Canadian station, most of which actually are pretty good. Michael Smith's shows are quality, as long as you don't mind him speaking in that incredibly friendly maritimer voice that sounds like he's addressing children.

    There was this one other show I really liked called Food Jammers where the three guys on the show made food in all sorts of crazy ways, including mounting a turkey on a gyroscope over a fire and spinning it continuously during a backyard barbecue, a 30-foot long sausage on custom rollers they built, and ice cream prepared in a machine they built out of an old freezer by drilling into it and putting in a crank so they could agitate the ice cream while it stayed inside.

    Alton Brown is far and beyond my favourite, though. His show is just fascinating and everything he cooks looks delicious, and actually seems pretty easy explained the way he does. The only difficulty I'll ever find with his cooking is getting the right equipment for some recipes. The corniness of the show is fun, too.

    Yeah. This one episode she's taking like half a stick of butter and crumbling it over a salmon steak for her recipe, her son is doing the same but using considerably less butter. Still not a healthy amount, but an amount I'd gladly eat without much thought for my arteries. She looks at the fish, then at him, and says "Why are you using so little butter?"

    "Well Mom, I just don't use as muc-"

    "Put more on there!"

    And she just has this look of murder in her eyes, like it's an affront to all that is holy that he is using a fairly sensible amount of butter in his dish.

    She terrifies me.

    I can see that, she probably hates butter too, she just wants to sell it.
