This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Quote from: Werekoala
Bobby Flay is the one who dishonored Kitchen Stadium (the real one, not that American-produced travesty) by jumping up on his cutting board at the end of his first match with Morimoto.

He has no honor.


The original version is much better than the American version.  The fact that they have the guy who played in the TV version of "The Crow" as Chairman makes it a little too bizarre for me.  Although I do enjoy Alton Brown's commentary in the American version.

This thread makes me hungry every freakin time I look at it.

I'm being facetious of course, but that Flay guy does not impress me. His on-air persona at least is kind of superior and unapproachable, however skilled and talented a cook he may be.

Alton Brown, on the other hand, is charismatic, likeable, knowledgeable and self-effacing. His show isn't just entertaining, it's educational.

George Duran? Duran's awesome, too. Good sense of humor, sense of culinary adventure.

Sandra Lee? Tits on a stick. Sorry, but she's so very dull and fake to me, I can't watch her. Good recipes, but that's it.
I think people rather overstate Flay's attitude.  He's really not a bad guy at all, he's just got a touch of that New York attitude in him.  Throwdown, his new show, is a pretty good example of what he's like I think.  He challenges all these random people to these cookoffs, and he does talk a little friendly smack, but he's also a very gracious loser, and says himself on countless occasions that his real motivation for the show is just giving the folks he challenges a chance to show off their skills.

And George Duran is good fun too.  Apparently they've got him replacing the boring guy who used to host Secret Life Of on Food Network, so I might actually watch that show now.

Mario Batali's a really cool guy too, it's just that you really only see him on Iron Chef anymore, unless you get up at 10am on Monday mornings to watch Molto Mario.  Which is a shame, because his show is pretty good, in that you learn a lot about Italy and Italian cuisine, plus he actually gets some surprising guests on the show.  One time he had the entire Gyllenhaal family on there, and another time I think he had half the supporting cast of the Sopranos.

I can still no like-a the Flay, right? Right? Right?

He's no Giada DiLaurentiis, I'll say that. Her, I can't even listen to.

And, no, I don't want to look at her, either.

I will admit that, while I think he's a lot nicer guy than folks are willing to give him credit for, he's not a terribly entertaining TV personality either.  Throwdown's a fun show, but his regular stuff is just kinda dull to watch, and his recipes do get a wee bit on the monotonous side.

Giada however is my dream girl and I'll not have you speaking ill of her.  ;)
