    First Lady Michelle Obama got a taste of Ina Garten’s cooking when they filmed an episode of Barefoot Contessa at the White House earlier this month. In a clip released from the upcoming one-hour special episode, Barefoot in Washington, Garten spoke with Obama about what she and President Barack Obama will do once they leave the White House. “I know it’s going to be wonderful for you. You’re going to do something extraordinary going forward,” Garten said to Obama. Obama, who appears to share a universal dream to attend one of Garten’s dinner parties, replied, “Yeah, I’m going to come...

As news spread of his death, mourners gathered and left remembrances in front of the Ocean Beach restaurant on Newport Avenue, creating a makeshift memorial.

    Robert Irvine takes on his biggest challenge yet! He's headed to the Double H Ranch, a 320-acre camp in the Adirondack Mountains of New York for kids with serious or life-threatening illnesses, where, in just three days, he will makeover the single largest space he's ever done. It's an enormous undertaking, but, for these kids, Robert's willing to take on the impossible! (

    With the Food Network, Wal-mart, and even Diabetes drug company Novo Nordisk severing ties Paula Deen, major brand partnerships look dire for the shamed celebrity chef. But just because Deen's cookbooks are being thrown in the clearance bins at local Duane Reades doesn't mean that every company is jumping on the drop-Deen bandwagon. In spite of accusations of racism and using the N-word, Deen still has some (albeit smaller) corporate sponsors that are vocally showing their support. 1) Local food company Sandridge Foods voiced its "unwavering support."

    Washington Post ^ | 06/23/2013
    SAVANNAH, Ga. — Watching Paula Deen’s cooking show was a weekend ritual for Marilynne Wilson, who says she’s furious at the Food Network for dumping the comfort-food queen after she acknowledged using racial slurs in the past. “I was shocked. I thought she’d get a fair trial,” Wilson, a nurse from Jacksonville, Fla., said Saturday after stopping to buy souvenirs at the gift shop Deen owns next to her Savannah restaurant. “I think the Food Network jumped the gun.” A day after announcing that it’s dropping Deen from its roster of celebrity cooks, the cable network was served heaping portions...

    Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the “N-word,” is a supporter of President Barack Obama, campaigning on his behalf in 2008 and cultivating a friendship with first lady Michelle Obama. Though Deen allegedly called Obama the “N-word” in front of her employees, according to a lawsuit, the Southern-bred television personality actually campaigned with Obama in 2008, invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs, and praised the first lady’s healthy eating agenda. …

    Daily Beast/ Newweek ^ | Feb 6, 2012 | Laura Colarusso
    TV’s smartest chef, Alton Brown, is ending his blockbuster show after more than a decade. More than 250 episodes later, Brown has achieved his goal of tutoring the masses, introducing terms like “hygroscopic,” “Maillard reaction,” and “polyphenol oxidase” into the vocabulary of the average home cook. He was the first TV food personality to get cerebral about groceries, helping viewers get to know the properties of ingredients and how best to manipulate them for maximum taste. (What other chef would use Tinkertoys to explain sugar crystallization?) Brown and his wife, DeAnna, built the Good Eats empire from scratch, shooting the...

And yes, even a stupid new Duff Goldman show. Sigh. Read it and weep from this Scripps press release:

    Happy Friday, everyone! As an early Christmas present from me to you, here's a video of liberal stupidity at its finest. Sandra Lee, NY's first-girlfriend-elect, aka Andrew Cuomo's main squeeze, has a show where she makes ghastly food from over-priced ready-made ingredients like pre-chopped mushrooms. Here's her "meatloaf" With the Kwanzaa cake she demonstrates a classic liberal multi-culti stupidity. She makes a "cake" by cutting a store bought angelfood cake in half--well, I'll let you see it. The flavor combination is too gross to describe here. "Aunt Sandy," as she calls herself, obviously doesn't know what Kwanzaa is,...

Frankly, there’s just no way to endure it without the aid of alcohol. That’s probably why Food Network airs it on Friday Night! Even they know you have to be smashed to watch it.

    Iggy Lena and Bob Kutnick knew it was a good idea — open a medically themed sports bar with unfashionable menu items, such as Chili Chest Pain Fries and The Heart Stopper, a three-pound burger. Decorate with a heart defibrillator and sharps containers. Make the tables look like wheelchairs, put salt and pepper in pill bottles and present the bill in a plastic first-aid kit. The result is their 6-week-old Heart Stoppers Sports Grill in Delray Beach, where the menu warns that "consumption of our food will definitely lead to obesity" and there is a standing offer of free food...

    I thought I would be in a better mood in 2010. I mean, you can't do much worse than 2009. But after only 24 days, I'm deeply cranky about several things on the food radar. Watercress-gate: Earlier this month, Food Network aired an episode of "Iron Chef America" starring White House chef Cristeta Comerford competing with Bobby Flay against Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse. The hook: The chefs were to use vegetables harvested from the White House kitchen garden started by Michelle Obama. Only they didn't. Sure, they showed the four chefs tromping through the garden picking and snipping and...

    ...Fieri's meteoric ascent is impressive, but it also makes him one of the culinary world's most polarizing figures. For as many fans as Fieri earns—Dora Long, the creator of Fieri's biggest fan site, says she gets “hundreds of emails a week”—he draws equal detractors. Like Rachael Ray or Emeril Lagasse, Fieri is a food personality who has rapidly outgrown the food, walking the narrow line between technique and celebrity that makes so many in the industry nervous. His recipes have names like “No Can Beato This Taquito,” and “Mac-Daddi-Roni Salad,” and he often effuses about the greasy meals he eats...

    Alton Brown, the host of "Iron Chef America," fell into the turnip patch just before the show began taping several scenes outside the White House in late October. (The best stuff always happens off camera.) On the episode, which will open the show's new season on January 3 on the Food Network, two pairs of chefs will compete: Cristeta Comerford, the White House executive chef, and Bobby Flay go up against the combined forces of Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse. In a collision of politics, cooking and popular culture, Michelle Obama will reveal the secret ingredient that the chefs must...

But the priest-chef wasn’t just cooking for the gathered crowd or TV that June day.“I was talking and I realized that standing two feet away listening to me was Bobby Flay,” recalled Father...

    The intriguing reality is that neither of these two finalists of the Next Food Network Star, Melissa or Jeffrey, have any extensive food background. Which some would say makes it all the sweeter. The contenders were good but the Korean, the Creole or the Healthy could not beat the cooking of the 2009 Next Food Network Star finalists and their charming on screen presence. My choice for the winner. All with pics and video you'll find nowhere else on the Internet.

After two years on the road visiting restaurants for more than 80 shows in the series, Fieri has steeled himself to withstand his own handiwork in most cases. There are times, though, when the memories are too tasty to ignore. "Most of the time, I can...
