TV Chef's

Post  Rodger on Mon Mar 09, 2009 10:57 am

Watching that crazy lady Paula Deen on her show is a way to end a stressful work week. This past Friday her guest chefs were Katie Joel, Billy's beautiful new wife and Max Brenner. Max Brenner is this bald chocolate man. No, he's not a black dude. He owns this place in NYC called Chocolate By The Bald Man.




Anyway, as the show progressed Max put melted chocolate into syringes. He gave one of these chocolate loaded weapons to Paula. This dame went crazy and started shooting the syringe at Max's bald head. He was mad, she apologized and then started licking the chocolate off of his head. I was floored. It was so funny. After licking every bit of the chocolate off of his bald head, she gave him several head rubs. I swear the lady is possessed.

Heavenly Nigella Lawson got my vote. I'd eat anything she'd cook!

Nigella's nice to look at, but sources indicate that her cooking leaves much to be desired.


On the Bald Chef front there's Nathan Lyon. He hosts his own cooking show on the Discovery Health Network.


His bio is quite interesting.
This is from Lyon's Blog, The Road To Discovery Health


My road to being a chef has been the road less traveled.

Growing up the youngest of three boys was great at times, when they would take me to parties with them, and not so great when they would do what older brothers do best: beat me up. But either way it's no secret that the youngest gets the most attention, bruised or not.

My grandparents lived a mere four houses down the street so that I could easily escape my brothers' wrath to the safety of my grandmother's kitchen or garden, where my grandfather would be gardening for her. So my relationship with fresh food developed during these early years. Even growing up in Arlington, Virginia made the Blue Ridge Mountains, picking fresh peaches and apples, and ultimately my great-grandmother's farm, fairly accessible. Gathering fresh eggs from under the chickens and helping to dig up thistles (sharp spiny plants) so that the cows wouldn't eat them was a treat. One less chicken somehow translated into an amazing grilled chicken dinner. Both sets of grandparents also had modest cabins near water, so my family would go fishing and crabbing at least once a year. Fresh seafood has never been more delicious than when you catch it yourself.

At a young age I had a natural attraction to the arts, drawing inspiration from my Mom, in the fields of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and cooking. I also developed quite the work ethic, which I learned from my Dad. I inherited my paper route from my oldest brother, Craig, whom I used to assist free of charge. Years later I began waitering, then I was a dishwasher, landscaper, worked at a nursing home, and even spun records during college. I enjoyed acting too, which began while playing The Lion in our third grade production of The Wizard of Oz. Seemed like an appropriate role don't you think?

My degree is in Health Science, which involved anatomy (cadavers), physiology, chemistry, and biology. So when I moved out to Los Angeles it made since to complete a course in which to become an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). So I find the human body an amazing thing with which to respect and care for, inside and out. I even had the wonderful opportunity to join others and help raise money for AIDS research by bicycling from Fairbanks, Alaska to Anchorage. A life changing event, indeed.

Now at the age of 36 I work with farmers at local farmer's markets, and have finally attained my dream, that being to share and teach. What better medium than television? What better a network than Discovery Health? Who knew that the majority of my jobs, activities, and education were all somehow applicable to what I am doing now.

I've been to Emeril's in NOLA. He puts the BAM in Cajun' cooking.
Of the remaining chef's listed in the poll, I wouldn't mind eating something prepared by Giada.

The latest group of contestants will find the 7th season of ****'s Kitchen to be far from 7th heaven. And like most seasons, this season can already be summed up with one word: RISOTTO.

You know, I don't think the contestants watched the show previously. They have no excuse for badly cooked risotto or raw halibut. It's like showing up to Wheel of Fortune and being illiterate.

Chef Ramsey could some anger management.

"Chopped" is a cool show. Headshaver Chris Santos is a judge there and at least one headshaver in the weekly competition.

There's toooo much going on in that show. All that knife action gives me a migraine.
Symon is cool though.

The chance that the Next Foodnetwork Star could be this guy is rather slim....
he finished in the bottom three. The critique was that he should lose some of his attitude. Good luck Das.

The is the show that launched the career of Guy Fieri, got off to a decent start with chef
Wolfgang Puck in the house.

I predict Aria to be the winner. She's got spunk. I like spunk!!

These two can be found once again creating good food and riding their motorcycle/side car on the all new Cooking Channel.

Das couldn't cut the mustard. He's gone.
