My chef is going to be on Cutthroat Kitchen in a few minutes. He's Chef Paul Friedman from Peli Peli here in Houston. I've been working with him for a little over 3 years now and I love him to death but there's a high probability he does something stupid or acts like an idiot on the show. Enjoy!

Edit: I spoke too soon, he's already acting like an idiot

he seems pretty famous, eh?

City of Gold is on Hulu and it's pretty loving awesome

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__2uT1cZWkY

Edit: I'm kind of ashamed I hadn't heard of Jonathan Gold before. He's the first food critic to win the Pulitzer Prize, and after listening to some of his writing it's easy to see why. He applies a kind of poetry to food writing in the way Ebert did to film. On top of that his whole shtick was searching out hole in the wall places and understanding different neighborhoods. It's an incredibly democratizing way of looking at food criticism.

I'm not sure if this has been posted here yet:

Raja, Rasoi Aur Anya Kahaniyaan is a TV series about food that's on Netflix. Each episode focuses on a different region of India and its signatures dishes as well as history and culture. It's like A Bite Of China, but Indian. The first season is on Netflix, by the way.

Anybody watching ATK sans Kimball? It's good, just different. I'm sure the two ladies will work out their chemistry as the season progresses it's just awkward as neither really takes any lead so it like the television equivalent of two people saying "no, after you" over and over at each other.

The Greater Goon: Breaking Hearts and Chains since 2006


I didn't know whether to post this in the TV Cooking thread or the MLB thread, so I'm posting it in both.

quote:

Prince Fielder's career was cut short, but he's still cooking ... literally
Prince Fielder is surprisingly upbeat just six months after medical issues brought his baseball career to an abrupt and tearful end.

He spends a lot of time shuttling his sons, Jadyn, 12, and Haven, 10, back and forth to baseball and basketball games and practices, and he's diving into a new field with a cooking-and-interview show called "Fielder's Choice,'' which he'll co-host with his wife.

And you have a new venture coming out soon?

PF: I have a food show that's going to be streaming on Netflix and Hulu. It's coming out around the beginning of spring training in March, I believe. It's not just baseball people. It's a mixture of baseball people, actors, musicians, chefs and whatnot. They bring out different dishes, and at the end of the show, I give the one I like the most the "Fielder's choice." It's good TV.

How did that come about?

PF: A friend of mine asked me a question at the end of 2015. We were going over my finances and setting things up for the future when she said, "What do you want to do when you retire?" I said, "I always wanted to do a food show." I thought it might be a cool thing to do when I retired a few years later. Then retirement came slightly prematurely.

Who are some of the guests you're having on the show?

PF: Chazz Palminteri, the actor. Jose Feliciano, the guy who sang, "Feliz Navidad." Xzibit (the rapper). CC Sabathia. I can't reveal the other names yet, but there are a couple more cool ones coming up.

Do you have any favorite food shows?

PF: I like all of them. One of my favorites is on Vice -- Action Bronson in "F---, That's Delicious." That's the name of the show.

When I was playing, my wife and kids would go on the road with me, and we would go to different lunch spots that we saw on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." She would look something up on the internet and find the best restaurants and these little sandwich and taco spots, and we would go there.

When they figure out the chemistry (and that's just a function of time) it's going to be pretty good.

My wife and I watch it, but we're not super fond of it. We both miss the history parts of some of the recipes (Or is that more of a Cook's Country thing? We watch both and they blend together...). Their chemistry is weird, too. It seems very scripted and heavy handed with their jokes/commentary. I'm hoping it gets better, as we both enjoy the show a great deal.

I made it maybe only 7 minutes through the first episode I watched of america's test kitchen with kimball and it was painfully loving awkward and completely devoid of any useful content, so I can't even imagine how terrible it is now given your review

I'm four episodes in and so far it's the best season out of all of them. The life stories are more interesting and the food is generally humbler. Episode 4 is a New York Jew making ramen and telling everyone to go gently caress themselves.

Wife and I binged season 3 of Chef's Table over the past couple nights, the show is completely insane and over-the-top and I love it for that. If they ever make a documentary of my life's work I hope they play Vivaldi over it.

We were supposed to go to Gaggan (from season 2) last year when we were in Thailand but they gave away our reservation despite calling months in advance, that was a huge bummer.

What do you mean they gave it away?

The first episode of the first season, when the music kicks it up a notch and builds into this big crescendo as they reveal all the dishes.... I cried.

Food TV isn't meant to be that emotional but those film makers know their craft.

Maybe "gave away" isn't the right term but we called them a few months in advance and they told us to check back in a few weeks before we were supposed to go, and when we checked back in they no longer had our reservation logged and were booked solid. Fortunately my wife is from Thailand so we can try again next time we go visit her family

I've been watching that. It's basically softcore food porn, and so I'm really enjoying it obviously.

Plus Natoto Takenaka is pretty good in everything I've seen him in.

Is the thread to ask about GBBO cookbooks? I grabbed Ruby's Crumb, Chetna's The Cardamom Trail and Mary Berry's Baking Bible from Amazon today but holy gently caress it looks like finalists start cranking out books the second they leave the tent. Has anyone else tried any of them? Are Paul's books as douchey as he is? (Do we still care about spoiling S3?)

For some reason Australian Netflix just got BBQ Pitmasters. I want to eat everything.

In addition to godlike food, I've also learnt a fair bit myself, and it's a pretty interesting look into an intense culture.

my dad is singularly obsessed rn with this japanese eating show named kodoku no gourmet
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Kodoku_no_Gurume
it's about this guy who travels and eats poo poo in japan
the episodes have one format and one format only:
1. he does some desultory business poo poo for like 2 minutes
2. fucks off
3. eats food, delicious food
like, actually eats it, the actor guy
if it's a second take, he eats some more
even see swallowing
guy's a pro

so my dad calls it a mukbang, which is not inaccurate, tbh

also, despite it being about food in real restaurants, literally every single person, the server, the other customers, the people he does business with, is a paid-up union actor, so no stupid food show bullshit. every word of the business pablum and the server's talking is scripted. but they could cheap the gently caress out on main characters, since it's.... the one guy.
it's him eating, completely alone, in peace
also loving weird-rear end internal monologue
also god-tier facial expressions



according to my dad, translated:
"hmm, if they aired this in the US, it would be pretty popular"
mom in the same chatroom:
"they already have this poo poo in the us"
dad:
"hmm.... no they dont"
"guy smokes too much for a pg rating tho"

lol watching the pork foot episode and he burns the pork foot in the yakiniku style dealio
much cinema verite

now that I'm being forced to watch, now there's like a normal-cooking show portion which shows the degree to which normal go-travelling-around food shows suck, cuz they aren't composed of someone just... eating... alone...

there isn't even that many episodes of the lonely gourmet, he's just been repeating them over and over
the last time dad got this bad was when he watched "as good as it gets" 200 times in a row
