Yellow peppers are the source of my power!
Taking a store-bought pound cake and cutting it into a desert that looks like french-fries does not make your "cooking" surreal. Nor, for that matter, does smothering the wild-cut salmon you ruined with dishwasher poaching in a heavy green jalapeno/dill sauce so your diners can’t see the damage you wrought. Copping a feel of your cute assistant (who really was the show’s best asset) on camera does kind of confirm that underneath your goofy exterior you’re just a creep, but at least that was genuine. Note to self: Stop staring at the cute Irish woman's breasts...

Now, turning a bank of three old school lockers into a cold smoker? That is utter brilliance. Mr. Brown, I want to be your assistant even though I get the sense that you’re probably a bear to work for. Teach me the ways of the Force.

I’ve also decided that Takeshi Kaga’s character is really just an anime villain who has somehow found a way to manifest in the physical realm. Thankfully, he has become so obsessed with worldly pleasures that he has been distracted from bringing his army of flying ninjas and demon sex lovers into our reality.

Update: Now with all new links!

Your links are bad, champ.

But yes: Alton Brown is the bizzomb.

For some reason, the quotation marks didn't translate when I did the cut & paste from word. I've gone through and replaced them, so they should be working now. Nothing fancy... I didn't have time to do a proper search.

Alton Brown? I learned more in that 1/2 hour than I did in a year's worth of Jeff Smith's Frugal Gourmet. He's a guerilla chef, and that's good by me.

Word's character set is thoroughly incompatible with standard HTML. Shock and consternation!

This is for you.

The Surreal Gourmet did kinda suck, didn't he?

Sometimes it works, others not. It makes me sad.

The appeal of the SG is going to lie primarily with those folks who are just jaded enough that they believe that titilation is a substitute for genuine experience... the very same folks that Steve Martin poked fun at in L.A. Story when he ordered the "double half-calf non-fat soy spooned triple foam latté" (or whatever it was.)

I think I said the best that can be when I threw my hands in the air and said, "Bleargh!"

Thanks for the link. It's been incorporated into the new and improved post.

Alton Brown looks like Rob Ciccolini.
