I like it CH should be a very informative show. But what I want to see is you blow $150 a day on food. Who can eat that much? Of course I guess in a place with a good wine list you blow that in one 'I'll have that one' remark.

CR,
I've spent that much on breakfast after a night of Tangeray Martinies. That does not include the maries or the Crystal+oj:eek: :smoking: WAIT!!! I've spent that much for a little sevruga and some lox. before bfast. Granted, this is not my norm, but a buck and a half is nothing to spend on food. It's a 14 inch cake here. We have cust. known to eat a 10" in one sitting. One cust freezes 1/2 has the White choco w/fresh rasp for dinner and the frozen for dessert, says it tastes like ice cream. Fat? not hardly, plays BB for a team going to the playoffs.

If I spent that kind of money on one meal at one time I would be in the poor house! Of course where I live you would have to go too every restaurant in town just to run up a tab like that. OUCH!

What about a show where Chrose and CR are peddaling some sort of bogus cleaning products to hotels and rest. Theywill see if they can barter or just plain ask for meals. I believe they can make thier way across the country eating very well with this concept and never spend a dime for food. like Cakerookie Ray! Or I was thinking about a very high class fashion show for animals dressed in spices. People would then bid on the animal wearing the spices they like and then they dine on their animal, I don't know just yet but I'm thinking Ted Nugant and Pen from Pen&Teller fit into this one. :D

Whoa Pan! The concept sounds pretty good but I don't like the Cakerookie Ray thing thats awful.:lol: How about just plain CR. I think we can do it, what about you CH? Think we can bum our way across the country for food? Hey Pan, we don't have to wash dishes for any of this food do we? We could do a sequel to it too. Pan & CH Invades Europe food travels across the globe. You would have to travel across Europe on donkey back, sleep on the ground and all that other good stuff. You and CH could peddle sugar sculptures you could brave new worlds in the culinary underbelly of Europe. Sorry that underbelly word is on the DJ of Anthony Bourdains book Kitchen Confidential just been waiting for a chance to use that word.;)

Okay idea I guess, but frankly I've cleaned enough kitchens for my meals:D thank you.
How about a comedy show? We make a fake kitchen (open kitchen) stock it with actors playing patrons and then proceed to film the unsuspecting diners who think they are at the latest 5 star restaurant. The Chef(s) supposedly have all been voted the best upcoming chefs in the country and they all act like a compilation of the biggest a-holes we have ever worked for.
The Chef is drunk, the food is cold and or burned, the desserts are underbaked etc. We get to see the peoples reactions all the way through the meal and when all is said and done, like Candid Camera we tell them they have been duped. Then we give them a certificate to go have a "real meal" at Pizza Hut!:D

I think we have the makings of a real prime time line up here fellows. But we have left out one key element in all this "The Iron Chef" saga. We could call it "The Cheftalk Battle Royale" we could have Pan as Iron Cheftalk Italian, CH has Iron Cheftalk USA, don't know who would be Iron Cheftalk Japanese. Me I would just fill in when they needed someone that doesn't know what they are doing.

Whoa! guys. not washing dished. You can bartar some of that soap!
Chrose, you're idea is a good one buy close to what's on the tube now.
I was saving Iron Chef for later because it's a little involved. I has to do with different type of cooking mediums with iron and fire. The buried BBQ pit in Lave stone ,as close to the volcano as one can stand, might have some liability issues to get past.
Nicko will head up all the outdoor,forest,camping stuff. He has a lot of experience doing this and can actually start a fire with two sticks and a match (or something like that).
Also one cooking show with the blue man group,
one very serious cooking show for the home audience with those two English guys who double talk. A live call in question and answer part will have to accompany this one.
Live on the street in Greenland.
Preparing a passionate Dinner, drinks,and whatever happens in zero gravity.

It's the Pan-Cake Show!

I just noticed that Pannini and Cakerooooooooooookie were sort of going off into some side street, back alley tangent and I saw that we sort of let off on the Rachel Ray bashing. I know I'm no Cafe Moderator, but lets get back to pouring over how Rachel "Nails on the chalkboard" Ray is such a tremendous pain in our sides. I'll refreshen our session...She never really cooks anything. What is her background? Was she a line cook ever? Was she a chef someplace? Or did she wake up one day and say: "Someday, I want my own show were I can demo Easybake Ovens"? She's a bloody waste of air time! She needs to be on the Fool Network channel deep frying "dino-nuggets in a Fry Daddy. Ugh!!!!
post #72 of 94
You nailed it Ch! Good idea..
post #73 of 94
Tbickle,
The tangent is because I have nothing against RR or any other. I'm bashing the concept of FTV.
But ok back on track. What is with leaving a 12% or less tip? I'm not really liking the hiring of large mouths! RR and the directors daughter. OMG on one show I was tyhinking to myself that she might be able ot fit the the small BB plate in her mouth:suprise:

Well we certainly want Tbickle to stay, so I'm thinking something along the SNL lines for TB doing a RR show. I think he has enought imput to make it a weekly feature.

Bot, you are not left out. Whens the ground breaking ceremony for Pans new TV station? If you have read the posts you'll know he is having a blast with this thing. Matter of fact so am I. So what do you think of all our TV show ideas?

LOL CR you are so sweet (no pun intended :) I hope you know I was batting my eyelashes while typing that ;)

The quadrupeds are researching opposable digit transplants for their paws so they can carry shovels, and I am waiting for a grant from the AIWF any day now.... :rolleyes:

I got the space, the energy, the looks, and a huge spatula. My husband thinks I'm the bomb Pawsome, my boyfriends think I'm fabulous, oh, and did I mention I can occaisionally cook too? (oh, woops, did I just say that out loud?)

Bring it on gang! Lets do it -- life's too short. :bounce:

Cheers!

Well since RR is off limits, how about we discuss candlewick dressing gowns. Mrs Sqews dressing gown was nicked off the clothes line in 1962. It was pink. It was found decades later when a dr. hitched the flap of fat up off a locals knees, that had descended to their ankles. But was no longer pink. The nation was in an uproar. Scandal, newspaper headlines, sermons, state of the country addresses. It was a grim time for us dear people. Grim indeed. But we fought through, as Kiwis do. Poor Mrs. S got such a shock she died. It was a lovely funeral. Lots of vegemite sammies, and the local boys played a game of rugby on their front lawn. Broke their front brick fence down, and a few neighbours window panes went west. The police closed the road because the players got a bit 'far reaching', and the game ended up 20 miles away. But they came back for the beer. The road was still closed, but what are barriers for? The first 15 were there, both sides, along with with about 60 reserves on both sides. It pays to be ready. Since the brick wall was gone, it gave much larger scope. And very interesting bounces from the rugby ball. Bricks are quite fun really. What can I say, Perhaps never nick a candlewick dressing gown, It could be a start anyway.

Well, all right then, back to RR. (She said, plodding wearily back to the so called subject). If RR was my daughter, and she did so well I would standing on my capacious patio and clapping for all I was worth. It's a bit like Cheers, Friends, and other laugh fest programmes, chewing gum for the mind, and we are regularly reminded that it is funny from the constant braying from the laugh machine. At least we are not subjected to that indignity on RR. She is lovely to look at, bright, and personable.

So her mise en place is done by another. so? I would imagine it would be very hard to keep the pace on tv. I could not do it, and I suggest most of us couldn't. It is a pity that RR bashing is so much fun, and so easy to do. But consider the good she is doing in this boxed additive laden society. And for people who do not understand even the most basic principles of cookery. These berefit people who think going down to the take away for chicken and chips is high dining. She is bringing salads and veg. Showing how to present pastas, and attendant dressings. I think she should maintain a prominent segment on tv.

Bot,
OMGosh, this is not my station by any means, it will be CTTV. You are the diamond! We haven't figured it out yet but something like dollywood but much classier.
NO ONE PERSON will be left out. The draw show will be three complete cooking sets stocked with everything. We will have a perpetual open call for all those who wish to give a shot at a cooking show. Actually I think we should leave it open to whatever you can do with food. Maybe some can fix VW's with a hambone or something. Unlike FN we won't be giving just any jahoo a show. 3 or 4 time a day we will let persons hava a go. Sort of like the first few American idol tryouts. We will have a panel made up with the elders of CT and whatever famous personalities who wish to join. Kind of like the gong show, when the panel has made a decision to end the tryout, they will cut all energy to the set. So basically this will be a place for CTers to spend a portion of their vacation time. There wil be weekend car shows, and things of that nature.
My only concern is that there is available acreage to expand.

Good idea, Pan. I can dress up like RR (My chest and hers are the same...I don't have boobies...) and do a sketch called: Forty Dollars a Day To Eat as Cheap as I can and be a Prick to all the Servers I Encounter by giving Sh*tty Tips. ok, sort of a long title for a regular sketch. I think it may be fun to dress in drag for Halloween this year as RR and pop into restaurants around town and give the wait staff a scare.

Whoa!!! Wait just a hot second there! I don't want to "bam" any southern lady unless she's a 23 year old ATL hottie! You are more than welcome to second servings of Miss Paula, but I'll Gina in a heartbeat! She's a super cute Italia-American that looks like she can make a venti canoli dissapear! Mama mia!!! I'd like to lick tiramisu from her...sorry, got a little carried away there, but you get the idea. I'd like to see Mario, Emril, and RR in a no holds barred paint-ball death match.

Oh boy I was afraid of that this post is starting to get ugly. Oh well its all in fun right! So on with the show Pan!!!!!!!!!
post #88 of 94
I was flipping back and forth through the channels last night and of course what was on? RR with Tasty Travels or whatever, and $40/day. She was in Italy and you know what? I did my best to ignore her and focus on the show and the food. If you took her out of the equation the shows would be pretty good. You can learn some little tips and it may even give you some vacation ideas. So I guess the shows are good, I just get really tired of watching her take a little bite and go mmmm, that's super! And give a little mini review blecchh. Just once I would like to see her gag and give us a little lesson on what not to order.....Mmm that really tastes like sh#@

OK, so we have to come up with some type of tele gadjet like dvr,pvr,etc. This one will play the show but just black out the personality. I really think we should not only black it out but put in some cartoonish character with moving lips.
What's the show? I've only caught it a couple of times I think on Travel. Middle aged man with english accent. He does a little cooking segment at the end of his journey. Last he was in Africa I believe. He was cooking some carp fillets, and a green peppercorn sauce?
Chrose:eek: carp:smoking:

Clutch Cargo!!
Ooh carp, eeyew. We used to have a beach house on the Chesapeake Bay with a lake on the other side. When it rained hard and the lake overflowed into the bay there would be carp stranded on the road. My grandmother would pick them up and try to cook them and my dad wouldn't let her. One time though she went to the store and got a carp from the grocer and baked it, my god it was awful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:cry:
I like the idea though of a Clutch Cargo type show. We could have show on 3-5 star restaurants and their kitchens (which actually I would love to see) but then for a host of the show we could have a cartoon of Escoffier and Careme with moving lips just for Chef Kaiser!:bounce:
