Anyone watch dinner impossible?

Anyone watch dinner impossible?

Did you see the one where he was at the Sox park?

Is that guy seriously a chef?

He put guacamole on Swedish meatballs, the wings had somekind of orange goo on the top, and he used what looked like american cheese in the buritos and for a couple other things.

Now I've eaten a the Clubhouse restaurant at the Sox park several times and thats far better than the "gourmet" stuff he prepared.

Yeah, I saw that one. Did you catch that he could only use food from the concession area? Having never been to a Major League Ball Park, I cannot speculate as to what is in the clubhouse pantry. However, part of the challenge for that episode was the limited nature of the ingredients. I thought he was pretty clever to mix the Dippin’ Dots and margarita mix to make a sherbet of sorts. Although I do agree that some of that food looked fairly gruesome, even if creative.

Yeah I saw that, at some point he has to say, look give me some decent ingrentants to work with, like maybe he could have gotten a few things from the clubhouse pantry.

the dot sherbert did look good, but guacamole on sweedish meatballs???? :eek:

For the burritos a better choice would have been nacho cheese that they have with chips instead of the American cheese.

I did not see the episode, but just wanted to say hello to a fellow Sox fan.

But America loves to watch a train wreck being led by the underdog. That's why he gets paid the big bucks.

He works with what he's given in most cases , did you watch it all the way thru.? what was the reaction of the people at the end? did they like it.?

Do you think they will really air the show with clips of people saying the food was terrible?
post #9 of 21
Yes, I watched, and he was only able to use the food from the fast food concession stands that were around.

I don't like that show much. The guy gets angry and pi$$y with anyone who makes the slightest mistake. I caught one show where he was making rice, he burned it. So he remade the rice, and burned it again. It took him three tries to make rice. After that I decided the dude was an a$$clown. Just my opinion, but also I haven't watched the show since.

Hey, they didn't remove your post, its right here, they probably just moved it ot another forum catagory:
http://www.cheftalk.com/forums/late-...cant-cook.html

I am a little disappointed in his performance on throwdown too but there is a difference between cooking 1 meal for a throw down and preparing a gourmet dish for a restaurant. Have you eaten in any of his restaurants?

As for Rachel Ray she can definately cook, you probably wont find any of those dishes on the menu of a 5 star restaurant but for a good meal at home they are good recipies.

Emril can definately cook, and you didn't mention my favorite food network star, Wolfgang Puck, obviously he can cook.

Funny how you mentioned Alton Brown as a good cook, all his meals are done by the test kitchen, and Im not sure he owns any restaurants, while he certainly is a walking food encyclopedia I haven't seen his cooking skills in action. I would like to seem him compete against chairman on ICA.

Did you see the last dinner impossible? Some of those platings were terrible. I think they have a non-chef thats part of the film crew put the plates together for filming. Theres no way a real chef would do those platings.

The post wasn't removed - its just closed for further comments is all.

But, back to topic - yeah he does make some weird mixes and some are not palatable, I saw the episode with the burnt rice too. But you don't get to see all that goes on - he could have had some twit to deal with in the interim - they only show the stuff they think will interest people.

I find the show enjoyable, but in the long run - it is JUST for entertainment. It fills a niche. It doesn't pretend to teach or inform. Like most tv. :)

My favorite dinner impossible was the frozen hotel kitchen. I loved it when he realized that he was cooking outdoors in Quebec in the middle of winter. Can you say brrr its **** cold out here. :chef:how do I keep stuff warm and not melt the hotel:D I thought I was going to die laughing.

Robert Irvine is the Chef's name.

LifeStyle FOOD - Chef - Robert Irvine

As to shouting or getting angry,you think thats bad??:lol:

I've known Chefs that were a little on the edge shall we say.

With what he is given he come sup with inventive dishes.

Of course what should really be noted is the poor quality of the food people eat at sporting events,especially considering the price paid.

Yes its the ice hotel. The look on his face was priceless when he found out how cold it was. Because I used to work outside in that weather I had little sympathy....
