Iron Chef Leaving? - Page 2

That's what happens when you start hanging out with us NASCAR people. :lol:

Truly, that is sad though, I don't want to see him gone.

I don't know if I could find PBS on my dish lineup. I've never seen it. This could be bad for me.

I rarely ever see any cooking shows on PBS. Maybe I just don't watch at the right time. Sara Moulton would be a good fit, I think. I'd love to see more of Ellie Krieger. She's always on when I am not at home. Saturday mornings are usually family outing days. I want to learn how to cook more healthy foods for my family while still keeping them tasty and there just isn't much of that on tv right now.

I doubt I'll ever get to see any of the shows on PBS. Oh well. Can't win them all.
From my point of view, I can't imagine why they would want to push Mario out. He seems like one of the nicest guys on FN.
Regarding the general dissatisfaction with FN, I'd like to weigh in. Why do they have all those contests and so called reality shows? And why are weekends such wastelands? Most of the shows are not really (I mean . . . really) about cooking at all. And what's up with The Next Food Network Star? I hate to be negative about an individual, but The Gourmet Next Door girl was my absolute last choice-given that I only caught a few shows. Maybe I just don't understand it all. ??????

Of course, you can get Ellie's recipes on line at the Food Network web site. Also, try this site for healthy recipes: Recipes - Eating Well and this site The World's Healthiest Foods for lots of good information about healthy foods and a number of quick, easy, and healthy recipes.

I like Iron Chef. It is wholesome entertainment, compared to a lot of the trash that is out there. I do realize that everything is scripted and yet, I still enjoy watching it. My favorite chef is Cat Cora, of course! Meow!

Just to let you guys know, everything is not scripted. They really do cook, and they really do get judged. And they really do pick a winner. And it REALLY is based on food. Ha, sorry for all they "reallys". There are scripted parts, like the whole Chairman non-sense and everything.

Thanks for the websites! I've looked at some of Ellie's recipes online and tried one for hummus which my daughter and I really liked. In reality, I'm horrible about cooking from a recipe and much more likely to remember to buy the ingredients and make it from memory if I see it. Does that make sense? I know weird! When I go looking for a recipe, it's to cook right then with no waiting and 9 times out of 10, I'm missing important ingredients. If I think about cooking it for a while after seeing it, I'll remember to put the ingredients on my shopping list. I know I'm weird. lol

At one time I thought he might have made a decent Iron Chef competetor, but no longer. Too much glitz, not serious enough any more. Really sad! I've seen him burn things because he was too busy being a showman.

I dont mind Emeril at all. He is a great chef. You guys just need to realize, he does what the network wants. He does what the people want. They go there for the show. They dont go there just to watch him cook, thats what essence of Emeril is for. You know how hard it must be cooking live, while trying to entertain. Alot harder than it looks. Believe me.

Yeah, I cook live every day...

I can well imagine. I'd rather watch him on a visit to Johnson and Wales or in a situation where he is a chef rather than a television personality. As I've said here before, I remember seeing him on PBS with Julia Child, showing her how to do a Louisiana crawfish boil. He was charming and totally focused on what he was doing. I miss that, more so because I find some of the things he does on his show kind of embarassing ("Oh yeaaaaah, babe!" and the Three Stooges stuff) for someone with his culinary talent.

I loved watching Mario in Iron chef. In the last episode with him in it that I saw, he was in a great mood and poured wine for the judges. He seemed so in tune that it made my respect for him sky rocket. I didn't like the Molto Mario show very much.

As for Emeril, *shakes head* I'm not even going there.

The people of Canada have spoken; we don't even have Emeril anymore. Now working on Rachel Ray...

I'm moving to Canada if you find a way to get Rachel off. She's my least favorite.
