Yeah, that’s right, it’s a green table… With our recent post on the free boudin selection, I felt like we might be getting dangerously commercial at We Are Never Full, but that was nothing compared to last night’s dinner at The GreenTable, sponsored, as it was, by those corporate behemoths, Visa Signature. How strange, we […]

I’m depressed and want to throw up. According to Forbes Magazine, Rachael Ray** is the top-earning celebrity chef (have I mentioned before how much I HATE that term – NOTE TO FORBES: SHE-IS-NOT-A-CHEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). The world must really be coming to an end. When will it end!?!!??!?! Ray-ray supposedly makes a nice $18 million per year. […]

Well, not exactly. Here’s what (A certain national celebrity mag) magazine’s daily news clips e-mail The Dirt reported today: “Insiders say Rachel Ray’s daytime show will be taken off the air at the end of her contract in 2010. Apparently, her ratings are sliding.” We are at pains to remind our readers that while we […]

So, the headline above might be slightly hyperbolic, but the sentiment I’m trying to convey is very real and serious. Last night, UK TV cooking legend, Delia Smith’s new show Delia premiered on BBC2 and instead of garnering the rave reviews virtually every one of her previous series have, this one has been roundly panned, […]

A few weeks ago, Mario Batali’s ridiculously famous and popular New York City restaurant, Babbo, was named the #1 Italian restaurant in the whole city. Whoa… that’s pretty much an honor considering the amount of Italian restaurants here. I believe there are more Italian restaurants in the 5 boroughs than any other type of cuisine. […]

Well, it looks as though either my blog has been read by Fool Network execs or there are more people out there wondering where the diversity has been on the station (NOTE: There are alot of other blogs discussing how homogeneous TFN has become, not only me). Starting at the beginning of February (Feb. 2nd, […]

Although we are still recovering from our 14-hour cooking fest that was Christmas Eve, we had an absolute blast and were proud of ourselves for successfully producing 6 courses for 11 people. It was EXHAUSTING, make no friggin’ mistake. We cooked from about noon till 7PM on Sunday and from 10AM till 5 on Christmas […]

Supposedly, the Food Network is canning Emeril Live! I won’t say this is 100% true as I’m still doing research, but it looks like it could be true. His contract is up in the spring and Food Network will keep Essence of Emeril going, but cancel Live. It’s not enough to bring this girl back […]

During a brief, but animated, post-lunch discussion of the various Food Network “stars” with several of my work colleagues today, it was posited that Alton Brown’s show “Good Eats” is popular with men, and men only, because it’s a show about gadgets. For me, Alton Brown is one of the few non-annoying characters on the […]

Just found out that another one bites the dust for the oldies (but true goodies) from the Fool Network. Sara Moulton has either been 1) asked to leave the Food Network by not having her contract renewed because she’s not K-RAZY enough, has relatively no cleavage, is actually classically trained and/or doesn’t have a tag […]

So, recenty I’ve been noticing that my blog-rant about the annoying Rachel Ray (and many other Food Network ‘personalities’) has been producing big hits on this blog (ok, big hits for this blog, which is probably nothing compared to other well-known ones). This, of course, excites me since I used to get happy when we […]

Thanks to Alana, Kerry and Coyle (some of my bff’s) for bringing to my attention the following earth-shattering news. Hold on to your asshole’s kids… be ready to be BLOWN away with excitement! This is from People mag’s daily update I get from my friend Kerry who works for the mag: Rachael Ray is launching […]
