Never meant to insult your pop, nyfirepatrolchef!Im anything but smug or scientific..but how do YOU know about who my father is when even *I* dont?
If you are not a Smug Scientific Bastard, I don't see the appeal that Alton Brown's show holds. Unless I am baking, I rarely measure exactly.
I don't really understand why people don't take Bourdain seriously or don't give him any respect because of his bleeped out monolouges or honesty on t.v. Some choose wisely to ignore him since they'd rather watch the Halycon antiseptic likes of Sara Moulton (whom I am sure can actually cook), but give me a broken down scarred chef any day.
But seriously ladies and germs....I like Alton cuz hes offbeat and just a bit to the left of center. I identify with my own. But as is evidenced here somewhere on the site, I really like Bourdain too because of HIS think out of the box style.
Id GLADLY cook for either one of them at work
Oh....Sara Moulton too...Ive spoken to her on air several times...she good people!~
AB brings diversity to the ailing FN--but I am biased. The day they off Molto Mario and A Cook's Tour in place of more shows like "The Best of" or "how to boil water" will be the day of a thousand protests.
Inciditentally, I have occasionally caught "Cookworks"--has anyone else seen this show. I rather like her--Donna Something?
