Thank you for Q&Aing ... I'm getting a kick out of the disclaimers, and salute you for not merely cutting and pasting!

During your time at Food Network, was there a particular show, or topic, or even ingredient eliciting a strong negative response from viewers? What were the objections?

Yes, this is something I am particularly interested in -- like did wacky animal rights groups ever call you guys for the airing of unedited chopping up of live lobsters and other still wriggling ingredients on Iron Chef?

the only thing i recall was one episode of "extreme cuisine" where placenta cooking was discussed but not shown.

i recall some letters about that.

to be honest i don't really recall much anger about ingredients at all.
