  1. I have, and frequently turn to, both Savoring Mexico and Mexico the Beautiful. Superb books each of them!
  2. IMHO having trouble sleeping...just watch this show.
  3. Saw this on the Liquor Control Board web site..... Current Business Name: UNION SQUARE GRILL New Business Name: THE LOST LADY AMERICAN CANTINA Business Location: 621 UNION ST, SEATTLE, WA 98102-2322 Current Applicant(s): CONSOLIDATED RESTAURANTS, INC.

  4. I have been a loyal, dedicated fan thru the first four seasons. Never missed an episode and watched many when they repeated. Here's how much this stinker of a season has grabbed me.....I forgot it was even on TV last night and didn't see it!!!

    I thought it could have potential when I heard about it but the judges seemed very uncomfortable, editing of the judge's coments was horrible, the little shot of the contestants awaiting the judgement ridiculous, and Ted Allen as host is a wooden stick. I'll watch it one more time but do not have high hopes for it.
  6. Just not interesting this time around...not personalities, challenges, food served, judges, etc... Guess I'll wait for Season 6 and hope for the best!
  7. I found a new Washington, DC episode on Travel Channel "On Demand". Very good. Don't know if it is a mistake or not!
  8. Japan was a HUGE improvement over the Southwest episode. Very interesting with great food. Could have watched that knife manufacturing for the whole show!
  9. What a huge let down. Please...Alice Cooper and a hot dog to showcase cuisine in the state of Arizona? One brief stop in New Mexico (which may have been the highlight of the episode for me). Way too much time with Ted Nugent. Yet another TV show doing the 72oz steak eating contest in a Texas restaurant. And the Salton Sea - why? I was so excited for this episode considering the cuisine available in the Southwest and this is what we got.
  10. You can not go wrong with Alice Waters' The Art of Simple Food!
  11. I did. A 4 point loss for Flay with 3 in the "originality" area and just 1 in the "taste" area. I would love to see the individual judge's score cards.
  12. Anyone know where I can find some small buns for cheeseburger sliders?
  13. Don't forget BONNIE SLOTNICK COOKBOOKS @ 163 W 10th St (212.989.8962)...always an excellent place to browse.
  14. Can anyone help with a search for squid ink in Seattle? Thanks much!
  15. A let down. I fell asleep during the last 20 minutes!
  16. You really should check out Alice Waters' The Art of Simple Food: Notes and Recipes from a Delicious Revolution.
  17. Look at www.koobikit.com!
  18. What size bottle of vodka do you use Jon?
  19. Recommendations for eating in Spokane and Cheney during a weekend trip to EWU? Will consider all! Thanks.
  20. If you like that one from Rick Bayless (as I do!) you'll like these..... .....Dona Tomas by Thomas Schnetz and Dona Savitsky .....Rosa's New Mexican Table by Roberto Santibanez
  21. The whole crap about testing the "range" of a Top Chef is ridiculous....cooking from vending machine ingredients....give me a break. Just put some quality ingredients in a basket and ask them to do the same thing. Can we please cook for someone other than kids? Is the prize being given your own TGIF franchise? Betty being given a pass proves the producers have a big say (just as they advertise in the disclaimer) who stays and who goes....you can't justify it given what happened with Otto. I really feel sorry for Tom as he is a Chef to look up to but this stuff lessens his credibility in my eyes when you're pretending this is actually a serious competition.
