Cheflebrity Smörgåsbord: All Wound Up


– A Mario Batali gift that doesn’t involve copious amounts of red wine and Florentine steaks the size of your head?  Where’s the fun in that?

– “Padma Would Rather Be Naked.”  Click away, perverts!

After the jump…we reach the food reality show saturation point, we find out who drew the short straws at Food Network this Thanksgiving and fun with food/music puns.

– Is anyone watching Chef Academy?  It’s clear that Bravo has turned its attention toward crashing White House parties.

– When I heard there would be a Food Network float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, I wonder who would get roped into it.  Sorry, ladies! Fun Fact:  Mrs. TVFF can’t tell the difference between Claire Robinson and Aida Mollenkamp.

– IFC’s Dinner with the Band chows down with your favorite musicians.  When will the Kaiser Roll Chiefs be on?  How about Neil Young & Crazy Horseradish?  The best puns left in the comments get you a coveted spot among our commenters of the week!

    I watched the first episode of Chef Academy — a mid-day rerun, on a day when I was sick and stuck in bed and out of library books. I didn’t hate it. I’d certainly watch it again if a rerun coincided with a need to fold laundry. I’d even consider watching it regularly if Bravo broadcast it at a reasonable evening hour when there wasn’t another decent show on, something like 9pm on a Tuesday. But for some reason, they show new episodes at 11pm. WTF, Bravo? Why do you fill your prime-time evening hours with reruns of Real Housewives, and then save new programming for 11pm? I KNOW I am your key demographic — I’m a 30ish mom with disposable income, a KitchenAid stand mixer, and a subscription to Harper’s Bazaar — and 30ish moms like me don’t have the energy to stay up until midnight watching reality programming.

    Forgive the rant. I’m just extra-pissed at Bravo today because they’re premiering an interesting-looking new fashion series at 11 tonight, and there’s no way I can stay up past Top Chef.
