    Another cooking show.. Guy's Ranch Kitchen

    In the same vein as The Chef Show I posted about here, I'd encourage you all to check out Guy Fieri's "Guy's Ranch Kitchen". While Fieri has a ton of stuff on Food Network that appeals to a lot of different sensibilities, GRK is a wellspring of ideas.

    The format is Guy coming up with a theme, e.g. small plates or picnic food or whatever and then several very good chefs coming up with dishes loosely riffing on that format. The chefs are mostly very very good (Traci des Jardin, Jonathan Waxman, Antonia Lofaso etc) and because there are several different chefs, you get to see varying interpretations of the theme.

    The nice thing is that the recipes are all on the Food Network site, so if you want to try a dish, you can.

    When I was a kid in small town Northern California I remember Guy with his hot dog stand.


      So he's done 5 seasons already? That's a lot of binge-watching to do!

        It is! The way I watch it is to find a theme I'm interested in. Most of them are interesting but some are closer to what I might want to do. And the themes vary - a few are things like holiday meals but the new episode was 'layered food' which saw people make layered pasta dishes, wagyu kimchi scallion pancakes and a layered drink called The Dubliner.

        Some chefs also do things that I want to learn about too (Voltaggio and his simulacrums of 'dirt' for vegetable dishes, Lofaso for most everything).

        The thing to remember is that they're not doing a menu, they're all riffing on a theme so some dishes in a show might wow you, others might be eh. Almost all, though, are things you could do at home - they don't rely on really exotic ingredients or have 53 steps that need 5 days to complete.

          I know what I'm watching tonight. Thanks!


        Missed this post originally. But caught the first 3 mins of an episode that we TOTALLY want to watch, with Jonathan Waxman and others cooking some dishes we'd love to try. Firing up the Discovery App later to catch it.

          There's a lot of good stuff on this series - he really does invite some amazing chefs... Waxman, Voltaggio, Lofaso and more. Also, if you're like me you just want to have a huge kitchen and some famous chef friends over to cook up a storm.

        Yes this is a good one. Wifey and me watch it whenever we can. Which is anytime it’s on to be honest. 😂


          Looks like it requires a Discovery subscription to watch. Are there other options anybody knows of? I'd like to watch but not really looking to sign up for another streaming service. I guess if I have to though, I might just subscribe, binge watch this series and then cancel.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
