Bourdain: Walking on Waters

Thursday, April 23, 2009

I’ve been wanting to add a section on food news, stuff about celebrity chefs and food fame, but I’m way not cool enough. So to ensure the kind of quality you’ve grown to expect from FoodMayhem, we’ve added a new writer, Sheng C, who is cool enough. He’s a “taste bud” (a friend […]

Interview with Cat Cora

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

A few weeks ago, we got to meet Cat Cora, the only female Iron Chef, in person! She is just adorable, as you can see from this great pic Lon took of her. Despite being a celebrity chef, she has an incredibly warm vibe and seems really down to earth.

She’s got so much on her […]

Top Chef Update (Finalists)

Friday, February 13, 2009

We watched Episode 12 of Top Chef last night (spoilers coming). To say the least, we’re not crazy about this season of the show, although we still watch it — we love the cooking.
If you recall, after the first episode in November I made some predictions about the results. A month into the […]

Payard Pisses Me Off

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

Back when I was in culinary school, I was told that celebrity chefs put out cookbooks with recipes that weren’t tested, and sometimes not even written by that big name chef. Hearing that really disappointed me but I had never experience a problem first hand, until now.
A couple of weekends ago, I decided to make […]

Top Chef Run Down

Sunday, November 16, 2008

Last season we waited until Episode 7 of Top Chef before we made any commentary. However, we enjoy the show, despite it’s numerous flaws. Several of the chefs have gone on to interesting careers including Hung and Harold. This year, Kasi recommended us posting some predictions and early thoughts.
Spoilers Ahead…
After only the […]

Top Chef – Season 4 – Episode 7

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Lon and I are kind of disappointed that Jennifer got kicked off this time, not because we love her, we don’t, but we thought Antonia or Lisa would get kicked off for basically disregarding the rules of their challenge: They were supposed to make Polish Sausage and just […]

Hell’s Kitchen

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

First, Lon and I love Gordon Ramsey, the Simon Cowell of kitchen reality shows. I wish I could just occasionally scream at some of the morons I’ve encountered and tell them exactly what I think of them.
So, who picked the bozos on this season of Hell’s Kitchen? None of the contestants show much potential and […]

Who is Padma Lakshmi?

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Most foodies know Padma as the host of Top Chef but she’s also a former supermodel, somewhat successful actress, and has written two cookbooks. Yes, I’m incredibly envious of her. I’m short, probably will never be in a movie, don’t have any published cookbooks, and I don’t get to taste all that food on Top […]

Time Out Schools Rachel Ray

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Lon and I have made fun of Rachel Ray’s $40 a Day so many times. It’s a ridiculous show concept. Any one of my friends can eat for less than $40 a day in New York City. Lily and I were just talking about it today and she found that Time Out New York has […]

Hung Solo

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Some people in my family keep kosher, and several of my close friends are kosher. One of the problems of keeping kosher is finding great food at restaurants. In my experience, most of the time kosher restaurants sacrifice flavor for the fact that they must pay for the kashrut certification. That said, there are […]
