What to Watch: Midnight Barbecue on Smollett Eats, and the Premiere of Guy’s Big Bite

by in Shows, September 9th, 2016

Smollett EatsTune in this weekend for extreme competition and indulgent eats with your favorite Food Network stars. Kick things off on Saturday with back-to-back episodes of Smollett Eats. The siblings are throwing their annual midnight barbecue, and they’re whipping up crowd-pleasing dishes like teriyaki chicken wings and gooey stovetop mac ‘n cheese. Afterward, they’re serving their mom a Southern-style feast to celebrate her New Orleans roots. On the menu: a seafood boil, fried okra and corn-bread.

Then on Sunday, tune in for the premiere of Guy’s Big Bite. Guy Fieri has been all around the world looking for the perfect burger – a juicy, pimento cheese-stuffed patty piled high with fried tomatoes, homemade spicy ranch, bacon and a cabbage slaw – and he’s sharing the secrets for how to make it. Next, head to the Tuscan countryside with Giada De Laurentiis for a big family reunion. There will be a spread full of Northern Italian classics, like octopus panzanella and hazelnut chicken. Then, stop by Bobby Flay’s house where Bobby’s making breakfast sandwiches for brunch, complete with an Israeli-inspired sabich and an eggs-in-a-hole Benedict. Later, things are heating up in Flavortown Market on Guy’s Superstar Games, where the remaining six chefs will team up for one of Guy’s most-terrifying games yet. Next, the four remaining teams on The Great Food Truck Race will battle it out to stay on the road with a challenge involving ostriches. And then on Cooks vs. Cons, will amateur cooks strike out against professional chefs when they’re tasked with incorporating ballpark snacks into a restaurant-worthy dish?

Prepping by Any Means Necessary — Alton’s Camp Cutthroat After-Show

by in Shows, September 7th, 2016

It’s not unusual for Cutthroat Kitchen challenges to demand that chefs think outside the culinary box when it comes to prepping and cooking their dishes while under the burden of sabotages. After all, success in these contests comes to those who are resourceful and willing to go to any lengths necessary to finish the battle — and host Alton Brown did just that tonight.

On the latest installment of the After-Show, following tonight’s Heat 3 of the Camp Cutthroat 2 tournament, he and judge Simon Majumdar found themselves with one hand apiece “locked” in a boulder, just like two chefs were in Round 1 of the episode. That meant that while Simon’s sole remaining hand was left to cook, Alton’s was on hand to prep the cheese, bread and produce he found in his basket, then ultimately turn the ingredients over to Simon. One loaf of bread, one knife and one hand — how to slice in those conditions? If you’re Alton, the answer is simple: Just sit on the bread to keep it still. He indeed perched himself atop the loaf on the prep table, leaving just enough of the bread exposed to make a few slices. And as for that tricky tomato? Gently suspend it between your legs, of course. “This is a very sensitive operation,” Alton joked, taking care to keep the knife away from his exposed knees.
