by in Shows, January 31st, 2016

Red TeamThis season on Worst Cooks in America, 14 new hapless home cooks have joined the ranks to be mentored by chefs Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell. Split into the Blue Team and the Red Team, the recruits face new cooking challenges every week, gathering new cooking skills until just two finalists remain to face off in the last cook-off. That winner will walk away with $25,000 in cash, and his or her mentor will win bragging rights. Unfortunately, every week the two lowest-scoring recruits will be kicked out of Boot Camp. They lose the chance to win the prize money, but they leave with new skills learned from their mentors.

Every Sunday night, FN Dish has the exclusive interviews with the eliminated recruits, one from the Red Team and one from the Blue Team.

Super Snack Sticks: 3 Ways to Skewer Your Big-Game Eats

by in Recipes, Shows, January 30th, 2016

Tacobab al PastorThough it takes just three essentials — beer, snacks and a TV — to host a winning game-day bash, each element of this at-home-tailgating trifecta is important, especially when it comes to the spread you cook up for your guests. The key to any successful big-game menu is remembering that, above all else, each item ought to be easy to eat, ideally with just your hands. After all, on game day no one wants to put down the coveted remote to reach for a fork and knife. Dips, nachos, wings and pizza are surely go-to picks, but when you want to upgrade your menu with dressed-up eats — while keeping the prep work easy, of course — the name of the game is skewers. On this morning’s all-new episode of The Kitchen, the co-hosts introduced three recipes showcasing skewers that allow for fuss-free munching. See how they showcase tacos, a meatball sub and even pasta salad, which usually requires utensils, on a stick.

Part kebab and part taco, Marcela Valladolid’s Tacobab al Pastor celebrates the sweet and savory flavors of traditional tacos al pastor. Just like the tried-and-true dish, this one brings together smoky chipotle in adobo sauce, tender pork and juicy pineapple. Since these fixings are cooked together on skewers, there’s no need to prep multiple components separately. Round out the snack with a cool avocado-cilantro crema.

Flatbread Prep Goes Flat — Alton’s After-Show

by in Shows, January 24th, 2016

It’s not uncommon for Cutthroat Kitchen sabotages to throw competitors off their A-game, but one challenge in particular knocked them off their feet tonight — literally. Ever a fan of culinary puns, host Alton Brown auctioned off a sabotage that challenged two chefs to prep flatbread as they laid flat on their backs. In theory the execution seems simple: Just use your hands to feel, right? But what happens when it comes time to roll out the dough or chop ingredients? Simon Majumdar learned these lessons the hard way tonight, when he experienced the challenge firsthand during the latest installment of the After-Show as he was challenged to make flatbread.

“Chapati is a wheat-flour Indian bread,” Simon explained of the dish he set out to make, though in true Cutthroat fashion, he wasn’t allowed to prep it in a straightforward manner. Enter the flat-top prep table. “I want you to experience this the way that the competitors had to,” Alton told Simon. “So just hop up on here and lay flat.” While Simon managed to roll out his dough on a block atop his torso and ultimately move it to the stove, he dodged slicing duties, thanks to Alton. The host took over chopping the cucumber for Simon’s raita — and once again Simon’s midsection proved to be a worthwhile prep area, and Alton set up another cutting board there so the judge could lie down. “Lay still now. This knife is sharp. I’ve never cut on a moving surface like this, and I could slip,” Alton joked as he maneuvered the knife just inches from Simon’s face.

Stuffed: The Best Way to Transform Chicken Breasts

by in Recipes, Shows, January 23rd, 2016

Sunny's Ham and Cheese Stuffed Chicken BreastsJust last week The Kitchen introduced two all-new spins on easy-to-cook, economical chicken thighs, but today it’s all about that dark meat’s counterpart: the chicken breast. This go-to cut of meat is a familiar family favorite, but once you’ve run through your arsenal of recipes for baked, breaded and fried chicken breasts, you’ll likely be craving something new. That’s where these two new recipes come in. All it takes to transform the chicken breasts you know and love is to stuff them with some of your favorite flavors and ingredients. Check out how Geoffrey Zakarian and Sunny Anderson do it with their recipes below.

Chicken cordon bleu may sound like a fancy entree, but all there is to it is rolling up ham and Swiss inside lean chicken breasts. Follow Sunny’s recipe for Ham and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts to learn how; this easy-to-make dinner can be on the table in just 25 minutes, and when you slice into it, the gooey Swiss will be oozing out of the crispy breaded chicken in the most-decadent way.
