This Father’s Day weekend, Food Network has new episodes geared toward the guys. First, Paula is cooking “dad food” with her son Jamie. Then Ree is cooking breakfast and lunch for her cowboys. Then Trisha is making “manly” food for her husband, Garth, and his two buddies. Afterward, Giada is making a special dinner for her husband, Todd. Then on Sunday, Guy is in the kitchen with his two sons, nephew and dad. And Jeff is taking a stroll down memory lane with his dad.
Right after, watch the season premiere of Bobby Flay’s Barbecue Addiction. Bobby is preparing a Mexican feast with bold flavors. And on Sunday evening, it’s a special night of Chopped (also, don’t forget to watch the After Hours episode online right after the show). On Food Network Star, the 10 remaining contestants get put through a Chopped challenge judged by Alex Guarnaschelli. And last, it’s Robert Irvine to the rescue on a new episode of Restaurant: Impossible.

Try a new take on sangria this summer: sparkling red wine poured over fruit sorbet. You can prepare it in about 30 seconds — no fruit chopping required. For these, we paired lambrusco (sparkling Italian red wine) with scoops of lemon, peach and orange sorbets. Try your own flavor combo or just drink the lambrusco by itself: It’s the perfect wine for a cookout.

After watching Damaris Phillips
‘ premiere performance last week, judge-mentor Bobby Flay had but one piece of advice for her: “Don’t try to seduce us.” It appeared as though she took that instruction to heart, but, unfortunately she let history repeat itself this week during the Burger Bash challenge, and it almost forced her week-two elimination.
Not long into her live cooking demonstration in front of the Selection Committee and an audience of 100 guests, Damaris once again resorted to uncomfortably suggestive body language as she described a key ingredient in her dish. She revealed duck fat to be the must-have addition to her pimento cheese burger, and she accompanied the announcement with a shoulder shake and shimmy that left the audience both grimacing and laughing — “at her,” no less, according to Alton Brown.
Damaris realized almost immediately the mistake she’d made, explaining, “When I get nervous, I default to being awkwardly sexy sometimes.” Come evaluation, she knew she’d be in for harsh feedback: “My presentation was crap. I went up there and did exactly what the Selection Committee told me not to do.” Bobby indeed doled out hard-to-hear criticisms, among them that her demonstration was “a little off-putting,” and Damaris was simply unable to hold back tears in front of her peers and the mentors.

I must confess: I’ve never been much of a hot dog person. At a tailgate or poolside, I’ll happily indulge. But when scouring the Internet for new recipes, franks are not usually on my radar. At least, that used to be the case.
There has been a lot of buzz around hot dogs during the last couple years, and the momentum hasn’t stopped. Not just for game day anymore, the popular American finger food has become trendy and edgy, pushing past traditional ketchup and mustard to embrace new and bolder toppings. Hot dogs are popping up on menus worldwide and taking over magazine spreads; the question is whether they’re worth the hype. I may have been a skeptic before, but after making Brooklyn’s Corniest Hot Dog, I am a firm believer. Corn and caramelized onions are a match made in heaven. Add bacon, and now we’re really cooking. Needless to say, this recipe was a winner.
