The fourth episode of Worst Cooks in America had the remaining recruits tackling some of America’s favorite dishes in a quintessential atmosphere — a New Jersey diner. Diners have been a part of American history since the late 1800s and often resemble a mobile home. Known for offering a wide variety of dishes like French fries, nachos, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken fingers and milk shakes, diners are a casual place to grab a bite to eat.

This week, Bobby and Anne tasked their teams with making two of those dishes: French fries for Team Anne and nachos for Team Bobby. Each team was shown the basics of frying and then they were asked to reinvent the classes with creative toppings.

Members from Team Anne aced the creativity portion of their test, creating sauces, guacamole and frying up eggs, but many of them had an issue with cooking the fry perfectly. According to Anne, all French fries should be double-fried; watch this video to learn how to cook French fries perfectly.

Off the Hook Sighting

Culinary star, Guy Fieri was hanging in the home office last week. Despite a hectic schedule of meetings, events and obligations, Guy took time for each and every fan on his way up to the FN offices.

The cool part was that aside from the fans you would expect, Guy drew a bunch that you wouldn’t – namely kids and teens. Move over, Miley — sorry, Jonas Brothers… Rock star chefs like Guy seem to be resonating with a younger, hungry audience.

And if you can’t get enough of Guy, new episodes of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, are back. Get the full D, D & D details here.
