Your Favorite Diner Sandwich — Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off

by in Shows, January 22nd, 2013

Rachael vs. GuyOn Sunday’s episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the challenge had the celebrity contestants at Mel’s Drive-In on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. The goal was to reinvent three classic diner sandwiches: the tuna melt, the cheeseburger and the club sandwich. Unfortunately, not everyone lived up to the challenge. The diners found Dean’s and Chilli’s dishes from Team Guy their least favorite. In the end, Chilli was eliminated.

When you think about it, a diner sandwich makes a pretty darn good lunch, especially when you want to satisfy a craving for greasy spoon cuisine. Everyone has his or her favorite sandwich — you may even order the same one every time you visit a diner. FN Dish wants to know, What’s your favorite diner sandwich? Vote in the poll after the jump.

by in Shows, January 9th, 2013

Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri
Rachael vs. GuyOn this past Sunday’s episode of Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, the bottom two celebrity contestants, Kathy and Gilbert, competed in a midnight-snack cook-off to determine who was to go home. Kathy made a hummus that both coaches raved about. Though Gilbert’s second attempt at a peanut butter sandwich was better than the one he made for the dinner theater challenge, it wasn’t good enough to save him.

Which midnight snack do you think is better: Kathy’s hummus with toasted pita chips or Gilbert’s peanut butter and banana sandwich? Vote in the poll after the jump.

VOTE: What Would You Cook for Bobby Flay?

by in Polls, Shows, January 9th, 2013

Bobby's Dinner BattleOn Bobby’s Dinner Battle, Bobby Flay‘s brand-new show premiering Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 10pm/9c, this professional chef and restaurateur visits teams of experienced home cooks across the country. These cooks are challenged to create themed three-course dinner parties to be judged by himself, a special guest and fellow competitors in the ultimate at-home cook-off. While some teams rely on advanced cooking techniques to showcase their star power, others turn out favorite classic recipes, but they all must learn to cope with the pressure of cooking for such a high-profile dinner-party guest as Bobby.

Imagine for a moment that you are one of the home cooks on Bobby’s Dinner Battle. What meal would you serve to such a famed food star, one who’s inevitably enjoyed meals from some of the very best chefs in the country? Would you opt for a no-fail crowd-pleaser that you’ve made countless times, or would you offer him an elegant feast of the finest dishes? Since Bobby is the master of all things barbecue, might you rely on sticky, saucy ribs to win him over? Would you try to impress him with your take on one of his own recipes, or would you simply direct him to your stove and saute pan and politely ask him to cook for you?

The Christmas Meal: What’s Your Family’s Tradition?

by in Family, Holidays, December 18th, 2012

Holiday Dinner PartyThere’s no doubt about it that turkey is synonymous with Thanksgiving. Maybe this year your family ate something other than turkey, like ham, but the bird really does symbolize the holiday no matter how you look at it. But what about Christmas? Is there a food symbolic of Christmas? Not really. Everyone does something different; maybe that’s what is so special about the holiday.

FN Dish wants to know, what do you traditionally serve up around the holidays? Do you repeat the same turkey menu from Thanksgiving? Do you do a British-style prime rib with Yorkshire pudding? Or a Southern glazed ham with biscuits? Or a crown roast of pork or lamb? Every family has its special Christmas meal. What’s yours?

The Next Iron Chef Bromance: Chefs That Plate Together, Win Together?

by in Shows, November 30th, 2012

Spike Mendelsohn and Marcel VigneronSomething unprecedented happened on this past Sunday’s episode of The Next Iron Chef. For the first time in Kitchen Stadium, two chefs chose to plate together, which led to their dishes being judged side by side. Was it a good or bad decision on their part? Did it tarnish the sanctity of the competition?

It’s been evident from the beginning of Season 5 that Chefs Mendelsohn and Vigneron have had an alliance. Episode 4 showed viewers how deep their friendship goes. The two competed against one another in the secret ingredient elimination challenge and made the decision to plate their lobster dishes together. But were they to be judged together, sent home together or allowed to win together? All the rival chefs were up in arms by their actions. Ultimately the judges chose to send home Chef Mendelsohn.

FN Dish wants to know, what would you have done if you were a judge? Do you think what went down in Kitchen Stadium was fair? Would you have liked to have seen both chefs saved? Or would you have eliminated both chefs for their antics?

POLL: Which Team Makes a Better Ball?

by in Shows, September 27th, 2012

meatball vs kimchi rice ball
For the final two teams, Nonna’s Kitchenette and Seoul Sausage, the secret to Food Trucks success has come in the form of balls — meatballs and rice balls, that is. The ladies of Nonna’s have followed their grandmothers’ no-fail recipe for authentic Italian meatballs made with cheese and herbs, while Seoul has cooked up a deep-fried concoction of kimchi, rice and Korean spices.

Both teams’ creations have won rave reviews from customers and judges alike, but we want to know which dish you’d most like to taste. Do you think that the saucy, beefy meatballs from Nonna’s would be the best bite, or would you prefer the flavors of Korea nestled inside a crispy, crunchy coating?

Tune in to the Season 3 finale of The Great Food Truck Race on Sunday night at 9pm/8c to find out whether Nonna’s Kitchenette or Seoul Sausage will keep their keys.

POLL: Which Team’s Picnic Lunch Would You Pack?

by in Polls, Shows, September 20th, 2012

The Great Food Truck Race
Much like the Truck Stop challenge in the second Food Trucks episode that tasked the teams with embracing regional ingredients, last Sunday’s cooking challenge was a celebration of Nashville’s local cuisine. The remaining four food trucks had just $100 and 60 minutes to prepare a Southern-style picnic lunch for two people who know a thing or two about Tennessee comfort food: country music stars Joey and Rory Feek.

A few teams chose to prepare classic takes on tried-and-true dishes, while others let their culinary points of view shine in creative twists on original recipes. Take another peek at what Momma’s Grizzly Grub, Seoul Sausage, Pop-A-Waffle and Nonna’s Kitchenette served to Joey, Rory and Tyler, then tell us which of their plates you’d pack on a picnic.
