Yeah, what he said

John likes Gonzo Journalism. John Likes Chefs. So obviously John Likes the king of Gonzo-Chefs Anthoney Bourdain. You’ve seen him eat a still-beating cobra heart, and cheered at his vitriol when he speaks of all that is unholy in American consumer-culture cuisine. Now, in a guest-blogging spot at, see him tear-down FoodTV. He has lots of mean and hurtful things to say about all those big-headed Chef-bots on the network that so profoundly blew its promise of teaching American’s how to COOK. My favorite tidbit is what he has to say about the ghastly Rachel Ray:

“Complain all you want. It’s like railing against the pounding surf. She only grows stronger and more powerful. Her ear-shattering tones louder and louder.”

Heed what the man says, he know what he is talking about, and he has nothing but good-things to say about Geek-fav TV Chef Alton Brown. It is too bad that the two of them are on different sides of the food-on-tv divide, because a savvy EP could put together a fantastic “go somewhere and eat stuff” show featuring AB and AB.
