Japanese variety shows and BS go together like bacon and eggs! Trust me -- I love Japan, but Iron Chef is actually on the "low" end of the gimmick spectrum!


That having been said, last cooking show I was ever interested in was "Come and Get it" back in the '80s. When I was a kid.

Sushi is brilliant. I still love Takoyaki, and miss really good Oden or Amazake in wintertime. (The stuff they used to sell at Matsuyama Castle each new year was super-nummy.) I copied a screen-cap too of Hoshi Sato's oden recipe (from the Enterprise ep. "Singularity") and plan to make it one day. With a few variations tho' because some of the veggies in it are icky i.m.o.

Salmon and king prawns, any day. Kikkomen sauce.


OJO! Your fault!

Bizarre foods with Andrew Zimmerman. Some of the foods look good actually except when he has this male organ meat fetish or something.  That guy really loves his stir fried balls.

Oh! Oh! I have seen a few episodes of that! ^.^ The boyfriend DVRs it. Sometimes, i think...if the people just served the stuff to me, i might be able to eat it- so long as they didn't tell me what it was til AFTERWARD. That's how I have to explore new food. LOL


 


I think he has a fat fetish. He's always going on and on about the texture of fat dishes...when I accidentally get a piece of fat, it makes me yack. I hate the texture of it.

LOL. Kikkoman is a bit too strong and salty for me. --I think it might be designed primarily for Chinese food-- I prefer the milder soy-sauce (like what you get with sushi in those little fish-shaped dispensers.)


mmmmmmmm. Amazake -- nomitai........

I quite like those little areas of fat that you find in the middle of some steaks and like the fat that is on the outside edge of some T-bones and rumps and expecially like the crispy fat on the outside of a nice piece of lamb, love the taste of BBQ or roasted chicken/turkey/duck skin, and the crackling on the outside of piece of roast pork is to kill for.

The more marbleling in the beef or lamb cut the better.

I like to watch  shows where a chef visits other countries and explores the home cooking and traditional foods he finds there. I just wish TV's could give us the smells of the cooking processes and of the cooked foods as well the full HD images of these.


 


I'm a texture person...certain textures just trigger the gag reflex, whether I like the taste or not and fat is one of them. Although, with fat, it could also be psychological because I'm extremely conscious of my weight.


 


There's another show that Ramsey does that I've seen a few times...but I can't remember the name of it. I remember the letters 'HK' being prominent, though and I have a friend that works on the wi-fi network of the show. I just fail with TV. But, i remember the few eps I've seen of it being interesting.

Hell's Kitchen! That's it!


 


I've got a nice foul mouth on me, too...so, the cussing doesn't bother me. But, in the episodes of Kitchen Nightmares that I've seen...those owners NEED to be told what he tells them. Most of them are so far up their own asses and refuse to believe the failing kitchen is their fault. I work in a place with the same sort of concept...so the show is a bit cathartic for me.

True for the most part. And kikkoman sauce is still good. It doesn't go very well with Japanese food, though -- because it is not very "subtle" in its taste.

I wouldn't worry about fat too much. Not all fat is bad for you. The fats from fish, nuts and some vegetables like olives and coconuts are actually quite good for you. All you really have to do is stick to eating foods with no labeling and if possible organic and wild. Those are high in the priority list and are every day foods. Foods made in factories and fast food should be eating minimally.
So long as you eat the right foods and get moving every day you should be all right and in the right direction.


Its common sense stuff only not every one pay's attention to common sense.
