She's smart. I think he's played out on FN but there are still a lot of tunes left in an old violin.

Those late night/3:00 AM reruns of Alton Brown. Still learn things. I wish they would back out all the preps for Iron Chef. I'd really like to SEE each step of using those small pressure cookers, for instance. Congratulations to Emeril and Martha. Never thought watching grandma cook would bring ya $45 million. All those long days on cement floors and at Commander's Palace served you well.

Rick Bayless' weird, halting speech pattern makes me insane.
He talks like he's stoned. It used to bug me. Now I just imagine he's high, and that makes me a little more tolerant of it.

 

Someone here compared him to Carole Channing.

Works for me.

 

Huh, Carole Channing. There's something in that.

 

To me he's always sounded like a cross between Vincent Price and Peter Lorre with maybe just a spramp of Boris Karloff.
