Rachel Ray Confidential

Anthony Bourdain (chef, author of Kitchen Confidential) is guest blogging at Michael Ruhlman’s (chef, author of The Soul of a Chef) blog. And he’s laying the smackdown on some Food Network personalities. And it’s great.

Anthony Bourdain on Rachel Ray:

Where the saintly Julia Child sought to raise expectations, to enlighten us, make us better–teach us–and in fact, did, Rachael uses her strange and terrible powers to narcotize her public with her hypnotic mantra of Yummo and Evoo and Sammys. “You’re doing just fine. You don’t even have to chop an onion–you can buy it already chopped. Aspire to nothing…Just sit there. Have another Triscuit…Sleep….sleep….”

Okay. That’s enough for now. I’ll actually post something that isn’t just a link regurgitation later in the day. I promise.
