I know what you’re thinking: My pancake batter isn’t as stunningly extreme as I’d like it to be. How can I amp up the crazy on the next batch? May we suggest a custom Guy Fieri mixer?
Designed by Nicole Dinardo for Un Amore, and cobbled together with hair gel and bacon grease (we guess), this mixer is strictly for serious Guy’s American Bar & Grill fans. Sadly, though, it’s one-of-a-kind, which means that if you want a mixer that’ll get you on the bus to Flavortown, you’ll likely have to make own Fieri-inflamed designs. [Un Amore]
This video from Brooklyn’s Late Night Basement happens to be situated right at the intersection of my two favorite things: making fun of batter-dipped fried cheese nugget Guy Fieri and ridiculing the ironic hipster underbelly of Brooklyn. Intrepid reporter Chris Rose interviews the bespeckled and be-skinny jeans wearing Williamsburglars about a (fake) impending Guy Fieri chain restaurant. You could almost imagine Fieri serving up nacho cheese-fed foie gras and “factory farm to table” food, right? And Vampire Weekend as investors? Of course. [YouTube]
Guy Fieri’s American Kitchen & Bar has had its problems. But grillmaster and flamed shirt fan Guy Fieri couldn’t have imagine the trouble he’d have after failing to buy the URL for his restaurant. Instead, hilarious Pauline Vassiliadis (an out of work writer) bought the URL and created a fake but-all-too-real version of his menu. (Click here for larger image.) There’s the Hobo Lobo Bordello Slam Jam appetizer plate, consisting of “38 ounces of super-saddened, Cheez-gutted wolf meat” garnished with “thick & funky Mushroom Dribblins.” Or the Panamania entree: “Deep fried snake with a printed out picture of David Lee Roth stapled on it and a sparkle sticking out of each eye.” And they didn’t skimp on sides, either. You can get fries “cooked with absolutely no mercy” or the Olive Garden, which is “22 pounds of wine-stunned Kalamata olives tumbled over iceberg lettuce. Ranch hose optional.”
It’s making me so hungry, really. [Guy's American Kitchen & Bar]
Have you been catching those commercials for the new Food Network show “Chef Wanted”? The show stars chef Anne Burrell as a Gordon Ramsey-esque totalitarian attempting to whip a bunch of amateur chefs into shape. Will we watch it? Maybe, because who doesn’t love watching a bunch of grown ass adults be belittled by someone? That’s a foundational element to reality TV. But in the meantime, I believe I’ve unlocked the keys to the Food Network Kingdom: Blonde spikey hair. Consider, if you will, Burrell, along with Supreme Yeller Gordon Ramsey and Fire-themed Clothing Fanatic Guy Fieri. Too much of a coincidence for my brain. Keep reading »
Guy Fieri is having a bad few months. First, his new Times Square restaurant gets the total gasface from The New York Times. And now, news comes out that his frozen S’mores Indoors Pizza is a flavor abomination. The dessert pizza claims to be made with “sweet graham cracker crust, rich melted chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips and melted marshmallows.” But! The packaging neglects to mention the pizza’s secret ingredient, which is apparently cayenne pepper. Oh yeah, somehow a bunch of spicy crap got mixed in with this seemingly sweet recipe, and consumers are angry. The Sam’s Club comment page for the S’mores Indoors pizza is blowing up with major pizza drama as consumers rally against the surprisingly spicy ‘za. Keep reading »
