Two different things making me feel old, 30 Rock, doll collectors, Friendster classics, and more…

Some of my favorite things on the interwebs this week:

  • If you saw last week’s Parks & Rec, you’ll love TomHaverfoods.com
  • This photo of tulip fields in the Netherlands is just too too beautiful (via That Andy Cohen)

  • From XKCD, it’s a movie guide to making other people feel old. It also made me feel old… le sigh.
  • Speaking of feeling old, I have my 10 year high school this weekend. I LOVE going back to Baldwin.

  • Finally, Kelly is getting married, so here’s a special pre-wedding message to her:

Goodbye to @KaitlynWilkins, thoughts on truffle oil, Brazilian car commercials, you know… the usual…

Quickie round up of things I’ve enjoyed this week:

  • My dearest Kaitlyn is moving to London which means I’m officially down a best friend AND my #workbrush will not be going on very many fun adventures. (FYI, KW, have decided when I have some down time, I’m going to re-post the full adventures of my #workbrush here). Anyway, we made her a tribute video. I summarize our entire relationship at 3:00.
  • Amanda Hesser explains why Google SEO is helping to produce lazier home cooks.
  • Nissan mocks Ford in a Brazilian commercial that should be a lesson to all US ad agencies on how to get people to stop fast forwarding. (HT Susannah – who is still not reading my blog for Lent)
  • Serious Eats is giving truffle oil a thumbs down and after reading it, it looks like I’ll have to switch to truffle butter for my ridiculous indulgences.
  • It’s the Real Househusbands of Philadelphia. I have no words and I’m still recovering from the accent.
  • This feature in the New Yorker about the conspiracy around a Guatemalan murder is fascinating.  Please read.
  • Baseball season is back and the Yankees have already had their first three games against the Red Sox. I only watched one of them and it turns out I made the right choice. Anyway, it’s tough to choose between Baldwin and Krasinski, but I think I made the right call. (Hat tip: Married Brother)

Some interesting looks at candy…

I’m kind of obsessed with this gummi bear chandelier from swissmiss:

But even more so with this entire page of Cadbury Creme Egg porn.  Not sure if the photos are SFW, but the sounds I made looking at them definitely weren’t…

David Chang or Anthony Bourdain? Does a girl really have to choose?

So David Chang and my beloved Tony did a joint panel on “bullshit” as part of the New York Food & Wine Festival.  NYMag summed it up beautifully and I’m just going to copy their 10 big takeaways here:

Cupcakes “I hate fuckin’ cupcakes,” said Chang.

San Francisco “Fuckin’ every restaurant in San Francisco is just serving figs on a plate. Do something with your food,” said Chang.

Overexposed Foods Pork bellies are the new tuna tartare, Chang asserted. That said, he passed on answering Bourdain’s question: “Is bacon less cool because Paula Deen likes it, or is it always cool, like Orson Welles?” As for cheeseburgers on a Krispy Kreme doughnut, Bourdain called it “a war crime.”

Guy Fieri Cooking is not about “fuckin’ sunglasses and that stupid fuckin’ armband.” If he ever does that, “throw me down the stairs,” Chang said.

Career-changers Who Want to Start Cooking Professionally at 30 Cooking is “grueling physical labor,” said Chang, adding that he’d never seen anybody start “that late” in life and succeed.

Hell’s Kitchen “They’re shooting the wounded on that show,” said Bourdain. But he defended Top Chef (which he’s appeared on), praised Tom Colicchio and explained, “on that show, the worst chef that day goes home and the best chef that day wins. That’s not bullshit.”

Alice Waters While both men applauded “her message” and Chez Panisse’s game-changing cuisine, Bourdain likened her to a hippie who doesn’t grasp that the poor can’t afford organic milk.

Type A’s who take pictures and notes on the food at Ko. “The food’s getting cold,” Chang observed.

Critic Alan Richman His insistence that celebrity chefs actually cook in their own restaurants is ridiculous, the two concluded. Richman just wants chefs to “kiss his ring,” said Bourdain. “I’m going to Emeril’s restaurant — do I suddenly expect him to pop up and say ‘Bam!’?”

The Biggest Bullshit of All Chang: “Gray Kunz and Christian Delouvrier, the two greatest chefs in New York, are still trying to make a living.”

Some important notes from me: I agree 100% on Guy Fieri, cupcakes, San Francisco, overexposed food, Alice Waters, and Hell’s Kitchen.  I should also add that while I documented my dinner at Ko closely, I a) took no notes and b) took no photos.  Some of us rely on memory (and crowdsourcing to Vero, Eric, and Evan…)

Michael Ruhlman’s son is a genius

I love Michael Ruhlman because of a) his culinary street cred and b) his appearances/travels with my future husband, Anthony Bourdain.

Anyway, apparently his amazing son had the genius idea of: BAKING A CHOCOLATE COOKIE BOWL AND FILLING IT WITH A SUNDAE.

I can only hope that one day my child makes me as proud as Michael Ruhlman must be right now.
