Is Robert Irvine basically Food Network's PC Principal version of Gordon Ramsay?
Ramsay doesn't want anything to do with the cunts at Food Network so they came up with this joke.
STFU DYEL faggot skellington, the man has pretty good aesthetics desu senpai the only thing I'd recommend is more lateral raises, his delts look a little weak in relation to the reset of his physique which is pretty fucking good senpai
manlets, they never learn
He looks like this dude from that movie puppetmaster
Gordon Ramsay has a pretty handful of Michelin stars, and went on TV to ham it up and make even more money, purely as a businessman.
Robert Irvine lied about his credentials to get a show, but people liked him more than the winners of next food network star, so they kept him around.
Maybe it's different if not in catalog mode, I usually have catalog mode on and there the whole post isn't downloaded each time. The filtering as far as it looks is done locally and not on the server so the filter can only work on the text of the first post. That what it looks like anyway.
Eh, I like Robert Irvine, he's got good personality and doesn't mind making fun of himself. Plus he's the only fit chef, kinda tired of everyone being a pillow. Though, he does look like a Norwegian troll.
Also Ramsay is pretty fit, not as much as Roidbert here but still
>being fit means having big muscles
idiot. Ramsay repeatedly runs marathons, swims miles, does biking races, etc. This roidhead probably couldn't do anything that requires a muscle other than biceps
Being fit is a combination of the two, retard. Ramsay has plenty of physique and is still well conditioned. this fag is all glamour muscles and no substance. I'm sure he could curl a fuck ton but ask him to run a 5k or do a clean and he'd flounder
Irvine at least has some semblance of culinary devotion, interest, and experience prior to becoming a food network skizzy, and he carries a little of that through.
I don't really care about anyone on the food network, but if they held more standards like making sure their chefs were actually chefs, I might care a little more about what they do on the channel.
>if they held more standards like making sure their chefs were actually chefs
This is my main problem with FN. They dumb everything down for housewives when all I want to see is actual chefs working the line.
I actually watched a bunch of Hell's kitchen yesterday for the first time, and while I completely understand the criticism it got (scripted, Ramsey obviously hamming it up, etc...), it's actually much more interesting because they are trying to run a real kitchen (despite the fact that all they show is everyone continually fucking up).
It's even better than Iron Chef in that regard; IC and Chopped show almost no actual cooking.
What made people like Julia Child, Alton Brown, or even Emeril great was that they demystified good cooking. They showed people how, through some additional knowledge and skills and a bit of extra work, you could make a dish nearly as well (occasionally even better!) than what you got at a fancy restaurant.
Modern FN does the opposite. Because they no longer try to teach people to cook any way but the lazy, crappy way they're already cooking in the name of "accessibility," they further mystify food. Instead of becoming better at cooking, all they learn is how to cook new but equally mediocre dishes to the ones they're already making, and are therefore still left wondering what makes fancy restaurant food taste so good.
No, it's not. TS is all about that ice bitch's tits and hipster faggotry. The best is MC, any international version and even the US version.
To OP, it's an entertaining and educational program, and Robert's pretty entertaining. I ran into him a couple months ago over a lunch meeting at Liberty Tavern in Arlington VA. Nice chap; he's really cooled off a bit from the years when, even he'd admit, he was a lying braggart.
One of the best things about Julia Child was how no nonsense she was when handling food.
Fuck having everything prepared before you turn on the camera so all you have to do is pour shit into a pan and stir over medium heat, FN style.
That's honestly one of the only things I like about Maangchi; it might not be restaurant tier, but it's like watching someone who grew up cooking for their 10 younger siblings. It honestly demystifies the whole scary idea of cooking. In a real kitchen things are insane, but restaurant food still makes it out of the kitchen.
>dat pose for a picture
God I hate that shit. I don't get why photographers won't just take a picture of me actually working. It looks more real and gives it authenticity instead of making it look like a cheesy cookbook cover.
>Can you hold your knife like you're going to cut the meat?
>How about you sharpen your knife and you look right at the camera?
>Pretend that you're giving your staff orders
The worst one though...
>Can you hold TWO knives and cross them across your chest?
>the worst one though...
>can you hold two knives and cross them across your chest
Read this and then see that exact image with MPW in the next post.
There are good chefs who do promotional shit they know nothing about, and then there are celebrity chefs who are mediocre but know how to ham it up for the camera.
Top Shef? Retard. Well you do enjoy watching cooking competition shows.
Did the meathead tell you about being knighted by the queen, been given a Scottish castle, working for 3 presidents or working on the wedding cake for Diana?
