Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

The person that started this ball to rolling and giving the statement that the reason the black cooking shows are not working is the lack of personality and the lack of focus? That is an utter copout and a racist statement. Let's be perfectly honest the hear. We (meaning African-Amercians) taught white people how to cook. Since the beginning of the slave era, we did all of the cooking for white people. This is yet another example of how they have taken something from someone else to make their profit, nothing more and nothing less. So, to constantly say that nothing positive comes from and African-American (and that's pretty much what you've said) is the worse anyone could ever say or believe.

Re: “Three questions with Ed Currie, creator of the world's hottest pepper

The back story of the Carolina Reaper pepper continues to change with each interview I read. In one article, Ed Currie was trying to create a sweet pepper. In another, it was an accidental discovery. In another, he was using special cross pollination methods normally reserved for beans. Other accounts say he learned his craft while growing super high powered Marijuana. Now, he planned it all along since 1981.

Re: “CLT Coffee Crawl is not your typical mug shot

There's a national traveling Caffeine Crawl that has been around a few years. I believe they've had a Crawl in Boston, but most are Midwest and West Coast. - Chris

Re: “Eat With Your Dollars: Chocolate

I just read this article. I am completely baffled. I buy Theo dark chocolate because it's Organic and Fair Trade. This study makes it look like the ugly giants (Mars, Hershey, Kraft!!!!) do it better, producing chocolate with no lead or cadmium. Confusing!

Re: “Banana pudding fail ... again

I would say the brown sugar in your recipe might be the cause of the color. I only use brown sugar in butterscotch pudding.. I still can't figure out the grainy unless its the salt or the flour but I sifted mine it still turned out grainy.. I didn't use evaporated milk because its too rich I used whole milk and heavy whipping cream which I thought would get rid of the grainy but no such luck.. I am totally stumped.

Re: “Banana pudding fail ... again

You and I are having the same problem. My pudding did not turn out brown but it is grainy beats me .. I have tried and tried and I know there is a secret somewhere.. but no one is sharing that secret. LOL

Re: “Three questions with chef Jay Pierce of soon-to-open ROCKSalt

If there is anyone that I admire as chef is Chef pierce. Working under him at emerils was like working with family on a sunday dinner where every one gathers for the smell of good and flavorful food. I think he is doing a awesome job at what he does best. If anyone who wants to learn about cooking learn from chef pierce he will take the time to educate and motivate and inspire to keep moving foward. His favorite thing i always heard him say is "work smart not hard" now hearing him open up Rock Salt its a very great thing to hear ! I learn to keep my composure from him when the pressure in the kitchen gets heavy. Now me years later being a General/Kitchen manager playing multi roles at one of the upcoming restaruants Graffit junktion it motivates me more from hearing chef Pierce success to go even harder to achieve my goals of opening a restaurant. Great job Chef pierce! Hope to come see your restauraunt and eat delicious food.
