Tonight's Hell's Kitchen challenge: reinventing classic "American" dishes!!
That episode of Tof Chef where Micah was so insulting to Americans and their fondness for ketchup and yet her meatloaf was un-eatable: reinventing classic "American" dishes!!
Bonnie's assignment: reinvent franks and beans:
Lia's assignment: reinvent franks and beans (poorly, might I add. I would suggest: Tofurkey's beer brats or kielbasa -- mmm, "logs of chewy soy protein!" instead. or even smartpups! tofu dogs, i tell you!)
(I mean, dude, she just bought sausage and then she undercooked some lentils! Boring, Lia, boring!!
And, oh, see: poor Bonnie has never eaten franks-and-beans because she is a WASP.
Anyway. I must go eat my dinner (yes, I watch all my TV timeshifted) -- sauteed seitan over organic greens! reinvent THAT, suckas -- but apparently it is the season of the reinvention of classic "American" dishes!!
THE SEASON OF THE REINVENTION OF CLASSIC "AMERICAN" DISHES HAS ARRIVED!
I thus proclaim. Look for these reinvention-themed restaurants to crop up everywhere! WE ARE A NATION AT WAR and we are STARVING FOR COMFORT FOOD.
Catch the meme today.
But we're also not about to eat transfats. So, meme-spreaders, I ask of you only this: for the love of all things tasty and delicious, reinvent classic "American" dishes and serve 'em to the sheeple. For we are weary, depressed and in need of starch.
