    I got this in an email and had to check it since it was posted for April fools day...but it is apparently going on, and I'm quite excited.

    Whoever uses schmaltz in theirs should get extra points for that.

        Hope it is better then the Dinner Impossible Pesach episode. Hey, you think Flay uses chilies in his matzah balls?

                    I don't get it. Whenever Bobby tries to be innovative and strays from a traditional recipe, the person whom he challenges wins since they usually make the standard traditional version of the dish. Bobby is often praised for his non-traditional variation, but at the same time criticized for not being traditional. His chicken/matzoh ball soup to me was more traditional and "Jewish" than Jeff Nathan's (except for the jalapeno kick to the broth) and Jeff's could have easily been confused for Bobby's with the use of his soffrito. Who knows how these things turn out. Was a little surprised considering the traditional nature of the judges.

                    Thanks K.H. Are there any movie endings you would like to spoil?

                      I found this online, for those who don't have The Food Network.

              I personally would not have liked Jeff's soup for Pesach. Holiday foods in our family are sacrosanct and we work hard to re-create Mom & Bubbie's recipes. OTOH, Jeff was surprised and perhaps his would have been more traditional if he had advance notice.

              Watch him occasionally on PBS and find his show interesting. The FN show proved he is better without the PBS entourage of JAP women and clueless male friends appearing with him there.

                watch the pbs show as well some times and i find him really annoying, which is aggravating, bc i love his food and his cookbook

                i agree abt the soup though, there should be no tomato or red pepper in a chicken soup, thats crazy talk
