Alex Guarnaschelli poster girl for I Can't Believe It's not Butter
Alex Guarnaschelli is now plugging a butter substitute:
Is this this the same Alex Guarnaschelli who is the executive chef at Butter? (Hmm...maybe now the place will called I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.)
Is this the same Alex Guarnaschelli who shoots chefs dirty looks when they don't use good enough ingredients on Chopped?
Is this the same Alex Guarnaschelli who gushed in a recent interview how much she adored Kerry Gold butter because of its rich flavor and deliciousness?
Why yes it is.
Guess Kerry Gold didn't make her a deal.
The photo of her in the link--it either looks like she has lost a lot of weight, or the pic was taken at a very weight-flattering photo. Maybe she is using this stuff at home. Either way, she has to be a better spokesperson than Megan Mullalley doing that dumb dance in the grocery store.
I'm sorry but if I were the owner of Butter, I would immediately dismiss her. That is an absolute embarrassment to the restaurant. It's a slap in the face to the title of their business and the ethos of their food. Doesn't matter if it was just a one off event or what not, you don't disrespect your employer like that.
