In Other Words

Surely, we've all got those other blogs out there that we just can't help stopping by for a look-see as often as we can.

And one such blog which is such a favorite ofmine that I never miss an entry is Superchef. It's published by Juliette Rossant, the original "Celebrity Chefs" columnist of Forbes magazine and author of Super Chef: The Making Of The Great Modern Restaurant Empires, which is a in-depth and insightful look at the makings of some of the world's best chefs (male and female) and the story behind their celebrity. Yes, I've read the book too -- and loved it.

As for her blog, I usually try to catch it blog on a daily basis, and today's entry is so spot-on regarding my own assessments of the new Fox series Hell's Kitchen and it's drill-sergeant culinary taskmaster, Gordon Ramsay. Juliette basically say it all here , so I'll just leave it to her words on this one. Another great entry to this blog was a recent one on the Food Networks' new (female) Iron Chef, Cat Cora. And yes, I do agree that this was a seriously * wise* move on the part of the producers of this cooking showcase, with master chef, Cora, certainly capable of handling this new title that has been bestowed upon her.

No doubt, with all the recent idiocy afoot with people with seemingly NOTHING better to do than surfing through blogosphere for the purpose of "trashing" what bloggers have to say, the flip side of this clearly indicates that this surfing time could also be put to time far better spent.

Way to go, Juliette! Terrific blog, and please do keep your thoughts and insights on the culinary world coming for all of us who are interested in what you have to say.
