"The Man Food Show" 1st Aired 1-28-04

Postby mojopox » Wed Jan 28, 2004 4:16 pm

Alton sweet talks the ladies into leaving the room so just "us" men can talk about making our woman breakfast in bed. once the women are gone alton pulls a beer out of the oj container and gets busy talking about man food.


i voted classic. i will definantly be making both of those recipes. i now have another excuse for pulling out my griddle. although, i was expecting the guy that knew everything about good eats and alton to show up in the store. what ever happened to that? wasn't it supposed to be continued? i was good to see paul again also. oh and what are we supposed to do if our wife really did leave the room and is expecting breakfast in bed along with fresh flowers and origami?

Just saw it, thought it was classic. From the ferris wheel ride to the grill to getting the women out of there. Lots of info and lots of fun.

Very informative and freakin' hilarious. I loved he way he kept suckin' up to the female viewers and when they "gone" doing something naughty.

I have often though about AB handling his.. no, better not.

It was a good show, not a whole lot of ideas I will use though. It did explain why my deep fryer has that stupid magnetic cord that falls off everytime I move it. My outlets are on the wall behind the counter. I couldnt trip on it unless I was 10" tall and walking under the cabinets. Besides, it's like 18" long. A little overboard on the safety if you ask me. I had to laugh when he said to cut the ground beef into even squares when his were more like uneven trapazoids.

It was good, but I thought it was missing something. Greatly entertaining, as usual, but the "recipes" were predicated on special & expensive equipment, which is kind of contradictory to AB's philosophy. And when there is special equipment, I really miss W.

I loved this show. :D Especialy since AB's "Man Food" is really everyMAN's food. Like he really thought that the women would leave the room. If we left how would we get to see AB :wink:

Although some what "manly" in demeanor, wouldn't the presense of W on the "man food show" be somewhat incongruous?

Yeah, the beer in the OJ was good.
I looked at those burgers and said D'OH!! They're perfect for me. I will do that when I make burgers. I've only heard of White Castle & sliders. Seen 'em in the freezer section, but no thanks! It'll be mini-burgers in a cast iron skillet for me.

It was a really good show. The bit about getting the women to leave was just to make sure they wouldn't. This was Mr. Brown's deliciously perverse sense of humor at it's very best.

I loved it! I chuckled through most of it. I loved the part about getting the girls out of the room. As if I was going to walk away from the tv when AB was on!

Strangely enough, when it first aired, my baby started crying and I DID leave the room as AB instructed. My husband stayed to watch the episode alone.

Are y'all implying I SHOULDN'T be expecting breakfast this weekend? :shock: :cry: :cry:

Does anyone know who makes the deep fryer from this episode? Also where is the best place to purchase it?

Thanks in advance,

I saw one at Linens "N" Things the other day if that helps. The wife has a bug in her ear for my birthday coming up soon.

I gave it a "classic" vote, solely on account of the thing about teaching guys how to make breakfasts in bed for the ladies. Brilliant. The acting in the final scene is done to a turn. Next time you watch it, look for the part when he's on his knees, snipping flowers for a "beautiful morning bouquet", and bidding farewell. The suave delivery of the line "See you next time... on Good Eats" is pure genius. The guy can really act.

I didn't find the food in this episode terribly inspiring; I think other episodes (e.g. Raising the Steaks or Grill Seekers) can make stronger claims to being the manly food episode.

But I have to admit that ever since watching this show, I've been lusting after that fun-looking deep fryer, and trying to come up with some justification for buying it. "On the one hand I don't usually eat much fried stuff... On the other hand, maybe I would if it was perfectly done..." The griddle would be fun to, but I'd have to build an addition to my kitchen before I can even consider it.

I noticed that AB has a curious speech quirk: he says "greazy" instead of "greasy".

I also noticed that AB has put on a fair bit of weight. Whether this weight is fat or muscle I can't tell, but he looked totally barrel-chested in this episode, especially in the scene right after Father and Son walk off to pay for the Son's first griddle. Maybe he's been doing some righteous bench pressing. He was definitely looking the part of the Man Food Show's host.

Call me picky, but the only thing I dislike about AB is the greazzzy thing. I have no idea why it bugs me, but it just irritates the heck out of me every time he says it.

Maybe I need professional help :wink:

Am I the only one that got bothered by the fact that the guy with one of the greatest collection of rolling pins used a wine bottle to roll out his ground beef?

There are a few words that he pronounces strangely. The one that always bugs me is soh'ey sauce (or beans).

I think most of us probably have quirks like that. It annoys my son the way I say uhm'brella, and I chuckle whenever I hear my dad say veee'hicle.
