I was watching one of those cooking shows that features high class type chefs. One thing that i saw that drives me absolutely nuts is, they will chop up something and then only use HALF of what they chopped up! Why cut that much up if you are only going to use half?!
Also another thing, the Chefs they show that hail from Hawaii always talk about how great “Hawaiian” food is. Uh hello? I always thought that was like a tropical variation on Euro-Asian (One of the greatest of sins was combining Lumpia (eggrolls) with a berre blanc sauce (Sp?). Anyway, the cool chefs are those who actually were born and raised in Hawaii. One was telling us that we didn’t need all of these specialty “Hawaiian” foods, and that we could substitute (i like that!). Something the other snobby chefs never do. Ugh! Anyway i had to get that off of my chest!
