Foodie News - Farmageddon - January 9th
I wanted to give you a quick heads up regarding this Sunday’s “Farmageddon” episode of Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America as it relates to using farm fresh ingredients. Since farm-to-table, nose-to-tail, the importance of shopping at local Greenmarkets, and the overall theme of supporting local farms are timely and important topics, I thought you would like to tune-in and check out this week’s competition.
If you haven't yet watched an episode of Food Network's Worst Cooks in America, tune-in and be prepare to be amazed. One contestant actually gave her family food poisoning - twice! One was unsure of how much olive oil to use in a skillet - I cringed as it looked like she was going to deep fry an omelet! Chefs Anne and Robert have a hard road ahead, but it definitely makes for good entertainment.
Premiering Sunday, January 9th at 9pm ET/PT
Awakened by a live chicken in their penthouse, the 14 remaining recruits take a field trip to a farm where Chefs Anne and Robert challenge them to prepare the perfect omelet for their Skill Drill. Back at Boot Camp, in the Main Dish Challenge, both chefs demonstrate a pork dish, and each recruit participates in a step of the demo. Halfway through prep, the chefs surprise the recruits by taking away their notebooks. To finish the task, the recruits must rely on their own memory and each other. After mixed results, the two worst cooks are eliminated.
