Things I have learned from the Food Channel

ted | food | Saturday, May 6th, 2006

We watch the Food Channel as the default channel, so it’s on a whole lot.

A & P was the first chain grocery store in the US.
Piggly Wiggly (aka Hoggly Woggly) was the first self-serve grocery store and opened in Memphis TN.
One Rachael Ray show per day is too much. The four in a row last night were way too much.
Alton Brown should lay off the cutesy schtick once in a while and stick to science.
We miss Iron Chef.
Iron Chef America is one of the worst shows ever.
Bobby Flay is still a supreme asshole and cooks the same damn thing over and over.
Mark Summers, OCD master of Double Dare fame, is clearly a robot leased to the Food Network.

If only Rick Bayless was on PBS as much. Selah.

  1. Nice, my aunt and uncle were hardcore food channel addicts for years when they owned their restaurants.

    Now do you know what A&P stands for? And that I passed an 8th grade math test I shouldn’t have because our teacher would give us random +25% bonus trivia questions, one of which was “What does the A and P in A & P stand for?” Apparently he worked there as a stock boy in his youth and used the question every year.
