I was able to catch a classic Good Deal rerun on FN with Dave making some baked bolognese and other pasta dishes (all of which are in his latest cookbook).
He was still a little rough in this episode...fumbling his lines and such, but I really think he could have had (and I guess still could have) a great television cooking show if the time was right. Oh wellllllll.
I also randomly caught Mario Batali's segment on the Martha show. I never watch her show, but was excited to see him on.
His demo was effortless but not lethargic. He was able to teach simple cooking lessons without being pedantic. Yes, he did throw in some big, multisyllabic words here and there, but they weren't overdone.
And that's not just because I've eaten chipirones en su tinta (squid cooked in its own ink) while in Bilbao, España.
Have a great day off (If you have it off) everyone!
