What Alex Guarnaschelli Ate Last Week

Alex Guarnaschelli was recently featured in an awesome New York Mag/Grub Street piece in which she describes some of the yummy things she ate all week. I love the way she describes food: "I ate chicken-liver crostini, a roasted chicken with fennel, and a huge — like ridiculously, embarrassingly huge — homemade apple tart, which was just shy of pornographic."

You can really tell she knows food and understands flavors' intricacies.

But she's not afraid to talk about her imperfections:
"I make a really crappy omelet. I shouldn’t say crappy. I always start out with the intention of making a beautiful omelet and it always tastes good but it doesn’t always look so pretty. Nine times out of ten I will turn an omelet into a scramble at the last minute and pretend like that’s what I always set out to make."

Advice on acting domestic:
"I have a friend in from out of town and I wanted to pretend to be domestic. The best way to do that is to turn the oven on and put something with cinnamon in it in the oven."


I'm still debating whether I should go out and get my free Starbucks for voting this morning. I might need the caffeine if this things goes on all night. Hope everyone's holding out all right!

Hi jacob! I finally got a chance to watch Alex's show last week and I thought it was pretty good. You can't go wrong with chocolate. ~ Robyn

Alex is the best. i read somewhere that Alton Brown said she was his favorite Iron Chef America judge because of her uniquely descriptive language and enthusiasm. I agree! She's my new favorite on FN.

Alex is as lovely in person as she is on television.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one whose omelets always end up as scrambled eggs. ;-)

I finally caught the show this past weekend. Pretty nice and low-key. However, I thought the chocolate cake looked like a kid's mud pie. But I did like the style of the show -- nice and low-key.

Love Alex and her new show. She is a down to earth chef and seems like she would be fun to hang out with.

Loved the chocolate show. I was having a bad morning and that show just made my day, yum!

Mine do too anon @ 4:17pm. Nice to know even someone like Alex who is an accomplished chef ends up making scrambles lol...it tastes the same no matter how you plate it anyways. And yeah her show is really good.

Let's hope she remains humble and doesn't go the Giada eye rolling route when judging any FN contest.

Only time will tell I guess.

I love Alex. She is a wonderful teacher besides being a great chef. I would love to get to her restaurant, Butter, one day!
