I feel the same vibes from him.....not my cup of tea.

it's the holier-than-thou arrogance. i don't like people like that in real life and i don't like them on tv.

And all the time I thought it was just me. He does seem arrogant and condescending. His attitude is what bothers most people. I had a visitor to my house comment on it just last night. I didn't even know my freind watched any food-tv.

Mario I dont mind though since he has a certain charisma. People who are like that can be fun in the right context but people like Bobby have few redeeming qualities besides his cooking, which is highly debatable.

Mario seems 'uppity' because he's so very particular about the authenticity of his ingredients and recipes. Otherwise, he's a hoot!

I've worked with Rick Bayless, who's a real sweetie, but some folks think he's 'uppity' because of his opinions on doing things the right way, and again, the authenticity of his recipes.

Bobby Flay, on the other hand - well, let's just say he's a little Irish street kid from NY who got a few too many kudos and took it all a bit too seriously.

It is sooooooo good! His cookbooks are very easy to follow; try one! If I can find it, I'll post a recipe in 'vegetables' for a potato and poblano taco that rocks!

My sister who (like me) was born and raised mexican but unlike me is also a profesional chef (mostly chocolateur) went to Bayles restaurant "topolobampo" in chicago and was disapointed, sending back two of the dishes (some gummy and tough "fried shrimp" and a lamb dish that was packed with silver skin). She was very disapointed and didint consider the "chef taster" course worthwhile.

I watched a couple of episodes of "boy meets grill" with bobby flay and MAN he likes to talk about stuff he dosent know about and drop absolutely embarrasing chunks of spanish trying to say that he's "totally latin in his heart". Also he will put chipotle in his tea if you imply it would taste good... the guy has no sense of taste. Seriosly if I ever do a cameo on that show I'll see to bobby giving that nice grill a little kiss.
