I like Michael Symon as an Iron Chef and I love some of the meals he comes up with on Dinner Impossible, but after the last two episodes I watched, I am not sure he is the best fit for that show.
He got so mad, literally, when he had to do a vegetarian dinner for cowboys (yes, it does seem like a stupid idea), that it seemed for a few moments at the beginning that he wasn't even going to do it.
Then in the next episode he had to cook a meal for 300 Grand Ole Opry fans using the words from Charlie Daniel's classic "The Devil Went Down To Georgia". In the song the devil calls Johnny "chicken". The only chicken in the kitchen was boneless skinless breasts and they didn't have time to go to the store. But Symon's pride got in the way and he preferred to compromise the mission rather than use something HE thought was an inferior, tasteless product.
a) couldn't he have sent someone to the store while they worked on all the other stuff to get some bone in chicken?
b) maybe he doesn't like chicken breast but others do and there is SO much you can do with it.
Sorry, I am probably getting picky and argumentative here, and I will still watch the show, but it just left me a little baffled. I know Chef Irvine would have complained, but he would have made do with what he had.
