One of my brothers use to live in Longmeadow. I have been to Boston. I love it there.

Did you see the throwdown with Francois Payard and Bobby Flay? The one where they made buche de noel--Francois Payard's was amazing!!! Bobby keeps going to the maple walnut flavors--he is getting too predictable.

I didn't see that. I love Francois and he makes amazing pastry. I cannot imagine even Bobby having the balls to challenge him. He is SO not a baker. To tell you the truth, I know "Booby Flea" from New York chef circles, and find him on the obnoxious side. I prefer to NOT watch him on TV.

Bobby Flay has come a long way since his early days on the Food Network. He could not speak at first and needed a foil. For someone trained at the French Culinary, I would expect him to have a wider range of flavors to be able to experiment with but he seems stuck in his preferred little bubble. I find him to be boring and predictable. However, I know folks who have been to his restaurant and loved the food. I also loved how when he opened up the place in Vegas, he cooked for the contractors and workers. He was wonderfully generous.
