yeah I've seen that before. Having talked to Bobby on the phone, I can say that his demeanor is only slightly better than he comes off on tv.
I interviewed him once and have botha transcript and an audio link if you'd like to read or hear our conversation.
Off the phone, he was pretty nice, but still had what I call a New York
personality. It irritates lots of people (me included) but he's not the anti-Christ. I don't watch his shows anymore, simply cause I don't learn anything from him (that's why I'm here.) No doubt he is an amazing
chef, and he likes grilled food, but he, like Emeril, is pretty much a showman on tv. The real cooking teachers (like Alton) get my attention.
That author nailed it right on the head....not only about Flay, but also Rachel Ray, it's like she has an orgasm every time she puts a piece of food in her mouth. I'd love to see someone feed her a turd on that $40 a day show, she'd probably still drool all over it...
