What's you Good Eats Geek Code??What's you Good Eats Geek Code??

No, I'm not going to take the time to do it, I just thought it was clever and funny (and I'm a big Good Eats fan).

text here. Yeah, I saw the show once or twice.

I prefer to do stuff on my own though. I learn through my mistakes--and I eat them.

Sometimes that's a good thing, sometimes bad.

I don't have time to do the rest.


That's too time-consuming! (1)

While I will admit to brining the turkey this Thanksgiving, and enjoying the show, I don't make a ton of his recipies. I did make his curry chicken pot pie, and it's become a monthly (or so) routine -- just without the curry. ick. I do, however, put cayenne, ground mustard, garlic, and lots of black pepper in it. The curry's just *too much*.

I watch it on Wednesdays, if I remember, and on the weekend if it's on and we're in. I *did* buy the book for my husband for Christmas, and we've been rather pleased with it as a reference book.

His mousse is a monthly thing in our house. However, my wife doesn't like the coffee/rum flavoring, so we mess with the recipe a bit. Tried it with pureed strawberries and amaretto. YUM!

I did the cake, which was not worth it (tastes identical to a box-made cake). The ribroast was good, and the burger of the gods was great. But the mushroom dish he did was spectacular.

..."I'm Just Here for the Food" [] and it was the first (and so far only) season pass I've set up with TiVo (my wife has set up quite a few...). Actually, was the first show recorded on the TiVo! I love me some AB. But the code was a little long in the tooth.

I like the show a lot (you wouldn't say alittle!) and I have learned a thing or two from him,

but I just don't watch enough tv to see him regularly.

P.S.- Cod kinda sucks. It doesn't have too much flavor on its own. And now my house smells like fish. Stick with Tialapa.

Here ya go... (1)

Pretty funny. I'm sure I'll be watching AB a lot more now that I've got my new Tivo-Like-Device from Time Warner to record all my shows!

Is there that much of a Good Eats following? (1)

Saige (53303) | more than 11 years ago | (#5903699)

I've seen the show a few times, and I like when I get to catch it, as I can learn quite a bit about a food along with ideas on how to cook it. I was really happy to see the one about Tuna, as I love seared Tuna. Haven't had a chance to make the recipe, yet.

But it doesn't seem to be THAT big of a deal as a show - why all the following and excitement about the show? Is there something about the show that appeals particularly well to geekkind or something?

Me, I personally prefer Cooking School Stories - but that might just be because I'm seriously considering entering culinary school in a few years or so. (I find cooking more fun than coding...)
