IPad vs. Blender – Will It Blend? [Apple Fans Look Away]

We sometimes talk about food and technology but this is more like food vs. technology. Well not really but it’s a great lazy way of setting up this video. We’ve talked about this awesome blender back when we first saw it shred a rake handle. But Blendtec just keeps finding cooler and more interesting things to shove into their mega blender. Apparently grinding new technology such as the IPad and IPhone to dust is a great way of keeping your brand in front of the masses while at the same …

Cook’s Illustrated Non-Sticks It To ‘Preferred’ Subscribers

You always hurt the ones you love. This morning we got an email from Cook’s Illustrated with a ‘Special Thanks’ offer to preferred subscribers. Its a letter ‘signed’ by Kimball himself in which he says ” I really do go over our records and note our “repeat customers” like you” (and it was underlined so you know its true).

All you have to do is read the comments by our readers about Robert Irvine being fired to know that most Dinner Impossible  viewers wanted him back, but what we didn’t know was that his replacement Michael Symon was from the start only a temporary host and that the Food Network planned to bring Irvine back all along.

In his first public appearance since the allegations began, Gordon Ramsay laughed off rumors of his long time affair with associate Sarah Symonds.
The Telegraph quoted Ramsay as saying: “We had a new bed delivered this week – the paparazzi outside must have been thinking that I’d been forced to sleep in the basement.
Now at Kitchen Warfare we’re very interested in sex forced to write about food (for more on sex check this out) but no doubt these sort of ‘out of the kitchen’ activities can have rippling effects even …

How They Did It: The First Thanksgiving

In reality we know very little about the first ‘Thanksgiving’ (some even claim the first thanksgiving feast was actually in St Augustine). But even so there is little doubt that the first feast had little in common what we In America consider a ‘traditional’ Thanksgiving.
There are only two accounts of what actually happened at the ‘first’ Thanksgiving, the most detailed coming from Mourt’s Relation, a first hand account of the Pilgrim’s experience.
“our harvest being gotten in, our governour sent foure men on fowling, that so we might after a …

Well you know us, we make fun of everything and its hard not to resist poking fun at the obvious. But of course the sobering reality is that many of us struggle with our weight and having a higher awareness and interest in the culinary arts can make ‘watching your weight’ a lot more challenging. It’s one thing to like to eat, but its made even more difficult by the ability and the PASSION for creating the best possible food we can. If we’re trying to lose weight many …

63% of you prefer Bobby Flay?
If you’ve read KW for any length of time you know we’re very cynical about . . . well most things really. So generally speaking when companies conduct their own consumer surveys (95% polled love Kitchen Warfare, 3% can’t read, 4% can’t count) we tend to take them with a grain of salt. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to read and ponder.
So up for roasting today is the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association’s (HPBA) national consumer poll on backyard barbecuing. After all …
