maybe to her own detriment
I’ve been watching Daisy Martinez’s show on the Food Network, Viva Daisy!, produced by Rachael Ray and it’s pretty good.
On her own show this morning, Rachael showcased Daisy beautifully. Daisy did a (wonderfully pronounced) Choripan, which is uncooked sausage without fennel, split down the middle and grilled until crispy. (In South America, she’d use the hard-to-find-here uncooked chorizo.) It's served on good, also crispy, bread and topped with an avocado salsa.
Now if only Rachael could give her own recipes a makeover! RR wanted to do a "sammie" as well, but her recipe was unattractive and unappealing. NO ONE likes sautéed green peppers, even if they are cubanelles. With these steamed anemic looking peppers, she cooked a bunch of brown ground meat and called it a Sloppy Joe. Really, how many sloppy joe recipes do we need?
If this had been a cook off, Daisy would have run away with the grand prize, leaving Rachael in the dust. Hers was much more appetizing, interesting and worth making. I guess it's good that Rachael is comfortable enough to have a clearly superior cook on with her. I think she should stick to videos of cleaning out viewers' closets.
