What Would Brian Boitano Make? Review

Taking home a gold medal in 1988 for men’s figure skating in the singles category, Brian Boitano certainly knows his…cooking? That’s right, the former Olympic champion is coming out with his own cookbook, What Would Brian Boitano Make?

If you’re wondering where the strange title comes from, there’s a bit of a story behind that. In the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, there was a musical number called “What Would Brian Boitano Do?” Rather than make a lyric out of if like Kanye West, he took the joke in good humor and scored a network show on Food Network that played off the number’s title: What Would Brian Boitano Make? Drawing from his experiences on the show, Brian Boitano made his new cookbook.


Michael Symon Braised Pot Roast Recipe

Given that the whole episode is based around taking pre-prepared frozen meals and cooking them, I’ll have to say I’m not sure what exactly Symon will be surprising us with on this one. Beef has to be frozen at some point anyways, so that’s nothing new. Maybe he’ll freeze some potatoes and carrots and show us a yankee pot roast? Who knows.

Mario Batali’s Roasted Pork & Penne Pasta Recipe With Asparagus & Peas

Wow, that dish is a mouthful…the title, I mean. Of course this dish would be a mouthful. You’d be eating it. Anyhow, Mario is going to be showing everyone a nice meal to cook for your mother on Mother’s Day this year. Last year, I made her nothing, and the year before that, something caught on fire. I feel as if a little direction might be beneficial this time around. See you tomorrow!
