The Chew: Surviving Snowstorm Nemo
Clinton Kelly admitted that he hadn’t left the house for two days because of super snowstorm Nemo. New York City received about eight inches of snow, but as Michael Symon said, “in Cleveland we call this ‘spring.’” Mario Batali also wished that the storm had been a bit more substantial, especially after the news made such a fuss about it.
How did Clinton survive cabin fever? By making delicious meals! He cooked up a batch of Michael Symon’s Chicken Fricassee, as well as Mario Batali’s Spaghetti Carbonara. Carla Hall spent hours decorating cookies, then brought some to share with her friends.
The hosts also watched the Grammy Awards in order to avoid boredom. Michael enjoyed the performance by Mumford & Sons, while Clinton showed a picture of Justin Timberlake’s delivery pizza at 3 AM.
