Julia Child David Letterman Cooking Disaster (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightThere are days where nothing seems to go remotely the way you’d planned.

The kind of days where you burn the garlic bread beyond recognition, drop a pan of bubbly lasagna onto the floor, and turn the kitchen into a culinary disaster area just before the guests arrive.

Luckily, for most of us, we don’t have to experience that feeling on television, as the great Julia Child did in her funny and remarkable 1987 appearance on David Letterman below where she tries to cook a burger on live TV but the stove doesn’t work.

Tomorrow, would have been Julia Child’s 98th birthday, a cooking pioneer who inspired millions around the world to cook fearlessly for their friends and family.

Enjoy!




You can also watch this humorous video featuring Julia Child on the David Letterman show here.

If you enjoyed this video, you might also want to see Meryl Streep vs. Julia Child, a video featuring clips from the film Julie & Julia and The French Chef, so you can compare Streep’s impersonation of Julia Child with the original.

Also, here’s an easy recipe for Julia Child’s Cooling Cucumber Salad. You can enjoy even more Julia Child recipes here.

How to Prepare Shrimp For Cooking (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightShrimp are easy to cook (and even easier to eat). However, if you’ve ever purchased shrimp with the heads and/or tails still attached, you know that preparing unprocessed shrimp can be a bit of an ordeal if you haven’t done it before.

(Please see my humorous true story about my early battles with head-on shrimp: The Jumbo Shrimp Death March: A Culinary Catastrophe With a Side of Remoulade.)

However, buying shrimp this way can be a great way to save money and get more shrimp for your buck. Also, if you have access to seafood at your local farmer’s market or you have a fisherman in your family, learning how to prepare fresh, unprocessed shrimp can really come in handy.

Luckily, removing the head and tail of shrimp is far easier than it looks, as you can see in our shrimp preparation video below which shares a few quick tips to help you learn how to do this with grace and ease.

Bring on the grilled shrimp, Spanish paella, fried shrimp, and shrimp salad! Let the eating begin!

Enjoy!

Man Vs. the Hottest Pepper in the World, the Bhut Jolokia (Weekend Video Spotlight)

Weekend Video SpotlightFeeling hot hot hot? Want to feel even hotter?

The Bhut Jolokia was named the hottest pepper in the world (even hotter than the Habanero Pepper) by the Guinness Book of World Records.

After you watch the excruciating video below that features a seasoned spicy pepper eater feeling the burn from the aptly named Ghost Pepper, you might think twice about giving this fiery pepper a try.

You can find out more about the Jolokia in the article, The Hottest Chili Pepper in the World: 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units Strong as well as see a list of the hottest chili peppers here.

Enjoy!
