In slide 13 of the Food Network’s review of Guarnaschelli and what you likely wouldn’t know about the chef, they dish that she can’t stand pattypan squash or haggis. Haggis, especially when canned as the Got Licorice blog writes, has a smell that would remind one of dog food more than human food, so it stands to reason that may not be on her list of faves.
Pattypan squash, on the other hand, Guarnaschelli dislikes for an opposing meaning. “They’re cute, but have no flavor,” she spilled to Parade Magazine. With that reasoning, one can kind of better understand Guarnaschelli’s thought process. After all, is there anything worse for a chef — especially one who’s been exposed to many strange flavors on Iron Chef and Chopped – than lack of flavor? What’s the point?
So, have Guarnaschelli’s tastes influenced your opinion on either of these eats?
