Being Sean: The Battle At ‘Golden Corral’… A Special ’30-For-30’ (Video)

Wow! There is an awesome mix of ‘now that is a damn shame’ and ‘getting the train back on the right track’ in this latest blog post from the homie Sean ‘Cisco.’ And if you aren’t chiming in with “amens” every now and then as you read, maybe you’re in the wrong ‘meeting.’ Check back in an hour. We ‘Waist Watchers’ will be done by then.

There’s A Reason It’s Called Golden Corral…

It’s been a while since I told you about my progress on losing weight and that’s because….I gained weight. Yup picked up quite a few pounds, 30 to be exact. I know you are saying “Whoa, what happened?” Well….life happened. Remember when I told in previous stories that I am an emotional eater? The emotions don’t have to be negative. Happy gets food just as fast as stress and anger. Shoot that’s why McDonalds named the combo “Happy Meal”. How many people are going to order a “depressed meal” or a “pissed off meal”? It doesn’t work that way…

Cavalli Talks To His Terminally Ill Grandpa About His Coming Death (Video)

Sometimes you need a good cry. Coach Jim Valvano (aka Jimmy V, late great ESPN commentator and namesake of the Espys cancer courage award) said you need to think, laugh, and be moved to tears DAILY to have one helluva life. That, plus that I am all about FAMILY, made posting this a must-do for me. Very emotional, but you gotta watch!

Sean Paul and Chi Ching Ching Tasting And Teaching Jamaican Food & Culture To Horsepowar (Video)

‘First We Feast’ keeps coming up with good content. Of course, it is food-centered, so you know that will interest most humans. However, they really put work into the ‘human interest’ side of their series. This one on Jamaican Food, too.

Sean Paul is a dancehall icon and certified hit maker. But he’s also a ride-or-die obsessive when it comes to the food of his native Jamaica. Anxious to learn more about Jamaican curry goat, Horsepowar follows Sean and his latest Dutty Rock signee, Chi Ching Ching, to Glady’s Jerk Center in Brooklyn—a new-school home for Caribbean cuisine on Rogers Avenue. From a crash-course in patois, to a heated beef-patty taste test, Sean and Chi Ching school Horsepowar on all things Jamaican before diving into a couple heaping bowl of curry goat and oxtail. The Curry Shop heads to the Caribbean this week, and who better to breakdown the dos and don’ts than two generations of dancehall legends? Jeesam peas!
– First We Feast

They lost Horsepowar with the patois at first. She had to call a timeout on the chit-chat. Ha!

Steve Harvey’s Response To An Audience With A Stuttering Problem Is Literally Therapeutic (Video)

Respek on Steve Harvey’s name for this. All this. The sista is beautiful. It was just that her situation was ugly. But it looks like that is about to look up for her.

When an audience member asks about dating with a stutter, Steve opens up about his own personal struggle. This may be the most powerful moment yet.
Steve Harvey TV

I sooo wanted to start this post with just how fine the sista in this is… But I wanted her to be taken seriously (just as she desires, per the clip). Of course, I did slide her into the Noon spot (because she is definitely some Eye Candy).

Food: Pasta… Healthy, Affordable, And FAST (Video)

If you can’t tell, I am really on these ‘Eat Seeker’ vids from Thrillist lately. And if you couldn’t have guessed, I LOVE GOOD PASTA! I’m saying though… Who doesn’t??

It takes less than 45 seconds for Chef Mark Ladner to cook you a bowl of pasta at his new spot, Pasta Flyer. This isn’t a new chef-driven fast-casual concept that charges $13 for fettuccine with alfredo. This is real fast food – it’s under $9, lightning fast and has the added bonus of healthy ingredients sourced from around the city. This is the way fast food should be.

Food/Travel: Jo Koy’s Filipino Foodie Course Looks Epicly Delicious (Video)

You didn’t think Action Bronson was the only rapper that was heavy into foodie-ism, did you? Actually, I kinda get it if you did… what with Bam Bam being the one we see most across that part of the blogosphere. But First We Feast just busted through that crusted wall!

Welcome to the Curry Shop: a new weekly series that explores one of the world’s most misunderstood comfort foods. From Japan to Jamaica to China to Vietnam, every culture has its own spin on a bowl of curry—and Indian-Canadian rapper Horsepowar is here to sample them all.

The first stop on Horsepowar’s quest is the Philippines. To help Horsepowar answer some of her burning curry questions, she’s teaming up with the hilarious Filipino comedian and food philosopher Jo Koy. At Maharlika in NYC, Jo drops some knowledge about Bicol Express—a spicy, coconut-based stew that bears a striking resemblance to some of the curries Horsepowar has sampled in her travels. But the feast doesn’t end there: From remixed chicken and waffles, to 7-Up–cured pork tenderloin, Jo and Horsepowar also explore the cultural roots of Filipino fusion before making a final verdict on Bicol Express. Is Bicol Express truly a curry? Is curry really just a stew? Find out the answers to these existential food queries on the series premiere of the Curry Shop.

Food: This Vegan Restaurant Insists It Serves ‘Cheese’… Even If It Is Non-Dairy (Video)

Crazy how I keep coming across more and more vegan stuff that I would scarf down, like, IMMEDIATELY! Like this stuff… making me an ‘Eat Seeking’ missile over here!

Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz wants people to rethink the language they use when it comes to vegan food. The owner of Modern Love in Brooklyn, New York, believes people need to say the word “cheese,” even if they are referring to the non-dairy-based alternative. This is apparent on her menu, offering dishes like the modern cheese plate, an assortment of various vegan cheeses that imitate the flavors and textures of dill Havarti and chevre.

Cheese glorious cheese (remember that commercial?); even this vegan variety gets me singing. And I haven’t even tried it yet #BucketList #FillMyBucketWithThis

Food: You ‘Win Son,’ You Lose None… Of The Taiwanese Culture & Flavor (Video)

Careful about throwing around the word ‘authentic’ or being so quick to judge what is not authentic. I came across this Eat Seeker video and played (and decided to share) it because the food looked delicious. But this (and like their other episodes) go deeper than ‘staying true’ to where the cuisine is ‘from’… Get into the meaning behind the dishes, the motives and motivations of the chefs. This clip [and series] is cool (AND delicious)!

Over the last few years, Taiwanese food has slowly been getting a little more recognition across the city of New York. At the beloved Taiwanese spot, Win Son, co-owners Trigg Brown and Josh Ku have worked incredibly hard to build an association with the language they use on their menu. Together they have crafted a menu that highlights Taiwanese mainstays like the o-a jian (oyster omelette), fly’s head, and danzi noodles at their Brooklyn restaurant. Their hope is that small changes like using the Taiwanese dish names on the menu can help promote Taiwanese cultural and culinary identity in the city.
