After a great Father’s Day weekend we have an extra special treat to help with that case of theMi days – Chicken Charlie is in the house! If you’re relatively new to the Livecast, Chicken Charlie is the king of all deep fried fair food and will be returning to the show for the 3rd time. In previous years he unveiled new items like the infamous deep fried Oreos and we were lucky enough to be treated to another round of new creations. Deep dried cookie dough, Krispy Kreme doughnut sloppy joes, waffle dogs with syrup and finally the bacon wrapped pickles just absolutely blew us away.
After we checked out all these tasty treats and received our yearly update from Charlie (you may soon see a Chicken Charlie restaurant), Sam and Charlie hopped in the kitchen to attempt to deep dry marshmallows. It may have been a little difficult but in the end they were amazing – thanks to Chicken Charlie for another great show!
It’s another MasterChef Friday and after an action packed episode (when teams were chosen our @MC4Lynn was picked 1st for the second straight time!) Sam and Max had a lot of behind the scenes questions for Lynn. Curious about the fight between Natasha and Beth? Is Bime out of his league? All questions are answered in our weekly behind the scenes tell-alls. Next time you watch (Wednesdays @ 8 PM on Fox) write down some questions and tweet them to us to be answered!
Once we were satisfied with Lynn’s answers we hopped in the kitchen for this quick and delicious kettle corn recipe. Chipotle and chili definitely kick it up a notch or two! WARNING: this will ruin you for average popcorn. See you next week Livecasters.
If you have ever been to Philadelphia, you are most likely familiar with a certain sandwich that has been a culinary staple in the city for decades: the Philly Cheesesteak. And while many in this city of brotherly love attempt to lay claim to the title of Cheesesteak Champion, only one can truly have that honor. With that being said, we introduce one of the most interesting and entertaining guests we’ve ever had, the one and only Tony Luke. If you’re interested in how this former musician, fighter, actor and family man managed to build up over 30 Cheesesteak locations across the East Coast and become one of the coolest all-around dudes ever, be sure to check out this lively interview with Sam and Tony.
From there we dive into the kitchen for an informal cook-off – cheesesteak style. Tony threw together one of the classics from his Tony Luke’s Cheesesteaks restaurants, the Broccoli Rabe. Sam (despite clearly being a little intimidated) followed with his own take on the classic and essentially created an Asian style cheesesteak with chimichurri sauce. Both we’re seriously out of control good, you will NOT want to miss this episode.
New week, new flavors. This particular dish also happens to be brand new to Sam considering it was the first time he has ever made it. With your own homemade croutons combined with the salami and eggs you will be happy to have a new breakfast item to add to your repertoire.
Coming up in the next episode we have an extra special treat for you – let’s just say that we’ll be paying tribute to the one and only Philly Cheese Steak. Get ready, it’s gonna be interesting.
It’s MasterChef Friday’s (in case you didn’t know, our very own crew member Lynn is one of the competitors on the show) along with the end of Spring Pasta Week – what a week it’s been! We poked and prodded Lynn until he divulged some great inside information, chatted about Chef Ramsey, checked in on a certain controversial tea kettle that was recalled from JC Penny and then finally closed out the show with tangy and delicious sausage and zucchini pasta.
