Original post @ Food Network Humor. Giada’s trying to play off her concern for this guy’s waistline, but you can definitely detect the “are you crazy?!” edge in her voice that she wasn’t able to disguise. Those crazy people, eating entire potatoes. That’s what’s wrong with America. Speaking of potatoes, I’ve decided that the baked or boiled potato is the purest expression of comfort food. Potatoes roasted or fried in duck fat may be infinitely more delicious, but when you consider comfort food stripped down to its bare bones, to its bloody heart, I think you’ll find such a creature, most simply savored with s&p and an indulgent knob of butter.
Thanks E for bringing FNH to my attention!
