    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Alton Brown: Over on the challenger's side we've got white asparagus being run through a kind of primitive chitarra that Jamie Oliver pulled out to shred some very small, baby zucchinis as well.

      • Alexandra Guarnaschelli: (about the fish and chips) It's really surprising that when you put the hot food on the newspaper, I smell the newspaper a little bit, and I actually like that as part of the dish. I know, I'm a freak.
        Jamie Oliver: I'm loving you!
        Alexandra Guarnaschelli: I'm willing to admit it, I'm going out on a limb here, I dig your newspaper scent.

      • Alton Brown: Checking in with the Iron Chef, plating is in full swing. That is the celery and roasted almond salad being paired with a blackened cobia cube. I don't even have any idea what to call that dish…
        Mario Batali: Lunch, baby!

      • Jamie Oliver: He is probably, genuinely, one of the most inspiring chefs in the world for me, but the thing is, I don't want to lose to Mario Batali, absolutely not.

      • Alton Brown: (of Gennaro Contaldo) All right, I quit. He just wiped the sweat from his brow with a chef knife. I haven't seen that before, I'm very frightened of him.

      • Mario Batali: Jamie Oliver is the Rolling Stones of Italian cooking. In England, people don't just buy books, they line up to scream.

It was also the lead-in for a special preview of Jamie Oliver's new (to America) show, Jamie at Home, which officially premiered the following Saturday.
