Food Network Maraton: 10:30-11:00, Sara’s Secrets (II)

Double your Sara, double your fun. Two episodes back to back? I’m in heaven.

Now Sara’s making papillote: food cooked in a bag. I tried this once and almost killed Lauren with uncooked fish. But Sara makes it look easy.

Sara warns: “Cooking fish in parchament paper looks so pretty, but be careful when serving it to your guests–make sure they know not to eat the parchament! When I used to work at this restaurant, La Toile, the waiter brought fish in parchament paper over to a table and the guest started eating the paper. Don’t let this happen to you!”

Uh oh Sara made a boo-boo before the break, talking about Baked Alaska: “I told you to put the ice cream in the microwave for 20-30 minutes. I don’t think so! I meant 20-30 seconds.”

Now a guest is talking to Sara on the phone. This guest is a little dull and Sara, like any good hostess, feigns interest. She also gets her off the phone quickly.

Sara always ends her shows with a Game Plan. What you can do a few days ahead, etc etc. Ah, now the show’s over and I’m starving. When planning a Food TV Marathon one should probably have food in the house. Now I might starve to death. If you don’t hear from me in a little while, send over an emergency danish. Which is a nice segue to the next show…
