    Great BIG Sellout with blonde wife.... but I still like him



    The earrings are a huge turn-off though. I think it's the accent as he really isn't my type.

    His patois is MUCH worse than mine 02:04





    Re: sellout, see the part in blue.

    No one really talks about Chopped, the Food Network's erstwhile JV-team Top Chef knockoff that challenges relatively unknown chefs to create edible dishes using the most oddball combination of mystery basket ingredients, all the while enduring icy death stares from the judges. It is, at times, hard to watch. Anyway, the network brought back previous winners for a series of semi-finals — calling it "Chopped Champions" — and last night was the ultimate final episode to choose the, er, Chopped Champion.In the end, London native Madison Cowan beat out the three other finalists to walk away with the title and $50,000. After winning the competition, producers surprised Cowan with his six-year-old daughter who snuck up behind him. And then came the waterworks — a true, genuine moment — even judges Marc Murphy, Alex Guarnaschelli, and Geoffrey Zakarian cried. Awww.
    The Ingredients
    The appetizer round the contestants had to combine geoduck (not "gooey duck" as the Post spells it), Buddha's Hand, black radishes, and waffle cones. The entree round had smelt, dried red currants, cheese curls (aka Cheetos), and rack of wild boar. And finally, for the dessert round: champagne, dragon fruit, tahini, and cake flour. Cowan's dessert? A dark chocolate and tahini cake with a dragon fruit and champagne compote.
    More on Madison Cowan

    Cowan is the owner of Avenue Inc., a New York City-based culinary production company, and he also operates what he calls "a global clandestine dining club." From his Food Network bio: "My family reads like the United Nations. I was born in South London to a Jamaican father and an African-American mother. My wife is Danish, my daughter is Japanese and I'm just a ragamuffin from Brixton." Cowan told the Post that he "plans to use his winnings to bring his family to the States" from London.

    ast week I had an amazing opportunity to meet Chef Madison CowanIron Chef America Winner, Chopped!Grand Champion, Extreme Chef Judge on Food network and star in the new television show, No Kitchen Required at a live taping of his media satellite tour with the National Pork Board here in NYC.
    Chef Madison Cowan on Set
    To help home cooks unleash the limitless power of the pork chop, America’s pork producers have enlisted a pro who knows a thing or two about chops. Because this worldly chef is known for blending diverse inspirations from around the globe and the pork chop is one of his favorite go-to meats to cook, the Pork Board asked Chef Madison Cowan to create some fresh global-inspired pork recipes and talk about them with a live demo for a national satellite media tour that was broadcasted on television and radio stations around the country last week

    The three most popular types of pork are bone-in rib chops, top loin chops, and blade chops but not all consumers are aware of all the great choices they have when it comes to cooking with pork. To educate and inspire home cooks, the Pork board asked Chef Madison to create some fresh and global inspired recipes with new ways to cook pork chops other than the basic frying and baking techniques.

    During the taping, Chef Madison demos his amazing pork recipes, talks about his London, Detroit and Jamaican heritage, his step-mother’s influence on his cooking and his passion and love for food, family and his culinary career. His pork dishes were absolutely gorgeous and tantalizing and colorful!

    Then how come you discuss and pon other sellouts? Are you giving him a pass because he is half Jamaican?

    What do you think of his patois?
