Dan Souza 20 comments

I recently reviewed the new Lay's chips flavors (Sriracha, Chicken & Waffles, and Cheesy Garlic Bread) and have to reiterate that they are some pretty interesting chips. To get the inside scoop on how three flavors emerged as finalists, I contacted one of the Lay's competition judges, chef Michael Symon. More

Congratulations to Michael Symon of Cleveland's B Spot for winning the People's Choice Award at last Friday's South Beach Wine and Food Festival Burger Bash for the third year in a row. This year he made the Porky Burger, a pork and bacon burger topped with pulled pork and coleslaw. Last year he won for his Yo! Burger topped with fried salami, provolone cheese, shasha sauce, and pickled onion; the year before he won for his Fat Doug burger topped with Swiss, pastrami, and coleslaw. More

Cleveland: If Michael Symon Weren't Already a Celebrity, B Spot Would Make Him a Star

Michael Symon had already made it as a serious culinary and television star before he opened B Spot, his fast casual burger mini-chain in his hometown of Cleveland. As far as I'm concerned, these burgers are his crowning achievement. More

Daily Slice: Pork Sausage from Lolita, Cleveland, OH

Slice Daniel Zemans Post a comment

Iron Chef Michael Symon doesn't have a pizzeria but based on the pie I had at his restaurant Lolita in Cleveland, he definitely should think about. The pork sausage pizza, featuring housemade sausage and an excellent crust, is too good to be relegated to a small pizza section on a menu with so many non-pizza options. More

I went to the B Spot for AHT purposes but when I saw Michael Symon's menu had not one, but two different fried bologna sandwiches, I knew I had to do some research. More

Dinner Tonight: Linguine with Heirloom Tomato, Capers, Anchovies, and Chile

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

This Michael Symon recipe from Live to Cook is the kind of pasta dish I adore. Namely because the sauce is cooked quickly, using a mix of fresh, in-season produce and salty cured products. When the pasta is done cooking, it's tossed right into the pan with the sauce, so that each bite is coated with the flavorful mixture. It actually comes off something like a mix between a funky puttanesca and a fiery all'amatriciana. More

Michael Symon's Roasted Dates with Pancetta, Almonds, and Chile

New York Carey Jones Post a comment

These are incredibly simple—sliced almonds and red pepper flakes are added to sautéing pancetta and then spooned over roasted dates—but so addictive. The beauty of this preparation is the intensity and concentration of all the flavors: the sweetness of the... More

One Ring Zero's Recipe Music Project

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

[Image: orzrecipeproject.tumblr.com] Michael Hearst of the band One Ring Zero has already demonstrated his skills for mixing food and music in his Songs for Ice Cream Trucks album. Now he's jamming about chefs' favorite recipes. If you're into the edgier rock stuff, go with Chris Cosentino's Brain and Eggs and for more Bohemian polka-esque sounds, try Mario Batali's Spaghetti with Sweet 100 Tomatoes. The lyrics are not trying to rhyme or be too soulful—it's just the recipe verbatim, which is pretty awesome. Not enough lyrics involve "use small, firm organic pumpkins or winter squashes."

'Dinner Impossible' Premieres Tonight with Host Michael Symon

Erin Zimmer 8 comments

Winner of Food Network's reality show The Next Iron Chef, Michael Symon will begin hosting Dinner Impossible tonight, kicking off with two back-to-back episodes: one on Alcatraz Island, the other on the New Jersey boardwalk. Symon replaced Robert Irvine after "embellishments and inaccuracies" were made on Irvine's resume in February. According to this video interview (Warning: autoplay video), Symon wasn't allowed to cook on the historic prison island so he prepared everything at an off-site facility then shipped in the food. But as Iron Chef proved, Symon loves a good adrenaline rush. "I'm always pretty jacked up for a good competition," he said in the video. One episode to get excited for: a visit to the Crayola Crayon factory, where... More

Judging from the preview episode that aired this past Sunday night, the new Dinner Impossible with Michael Symon looks like a winner. This episode takes place in Wildwood, New Jersey, with a challenge to make "upscale boardwalk food" for 600 people using the boardwalk's vendors and supplies.
