Embellishment Belongs On Food Only

I am incredibly disappointed to find out that Robert Irvine of "Dinner: Impossible" is being cut from the Food Network due to his "embellished resume." Read about it here

He is fantastic. He really knows his stuff and I can't imagine why he'd want to tell falsehoods.

I can only dream to produce the way he does. He gets people who know nothing about food, who haven't seen the inside of a kitchen to help him come up with some creative, innovative tactics to get the job done.
Well, just because you're a liar doesn't mean you don't know how to do your job.

  1. Thats too bad. I love that show. Not saying what he did was right, but hasn't he proved himself. Sometimes you have to tell some tall tales to get in the door.It wasnt like he was practicing medicine without a degree or something. Damned if you do, damned if you dont!

  2. glamah: I know. I love that show too. I'm not so sure about the telling "tales to get in the door" part. Only because careers have been ruined and such for "embellishments". SimplyFired.com tells the tall tales of many who went this route.

    jeena: Thank you.

  3. This just goes to show that the Food Network is not interested in celebrating real chefs, they are about promoting "personalities".
