A few random bits of Food Network news for today.  Tyler Florence is currently filming an episode of Barefoot Contessa with Ina Garten in the Hamptons.  Tyler has said that he will be making fried chicken on the episode and has been posting pictures of the day on his Twitter page (like the one pictured to the right.)  So look for that episode to come during the new season of Barefoot Contessa, which begins its ninth season in June of this year.

Also, Target has recalled a Giada De Laurentiis Lasagna Pan (9 x 13) due to it being a laceration hazard.  Here is information on the recall if you happen to have one of the pans and the handles haven't broken off yet.  From the report, 'Target has received 39 reports of the pan or its handles breaking or cracking during normal use.  Cuts and lacerations were reported in six of those incidents.'

Giada De Laurentiis Target Pan RecallThe pans have been sold since 2009, and despite multiple reviews dating back to 2010 warning of handles breaking on the first use, the recall didn't come until today.  Some of the oven handles were actually falling off while in the oven while baking.  Ironically, the picture picture on the pan boasts "Durable, High Quality Stoneware" and "Elegant handles for easy lifting and carrying."

UPDATE - Giada also filmed with Ina Garten this week, so look for Giada to be on Barefoot Contessa this season too. Picture


  1. I pass on everything Ina does..can't be bothered with a Make-A-Wish dying kid then I can't be bothered with her austerity in the hamptons.

  2. Hell yeah! Needs to take her barefoot ass to the gutter.
