Food Fest

Well folks, QVC aired Food Fest for 2 hours with Bob Bowersox (a little too arrogant for my taste) and the holy grail himself David Venable. David is simply the finest host on television and its not even up for debate. I thought i would muse over some of his great lines tonight. Here is a rundown of the products and some of the beauties from DV

Stuffin Gourmet Meatballs “This Honker can smell it from a mile away”-David coming from off-set to interrupt Bowersox presenting the dish

David then joined the always popular Pitmaster Robert Moye from Corky’s. they were flogging some special sauce tonight so David opened up with the tried and true line “if you go to memphis (Corky’s flagship) and ask for Barbecue ribs, they’ll look at you funnny” in reference to only finding these ribs at the Q

“thaw ’em up, heat ’em up and eat ’em up”

David then talked about the great portion sizing of the ribs (8 separate 1/2 lb portions) “how many times do you make ribs and the kids say ‘mommy i cant eat all this’.” …I really have no recollection of not eating ribs nor can i recall too many kids not eating ribs. Normally they end up wearing half of them and getting it all over themselves, either way you can certainly give them as little or as much as you desire so whats the packaging difference. Nonetheless, nice one Dave.

And once again DV could not stay away from the innuendo as he asked the Pitmaster “you like to do something with these (ribs) called the twist and slide”

Up next were Mrs. Prindable’s caramel apples “This is for the nut lover.” ok, so this would ordinarily be fairly innocuous but from David come on. then he had a gem as he asked a caller “Why the nut sampler? are you crazy over nuts?”

David broke into musical theatre before introducing Kim and Scotts pretzels, singing “Chicago, Chicago. Pretzels, Pretzels”

David wrapped up his final product by hocking the trusty Kansas City Steakburgers and let out one of the best quotes of the night …”Im sorry, God is in His Heaven when i have a bacon cheddar burger”
he then had a bite and proceeded to dance a jig

All in all a terrific thursday night spent with David and he will be back on Saturday. Please mark your calendars for this Saturday for Dining with David special. He will be presenting with his mother for a special Mother’s Day edition. Until then raise a nice white whine spritzer to Sarah Venable, the mother of David
