Crawfish Boil Aspic

Just in case you've ever doubted that I have my finger on the pulse of bad New Orleans dining:

Dish reportedly made by one of New Orleans' three most overrated chefs, John Besh, on Iron Chef America, as described by posters on a local dining forum:

POSTER A: I believe it had crawfish boil elements to it - potatoes, corn, and andouille boiled in crab boil and suspended in gelatin.

POSTER B: I saw the episode, and it was indeed a deconstructed crawfish boil aspic. I thought it was brilliant: clever, tasty, traditional in flavor, yet unexpected and lovely on the plate. Diced andouille, fresh corn kernels, tiny brunoise of potatoes, etc in a seafood broth gelatin.

Dish made by an insufferable chef at an insufferable restaurant in Soul Kitchen, description written six months before the episode of Iron Chef America aired:

... "Crawfish Boil," a single crawfish, a potato cube, and a few dehydrated corn kernels encased in crab-boil-flavored gelee.

Hell, now I can even predict what these clowns are going to do. I AM TEH KING OF CRAP FOOD MOCKERY.


P.S. He won the "battle," beating real chef Mario Batali, which further proves my contention that Iron Chef America is a pathetic joke not worth watching.
