Hell's Kitchen Ketchup, Ketchup Kitchen Hell

Were it not for "Mitsubishi" and "blend door", the word "simmer" would be my most hated word of the week.

The good news is, I have a healthy quantity of a tomato product in my refrigerator that tastes remarkably like my memories of the last time I had the ketchup at Hell's Kitchen here in Minneapolis, The bad news is how I got there - the kitchen that looks like an abbatoir, the horrific burns on my face, and all because of that one word. Simmer.

Random Notes

A few items, mostly Alton Brown related:

First, if you love Alton Brown, and want to love him even more than you ever thought possible, go right now and read this Onion AV Club interview with him. Two key words - plane, and bullet.

Second, one of the reasons he gave the interview was to promote the Good Eats 10th Anniversary Special, which will not only be airing tomorrow night, but will apparently be a LIVE variety show. I suspect it will need to be seen to be believed.
