"...Sushi chef Angela Majko of Uchiko (4200 N. Lamar) will be one of four contestants competing on the Food Network's very popular cooking competition show Chopped tonight at 9pm CST..."
"...She won the local round of Chefs Under Fire 2010 and was a fan favorite in the statewide finals. But did that experience and her years of turning out "gourmet comfort food" at Max's Wine Dive prepare her to win $10,000 on Chopped? Find out Sunday...."
"...Catering chef Janelle Reynolds joins the list of nearly a dozen local chefs to compete on the Food Network's Chopped this season. She makes her cooking competition debut on Tuesday, Sept..."
"...The Food Network continues to showcase Austin cooking talent on Chopped, with an episode featuring Jason Stude airing tonight (9/17) at 9pm. Second Bar + Kitchen (200 Congress Ave.) will host a viewing party tonight and is offering Stude's first-round competition dish as a menu special this week...."
"...Some foods are just unequivocally sexier than other foods. Oysters, strawberries and champagne, dark chocolate, and chopped liver..."
"...Luck of the draw is often no luck at all, and despite the presence of top-drawer character-actor talent (Guzmán, in particular, is utterly wasted here, while Turturro seems distracted and bored by the whole thing), director Scott fails to locate the pulse of a city once more on the brink of economic ruin. Edited with a disastrously distracting eye toward Scott's ever-increasing penchant for irritating and overwhelming stylistic flourishes (the film seems to have been chopped and cut by someone on an Adderall binge), there's precious little that’s memorable or even exciting about this new, annoying Pelham, which goes off the rails early on and never recovers..."
"...Linda Adams won both the Grand Prize and the Cakes/Cupcakes division with a recipe for Fresh Pear Cake she adapted from a Houston Junior League Cookbook years ago. With pears in season, it should make a tasty addition to any holiday table. Fresh Pear Cake 4 cups peeled and chopped pears 2 cups sugar 1 cup chopped pecans Combine all three ingredients in a bowl..."
"...Bay's big-budget adaptation of the eternal battle between good (the Autobots, led by big-cheese Optimus Prime) and evil (the Decepticons, fronted by the towering, glowering Megatron, who, frankly, have nothing on indie-pop darlings Le Tigre's righteously catchy tune) is vastly more entertaining than you might suspect. It's a stripped-down, chopped, locked, and loaded Bay-gasm – a sensory overload of action/sci-fi clichés that works, mostly, thanks to some ingenious CGI work courtesy of Industrial Light & Magic and the full-bore, whining, grinding, whirring, and screeching sound design of Erik Aadahl, which transforms what could have been just another chunk of overlong, overloud summer crud into a fully immersive action mindblower..."
"...Swift's gives Chopped the Zack attack, Paula Forbes revisits Austin, and more afternoon bites...."
"...If Philip Speer, culinary director for the Uchi enterprise, handed me a guinea hen and told me I had thirty minutes to prep and cook it, I would turn into a puddle. But that's what separates the competitors of 86'd, an Austin version of Food Network's show Chopped, from the rest of us...."
"...Laid out on the table are brightly wrapped bars from all over the world and a jar of roasted cocoa beans. The walls are covered with posters from chocolate makers and the cutting board on the counter was covered in chopped cocoa drops..."
"...Lets get into the Halloween spirit with the relatively new genre of drag aka witch house or haunted house. Think of it as a candy corn: a chopped and screwed rap base with a dense shoegaze center and a noise tip..."
"...3 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped..."
"...2 shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, finely chopped (Texas Organic Mushrooms) ..."
"...½ medium onion, chopped..."
"...1 cup chopped onion..."
"...¼ cup chopped tasso (sub ham if unavailable)..."
"...2 tablespoons chopped garlic..."

"...For Crab and Shrimp Cakes: 1/2 cup chopped green onion 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 teaspoons ginger, finely chopped Juice of 1 lemon 1 tablespoon jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped 1/2 pound crabmeat, finely chopped 3/4 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined, coarsely chopped 1 egg, beaten 1 cup panko bread crumbs, plus more to roll Butter and vegetable oil for pan frying Chives for garnish..."
"...Whether there was commercial pet food then, I do not know. Our days started with feeding the farm dogs and cats from great pots of cornmeal "mush" into which food scraps and chopped organ meats and the less-than-perfect fresh-picked vegetables (raw and cooked) were added..."
"...Pick your choice of four locally made, freshly grilled sausages – smoked Italian, Texas jalapeño, all-beef country sausage, and bratwurst – and the Best Wurst serves it to you on a roll with fresh-cut grilled onions and hot sauerkraut, dressed with homemade brown mustard and/or curry ketchup. Don't miss the New York buttered salt potatoes, boiled in a mild salt brine, served whole with melted butter and chopped green onions and sprinkled with spicy seasoning. Boomerang's Gourmet Veggie & Meat Pies..."
"...2 cups toasted pecans (8 ounces), coarsely chopped, plus 2/3 cup toasted pecan halves..."
"...1 bunch green onions with tops, chopped..."
"...1 medium onion, chopped..."
"...1 cup very finely chopped pecans..."
"...With about 20 different options on the menu, it is hard to make up your mind at Hut's. I like the Ritchie Valens: guacamole, grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, mayo, and mustard..."
"...1 cup dried apricots, chopped..."
"...Lebewohl's food (the restaurant has unaltered its original recipes) is mostly no-nonsense, no frills. Chopped liver is liver chopped, no hardboiled eggs..."
"...2 Tbs. chopped shallots..."
"...Unlike many barbecue places, the Iron Works prepares its own brand of sausage, which in my opinion out-sparkles all other items on the generally competent menu. For those like myself who are growing bored with the standard barbecue sides, it also serves baked potatoes topped with butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon bits, or even chopped beef..."
"...The second was a new one for both of us: a Thirty-Layer German Baumtorte. The concept was simple when examined rationally: basically very thin layers of crêpe batter browned quickly under a broiler, then topped with an apricot glaze with Gran Marnier and chopped hazelnuts; repeat 30 times in a springform pan; when the pan is full, let cool, trim, and cloak with a dense orange-chocolate glaze and more filberts..."
"...9 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped or semi-sweet chocolate bits..."

"...Pick your choice of locally made, freshly grilled sausages – smoked Italian, all-beef country sausage, and bratwurst – and they'll serve it to you on a roll with fresh grilled onions and hot sauerkraut, dressed with homemade brown mustard and/or curry ketchup. Best Wurst will also be serving my favorite treat, New York buttered salt potatoes, boiled in mild salt brine and served whole with melted butter, chopped green onions, and a sprinkling of spicy seasoning.

"...1 onion, finely chopped..."
"...Folks endure long lines in the blistering heat to enjoy a taste of the legendary smoked meats, prepared at the original Hill Country pit. This year's menu includes sausage wraps, Sloppy Nachos, chopped-brisket sandwiches, and a dish of Ribs & Slaw..."
"...The busy catering department has left the razzle-dazzle behind for the festival. They'll be serving three great flavors of ice cream and luscious shakes: Mexican Vanilla, Belgian Milk Chocolate, and Zilker Mint Chip with only chopped pecans or peanut M&M's for toppings..."
"...Buy sushi-grade fish whenever possible, and for extra security, allow the fish to cure in lime juice or other citrus juice at least 8 hours or overnight before serving. Add your other chilled, chopped ingredients -- tomato, onion, avocado, jicama, watermelon, cilantro -- just prior to serving for best results..."
"...1/4 cup chopped celery ribs and leaves..."
"...1 onion, chopped..."
"...1/4 bunch cilantro, stems removed and leaves chopped..."
"...So I ordered lunch: some welcomed sides (including whitefish salad, chopped liver, and cucumber salad); a knish (a bialy-shaped, usually potato-filled pastry); and an adaptation of my own version of my favorite corned beef on rye...."
"...I won't make an argument that real Texas food should come on a refrigerated truck, but there is something about our heavily spiced junk foods – the Frito pies served at Friday football games or the chopped beef-stuffed baked potatoes dished out at church fundraisers – that seems to get to the heart of the state more than the haute Southwestern served with a side of cowhide-upholstered banquettes...."
"...Mark Avalos' first experience with barbecue success was a smoked pork shoulder he chopped up and served on sandwiches topped with a tangy coleslaw. The sandwiches were so well received they became Avalos' signature item, the dish around which the self-taught pit man would eventually build a barbecue business..."
"...½ cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped..."
"...We began the meal with a bone marrow appetizer ($8), which came in its own cute, cast-iron skillet with soft, warm French bread and a side of orange marmalade that was tasty on its own, but the unctuous wonder of the marrow is best enjoyed all by itself. We were enticed by the Pit Chili ($6), served over Fritos with shredded smoked cheddar and chopped onions, but the chunks of nicely spiced brisket were too large and a tad greasy, which made the chips soggy quickly; I prefer my Fritos chili pie with finely chopped meat and crisp chips...."
"...In the past couple of weeks alone Sugar Mama's Bakeshop (1905 S. First) owner Olivia O'Neal won a battle on Cupcake Wars, and Hudson's on the Bend (3519 RR 620 N.) sous chef McCaily Cranna competed on Chopped..."
