In Case You Missed It…OMG! ELV at FN on ICA was A-OKAY

In case you missed it, Iron Chef America aired Battle Tilapia last night on Food Network.

ELV missed it, because no one gave him fair warning the episode was about to air. We found out at dinner at Due Forni, where they were nice enough to bump the football game for a few minutes to watch us try to treat tilapia as something trenchantly tasteful.

The episode will be repeated this coming Saturday at 5 pm.

5:00 PM ET/PT

Iron Chef Marc Forgione battles young New York-based chef Nick Curtin in Kitchen Stadium.

For the record, Marcella Ruth Schroader Curtas (d.o.b. 8.10.24 – The Official Mother of ELV) insists that we set the record straight about Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks. “I never served them to you,” she claims. If not, ELV has no idea where he developed such a loathing for the crispy little fishy fritters.

  • Well, what can I say. Janet Edna Pink Ross, (date of birth, 1/4/24, born the same year as Mrs. Curtas), and the official Mother of one der, (that’s D.E.R.), did in fact serve her dear Boy Mrs. Paul’s Fish Sticks in the years 1957-1975. At the time they were delicious, but as der grew older, he realized what went into fish sticks and he hasn’t touched one since. Even if an Iron Chef shaped Tilapia into a stick, it still wouldn’t taste like much.

  • Dear Mr Curtas,
    It’s not the subject, but what take on Due Forni?
    I’ve been there twice for Wine and Pizza. I think it’s ok untill the bill comes and then I think I got screwed..

  • We’ve already weighed in on Due Forni and consider it top notch. The reason the bill is higher than you might expect from a pizza joint is because they use upscale ingredients — from the dough to the cheese to the meats — straight from Italy, not the back of a Sysco truck. And you can taste the difference.
