We didn't care for this at all. I added more spices but it was still a bland, boring dish.

This is like Mexican fideo. Just replace the chicken broth with tomato sauce and tomato bullion and a sprinkle of sugar.

I'm an Australian and think Chef John's voice and accent are just great! Knowledgeable, certain and humourous. I hope he looks as huggable as he sounds. sounds

The voice doesnt bother me in the least....the chicken broth does! A vegetarian option?

You guys critiquing Chef John's voice are ridiculous - he sounds like a normal guy, and he always makes me laugh - love him and his recipes.

Thanks for the great demos! Love to learn. BTW, I agree with Drew as far as the voice sometimes, but I don't call it whining, I think it sounds condescending, it's when your voice gets higher at the end of a sentence. A voice couch might help. Just a wee change would help sooo much. That said, I LOVE learning to cook from you. You give the best detailed information.
