Kitchen Talk with Brian the Snarky Line Cook

Cafe 641 devotees may remember the short-lived appearance of a jovial line cook alongside Chef Who Dat last season during week 5 against Tampa Bay. Signed from the practice kitchen for a single game appearance, Brian the Snarky Line Cook delivered an impressive game-day menu that still attracts praise.

In fact, the Snarky Line Cook's entire performance was impressive. He was responsible for grip-rite flooring being installed in the Cafe 641 men's room. He corralled a group of Who Dats for a post-game walk to Molly's at the Market, and sometime before hailing a taxi, thieved the undergarments off the ubiquitous Molly's mannequin above the bar.

After his narrow escape from the Jedi Chefs, Chef sought refuge in the Texas home of Brian the Snarky Line Cook, who nourished his body and soul with Creole Roast Beef, Roasted Potatoes, and two entire Smoked Chickens. Something about the explosive flavors of the Snarky Line Cook's dishes reminded Chef of a prior Bucs menu:

The Pirate-Infused Brunch Buffet. The Arrrugula Salad. The Diced Simms Spleen served over Scurvy Scallopini.

After careful consultation with the Snarky Line Cook, Chef announced a single, playoff proven dish for this weekend's visit to Tampa:

Gimpy Garcia Grillades and Grits.

It's time to get back to the familiar.

Oooohhh, color me there, Brother Chef, in spirit if not physical presence. In spite of your Game Day memories being much sharper than my own of that Tampa Bay smackdown, the experience did inspire me to new culinary heights and the rediscovery of some old Whodat roots which I'm sure prop up the family tree. I'll be flailing my own Golden Spoon here in the Plex on gameday. Faith.
