The Daily Meal: Funniest Jimmy Fallon Food Moments

Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 05:01 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

Nobody puts the funny into food better than Jimmy Fallon. Back in March 2011, The Daily Meal crowned him “Late Night’s Culinary King,” and since then, the comedian continues to up the epicurean ante.


During his Late Night career, the hilarious host has invited countless culinarians and industry celebs to cook, mix cocktails, and promote their latest projects on his show. From whipping up dishes with culinary heavy hitters including Mario Batali, Giada de Laurentiis, and Bobby Flay; to hosting fierce Fried Chicken Battles, Martini Races, and Burger Cook-Offs, the funnyman has delivered highly-entertaining food moments to viewers, week after week.

My latest piece on The Daily Meal honors Jimmy’s Late Night reign with a collection of 20 culinary clips. Check out Fallon’s funniest food-focused moments here.

This year marked the 31st annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, America’s premier and most prestigious culinary event. And I couldn’t have been more honored or excited to be heading out West with the KitchenAid team to attend my very first Classic. With eager anticipation and my appetite in tow, I made my way from Manhattan to Aspen, Colorado for three jam-packed days of food- and fun-filled festivities.

It was another thrilling year for the New York City dining scene, and last night, Time Out New York held their annual industry awards honoring the best new restaurants, bars and chefs. “It’s been an incredibly exciting year for food and drink,” shares Mari Uyehara, TONY’s Food & Drink editor. “Sensational new restaurants opened on Madison Avenue and in the West Village, but also in Bushwick, Flushing and Red Hook. It also brought national superstars, celebrated cookbook authors and daring upstarts to town. Our roster of winners reflects the astonishing range of drinking and dining experiences in New York City right now.”

Taking over the spacious Stephen Weiss Studio, the 2013 Food & Drink Awards paid tribute to the city’s culinary finest in a grand celebration attended by top toques, restauranteurs, mixologists and industry insiders. Before the winners were announced, guests sampled bites from nominated spots, including L’Apicio, Pork Slope, Dear Bushwick and Gran Electrica, and sipped prosecco, Stella Artois and Frederick Wildman cocktails—all while eagerly anticipating the results.

TONY’s food-obsessed readers voted for their faves out of 40 nominees to determine ten winners in the Readers’ Choice categories—top honors included Best New Restaurant (The NoMad), Chef of the Year (Daniel Humm), Best New Italian Spot (Perla), Best New Cocktail Bar (Pouring Ribbons) and Best New Bakery (Ovenly). Additionally, ten Critics’ Picks were presented, in aptly named categories ranging from Best Big-Pimp’ Brooklyn (Blanca) and The New Nordic Wonder (Aska), to The Same Same But Different Award (Pok Pok NY) and The High Rolling Stoner Sushi Award (Chez Sardine). You can check out the full list of this year’s winners here.
