The last time we wrote about Rodney Henry, the pie-master in charge of Dangerously Delicious Pies, he had just announced his intentions to compete in the Food Network’s reality TV program. The show’s been on the air for about six weeks now, and Henry has managed to out-cook and out-charm his competition so far; he’s one of only five remaining contestants. And I hope he loses.

Hip to be Joe Squared?

1 Written by: | Monday, Mar 05, 2012 11:00am

You might want to go out for pizza tonight instead of ordering in. Joe Squared is holding no-entry fee viewing parties at both their Station North and Power Plant Live locations tonight. What’s the occasion? Joe Squared will be featured on tonight’s episode of The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.”

The episode, titled “Out of the Box,” will feature Joe Edwardsen and his Joe Squared restaurants. While “Out of the Box” makes a nice play on restaurant-served pizza versus delivery pizza, the phrase is also a philosophy befitting all that Joe Squared offers. In addition to their square pies, they provide 17 varieties of risotto, live music from local and indie bands, and art shows where they don’t take a commission cut from the artists’ sales.

Tonight’s parties at both locations will play the television segment, which airs at 10pm. No reservations are necessary and there are no admission fees.

Joe Squared-Power Plant Live will host a more elaborate follow-up party this Friday, March 9, at 9pm. “Ode to Joe,” as this party is being called, includes live performances by Oil Pan Boy and The Manly Deeds, a rebroadcast of the episode, samples of the pizza and risotto featured on the television segment, and a chance to win a hat signed by “Diners” host, Guy Fieri.

While viewers’ mouths are watering across the nation we can sit smugly with a slice of the real thing square on our lips.

Bel Air’s Flavor Cupcakery Wins Big on TV

The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars awarded a $10,000 cash prize to Bel Air’s Flavor Cupcakery, the big winners of the competitive reality show which aired on Sunday. Jason Hisley, baker and Bel Air High alum, represented the Cupcakery in the competition, which culminated in a challenge to make 1,000 cupcakes for the opening night of the New York City Ballet’s production of “The Nutcracker.”

Shelley Stannard, not originally a baker, was a fan of Bel Air’s many shops and wanted to join their ranks. She settled on cupcakes after she noticed the rising popularity of the single-serving treat and saw how she could fill a void locally.

As for Hisley’s take on the single-elimination competition: “It was insane.”
