On Monday, John McCain took a detour from the typical campaign trail to make his special baby back ribs recipe on Rachael Ray's daytime show. Here are some interesting things I learned from watching him demonstrate his signature dish on TV:
- Apparently, the potential president gets his ribs from Costco. Rachael Ray seemed surprised: "I've been to Costco, [but] I just didn't picture you two with a cart!"
- To my surprise, McCain seemed very confident in his cooking skills. "Is he always this take-charge?" the host and chef asked Cindy McCain. Her answer was a definitive "yes."
- The senator even had some good tips, such as always grilling bone side down, which helps to cook the meat from the inside out.
The segment was a fun way to get to know the candidate outside of his usual element. To check out the clip of McCain cooking with Ray, read more.
Do you feel like you learned anything different about him? If you tuned in to watch Michelle Obama cook with Paula Deen this past Saturday, whose cooking did you prefer?
