At the Food and Wine and Rum Festival in Barbados, we spoke to chef and proud Texan Tim Love. When asked his opinion of the "vegetables are the new meat" movement, the tequila-guzzling cowboy was quick to respond: "I don't understand movements. The media makes them up. People have always eaten vegetables. I've always had a tomato garden; everyone in Texas has tomato plants. There's nothing new there." Love also believes the most important culinary skill a home cook can have is patience: "30-minute meals don't exist."
Finally, Love shared some exciting news: this May he'll be starring in a brand-new show on the Food Network. Although he couldn't reveal specific details, the competition series will be called Best in Smoke and was recently filmed in, ironically, New York City. Love will participate as a judge. Are you a fan of the manly Love? Will you watch his show?
