Anyone who rhymes kimchee with confit and Colicchio with carpaccio gets extra points in my book.
I sat that as a thank you to the writers of The Simpsons, since I see just now on the Twitterverse that I missed a good episode Sunday night. The Food Wife must have been right up my alley, featuring a guest appearance by Mario Batali (love!) as well as this very funny song, The Food Blog Rap. It’s a takeoff on Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ Empire State of Mind, a song I do have on my iPod. Now I’ll have this one, too.
Food Network fans and foodies everywhere, grab those headphones and enjoy The Simpsons’ Food Blog Rap:

Here are the lyrics:
I’m throwing down mad foodie game, knowing all the chefs’ names
Rolling into K-Town for be bim bap and bulgogi
The hotties I chill with are sriracha and kimchee
Housemade terrines, my ducks are always confit
I braise with a billion more BTUs than I need
I cook a Thanksgiving turkey in a trash-bag, sous vide
Afumatoare in Brindisi Fed-Exes me salami
Don’t scoop me gelato unless it’s got umami
I’ll be “Frank” like Bruni, “Ruthless” like Reichl “Wiley” like Dufresne, and when I take the mike, I’ll Rhyme about radicchio, criticize Colicchio
Every pub is gastro, and all my beef carpaccio
