Food Fight, Results of Semi-Final 2

And the winner is...Giada De Laurentis!

No "BAM!" for Emeril in this Food Network Food Fight. This bout was relatively close compared with other recent runaway bouts. The queen of Italian cuisine took out the garlic king, Emeril Lagasse, 17-10. As I pointed out before, the big E has been looking a little paunchy lately and likely ran out of gas against his smaller, younger opponent.

To celebrate her victory, here's a link to one of Giada's holiday recipes that comes from her Dec. 17 "Everyday Italian" program. This one's for her side dish, Raffy's Turkey Sausage and Chestnut Stuffing. And, no, I don't know who Raffy is.

Giada's win sends her to our final, and it's going to be a good one. Miss De Laurentis now goes head to head with the Good Eater, Alton Brown. Mr. Brown's wins have been absolute blow outs thanks to the overwhelming show of support from Alton's Army. I'd recommend that any of you Giada fans out there send up a flare, rally your friends and family to get out and vote.

The polls are open. Voting runs from now until New Year's Eve. Let's have a good, clean fight!

Ten years ago, Emeril would have beat Giada into the ground. Eh, whatever, if he wants to retaliate, he could always cancel her show. He pretty much decides everything on that network, no? ;D

Dude, this is a freakin' bloodbath! You might have to consult the fight doctor on this. No wait, let it roll until the deadline, I want to see how badly this turns out.

I want to see what Alton's Army can do. Break 100? Break 200? Plenty of time left.
