Judging cooking shows is a pretty rad gig, as you can imagine. But it’s not all glamorous; like most things involving cameras there’s a lot of magic — and waiting around — involved. Honestly though, one of the funnest sets I’ve ever been on was “Knife Fight,” which is currently airing on the new Esquire Network. I seriously scored and got to judge two episodes with Elijah Wood and Ilan Hall. Elijah is a real deal food fan, and Ilan was a hoot. Plus, as you can tell by the photo, there was beer. A lot of it.

If you didn’t get to catch the episodes on the first run, never fear! They’re replaying them on the Esquire Network quite frequently, and you can of course watch some of the exclusives online here.

Alaskan smoked salmon and bagels for brekkie. Doesn't get much fresher than this, folks.
(Cold fried) chicken of the sea...the best boat snack EVER. Also, a wonderful comfort food for when you're not catching kings and all you can hook is halibut. 🎣😬

Now I see why all the salmon swim upstream to spawn...I can't blame 'em, it's gorgeous here! ✈️🌲🍴
Well hello there, Alaska. I think you and I are gonna get along JUUUUUST fine. 🌲😍✈️ #gonefishing #howisummer #travelstoke #travelbreak #traveldeeper #TLpicks #weekendwanderer @alaskaair
Super stoked to give some ink to one of my long-time favorite historical 'hoods @travelandleisure: the Arts District. Did you know Joel Bloom Square is one of the most significant intersections for street art in America? Check out where to eat, what to drink, and what to see in this continually emerging community at link in profile.βœˆοΈπŸŽ¨β˜•οΈ#LAstory #discoverLA #artsdistrictDTLA
Well, well, well. If it isn't the most delightfully refreshing post-workout sip ever! Loving this vibrant blood orange and tangerine agua fresca almost as much as running into @jlims @bstaqueria after my swim! πŸŠβ˜€οΈπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
A hotel pool where I can actually swim laps AND there are epic Art Deco accents to gaze at while doing the backstroke? Sign me up! No really...sign me up for a membership, @laathleticclub. Swear it has nothing to do with the cocktail bars by Aiden Demarest downstairs. πŸ˜‰πŸŠπŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
Sweet, sweet victory! Well done, America! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ #equalityforall #lovewins #dscolor
Super inspired learning more about @turkey_home @swissotelthebosphorus over this shockingly delicious paella. Turkey has been tip top of my travel bucket list for some time, and I hope to book a trip sometime soon. Next time maybe I'll be posting pics of pide, knafeh, and lokum! πŸ˜πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·πŸ΄
I feel like I've been living in @Delta terminals as of late, which ain't such a bad thing, especially at JFK, where there's a @shakeshack! Some day I hope to get up on that Sky Lounge game, but for now this'll do JUSSSSST fine πŸ˜‰πŸ”πŸŸ
A little @vacationing music and Greece #gopro action to pump you up for your weekend! Time for sunshine and seafood! πŸŒŠβš“οΈπŸ™ŒπŸΌ
If you're like me, the second you saw those cheap flights to Tokyo you JUMPED for joy and booked immediately! To help with your planning, I did my first piece for @travelandleisure magazine on the essential dishes to try while you're there, how to pronounce them, and where to find the best. Super excited to be contributing to this incredible publication...between this and Japan, two big goals are checked! βœˆοΈπŸ‡―πŸ‡΅βœ… Check it out at the link in profile!  #tasteintravel #eeeeeats #TLpicks #eater
Honey, I'm HOOOOME! And while I was gone, @nicole_rucker (formerly of @GjustaBakery) moved into the 'hood @cofaxcoffee. These donuts, like WHOA!!! Girl, stay a while, will ya? β˜•οΈπŸ©πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #eeeeeats #dineLA #eater #fravorites
πŸ“· @borderfreetravels spending my last two winters in Colombia and Oaxaca, a month each, I highly recommend going to both places, especially for the incredible food but mostly for the people. Some of the best adventures take place way off the beaten path. Cheers to finding some place that makes you feel that magic… Thanks for following along on my adventures! #BFTswap
πŸ“· @BorderFreeTravels with another South of the Border summer travel rec: Colombia. We rode horses in the rain up to this little coffee farm high in the hills of the tiny town Jardin, about three hours from Medellin, owned by the cousin of our guide. There's no better way to experience local culture than a heart warming home cooked meal like the one he prepared, which ended with a local cup of potent java to fuel our ride back down. #BFTswap
πŸŽ₯ @BorderFreeTravels: I recently visited Dominica -- aka The Nature Island -- with other film makers from around the globe to create interactive videos of our experience exploring waterfalls, beaches, whale watching, horseback riding, and drinking heaps of fresh coconut water. The island is an incredible place to soak up some culture, and find your own serenity. #BFTswap
πŸ“· @BorderFreeTravels here again, this time from Medellin! Sometimes all you need is a smile and a πŸ‘πŸΌ to communicate. This was certainly the case with this awesome fruit vendor in downtown Medellin. One fruit you shouldn't miss when you’re in Colombia is lulo, a little orange native to the Andes which tastes like a pineapple. His were delish! πŸŠπŸπŸ‘πŸΌ#BFTswap
πŸ“· @BorderFreeTravels It’s always a real balancing act when you’re on the road, wanting to indulge but not completely overdoing it. I say just go alllll in in #Oaxaca and try everything you see! Some of my favorite food memories were from the markets and street stalls tasting the streetside elotes, mole, tlayudas, huitlacoche quesadillas, grasshoppers, atole, cacao and chiliquilles… I could go on forever. #BFTswap

    I just saw something about this on tv. It spoke the same things you wrote about.

    I go to school in Canada and we just now are learning about this in the classroom.
    Thanks for helping me with the conclusion of my report.
    Thanks for the outline of television stuff.
    I definitely think that cable tv is going to go away. Or at least have to
    change with the times.
    Internet tv is definitely the wave of the future. As internet speeds get quicker,
    people will be watching their tv shows on sites like this.

    What do you know about this? I doubt there’s a lot more to the subject
    I was just watching this on PBS yesterday.
    They discussed the same things you wrote about.

    When selecting memorabilia or general purpose utility items as gifts, avoid
    items such as perfume and religious or superstitious items.
    Struggle no more, Canadian company Geekware have a wide
    range of irresistible gifts that geeks will give their PCs for,
    and what’s more, they’re all environmentally friendly.
    The next thing you need to do is to customize these t-shirts with your company logo.
