2. Now we know why he's been training that new guy...
I noticed a couple months ago he introduced a new guy who will no doubt be the future Mr Food. He's been working on every show next to Ginsburg.
I met Mr Food about fifteen years ago at a food event in Cleveland. I was trying to scam him out of an autographed picture signed: "Ooh... Johnny's kitchen is sooo good". I was going to hang it in my kitchen. It was satirical because everyone knows I can't cook, but he was too sharp for me, and wouldn't do it. He did however, sign a picture postcard with that phrase, and that was stuck to my fridge for years.
He confessed to me that he was a diabetic at the time as well, so I'm glad he went on for so long as he did.
