Talking Turkey Goes Digital
from the gobble-gobble-2.0 dept
With Thanksgiving tomorrow, today’s papers feature a few different kinds of obligatory stories: those with last-minute cooking advice, and those about how purveyors of last-minute cooking advice are adopting technology to help solve peoples’ turkey turmoil. Perhaps what’s most amusing in this story, though, is that the WSJ compares paid services to chefs at local restaurants who simply give out free advice to people who call in, and wonders if they’re hurting their businesses by giving away their advice and recipes. However, the chefs they talk to clearly don’t work in the music business: they say they’re building a relationship with clients, and promoting their businesses. Separately, Butterball’s venerable turkey helpline has started podcasting, but given the apparent popularity of online videos covering practical topics, perhaps they’d been better off buying a turkey channel on YouTube and using videos to share their advice.

erm… thought it was about Turkey, the country
Although this article was quasi-pointless, I also found it very entertaining. The music industry should talk to people like these chefs maybe then they would pull their heads out of their asses
copyright the advice
the chefs are dumb… dont’ they know they could patent their custom method for preparing a turkey and charge everyone money for using their method? Or better yet…. wait a few years and then hire lawyers and sue a bunch of people and settle out of court for millions of dollars. Obviosly these chefs aren’t very smart.
hehehehehehe… just kidding
Too Bad AT&T Wireless isn’t still around. I remember when I had service with them you could get cooking types text-messaged to your mobile by dialing #TURK
EY on the keypad. It was the ButterBall Turkey Hotline and it was a $1.75 per use but kind of neat.
To Quote Jermy Hotz…Canada should invade Turkey and call it Chicken
Re: internet turkey
it was suppoed to be about the bird. whoever talks about the country is a tard. also i think it is stupid that the chefs are complaining about something that isn’t patened. the music people should be able do what they want with somehting that isn’t patened.
Re: Re: internet turkey
Where does it say they are bitching about giving recipes away?!
“who simply give out free advice to people who call in”
“they say they’re building a relationship with clients, and promoting their businesses”
From what I see, they are giving the info out to build a client basis.
So how bout that tard status huh? Try reading and get a sense of humor n00b.
So…if Russia should ever attack Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?
Re: just curious
LMAO…I would assume it would help
Do Germans Cook Hornets?
Are there any German chefs who share recipes for cooked hornets?
I ask because when I went to the Grimminger pastry shop this morning in Heidelberg (they are a popular chain with big orange neon signs, present at every train station), hornets were flying all over the pastries. I pointed to one, and the cashier girl ignored it, even when one flew right in front of her eye while she was looking at me. I’ve never seen a hornet’s nest inside a bakery, much less employees who ignore it. Do Germans have a custom of eating hornets with breakfast?
