Alan Richman Takes Eric Ripert to Costco

ripert-richmanIn what he hopes is "the first installment of the next great cooking show," Alan Richman made the video "Avec Alan" over at GQ. Riffing on Avec Eric, Richman takes Eric Ripert to Costco, a place that "epitomizes what Westchester dining is all about." Ripert, of course, is "freaked out" and depressed: "In that store, nothing looks like it's coming from planet Earth." Ripert goes as far as refusing to push the shopping cart, reasoning, "Yes, I know I am being a spoiled brat, but for me it is an acceptance of the system." The writeup is more in depth than the video.
