face of buddy bees restaurant. and buddy currently as a show on the food network, buddy versus duff, its sue mo and chris go and goldman the other half of the team season 3 currently airing. that's a long way of saying, but even last row, how are your brother? hey, what's going on, dennis? hey, ben, man, i'm good brother. i want to check on your, your pod, the home pins that are incident that i know it sounds like, you know, i got a month out there, but i honestly didn't got a, i'm recovered greeley. i had 5 surgeries, a ton of physical therapy, and i got about 90 percent of my strength, fac, and a lot of my dexterity back. when about 56 weeks before we started filming, i had my 5th and final surgery and that was the one to really give me flexibility.
before that i couldn't even bend my my hand. i could, this was like, my 1st like can make so i would have never been able to do to competition and going into this competition. i really wasn't sure my capabilities. i mean, i know i wanted to compete, but i didn't know how strong i was going to be or what my endurance level was. and i going to tell you dennis, thing god. because not only did i, you know, go to a competition great. but we made some of the best cakes i've ever made in my life. and there was nothing from a hand perspective that held me back or that i couldn't do little light or touch on your front bay now. but it did a little said, you know, when i think about the irony of that, but he'd like, obviously it's your stock in trade killer baker. now tv starboard, you start up, carlos bakery and you know, that's sure that you're living,
and maybe it always your, me a grand catch the great chef at a linea. he ends up getting a taste, but you know, a tumor on it. you're just thing, my god, the word, the world visits weird things for you to go in doing some bowling. all of a sudden that happens like that. you've got immediate carpal tunnel. 5 surgeries later. so thankful you're back, brother. what a, what a great the punctuation note. yeah, and honestly, god bless the doc carlson is h s. s and my therapy team because, you know, i would never, if i show you the video then assume is pretty gory. it looks like like a holloway prop. i got a metal spike that went right through my hand. that was crazy. well, thank god, you're a good le let's, let's leave it at that. and i know a lot of fans were worried about you, but you're back in there in the squared circle with duff goldman. so i know they weren't going to green light. you baby, unless you had your chops back to notice that i am fresh,
but i got to tell you in the last 3 months i got hooked on great british baking show. i've watch 9. yeah, i watch 9 and tire seasons. i was fascinated by it. is funny, the thing i walked away with, i used to always look in the windows at pho, shaw, or something. when i was in paris and the god patricia raised so beautiful. i've lost my respect for the way because it doesn't seem half as good as half the puddings and cakes and shoe pastry they were making on the show over the 10 seasons i watch. and i'm wondering what when you 1st started, was it bread? is that your gateway, your gateway bake? no my gateway bake was definitely more. busy old world, the tie in deserts, you know, like making a l or cream puff st. clair's, all that shoe pastry pies and cookies. and, you know, i have a, a tremendous amount, a respect for, for that british breaking show. it's kind of like killing
a trance. you go into and you just sucked in and you like how to help that? i watch 16. and so that did you memorize, you know, mesmerized. so for me, it's more important the flavor and the artisan of how to make something. then even the way it looks and i know that you watch what i do with case and you're like, yeah, but a lot of what you do is more. busy decorative and creative. yeah, but it starts with the base of that, you know, old world ingredients doing it the old fashioned way we do. that's what we still do today. yeah, i'm definitely more interested in what's on the inside of the font and then i am under 400. it's, you know, it's nice, but to me it's like the the colon area equivalent sheet rock or something you got to katie. actually, i want to see those back all the place of our yeah, you get the skim code on, but i want to see what's behind there,
man. and i'm fascinated by the cake big and you know what i dug about the british bay golf is that they were still they hadn't gotten so woke or politically correct, that they still wouldn't light somebody up who screwed the poach on a particular thing. i find that artic listed, it's such a touchy feely world right now with this whole thing, but we don't have a 1st or 2nd place. there were times people would, based on their and paul hollywood guy would say he take a bike because this is horrible. and i think it shouldn't be the end of the world we, we've, we've become emotional heem, a feely acts. i found it interesting that they would still call people on up. i'm wondering on the way up, do you think you would have gotten as good as your god? if there wasn't somebody, marco pier white, somebody along the way, who just looked into this isn't cutting a kid. you gotta get better, don't you need that somewhere in your career? i definitely do. i mean, again, i was dealt crazy cards. i was 17. my dad died. i had to drop at
a high school to take over the family business. and you know, i had to go every single day and work hard guys who knew more than me. i had a humble myself, you know, pay homage, respect to them for them to teach me. and i had to train and i train them. i trained and i, you know, i had to become the best i could be what i did. and it only comes from hours and hours. you know, people always asked me all the time. like, how did you get so good for me? baking was like breathing. i don't even think about it. it's a reaction, right? i think a placement bag, it's like attached to my arm. it's like, you know, like a transform that only happens when you bake thousands and thousands of cakes and cookies and pastries. it's from ours are becoming a master, right? i want you as a piping bag. it's like, you know, roger for a whole lot of the to distract it. it's just, it is an extension of,
of your very person. hey, tell me about your dad. brag on your old man for me or tell me what it, what sort of kid that he handed off at 17. and what part did he play? and getting that kid from amniotic to 17. tell me about your dad. my dad was my best friend. my biggest hero, my life, and biggest influence by 1st day of work he brought me in. i was probably 11 or 12 years old and i said, my going to do that. i'm going to make cake. and he brought me in a bathroom and he says, i want you to clean the toilet bowl. really, i gotta clean it all. and again, i came from a very old fashioned time household where i had 4 sisters and my mom, i was like the prince. i didn't do nothing at home, you know, i was like, great, like, i mean, just it was all, you know, you can did it today. then there was a true, the little lord, valid to my mom to cut my sake to me. i was 40,
you know, i mean the world will you know? but he and he said to me why he, when i said, dad, you want me to really do this. he says, why do you think you too good for? and i said no. and he said to me, son, you got to take as much pride in clean the toilet bowl as if you were making a wedding cake. and he wanted to show the baker's that just because i was his son, i wasn't going to get special treatment. and he wanted me to know what it was like to be the guy to clean the towable and you know, what today, denison am i and i, you not, i will get down clean the total. busy today, i told my employees, there's never anything that i'd ask you to do that i wouldn't do. i never ask you to work harder than me. and, you know, you set the temple, he's to tell me when you, when you're working on a bench. he say used to say you got to do 2 cookies to everybody's one. you set the
temple, your blood's got to boil, like you said, the example of how to work, be the 1st one in and, and do what you gotta do. and he was amazing. and i actually during this season a body dove or finale cake, we did this $22.00 foot long nuclear dinosaur. right? and it was about 2000 pounds. was just wanting to stick your cakes ever made of my wife. i mean, you step back, you like, holy, like you can't even imagine you made that. and i stepped back dennis and i cried. and i thought of my dad, i said man, hey, old man can see where we don't even dreamt of doing that. in 1990 you know. busy like when, when i was learning as a young baker and just, you know, that after this injury i was able to achieve that level of cake.
was, was like, no, i thought of l men. there's actually his chain. when he died. i put it on, i never take it off. beautiful. you know what you should did? you should have did a no margin. the old man went in at the end of the nuclear dinosaur at the end of the 22 feet, right? where are the elementary canal exit signs of the property and put a molten steaming cake right there. and then your old man saying what you're too good to clean up nuclear dinosaur. buddy. a get him to go green rather exactly. say to me if it but a va, last row with us to take a break. we're going to come back and talk more about buddy versus duff. i also want to talk about some of the primal underlay of preparing food for other human beings. there's show biz, there's this, there's that. but if he did come from, obviously from the family. a those women taking care of the women, but making something about the primal exchange, preparing,
sustaining food for other human beings and how important it is. and this whole overarching scenario buddy, the last row right after this on dennis miller plus one. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have is crazy plantation, let it be an arms race on, often very dramatic development. only personally, i'm going to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk to the other stuff. and then we need to talk to someone who actually put 10 times more than that for me when i'm
in the windows and i'm the guy was completed the submission that he may need, which can go on it for me. which mobile phone bill you sent about what it was, which would be me, what it was i got to get. how did she they can put an offer me quite a bit as long food. i need to tell you that she doesn't know why would you need that? because that quote the hey folks. welcome back to that is miller bus one. have
a bless buddy. the last drop and the pause, good cake boss started in 2009 ran for 14 seasons. he's the owner of carlos baker. i think they branched out a little, but the original mother ship, i think somewhere in jersey. and he's also the face of buddy v's ristorante, and he currently has to show, you know, with duff buddy versus stuff on the food network. you know, buddy, my kid when he got out of n y, you instead of taking one of those. well, what do they call it a bridge year before you go either high school to college, a college grad school. he took a bridge here and he said he just wanted to work gigs like like larry, larry, whatever, darnell or whatever his name is. and the razor's edge, he wanted to just work a bunch regularly gigs. he was a baker for a while. and i said son, you know, he was in new york. you said it was a 1000 degrees. he was bacon bread for this restaurant down in the village and i
said, what do you get out of it, son? and he said, well listen, i just wanted to learn something substantive. and i thought what could be more substantive than making bread to be those feet other humans and having them come back in a few days later and say, well, i was a killer love, give me another one. he said it was a very primal and he find it valid exchange. you must find that your work. it must be the underlay of everything. right. 100 percent, dennis, i mean that's, that's what we do. you know what? i'm in the business of making people happy. when i see them meet one of my creations or something that i made and you see them enjoy it. it's why we do what we do. and it's funny how you said, you go back to like bread baking. we talk about it actually where my mother comes from an italy. it's a little town and pull your cold of the murder. i've been the point you've been employ. yeah. great good. of the motor every year wins the blue ribbon for the best
bread and all europe. and i'm just saying and because my mother's down, it's called pun delta motor, right? so i did an episode of keith boss, right? we will go to the bakery and this oven had to be about 1400 years old, that they were baking bread in, and they had the mother used to go. how many years is the money's yours? we don't even we, i mean, 100, say hundreds of years it goes back that yeah. mother is and they treat this thing like, like, you know, it's, it's their child this mother. yeah. and they make an a bread and we're trying to film and you know how it is and all right, we'll wait a 2nd camera. the guys like, hey, listen fargo, we don't go right now. we're going to bring going in a rose to where it's gotta go and my camera guys are all scramble. we got it. but to see the pride of what these, you know, like this quality did they made and he's cobblestones. were this big old oven. and
what happened is they stuff it, they light a fire would, would, would, would they stuff to bring all the bright, an air and then it close it in a sheal off the oxygen. so the fire goes out and it is the bread cook. and it's like the most delicious bread you've ever tasted in your life and done in such an old world way. and what happened was. busy the town, it's funny day, all the families used to have a stamp. because back then they couldn't go ambo and 500 years ago, they had no way of they couldn't buy the bakery. the bread from the bakery. they were make the bread at home and put their family stamp in it, and then bring it to a bakery and he would baker for them. wow. that was like the stickiest thing. so that's like my, like my surname miller there. there was always a cat and the thing you, you'd take the take the grain from the field that and he would grind it up the
miller for the same sort of the same deal that i love, that they couldn't afford it. so they take it to the, the center piece that of and that still is with us today. you talk about the hub of a town right there, brother. incredible, incredible. and i love the fact that the mother east, they've always got a story on like, well this was the emperor herod bins. belly button flies. and we put that in some. we put that in some oil le, more ne, overnight to now we've got this. they've always got a story about their mother. that's so beautiful. yeah. or when you get into cognac like you, they tell you about this call cognac was you know, for being 90 to king louis big that you know, it goes live a very rare vintage indeed. you know, when i was read, when you watch bread, the world around buddy, when you go over,
you were talking about the sub and i love that mental image of them having it all those years. they get those stones so hot, you think about over in india when you see them throwing those things in those big . they're almost like jars that they super heat and they throw it, they flap it onto the inside of the jar, take their non bread. i'm just absolutely fascinated by bread. if somebody said to me and listen, i love cakes. i'm a cake fan myself. but somebody said, what's it all about? and i wanted to study bacon. i think i'd have to go to bread just because it seems so adam and eve to me. know. yeah, the some could the bread is amazing. i love. right. i mean again, and luckily enough, being from new york in new jersey, we are good right here. you know what i'm saying? i mean, i don't, i don't, i don't want to let you in on a secret, but we do have the best friends in a country here. know that a lot, those slider bonds out of white man. i can think about those. and still get my mouth water and on the way, i'm away at the theatre. you stop. i know. i love it. i love it. love it. the
best boom, boom, boom. this pile him in baby, smash him down those little balls and go in or talk of the body of the last year, but he versus up as the show right now. 3rd season over at the food network. it's funny to me. they always find authentic catch up posting the shows and yet when they do their next networks, food ship thing, it's so politically correct and woke and it, you know, you sit there and watch it and they come in with those incipit career. you can say anything. you're there, your bosses, but the thing that workshop food network is real guys doing real work and make a real product. you look at guy, i know people have trouble with guy, but when i watch, guy said an extra casual makes apostrophe sam, which i know clara, wisconsin who he's proud of it and god gives him his property. that's a beautiful moment man. it's very important that the host connect with regular human beings. well nobody like guy for that. and i got to say like i know him or.
busy you know, or besides be on tv with him. he's just an awesome god. yeah. he's there kylie, you know, he's just saw through the earth and, and that's, and that's what, what i think people connect with. right. and honestly, i don't think that anybody does better on tv, and i mean, you know, like, he's that kind of guy like who you want to come to your baker. you want to feed him . you know what i'm saying? he looks like a guy you want to feed. now robert osborne on tcm was the another fully realized, guy on television, i thought what a perfect mesh of a guy these movies. and i look at guy and like i said, you see those people. they're very proud of a specific this that's been made, maybe 100 times and the hand that the guy and he does, he disengages with john, takes a big by the looks of taps that i think that's, that's their pulitzer. that's the nobel prize. that moment matters to them and he knows that he says he's smart and he's kind and natalie to them. but to people in
the community like white manor, right. like me and you know, light manner. but you know, it's some guys here in new jersey but not ever be across america does. like when you're watching diners driving the dives and you see white man on the, you know, i didn't as my spot or, you know, water a want to local places that you know, so it's a, becomes a community hero thing. now docs real people like you to the extent that i know i'm, i can say no golf, a duff. i know guy a little. but whenever i would watch bell for the best thing i ever 8 and they got to him, they usually put him in the clean up spot. and you could see that you could see those gels work and he's about to tell you about a pit p sandwich and baltimore. you can see, you know, he's getting all drooly like turner and who should know it's dripping. i guess that he knows of what he used to say which or do i know exact well as if i had to tell you of me and i became really good friends over over the course of these 3 seasons. it funny enough,
we were really probably 2 of the biggest names in baking in a world, but we never really met, you know, we never really, really sore each other. just kind of coincidentally, and then, or, you know what, i hurt my hand. he was one of the 1st people to call me and, and wish me best same guy, you know, and just just just good people. so now listen, i want to pick your brain a little bit. and i know there's a bunch of places, but man, you gotta give me a few of cakes that you dream about because i gave, yeah, i can get, i can get caught up with a cake or a good hokey. i can think of, you know, a good huggy sandwich and i can't get it out of my head. i go, i got to call in and see if they ship those. there's a cake place back in virginia that i order a christmas cake from. i can't remember the name right now. it comes with a red can with a stripe of edit is so freaking good. i'll get another one this christmas. sorry,
i'm blanking on the name. but tell me a couple cakes that you roll over in your hands. and boy, they hit the hell out of that cake. me. well, i mean, i believe it or not. i love cake. i mean, and so we did this one episode of we were doing a show was be but now be body. it was, it was what we did. i didn't like a competition show where i was looking for like the best figures and this one guy made this week, potato a cake. and again, and listen, i mean, between me and you, i try to be politically correct when you eat it. you know what i'm trying to say when you eat one thing and you're like, oh my god, this thing is delicious. and yeah, i the whole god damn piece it was like it was forget about was thing, cream cheese. i always had like this maple water cream. so like a maple butter cream, but it was
a sweep into the cake. it was almost like it had p cans on top. was like candy. it was like crack. it was so good. you just like, kept going into it and you and you couldn't, couldn't get enough of it. you ever see the movie quite show buddy. you know that movie, there's a great movie called quiz show, directed by robert redford and it's, it's, i'm telling you, if you get a chance, it's one of the most exquisite modern movies. it gets short shrift, but it's brilliant. it's about the quiz show scandals. and there's a scene where re find goes home for the weekend, his life's of maelstrom. now he's been cheating on the, he's been cheating on this quiz show. he knows that his father's grand d, the columbia university and he knows he's in trouble. he goes home, he becomes a kid, he goes in the kitchen and i can't sleep. he takes a big court glass cord of milk and a piece of chocolate cake. and it's the only sol as he has in his life at the moment, is he's eating his mom's chocolate cake, and he's cooling his head with
a cold bottle and then taking a big swig. and i often. 2 think, you know, you can derive comfort creature comforts from some things from your childhood that can make it feel safe again. and often they're of an all factory sense, tast touch, smell, stuff like that. for your percent 100 percent, there's no the i going to check the movie out but there's nothing like that. you know, i mean for me, i could i do it on sundays. like when i wake up on sunday morning, i walked downstairs and i could smell the garlic and me pulls brian up, reminds me of my mother and my grandma. now my wife does it, you know, so it sadness, damage it at family meal that, that center i did not bring families together like boot or are you replicate that vide, buddy over at the restaurant? a, tell me about that. i'm not as hip to that. i know you're from banking, you replicating that family stuff. vibe over there. 100 percent. anytime you are
