Bauer & American Modern on the Food Network

Grill It! with Bobby Flay
Shrimp skewers and yogurt sauce.

Everyone outside of Los Angeles thinks that everyone inside Los Angeles has something or another to do with Hollywood. This is not true. I mean, we make pottery. What have we got to do with the movies? Last time I checked pottery was not integral to the film making process.

Then, of course, someone comes along and decides to ruin my point. Actually, my point was ruined years ago. Bauer Pottery has been showing up in movies as far back as the days of the Marx Brothers and Shirley Temple. In more recent decades, one might have seen Bauer pottery in movies such as The Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Short Cuts and Because I Said So (we're told that Diane Keaton is a Bauer collector).

Current television viewers have pointed out that on the appropriately-titled Modern Family, the Dunphy kitchen is fully outfitted with American Modern® pottery.

A new place to see a lot of Bauer and Russel Wright pottery is on the Food Network, specifically Bobby Flay's show Grill It!

Check your local listings or the Food Network site to find air dates and times for the show or you can catch some clips below. Click on the still images to enlarge.
