This blog is dedicated to spreading the truth about Jack Scalfani, a child abuser and racist who has run up modest celebrity on the internet through his “Cooking with Jack” youtube channel. For a long but by no means exhaustive list of what Jack has done, please see this post.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone so proud of something someone else did.
I mean really, all Jack does is ride on the coat tails of others, so it’s not surprising. But he’s really milking Robert Brewer for all that he’s worth, isn’t he. Dear reader, pay attention also to the aching resentment of Tammy in this video. Aside from that face that as typical suburbanites they’ve vastly underestimated the amount of work that goes into keeping chickens, what exactly are Tammy and Junior meant to do here? Stand around outside, it looks like, whilst Jack films his haggard, disgusting face in Extreme Close Up.
I do have a soft spot for gardening, for things that bloom and grow, so I’m tempted to give these videos a pass just because they warm my heart. Sure, I don’t particularly need composting explained to me (Australia!), but actual competency is rare and wondrous where Jack is concerned. Then again, ruthlessly taking advantage of Robert Brewer and bungling the production as bad as Jack does makes what content there is all the more difficult to stomach. I mean, “Our” garden? Really, Jack, what is it that you’ve contributed here? The clear progression of plants that grow is also difficult to follow given his faulty naming conventions. Further distracting is Jack’s presenting a front for the audience and Robert Brewer: He only mentions prayer when he knows other people will look fondly on him for it.
Faced with actual competency in a Cooking With Jack video it’s easy to give it a pass, but even then Jack manages to make his own particular brand of terrible shine through.
