Giant Oak Branch Almost Kills Chef John! ctm magazine

We were walking under that branch literally minutes before this happened! Anyway, we’re fine, but our driveway is now significantly less navigable. Anyone know a good tree removal company in Sonoma?

    So, I wasn't saying the branch almost killed me when it fell. But, Michele and I were walking under that branch just minutes before it snapped, which was kind of scary in hindsight. Anyway, all's well that ends well! 🙂

    Are you having a drought? Because oaks sometimes react on droughts with throwing off branches.

    After all you are the Nanny McPhee of not getting crushed by a tree.

    I got behind on my Chef John. Hopefully, by now, he has that branch drying. It will make a lot of very nice briquettes.

    Turn that tree into a cayenne shaker; it failed to kill you now make it serve you

    Beavers Chef John. You have a beaver infestation. Once your trees are all gone they will move on. What ever you do don’t feed them! But if they demand food, give them McDonalds nuggets and they won’t reproduce. That’s all I’ve learned about beavers.

    What did you make with it? An appetizer or a table? Glad you both are safe : )

    Nice catch!

  • Chef Kevin Riese on May 19, 2021

    I,m so glad he is alright. What would we do without him?

  • magnumtrooper17 on May 19, 2021

    It could be cool to turn that potentially deadly branch into a charcuterie board

  • Shonda on May 24, 2021

    Well I am glad you're safe but you are after all the boss hogg of fallen logs!

    You are, after all, the Charles and David Koch, of your falling giant oak.

    Had something similar almost happen to me once, only I was driving at the time and the branch fell RIGHT behind me as I drove by. Took down some power lines too.

    😳 How bizarre!

  • Rainey Dawn on June 23, 2021

    Careful there Chef John – I don't wanna loose my favorite Chef!!

    This comment section being filled with Chef Johnisms (and the fact that I can read them all in his voice in my head) is a testament to just how long we've been watching him and how much we love him <3

    Poor tree & Poor John having to get rid of the tree branches.

  • Tom Thalon on October 13, 2021

    But you mislead people for the sake of views, with that bogus title of the video.

    I have a video called "Chef John's Dumb Down Speak Voice Almost Killed Me".
