So B and I have turned into Food Channel addicts. And for some reason, CHOPPED is on every single time. Seriously.
ABC (I used to be a regular LOST and Grey’s Anatomy fan) debuted a primetime cooking show. Interesting! I’ve always wondered if a cooking show could compete with something like American Idol. But anyway, it’s called “The Taste.” Think “The Voice” but for cooking! Haha.
So anyway, the Taste started out with a bunch of chefs cooking–they got split up in 4 teams ala “The Voice.” Now they’ll compete over 8 episodes for the ultimate prize. $100K and a Prius! Hurray! (To watch episodes, click here: http://abc.tv/Z3jimp)
So far, I really like the show! It’s like Food Network but a bit more jazzed up. I like the judges more (I’m thinking of Chopped right now) and I think the concept is interesting. I don’t think I’ve seen a cooking show presented like this anyway. I guess the only thing is that the “auditions” were okay. In that case, singing people beats cooking people any day. (Maybe it’d be different if I could smell the food. *sigh*)
I also like it because I feel like I can actually *make* some of the food that they make! On Chopped, they cook with some….super interesting…..combinations…..
So if you’re like me with nothing to do on a Tuesday night, take a break from Chopped and give the Taste a try. Lmk what you think!
