I think reality cooking shows are our favorite. We are so looking forward to this one.

Maybe we should start a "Chopped" thread.

Seems the Top Chef one died.

I'm curious about it and was going to catch the first episode to see what it was going to be like

So, how did you feel about it?

I think it has some possibilities. I honestly don't understand why someone who is a vegan/vegetarian personal chef complains about fixing meat. If you don't know what to do with meat, then don't try out for a show whereby you may be required to prepare meat!

I'm entrigued by that duck that the pastry chef made. I think that impressed all the judges as well. Too bad she didn't make it.

It was cute!

And that Sandy contestant was adorable!

I actually liked how it was similar to Iron Chef with multiple ingredients. I'll probably catch it again.

We're definitely watching again. After all, this was the first show. I'm sure there will be bugs to work out.

Did you notice the cleavers lodged in the wall?

Didn't get to see the first 10 minutes, so missed the first course. But saw the rest of it. I like it thus far... with a few exceptions as the 30 minutes for them to prepare the meals went by quick. I know it is tv, but I wish they'd lengthen them a tad longer. Add more talking and seeing them prepare the meal etc. Other then that I'll try and remember to watch it next week.

Didn't notice the cleavers, will have to take a looksie next time.

It mildly irritates me that the contestants are so mismatched from the start. The vegan chef, intimidated by cooking meat, was obviously outside her element, but so was the pastry chef (stumped by duck I could understand, but flummoxed by green onions? Not exactly an exotic ingredient).

Fun to watch though.

I didn't notice the cleavers in the wall. I'll have to look for them next time.

It seems that a well-rounded chef would do better than a specialist on the show. (Yes, like the veg*n chef who didn't cook with any meat let alone octopus.)

Maybe they'll switch it up so that they have all of a certain specialty competing one night?

ETA: And I, too, would like to see a little more cooking and a little less tasting & waiting.
