Alright, we’ve been watching for seven weeks. And for what? To see fluffed egos, hear foul mouthed cooks cuss like it’ll inflect magic on the food and discover that it’s hard to like these people. But, that’s just my take. I really hope that the producers take more care in choosing chefs next season.
My favorites at this point? And favorites is a term I use very, very loosely — just so you know.
- Dale. He’s grown on me, and I might go so far as to say I like him and his cooking style.
- Mark. Love the accent. And he’s been generally good natured.
- Antonia. She seems to have good food sense. Plus she’s a single mom. Go girl!
- Stephanie. Gotta give it up for the girl from Connecticut.
Chefs I want to see go HOME:
I am still undecided on Richard and Nikki.
On to the episode . . . Oh. The soup. Spike is still talking about the darned soup he wanted to make. Maybe now that he has, he can find something else to talk about. I know, as a cook, it must be hard since there is such a shortage of topics, foods and ingredients . . . snark.
Moment of least class de jour–because every episode has to have one–”Hey, I really know how to work a sack, dude.”
Oh, the joys . . .
