I love food competitions. I watch them all: Chopped, Iron Chef, Sweet Genius, you name it. Thanks to Influenster, I just found out about a new one, The Taste, with a very interesting concept: The judges base their opinions on just one bite.
Another fun twist that appeals to me: The competitors aren't just professional chefs...they include home cooks and food bloggers, so it'll be interesting to see how they all stack up against each other.
I was beginning to think there wasn't anything new to be had in the world of competitive cooking, but I have high hopes for this. I've watched several episodes, and found them all seriously worth the time. You can catch full episodes online here if you need to catch up. There's some serious roadblocks tossed at the competitors along the way...no spoilers, of course, but some of these ingredients are insane.
I'm very excited...I know where I'm going to be on Tuesday nights from here on out. If you want to join me: ABC at 8/7c...I'll provide the wine.
