I watch many food reality tv programs such as Top Chef, The Next Iron Chef, Chopped, you get the idea. I love to cook when I have the time. I’m not sure I understand my obsession with watching these shows where they cook food I would never cook let alone eat. The food just isn’t my cup of tea although most of the time it looks pretty and sometimes I get ideas.
I find the judges on most of these types of shows extremely picky. When I hear that a dish just didn’t come together I have to ask if they expect it to give them an orgasm or something. The dishes look beautiful and ingredients don’t seem outrageous.
Often you hear about seasoning issues in chef’s dishes. Often salt is the culprit. I want to see one of these chefs have the balls to put a bottle of salt on the table with their dish and tell them to season it there damn selves. I can understand not enough other seasonings, but salt &/or pepper I mean come on! Every persons tolerance for salt & pepper are different. I think thats why a restaurant has them on the table for you.
I think some of these chef judges really need a home cooked meal. A real one. One where there are little kids running around with boogers coming out of their noses.
Many of the chefs claim they are not bakers and make excuses when expected to make a desert. Do you people watch tv? Do you bother to watch the show your apply for, if it already exists?
Newsflash: learn how to bake at least enough to save your own ass.
I feel for the chefs tho. It has to be tough to have their job in real life and even tougher to be in these competitions. They bust their asses, some receiving nothing in the end. The time they are given half the time adds so much more pressure. If I had to cook under that much pressure to make dinner I would throw out my pots & pans and refuse to cook. I guess that’s what makes them professionals and me just a home cook. I can take some criticism but more often than not I think I would run away into a corner and cry like a big baby.
