So, I'm kinda into this new show called "The Taste". It's on ABC on Tuesday nights at 8|7c. Or you can be like me and watch it on On Demand whenever you feel like it.
I love a good food challenge show and that's exactly what this is. If you're into shows like Top Chef or Chopped, I'm sure you'll enjoy this new show too. The premise of this show is an exhilarating one-hour cooking competition that puts all of the culinary competitors - from pro chefs to home cooks -- to the fire with four of the world's most notable masters of the food world who will judge their creations based on a blind taste test. The show started with 16 people and now they're down to 12.
The stars and judges are chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre and chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey. These four culinary experts and mentors will each coach a team as they vie to create the best tasting dish in a state of the art kitchen. In each episode the groups will face team challenge and pick one persons spoon to face judgement. Last week's theme was wine pairings. The winning spoon's chef from the team challenge them gets immunity from elimination during the individual challenge. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors' dishes blind -- with no knowledge of whose creation they're sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be sending home. So, they risk sending home members of their own teams!
