Anyone else surprised to see Alton Brown reduced to tears?
I'm glad they green-lighted a pilot from both of his finalists, because they both were as good as the finalists picked from the other two, if not a shade better. Although, really, the only one who really turned me off was Nikki. I don't see how you can build an entire show just around grilling, but perhaps that's because where I live, we get a lot more non-grilling weather than grilling weather. Nikki always seemed just a little defensive to me.
Sweet corn mac and cheese? I'd like to see a recipe for that--but I think that's kind of my problem with cooking shows. I really just want the recipe. I don't need all the rest of the song and dance, so I'm better off with cookbooks.
