    You're right about the beginning. The hubby and I always argue about what the ingredient guy (good name for him!) is saying. I think he says SQU-OO-ZZA, kinda like Excuse me. He thinks it is one of the announcers' name's.

    I always thought he said "Fukusan" (like, foo-koo-san) really fast
    You would be correct, SamsquanchInSK. The announcer's name is Fukui Kenji, which is shortened to a more conversational "Fuku-san" by the floor correspondent. (Not that I'm an Iron Chef fanatic or anything...)

    This sounds like a good show, Emril or not, and I will be watching, Ive always thought a show of this premise would be great!
    You are joking, I hope.

    Well maybe it would have been great to see Ramsay beat up on Emeril. Threaten to shove something up something until he somethings a something something.

    I never watch cooking shows, so I wouldn't know a famous chef if I fell over one. But I've seen the commercials for this show and it looks pretty intriguing, so count me in.

    As a chef with 30 years experience (not world renowned), the trailers for the show leave me cold. I will watch it at least once before I pass judgement on it. However, I have to add this: If one of my employers had EVER slapped a full plate of food onto my chest because he was displeased with it, that moron and I would have had a seriously physical "discussion" about it.

    After 30 years, there is NO reason to treat one's staff in the manner portrayed in the commercials. I've run restaurants doing 8-900 covers on a slow week night and 1300+ covers on a Friday or Saturday night. No matter how busy we got, I never treated my staff, front or back of the house, like is shown in the commercials.

    Like I said, I'll watch it a time or 3 before I pass judgement. Could be there's more to the story. There usually is.

    Ahh, but you're not a famewhore, now are you Chef Dave? An integral part of this type of reality TV show is not reality per se, but putting non-actors into extreme and unusual situations with which they have little or no experience to fall back on. The fact that they'll put up with it for the "chance of a lifetime" speaks volumes to either their Buddha-like internal serenity or their soul-killing drive for fame. Personally, I've yet to see an example of the former on a reality show....

    Of course, Gordon Ramsay's also a world-class prick (as well as an accomplished brown-noser), although hearing him slam the glitterati who frequent his restaurant is funny as hell, especially since he's obviously unaware that he's also describing himself.

    I dunno about the "reality" of this show, I mean from the previews it looks just as if the chef (Ramsay?) wants to scream and scream and act like a five year old high on crack cocaine and entertain the public. From the few second preview it looked as if he just wanted to belittle the chefs for no other reason than he is their boss. Don't get me wrong, I'll be watching (school lets out!!) but it's still kinda strange. More entertainment than anything else-- I know it goes for other "reality" shows too but this just seems over the top, even to this Bachelor fan

    Could be interesting... and there's always an opportunity for a food fight!
    Simon is positively charming compared to Gordon. Gordon is very to the point and honest, like Simon, but he just has a slightly different way of saying it.

    He may seem harsh and even shocking to some viewers, at the start of the series, but by the end of it, he is full of praise and the chefs respect him for what he has taught them.

    We are currently watching him in a new series of Kitchen Nightmares, where he goes to different restaurants each week that are very doomed, dirty, not getting customers etc and he turns them around and sets the chef on the right path to making it work. Brilliant series.
