    Pasta e fagioli (beans) and pasta e ceci (chick peas), are different. As a child, I complained when my mom made either of them. I've grown to like the one with chick peas, but still can't stomach the one with beans.

    I am watching the 2nd episode now and Graham makes me want to turn it off. Not sure what it is about him but I just don't care for him at all.

    Interesting - I never heard that before. Regional perhaps? I seem to recall hearing the names used interchangeably.


    I quite liked this week's episode. Much more than the HK finale that's for sure. I really liked the focus on the egg dishes and hearing the chef-judges' comments about them. I also liked seeing the different types of egg dishes the contestants came up with and which ones went over well and not so well with the judges. Frankly, I was quite surprised at some of the eliminations. I thought the hispanic girl who had been sent home to recook during the auditions was going to make it through. And GR has found his whipping boy hasn't he - that poor kid who had originally tried to do his version of seafood bouillabaise. I felt so bad for him when Gordo was in his face about the lumpy potatoes.

    And finally, what the heck happened to the special needs mom contestant? I know I saw her make it through the onion chopping challenge but I didn't see her at all during the egg challenge?????

    I am really liking this show although I do not like the little judge. Not sure what his name is but he seems like a snob!

    The mom with the special needs children was eliminated in the egg challenge. It was a brief glimpse of her as they announced that a trio (of which she was a member) had been eliminated; she got no individual face time.

    Thanks prhoshay - I must have blinked and missed that. Sad to see her go and would have liked to have seen what all 3 of the eliminees's dishes were.

    I totally agree, because I was curious about what she made that got her offed, but I guess they didn't think it was time-worthy. I usually don't remember contestants, but I did remember her.

    Re: MasterChef

    I like this show a LOT better than Hell's Kitchen

    HK really bores me..it is so wrapped up in the idea of running a restaurant kitchen and getting meals out on "time"....might as well watch other boring jobs...here is the mailperson putting the mail in the mailboxes "on time"..
    here is a clerk at the Gap hanging clothes on the rack etc

    MasterChef is more about making an individual dish, more like Top Chef in a way...but with ingredients and dishes I might/could possibly make myself

    I like the fact that so far they have been able to showcase their own best dish and I liked the egg challenge

    Much better than watching them on the "line" in Hell's Kitchen
