    Stinky tofu? really? That was an extremely hard ingredient to use. Even Andrew Zimmern can't eat that stuff.

    I'm excited this show is back, I really enjoyed last season. I'm anxious to see how Chef Freitag from Chopped likes being judged instead of doing the judging.

    I saw it and enjoyed it although I have no real favorites or non-favorites just yet. I'll admit the ingredients for the elimination challenge bothered me. I have a moderately sophisicated palate, but there were only one or two that I would even consider tasting. I'm looking forward to seeing some really delicious dishes.

    The elimination challenge was truly a challenge with those exotic ingredients. While I realize this is a competition and someone had to be eliminated, I thought it was kind of unfair to judge them on trying to create dishes out of ingredients they had never heard or or used before. How much training to chefs get when they train to become chefs? Do they ever work with such exotic ingredients??

    I understand they wanted to how they would work out of their comfort zone, but there is a big diffference between eel (fish) and bugs!

    Hadn't sen this show. Does this mean Mario Batali is gone from the show? He was one of my favorites. I could totally do without Michael Symon.

    I really enjoyed it, many talented chefs. The off the wall ingredients bothered me as did Appleman. Strikes me a bit jerky. And how could that one chef not know Eel?

    I hope not! I really like him! What about Morimoto? He is getting older and has been doing this since he was a young pup.

    I do like Michael Symon though. His laugh is very contagious to me!

    I would have preferred a nice lamb chop, some broasted potatos and a side order of stewed tomatoes, thank you very much. There is no way in heaven or hell that I'm eating unborn chicken eggs with attached fallopian tubes.
