A new Chopped All Stars started last night. The first round was two chefs from the Food Network (Jeff the Sandwich King & Sunny Anderson) and two from the cooking channel (I don't remember their names). Next Sunday it's 4 "mega chefs" including Elizabeth Faulkner. Then 4 judges (both Amanda Freitag & Alex Guarnaschelli are competing). Then 4 celebrities - Joey Fatone, Laila Ali, Johnny Weir (that's a joke - we saw on Rachel vs Guy that he can't cook anything with fat in it!), and Judy Gold (I have no idea who she is).
Judy Gold is a comedian. She was on a cake cooking contest show that the bakers/decorators had to make a cake of her life size. All I remember is she is very tall.
Yes that was the show, but I still have no idea what it was. :)
Did anyone watch the "viewer's choice" episode of Chopped last night? Yikes, the food that was chosen! I wouldn't want to eat most of it, I don't think the judges wanted to either.
oooh i saw that last night! omg, that nasty fruit they had in the first basket which they said smells like rotten meat, along with something like lime jello? ugh! all of the ingredients were really gross. one contestant complained about the viewers picking out such food. it was kind of funny in a sick way, though.
The four celebrities one will be hilarious - I'm hoping Weir is out first then the other three will be fun to watch I think. Fatone is a good chef, I liked Ali's attitude and Gold - if she can tone down the foul language here (she's funny but a little bit crass in this area), will have some wonderful zingers.
