    Re: The Taste (ABC Tuesday 8 P.M.)

    This show is a train wreck.

    The set hurts my eyes and I can't imagine how they cook in those screamingly bright backlit kitchens. I can't distinguish one team from another by the teeny tiny colored tabs on their aprons. Why can't they wear team-colored aprons that say "Ludo" or "Bourdain" etc. on them? This alone would make the show much easier to watch and enjoy.

    The Ludo/Malarkey rivalry is confusing. What does Ludo have against Malarkey? Ludo is rude to everyone, though. Lucky for everyone he's incomprehensible. Great teeth, though.

    The pods that the chefs hide in - ridiculous. This isn't about cooking on the Starship Enterprise.

    I think the whole format is flawed as well. Once they've seen who are the best & worst, it's no longer a blind taste test and they know whose team member they're sending home.

    And the editing to make it more dramatic - maybe they need to do that because without it, there's nothing exciting happening.

    Yet I watch and I get hungry . . .

    I agree with a lot of other criticisms of the show. I wish the judges made their decisions about who had the winning dish and who was going home before they found out who cooked which dish. What's the point of doing a blind tasting if they reveal who cooked what before the judging?

    Anthony is the only chef I had heard of prior to this show and I can't say I'm a fan of his. Malarkey seems too juvenile and Ludo is too uptight. Anthony and Nigella are the only judges I like.

    I have a feeling this show isn't going to be renewed for a second season. It's quite a snoozefest. It's one of those shows I listen to while playing games on Facebook and waiting for good shows to start.

    It has been a "filler" show for me too. Its not bad, but its not an "event"

    Interesting article about Nigella:

    Nigella Lawson: Our hottest cook spills the beans on cracking America, THAT dress and horsemeat | Mail Online

    Could she, I wonder, imagine a world without food – or the odd glass of wine? She grimaces and admits having a hangover after drinking too much wine the night before with fellow TV chef Ludo Lefebvre.

    The challenge was sandwiches this week - both rounds.

    Anthony finally lost a team member (Mia) - who had to be the most stubborn, ornery person there. When you have several judges telling you that you burnt the bread, apologize and explain what you TRIED to do. She was miserable and made the decision that much easier for them.

    Huda (Nigella) was a definite goner. Chicken pesto? that was not going to fly - especially when I saw her put full breasts in the pan with little to no seasoning. ???? that was just a disaster.
    So Nigella is down to just one team member, who did have one of the winning dishes.
    Diana was also in the bottom and was humble tonight - wowow - who knew that was possible?
    The guy with immunity (argh - Tony?) was also in the bottom and surprisingly he also was somewhat humble and listened.

    The show is a time waster for me but it has it's moments

    Next episode they're going to make cereal. The ingredients will be milk and a choice of Lucky Charms, Cheerios, Fruit Loops, or Frosted Flakes. Some people decide to mix more than one cereal together to show their expertise.


    Well, I'm watching the episode now.
