    The Taste (ABC Tuesday 8 P.M.)

    About The Show - The Taste - ABC.com

    One blind spoonful could change everything on ABC’s “The Taste.” This new cooking competition show is literally all about taste.

    Sixteen competitors, from pro chefs to home cooks, whip up dishes attempting to impress four of the world’s most notable chefs. The catch is all the dishes will be judged in a blind taste test. In this pressure-packed contest, the taste of a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing.

    “The Taste” features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre and restaurateur Brian Malarkey. Each of the four culinary superstars and “Taste” mentors – Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey – will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call as they vie to create the best tasting dish.

    In each episode, the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be eliminating.

    I am looking forward to this. Bourdain has been very critical of food reality shows.

    A lot of the dishes seem very creative.

    Nigella is my long-time girl crush. I'll be watching just for her.

    I love anything Tony does, so I enjoyed this. Tuna and lamb seemed to be overdone by a lot of the hopefuls, but there were some really creative dishes. I was surprised the dessert spoon girl made it through based on chocolate cake alone!

    I enjoyed this very much. I love the premise. It should be about the taste. While they're always crowing on at Top Chef about inovation and being challenged IMO that's ridiculous. First and foremost it should just taste great.

    I watched and enjoyed it. I'm not sure I believe that it is 100% unscripted because I noticed that the order of the judges showing their votes changed to allow those who voted "for" to be shown last for a lot of them. But, I think it's a good premise and that we'll see some personality from the judges. Most of the contestants seem okay, too, at least for now, with one or two exceptions.

    Am looking forward to watching this (recorded). I'm sure it'll be good for awhile...until it becomes so scripted like so many of the shows we loved....and don't anymore.
