Besides the obvious, I just love food, period, I find myself once again sucked into the world of televised cooking. Now I am not one to watch cooking tutorials or info sessions on the different kinds of cheeses, but give me a good competition like Top Chef or Cupcake Wars and I am in heaven. And while I may have absolutely no interest in sauces I have to suck out of a shrimp’s head, like one contestant did in this week’s secret ingredient challenge on The Next Iron Chef, I do get my own enjoyment out of the judge’s pleasure in eating it. And while I may never cook a quail egg or pair chestnuts and chocolate in a dessert, it’s cool to know that there are people out there who are.
My current favorite food competition show: The Next Iron Chef:Redemption
Favorite show about sweets: Sweet Genius
Recent Recipe I want to try: Brooke’s apple pie with cheese, Top Chef
Who I want cooking for me: Just about anyone on Top Chef, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, or any Food Network show really
