A new food show called The Taste premiered on ABC, 01/22/2013 and will be showing on Tuesdays 7/8 central. I watched the first show and was very pleased with what I saw.
The Taste features 4 judges…
It kind of reminded me of the Voice, but with food. The 4 judges get to try a sample that has been prepared by a prospective contestant, wether they be a professional chef or a home cook. After trying the sample, the judges decide if they want to add this contestant to their team and after interviewing them they let the contestant choose any of the judges that liked the dish and pressed the yes button.
It was very intriguing to see how many home based cooks were being selected over accomplished professional chefs. Some of the comments by the judges regarding these “professional” chefs were pretty amusing. In general in seemed the professionals would really over do the dish in an attempt to wow the judges which usually turned against them.
I will be interested to follow this show and hopefully add it to the extensive list of food shows we watch on a regular basis. It looks like its going to be a lot of fun to see how the judges assemble thier teams and where they go from there.
