[Sca-cooks] The Taste

I think some of the blandness is due to missing all the histrionics that go into the prep, cooking and plating.  That's where some of the best fun comes in on the other shows (esp involving canned haggis). 

I think the pro chefs are trying too hard to impress the judges, and over reaching.  They have more to prove than the home chefs.

I did as well. I was a little disappointed, partially in that there was
very little of the enthusiastically supportive remarks one sees on "The Voice"
 (its obvious model) and remarkably few really successful contestants.

The  mayonnaise did not, as the French say, "take" for me. I still enjoy
Gordon  Ramsay's cooking shows more. But I'll probably give it a few more

Meanwhile, we should do a write-in campaign to get them to do an
all-medieval menu. :)
