I've not seen that one but I'd bet I'd like it

For those who don't watch ...

One (Chopped) involves professional cooks that are handed random ingredients and asked to make something out of it on the spot.

Its a derivative of "Ready, Set, Cook" (which itself is a derivative of the British show, "Ready, Steady, Cook"

The other (URS) is a cooking contest for home cooks.

I don't think they have much in common.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.
