I can cook for 2-4 people like nobody's business...possibly handle a party of about 30ish but on the Barbie. Any more than that....fuggetaboutit. I see your point with the ingredients, but the cooking times have changed dramatically. Also, a "pinch of salt" is now what?....a pound?

Yes, the caterer should have been in his own on that one.

I wasn't going to watch this one but I might have gotten hooked after all. I imagine it is very frustrating for IC to watch. This is a show with almost nothing to do with picking the best cook. It is all about picking a successful TV personality and the two permanent judges make no bones about it.

I'll probably hang in there to root for JAG.

Did any of you see this last night? Jag crying like that? I have to be honest here... Jag needs to go to cooking school and toughen up his skin a bit. I graduated with high academic honors from Le Cordon Bleu Chicago. I got TORN APART on a weekly basis by chefs I was paying. They told him his food was boring and lacking flavor. Vinegar as a sauce? Huh? What did he expect?

Boy oh boy. FoodTV is scaring me these days. I'm praying that we won't have to be subjected to a Jag show.
Amy Finley RULES!

I just read Jag's profile. He went to the NY Restaurant School. Hmmm...

I lost all respect for Giada and Alton these past few shows. Just because they are judges, doesn't mean they have to be rude about critiquing the contestants.

bingo and Giada only makes the same few foods on her show anyway. her repetorie >SP? is to me,very limited. Plus, I've made a few of her things, a couple cookie recipes, that did not turn out. With Alton, his famous choco chippers, are not good.

simply put, I won't be subjected to a Jag show, I won't watch it. His cussing fit turned me off a couple of weeks ago anyway. << classless

This is my first season of the show.
Interesting. I am not thrilled with any of the remaining
contestants, but if I had to guess, I would say that
we will be watching Rory's gummy smile on FoodTV.

Jag has control issues. He can't control his anger, he has
issues with his military service, and he can't "dumb down" his
cooking.

Amy has demonstrated that she caves under pressure. I haven't
really seen any decent personality from her on camera, at least
that caught MY attention. She was an early favorite of mine, but
has been dropping ever since.

Time will tell, oh boy!
