The Taste

I saw a show called The Taste advertised over the weekend. It starts tonight on ABC. It might be interesting. Since they are only serving one spoon, or taste, I wonder if there will be any presentation...

I've heard about it. sounds like it could be good. We will more than likely only get to watch it a few months after you. SA is far behind :(

Somebunny and I were chatting in the What Are You Doing? thread that it is a culinary version of The Voice and neither of us are sure yet if we are going to like it. I will give it one more week.....

Just thought of one of the things that bothered me about the show. The whole thing is supposed to be about the taste. They eat and then they lock in yes or no. But so many times after they meet the person they regret their decision and wish they had voted for them. DUH!

Agreed! Seems a goofy premise to me, especially when some of the "tastes" they professed to like/enjoy but then did not choose the preparer. =\

I finally watched it and I like it.

I like that they have to commit based on the taste. It removes all the other stuff attached that has nothing to do with the final product.

I have no clue who 2 of the judges are - Luca and Malarky - but I did enjoy their reactions and comments.

I saw an ad for the next Worst Cook In America .. I like that one too.
