Chopped!

Have you seen the program 'Chopped', where 4 contestants try not to get chopped from a competition making appetizers then main dish to dessert? Whoever is left gets $10,000?
They are giving baskets in each round and they HAVE to use all the ingredients in that round, no matter how obtuse the items are.
In the last round, a guy puts together a cake, the girl puts together what looks like dessert appetizers. The guy doesn't realize he makes it with salt instead of sugar! OUCH! A salty dessert. Like I said, OUCH!
That show was rather funny. ~Bliss

Larry, did you see the guy on that one episode that forgot to use bananas in his dish? He just decided, hey, I don't need to incorporate this ingredient from his basket? He was disqualified. He was good, but, he didn't follow the rules. ~Bliss

I love that show! The first time I saw it, I turned it on late and only saw the last round. The next time I saw two rounds, and last time I saw the whole show. Did you see the one where the young guy (a personal chef) kept tasting off the spoon, then putting it back into the food? They said something to him about it, but he continued to do it. Yuck! Plus he accused one of the other chefs of stealing his mushrooms. He asked if he could have some of hers (I think he asked for 3), and when she said yes, he took quite a few. Fortunately, for her, she was done with them. He didn't even thank her until the judges asked if he had. Then he gave a quick and insincere sounding, "Thanks."

Yeah, the banana episode was the first one i saw . I dont know what he was thinking, not using the required ingredient. The Israeli girl seemed to have her crap together. But I felt bad for that guy who put salt instead of sugar in his desert. He seemed pretty good too.

I like it too.
It would be neat to see Chopped or a similar show, with everyday cooks competing
instead of professionals.

Would you apply to be a contestant?

I am sure I would love the show but as far as I know we don't get it here in Canada. Is it on the Food Network? If so we will get it in a year or so.

Tonight's episode wasn't as intense as the past few. I love this show, right at 10 I pushed my suite mates out of my room just so I could watch without distraction. I wish I could be one of the judges, it would be awesome! But it was really gross when the meat fell on the floor and the guy didn't even wash it off... blehhh
