The Gourmet Next Door

Is anyone watching? It premiers this Sunday. I'm curious to watch what this girl can cook. Do most of these chefs have to come from a recognized culinary school? When will they put an ordinary person on air that doesn't have the whole culinary training? The Gourmet Next Door: With Next Food Network Star Season 3 Winner Amy Finley : Sundays at 12pm/11c : TV

I'd like to watch it, but 1 p.m. on Sunday is a rather inconvenient time. I never really learned to work the VCR (who wants to mess with technology at home when that's what I do all day at work?!?) and don't have a Tivo, so I guess I'll keep an eye out for reruns. They usually run these shows several times a week.

I did watch "The Next Food Network Star" when she was competing and thought she did really well. I'm glad the Texan with the great big teeth didn't win - that grin really turned me off.

Yep, she had formal training, in New York I think it was. She created a nich for herself by attemping to duplicate the complicated dishes she was learning by doing the semi thing. She talked about it on one of the shows.

I just watched it, and I have to say, I'm not very impressed. It was actually a pretty boring/bland cooking show. Amy Finley needs to let her personality shine a bit more, like she did on The Next Food Network Star. Hopefully it'll get a little more interesting in upcoming episodes.
