The Taste

The Taste: Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC

Have you guys seen The Taste? I just started watching, and I am hooked! It’s a cooking show on ABC, featuring both professional chefs as well as home cooks. It strikes me as a cross between food network and the X Factor. The premise of the show (through the different challenges, twists and turns) is that each cook makes a dish, that they get to serve one spoonful of to four chefs – Malarkey, Bourdain, Lawson, and Ludo to be exact. I love that all the presumption and perception of celebrity/professional chefs being better cooks than some of us at home, gets thrown out the window. In the auditions it really seemed like a lot of the professional chefs were trying so hard to make something that stands out, that they overdid it and made something that actually fell flat – while the home cooks focused on what really mattered – not exotic ingredients or foreign cooking styles, just, well, the taste!

As with any reality/live show, there’s plenty of drama, ego, and suspense to go around – just my style!

You can watch the latest episode at http://abc.tv/Z3jimp, or watch tonight! I’ll be tuning in  and live tweeting a little along with the show – if you’d like to join me at 8pm, I’m tweeting at @julie101blog.
