We watched the season premiere of Top Chef last night. I won't give away the loser in case you haven't watched it yet, but just a few comments on the overall. First off I gotta say I'm so spoiled by watching shows on DVR that I kept wanting to fast forward through the commercials, which seem longer and longer all the time! Anyone agree with this?
Secondly, a bit of a motley group, I must say! Including an instructor from the Culinary Institute of America! Should be an interesting season, egos are already defining themselves and show promise of lots of time will be wasted on stroking them!
Hopefully we'll get to see some inspiring cooking, not so much last night, not that they were awful, just a bit underwhelming. The premise for elimination was to cook a dish that represents your hometown roots. Some were way more successful representations while others were just all over the place!
Of course, I still admire anyone who is willing to put themselves and their food up to this challenge. I'm quite happy to play armchair food critic! Stay tuned, I'm sure there will be plenty more to chat about!
