Recaps

Hell's Kitchen: Disappointing. The casting department outdid themselves; they found the most incompatible people in the world and put them in one kitchen. Drama aplenty, cooking was lacking, really lacking. The group got a few appetizers out, but no food to speak of. There are a few decent chefs and a few basket cases. The show should salvage itself after Gordon weeds out a few of the bozo's (himself not included of course).

The Next Food Network Star: Encouraging. Great personalities and a heavy focus on the food. The most obnoxious contestant was eliminated. A variety of cooking styles and combinations of cooking situations. This season looks to be better than both of its predecessors.

Gordon needs to get rid of the crier nursing home cooker dude...

Now would be good.

Yah, that guy has some issues. I hope that guy doesn't break down in the middle of dinner at the retirement home. Most of the ol' folks have medications that need to be taken with food.

maybe they should be sharing their meds with him?

I so agree with you. Hell's Kitchen, thumb's down. But The Next Food Network Star is not bad. I sort of like it--it has potential.

I used to like the Barefoot Contessa until she made lasagna with cheddar cheese. Huh? Hey, don't mess with Italian food! :)

heheh, out in the west your more likely to see cottage cheese than ricotta in your lasagna. I guess there aren't a lot of Italians out here. I prefer it with ricotta.

The Next food Network star is clearly the better show. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.
