It's a reality show featuring some world-renowned, some quasi-famous, chefs who are competing for money for charity.
Every week there is a $10,000 winner, and also one of them is eliminated from the competition. At the end of all this drama, someone will walk away with $100.000 for his or her charity.
I like this show. I like men who can cook. There is just something so sexy about a man in an apron. I have a mad crush on Anthony Bourdain who stars in No Reservations on the Travel Channel. He's not a contestant though. I don't think he wears an apron on his show either.
Acclaimed French chef Hubert Keller is competing, and looks fine in his culinary whites. He can cook for moi' anytime.
There were a few women competing in the initial qualifying rounds, but only one of them made the cut for the finalists.
I find the judges to be interesting as well.
Namely, Former New York Magazine Restaurant Critic, Gael Greene.
She wrote a memoir a few years back called Insatiable which I plan to review in an upcoming post.
From the excerpts I've read, this book is a tell-all of how she ate her way to the top.
So to speak.
She may just be my new idol.
My silliness aside, I'm truly interested to find out how one becomes a Food Critic.
You are paid to go to nice restaurants and eat, and then write your opinion.
Not that I'm planning on changing careers mind you, I'm just curious about stuff like that.
And did I mention...Elvis...Clint...Burt...
