The weekend is going by way too fast for me. I swear, I have no idea where Saturday went. On a good note, it’s a great week for TV, and that starts tonight. Megan would’ve been here, but her poor dog tried to eat a porcupine, so she spent Saturday night at the vet’s, getting him de-quilled and sewn up. Poor thing. JJ’s busy with school and work, so it’s just Kyle and me here to give our recommendations. 🙂 (Oh, and Happy Star Wars Day. 😉 May the fourth be with you…)
I’ve really been enjoying America’s Best Cook. It’s a cooking competition show, which you know I love, and one of the mentors if my favorite celebrity chef, Michael Symon. What’s not to love? Last week, Chef Ron Ben-Israel was the judge for the dessert with bacon episode. Ben, on Cat Cora’s Team South, cut his finger bad enough in the middle of the first challenge that he had to go to the hospital to get it stitched up. Therefore, when he came back in time for the Pressure Cooker, he was able to make a PB&J dish and pulled it off well enough to have the best dish in the Pressure Cooker round, so he stayed in the competition. Sheri and Phillip, both from Tyler Florence’s team, got sent to the Pressure Cooker, too. In the end, Phillip went home because his mousse was good, but the rest of the dish showed a lack of thought and planning and skill.
I’m excited about this episode because from the previews, Stephanie, on Team North, has it out with Chef Symon over cooking fish. She makes some comment about thinking Chef Symon’s never cooked a fish in his life, so she’s basically ignoring him… Ballsy move, and more than a little stupid. So we’ll see if she wises up or not!
On tonight’s episode, “Mentor Meltdown,” as each chef contestant continues in their quest for the title of America’s Best Cook, they are tasked with competing in a brunch challenge, one of the hottest food trends. Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian serves as a guest judge.
