never seen it. personally, i cannot stand alton brown. i used to watch alot of cooking shows when i was in the restaurant biz. i cooked for a while and for the last five years of my kitchen career i worked in a fine dining restaurant. it was never really my passion. i always noticed a huge difference between shows like top chef and hells kitchen. i dont think i had the creativity to be on top chef but i always thought i would wreck it on hells kitchen. i could run a line like nobodys business.
one day im gonna figure out why i come to peoples threads and go off on tangents that nobody cares about haa haa haa
Ha ha. That's great though. Do you still have the passion for cooking? and how was your experiences? I've always looked into what it would take to become a chef and I could never find the proper approach as to becoming one. Where I am from there is not a lot of resources available in terms of cooking career.
As far as the show goes, just started watching it on Netflix. I love the challenges and the creativity the chefs must endure to compensate in making a dish. I don't think I have what it takes to be that creative in such a short period of time and under pressure.
I totally agree with you. Its one thing to think up things on the spot but to be given a challenge and to think up things on the spot WITH the challenge, its amazing. I envy the chefs that are able to do that.
Only cooking competition I ever liked was the original Iron Chef show because it was simple and like in a real restaraunt the chefs were pressed for time and it was simply use this ingredient to make some dishes in an hour which worked well.
