Hola Gasmii! And welcome to Episode 3 of the Taste. Finally, we are getting to the real competition where the concept of this cooking competition finally kicks in.
Here’s how it works:
Four teams with four contestants are given ingredients with which to compose a dish and the team leader guides the contestants as they compose their dishes. The team leader then chooses which contestant’s dish to send to the guest judge. The dishthat the judge likes best wins immunity for the next round, and the winning team gets the guidance of that guest judge during the next round.
The elimination round is an individual competition, and everyone is given a theme to follow for their dish. This time, the judges (or team leaders) are not participating with their team and the blind taste test comes into play again. Spoon by spoon they each choose their favorite and least favorite tastes, and some are even eliminating their own contestant.
It’s really great to see how this plays out, but also disappointing how certain players choose to conduct themselves. You know that old adage about being nice to everyone on the way up, because you’ll have no friends on your way back down? Words to live by, Diane. Words to live by.
We saw two chefs go home last night, and one almost didn’t make it through if not for that immunity win. I really enjoyed it, but it seemed to me to kind of be a backwards Top Chef (the quickfire, immunity and final challenge concepts), but all in all it made for good television and made me really hungry!
What did you all think? You ready to come back for another taste?
