TV show description:
This cooking competition pits 16 chefs — from professional to amateur — against one another as they try to impress four of the world’s most notable chefs. The catch is all the dishes will be judged in a blind taste test. Presentation means nothing and the taste of a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing.

The judges are no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre, and restaurateur Brian Malarkey.

Each of these culinary superstars/mentors coach a team of four competing cooks which have been chosen from a nationwide casting call. They’re vying to create the best tasting dish.

In each episode, the groups face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each installment, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blind — with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared, or whom they could be eliminating.

Just watched all episodes on Hulu Plus. Really, really enjoyed it! I am looking forward to the finale! All these chefs are talented but is Anthony Bourdain’s genuine and cool demeanor that draws us in!

Keep the show. Get rid of Ludo,, he’s out of control.
He needs anger management therapy.

Great show. Love it….HOWEVER, the show where the cook, “Jennifer” throws up her finger and yells, “MEDIC, MEDIC” made me want to PUKE. Are you serious???? A medic? Toughen up sweetheart. A MEDIC is for people who just got shot, stabbed, are having a seizure, got in car crash, are having a heart attack…and you cut your little old finger and need a “MEDIC”, get outta here already!

Anthony Bourdain is what draws me in. Without him, the show is garbage.

The show is wonderful, and for one would like it to continue.

KEEP IT! Loved the concept. Need Ludo, you have a villain even in the kitchen.

Keep it! PLease!

Love the concept of the show; but I do not like Ludo. His accent is so thick that he’s very hard to understand. I think the show would be much better without him.

I thought this was great hope it comes back for season 2!
