I just love Tuesday night TV! Hell's Kitchen with Chef Gordon Ramsey is one show I don't miss. It is on Fox at 7:00 p.m. I love the Chef's attitude - I always did like the bad boys. He's not bad to look at either. I wish I had the nerve to try out to compete on that show. But . . . the first time Chef would yell at me, I'd be in a puddle of tears and he'd send me home.
Chopped is on Food Network later in the night. There, four chefs compete for $10,000 by using several mystery ingredients to create first an appetizer, then an entree, and finally dessert. The mystery ingredients change for each round, and of course they are always a totally weird combination. I've learned a lot about food I've never even heard of watching that show.
I get all kinds of ideas for new food to try watching these shows. I have to admit though, not all of my experiments are a hit with the family.
