Do you watch The Taste: Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC?

I was just introduced to a show that you are going to love! You may have noticed that I like to share some of my recipes with you. I enjoy cooking and trying new things but even more than that I like a little competition! Combine the 2 and you have me hooked! Whats great is that you don't even have cable or satellite TV, it airs on ABC Tuesday nights. 

Basically the contestants are divided into teams. Each team is mentored by a well known top chef. The individual chefs make a "spoon" and one spoon from each team is chosen to be tasted by the judges in a blind taste test! The winner gets immunity in the individual challenge!

In the individual challenge the mentors get to be the judges. They are, again, tasting blindly. They have no idea that they may be eliminating someone from their own team!

The judges have on spoonful to taste to choose a winner! 

“The Taste” features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre and restaurateur Brian Malarkey. Each of the four culinary superstars and “Taste” mentors – Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey – will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call as they vie to create the best tasting dish.

You can see the most recent episode and even catch up on the whole season so far like I am on HERE. Trust me, if you like cooking. eating or just good ol' competition, you should check this out! Put the kids to bed, grab a glass of wine and enjoy!
