    I just finished watching the June 26th competition of the New Orleans Chef's and know that the judges totally missed the winner by a land slide! It's obvious there was no interest in choosing the chef who took risk or used creativity. Chef Cody not only did that but made excellent presentations – EVERYTIME! One has to ask did the criteria for judging get thrown out the window?!

      I think a great idea for a chopped show is the "housewife or husband" edition. One show with four stay at home parents who aren't professionals just like the lunch lady edition. Also, how about a suggestion for a basket ingredient….dehydrated hash browns or croutons?

    Yes I agree with Julie Blake. Nowadays people are overly obsessed with foods to the extent of being too extravagant and wasting them. We all love foods but lets not waste them. This will make all the food shows slightly more eco friendly. Thanks. I am a big fan of chopped and Iron Chef America though.

    Ted, some comments about you on Chopped:
    a) Please DO NOT interrupt isolated chefs WHILE they are cooking! And if you must then interrupt ALL OF THEM – it's not fair that you interrupt one and not the others. My suggestion, ask your questions AFTER they have finished cooking.
    b) Are you a fourth judge? Why do you remind judges about a mishap one chef may have had but not comment on the other chefs? You seem to pick and choose and it seems as if you are trying to influence their judgement. Please, try to be fair to all the participants. Don't be biased.
    Lastly, GREAT SHOW, LOVE IT (otherwise I wouldn't have bother with my constructive criticisms). Regards,
