Asking the Tough Questions: Worst Cooks Recruits Take Culinary Quiz

by in Shows, February 5th, 2013

Worst Cooks in AmericaA brand-new season of Worst Cooks in America premieres in a few weeks — on Sunday, February 17 at 9pm/8c — and you may be wondering just how disastrous this year’s crop of culinary recruits really is in the kitchen. Do they know how to deglaze a pan, or are they such beginners that they’ve never seen a skillet? Are they familiar with basic kitchen utensils like the mandolin? What’s their understanding of spices?

We were asking ourselves these questions and others, and decided to put the recruits’ kitchen knowledge to the test. Watch the video below to find out how the contestants fared in our exclusive culinary quiz and see them answer — often with hilariously shocking responses —some of the most seemingly basic cooking questions. Click the play button to hear what they had to say, then tell us in the comments: Are you rooting for Team Anne or Team Bobby this season?

Tune in to the season premiere of Worst Cooks in America on Sunday, February 17 at 9pm/8c.

    Yes, you CAN put metal in a microwave! There are microwaves that come with their own metal rack, just like in a conventional overn. What you should NOT do is let separate pieces of aluminum or other metal touch each other. This will create an arc which can cause sparks and possibly a fire.

    The purpose of using aluminum foil is to block the microwaves in order to keep a particular part of the food from overcooking while the rest is heating.

    Go ahead and look at the book that came with your microwave…or Google it.

    Hell. I don't even know the dang answers. Mandolin is a musical instrument. I looked it up on google-it is a slicer-I have used the item before I just never knew what it was called. I know how to cook, I just ain't technical. I would have flunked that quiz all together.
    I do have common sense though-not leaving products out, washing your hands, changing the cutting board when working with raw meat. But I ain't never heard of any of these vocab words.

    I really have a difficult time listening to drama-queen Carla. I grimace every time she squeals or flirts with Chef Bobby Flay – yuck!
