  1. I am in the States at the moment, so I've started watching the Food Channel. and I really enjoy that. My daughter is an actress. My son wanted to be a Chef just at the time when cooking was not 'looked down upon" but my American husband persuaded him away from that. Julia Child gave food preparation some respect, Martha Stewart made it seem great to be home and creative with housekeeping and cooking. I was so pleased with them both. When I came to the States in 1961 and mentioned that I had a cooking diploma from Copenhagen (night school, because I worked hard as a mother's helper during the day) people seemed to be unimpressed. I was a registered nurse, but before that I worked in the Danish Defense Minister's home in Copenhagen, I learned how to set the table for the various types of meals.I learned how to serve from the left and clear from the right, (although I was not a servant, however, when the Queen of Holland visited in 1953, I was thrilled to wear a little black dress and serve at the table, (I also helped to cook the meal for them), otherwise I sat at the table with the family every day. After that I returned to England to earn some money for my next sojourn, to Lyon, France. This family had their own cook. She was super, I learned a lot from her, even though I was busy with the children.
    When I married and had children I encouraged them to see what I was making, and allowed them to make cookies and little tarts. I told them a cook could be an artist and all the ingredients are like the different colour paints; it is up to you the artist to make them work well. So I am enchanted that my daughter has been on the 'chopped', and it appears that she has/had listened to the "stuff" I used to spout out while I cooked.

  2. I do not live in the States, I live in Mexico high up in the mountains. After an accident I flew back to CA to have a complete knee replacement. Everyday at the Physical Therapists we all watched "the Food show". Imagine my delight when we watched CHOPPED and my daughter was a contestant on that show and she won!!! She had not told me, she said she was too nervous and didn't want to raise my expectations. She's up for the Finale now and I'm so proud of her. So it goes to show all the stuff I told my children when they helped me cook, paid off. They actually listened and retained it. I hope I can find the show when I return to Mexico, it's really a lot of fun, and you learn too.

  3. Lost my email comment . .. but really enjoy the suspense and excitement of the show.

    i really love chopped. i rarely miss a show and for an added bonus i get to see chris, marcus and geoffry

  5. Gyoung says:

    Recently a competitor named Giuseppe did a desert with powdered sugar. He blew on all the desserts to remove excess powder..That is acceptable?

  6. FreedomPen says:

    Not everyone has the same "taste buds"… so they must be very open to what they are attempting to eat/taste. I could not try some of the foods they use as ingredients. Some of the ingredients I have never heard of before. Which is why this show is universal, in many aspects.

  7. Ainsley Chang says:

    I think that they should do a show when they bring in four winners from other episodes to spice things up.

    • Jo Torrey says:

      I don't know where to get a new subject but this rather fits into Ainsley's post. I would wish these Chopped posts has closed captioning. I am hard of hearing and few of the chefs have good TV voices for hard of hearing watchers. ;)

    • Choux Beau says:

      It's called Chopped Champions and they do this literally every season. Do you watch this show?

  8. Brigette says:

    I don't know why the lady on the episode I'm watching now didn't get into trouble for drinking tequila straight from the bottle, then using it to cook. They must not have seen her do it. Usually the judges refuse to taste the food if a chef did that or tastes off a spoon and then puts the spoon back in the dish. So gross, it's unhygienic.

  9. Wiscats says:

    I always wonder why, when Maneet is on as a judge, she always finds it necessary to speak first, long and often. I'd much prefer hearing from the others, especially Alex, Amanda, or Geoffrey.

    • DLewis says:

      I so agree with you comment about Maneet – you just know when you see her on the panel she will find fault with everyone and talk on and on and on!! Love the jewelry she wears but way to "judgmental"
