by in Shows, March 19th, 2014

Bobby and AnneWhen Season 5 of Worst Cooks in America began, 14 culinary klutzes entered Boot Camp; each contestant had the hope of making it to the end, to win $25,000 and at the same time gain bragging rights for their mentor Anne or Bobby. The finale is less than one week away. Two recruits have risen to the top, proving that it is possible to start at the bottom and work one’s way up. Through countless Skill Drills and Main Dish challenges, they’ve shown resilience to nearly anything Chefs Anne and Bobby could throw at them, from milking cows for making fresh mozzarella to tackling very much alive lobsters. Now it’s time for you, the fans, to show support for your favorite team.

And their mentor gets bragging rights. This year, Anne is fighting to get back her title after losing to Bobby in Season 4. Every week, one recruit from each team is sent home.

Worst Cooks Skill Drills: Seafood Freak-Outs

by in Shows, March 15th, 2014

Red Team lobstersCooking involves facing many different things, including ingredients that may not be as easy or pleasurable to deal with as others. Scaly fish, snapping lobsters — these are just some of the scary ingredients recruits have had to face on past seasons of Worst Cooks in America. All you have to remember is you’re at the top of the food chain. And when it comes to “dispatching” with a live lobster, some kitchen confidence is involved, but once you get beyond it, you will have an impressive lobster dinner.

The lesson that Anne and Bobby try to teach is to not to be afraid of anything in the kitchen, especially creatures of the deep. Cooking fish and shellfish may take some getting used to, but it’s no reason to keep from cooking and enjoying eating them.

Worst Cooks Skill Drills: Flavor, Flavor, Flavor

by in Shows, March 8th, 2014

Alina and BobbyWhen it comes to cooking, the most-important aspects that determine a successful plate of food are taste and flavor — that’s a given. Food that tastes good is good. But on Worst Cooks in America, taste and flavor are oftentimes the last things on recruits’ minds. What happens quite often is they will overcompensate with salt or use way too many spices when they’re told their food is not flavorful enough. And on occasion they will mix up competing flavors, making, say, a Cajun curry — a dish that is confused and muddled.

The lesson that Anne and Bobby try to teach is taste, taste, taste. Taste as you go, as you cook, so you won’t end up oversalting your food before serving it. It’s all about layering flavors and making combinations that work well together and do not compete against each other. This is a cornerstone of learning to cook, and hopefully by the end of Boot Camp the recruits will have learned this lesson.
