For me, the fact that the show under-showcased its participants didn't diminish the result at all. These were some talented folks, cooking in a seriously challenging environment. Their sheer, unbridled sense of accomplishment was well earned and in spite of some bizarre editorial choices, the undisputed bright spot of the show.

    Highlighted so people who feel discouraged reading through this can see a bright spot.

    I do not have passport, and so I can't go back and catch all of the episodes of the Great American Recipe that I missed. I missed the first two shows, and the only one I watched in its entirety was the finale, but all of the contestants that I was able to catch were fantastic cooks, and yes the host of the show was not as engaging as the two hosts on the original Great British Baking Show, but I did not find her objectionable, and she was way more pleasant to watch than Gordon Ramsey. All of Gordon Ramsey's cooking shows are toxic, except for the show he does with the children. The host is returning for season two, as are the judges. Master Chef was on Fox last night, and I watched it for about two minutes, and then I had to switch to a different channel. BTW- Graham Elliot is a judge on Master Chef too.

    I couldn't agree with you more on Ramsay. Toxic doesn't even begin to describe him. In our house, he's rated U, for Unwatchable.

    As for GAR, I think they've got a potential gem on their hands (like GBBS) but right now, it's in need of some serious polish.

    King of Culinary
    Mediacorp (Singapore)

    The basic premise is advanced home cook vs. celebrity chef. The home cook has the advantage of a few additional minutes of preparation, selection of the main ingredient and a couple of chances to force the professional chef to use additional ingredients.

    Unlike most Western culinary challenges, there is a band of chefs watching and commenting on the work of both chefs which in and of itself can be very interesting.

    This is not a cooking show, but did anybody see Celebrity Wheel of Fortune on Sunday evening? All three of the contestants were food celebrities. They had Jet Tila from the Food Network, Carla Hall from the Chew, and Phil Rosenthal on. When it was Phil's turn, he would buy all of the vowels.

    Taco Chronicles is back on Netflix. This series focuses on the U.S., including Chicago. It's taking everything I have right now not to get in the car and ruin myself for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Soon as I read this I clicked over and watched the Chicago episode. Dear Sweet Carrol Channings Ghost! I feel like canceling turkey day and following the exact Taco Chronicles Chicago trail.
