Satellite Virgin- the Trilogy
I heart Throwndown With Bobby Flay. In fact I think I heart Bobby Flay, or his cooking at least. Once in New York I went to one of his restaurants (that has since closed down) and had this lamb shank that I swear I can still taste. You know something's good when ten years later you still taste it. The premise of the show is Bobby finds a cook that is known (at least in their area) for a good dish. It could be Philly cheesestakes, chicken fried steak, apple brown betty- whatever. So Bobby secretly tries to make the same dish only better. Then the Food Channel sets up a pretend cooking class or taping for the locally famous cook. While this poor person (so nervous already I'm sure) is trying to display their talents for their famous dish Bobby pops up and challenges them to a "throwdown". The two cooks go at it making the same dish & then a non-bias panel of judges from that area blindly tastes both dishes & decides the winner. This show grabs me in every time. First I like watching Bobby cook. Second I learn new methods and recipes to make dishes. Third I like how his competition isn't famous people. He'll find Joe Shmo from Nowhere, Texas who can make amazing biscuits and challenge him. I love that it gives real cooks, in real life a chance to get recognized. Fourth, look at the stinkin' graphic for his show, it's so cool! I'll watch it just because of the graphic (I'm very aesthetically persuaded). Plus, it's always fun to see who wins. Good job at a great show Bobby. Now please send me some of your lamb shank with rozoto as made in your Bolo restaurant... please!
Hope all my well informed and professional TV reviews helped ya'll. I know you really needed my opinion about this matter. If there's a great show that I didn't mention that I should have shout it out in the comments section below. Happy veggin' out.
