If you love to cook and indulge in delicious meals, this is for you! Are you addicted to cooking shows? How about one that is a VERY strong mix between Hell's Kitchen, Top Chef, and The Hunger Games? Who doesn't love a little drama in the kitchen? If this is you , why haven't you watched "The Taste" on ABC yet? It airs every Tuesday at 8PM EST\7PM CTR. 

From the very first episode, I was obsessed!! The show pretty much thrives off the format of "bling taste tests". All contestants, past and present have very different levels of cooking skills and knowledge. Which makes it even more interesting. from the amateur underdogs to the highly conceited and self-proclaimed, kitchen pros. This show is a fire cracker!! 

REVIEW PAGES: The Taste: Tuesdays at 8|7c on ABC!- The Show

All four judges have have split contestants down into their own teams. Each individual team picks one contestant that will be judged by their dish and gain the gift to recieve the coveted immunity opportunity from elimination. The individual meal challenges prepared by the contestants are tasted by the judges in"spoonfuls", literally and judged accordingly based on creativity, challenge instructions, and the taste, hence the name of the show! 

Judges never know who has cooked what meal and so they may just end up eliminating they're very own team members...how exciting and oh so juicy for drama! Each week there are two contestants that go home. Ouch! It's hilarious to see the panel of judges poke fun at each other, talk trash, and throw verbal punches but it's all in good fun which is exactly what this show is....FUN! I give this show a 10 out of 10 and you should definitely check it out!

Nigella Lawson: Nigella Lawson’s versatility is evident from her collection of best-selling books, hit television shows, and innovative apps for iPad and iPhone. In total, Lawson has written eight books, including Nigella Express, Feast, Nigella Bites, How to Be a Domestic Goddess, Forever Summer, Nigellissima, and Nigella Christmas.

Anthony Bourdain: My favorite judge, renowned chef, Anthony Bourdain is acclaimed for his New York Times best seller, Kitchen Confidential (2000). The impetus for this book was his earlier piece in the New Yorker, “Don’t Eat Before Reading This”(1999), which revealed the inner workings of New York City restaurants. His other works of literature include fictional crime novels, Bone in the Throat (1995) and Gone Bamboo (1997), and more recently, Anthony Bourdain’s Les Halles Cookbook: Strategies, Recipes, and Techniques of Classic Bistro Cooking. In addition to his extensive literary career, Bourdain also hosts the Emmy Award winning Travel Channel series, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, and previously appeared as a judge on Bravo’s Top Chef.

Born in New York City in 1956, Bourdain graduated from Vassar College. His passion for cooking was kindled in France, and has continued to grow while traveling abroad for his television series, unearthing the unique food of various regions. Bourdain resides in New York City with his wife, Ottavia, and daughter, Ariane.


the taste
Brian Malarkey: Brian Malarkey’s flair in the culinary spotlight began in 2007 when he advanced to the finale of Bravo’s Top Chef Miami. Raised on a ranch in Bend, Oregon, Malarkey was influenced by the fresh seafood and produce of the Oregon countryside. His grandmother’s cooking also served as constant source of inspiration, and as a result, Malarkey enrolled in culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Portland, Oregon.

In the last two years, Malarkey opened five restaurants in San Diego, including Searsucker, Burlap, Gabrdine, Gingham and Herringbone. Alongside partner, James Brennan, Malarkey hopes to open a total of fifteen restaurants as part of their Fabric of Social Dining venture, which capitalizes on the dinner party experience. He resides in San Diego, California with his wife, Chantelle.
