Masters of Chef… Soon.
This is certainly one of the best cooking show I’ve seen by far, the hit American competitive cooking game show, MasterChef US.
I’ve seen everything, from the auditions to the finale and it was so heart-pumping, nerve-racking, mind-blowing kind of experience. I didn’t even had second thoughts when I saw the first episode. And from there, I kept my schedule on time.
Who knew these judges, well, it’s not me of course. But when they introduced their selves, wow, I felt dwindling back at my seat. Graham Elliot, the youngest chef who earned a 4-star rating. And he also earned the 2004 Best New Chef from Food & Wine Magazine. Joe Bastianich, who just owned 20 of the best restaurant in America and 3 wineries which recognized him as an “Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional”. And the producer/host/judge of the show, Gordon Ramsay, awarded with 12 Michelin Stars, owned 26 restaurant worldwide and the only man who knows best about food. Anyhow they are one hell of a master.
Moving on, my experience with this series is close to somewhat unexplainable. The judge taste the food, give a plain look, then walk away. There’s no way I can guess what: does it taste good, was it that bad, is he gonna make it, everything is just plain unexpected. But my bet was the youngest, Whitney Miller, who dropped out of college to follow her dreams.
Whitney, 22, a college student almost always surprised them all. At such an age, she’ll do whatever it takes, that’s what she said. And she did live up well to that. She won! She’s the first youngest AMATEUR chef who won MasterChef US. David Miller, the 1st runner up, has potentials too. He got 2 WINs but only Whitney get 3 WINs though he didn’t get a LOW point compared to Whitney. Nevertheless, they’re both one skillful amateur chefs.
I wanted to commend also for the format of the show. It was entertaining. With their different segments like the Invention Test, that surprised test (the one with the box thing), the Off Site Challenge where they will be split into two, it was never a boring show to watch.
Now, I so thrilled for their next season. Can’t wait! 🙂
