I'm surprised nobody has made a thread to talk about this program. BBC America is showing it from 8-10am weekdays, and DH and I have been watching it with delight. No whining, complaining, back-biting, or belittling of the contestants. Just actual chefs who (mostly) know what they're doing (some of them are extremely young), doing high level cooking. If it comes out looking like the dog's breakfast the judges are straightforward about it, and if something is really really good, it gets high praise. I also like that before they show us the chefs competing to make a particular dish, the viewers are walked through the recipe so we get to see how they're supposed to be done.
