Chopping Block Ep. 2

I'm liking MPW more and more. He's really a teacher and the teams would be well served to listen to his advice. It's too bad none of the teams seem talented enough to benefit from his wisdom. I particularly liked that MPW did a cooking demo for both teams.

Just some thoughts on this weeks episode. A caprese salad? Does anyone think that they can get away with making that these days? I liked how Nicole Miller and Jeffery Steingarten both called out Lisa on the Chilean sea bass. It is endangered and there is no reason to serve it. I cannot believed Michael thought it was okay to serve 5 day year old salmon. Angela seems to know how to make one thing and one thing only, crab cake, twice in two episodes. At least people really seem to like it. Is Kelsey there for anything else besides eye-candy? I don't think we've seen her cook anything yet.

If there were stronger cooks on this show it would be great.
