I was praying the "culinary curve ball" was a mistake they would only make once. Looks like it's here to stay. And the first dish fiasco. I know they want to keep the show fresh but this is bad.
And do they really want us to think they are coming up with their menus on the fly in a quick huddle?
(In their defense, it does give the judges a bit more airtime, but ugh. Ugh I say!)
