Looks like Netflix has made a deal with Food Network and HGTV, because I've been lounging on the couch watching Good Eats episodes and House Hunters Int'l. Also, if you want to take a ticket to flavortown, Diners Drive-ins and Dives is on there, too.

I was always bummed by the lack of food and cooking shows on Netflix, but this is a good start!

It was like Christmas morning when I pulled up Netflix and saw House Hunters. I love that dumb show so much! Excited for food stuff, too.

I've been attacking Cutthroat Kitchen, Chopped, and Cupcake Wars.

I'm a bit disappointed that with the exception of Cutthroat Kitchen, these are all 25-episode "collections." Why not do a full thing? Does this mean this is all we'll ever get, no updates as time goes on? I hope not.

I think they're trying things out with the collections. I dunno. I blew through the Chopped collection while cooking this week on holiday. I've never watched Cutthroat Kitchen. Is it the same thing? I have a feeling it involves sabotaging people, which is kind of a bummer.

Cutthroat kitchen does have sabotages but they're integral to the game, not just people running around behind eachothers' backs and over salting their food or anything. What people come up with is pretty ingenious. Try an episode!

FN releases DVD sets as 'collections' instead of seasons.

This! I was skeptical at first, but the sabotages are awesome and hilarious. It's like three parts cooking competition, one part game show.
Million parts awesome.

Ok. I just started watching CK and was hooked the moment I saw DJ Chef. You guys have to check out his website.

They do a really good job of casting and portraying the chefs so that you really don't mind when they get sabotaged.

I thought I wouldn't be able to enjoy these shows because of the meats, but I decided to give Cutthroat Kitchen a shot last night and ended up being super torn between watching another episode or going to bed.

They really do! I literally cheered in the first episode where the lady forgot to put the top on the blender and her tomato sauce flew everywhere.

I used to love Good Eats, but I watched the first one and just got mad that he insisted that eggs were 100%, without question, necessary in both the cake and frosting.

Eggs are kind of integral to the kind of cake he was making (chiffon). The buttercream did bug me, though. That's not even. . . sanitary. . . And you're insisting it's 100% necessary? Errrr.

I think if there were a PPK vegan version of Cutthroat Kitchen, everyone would be so hesitant to sabotage each other...

Hahaha nooooo I'm giving someone the tiny utensils and replacing their fresh fruit with canned cocktail for sure!

I'm super excited even if it is collections and not whole seasons! Sadly my sweetheart will not watch cooking competition shows with me - finds them way too stressful. I can't judge though; while I watch horror movies for comfort, kid's movies seriously give me palpitations.

^^^ That makes perfect sense to me. I had Chopped on in the other room when I was getting ready to leave yesterday, and I found myself trying to hurry because of the count-downs. Ha.

sometimes i watch the shows and there happens to be some good looking chefs...i feel bad for chef-crushing on those cooking meat!


i have been trying to figure out how to do a vegan-zine-chopped challenge. i tried doing a vegan FN themed zine - it flopped. i figure if i do a chopped challenge i could pick my most used recipe ingredients that are easy to find, send out the list, set a date and people cook & submit.

After watching three episodes of Cutthroat Kitchen last night, I had a dream that someone made a D&D-like vegan version of it and we were playing it on the PPK forum.

Anyone wanna make that real? haha.
