Thread: I knew every ingredient on the table

    Default I knew every ingredient on the table

    I could have just gone down and pointed and rattled them all off in 60
    seconds or less. I even got watercress once I saw him start to fondle it.
    Those were pretty easy, IMO.

    Nobody grabbed an Asian pear or a chayote. And didn't I see pinto beans in
    addition to the blackeyes? Who doesn't know what a pinto looks like?

    OK...I'll bite. What are you talking about? I haven't been around
    much so what did I miss?

    Beats me. I've only seen it twice now. Or does that count as 3 times?

    You know! THAT TV show. Heck, I don't even remember what it's called now.
    It's that one on Wednesday night ... prime time broadcast TV... With that
    ... is that Gordon Ramsey? And Lidia's asshole son.

    I'm curious, too. What TV show? Steve's original posts left me
    clueless also considering the context he did not provide! <G> I could
    not tell what he was talking about either!!

    Sky, who is often clueless, but in this case most definitely!!! HEH!

    Damned if I know. Probably nothing.

    They're *all* stupid. I guess I answered my own question. Nothing was
    missed.

    Heh! No wonder I was clueless. I've not seen that show either - and I
    think it might be called "Master Chef" - but what do I know (er, that's
    a rhetorical question/statement!) heheh!

    It's the only prime time cooking show on broadcast TV. C'mon! Everybody
    watches it!

    :-)

    Masterchef.

    OK, so I thought more people watched it than that. I was being purposely
    obtuse figuring somebody would have watched it. But I really did forget
    the name until I just looked it up.

    I could see people were leery of the lotus root.

    French sorrel does resemble those watercress greens he had. The show
    could have had other confusion factors:

    What if it was lox instead of smoked salmon?

    What if they were candlenuts instead of macadamias?

    Does it sometimes get stuck also on your PC? I find it annoying a lot, it
    blocks for 3-4 seconds and then gets back to normal

    I saw it last night for the first time on CTV (Cdn channel). There were
    11 contestants and I wondered if it started with 12. At least they bleeped
    and visually masked the language that makes me not watch anything with
    Gordon Ramsay. Cat Cora was a guest chef. I taped it and haven't watched
    the last hour yet. I'll give it at least that one try before I say I don't
    like it. ....Sharon in Canada

    I would have said lox, because often it isn't smoked, just cured. Unless
    it smelled of smoke, then I'm sure lox would have been acceptable.

    > What if they were candlenuts instead of macadamias?


    I figured there must be some harder ingredients out there than macadamias
    so my first guess was candlenuts until they showed a close-up.

    Sorrel has a more elongated leaf. Those were more round. And the smell
    would have been added confirmation.

    I don't think anybody picked the salmon either, which was obviously
    sockeye.

    For those who didn't see it, there was a table full of 25 "mystery"
    ingredients which the contestants had to name as many as they could.
    Nobody guessed more than 11 - but some people didn't have to name as many
    as they could - just enough to keep them from losing.

    I would rather see them guess as many ingredients as they can rather than
    just beat the guy ahead of him/her.
