Brilliant & Hilarious
7 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Kitchen confidential is so funny.

A nice engaging break from drama's, not only does it have the gorgeous Bradley Cooper in it as head chef. (check out alias season 1,2 and parts of 4&5) Also has Buffy favourite Nick Brendon as pastry chef completely inept with women.

It is a hilarious look at the restaurant business is new york. The episodes are engaging to watch as individual's or as a complete series. Needs to come out on DVD.

Bradley Cooper also gets his shirt off more times than i thought possible (not that i'm complaining, Its amazing that he has time to cook which strangely enough you don't see him do that often.

The series focuses more on the relationship between the chefs and their day to day lives.
