Storyline

Chopped challenges four promising chefs to turn a selection of everyday ingredients into an extraordinary three-course meal. In each episode, four chefs compete. The show is divided into three rounds; in each round, the chefs are given a basket with four unrelated ingredients, and the dish each competitor prepares must contain all of these ingredients.

INSULT To the Art of Fine Cooking (And to Common Sense)
31 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched the first episode and I am still picking my jaw up off the floor. The contestants kept a constant self-pity party going through the whole show about how THEY must each win, they MUST or they will be DESTROYED. It was SICKENING.

The premise of the show is to give each chef a box of bizarre and even revolting ingredients and force them to concoct a finished dish using those ingredients (which included such swill as grape jelly beans and sickening canned shrimp, okra and buttermilk (!) and to do it in a RIDICULOUSLY short amount of time.

The great and truly creative chefs of the haute cuisine spend days mixing, changing and redoing elements of a dish to create something magical.... constantly changing, tasting, adjusting, tasting, Substituting this for that... and only once in awhile do they come up with a masterpiece. Some of the signature dishes of well known chefs have been through 40 or 50 versions before they are perfected.

This show is a travesty and an insult because it does not even acknowledge the most fundamental aspects of true culinary art. I can count on ONE HAND the times I saw these 'chefs' even taste anything at all.

The dishes these chefs were forced to come up with were so DEPRESSING.
