User Reviews

 
Show no longer cares about the best chefs
3 April 2020 | by jfh-72320See all my reviews

Gone way downhill.

Show is now more concerned about diversity and less about true top chefs. They just want to make sure they have plenty of Asians, Blacks, and of course gay and lesbian combinations. You're going to tell me that this represents the "top chefs" in America? Straight whites are the "minority" on this show.

It has also become very corporate, which drives who really wins. It's about whose "marketable". Padma overestimates her importance. Doubt she can cook anything but Indian food. It's really a show about food snobs: "I eat food, therefore I'm a food critic and expert".
