No..It's NOT Hells' Kitchen..It's BETTER
10 November 2006 | by pamelannSee all my reviews

As much as I like Hell's Kitchen and I LOVE Gordo, MCGL is only a 30 minute show that actually shows cooking and feedback...ALL OF THE TIME. There's a lot to be learned if you are novice cooks from the US like myself. The vegetables used in Europe are far different than here as well as the recipes.

My husband would laugh because each episode was so serious and when cooking for Michelin Star chefs who critique their every move even down to fingerprints on the plate. I knew European chefs were extremely serious and my husband just didn't get it, but I did and I recommend the show highly.

One other thing...It was admitted by a producer of a top cooking show in Europe that the TV chefs are marginal cooks with an abundance of personality. This show distinguishes that nicely. You can like Rachel Ray and Jamie Oliver but at the end of the day, wouldn't you like the best plate of food possible. See Gordon Ramsey's restaurants. he is 2006 chef of the year or some title like it. Knocking off Jaime Oliver.

Now I'm hungry....
