Tomorrow, it is time for my little Q and A here on the blog. This is the last chance you have to ask me a question! Go ahead and let me know what you are thinking, or if you are wondering over certain things.
I am a sucker for cooking shows!
Yes, I am!
Me!? I used to HATE them!
I used to think that it was a huge amount of wasted time to sit thru a cooking show. I laughed at them! I thought; OH NO I am not going to sit in front of something like THAT!!!!
That whole outlook changed a couple of years ago.
I guess I started to love cooking shows when my love of cooking started to grow.
Now I can sit in front of The Food Network and watch several cooking shows in a row. My favorite is “Throw down with Bobby Flay”, and “My favorite food” etc.
I am also very much in love with the ANGRY chef Gordon Ramsey, and I am so glad that the new season of Masterchef has started. Masterchef has got to be one of my favorite cooking shows of all times. Amateur cooks from all over the country are competing for the title of Masterchef, and Gordon Ramsay is one of the judges.
Earlier this winter-spring, I watched the Swedish version of Masterchef and, needless to say, I absolutely loved it.
My friend Anette (lives in Stockholm) and I used to discuss every episode in e-mails as soon as we had watched them.
It is pure luxury to watch the same TV-shows as the Swedish people watch. I love it!!
I love my computer that lets me do all that. And, I love that the world is so “small” these days that we can watch TV-shows from all over the world!
Anyway, I thought that Masterchef Sweden was so incredible good! And, it will be interesting to see if the American version is just as good. Yes, I do know that this is season two of Masterchef, but I missed the first season.
So now America has to deliver, and my expectations are HIGH (I am writing this on Monday afternoon so it is still too early to judge).
Louise, the winner of Masterchef Sweden.
I have gotten so many ideas from cooking shows, so much inspiration!!
I have made several dinners that I have seen being made on TV first.
I make a mean avocado soup that I saw on a Swedish cooking show.
I make a really good beef tenderloin that I saw on another Swedish cooking show.
Same thing goes with pasta dishes of many kinds.
Rachael Ray gave me the inspiration to make hamburgers stuffed with feta and sundried tomatoes and basil.
Bobby Flay has given me the recipe of the best meat loaf I have ever had/made in my life.
Cooking shows have taught me never to skimp on whipped cream and butter.
Cooking shows have made me a much better cook!
So, needless to say, I really love them. And, in the afternoons you can sometimes find me in front of my computer watching another Swedish cooking show.
Later on in the evening, it is not impossible that you’ll find me in front of the tube watching The Food Network.
I am a sucker, as I said in the first sentence today.
