Product Description

One blind spoonful could change everything on ABC's all-new alternative series, "The Taste," an exhilarating one-hour cooking competition that puts 16 culinary competitors - from pro chefs to home cooks -- to the fire with four of the world's most notable masters of the food world who will judge their creations based on a blind taste test. In this pressure-filled contest, the taste in a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing. The series features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre and chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey. These four culinary superstars and mentors will each coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call, as they vie to create the best tasting dish in a state of the art kitchen. In each episode the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through various elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors' dishes blind -- with no knowledge of whose creation they're sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be sending home. see more...

This isn't your mother's cooking reality show! The competition is fierce in this fast paced, drama filled show in which 16 competitors of different levels of expertise compete in a blind taste challenge!

All of their hopes and dreams ride on a single spoonfool! Mentors include chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef/author Ludo Lefebvre and chef/restaurateur Brian Malarkey. They form four teams, all competing through elimination round after round in the hopes of reaching culinary greatness!

This is a must-watch show, sure to please! Tune in Tuesdays on ABC

This is a delightfully refreshing new twist on the Competition format. I love that the tasting is blind so Chef's and Home Cooks alike have a fair shot at winning and the judges are not influenced by their emotions. It's all about 'The Taste' One Spoonful says it all. I Love this show. Never Miss it. Its a DVR Must!

After watching a few clips of The Taste on Vimeo, I must say --- It's a must see. As in, "everybody needs to watch at least one episode of it right now."

Admittedly, it's a bit cliche... I mean, there are four judges that choose their teams (like The Voice), the name itself (reminiscent of a lot of competitive cooking shows), the four judges then judge the food (every other cooking show), and the best individual is awarded with immunity for one episode while the worst individual is kicked off.

What's really different about this show is that the judges actually blindly taste the food that they're judging. So they could actually be kicking one of their own members off the show.

I know. It's intense.

But regardless, The Taste is a show worth watching. Even if you don't watch cooking shows, The Taste has some pretty spectacular competition. Plus, Anthony Bourdain is on it.
