“You’ve been chopped.”

Do you ever watch that show “Chopped” on the Food Network?

I’m no chef, but it’s pretty entertaining.

The show starts with three judges and four contestants. The contestants are each given the same exact ingredients, and they compete against one another to make the tastiest, most creative dish.

After each round (appetizer, entrĂ©e, dessert), one contestant is “chopped” (voted off the show by the judges).

What’s so cool about the show (even if you know nothing about cooking), is that each contestant comes up with something WILDLY different from the other contestants. Even though they all have the same exact ingredients to work with, their results vary dramatically.

Did you know that it’s the same way in the studio? (more…)
