While these worst cooks might have survived the first challenge, the Worst Cooks in America season has just started. Can salads be indulgent?
Worst Cooks in America might have survived a chicken challenge, but is there anywhere for them to hide in this week’s new task? As many people resolve to add more greens to their diet, this week’s episode could serve as a great lesson. Salads are far from boring and just might be indulgent.
According to the Food Network, this week’s Worst Cooks in America episode, “Indulge Me” features the following:
The recruits enter boot camp and find out that the theme is indulgence. Their first lesson is that salads can be indulgent, too, and the recruits play a game where salad elements are tossed into a bowl on their teammate’s head. Alton Brown and Anne Burrell teach the recruits how to make fresh mozzarella for a salad, and for the main dish challenge, the recruits re-create their chef’s craveable dish. The recruits who indulge their worst tendencies in the kitchen will be sent home.
After watching the first episode, many people might have had the same response as Alton Brown. Are these worst cooks really that bad? Everyone can have a bad day in the kitchen, but the level of horrible in the signature dish episode was just frightening.
As Anne sit out dish after dish, it makes you wonder how many bottles of antacids are on hand in the kitchen. It is shocking that no one has had food poisoning.
Adding Alton to this Worst Cooks in America season was a great choice for the Food Network. He seems to say what everyone at home is thinking. It will be interesting to see how his vast food knowledge is shared throughout the season.
With this episode focusing on salads and fresh mozzarella, the worst cooks really need to pay attention. Salad is notoriously difficult to get right. An over-dressed salad is slimy. A salad needs just the right balance.
As for the mozzarella, it will be interesting to see if the pantyhose return. If you watched the first episode, you will get the reference.
