I liked that line too. I can’t imagine shopping in that type of market with no interpreter but they seemed to do alright. I wish they would hav spent a little more time really showing the market and food items. The eel lady was one of my favorites too - no hesitation with that cleaver.
So the challenge was to cook for 200 - did it look to anyone else like there were maybe 50 people in that room for the challenge?
I wasn’t shocked by who was told to PYKAG. I’m still rooting for Michelle right now.
I like Padma - so no complaint about her in particular - but I really dislike when the hosts of these challenge shows decide to be super opinionated judges - That is why these shows have well seasoned, respected judges. When the host feels they are on equal footing with the judges it suggests to me that the show is saying any random person’s opinion is the same as the trained professionals. Maybe that is one reason I like the dynamic on The Great British Baking Show - the hosts are hosts, rooting for the contestants and the judges are judges . . . . doesn’t matter how long the hosts have been on the show, they are still hosts . . .
