I've Got A Fever and the Prescription Is More Cowball!

The new season of Hell's Kitchen started last week and I've made my pick for whom I am rooting. It was rather easy, actually. I'm pulling for Carol Scott.
Sure, it's a homer pick. Carol is a sous chef at the local restaurant, Peerless.

Sure, you could also accuse me of picking her for being a cutie, which is also true.

But when Gordon had the initial tasting of their signature dishes, when he normally rips the chefs & spits out the food, he praised her food. Plus I like the way she carries herself in the kitchen. I think she's got a chance to go far and she doesn't seem like the kind who will shortcut her ethics to get there. I don't think she wins because filming ended last year and from what I hear she is still in Knoxville. If she'd won, she'd be at her new restaurant now.

Why the post title? When Peerless opened in Knoxville a few years ago, my son Trevor was 6 or 7 and referred to it as "that cow ball place". I'll let you figure out why from this picture of their mascot out front.Cock of the walk, Baby!

  2. I don't watch a lot of TV, and I don't cook. So go figure two of my favorite shows are Hells Kitchen and Top Chef.
    Hells Kitchen gets top ranks because Gordon is..well........Gordon Ramsey! I couldn't imagine trying to make a bowl of cereal in front of him. I can hear it now. "Rebecca what the fuck are you thinking putting that much milk in the bowl you bloody moron!"
    Yep, we won't go there.

  4. I didn't watch Hells Kitchen. I do watch Top Chef but that's about it. Hope she does well.

  5. I guess I'll have to wait a while for this series to air in the UK. Unfortunately the way the US version is edited really annoys me - it's cut and spliced a bit too much - I like to see the whole conversation and not half a sentence :(
