View Full Version : Signe Chanel and Masterchef Goes Large
10-16-2006, 11:55 AM
If you like Top Chef or Project Runway, I think you'd like these two shows. Signe Chanel is on Sundance and it is a documentary that follows the House of Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld as they prepare a line of couture items for a fashion show, from design to catwalk. It is a lot of fun; Sundance just did a marathon on sunday and will probably be showing it again.
Masterchef goes large is on BBCA and pits 100 :eek: contestants against each other in 30 30-minute shows until they pick a winner. The contestants are amateur/homegrown cooks and the pace is fast. There are 2-3 challenges in each show, one where all the ingredients are the same, one in a professional kitchen and then one of cook's choice. I've seen some very interesting and impresive dishes, although I sometimes wish more time was given to cover them.

I've been watching Masterchef and like it.

Good, then you can't damn me for suggesting you watch it. :p

I missed the final! Does any one know who won?

It may be reapeated. I think the original aired on Friday, but something else recorded (higher priority on my SP) and I caught the repeat on Monday.
I was hoping that Mark would win, but thought Caroline would.
And the winner is:
I really enjoyed this series. But boy, those Brits don't smile do they? Also, sometimes it was hard to understand them.

Thanks.. I am happy with the winner. Searched BBC for upcoming episodes but none were to be found. I am totally hooked on all these cooking shows- Hells Kitchen, Top Chef etc. Actually I am hooked on most of the reality shows period! LOL

some of my favorite cooking shows outside of Food Network are Chef at Home, License to Grill and Master Class at Johnson & Wales, and Cooking in Brooklyn. I sometime watch Kylie Kwong, but I don't usually like the stuff she makes.

I like Chef at Home but the guy is a little creepy. It seems like he could switch to serial killer at any moment. The Cooking in Brooklyn guy has some good stuff for sure and I haven't watched License to Grill-I'll set up a SP. Discovery Home has a really nice Sunday cooking block.
Kylie Kwong just intimidates me with her menus. I'm sure they're good, but I could never see myself make anything from her show. The Johnson & Wales series is one of my favorites. It ranks up there with the series PBS had on The cooking secrets of the CIA. :up:

I like Chef at Home but the guy is a little creepy.
Creepy? :( I think he's a little too granola for me.
The other one I couldn't think of was Inner Chef.
