It's been a few episodes since I wrote a Master Chef update - this because nothing particularly blog worthy has occurred up until now.
But thanks to one of my early favourites, Christine Corley, that's all changed.
Not only did she brandish her culinary superhero powers by pulling off a chocolate mousse at the eleventh hour during a dessert challenge this week, she went old school Hells Kitchen before the judges, dropping the f bomb with the ferocity of a white rapper at an Eminem concert.
People, there is just not enough of that in food television.
And all hail the King - Chef Gordon Ramsay - who's team of crack editors have put together an edge of your seat culinary romp that routinely has my entire family laughing until we cry - and then foraging in the fridge for snacks because you can, honestly, almost smell the food.
Not to mention the palpable tension when one of the judges gets a bee in his bonnet.
I love it when Joe Bastianich stares down the contestants rattle snake style or goes Jack Nicholson (You can't HANDLE the truth!) over a food transgression like de-boning a rack of lamb - "Are you OUT OF YOUR MIND?" or worse, serving it raw.
Wherebye the editing team pans the horrified faces of the other contestants and we, the viewing public whimper "Why? Why?" as we vow never to let the juice escape from a steak by stabbing it with a meat thermometer, or - God save our souls - forget to sear a side.
So even though I am quite heart broken that another one of my early favourites, Max Kramer was sent home last night in a close steak cook off with Christine, I will continue watching because, let's face it, where else will you ever hear food commentary like:
"It's like a coffee flavoured blood clot"
"The texture is like a skin graft," anywhere else but Fox?
It's just good TV.
And that's the blog.
Hungry after all that good Master Chef food? How about trying a steak challenge of your own with my Pan Seared Steak in Pebre Inspired Sauce?
