Yes, I've watched them.
Their forte is that they are quite disciplined about cooking, test several methods and through tasting present those that come out best. They also perform [pretty good] tests on cookware and kitchen gadgets.

Really nice people

Any ideas? :hmm: My son is only 13, but LOVES cooking. I thought if I could get him a volunteer job with someone who knows how to cook, it
would help him learn what I have no idea how to do. :ohwell:
Try another restaurant, where the food is really good.

If ya want to figure out what not to do, they are a pretty good team 'When It Comes To The Basics'.

Their presentaion of 'the best' and 'the worst' of cookware untensils is a little bit Hokey. Why? Because their presentor doesn't know his azz from a hot rock about 'Human Factors Engineering'.
