    1. Loved it. Loved his book cover even more:)

      1. Excellent. For a British take on this concept, try "Posh Nosh":

          There's always Supersizers Go, too:

            I LOVE the Supersizers! Are they still on the Cooking Channel?

            1. re: Kagemusha

              Thanks for posting this link, awesomely funny show!

          2. I like the idea of the skit, but it didn't come together for me. Seems it's not aimed at foodies, but rather at the people who love to hate them. I wasn't expecting Ted Allen to be a great actor, but his performance did not help any. I had a little chuckle, but it's pretty forgettable.

            Posh Nosh, mentioned by Miss Priss above, does this a lot better.

              Posh Nosh is Classic.

              "Joy of Sets" also does a good rip on Masterchef (though you have to familiar with the AUS version)

                Omg, loved the Posh Nosh clip, never saw that show before, have to watch them all now!

              2. I did not think it possible to be more in love with Ted Allen than I already was. Thanks for sharing this one.
