I get it, the format is set, there is a reality show aspect to this show, this is NOT Top Chef and even if there are valid comments/suggestions, it's a moot point for this season. My one comment, which I believe can still be taken under consideration for this season, are your blogs. While we can certainly see and even empathize with the chefs/team as they encounter challenges, we cannot taste the food. Wouldn't it make sense for you and Chef Cora - two constants on each episode who are actually chefs - to further elaborate on the actual dishes served? What worked and what didn't; why a dash of this vs. a dash of that made one dish stellar vs. another; how the inclusion of something would have made the difference etc. You do touch on it a bit on your blogs at times, but it is very surface level. I am not a chef by any means, but I do love to eat and oddly enough believe I can imagine the taste based on the comments and my exposure to certain cuisines. I think adding that to your blogs, especially since you were there and you are a "credible witness" (i.e. a bonafide good chef) would make this blog a lot more resonant with the foodie-viewers. Certainly gives a more in-depth perspective that the show lacks.
