I watched the entire first season as it aired on television and found it to be a terrific blend of cooking competition shows (e.g. Top Chef) and travel competition shows (e.g. The Amazing Race).

The show starts with a dozen chefs, all hoping to win the top prize. Each episode has the chefs engaging in an early race of sorts that takes them throughout a new exotic city. Most of these challenges involved getting acquainted with the local cuisine. The winning group in this challenge earned an advantage (usually a key ingredient) to use in the second challenge of the episode, which involved cooking the local cuisine.

I loved living vicariously through the competitors as they travel to fantatic international locales such as London, Tuscany, and Asia. If we just had taste-a-vision, it would have been delicious as well as delightful.

A fun ride!

This is pure reality tv, not a travel or cooking show. It basically consists of made-up drama between the characters. It so happens they are in Thailand but the real point is the melodrama. I got really annoyed and bored halfway through and turned it off. Total waste of money.

I like the idea of this show. I especially like seeing Cat Cora in a different role than Iron Chef. Curtis Stone is a charming and likeable fellow, but I wish he would be a little more visual nd assertive in his role. ATWI80P,is a refreshing spin on a Foodie show. The locations are the real star of this show. Contestants however could use a bit more professionlism and character in their working roles with one another. Why do they have to be so vicious toward each other? I get it, its a competition, but their outright intolerance for each other is somewhat disconcerting for Chefs. You dont see Iron Chefs or Master Chefs treating each other that way. These contestants have a lot to learn about the Food Industry and the Cultural aspect of it. Yes, they're cooking chops may be impressive, but their manners in the kitchen are substandard.

If you have seen and liked the Bravo series, Top Chef, then you will enjoy this similar cooking (and traveling) series.

enjoyed the travel aspect of the show - the contestents had to find their way around each episode in a different country and learn the local cuisine. Will there be a second season? I hope so.
