Being that I am a chef myself I sometimes like to tune in and watch food shows. I was watching Masterchef and it started out pretty good. If you dont know what master chef is about, let me briefly explain. Ordinary people from all over the United States come and try to impress the judges with their cooking, the interesting thing is that none of these people have any professional culinary background. These are folks with normal everyday jobs. During the second week of the show the contestants had to prove to the judges that they can properly dice and slice onions. (This is where it got very interesting for me) Half of the people there had no idea how to properly do this and the other half did. I laughed at this challenge because I do this at work everyday. Cutting an onion is like breathing, It just becomes second nature. As of that moment the show had gotten even more interesting because I can't wait to see what they will be up to next week. Obviously they do things like these for ratings, who wants to watch people perfect everything right?
