Did anyone see the new show Chocolate Wars on TLC? I thought it was pretty good! It's obviously being filmed in the same studio/kitchens as Ultimate Cake Off. They changed the colors of the kitchens and chef's jackets but it's very similar in style as UCO.
I have never worked with chocolate myself but I love seeing the show pieces. I look forward to more shows!
No Kim I didn't see that. Did it air tonight? Have you seen The Little Chocolateers? (don't know if I spelled that correctly) That show is too funny.
I only watched the first minute or two of it. I was more interested in the show that aired right before... it's called Best Food Ever, narrated by John Goodman. Episode 2: (titled something like Top 10 Best Bodacious Bakeries across the U.S.) was entertaining! The only bakery mentioned that I had ever heard of was Michelle & Vinnie's Bleeding Heart Bakery.
Chocolate Wars was amazing. I thought the girl who won both challenges should have won the whole thing. I didn't care for the winner's teddy bearish looking monkeys and the giraffe was creepy... IMO.
I thougth the same...Ginger should have won...!
I like the Little Chocolatiers too! Anything food related in fact!
I caught that Top 10 Bakeries the other night and the #10 one was right here in Arizona, downtown Mesa.
What is the name of the Mesa restaurant you referred to?
I moved here to Missouri from Queen Creek about 10 years ago and still enjoy hearing about my previous home.
I missed Chocolate Wars and will have to try to DVR it in the future. I still have several episodes of Cake Off and Challenge to catch up on. Good heavens, the food shows are such fun. I am only glad I can record them but hate to get so behind.
The bakery/cafe that was featured on the Best Food Ever series in Mesa, AZ is called Sweet Cakes.
