I’ve seen scattered episodes of this show in the last two years. I always wish they would go into a little more detail about the techiques of preparing dishes. But, that’s reality TV for you. My questions are for those of you have have some resturant kitchen experience: Is it really as hard as they make it look? Why, even after several episodes, do some contestants have complete meltdowns at their stations?
I would expect that, once your assigned to a spot, you do your prep work and get your ingredients together for the dishes that you are responsible for, and then when a order comes in, you get busy.
I could understand the occasional bad outcome: overdone, underdone, etc. But, some of the contestants fuss about for many minutes and never produce a dish. And most of them have some cooking experience.
What are the challenges to this type of work in real life?
