I'm saving my recording of this week's Chopped. Those New Orleans chefs were total class acts, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Oops -- I'm afraid you just spoiled the ending for some of us. Could I ask that you please put a "spoiler" warning on posts about competitions? That way we'll all be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

Loved the show last night. I related to it! When I was working not only the tasting went to my waistline, (I loved my own cooking too much) but being allowed to eat all you want of anything you want all day. It was a constant struggle. I worked with some fabulous chefs some were obese and some not so much. The not so much ones tended to be the ones that made ME taste everything!

I'm definitely going to watch, Michael is from my town! Here is an article from our local paper.

Main Street Bakery’s Michael Mignano will make yet another appearance on Food Network. This time it’s as a participant in the reality show “Fat Chef,” a program about obese chefs whose love and passion for food contribute to life-threatening weight problems. The show premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. on Food Network.

Mignano and 11 others spend 16 weeks trying to lose weight and develop new healthy lifestyles through diet and exercise, with the support of therapists, trainers and nutritionists.

For Mignano and the other contestants, the support is designed to help them “defeat their abusive relationships with food and become healthy,” according to Food Network’s promo.

Before “Fat Chef” went into production in October 2010, Mignano, 36, at 6 foot 2 inches, weighed nearly 500 pounds and was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, according to Huffington Post.

"You have this abundance of food all around you," he told Huffington Post. "You're doing parties, you have weddings. There's always a lot of food left over. You're constantly tasting, working late hours, eating late."

In September 2011, Mignano appeared as a contestant on Food Network’s “Sweet Genius.”

Interviewed by Patch in September, it was noted that he has gained recognition in his industry as the youngest executive chef at The Pierre in New York City, a baker at Bouley Bakery and Balthazar, and whose graham cracker, macadamia, cashew, chocolate ganache, Rice Krispies, dark chocolate, Hawaiian sea salt candy bar was touted by Oprah.

So, why, he was asked, dabble in reality television?

“I’m thinking of the next step,” he says. “I need to get on the Food Network.”

Looks like he hit that mark.

I used to like food a lot hotter. But after two babies, my digestion changed and it can't handle stuff as hot any more. Not conditioning, experience.

they do 'switch outs' constantly. Other wise most cooking shows would last hours and hours. Next time there's a 'behind the scenes' show on FN, watch it. It will explain how its done AND because of digital editing, you never see it happen, but it does.

Regarding pure heat foods: there are two ways to enjoy them- be raised around them, as I was, or learn to eat them. Most - Most people that shy away or say they can't eat pure heat foods were, sadly, taught that as they grew up and now they 'think' they believe it. As a true heat-head, peppers only burn if you want them to. Sorry grandma Hilda, but you was wrong!

I only watched it once. I totally love Aaron Sanchez, but watching them squirm and talk about the possible "consequences" the next day is a little much for me.

I haven't watched a whole show yet but you'd think Aaron Sanchez and Roger Mooking on Heat Seekers would ruin their taste buds.


I've never understood how the chefs on all the other shows can taste the foods they've made when they're way too hot to eat? (Just out of the oven, fryer, pan.) It's painful to watch sometimes:)

If it were me I'd have the producers edit in or switch out dishes that have cooled down, LOL!

And why on earth so many apply for these shows and then whine about the ingredients? Or how MEAN the chef/judges/whoever are? Good grief, if you know the show well enough to apply for it, you know perfectly what's going to be asked of you.

After watching so many cooking show competitions like Master Chef, Top Chef, NFNS, etc. I don't understand why if you are going to apply for one of these that you don't at least have a couple of desserts that you can make.

Most of the competitors lose on desserts.

I sure hope so. I seriously like her.

I'm still hobbled with this knee injury, but I have to try to go to work today. It's the right knee (the leg you drive with), so I am NOT looking forward t this.

Now the SunDance Channel is getting in on the act: premiering two new foodie shows 'Love/Lust' about our emotional relationship with foods, and 'Ludo' starring that hyper-french chef from Top Chef Masters a season or two ago.

"I can do all things if I just get off my but's and admit I'm in control of me!" SGM 1:1-5 The only real verse I need.

Never say you didn't have enough time: You have the same amount of time that was given to Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill.

I'll have to check that out. I don't know if my CW station carries it or not.

Just 'discovered' the Recipe.TV show. Its a morning show here carried by our local CW-Network affiliate. It has master chefs from all over America showing how they prepare whatever the theme dish is for the day. Their website is www.recipe.tv It's viewer friendly.

CW stations are considered low signal, so most dish or cable companies carry them for free.

I suspect FN is still kicking themselves for letting Buddy Valastro get away. Then again, New Jersey is the new Beverly Hills. Seems like everybody has a Jersey show these days.

Looks like 'Cake Boss' maybe getting the femme treatment with FN's new 'Tough Cookie' show.

I've noticed that as well, and I love it! I'm hoping Herb Mesa from last years NFNS will show up on either channel sooner or later.

Cooking Channel is really getting super-foodie. So far several of their regular shows have featured as guest chefs former Top Chef and NFNS contestants. Great to see what they are doing now. Also three former NFNS runner-up's now have their own shows on Cooking Channel.

I recorded 24 Hour Restaurant Battle and will watch it a bit later. I hadn't seen that Unwrapped before. Fascinating to watch the behind-the-scenes at ICA!

I was excited last night to watch Food Network Unwrapped thinking it was new but realized while watching it that it was old (from last September). But I still really enjoyed watching what goes on behind the scenes. That Paula Dean really enjoys herself! LOL!

How Sandra Lee films for only 6 weeks out of the year? I thought I heard that's how the Iron Chefs do it too?

Also watched 24 Hour Restaurant Battle last night. It was ok. Not as good as others.
