Agreed. I sort of understand the "she reads cookbooks," but in reality, most of you are probably regurgitating recipes you've tasted or seen prepared elsewhere. This is Masterchef, a home chef show, not a professional culinary artist show.
The passion part really confused me, too. It's a pompous comment and I'm glad it's seemed to fuel Monti's fire. The whole snobbish "foodie" culture of the last decade is pushing my patience. I love food, enjoy cooking, enjoy trying new things, but there seems to be an attitude that if I'm not on Facebook making out with my local farmer, getting a tattoo of an eggplant, rejecting Food Network or eating fois gras out of a little spoon, than I'm not really into food that much. ETA: To be fair, I think those who strive to eat local and such are doing a great thing. I'm just getting sick some people that go to extreme lengths to work it into every.single.conversation, then brag about the new $400 Coach purse they bought.
