Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

The abundance of cooking competition shows means each new series needs something to set it apart; this show attempts to solve this problem by including presentation as part of the competition. The Five Star Chef judges openly consider chefs' visual sense, concepts, and even charisma as part of the evaluation process. But overly visualized meals can sometimes seem gimmicky, and it's always hard to convey how great food tastes to viewers who can't smell or taste it. At the end of the day, cooking competition series are personality-driven, and these chefs are presenting heavily manicured versions of themselves, which may be perfect for fine dining but is less satisfying for entertainment.
