A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Crazy Delicious is a whimsical competitive cooking game show where contestants are encouraged to use fresh ingredients in creative and surprising ways. Unlike many cooking shows, challenges are not built around product placement and the "garden" where contestants find their ingredients is Willy Wonka-esque and a fun twist on the standard food competition. Many of the individual challenges require fruit as an ingredient, so a lot of fun desserts get made.

What's the story?
In each episode of CRAZY DELICIOUS, three home cooks are invited to compete in a series of challenges designed to test their skill and creativity. They pick ingredients from a fantastical garden set and use them to cook dishes you wouldn't see anywhere else. The most dazzlingly creative chef is awarded the prestigious Golden Apple.
Is it any good?
The chef competitors are encouraged to flex their creativity, and often come up with legitimately surprising and exciting meals. Plus, the garden and bold colors of the set make the show a visual delight. However, the rest of Crazy Delicious follows the exact format of dozens of other cooking shows without much to distinguish it. For a show that wants its contestants to be innovative, fancy, and magical, this show could pay a little more attention to its own recipe.
