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.

Meh

I really like this show at first, but the more episodes i watched, the more boring it got.

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.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the "garden." What does the Crazy Delicious set look like? What are some of the things that chefs find in the garden? Why does the show want its contestants to use food that is grown there? Does the show give you any ideas about how to use fresh food in fun ways?

  • Who are your favorite contestants? Why? What are some of the dishes you'd like to try? Did anything surprise you? Did any of the cooks convince you to try an ingredient you wouldn't otherwise like?

  • How do the judges encourage and help the competitors? Do you think they're fair? Why or why not? Did they make any decisions you disagreed with? What would you have done differently?
