Is It Any Good?

While Besh is as kind as he can be about letting each cook know that his or her cooking is really bad, the show's ambush aspect is a little bit paranoia inducing ("Gee, if her family is lying about her cooking, is my family lying to me?") But other than that, Besh's instruction is sound and mostly entertaining. He emphasizes fresh foods cooked properly; not all of his cooking is low-fat, per se, but he definitely points out opportunities for cooks to be healthier. The best part, though, is that Besh really encourages passion and good taste.
