Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Tiny Food Fight is a cooking competition show where the twist is that chefs make tiny food in tiny kitchens. Hosted by YouTube star Mamrie Hart and judged by "Superchef" Darnell Ferguson, each episode has contestants create real, less-than-bite-sized dishes using a miniature kitchen filled with tiny but functional appliances. Hart plays up the kitschiness of the premise, while the contestants usually show some self-awareness and sense of humor about the task ahead of them. Nevertheless, some practical cooking advice does come out of the challenges, including how to adapt meals to tricky environments.
Is It Any Good?
A lot of cooking competition shows have some level of absurdity, enough so that chefs often look into the camera and wonder how they got there. Tiny Food Fight takes that absurdity and puts it on the front burner, as contestants may understand they're there to make tiny food but also don't realize they'll be working in tiny kitchens. Everyone involved treats the proceedings with the exact amount of humor they deserve. The one problem is that the show itself feels like it's meant to be consumed in small bites, and a full season of half-hour episodes lets the premise bake for too long. As the old saying goes, if you've seen one chef grilling a wagyu burger in a centimeter-long pan, you've seen them all.
