Inedible to Incredible Reviews
I’ll be honest with you. I did not see the premiere of the TLC cooking series Inedible to Incredible starring cheflebrity John Besh. I was seeing the A-Team instead (not bad by the way and quite funny). So, I have collected some snipits of two early reviews with links to read each review in it’s entirety.
By Rick Ellis for allyourtv.com:
John Besh is one of those celebrity chefs who seem tailormade for television. He has a restrained and witty persona that allows the viewer to see that while he is a very serious chef, he also understands that food should be joyful and fulfilling. That’s probably one of the reasons why the New Orleans-based chef has appeared on everything from “Top Chef Masters” to “The Next Iron Chef” (he was the runner-up in season one).
Besh finally gets his own show this week and after watching a few of the 30-minute episodes, I can tell you that “Inedible To Incredible” might be my favorite new food show of 2010.
The concept of “Inedible To Incredible” is a mash-up of TLC’s long-running “What Not To Wear” and the Food Network’s “Rescue Chef.” But that touchstone description doesn’t do the show justice.
From Robert Lloyd for the LA Times:
In Scott Collins’ excellent Sunday Calendar story on TLC, he was apparently too distracted by the network’s more sensational series (big families, little people, cake, Sarah Palin’s upcoming thingumabob) to mention “What Not to Wear,” not only the best show on TLC, but the best of all makeover shows, and possibly the best reality series going. (It’s the one I sit down to watch for pleasure, in any case.) It is formulaic to a fare-thee-well, but it’s a formula that leads to changed lives, not just new looks, and it works time after time. Hosts Stacey London and Clinton Kelly have a simple message: You are already good, you could just dress better — to flatter your figure (they don’t care if you’re fat, or short, or your legs go up to armpits), to embody your spirit, to reflect your age. They want to get you out of your old dry rut and into the river of life.
“Inedible To Incredible” premiered on TLC on Monday, June 21st, 2010. It airs each Monday 10/9 C.
