Hello Everyone.  Another Lovely day here in Japan and I started the day watching “Hell’s Kitchen Season 9 Episode 14” the most recent.  It’s just getting crazy watching the show, I just wish that they stop the country “BLOCK” so I can watch cooking from other countries.  I think my favorite cooking show are Hell’s Kitchen, Top Chef US and Australia, Junior Top Chef was great, and I guess any show from Food Network and the Food Channel.  What are you favorite Cooking Show?  I usually have my hubby search all over the internet for these show cause of the block. (~_~)  Well, Let’s get back to the cooking.
