Insofar as possible, I like to take advantage of what the earth is offering. In California, in midsummer, it offers blackberries. Our old backyard is covered in them: nasty thorny invasive weedy Himalayan blackberries. As much as I hate the plant, the fruit makes a hell of a good cocktail.
The contestants are wonderful and real, the challenges are exciting to watch, and the judges and hosts entertain and educate without being jerks.
