It's important to realise The Taste is not about the taste, since we quite evidently can't taste it. What it is, however, is the spectacle of judgement. So when we see the Frenchman getting a little overwrought, or Mr Bourdain trying to be cool, and Nigella behaving like a school mistress, that's exactly what we are enjoying; the spectacle of judgement alone. This rather reminds me of architectural tutoring.
