Meet Maura and Joe. We somehow did not expect to meet a couple like this at a Food Network reality series competition but dreams make people do unusual things. They are not brash and loud but articulate and soft-spoken. This does not mean they do not know their food as well as the other competitors and when Maura speaks of Joe's cooking, well ... you just know she isn't exaggerating. Here is their post-audition interview, an appropriate choice, we feel, for Valentine's Day.
Since we met Maura has informed us they they, too, have been selected to go on to the next level of competition. Congratulations! I really want to try that Osso Bucco.
