He was on Masterchef last night saying that he has sacrificed family and friends for cooking; if he had to take off his chef's coat right now he would be absolutely nothing; cooking is his life etc etc etc.

AIBU to think he just prepares fancy food, he is not saving lives or undertaking ground breaking research or writing great literary novels... he is just preparing fancy food?

It sounds horrible and expensive.

Do the I'm a Sleb contestants really get bussed in to camp in the morning? [naive]

Lol at the dodgy fork use.

I am surprised at le gavroche being 50 quid ish. That's cheaper than I thought for lunch. I might treat dd - she would be thrilled.

You never see Marcus Wareing & Roger the Alien from Family Guy in the same room.

I gather Tom Kitchen is doing duck and duck fat chips tonight. Probably yummy, but where's the veg ! Off to watch now ....

I love Tom Kitchin. I want to put him in my pocket and carry him home. Talk about a man with a gorgeous wife.

Don't tell me who gets put off. I won't get a chance to watch it until tomorrow.

Greg pisses me off. He's a greedy green grocer and that's it.

If YOU were a chef on MC would you give a shiney shite what Greg thought of your grub? No, you wouldn't you'd listen to and be hanging on to ever word Monica and Michel uttered and just think STFU when he started droning on wouldn't you?

No idea. It's my own, personal theory. Or that the "Jungle" is just an elaborate film set and there are nice, comfy trailers just off camera.

Quite ! I love masterchef pros but spend most episodes with an internal monologue of "Fuck off Greg. Noone gives a shiny shite what you think".

getorfs, the tasting menu is round about £95 I think nowadays. Probably about £150 with the selected wines per course. It's a top bargain as you get 6-7 courses and a glass of wine individually selected per course. Ie. a LOT of wine grin

Ah, actually it was Tom Kerridge who's doing the duck and he's on tonight ... I posted hastlly last night as I was dashing off to watch ....
In the trailers he looks like a sweety who treats the contestants really kindly so I'm looking forward to watching again tonight smile

I wanted them both to go through!

I've just realised - we dont say 'ten minutes until dinner/school/bedtime... LittlePaw'.

I have just yelled 'Ten minutes to service' (ie until he needs to do his homework). He yelled back 'Yes chef -better start plating up!'.

I was a bit meh about Michel.

Not any more. I love his enthusiastic little face. He seems like a lovely man.

That Wareing chap got on my tits nerves. Well scary. Oli was just fab though wasn't he? Lovely lad.
