The lovely Michel Roux Jr is bringing back the Food & Drink show

(61 Posts)

He is fab and an example to other chefs in how to behave. No need for all that sweary nonsense. It looks like Tom Kerridge is also going to co-present and he is also lovely. I will be watching. It's starting next Monday on BBC2.

Back off! Michel is mine grin

Tom Kerridge is lovely too, I'd love to take DH to his pub.

My friend's sister lives 5mins from The Hand & Flowers and she goes there once a month. envy

Tonight?

It's on BBC2 tonight, although it's on at 8.30pm (the other day I read it as 8pm).

Well back in the day when I was a very junior TV Production Runner, I used to work on the original Food and Drink with Jilly and Oz organsing the wine tastings in our board room! I am pleased to say they were both absolutely lovely people and we had a ball, especially doing the Champagne at Christmas! One of my claims to fame is that Oz taught me how to open a bottle of fizz!!

You lucky thing Sallster! What a great job. envy

Yep, that bit of it was great - sadly there were also a lot of things that weren't such fun!!

Well I am ridiculously excited, I am so in loove with Michel, but I have a major soft spot for Tom as well, he has the most lovely face. Everything tonight will revolve around it.

That roast looks superb!

Loving it! They're both so nice and seem to get on.

Yummy so far, and they food looks good too grin.

Bug burger anyone?!

Isn't it a great programme?! Except I didn't realise Tom was quite that large when I saw him on Masterchef the Professionals and he makes MRJr look absolutely tiny shock I do think he's great though and they make a great pair.

Aren't Michel's teeth blinking white? grin

On a fast day so it would have been torture for me to watch this but looking forward to watching it on iPlayer tomorrow!

JiltedJohnsJulie Mon 04-Feb-13 21:02:29

No thanks gail, had 2 for tea and just couldn't manage another.

Wing they are good together aren't they, if slightly comical looking. Love the woman who is suggesting wines too.

Now for Dancing on the Edge.....

I get the feeling the lovely Michel has a guest presenter each week, as next week it looks like Mary Berry.

South did the fast diet for a while last year and am going to start it again soon, once I've got over this bloody chest infection. Can completely see why watching the food and drink programme would be an issue on a fast day.

Did you get The Fast Diet when it was the kindle daily deal on Saturday?

Hi jilted No, because I'd already bought it. It's working a treat so far but I can't stress enough how important it is to keep busy on fast days and probably avoiding any food and drink shows! Counting down the hours now untill I watch this tomorrow night with dinner and a glass or two of wine...

Dreams I think you're right as it did say 'guest presenter -Tom Kerridge' in the closing credits.

I thought it was really interesting and fun although I couldn't watch the mealworm burger section yuck

I really enjoyed it, but thought it felt a bit rushed at only half an hour. Surely it used to be an hour long in the old days? I would have been quite happy to have had more (even though I was on a fast day too).

I was on a fast day yesterday too Southeast so didn't dare watch. I have only just now watched this. I enjoyed it too, but one hour would have been better than half. Tom and Michel are lovely. I liked Kate too.

Loved this. Tom Kerridge is my favourite, I'm desperate to go to hid pub and stay.

Loved his 3 types of cider, sleeping cider, dancing cider and fighting cider!

Yes, Tom is very down to earth!

Oooh, I don't know. I watched it last night and thought it quite bland. Needs more seasoning despite MRJr and TK
