Why do tv chefs have to spoil perfectly good recipe by glugging half a bloody bottle of olive oil all over it at the end???!!! I just think it's gross.
I fully expect you all to shoot me down in flames, but just hope maybe 1 or 2 will agree....grin

I know what you mean. It's not that great.

Oh I agree with you.

depends if it's nice olive oil, depends if they then burn the oil and turn it all rancid...

Ha - I was just watching a certain young chef doing that on TV a little while ago and thought the very same thing!! I love olive oil but really don't see why each and every dish needs to be "finished off" with it...doesn't it then make everything taste the same... hmm

no, you are nor being unreasonable at all.

Jamie Oliver is the worst for that, and repeatedly does it on the same dish as if he hasn't done 4 times already

It's nice on the body before making love

Imvho you only need a surplus of olive oil when it is on a plate, perhaps with a dash of balsamic vinegar, and its sole purpose in life is to have bread dipped into it.

Otherwise, sprinkled over everything willy nilly, it just makes everything taste, horribly oily.

Nigella is also a devil for this.

Hullygully is that a first cold press extra virgin organic or any common or garden olive oil...? grin

cookielove Fri 25-Sep-09 21:53:05

i prefer to use bio oil just before 'making love' at least then i'm killing two birds with one stone grin

I can just imagine 'oiling' DH before sex with a Jamie Oliver flourish with my v expensive First cold press yadda yaddda olive oil. Perhaps I should give him a quick grind of black pepper and sea salt too - ?

spicybingowings Fri 25-Sep-09 21:57:57

Dh says he's up for it, if I am. grin not sure if this is as funny as I'm finding it or if its the wine!

But, what about the sheets?? They would be all oily.

spicybingowings Fri 25-Sep-09 22:21:25

And what would you smell like?

hullygully Fri 25-Sep-09 22:25:57

You'd smell olivey and sunkissed and go all slipsliding about. It's great. Better than space docking.

pinknosedevereux Fri 25-Sep-09 22:32:39

Crikey! What's space docking? I daren't google it; I
don't want to get a whole load of porn!

hullygully Fri 25-Sep-09 22:33:54

ajamore Fri 25-Sep-09 22:37:15

cookielove Fri 25-Sep-09 22:45:21
