I'm afraid I have to have a rant about bad hygiene on "Come Dine with Me". Some people taste whatever's cooking in the pan with a spoon, then put it straight back in the pan - yuck! Last week this guy took a big mouthful from the spoon, then licked it again and put it back in the pan!! And some of them can be right food snobs!! Rant over wink

Oh that's not the worst I've seen! Cheese "warming" in bloke's trouser pocket anyone? grin

I can't watch when they're handling raw chicken and then open cupboard doors, handle crockery etc without washing their hands.

Very watchable though isn't it? grin

did you not see the lady who tried several times to make a meringue, about 4-5 attempts she really wasn't happy and had run out of eggs, so she took her orignal attempt out of the bin and served that!!!!!

Yuck shock

Stinkyfeet - I didn't see that one, how disgusting!! hocuspontas - yes, that's a particular hate of mine - I guess I'm maybe too far the other way, love my anti-bac spray and am very careful with raw meat!! Yes, it is very watchable, I love it, particulary the commentary!! smile

I also saw one where the bloke took a tray out of the oven and rested it on top of the bin!

cookielove - I'm sure I'd have remembered that one, so no, I didn't see it!!! Beggars belief! smile

Oh yes, discoball, and he told his guests his unique method while they were eating it!

I didn't see the meringue one - yuck!

I love watching this.

I was going to start a thread on the ones that were on Thursday, in the first episode I was shocked at the reactions for when the diners found out it would be an alcohol free night due to the hostess religious beliefs and practices. One of the guys was a bit out of line IMO and I was muttering "wanker" in my head. Though later in his show, he did redeem himself by cooking her a non alcoholic version of a dessert he was making.

But - point - is it a social sin not to serve alcohol to people who come for dinner? If we had people for dinner, I dont know if I'd serve alcohol, not for religious reasons but 'cause I dont drink much myself.

i have to admit to finding it wierd at mils when they dont offer me a drink in the evenings
its the family you come from i think
my parents always have a drink in the evening and always offer wine with dinner to guests so i do tge same
dh is teetotal and his parents hardly drink

bigchris Sat 15-Aug-09 14:03:13

therexwas one episode though where a guest said sge didnt remember past tbe starter due to too much booze and i did think what a waste of a meal and poor host although possibly their fault for giving too much?

ElfOnTheTopShelf Sat 15-Aug-09 14:03:13

I tend to get a bottle of wine in if we have the PIL's for dinner, but thats because I'm trying to be a lickarsey DIL grin it would totally slip my mind to get alcohol in if friends were coming for dinner blush

ElfOnTheTopShelf Sat 15-Aug-09 14:03:58

I still ROFL about the woman who went off after her starter and fell asleep, leaving the guests to cook the main course!

bigchris Sat 15-Aug-09 14:06:30

i dont think i saw that one!

so if friends with kids invite me round with my kids for sunday lunch i always take a bottle as a gift, is that odd do you think?

hocuspontas Sat 15-Aug-09 14:11:03

They scored her low as well because they had no alcohol. And she'd cooked about 17 dishes but because none of them were meat it 'lacked something'. Not very adventurous last week were they? hmm

cookielove Sat 15-Aug-09 14:13:28

there was a vegan a while a go who clearly served all vegan food, but she wasn't judge down for it, she was more judged for being pushy about trying to change peoples views about meat

ElfOnTheTopShelf Sat 15-Aug-09 14:36:52

no objections with people bringing their own wine at all, just it would be the kind of thing I'd forget to buy

cheesesarnie Sat 15-Aug-09 14:38:38

the cat on the waiting plates made me say eurgh yesterday.

hocuspontas Sat 15-Aug-09 14:49:51

Was that the one where a guest found a pet hair on the plate?

juneybean Sat 15-Aug-09 14:53:56

I love CDWM lol, what about the one who put raw chicken in a steak crust and it was barely heated through I don't think.

FabBakerGirlIsBack Sat 15-Aug-09 15:53:26

I saw one this week with the posh bit who came last. I thought they were quite mean to her and the DJ who won, lied when he said she didn't congratulate him as it showed her doing so.
