Aahhhh Nigella.

If she's on the telly, Mr Bubo must not be disturbed. He hangs onto her every word, almost crawling into the tv. Sitting there, fascinated by her.

He has never, ever cooked in his life.

Who's the obnoxious pr1ck that's always on the LLS, fat, loves his own voice, gone bust more times than anybody I've ever heard, over and back to London with his "organic" range

I prefer Nigella and Jamie’s early books, than watching their programmes. They both have cracking recipes! Nigel Slater’s ponderousness does my head in.
Diana Henry has great books and I have one book by Sarah Raven from which I have cooked loads of recipes.
Rachel Allen’s accent is such a turn off. I like Rick Stein but he seems to have this melancholy air about him.
Who is Mark Moriarity who has appeared out of nowhere? Why him?
And I’m afraid on tv I do not “get” Catherine Fulvio. She had her own show yesterday, no charm, so bland and boring, boring boring.

Pornhub is free, you know. You can literally just see women cooking in the absolute nip.

I remember being forced to watch some series on Netflix, I think it was called The "Art" of Food or something. It had already gotten off to a bad start with a title like that, but sweet baby jesus, I have never been more bored in my life. And I've seen Waiting for Godot. Just wanted to end it all there and then.


You know what's even worse than that? Cooking on the radio!!!

Seems unhygienic somehow... plus where's the mystery!

I love Rory O'Connell. I find his show so comforting and almost therapeutic!

In terms of obnoxious chefs, I have always found Dylan McGrath awful, but thankfully have never seen him on a cooking programme, just on interviews.

Anthony Bourdain was the finest of them all, but it involved travel. A true loss

100%..Anytime I wanted or need to look up a recipe I just go on YouTube..

I always wanted to try and make a really good spaghetti carbonara like the actual Italians make it as opposed to your local pub grub carbonara... I like watching Gennaro Contaldo’s cooking and recipes because he doesn’t try to make things too ‘impressive’, there is zero bullshît, just about explaining how to use the best ingredients, how to cook, flavor, garnish and eNjoy... all with enthusiasm and intelligence....he’s the best.

Guy Fieri on the other hand, hmmmm

They're all just playing catch up to the late and the great Keith Floyd, God rest his pickled soul.








And all done to that theme tune by The Stranglers.

Definitely James Martin. His stupid fat head. Love grumpy Rick Stein though.
