Anyone see the ad for Mark Moriarty's new show?

What a boring boring person.

"I'm going to show you how you can cook good simple food at home, without going to the restaurant."

"These will be recipes you will want to eat"...well yeah Mark, that's generally what a cooking show is about..

He popped up on the Today Show in the last few years. He is just very dull. I'm convinced he has somebody inside RTÉ helping him out.

And all done to that theme tune by The Stranglers.
Christ, no. Could never stand Floyd. Have never once seen him prepare anything that looked even vaguely appetising.

Gordon Ramsay and his hysterics is tedious to watch, he’s never off the tele either.

Does seem a bit pointless alright. A bit like mime on the radio.

On a related note (well, somewhat) RTE radio sports news in the mornings used to play clips of the radio commentary of goals from the previous nights matches. What the hell was that about ? They may still be doing it for all I know. Bizarre.

Every show in his kitchen nightmares series had exactly the same plot arc. Gordon goes in, doesn’t like the food. Goes into the kitchen and usually finds some disgusting and unhygienic food storage. Gives them a new menu, goes out on the local streets to entice people with the new food. Has a few screaming matches with the owner/chef (“wheres your passion ?”) Then they make up, he redesigns the restaurant for them, they take his menu advice and everyone lives happily ever after. The end.

It’s entertains the first few times, but gets tired pretty quickly.

Saw him doing one of his restaurant 'rescues' years ago. There was a young lad in the kitchen, a bit slow I thought. But good ol' hardman Ramsay decided here was a handy punchbag. Slapping the young lad across the back of the head a number of times, and the lad going down liked a whipped dog and slouching off out of harms way till the next instructive slap. I remember the red mist on me at the time, thinking "if that was my brother or son.....". In fairness, I wouldn't be as big and tough as yer man, but a cast iron skillet is a great leveller.

You're right, I wouldn't. But if ever someone deserved it......

I'm never seen Gordan slap anyone, he never does that.

Well, painful as this will be, I'm going to try very hard to find it. I DID see it, it was appalling, and I was amazed that : it was televised, and that there was no torrent of outrage at it.

It was early on in the whole Gordon Ramsay thing and was set in the north of England I think. Like a cafe type place, but bigger.

Astonished at the lack of outrage towards that river cottage nonsense.

I used to watch a thing where it was just the food cooking, no commentary or anything, just the food spinning around as it cooked. When it's cooked I can take the food out and eat it.
