Oh Steve, Steve, you are going to upset some people.
Now I have decided views on TV chefs.
Nigella just annoys me, soft porn. With a bit of food and fake life.
Nigel Slater, now his old cookery books, before he became a sleb, were in fact pure food loveliness, I used to read his books and salivate. But in person on the telly, nah.
The absolute reverse applies with Gary Rhodes. I have always hated him on TV. But my god his recipes are good.
John Torode in his Masterchef persona is annoying, but his more recent TV has actually been pretty good.
I agree with you about Mary Berry.
And let’s face it there is just too much food on the TV these days. In fact, there is just too much TV.
You know who’s food I admire just lately? Steve Snores. He’s pretty good. And there’s always a bit of room for some little tweaking to suit tastes. He’s my new fave chef.
