you know, the one with the proles on it.
No Michel Roux Jr :(
Still psyched though
according to the RT. Well not the *original* format, but you know what I mean. That's good, isn't it? I didn't even watch the last series.
hope they've aussie'd it up a bit mind
with a knowing, wry smile on the trailer filled my heart with glee.
Also we'll get the great early rounds you don't get on the professionals where a guys serves up a solitary boiled carrot with a bite taken out of it
At least they're getting straight into cooking.
Grade A chump
masterchef =/= cooking a steak
my first girlfriend
weird, she has aged.... wait a minute so must I have.... eeeek mortality
Wisnae expecting that.
But I can see her getting annoying quite quickly.
I can imagine spending any more than about 15 minutes with her would be absolutely exhausting.
All I need is for Moby to shout GO and I'd be raving.
STOP USING THE TWIN PEAKS MUSIC.
very decent cook but I was hoping for Terry Mark II and didn't get it.
I already hate you.
a bit of a fuckin idiot really
I thought she was nailed on to be indie bedwetter wank fodder, but the backlash started before it even began.
Her time came too soon </3
and I want to see some really shit food in the early rounds, not just the best 24. A slightly dull lemon tart and a well cooked but boring steak don't cut it.
the standard seems higher than the early rounds of professionals
Where are the culinary disasters like the man who grated butter because he thought it was cheese?!? That's what I watch Masterchef for.
Not so good standard wise, but still gutted some of the absolute Butter-grating chancers don't get on NATIONAL TV.
Noone can tell the difference between sea trout and salmon. I'd struggle to be honest, especially if filleted already.
Sliced Tomatos and Quail Egg man - you could tell he really didn't get a hoot.
Challenge Lex/Anneka - could probably be entitled to feel a bit unlucky after making a decent enough lime sponge and parfait thing, especially as Mr Hot Lobster Linguine vs cold scallop tartare got through after making a hash of both his dishes and burning garlic repeatedly. Plus the man clearly has no idea of how to put a dish together. Rabbit - with a pigeon on top. It's not a freakish pigeon derby you fucking dunce. Lovely Lovely bloke though and very affable and a proper country bumpkin!
Er - the one with glasses and curly hair was pretty damn attractive, and they both obviously wanted her to 'go through' but they couldn't even consider it after the balls up on her uncooked tart. Oh well, better luck next time. Also her pigeon looked like shit, but Greg seemed to like it FAR TOO MUCH. Dirty beggar.
Little lost boy - nervous, but BOnKeRs. I think he'll probably be a quick learner.
Plate of meat lady. "I think it probably had too much meat" Not shit, Sherlock. Still good enough to go through definitely.
Crying Iranian Mum. Great dessert, apparently her weak point, but I thought she might actually have a breakdown in the professional kitchen - fair play to her, she improved a lot.
John screaming at lobsterboy - actually went on for 2/3 seconds longer than I expected. Maybe next week he'll plunge a knife into someones chest in frustration....maybe.
Masterchef - cooking does get tougher than this, but it's still pretty awesome.
p.s. the Head Chef in that restaurant in Camden last week - what a massive CUNT.
was trying to do this a bit too quickly before I get told off by my colleagues.
None of them should have gone through.
Matt - terrible in all rounds. No concept of what should be on a plate, but he tries hard and cares.
Posh Kid - cook a crap kiev and then cook something 'bonkers'. But he's different and young.
Doctor lady - I cant understand how she went through. A meat platter??
Iranian lady - food looked amazing, but she will struggle.
All the rest were toss, especially Sanjay.
If these are the best 24 amateur chefs in the country then something is wrong with this country.
did for his next dish a really good meal but with a whole, unpeeled orange just placed right in the middle of it cos he took the criticism to heart and was dead offended.
John and Gregg are ramping it up a bit too much for me, the bit where Gregg picked up the big bit of meat was ridiculous.
They should have showed the earlier rounds as that's where the comedy is.
That Aki made some decent looking food but so similar to last years winner. Generally it seems contestants with ethnic backgrounds have more of a food identity which makes it easier for them to impress.
Squashed, semi-chinese John Cusack was alright though.
I used to like Torode but I'm starting to hate him. Makes me cringe. Using the word cringe makes me cringe.
- Gregg and Aki having a little exchange of increasingly mental reaction shots whilst she was being judged
- Gregg tucking into the pigeon with his hands as John looked on like a disapproving parent who has stopped trying to correct his behaviour
- Gregg doing some weird single laugh after that Iranian woman had given her passionate speech after wowing John
