Should be good - anything with Anthony Bourdain in is fantastic.
stop lying to everyone and yourself
And no doubt I will be forced to sit through every episode
At least with stuff like the Voice and the X-Factor its a product you can consume - even if all it is is singing and maybe dancing - but watching someone eat and comment on a spoonful of food?
other than Come Dine With Me, obvs
while groaning in delight - this show is literally going to be 4 pundits sticking spoons in their gobs
the foods were all on plastic spoons
Yeah - PLASTIC - Bet they'll just chuck them in the bin afterwards too
Didn't even manage to get a full-blown hug though, sucker. Also this Bourdain bloke is a fucking hero.
A cooking talent show in which food is prepared by, eaten by, and then shat out of some of Britain's top amateur cooking talents. Then the 'completed product' is analysed by the panel of judges -- Gillian McKeith, Tim Robbins, and Laura Dern -- who decide who is the best at cooking based on the dung.
The competitors will be systematically voted out until one remains and he or she will be the lucky winner of a Pac Man air freshener
will definitely pick her over the other two everytime and it'll be farcical
Who would pick her? You can learn off some badass French chef (ok I hadn't heard of him before but he's got some credentials), fucking Anthony Bourdain or someone who can make a really indulgent chocolate brownie!
His No Reservations show is a-maz-ing and you can find a lot of it on youtube (and on random foody channels on sky).
Also his book, Kitchen Confidential, is excellent.
I meant fucking Anthony Bourdain in a good way.
It was ok, still got a bit of cooking but it was mostly a judgefest as per talent shows. Nigellas boobies were nice
I want to be him
But before this show I never really *felt* it, yanno?
I've read Kitchen Confidential but never seen him on anything. I liked him a lot.
The product of some TV guys saying, well, cooking is popular, and so is The Voice, I know, lets....
Bourdain is so awesome on No Reservations, this just felt way way beneath him.
Also, humans you know nothing about, and get to learn nothing about get judged and you are supposed to care. i didn't want a whole "I'm doing it for me nan" thing, but something to work with, so you can at least decide you like them or not first.
That's all I could focus on.
Like when you try and use the soup spoons in a Chinese restaurant to shovel up rice and stuff. No elegant way of doing it.
is kitchen confidential by bourdain. I've been slightly in love with him ever since reading it (I think it must have been about 2002 as I was a trainee at the time and thinking, why am i doing this boring shit, why am i not a chef ? he is a bit of a cunt though. Swoon.)
And I'm a total bellend.
How do you like me now?
it took me years to get away frommy Number One (#1 A+++) fantasy of being bent over a hot stove by Big Hun Gordon Ramsay and paddled with a fish slice while he swears a lot.
i am not going down this road again.
