Masterchef

Post by Nick Barlow on Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:32 pm

Anyone else who watches this? It's all a bit silly at times - especially when John and Gregg are shouting at each other, but a good half hour of telly in the end. I'm still waiting for someone to serve up a bowl of sugar with cream on top to Gregg, as I'm sure that would be his perfect dessert.

Oh, and I've only heard bits of the early McGann audios - does India Fisher sound as husky on those, or has she started up a 60-a-day habit since then?

You're correct, of course - but so is Nick.

She definitely does sound much huskier than in the early BF audio's. It's probably not a 60-a-day habit - much more likely 20-25 a day.

Huge, huge, huge fans of Masterchef in the Frank household. We're very keen on 24 year old Chris cos we see his appeal to the gays. But it's an utterly ridiculous programme, edited to within an inch of its life. I do hope you recite the opening salvo from Greg and John...'cooking doesn't get TOUGHER than this'...'we're looking for someone who can cook EXCEPTIONAL food'. It's a weekly shouting contest.

And Greg is hilarious when he's describing food....'Mmmm, deep, creamy, and then going to a hint of chilli'. He said 'Beefy, beefy mushrooms' tonight and we fell off the sofa laughing. Love it.

After watching last night, am I alone in not liking the ingredients test and the passion test? I can see what they're trying to test there, but it just seems to me that it would be very annoying to win through your heat, but then not get to cook again because you couldn't convince them you were sufficiently passionate to win.

As for the ingredients test, rather than a 'what's this called?' test, IMO it should be showing they can differentiate between different grades of the same thing and explaining how they'd use it in a dish.

One final thing - how many times do you think they've had to edit out someone pointing out they had an 18-year-old in the final last year when they ask 'do you think you're old enough/experienced enough?'

the ingredients test can be elitist, if, for example, you come from a small area like mine, we have loads of wonderful local produce: beef, lamb, cheese beer and fish, you have very little chance to see the likes of smoked cod roe, or a lot of the imported veg etc.
