Wooo-hooo - I've got tears in my eyes from laughing at nigella wobbles. How too sadly true! guess the word 'overextended' isn't in her vocabulary.

Oh, please don't get me started about Nigella.  It's self indulgent self parodying soft porn.  The actual food is way down the list of what is important.

I agree that Nigel Slater's food is excellent.  However, he really has some strange mannerisms and has some outrageous views in real life.  A friend of mine knows him. :wink:

HFW's time has come and gone.  He was a breath of fresh air at first but his voice over has become a bit grating.

I just want to slap Jamie Oliver and Gary Rhodes silly.  But, despite their flawed personalities, many of them create amazing food and I can forgive the likes of Gordon Ramsey and his ilk as long as they keep their high standards.

I watched a documentary about Fanny and we really don't want to go there again.   :?

Hey Bodger I just hope Aunty doesn't do a Googlie to find that joke - I think the shock might just see her off.

And you'd be shackled to the naughty step for the rest of your natural. If not longer. Your bones would stay there for ever as a warning to those who tell jokes about Fanny Craddock...

HOWEVER.....

In spite of all the wobbles and waddles, the eating at the bus stop, on the bus, in the taxi and making something for a friend and then eating it all on the way there (how rude!), and the raiding the fridge late at night, and the licking her fingers, and the really busy "life" she leads, and the kids and their homework (don't get me started), and doesn't the boy need a bl**dy haircut (?!) and the alleged kitchen, and the not very healthy balance of some of the dishes (no wonder she's plumpish)...

Some of the recipes are really good.

Still prefer Nigel though.

What about the ninja headband he used to wear?.  Sad or what?  But I really like his desserts cookbook.  He keeps it simple but the results are wonderful.

Where I think Jamie made a difference was that his recipes are, in general, pretty easy to follow. I think he was the first cook in a generation who made people of all ages think "I can do that - what's the worst that could happen?"

They also taste good without needing a page full of ingredients.

The Italian chappie he served his apprenticeship with and who appears on his programmes from time to time (forgottn his name) is also great to watch - committed when it matters but nicely relaxed about the "small stuff".

Apart from him, I enjoy HFW, Slater, Martin and Stein.

If Ramsay did a "straight" cooking show, rather than his awful "reality TV" stuff, I'd watch him for days as he is a wonderful cook.

Sacrilege to say it but I find Delia patronising in the extreme - I'll use her recipes from books and web, but I can't watch her on TV without my teeth starting to itch. Same with Rhodes, except his recipes are usually very ingredient-heavy and time consuming.

Nigella and Ainsley - where's my shotgun!
Veg? That's chips, innit?

I've watched some Delia, and other than her Yorkshire pudding recipe, the rest of the stuff she makes is decidedly strange.
Jamie tries to keep recipes fairly simple but does intend to set the worlds' tonsils on fire with his fetish for spicy food. However, did enjoy his ..goes to Italy show.
We get only Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares here and I won't even watch the telly ads for his show as they're a complete put off. A real chef doesn't have to turn the kitchen blue.
Nigella should just waddle back home to her stacks of money.
We get few other UK chefs here - thank goodness.

Agreed - I like to think he inspired many (well some) younger blokes to cook for their other halves... after all food is the music of love and all that...

I love Jamie Oliver, he's a local lad and we used to eat in his parents pub a lot when he was a boy. It was the first pub around here that sold interesting food.
