well.. I'm a bit of an MKR junkie myself.

I've learned quite a lot over the last few yrs, techniques and such... but I also enjoy watching the people. Always a fave of mine... watching people.

I know it is not spontaneous.. that's obvious... but... few people can deceive effectively, and … I doubt these people are actors.,


whatever.. having spent many years in catering, I find it highly amusing. :bgrin

I prefer MasterChef. I don’t copy the recipes, just like to see people cooking with some passion!

(Body Odor as Mod of the Food MBR on OzPol has made it such a sad, irrelevant MBR, what a waste!)

I watch a lot of cooking shows yet never bother getting exact recipes. There is the enjoyment of the passion for food, there are some lovely general ideas to be gotten etc. Sufficient. If I want recipes I will consult a cookbook, I have like 4 metres/15' shelf space of cookbooks (and like 4' of brewbooks!)

Sorry guys but the best cooking show on TV, bar none is Maeve O'meara Food Safari on SBS.

She's a lovely lady and develops a wonderful rapport with every day people from every corner of the globe who've chosen to live in Australia.
She goes into their home, gets their back story then mucks in to help them cook a family feast or one of their favourite 'come home to mamma' comfort foods.
And of course she visits restaurants to see professionals at work so you get a bit of the flash chef routines, and every day home stuff as well.

I had to go and get suckered in to watching MKR !!
Villains and all!
But I read, Josh and his brother, are not real cooks, they were spotted by the MKR people, on some media, and asked Josh to join MKR, and Josh asked his brother, who has never cooked anything in his life.
Well, the crap they put on everyone, now, Sunday, they are the cooks, and looks like they quit or something.

Should be interesting....stay tuned for Sunday MKR!!!

I enjoy both shows - but MKR is my favourite. That's disappointing news about Josh and Austin. I was just beginning to like their honesty and was hoping they would stay around for a while. Iggy and Romel are annoying. I think that Josh was right when he said he bet they both did a Masterchef class before they had to cook. I can't imagine MKR actually allowing them to progress too far. The viewers would be annoyed at the unfairness of having professionals pitted against amateurs.

there is a difference between being honest, and being deliberately rude. They were after the shock value, not honesty.

Should be some nice food here this weekend;

A chicken stock is slowly coming into being on the stove: Sunday will be a nice 3 course meal of chicken soup, ravioli with spinach and ricotta then veal, either as a schnitzel or saltimbocca followed by pannacotta and a puree of raspberries.

Tomorrow, chicken schnitzel and beurre bosc pears poached whole in a sugar syrup with spices including saffron and dry white wine.

Everything was pretty nice.

I followed my own thoughts re the pears. White wine, water, sugar. Few cloves, couple bits star anise, lemon zest. Plenty saffron.

Tasted. . .weird but nice. Too much saffron, I think, and all water no wine might be better.
