Great British Menu

Postby TeresaFoodie » March 20th, 2019, 7:52 pm

Tonight 8pm BBC2. I didn't see that coming. No trailers or anything? Mind you, I do watch less TV these days.

Anyone else going to be watching?

Be interesting to see if format has changed...

At least the set has changed a bit. I found myself morecinterested in watching GBM rather than Masterchef.

Missed it .. must find it on catch up. Can't bear Masterchef, the presenters and woman with stupid voice spoil it.

I fell asleep through GBM and MC in the end! Missed both. I was quite excited about the music theme for GBM but then comfy tiredness took over. That and my cosy armchair.

I'm with some of you when I say that last night's lot were really poor. Their desserrts in particular were badly thought out and very poorly presented. I'm afraid the current format just doesn't suit the programme and boredom sets in after the first dish of the evening.

I thought previous rounds were much better ... I’m sure Wales must have better chefs than those three ... two of them seemed to be no more than adequate sous chefs ... able to cook but had absolutely no imagination in responding to the brief and just didn’t understand how to combine flavours and textures ... I thought Phil Howard looked totally exasperated.

Just catching up with the Banquet.
OMG - Andrew Ridgely! (I vaguely remember PP saying she taught him ?). He looks like a distinguished elder :lol: .

Not quite EM! I used to throw him and George Michael out of the music room so that I could teach my cello pupils! :o :aww:

I looked him up = he's 56 :o :o. I feel very old sometimes, he was DD's era, the stars of mine who are still alive are ancient. (Mick Jagger's doing well after his heart valve op though!).

The banquet food looked very good I thought.

Me too Suffs - it even though was not for me. It looked great fun and highly technical. I don't know how folk has room for dessert though after the huge portions of chicken.
