- Cooking doesn't get tougher than this
Whenever they want a knife someone would have to throw it to them from the other end of the kitchen and if they dropped it the next one would be red hot as well as razor sharp.
Or I’d get a self opinionated slightly overweight fella to dibble his fork in their cooking and make slightly disparaging remarks about it. Yeah that’d be proper tough.Posted 3 years agofreeagentMember
when i was a cook it was quite tough, so I’d recreate those conditions. no sleep for days, high on various narcotics, drunk, Paranoid, very loud reggae, that should do it
Yep, sounds familiar – worked in a restaurant kitchen when I was a student.Posted 3 years ago
Long hours, always boozing while at work, occasional ‘recreational’ drug use, loud music, poor pay… and my Dad owned the restaurant!
I like Masterchef. As the sound of a heavy knife hits the board clumsily mixed in with a house music beat, here is a translation guide:
‘I’m doing a deconstructed ….’:
a pile of bits on the plate that are usually constructed for a reason
‘I really hope he can balance those strong flavours’:
‘It’s my version of the classic’:
lots of people have made it the same way for years but I know better
‘I’m doing steamed pudding and custard’:
I’m playing up to fat bald one
The other week one of them even made a buttery biscuit base, although he spoiled it slightly by not being able to say it without smirkingPosted 3 years agowillardMember
There are celebrity plumbers? On TV?? Dammit, I’d watch that.
Masterchef isn’t bad, but it’s obvious who has a talent for cooking food that tastes nice and looks nice. I mean, why the hell did that young lass cook curried bream with apple the other night?
Now that the heats are over we should start seeing some high quality cooking which, I believe, does not get tougher than this. Although I may disagree given that I’ve seen some meals being cooked in PBs and FOBs which taste just as nice but with far less posh kit and no Waitrose larder to help them out. Nor are they being mortared. Or shot at. So not really that tough.Posted 3 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Ever seen the Junior Masterchef on CBBC?
9 year old kids knocking up considerably more appetising meals than I can manage with 30 more years on them. 😯

Just started binge watching the latest series, and heard Greg Wallace repeat the above statement ad nauseam.Posted 3 years ago
This got me thinking, how would you make cooking ‘tougher than that’?
I would personally get one of them big wild monkeys, one of them with the blue face and big red arse. I would tie it up, and whist wearing a Greg Wallace costume, punch it repeatedly about the head and face. I would then release the angry beast into the master chef kitchen, and enrage it further by making as much noise as possible (I’d probably use a one man band set up for this). Let’s see how you like them (enraged monkey shaped) apples, Greg and John!DezBSubscriber
Toughest way to cook is with a shitty oven in a tiny kitchen with one work surface taken up by the kettle. Like what I used to have in the rented bungalow I was in last year. If I had ever had those 2 Masterchef arses overlooking me while I was trying to do a Jamie’s 15 Minute meal in there, I would have gone (even more) mental.Posted 3 years ago
I’d take your angry mandrill over that any bloody day.
