Why are TV chef's so popular?
Now why are TV chefs so big now? Well, I think it's because they've removed the pomposity from cooking. They make it look easy and ask "What's your excuse?"
Now I cook a bit, but I've avoided buying a pasta machine despite Jamie's many exclamations that freshly made pasta is the way to go.
And then he showed a roast chicken recipe on the DVD that just looked like a winner: chicken in a salt "cave."
And even the bread looked easy.
So I did a huge shop today and came back bearing pasta machine, bread tins and lots of ingredients.
It was easy! The bread recipe is so simple a kid could remember it. The chicken falls of the bones. And the mashed potato (although undoubtedly no good for one's health) with crème fraîche is a winner!
The next girl that comes to my place for dinner will be bowled over...
