    Rude chefs and rude customers.

    This made me chuckle a little bit because it reminded me of a restaurant/cafe that was a mere five mins from my house where they were so rude and unpleasant it became a reason to go. So is this just really good free publicity for this chef? I think it probably is. Have you had any experiences...

    Sir des Britten r.i.p

    I grew up with this guy on tv, never really took much notice on his cooking shows. Top chef, I think he even had restaurants in the uk. Knighted for services for homeless and hungry. A kiwi who deserved his knighthood. Russ

    Joel Robuchon

    Death announced yesterday, another great chef lost this year. Achieved more Michelin stars than anyone else, ever (31!) and also famed for perfecting mashed potato (allegedly with 50% butter) and for throwing a plate at a young Gordon Ramsey.

    Are We Chefs or Cooks?

    I could have sworn a topic like this was posted already. But, if it is, I can't find it. So, let's start the discussion here. A year or so after I started taking cooking seriously, I recall doing something cool with a particular recipe. I can't recall what that thing was, but I do recall that...

    Who are your favourite TV Chefs and Programmes?

    My favourites chefs are James Martin and Paul Hollywood (who is actually a master baker). I also like Nigel Slater, who is a cook and food writer, journalist, and broadcaster, and Nigella - who couldn't like her? I trust their recipes implicitly, even if what I cook from their recipes doesn't...
