Celebrity Best Home Cook

Mary Berry shocks the nation with the number of basic dishes she has never encountered.

Ed Balls makes the kind of lasagne you'd expect from a former New Labour politician.

Amazingly, Mary Berry has actually heard of shakshuka, if not Glamorgan sausages.

Catspyjamas17 - 26 Jan 2021 21:46:44 (#2 of 112)

Pork, cheddar and strawberry quiche? Jeez.

dottie30 - 26 Jan 2021 21:52:00 (#3 of 112)

I'm not a fan of shakshuka. The Turkish menemen always tasted better to me.

Catspyjamas17 - 26 Jan 2021 21:53:20 (#4 of 112)

Doo doo doo doo doo.

Oh dear, Swiss rolls are fiddly.

Catspyjamas17 - 26 Jan 2021 21:59:28 (#5 of 112)

Shame but good decision.

goldfinch - 26 Jan 2021 21:59:32 (#6 of 112)

I do love a Swiss roll.

I've never seen a fork bounce off an egg like it did with the shakshuka

Coo, the chocolate mousse looks good. Well done, Ed.

Ed Balls really lucked out by losing his seat in Parliament, he gets to do this stuff instead, bet Yvette is dead jealous.

It does appear to be cushy work. As soon as a talented chef / gardener / interior designer etc makes a name for themself and their business, they drop their own trade like a hot potato and get in front of an autocue.

Shame. Gareth was much better than Ruth.

melpomene - 27 Jan 2021 22:12:07 (#12 of 112)

He was, but he was extremely annoying.

melpomene - 27 Jan 2021 22:13:56 (#13 of 112)

I might try to make those glamorgan sausages he did yesterday though. they looked nice.

Ferne is surprising me by being pretty good. And nice. Saying that, she was never the worst on TOWIE. I like Karim, who I still think got voted off strictly too early, and grudgingly, Rachel.

Catspyjamas17 - 27 Jan 2021 22:19:07 (#14 of 112)

Just worked out that Rachel reminds me of someone I know, which is why I like her.

Glamorgan sausages are delicious and easy, we have them for Sunday lunch every now and then. I make them with the red onion relish Gareth made also. Perhaps he used the same recipe.

Looks good, thank you!

AdonisBlue - 27 Jan 2021 23:17:10 (#16 of 112)

Looks like they came up with the title by just throwing all the most popular TV show words in a bag and pulling them out. Celebrity tick, Cook tick, Home tick.

carterbrandon - 27 Jan 2021 23:42:58 (#17 of 112)

You forgot 'Great' and 'British'.

AdonisBlue - 28 Jan 2021 00:05:01 (#18 of 112)

Many channel 5 programs seem to now start with Secrets of...

Not sure why, it must be an effective click bait.

AdonisBlue - 28 Jan 2021 00:06:10 (#19 of 112)

Tonight I saw Secrets of Iceland and thought, oh a nice documentary on Iceland and it's vulcanism. But no, it was the Iceland the Supermarket which has no secrets of interest at all.

Catspyjamas17 - 28 Jan 2021 06:39:22 (#20 of 112)

#16 Yes, but the regular series is just called, a more restrained, "Best Home Cook". The "Great British" moniker did at least originate on the BBC but is owned by the production company afaik. Applying "Celebrity" to the name follows the pattern with Masterchef, Mastermind, Pointless and others.
