I am sitting on the sofa with my nasty friend Gordon Gout and we are watching "Saturday Morning Kitchen" with the Yorkshire chef/presenter James Martin. In this programme, there's always a celebrity guest - such as an actor, comedian or well-known writer. He or she gets to sample the various dishes that are prepared in the studio kitchen.
Early in the programme, the guest is asked to name his or her favourite food item and also their least favourite - "Food Heaven and Food Hell". Viewers and celebrity chefs get to vote on which of these will be used in the preparation of the last dish of the show - for the guest to sample.
So I was thinking - if I was the celebrity guest on "Saturday Morning Kitchen" - what would be my "Food Heaven and Food Hell"? What would be yours?
For "Food Heaven" I would be spoilt for nominations. There are so many food items I love - from the humble potato to mussels prised from seaside rocks and from spring lamb to brussel sprouts. My list would be almost endless. But with regard to "Food Hell", I am really scratching my head to come up with anything at all.
However, I know that if I was on the show and said that I didn't have a "food hell", James Martin would probably chuck a chopping board at my head so, playing the game, here are my choices-
FOOD HEAVEN Fillet steak
FOOD HELL Pears
Now over to you dear visitor. If you were the guest on "Saturday Morning Kitchen" what would your "heaven" and "hell" ingredients be?
