I thought it was all right although it would have saved a lot of confusion if, at the beginning, they'd explained it was a comic remake of Blankety-Blank. One reason the second episode seemed better...

The French pretty much invented fine dining (Careme, Escoffier and so on) so most of the classics are French.

In the particular cases of Rani and Deirdre, I'm not sure they were particularly good....

Dierdre, like Rani earlier, seemed to be a one-trick pony with the added disadvantage that anyone cooking Thai food has to satisfy John Torode's own interpretation of that cuisine. I do wonder if...

I'm not sure this was the weakest heat we've seen, and though this might be a minority view, I thought some can count themselves a tad unlucky. Ed's nerves clearly got the better of him and the...

Toad is a play on Torode, and Shrek is the other one. Some call them Frog and Toad for similar reasons.

To clarify -- I mean Monica's fee compared with her day job as chief assistant pot rattler (senior sous chef) at Le Gavroche, not to imply the BBC pays her more than her co-presenters.

I'd like to see Monica stay. We should also remember that for Monica, the tv fees are probably a more significant lump of cash than for some of the others.
