Ok, so the challenge appeared to be rather simple, and as always the wannabes (it would be an injustice to real chefs to call them anything else) instantly mouthed that it was o-so-easy!! Haven't these guys learned anything yet - its easy to chop a chick for the family,and even the best can make the occasional bodge of a cut, but its not so easy to get perfect cuts to pass for a Michelin starred chef.We knew it was coming - most were passed with pride but one made a complete pigs ear of it - most microwave-chefs could match 2/8 simply pulling the wings off.
So the girlies lived it up, or at least got someone else to cook their lunch, while the guys sweated it out picking peppers.
And would you believe it seems that nothing was learned by either side as both again produced a miserable dinner service. Remember, one of these guys/gals is up for a 1/4million job soon so i would have hoped to see at least a bit of nosh hit the table rather than dying on the hot plate. 3 days in and fail,fail,fail. I see Gordon even more stressed this week!
The worst thing so far tho, it seems the men still cant get over the male vs female split that is currently in place. As a man with a number of years of kitchen time I find it embarrasing that the old cliches are out and about in the mens camp. They are simply embarrasing themselves considering they are not exactly running 100% themselves. Do they forget that the whole world can see their sexist behaviour - god help them if they have strong wives awaiting them at home when they are evicted cos its going way beyond banter in my book.
I await the next instalment simply to see grown men (& women) cry as they demonstrate that their 'God given talent' is more of a curse!!!!!!!
