A friend just sent me a link to clips of this show on youtube. I greedily ate up all eight 10 minute episodes (if you have realplayer you can watch them off the BBC website). The wonderful British ability to laugh at their own stereotypes comes out in full force in these little vignettes of snobish cooking--where the vegetables are embarrassed, skinned fish is ready when it is thoroughly ashamed, a good Riesling should be enjoyed young (like a school boy), and the wine tastes like petrol--not the pathetic unleaded stuff, but good old-fashioned four star.
This is exactly the type of show that American Television sadly lacks. Something done for no other reason than that it is just so damn funny!
So grab your heirloom cooking utensils, grab your thesaurus, and prepare to laugh!moreless
