    Anyone else see last night's Masterchef,the pro's?...One of the contestants,Shaun (40-Aldershot), says he's "a very well respected chef in the army" seems confident..
    Stilton tart with glazed apples & head chef Monica is well impressed with his cooking.Fat boy Greg liked it as well..
    Good luck to him,he's certainly dressed smarter than the rest...
  2. Good effort indeed .....

    Obviously went to a different cooking school other than the Army School of Scran Assasins though?

  3. Its probably the 1st compliments he's had in 22 years!
  4. The UK army actually call their fitter and turners "chefs"? Gordon Ramsay is a chef, army cooks are handy sources of salmonela.
  5. Did he rap Fat Boy Greg over the knuckles with a ladle & shout, "OI, CUNT, ONE FUCKING APPLE"?

  6. But they don't normally say, "Here's £2.50 per head and you must include chips" in the Masterchef instructions, do they? Service chefs, given money (mess dinners, balls) and a decent amount of time have pretty much always been able to do a very good job.

  10. Really?? Is there such a thing? Is saying 'well respected chef' not like saying 'warry clerk' or 'tall pilot' or 'slim stacker'?

    Did he not make it hours before service then dry it out under some lights?

    The Corps will be distancing themselves from him for that basic error.

  13. I must admit that when I joined up in 1990 (I know, sprog) I very rarely had a duff meal. Even when crew cooking with 4-man packs we'd eat well as long as the Operator knew his onions.

    It was only when contractorisation came in with a vengeance that to food went rotten.
