Mrs FB captured the remote to the TV last night and I was surprisingly amused to see the episode of Celeb Master Chef that was held at a Cadet Training Centre that I know quite well. anyone else see the episode? My amusement came not from the antics of the cadets or contestants (the cadets seemed to fair very well in the portrayal ) My amusement was that Master Chef should be held at this site at all, a notorious location and scene of many a heinous "Light Lunch" and "continental breakfast" A site where the chip fat in the deep pan fryer had been left on occasion so long a whole ecosystem had grown up around the scum floating on top Also a site where the kitchen equipment would include a chisel, needed to pry the cups and saucers off their grease embossed location in the cupboards A place where humans felt as interlopers, to the usual multi-legged inhabitants of the festering kitchens (and i don't just mean the slop jockeys). But there was something sadly missing from this TV experience and it was not the usual Spanish inquisition, complete with torture, to discover the guilty cadet who had emptied non food waste in the slop bucket (hence depriving the poor "underpaid" cook staff of another means of profit) It was also not the missing usual motto of " if its smoking its cooking, if its burnt its ready" No it was the absence of the scaly-back perm staff, (estate car rear axle scraping the road under the load of " unused so a shame to waste it" rations) exiting the location early after feeding the starving and paying cadets on cold ham, rock hard bread rolls and runny fried eggs. Oh the irony.
