I liked Romney Marsh when he was at Man City.

Edit: New page, Egg.

If that woman mentions coming from Romney Marsh (which looks like a boring fucking field by the way) one more time I'll scream.

I imagine mostly everything she cooks day to day has sea buckthorn and samphire in it, with sea purslane as a garnish. So a combo of sour as fuck with bitter as fuck.

Actually, now that I've posted that, I've realised who she reminds me of - manerism wise, and it's been bugging me for a few weeks - it's Emma Kennedy.

"There's nowhere to hide with this dish" seems to be the catchphrase this year too, although I've not watched it for a few years so they might have been saying it for ages.

It’s been a bit if a staple alongside raised eyebrows if someone says they are “doing a soufflé“ for a while now, alongside little white jugs for the gravy

Also not seen it for years (surprised it's been so long). Does Monica still say "very delicious"? Always sounded wrong to me like "very unique" but don't think it is.

Fake Edit - that's the Pro one isn't it? I'm which case - I like when things go on fire and John Torode calmly, so calmly, shepherds the contestant to the side and puts the fire out. He seems like a nice man.

Tom being a "front of house manager" - didn't he let slip at one point that it was for "a popular chicken restaurant", ie Nando's?

Sadly not (why though? Is the bbc making me mourn?) same with great British menu it appears, again, live tv understandable to a point, iPlayer less so..

I thought it'd be Alexina almost by default as Mike is a bit too traditional and Tom putting Japanese flavours in absolutely everything was a bit one note, but I was wrong.

I liked the other lad but I find the whole 'nonna' phenomenon makes my balls schlunk back up into my gooch.

Agreed.  Playing up the whole Italian thing like an Italian equivalent of a Plastic Paddy (Plastic Luigi???).  After his tribute-to-Captain-Tom Sunday dinner in an earlier round he was dead to me.  Despite having nice teeth and looking like a gone-to-seed Tom Daley.

I liked Tom. Easily the least arrogant of the three.

Yeah, and least posh. The reveal of him working in Nando's massively changed my view of him. When I heard 'restaurant manager' I always feel like it's a cop out and they have already worked in some high end restaurant. But it's just a Newcastle Nandos and his dishes looked most appealing to me, the Oyster starter in particular. Alexina's ultra confidence from the start rubbed me up the wrong way, and other bloke's nonna shit and boring meat and 2 puree dishes was dull.

Were my ears deceiving me or did she say, "It's mine to lose"? Cambridge style arrogance there. Oh, she went to Cambridge!

Yeah, I'm sure there was a bit in the interview where I'm paraphrasing but she says something like 'I'm extremely confident of winning... well i might as well say it!' Then there was a long pause. I just thought, cunt.

Yep, which she followed up by saying "...that might sound cocky, but..." with the unspoken implication being "can you blame me?" Yuck.
Her 'fusion' food had the potentially fatal fault of not sounding particular appetising either. It's one thing on Masterchef where you've got a captive audience who have to eat it, and can then talk all about what a pleasant surprise it was that it worked when it didn't sound like it would, but that's not going to win over potential customers reading a menu.
