Episode One: Not Even Appetising
“For my first dish, I’ve melted Wyke Farms’ Cheddar, then I fried Daylesford farm organic bacon until it was cooked through but not crispy. I created a ‘mug’ with the bacon strips and filled it with the melted cheese.”
Gregg: “This is not worthy of a Masterchef – it’s basically just bacon wrapped round cheese.”
John: “Excellent technique. But I have to agree, I just want to take a running jump away from it.”
Episode Two: Whose Sick Idea Was This?
“For my main course, I’ve made a plain pizza with tomato sauce and mozzarella, and added peeps.”
Episode Three: Really, Why Bother?
“For dessert, I blended a soft vanilla ice-cream with rainbow sprinkles, and sandwiched each scoop between slices of strawberry milkshake poptart.”
Gregg: “It’s summery, it’s fruity … I’d stick my face in it.”
John: “This is the bland leading the bland.”
Episode Four: Who Would Think This Was A Good Idea?
“Well, it’s pulled pork. And mashed potato. Served together, in a glass, so it looks like a parfait.”
John: “… nicely seasoned …”
Gregg: “Now I’m not going to criticise until I actually stick it in my mouth.”
Episode Five: I Want To Give You Nightmares
“…look, there are even little candles stuck into the eyeballs!”
Gregg: “That is just gooey loveliness!”
John: “It’s an abomination.”
Episode Six: Let’s Just Get A Take-Away, Guys?
“Let’s be honest. You come home, you’re tired, you don’t want to spend three hours cooking a complicated meal with twenty ingredients, plated up to look like it’s something else. So for you, it’s a 100-by-100 In-and-Out Burger.”
John: “It shouldn’t work … but it does.”
Gregg: “God, you’ve got some big flavours, boy!”
