I admit, I needed some kind of kick up the backside to get blogging again. That kick has come in the delightfully shaped boot of the new series of Masterchef. It feels like only yesterday that Scott won my affections but, sadly, not the Professionals title and it was just a few weeks ago, surely, that the amazing Natalie took the amateurs trophy. During that time I have put the keyboard down and picked up the numerous cookbooks that adorn our shelves. Well, who knew cooking could be so much fun?
With yet more tweaking the series has been a joy thus far. No ‘mystery box’ to start, we have a ‘calling card’ round where contestants cook what is essentially their signature dish. If Luke’s future lies in the culinary world he will be forever remembered for his vegetable samosas. Has there been a more successful opening dish in the history of Masterchef? Anyway, whilst I wanted this post to contain nothing but 250 point type exclaiming ‘LUKE MUST WIN, WE LOVE HIM’, I shall discuss the utter gloriousness of the Luke The Robot Dude later.
