My latest foodie indulgence is the show Good Chef / Bad Chef on the Lifestyle Food Channel of Foxtel. My first thought was “why put someone on TV who can’t cook?” (I joke), then I very quickly noticed who one of the chef’s was and instantly realised that “bad” means, “cooking with way too much processed food and fat and sugar!”.
Enter one of my favourite celeb chef’s, Masterchef’s Gary Mehigan. He’s cuddly, charming and knows a hell of a lot about cooking. His partner in crime isa slightly over the top “healthy” foodie called Janella Purcell.
The premise of the show is simple, Gary cooks a meal you’ll salivate over, Janella makes a version that won’t kill you. Gary does compliment Janella’s cooking quite a lot. Janella, on the other hand, spends a fair bit of the show banging her head up against a brick wall because she can’t convert Gary.
Overall, it’s very entertaining & light hearted, a show that gives you tips on how to indulge AND look after yourself. What a fabulous idea. Start sniffing through the recipe archives for something yummy, or not ……
