He's a nasty piece of burnt toffee
f I were one of the contestants I too would tell him to sling his hook. Interesting though, the way he plays the contestants like fish on the end of his hook. Pulling them up, then smashing them back down, over and over. He has real psychological issues with power, control, domination and manipulation. A dangerously nasty streak flashes out of him at intervals. Not someone who's qualified to teach or mentor. Unlike others here, I have come to really like Gizzi, despite my initial irritation. I can now see her sincerity and warm, loving personality shining through. She might be inconsistent at times in speech but she's true-blue, straight as a die psychologically, sees the best in people, and is an extremely positive and supportive person ..... unlike the ego-driven male chef. Beehive hair-dos and retro clothes simply don't matter in the greater scheme of things. What does matter is how people treat each other. And in this respect, the male let's the show and the contestants down. His nasty insults are actually an assault - albeit verbal - but little different than a punch in the guts.

Recipes From Show
I watched episode 37 today and liked the recipe for the fishcakes with parsnips. Can I find the recipe for it on the site for the show or Channel 4. Not on your life. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Its all gone wrong for her! :(
Lily Allen was at the top of her game with her music and now she's stuck presenting cookery programs. Its very hard to watch to be honest.

maybe your winner today is a fine cook-but- I could never bring myself to eat his food or declare him a winner with him running his hand accross his nose all the time. I think judges should note this as a very disgusting habit- and realy puts one off there food.

Corrigan is an Idiotic, Unpleasant Fake
Richard Corrigan appears to have practised the art of looking like he knows what he's talking about when in fact he doesn't. Every word he utters annoys the hell out of me and I don't say that about many people. I'd love to see a program where he has to cook a variety of basic dishes for the public and see how he gets on (and yes I know he won the Fish course in Great British Menu but theres an exception to every rule and all credit to his extensive acting ability which is hard to fault)

Finally some entertainment!!!
I think cookery school is great, fab recipes that we are shown how to master. Yeah Richard might be a bit harsh sometimes but he gets the results he wants from the students in the end & when they do well he does praise!...reminds me of Gordon Ramsay a bit but without the swearing! I could take or leave Gizzi but it's nice to have something to learn from with a bit of entertainment too - if you don't like it don't watch it!

I think that Richard Corrigan is abusive at times and often unnecessarily rude. Gizzi seems to be ruled by the moon. One minute she is telling a student that to do something is ok and the next she is criticising them for doing it.

This could be the worst Cookery based TV Show on the Air! Great Kitchen, Great Contestants. However, The Idiotic, Rude, Unbearable Chef/Host ruins the show. Gizi is lacking Charisma and Personality, Replace them!
