... I see from LML's sig.

WTF did that happen?

Without criticizing HB's ability as a cook, shouldn't it require more of a body of work before you get this sort of honour?

It was announced in January, I think.

When working with high heat, the first contact between the cooking surface and the food must be respected.

Heston mows down a few dozen diners and staff at his new restaurant.

 

He said he aimed to amaze guests with "taste sensations beyond their imagination" rather than exposing them to a "really nasty couple of days of heaving".

i think it's impressive that he's so loyal to norovirus. loyalty is the mark of an honorary british knight, is it not?


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
