Product Description

Product Description

Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, Marco Pierre White, Heston Blumenthal...For too long our lives have been invaded by a chequered-panted bunch of soufflé botherers who seem only interested in one thing - money, and making lots more of it.

They have left behind their kitchens, flogging stock cubes, spectacles, and ‘soft-open’ kettles, putting their names to restaurants they never actually cook in, and spend more time preening around on TV sofas plugging their next book or ready meal range than preparing food.

Journalist Alex Watts takes you on an amusing journey of bile-dripping rants to ponder the question...Was Keith Floyd, the TV cook who unleashed this monster in whites on the world, joking when he said all celebrity chefs should be napalmed? Or should they just all be deported to Devil’s Island so we might have a chance of getting some decent food programmes back on the telly?

5.0 out of 5 stars Rants that uncover the cult of Celebrity Chefs 3 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Down and out in Padstow and London and the follow up Down and Out in South East Asia so this was a must when I heard of its release. I was not disappointed.

Taken from articles on the Chef Sandwich blog this book takes a hard, and insider's, look at the cult of celebrity chefs.

Well written it is incredibly funny but reveals all the foibles of our most viewed celebrity chefs, and takes a good swing at Critics and Bloggers en route.

Voilence, shoplifting, unhygienic habits and utter megalomania are all ingredients in this hot dish of a book.

You'll never look at Tv Chefs and presenters in the same way.

Five (Michelin) stars from me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Miaow! 18 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed Down and Out in Padstow and London but was disappointed with this book. He just whinges about the success of the celebrity chefs because they seem to cook less now that they are celebrities. They are obviously doing something right as, generally, they are popular, so what is your problem, Mr Watts?
