I watched the Eggs and Cheese episode of Raymond Blanc’s Kitchen Secrets last night. Most of the attraction lay in his exquisite French-accented English, how he doesn’t mind showing an absentminded side of his nature, and occasional mess-ups in the kitchen. But there were also hints of the authoritarian boss and poor Adam (sous chef?) was the receiving end of comments such as:
Adam, can you always make sure I always have someone in here?
Adam, are you sure you gave me the biggest whisk? … You don’t like me very much do you?
But it doesn’t seem too severe somehow in that French accent! Makes good watching on a lazy Monday night. Episodes are available on BBC iplayer and recipes are on bbc.co.uk/food.
