Well done I thought !
Totally agree that TV cookery shows are mostly about entertaining these days. Often little to do with actually getting food on a plate !

Is it true that Delia is hanging up her wooden spoon and not doing any further TV programmes?

I for one am sorry that Delia will no longer be doing a cookery programme on TV. I really used to enjoy her programmes. I have the 4 DVD's produced by the Daily Mail which I look at from time to time. I hope Nigel Slater continues with his TV programmes. He's given me some good recipe ideas and I enjoy his style of cooking.

Can quite understand her point of view. Most cookery/cheffy programmes are strictly showbiz. Thank goodness we still have Nigel Slater and Simon Hopkinson and the like.

Nigel Slater

Is creepy. But I love his books.

cookery shows

Yes! I know just what you mean - I have difficulty watching his shows for that reason. And there was another bloke that was on tv the other night - name escapes me - sounded just like him, cooked like him, also faintly irritating & a bit weird too - was some kind of ex food writer or some such. Pompous.

Give me Delia or Mary Berry any day. Speaking of which, I loved her biographical tv prog. Really interesting to see how she shaped her career. Inspirational in some respects and heartwarming. Nice lady.

Proper Cookery Programmes

I love Nigel Slater's programmes and his style of cooking. Really enjoyed the Mary Berry programme in the week, too.

TV cooks

I really like Nigel Slater's books and recipes but I am afraid I don't like watching him on TV. I don't think he is a 'natural' on the box, in fact I think I've read that he resisted for a long time before doing any series.

TV Cookery Programmes

I saw a Simon Hopkinson programme earlier today and thought how good it was - straightforward cookery with no frills - just good common sense. It would be a shame if Delia disappeared from our screens entirely - although why should she continue to work in her well deserved "retirement" ! Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall is another favourite of mine - although he does bang on a bit - but very good causes though.
