A couple of months ago i got hooked on a program called "Rosemary shreigersa school for cooks", a bit like the aprentice but for cooking!!
I found it compelling viewing, but everytime i cooked i found myself saying "that would never be aceptable presentation in a real kitchen! or that seasoning is just not subtle enough!!!!! DH has now banned me from watching anyting of the sort cos he said it made me grumpy in the kitchen!
I love cooking for freinds and family, love making my own cakes, jams and breads, but no mater how hard i try i cant make myself a foody! Anything too fancy or faffy i just cant be bothered!
So here it is, my list of 10 guilty kitchen secrets that mean i will never earn a michlin star!
I love cooking but would hate to be a chef!
I use jared garlic, its just too much hastle to chop as i have a rubish garlic crusher! Ditto jared chillis
My current set of knives are blunt and cost £1.50 from wilcos
The new knives i bought i got cos i liked the knife block!
I dont know how to sharpen a knife properly!

Well now you know, now ive eased my mind and "fessed" up. Im off to banish evil cooking shows from my mind and go back to just ENJOYING cooking again... no michlin stars for me.... so what!....... well at least until the next series starts...!
