For the past few years I have been shaking my head at the MasterChef Juggernaught. I just did not understand what the fuss was about. You would enter into any number of conversations at socail events and all anyone would be talking about was Master-Fricking-Chef. Or a new spatula they had bought. Or how their pastry had turned out. Or how tediously boring they had become since they had started watching Masterchef.

I have watched it a couple of times in the last week and I can feel myself being pulled in. There is something addictive about it. And I have put in down to the food.

Since then, I have made some dishes I may have not have done before.
