Did any of you watch it over the last couple of nights? Absolutely brilliant.

Personally I struggle to boil an egg, so to see three amateures producing food to the standard of three Michelin stars is unbelievable. I wish I could afford to eat such cuisine even if only occasionally.

Really felt for the two losing finalists, but I'm sure if they want to have a career change they've given themselves a great platform from which to do it.

Well done to them all.

    I know what you mean, at that level the whole thing becomes a genuine art form rather than just cooking. The guy who won has doubtless got a bit of bright future ahead of him me thinks.

    I thought before the last show that it was defo Dhruv's but the standard was so high it was difficult to tell!

    The fact that they were able to produce 3 star food was mind blowing.

    Really enjoyed it, so much better than it used to be years ago.

    MASTERCHEF UPGRADED TO CLASS B DRUG

    THE tedious but powerfully addictive BBC cooking series Masterchef is to be upgraded to a class B controlled substance, it emerged last night.

    The move comes after a Swindon man chewed the flesh from his hands after his television broke just as judges Greg Wallace and John Torode were about to announce that week's quarter-finalist.

    Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: "Masterchef is ostensibly just another reality cooking format where some people you'll never meet get very stressed while heating some things for the fleeting gratification of a couple of bastards.

    "But just try not watching it, or worse still turning it off before the end. You'll see Gregg Wallace's big testicle-like head, goading you about your inability to deliver strong flavours.

    "The hallucinations will escalate, usually culminating in a vision of Gregg and John writhing naked together in a massive sex ramekin full of evil black souffle. And the only way to make to stop is to watch more Masterchef."

    He added: "I've seen children as young as six who've watched the show and are more concerned about how a mother-of-two's seemingly ill-advised fish and rabbit lasagne with a lime jus will pan out than playing with their friends. It really is appalling."

    Masterchef addict Nikki Hollis said: "When I first started watching it I thought it was harmless drivel and I openly mocked former greengrocer Greg, who appeared to have little to offer except the fact that he really, really likes puddings.

    "'But as soon as it was over, I wanted another one, and other. Which was just as well because it's on all the fing time."

    Recovering Masterchef user Roy Hobbs said: "It hasn't been easy but I'm through the dark times. However, I do occasionally still imagine what it would be like to kiss John Torode while Gregg Wallace looks on, lasciviously rubbing his gleaming pate and repeating the word 'laaaarvely'."

    I stand corrected.
  • I thought doctor Tim was going to cry and require putting on suicide watch. He seemed always so tense.

    The beardy wierd looking one AKA Alex will continue to cook as he is a food writer so I don't think the opportunity suited him that much,although he was willing to take a gamble I don't think he had the same level of skill at putting together flavours as Dhruv.

    The food looked amazing but I don't think I could afford to eat any of it post ride, not unless there was a 10 for the price of 1. I guess the point is quality and flavour not cyclist satisfying size. Just finished renovating the kitchen and it has really got my interest levels back into cooking.

  • Did they have to do the feed the army task again?

    Being an ex Army Chef I used to love that bit. Cooking like that is so much more difficult than people imagine. It's bloody hard work being an army chef!

    These three wanna be chefs are about to face the toughest challenge of their lives!

    It barely makes sense.


    Thoroughly irritating.

    The food looks nice, admittedly, but I much preferred 'The Delicious Lady Dahl' on the telly the other night.
    Proper food, served in a portion size that would fill you up, not leaving you to stop off at the chippy on the way home from the swanky restaurant!

    The music was good, too.
    Shame she seemed to refer to New York so often...

    She's not Nigella though!!

    I love masterchef but more to see the complete incompetents in the early rounds be made to look stupid, can't beat a bit of random humiliation. They are artists and if you're ever lucky enough to eat in a "Starred" restaurant you can see and taste the difference from the local trattoria or bistro. Best guy won, the beardy wierdy should have been bumped just for the shameful facial hair and the Doc...odd bloke that one bit like a dark haired honey monster, brilliant cook though.
