All Hail The King!..The Kitchen King!

Harry: I’m actually still not sure how or why me and Brad won that. I did taste the other guys’ food, which was incredibly gingery so maybe that’s what worked against them?

Brad: I think it was that and the fact that we were just better. Look at the presentation on our plate, it’s unBOWLieveable! There is an argument to say we should maybe being disqualified for dangerous cooking….?

Harry: The microwave. That was a big ooopps but it doesn’t matter no harm done.

Brad: The whole thing was a great laugh overall. Think it goes to show like cooking doesn’t need to be a chore  – you can have fun with your mates while you’re cooking. Fair enough we’re not going to get a film crew and a crowd every time but still.

Harry: yeah you’re right. It did bring a lot of us together and that’s something that’s carried on since. Not a competitive edge to it, more just communal cooking really. Keeping each other company and share food and ideas and stuff. It’s good!
