QUICK BITES

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Ian Cuth­bert­son

4 In­gre­di­ents, 7.30pm, Life­Style

Many cook­ing shows are fronted by ex­pert chefs who take a lot for granted in terms of the culi­nary ex­per­tise of the viewer.

Though at times pre­sen­ters Rachael Ber­ming­ham and Kim McCosker look and sound like Kath and Kim, be­neath the slightly brash ex­te­rior there’s a tonne of use­ful ad­vice for those who want to keep the flavours hot and the cook­ing sim­ple.

This time, for a change, the vil­lain is a woman, the mother of one of the teens. She has been sup­ply­ing al­co­hol and sleep­ing with one of the boys. Here’s to you, Mrs Robin­son.
