Pre­ston’s muf­fin melt­down

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

NO MasterChef con­tes­tant should ever serve a muf­fin to judge Matt Pre­ston be­cause he RE­ALLY hates them. The food critic has such dis­dain for the muf­fin that he tears one apart on the new SBS se­ries Room 101, and tells host Paul McDer­mott there is noth­ing good about them. Noth­ing at all.

McDer­mott says it’s hard to un­der­stand how a food critic and judge of a re­al­ity cook­ing show can have such con­tempt for one of the most en­joy­able morn­ing snacks.

“His gripe is muffins are just stodge,” McDer­mott told AAP.

“We tried to ar­gue that they were a won­der­ful break­fast for peo­ple on the run and he got quite an­gry and tore apart a muf­fin with his bare hands.

“It was just to prove there was no ap­ple and very lit­tle cin­na­mon, so he had a point to make about Aus­tralia’s muf­fin-mak­ing skills.” Pre­ston is one of 10 prom­i­nent Aus­tralians McDer­mott in­vites on the show to dis­cuss their pet peeves.

In the first episode, vet­eran jour­nal­ist Ray Martin lets loose about park­ing in­spec­tors. • Room 101 pre­mieres on Satur­day, July 11, at 8.30pm on SBS ONE.
