Manu Feildel cuts a less con­tro­ver­sial fig­ure than his coun­ter­part on My Kitchen Rules New Zealand.

French chef Feildel, 44, has re­united with Pete Evans, the Aussie foodie and pa­leo pros­e­ly­tiser to judge this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, in which six duos from across the coun­try have dreamed up dishes to impress some of tele­vi­sion’s more for­mi­da­ble culi­nary crit­ics. Over the years, Evans has courted head­lines with his un­sci­en­tific views on ev­ery­thing from sun­screen and water flu­o­ri­da­tion (anti), to bone broth for ba­bies and onion poul­tices (pro). By con­trast, Feildel, who got mar­ried to his long-term partner this year, has re­mained cu­ri­ously vanilla. Ahead of MKR re­turn­ing to Kiwi screens, about the most scan­dalous thing we got Feildel – a former cir­cus per­former – to re­veal was his pref­er­ence for mar­ti­nis over mo­ji­tos. Here’s the rest of his Sun­day Grill.
