Torode: I got into cooking trouble with ‘chef’s arse’
MASTERCHEF judge John Torode has admitted suffering from a painful condition called ‘CHEF’S ARSE’.
The 51-year-old (above), who has been dating TV star and former Celebrity Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner since 2012, confessed that he had suffered from ‘chef’s arse’, which happens in HOT kitchens.
He said: “It depends on how hot it is in the kitchen – but yes, you get chef’s arse.
“It happens when you get really hot and the sweat drips down your back and the only place it can go to is the crack in your bum.
“And then what happens is, because it’s warm there, the sweat dries and becomes salty and then it chafes together... and then you get chef’s arse.”
But the Masterchef host revealed there is a cure for the condition.
He added: “There used to be all sorts of remedies, like rub cornflour on it.
“Talk to any chef and they’ll say, ‘Yeah, I’ve had chef’s arse’. It’s a rite of passage.”
