Just because I host Masterchef doesn’t mean that I am a food snob...
Aside from Masterchef – what’s the best meal you’ve ever had and where was it?
My grandmother’s roast lamb was my all time favourite meal and I know that my little brother would say the exact same thing. Her roast potatoes were so crispy that the outside would almost come off. She used to have mint growing in a disused sink and as a child I would make the mint sauce for her.
Hosting Masterchef means you must be used to fine dining, would you class yourself as a bit of a food snob?
I’m most certainly not a food snob in any shape or form! I would probably say I’m anything but a food snob. In all honestly I really like a Big Mac from Mcdonald’s, I also love a good Chinese takeaway and I regularly eat in Harvester. I also like to dip fish fingers in ketchup.
So you don’t mind eating at high street food chains, what’s favourite?
I have a few favourite chain restaurants actually. But, I particularly like Harvester a lot because you can park literally outside the door. Plus, they roast whole chickens and they have a salad bar so there are lots of healthy options too. The bigger Tesco stores have started serving a carvery and I can honestly say that it’s delicious.
