Storyline

Each week host chef James Martin and his two invited TV chef colleagues each cook meals for the celebrity guest and the two winners of the weekly competition. Regular features include archive footage from various other TV chef shows and the omelette challenge, where the two invited chefs must cook an omelette as fast as possible. Finally, there is the Heaven and Hell test which requires the celebrity guest to name their most and least favourite foods. Viewers then vote for one of these foods and at the end of the show, James Martin, cooks a meal for the celebrity using the winning food item! Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

Martin has improved

Now, I have to say that I didn't watch the old episodes with AWT but did see James Martin's first episode and probably two thirds of the ones since. His delivery has improved immensely and the programme is incredibly enjoyable. I have also watched AWT on his ITV show and find James to now be the better presenter.

James also has a better reputation among the top chefs than AWT (Michael Winner said that AWT cooked the worst meal Winner had ever had at a restaurant) and is a better chef.

The omelette challenge is superb (remember one of the Roux brothers, I can't remember which, taking 2 minutes to make his omelette and topping it with caviar!) and the addition of clips from Floyd Stein, the two fat ladies et al makes it a great show.

The ingredients can be expensive, but if you want cheap decent fare then watch Simon Rimmer on Something for the Weekend.
