Who wants to be a celebrity chef?

By stereo henry - 11 June 2008 21

666 ABC Canberra is currently running a competition where they are looking for winter recipes.

Each week they are going to invite a chef to discuss their recipe on air and one, the one they deem to be the best at the end of the comp, will be recorded for broadcast on the ABC.

What’s Your opinion?

Campbells Tomato Soup. Throw a pot on the stove. Mix in half a can of water, half a can of milk. Mix until creamy. Hey presto!

you can buy vegie roasts at Coles. They come in a green box and look like a short fat sausage. They are delicious!

And you may be able to use it for an apricot chicken..

A couple of nights ago she looked genuinely shocked!

Ponkygirl: I dunno, I’ve seen her pretty much lost for words after he has done his segment a couple of times in the last two weeks!

At least Virginia seems to be warming to him now … she treats him more as a favourite jack russell and less like a little puppy that’s just crapped on the carpet.

Oh, and if anyone can think of a vego version of apricot chicken, please do tell! I miss apricot chicken since I stopped eating meat.

Mark Carmody is definitely getting better at the TV weather gig. Very different skillset to doing talkback radio, but I think he’s getting it now.

Carmody loves the garden, give him a break. I am firmly in the Mark Carmody fan club. Good to have you back, Mark, you bring a great energy and appreciation to the weather and the way it shapes the biota. *thumbs up*

I have a great coq au vin recipe…

I don’t listen to ABC Talk Radio but I quite like their website, they solicit photoes from locals of interesting things, and try to be actually local. And someone’s criticising people sharing recipes, and then praising prank calls? Oh dear.

I’m expecting Mark Carmody to wear a large tree branch at some point soon. Tonight he was not wearing proper flowers and he’s done this a few times.

I quite like the ABC AM recipes. I often Google recipes and end up with an ABC AM page. The ingredients used are easily available, and they’re easy to cook. Probably because real people (as opposed to celebrity chefs from the UK) have done them.

666 have a regular Friday arvo segment where they get a f&v market update and do a recipe. During the drive home – better than listening to ads or loud music when I’m in peak hour traffic.

Didn’t they also have an associated segment on Stateline a while back, where everyone seemed to be whitebread Aryan parents, living in perfect five-bedroom homes?

If this is the demographic the ABC is carving out, I weep for their future marketshare.

I had the wierd feeling ant may be Mark Carmody also…

This sounds like a job for ant, oops, I mean, Mark Carmody.

“Why does it seem that the ABC are resorting to tacky things like this”

tacking things like asking people to share their stories and family recipes?

or tacking things like making prank phone calls?

I think talking about food is much more interesting than pretending to be someone from the bank, telling you that your credit cards reached it’s limit, just for kicks…

The ABC am situation probably can be explained by the fact that a majority of their listeners are zimmer frame driving, adult nappy wearing wet towels. Winter recipies keep ’em off the sreet.

As for prank calls on the radio. Thats kinda like asking a bunch of rugby players to sing.

Why does it seem that the ABC are resorting to tacky things like this, where they should just stick to what they do best. It’s like they are trying to do what the commercial stations are doing. Almost makes me switch off.
Speaking of commercial stations, I happened to switch across to 106 this morning and it seems they are doing prank calls. I must admit, never been a big fan of stuff like that, but I did find myself laughing. Not sure how long they have been doing these, but worth a listen if you get a chance. I think it was about 7:45 when i was driving to work.
