She's saying "EVOO," stupid-person shorthand for "extra virgin olive oil." She shills Dunkin' Donuts which is like, totally ridiculous. I know her big thing is 'ease' and people eat frozen veggies and I don't have a problem with that, but as the most visible, powerful TV cook in a country with hilariously disordered eating, I think it's kind of crass she whores out fucking donuts.

Marco Pierre White used to be sexy. FYI.

Oh right! Thanks! I figured it was something fairly obvious and oil-related... Did you see the scarf controversy in her Dunkin Donuts ads? It seems a bit weird for her to promote them, really. Although I do love a dunkin' donut myself, I know they're not exactly a sign of healthy eating.

I've just checked and I'm *fairly* sure it wasn't all a strange dream.
He was on Morecambe Bay for a bit in that episode, patronising the cockle pickers. That raw meat was Bambi tartare.

aw man, i've just missed most of celebrity master chef. i thought i had it skyplussed. damn. does it repeat?

annie, it wasn't so much that he was eating the quails eggs or sniffing the fruit, it was the WAY he was doing it. the look on his smug face!
