I wanted to love it
but I didn't. It made me cringe.
You will remember we all got excited when the book came out.I love Sophie Dahl, I think she is exquisitely beautiful, and would sell The Hound to the highest bidder to have her cheekbones.
But why did she listen when someone said, Let's make a TV show?
The food was good if unoriginal, but it just all felt a bit forced. From the perfectly twee kitchen to the literary quotes, Dorothy Parker anecdotes and the fish facts??
It was so contrived, the Cath Kidston of the cookery world, and her forehead didn't move.
Perhaps I am just bored of the format, Nigella, Nigel, Jamie, Delia, what we all really need is a new Fanny Craddock. The Hound thinks he would be better as the Galloping Gourmet. Either way we are pitching it Channel 4 in the morning. There just aren't enough dogs cooking on television.
Perhaps next weeks will be better? Please let it be.
