Master Chef Cliche Generator ...

For someone who has the occasional creative moment in the kitchen and quite an open minded foodie, it may surprise you to discover that I seldom watch 'chef' programmes.

Some are good, some I learn from, some are more entertainment than education, but some annoy me.

One that definitely annoys is the current incarnation of MasterChef, it's car crash tv that meets a fly on the wall cliche generator.

I do appreciate the challenge and talent of some of the competitors, but come on, can we avoid the formalistic approach to presentation. I now hate the word passionate with a passion (irony intended), I enjoy putting on a good meal, but I tend to be more passionate about other things (grown ups will understand).

Can the presenters avoid using a rostrum of phrases; say something different or even be um 'interesting' and show us some of their experience when judging the competitors.

We don't actually see how any of the dishes are created, instead seeing the idea, the eyebrows (raised singular or double) and a voice over that could be considered an incitement to riot.
