I’m not being rude; I’m genuinely interested.
I don’t rate myself above a reasonably competent home cook, yet if I counted what I’d actually learned from all the ‘celebrity chef’ demonstrations I’ve seen over the years, it’s not much for a hell of a lot of watching.
So, because I would never have a) time to emulate their creations b) the will c) the wallet d)the staff to clean up afterwards, and e) because of the above probably won’t buy their cook book and thus don’t want to line up to have it signed, I don’t see much point.
I’m obviously not the typical ticket buyer then, but who is? Do you go to celeb chef cooking demos? Do you learn anything and if so, what do you do with the knowledge? Who’s the best high profile chef you’ve seen do this kind of show? Responses much appreciated.
