    Cool beans chaps - breakfast in the woods is about the bacon, plenty of streaky, a good splash of olive oil and cook fast, just get it crispy around the edges, plenty of freshly cracked black pepper, push to one side of the pan and softly scramble the eggs, season and serve on to freshly baked bread and devour...

    What do we have to do for a Shokugeki No Soma: Food Wars battle? Each normal/Chef makes a dish for the show and they see who did it better. I think Jamie would love the Caveman Meat. or Ben and James could do the Oxtail Stew Special and Saiba's Special Ramen.

    Jamie seems like more of a line cook than a chef tbh. A very well versed and experienced line cook, but I've worked with both in restaurants for years and his knowledge and method of cooking is more in line with a good line cook than an actually chef... And would lose a steak battle? Really? Cooking protein is the first thing a real chef learns. The fact he went to steak school and still lost.... He's a line cook.

    I really enjoyed this video! I’d love to see more challenges like this one. Maybe have one chef and two normals trying to make the same high-end dish, with the normals given the best ingredients and the chef being given a more budget friendly version, and see how close the chef can get by using lots of little tips and tricks? I’m thinking something as simple as recreating Joel Robuchon’s Pommes Purée, with the normals having the correct La Ratte potatoes and high end butter, with the chef getting a similar style of potato and higher end supermarket butter maybe? And serving it with steak, again with the normals having a really great cut from a butcher, and the chef having a higher end supermarket cut - how close can these flavours and ideas be replicated on a budget? Given the times and climate were in, I think the tips and tricks to enhance your meals and replicate what you can get with more expensive ingredients would be amazing! Keep up the good work guys

    Your discussion about your lives made me think . You boys will be something else in about 15 or 20 years . Right now you guys are like cute puppies romping around . I wish that I could live long enough to see you when you had ripened some . I'm thinking cute will have turned into dead sexy . But that is for the younger generations to enjoy . I will continue to enjoy you as you are .

    There are some places in America that look amazing and individual Americans seem really nice and friendly and the food sounds amazing but I'm kind of scared to go... I'm disabled, gay (the uk government says parts of America may not be safe to visit for LGBT people), and have seen like two guns in my life and would probably freak out if I saw a random person walking round with a massive one. Is there anywhere anyone can recommend I go (in a couple of years when covid is over and I've saved enough money) where I'll get to experience the great food and people and amazing nature (your national parks have been something I've wanted to see all my life) but feel safe and like I don't have hide my sexuality?

    Mustard and brown sugar are fairly common ingredients in baked beans here in the States. Though you don't see them served for breakfast here. Usually it's more of a thing for a backyard barbecue or camping. As for my fry-ups, I like to do French toast, steak fries, ham steak, and some apple slices sauteed with a little brown sugar and cinnamon. And if I'm feeling really industrious, hoetteok, which a yeasted, filled, pan-fried Korean doughnut (my personal favorite filling is homemade apple caramel, ask me for the recipe if you like).

    This reminds me of weekends with my grandma. Also in regards to trespassing in the UK we have something called a right to roam so so long as it's not active farmland (don't trample people's crops), someone's garden, or a military base you're good even if it's private land (just don't destroy anything).

    My grandma didn't have much money when my mum and uncle were kids (alcoholic husband + not well off anyway) so what she did was every payday buy a big bag of potatoes and then even if the money did run out they would never go hungry, there are so many different things you can do with potatoes, they keep for a really long time, are really cheap, and are really filling and a good bulking agent for soups and stews if you only have a small amount of meat or the like.

    new challenge series for you.. BID war! remember the old series "name that tune!"? same idea, but for the amount they get to spend give them a dish, and a starting point to make the dish....and then each bids it down further until someone says they can't do it for that.... once they've reached their low bid.. they have to prove it...(or fail it) and have to stay under budget for their dish..... lots of possible variations on it....teams, 3-way, chef vs chef, chef vs norm...any of which would be interesting... What do you think?

    James made a ridiculously stupid move. I fully understand the sentiment of using expensive, delicious ingredients within a budget but no one on God's green earth who is on a budget would invest in something as frivolous as quails' eggs. Chorizo, premium mushrooms, nuts and steak I fully understand because they can add a lot of flavor or stand on their own and be nicely complimented with an inexpensive side dish but fucking quails' eggs? That's a huge no.
