    @Mark McGuire call them home cooks so they weren't professionally trained but they are still good

    to keep it relevant as well as helping out people who need it, how about doing a video on cooking during the current panic buying. cooking a meal with whatever is left on the shelves of the local supermarket. my local supermarket has no eggs, pasta, rice, tomatoes(they are out of both fresh and tinned), no baked beans and the meat section only had smoked mackeral and a few ready meals left. i couldn't even put together a proper meal tonight due to an inability to come up a way of putting things together. i watched this video while eating a plate of lettuce, peas and white bread with mackeral, does that even qualify as a meal?

    Its unfortunate that in your hundreds of videos you have only given a negative review to a few dozen dishes. I appreciate your "positivity", but think your dishonesty outweighs it. I dont actually know if this was good since none of you ever really admit when you hate or dislike something. No way you are all "wow thats good" on every dish.

    "Every learning experience is fun Michael"... I can't decide whether it's the same vibe as parents using their child's full name in serious situations, or Mary Poppins going "Close your mouth please, Michael, we are not a codfish"

    I was SUPER impresses to see how labour intensive these "fancy" dishes are. Like you said, it gives you an appreciation as to why it costs so much / takes training etc to get it perfect. Had the wonderful experience of seeing how some higher end tapas were made in Barcelona & it absolutely made me appreciate how much work goes into everything :) Would love to see more of these :D

    I like seeing Ben cook with the others. He always tries to be positive and helpful teaching the others and judging their food. Even when he's doing a chef vs chef, he has no problem losing and congratulating to the winner. All this even when they tease him. I'd love to have a teacher like him when I decide to go to school! Love all guys and love the show!
