I saw that prog before, or something very similar, showing how they discreetly or overtly encourage diners to the more profitable dishes, which sounds like easy money. Certainly amazingly precision slick in all aspects with very capable managers.

What was inescapable though (a different programme maybe) is how enormous the monetary losses from wastage and unrelenting overheads are if such a large canteen-style restaurant is not virtually full most nights (not to mention the wrongness of food waste itself), so maybe easy money it isn't despite huge investment.

They might fare better, if still going, than smaller "closeted" eateries in post-Covid 19 new normal of social distancing where space alone might encourage more customers than elsewhere does.

Watford Global Buffet

Postby Sakkarin » Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:14 am

I am sorry to confess that I never went there, although I'm afraid all that sweaty rushing-aboutishness of a buffet doesn't suit me anyway really.

I wonder if it will ever reopen; if all the "chefs" have disappeared back to wherever they came from, or are still in furlough round Watford, soon to be evicted when their money runs out. I don't see how any food establishment is ever going to get going again if the amount of customers they can service is a quarter of what it should be - I thought that most of these places run on close to breakeven costings anyway.

We did discuss the programme back in August in Chatterbox, but not to any great depth!

Something new on food network US, Thursday night, either 9 to 10,pm or 10 to 11pm ET and is available on the download circuit.

Similar in some aspects to Gordon ramsay-24 hours to hell and back. Not so OTT.

Did anyone else see Jason Atherton make a piperade on Saturday Kitchen, July 4?

He made a couple of comments about cooking it low and slow to get it “jammy” and also mentioned roasting or grilling the peppers and possibly the tomatoes before adding to the pot

So I thought I’d check the recipe on line, to pick up his tips
No, not the slow jammy piperade recipe he talked about but the quick timings used on air :evil: including the usual nonsensical idea that you can soften and colour onions in less than 10 minutes :evil: :evil:

I didn’t dream the slower version did I?

Sue

Just for fun I downloaded the July 4 edition of Saturday kitchen.

Yes Jason Atherton talked about low and slow especially with the fish. What he made with the peppers and onions did indeed look jammy. Quite nice actually.

If you watch the show that segment runs from 06:32 to 18:31.

I don't think you were dreaming

I might give that JM one a miss. I quite like him in some things but a cake extravaganza, no thanks.

Incidentally, I'm sure I watched Adam Richman (Man v Food) eat a doughnut sandwich burger which was created and sold as some sort of symbol for a local basketball team IIRC.

Stokey Sue, I watched Jason Atherton's 4 July today. In fact, you don't see him chopping or frying the onions, he actually starts with "and here's a pan with onions which you can see are quite jammy", so a Blue Peter made earlier panful. Matt Tebbutt made some the previous week "which we all know is 30-40 mins".

I've never heard of confited sardines before.
In another prog I think, the cook used polenta to coat fish skin before shallow frying (for crispness). Rick Stein's red mullet I think where he said the skin was very flavoursome. Must try that.

I’ve seen the James Martin United Cakes, that must be at least the third run

It’s got quite a good balance between travelogue and baking

They have started recording the new series of GBBO. Social distancing has caused some changes. No helping each other in an emergency. No Hollywood Handshakes (hurrah). The crew can no longer descend on the leftovers
