Series five is up and running. Five part series. On BBC 1 at 1000am London time.

Gloria Hunniford and Chris Bavin unravel more medical myths and media confusion when it comes to the foods and drinks we consume every day.

Chris dissects worrying reports that eating chicken and turkey could cause cancer. Gloria looks at the trend for feeding pets raw meat. Could feeding your dogs in this way be putting you and your family’s health at risk? Danny Crates investigates whether fruit juice is really as bad for you as full-sugar fizzy pop. And we have a guide to making a classic teatime favourite - fish fingers - healthier.

On BBC 1,the BBC iPlayer and thru the download circuit.

The kitchen wisdom of Cecilia Chiang

Postby mark111757 » Sun Jul 26, 2020 8:50 pm

A new six-part cooking mini-series documenting the amazing life story of “the Julia Child of Chinese food in America.” In the 1950s, Chinese food in the U.S. was mostly westernized Cantonese food such as chop suey and chow mein. Then, along came restaurateur Cecilia Chiang. Never having cooked professionally, Cecilia launched the legendary Mandarin Restaurant in 1961 and influenced a new generation of chefs and food enthusiasts, including Julia Child, James Beard, and a young Alice Waters (before her Chez Panisse fame).

This is bring aired on public broadcasting here in the States. This was capped and ripped from the affiliate in San Francisco. It is also available on the download circuit.

Thank heavens that wretched "Snackmasters" didn't get a BAFTA. I don't watch much Food TV these days, was there a new programme this year you'd have considered worthy of an award?

This will be contentious but I actually thought the new series of Ready Steady Cook was quite good . . . .

But possibly not award-worthy . . . . . :lol:

I agree I liked RSC, for nostalgia alone. I think it depends on how you find Rylan too, he's a bit of a marmite character

A bit late - but the going rate for a 1 lb pie from that factory is £3.99. and to be honest, that's a bit less than I thought. They are delicious

Thanks Mark. I also used to like Ready Steady Cook, which was on at a time convenient for me to watch. I also enjoy watching "In The Factory" except for shouty Gregg Wallace! I would find "The Kitchen Wisdom of Cecilia Chiang" very interesting and will try to find her on YouTube.

I watched the first one and there were some intersting points made, still to watch the other two recorded on my Sky box.

Watched ALL of the Australian Masterchef, jeez that's a marathon. Well when I say "all", I've fast forwarded a lot of it when it's looked particularly repetetive/tedious. It doesn't bear much relation to any of the UK masterchefs, especially as they're all celebrity chefs! The "team" projects are done in incredibly good spirit, I'd expect there to be sparks flying. Maybe we're being spared some of the in-fighting...
