I’m not a frequent watcher of cookery shows, it’s mostly my mother who watches these types of shows, never missing an episode of Hairy Biker’s Best of British. Personally, the closest I really get is Come Dine With Me, with the legendary commentary of Dave Lamb, who does dry humour like no other. However, something else that recently caught my attention was Masterchef. Perhaps more intense than the quaint Great British Bake Off, but it’s certainly inspired some of the meals I’ve recently cooked.
One of the presenters of the show is John Torode, who has four children. The youngest two are with his wife Jessica, from whom he has recently split. The elder two are from a previous relationship.
Now, I have no real guidance regarding which sibset gets a post each week, or even at all. Usually they’re ones which catch my eye the day or week before the post arrives. This one really caught my eye because in my intial research, I found the eldest child’s name oft reported as Marselle – I’m in France at the moment so it seemed apt, given the city of Marseille. However, interviews for the man himself reference a son named Marcel. I’ve also read a piece by him where he spells his youngest child’s name as Loulou.
