Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

Morrisons' Lentil and Bacon Soup

Morrisons' Lentil and Bacon Soup

Those of you who want to spend a warm dry evening inside, instead of venturing out to a restaurant, may be tempted to have a nourishing bowl of soup.

In that event, I strongly suggest that you avoid Morrisons' Lentil and Bacon soup.

I tried a bowl of it this weekend, and found the taste bland in the extreme.

Were it not for the label, and pieces of tasteless ham in it, I would have assumed it was a rather bland mushroom soup.

Avoid!

Jamie's Brighton

Jamie's Brighton

We were going to visit Jamie Oliver's restaurant in Brighton this Saturday. However, when trying to a book a table, I was informed by a member of their staff that they were not taking bookings that evening.

Their loss!

Poncey Food

Poncey Food

The Times reports that Michelin starred chef, Ryan Simpson, has stormed out of his kitchen, at The Goose in Britwell, after being told that his food was "too poncey".

Simpson, his kitchen and waiting staff quit after the owner said that his menu was unsuitable for local diners. The restaurant has closed.

Why employ a Michelin quality chef in the first place then?

Engineering a walk out is a neat way to avoid paying redundancy though.
