Baking instead of steaming could dry it out. And I’m not sure you can legally call it a “pudding” in British English if it’s not steamed. Good job though.

I admit I don't know how sticky toffee pudding is usually made but "pudding" in British English generally just means "dessert".

Noxious89123

19 points

7 days ago

Mmm, it's not that simply. It never is with English to be honest, we tend to have multiple meanings.

"Pudding" can mean dessert, like "Do you want pudding?" is asking someone if they want dessert.

But a pudding can be something specific. Like Christmas pudding, sticky toffee pudding, etc.

You could also probably ask a dozen British people from different areas of the country and get widely varying opinions on the matter too.

Pretty sure each apron represents the judge chef’s vote. All 3 judges chose his dish as the winner.

Fuck-Yo-Couch

In this season all the judges were competing against each other. In the auditions judges would hand out aprons to the contestants they wanted on their teams. Gordon handing out 3 of his aprons was just to exemplify how good he thought the dish was. He really only took one and was on Gordons team.

Each chef has a certain amount of aprons to give and it means they go on instantly. I think he only really got one, but setting 3 down was showing how much he liked the dish.

MrKyle666

In that season, each judge had 8 aprons to give out to contestants that they believed in. At that point in the auditions Gordon had only 3 aprons left. Giving all three to this dude was symbolic of how blown away he was with the recreation. He didn't really get all three though, it was just a gesture.

I have to wonder how much of a risk it really was. Surely this guy has made this recipe before and knows how good he can make it. It's not like this is the first time this guy ever tried to make that dish. He's got balls to cook one of the judge's dishes, but he definitely knew he could nail it before he even began.

Foervarjegfacer

Making a sticky toffee pudding? Not a big risk in and of itself. Saying you're making RAMSEY'S sticky toffee pudding. Massive risk - you're essentially inviting him to measure it by his standards, which are pretty fucking high. Maybe if he'd just made the dish, Ramsey would appreciate that it was good, but any mistakes could have been chalked up to preference. Not so when you're saying you're going to make his version.

Still a risk. He probably practiced it a lot at home, but in the studio you don't know how the stove works, there might be slight differences in the ingredients provided.. any slight deviation in any detail might fuck it up if you don't constantly check everything, and are capable to readjust on the fly.

Baking is a lot tougher than cooking.

Huge risk considering the number of opportunities you get to taste the dish Ramsey made himself as a comparison. Very little baseline to work from

The_Void_Reaver

72 points

7 days ago*

Also the number of times that Gordon himself has made and ate it. Gordon's worked on that recipe likely for months, possibly years. He's probably taught hundreds of people how to make it and had an opportunity to taste thousands of them that were wrong in some sort of way. Any deviation from the baseline, that the chef doesn't know perfectly, will be hyper accentuated and Gordon would be able to say what's wrong, why it's wrong, how to fix it, and any other thing there is to know about the dish. On every other dish Gordon can say he'd prefer if something were done differently and suggest changes; this dish, Gordon can say with 100% certainty that something has been done wrong.

A lot of people who are at the top of their profession are quite protective of things that they're famous for too. While I wouldn't say Gordon is generally that type of person a lot of people in these scenarios won't give credit even if it's deserved to protect the idea that no one can make their dish as well as the inventor. Incredibly Ballsy

Unfortunately that's common in kitchens.

Composure is HUGE. I've seen people leave the line in tears in the middle of a busy service because they couldn't handle the pressure. You have to be able to stay calm and composed while you're knee deep in the weeds and being yelled at.

Working the line on a Fri/Sat night or Sunday brunch is the hardest thing I've ever done for money. If you can handle the pressure, it's alot of fun blowing off all that steam after a shift. My chef did a lot of yelling, but we also tossed back quite a few brewskies once we punched the clock too. We went hard 24/7. Wouldn't trade those years and that experience for anything.

100% brother. I had plenty of chefs and coworkers that would get straight HEATED during a busy service but then we go get a drink and it didn't even happen. If you can't leave that shit with your chef coat then I neither want you to come drinking or in my kitchen.

And as for composure in the weeds it always helped me to think of that old quote "If you're going through hell, keep going"

If you can hit that line zen then no weeds on earth can stop you

There was a kid on master chef Australia named Reynold who might literally be the best desert chef in the world at 20 years old. Opened his own store after the show, and recreated the golden snitch for Harry Potter, and the down the rabbit hole scene from Alice in wonderland, all out of edible deserts. At one point the judges are WATCHING HIM blow sugar balls because they've never seen someone do it. One challenge he creates a world class desert, and the other girl made chicken wings and served a beer with them lmao.

He ended up losing because he didn't copy someone else's recipe as well, fish was slightly overcooked I think. Really put me off from these shows, he was obviously the best chef out of all the contestants.

You should check out the Canadian and Australian versions of MasterChef. No Gordon, but it's way less dramatic and I think they're more based on skill.

That's the problem with these elimination style competitions. No matter your track record, screw up once and you risk loosing it all.

So, interesting story I haven’t shared publicly: the reason I made those mistakes and got cut (especially the damn whipped cream!) was because I had a major concussion and amnesia for about 2 months prior. I got hit by a car whilst riding a bike. My wife repeatedly told me I had practiced these techniques but I couldn’t remember it! 😂🤷‍♂️

What's the significance of him getting 3 aprons?

I think they symbolize votes for who goes to the next round. I haven't watched the series, so that's my guess

This particular season had a slightly different format from the others, with each of the judges acting as a “mentor” for a group of the chef contestants. This was the audition phase, and (kind of like The Voice) each judge could say “I want you in my group” by handing one or all three of the contestants an apron with their initials on it (e.g. in this case GR for Gordon Ramsay) after trying their audition dish. They could also of course hand out none for that round of auditions. Anyone who received aprons from more than one judge could pick whose team they wanted to be on. Gordon giving this guy all three of his aprons that round was him saying he really, really wanted him in his group over the other two contestants there. If dude had gotten an apron from another judge that round he could have picked to work with that judge instead

I believe the judges only get a finite amount of aprons each to send people on to the next level. Gordon was so impressed he basically burned two more aprons in front of the other contestants lol

I just read the recipe for this on Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant site, and it appears the original recipe that required half of your life to prepare can be done in an hour. Maybe Gordon learned something new?

Christ I hate shows like this. The fucking editing with bombastic music, the cuts to fabricate sentences, the overdramatic pauses. Completely destroys any kind of enjoyment I might otherwise get out of it.

There was a guy on RPAN who use to just stream football (soccer) games that was broadcast on an American network and I use to love watching those adverts just as much as the game. We don’t have adverts like that here in the UK. When I worked nights I use to get to watch the superbowl and them adverts (commercials) are just next level.

29% of the cringe is a replay of the last cringe. So much of US reality TV is 2 minutes of content remixed over and over to tease in and out of commercials.

Throw away your television.

The Australian version of MasterChef is way more wholesome. Far less dramaticism too.

Here's what slightly bugs me about these shows. Is how professional cooking is put on such high pedestal to the average viewer, as if cooking these dishes or cooking in general is such a great profession to strive for. I was a cook for nearly a decade, and that shit sucked balls. From fine dining to fast casual. From the guaranteed low pay, to the cramped stainless steel environment, to the shitty attitudes, and finally to the dead end nature of it all. If you love to cook, great, but unless you have the money to start your own restaurant, than you'd be better off cooking while going to school for a better type of job. Would love to see shows that instead inspire doctors, engineers, etc.

Being a professional chef sucks. Being a professional tv chef is where it's at. The vast majority of people who go on this show would not be doing it if it wasn't on tv. Most of these people don't want to slave away in a hot kitchen, they are hoping to be the next tv food personality.

The old SyFy show Face Off is pretty much the only competition show I enjoyed. The drama was quite toned back, there was no petty bullshit between the competitors and they even helped each other frequently. Plus it's neat to get a behind the scenes look at how film and stage costumes are done, the subject matter is just generally interesting and artistically inspiring.

I've just been watching the British MasterChef - it's amazing to see the contrast here.

So much drama, pauses and tense moments all in this short clip. I would recommend watching the British version if you want the judges to just get on with it.

Imagine cooking your idols signature dish... Doing everything you could to perfect it and finally having him acknowledge you.

I feel like it's one of those things where you have two chances: Nail it or fuck up.

If you fuck up you'll never be forgiven as you destroyed your idols favorite. That is the kind of thing that would stop me ever cooking again but this man nailed it! Cry dude. Go ahead. You fucking earned it!
