I haven't been watching every episode of this series, but try not to miss Fridays when the judging is done. I have enjoyed it, and love the judges crits. I probably mostly go with Pru. (I also love her jewellery!) I do believe, in general, that Foodies watch with great interest, but most of us couldn't in any way achieve the heights reached - certainly not at home! Somehow or other, amongstall the dishes 'plated up' the judges manage to choose the most excellent. As much as Oliver Peyton is a slight grump during the series, he shows so much enthusiasm on the day and is terrific. There's definitely a fascination about watching these programmes. Cant wait for the next series.
