The fact that audiences are now so sophisticated that to show them the inner workings as if it were a treat for children makes you look more out of touch than cutting edge, does not seem to have struck anyone.

As a matter of fact, he can cook well enough to make an entertaining and craving-inducing show, create a practical and useful cookbook filled with meals kids and adults alike (including healthy recipes) will enjoy, and convince beginning and reluctant cooks they can also cook easy recipes that can both impress guests and save time and money for families. This was a week that urgently needed light relief, so cometh the hour, cometh the James May, erstwhile Top Gear amigo, the id to Richard Hammond’s ego (with no prizes for guessing who the super-ego might be in this formulation). I’m not one — yet — but I have devoted an episode to meat-free cooking and I’m particularly proud of my vegan burger. However, my wife has done a great job at trying out some of the recipes, and most of them have turned out to be pretty great.We have so much to be grateful for when it comes to these canned, bottled, ready made meals in our homes. His descriptions are more extensive, and his interactions with the crew and resident “food economist” Nikki range from charming to hilarious. When my brother and his family came into town a week later, we told them about the dish, and we ended up making double the servings for an extended family meal. It used to be a camping food staple and we used to do camping a lot when I was a child, so it's partly sentimentality, plus Spam is a funny word.

It allows men to have a tool set, as they did in the days when work involved a proper job of building or mending.In each episode, May assures us of his ineptitude in the kitchen (“I can’t cook – and welcome to my cookery show”), assembles some ingredients to create a couple of functional meals (it is not really cooking, and I say this as someone who fails to reach even May’s level of competence at least three days out of every seven), drinking a bit of wine, and doling out a few personal and historical facts as he goes. May’s book is as clever as it is useful, and even the recipes contain enough little quips, you’ll want to read through just so you don’t miss any jokes.
