Predictable Saturday Morning Filler Fayre
8 February 2014 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

Having watched Saturday KITCHEN several times over the last few months, I am still at a loss to work out precisely what the point of the show is. It doesn't really aim to provide a series of recipes for viewers; it doesn't really have any particular theme - for example, looking at different types of cuisine; nor does it really tell us much about particular chefs and their styles of cooking. Its sole purpose seems to be to provide a forum for chefs to show off their culinary skills - which most of them undoubtedly possess - while cracking a series of increasingly wearisome jokes. The atmosphere of perpetual jokiness becomes wearing in the end; one wishes they would just pipe down and get on with their cooking. Despite long experience of presenting the program, James Martin still looks embarrassed in front of the camera; he is palpably reading his lines from the autocue. No doubt the program will continue to run and run, but it definitely doesn't appear to have much point.
