    A bit late to the party, but I have done one worst than gravy and chocolate cake and that is hot chocolate with onion gravy. In my defense I was deeply sleep deprived as I was in the last month of working on my master dissertation. Anyway I was pulling another all nighter and wanted a pick me up so got my usual pot, made some hot chocolate and went back to my dissertation. The only thing was that the chocolate was a bit lumpy but didn’t think much of it until I am half way through my cup and realize the lumps are not cacao but onions. Turns out my housemate had used the pot to make onion gravy earlier that day and left it on the hob with yeah u guessed it gravy in and I did not notice that when I grabbed it. So yeah that is where higher education gets you…

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.

It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.
