FED UP.. OF FOOD SHOWS.

Byline: KEVIN O'SULLIVAN

VARIETY is the spice of TV life. What a mouth-wateringly imaginative telly menu to choose from!

Thrill to the usual list of reality regulars cooking on the Beeb's (Minor) Celebrity Masterchef. Or Marco Pierre White cooking on ITV's (not so) Great Brit ish Feast . Or Gordon Ramsay cooking on C4's F Word. Not to mention BBC2's five-days-a-week helping of Ready Steady Cook and a much-needed new series called Chinese Food Made Easy.

Then there's ITV's Daily Cooks Challenge. And, if you're still hungry at the weekend, why not feast on BBC1's Saturday Kitchen and Rachel's Favourite Food? Yawn.

Too many cooks spoil the schedule. But seriously folks, I've had a gut-full of this endless succession of stale old culinary shows being rehashed and served up as fresh.

Thanks to amusingly noisy hosts Gregg "rich, full of flavour" Wallace and dishevelled Aussie John "seriously sexy pudding" Torode, Masterchef is easily the best of the bunch.

Golden girl contestant Denise Lewis was stunned when a bossy chef told her: "Give me a partridge as fast as you can. It's an emergency partridge!" It's only food. Get a life.
