Loud, Bullying Chefs

 
Is being boorish, hectoring and obnoxious the only way to run a kitchen and command respect?

Maybe it just makes better TV, but most chefs we see post-Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares are militaristic clones of the wrinkle-faced Scot.

Itd be refreshing to see one cook who could run a tight-ship without the sergeant major theatrics but they must be thin on the ground.

There were more loud-mouths last night putting the three mild-mannered contestants through their paces during a gruelling 18-hour shift in kitchens.

The round is designed to test the endurance and nerve of the culinary hopefuls under real pressure.

Hapless policeman Rob started badly and struggled to recover until he excelled in the final round of cooking for judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

Meanwhile adventurous Sonal looked a potential winner in this episode, which gave last years beaten quarter finalist another bite at the cherry, with her Asian/British fusion dishes.

But the winner was Lois who, despite being vaguely annoying, seemed the most complete candidate. Her John Dory main course had Torode and Wallace cooing.

Like Dragons Den, Master Chefs contestants are usually genuine people, some misguided, others inspired.

And despite the inflexible format this series has been very watchable.

PRODUCER Jerry Bruckheimer is usually the last word in slick and he rarely disappoints with this FBI offering.

Likeable Aussie Anthony LaPaglia is one of those movie actors happy to mix it on the small-screen and he is the shows beating heart.

Last nights episode, which combined two tensely inter-woven plots about the FBI agents daughter being kidnapped by her ex, and a bereaved husband who couldn�t accept his wife�s death, was a cracker.

It is the kind of US series which you can dip in and out of and still enjoy a stand-alone episode
