TV host and author Richard Osman escaped his food hell when he appeared on Saturday Kitchen when viewers were given the choice of two of his favorite dishes due to ” state of mind”.
The BBC’s hit show, hosted by chef Matt Tebbutt, often has audiences vote on dishes that guests might consider their heaven or hell – but this week, the choice was between the two. favorite dish.
As the show started, Tebbutt told Osman: “Now Richard, you usually know how this works, usually at the end of the show you’re facing food heaven and food hell, but with mood of the country, this week we’ll let the audience decide on your two favorite dishes. “
The former Pointless host Osman chose to make his two dishes of ham and cheese toast, and a pasta dish he said he recently tried in Italy while on vacation called cacio e pepe .
He explained his choice: “I love the cheese and ham toastie, is there a way to cook that? If it does, I bet you’ll find it – sprinkle some cumin on it or something.
“And then this summer I was in Italy and we had a dish called cacio e pepe, and I had absolutely no idea what it was, right, but I really liked it, so I wanted you to have it. I can make it and then I’ll see what it is. “
Tebbutt explains the options to viewers, saying, “It’s up to you guys to stay at home,” whether he makes “next-level ham and cheese toastie” which he says is based on a cake recipe. Sicilian sandwich or second, milan chicken served with cacio e pepe.
Cacio e pepe is noodles “mixed with butter and black pepper sauce, parmesan and pecorino, basically, it couldn’t be simpler or better,” says Tebbutt.
Osman, 51, announced in April this year that he would be returning from Pointless after nearly 13 years on the BBC show, co-hosting alongside Alexander Armstrong, since it debuted in 2009.
