We are avid watchers of Masterchef, a TV show that seems to have some similarities to The Biggest Loser but is actually about various contestants preparing and cooking food. There is a regular part of the show called "The Pressure Test" where the bottom three contestants are shown a prepared dish, taste it and then each have to cook the dish from the recipe provided which is then judged for taste, presentation and how well it has been prepared.
A couple of weeks ago (maybe more) when the contestants made Sticky Date Pudding with butterscotch sauce and almond praline, the Mister commented that it didn't seem that hard to make and that you just needed to follow the recipe. I downloaded the recipe from their website so he could have a go, which is what he did last night.
He didn't do too badly for someone that doesn't do any cooking at all, although there were a lot of comments mainly along the lines of "that tastes beautiful" (a comment that is often heard on the show). Admittedly, I weighed the ingredients for him, but he did everything else, including the praline, with minimal advice from me. We had some last night, it was very sweet, the praline crackled and crunched and was probably the best part.
