Peter Evans

Celebrity Chef

Born in Melbourne but raised by the beach on Queensland’s Gold Coast, one of the reasons a career as a chef appealed to Peter Evans was the lure of surfing all day and working at night.

Pete, how about showing a bit of compassion to the contestants on MKRs? They are not professional chefs, they are only cooks and they do their best and get that smug look off your face when you tell them that their food is s**t.

I always laugh when you judges crititise the contestants for using packaged pastry. I have never made my pastry from scratch. I have always used the packaged stuff and most of these cooks who have their own TV shows always says to use packaged pastry as it is more conveninate to use.

Drunken Noodles? I have never seen a drunk noodle in my entire life yet. It would be very interesting to see one though.

I agree, you he seems get off on it. Sikko! Maybe it's cos he can't cook. People who critisize harshly are usually hopeless at what they are critisizing, it kind of a drag them to the gutter attitude.
