Very mixed reactions from this show, but at the end of the day I somehow managed to enjoy it! I think the setting really helps, you just get that laid back feel from watching the show, even if Miguel is over the top!! I think Sarah Clare was great with the drinks, I think she should have her own show!! Now that would be something different, a show focusing on cocktails and the like!!!

Recorded the show and watched it last night with my children, aged 20 & 14. Both commented Miguel was completely over the top and put on, the 14yo said if he doesn't wake up and tone down nobody will watch after the next episode. The 20yo simply said he was a ... and would prefer Boys Weekend.
Me, he was trying way too hard first time around and nervous. Let's see what the next episode delivers as he relaxes.

I love the show and find the recipes have a tropical twist to an old favourite. I only wish that the cocktail receipies were listed on the site also!

I watched this for the first time yesterday and I have to say Miguel's enthusiasm is infectious! Haven't enjoyed a cooking show this much for ages - thanks for 'putting a smile on my dial' Miguel and you've won another fan!!!
