Personally I find Rachel Allen's shows easy to watch and understand - she actually gives you the measurements - have done about 5 of her dishes from the Rachel's Favourite food series and couldn't believe how good (and easy) they were. Did three of them for a luncheon for eleven 20 somethings - they raved about the food and one girl asked if I was a chef! Hilarious but true. The peperonata, lamb shoulder with cummin and fennel (I did it with lamb cutlets), cucumber risa, chocolate torte and for another day Rachel's quiche lorraine - all fabulous. Am a big fan - love it when you can cook it and it looks like it does on TV and tastes gorgeous.

Irish women cooking LAMB doesn't do much for me. Why not bake a chicken and watch you don't get your breasts in it. Honestly is this a cooking show or soft porn. Gimme a break.

you're just jealous! Rachel Allen is a great cooking instructor, if you'd just give her a chance, you'd learn something.
