That's 3 1/2 hours of food programmes in one evening alone. And let's not forget about the re-runs of Come Dine With Me on More4.
Now, I'm not saying I don't like any of them (there are some I don't like), but what's that old food adage again? Oh, yes...
Everything in moderation.
Let's have fewer of them, make them better, and make them special.
I do have to say that I think there are some programmes/chefs that I just cannot get enough of: Gordon Ramsey; Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall; Nigel Slater; and (most of) Heston Blumenthal.
What do you think? Is there too many or not enough? Are they good enough?
And, what are your favourites? Past and present.
