    Masterchef (including the Professionals & Celebrity series)
    Used to watch Great British Bake Off until it changed channels, but losing Mary, Mel & Sue wasn't great.....bet you're still watching because of Paul! (did learn how to make better shortcrust pastry because of him, but think that might have been from a book)
    Great British Menu
    But those whose TV programmes have influenced my cooking are:
    Nigel Slater (as well as his books) The TV series 'A Taste of My Life' I really enjoyed, but there have been others.
    The Hairy Bikers
    Jamie Oliver
    & Rick Stein mostly

    I watched a programme with Mary Berry - I can't remember the name but it was about comfort food. It wasn't just a cooking show, it would show her going around exploring different places and talking to people. I found it really interesting :)

    My favourite chefs are

    Mary Berry - I like her style of cooking and how she does her content
    Kieth Floyd - as I met him in Spain
    James Martin - as he is into his watches and cars and has a very impressive watch and car collection.
