Imagine what it would be like if the BBC devoted as much time to philosophy as it does to cookery shows.

And now, in a change to the advertised programme, Raymond Blanc will be discussing how to live.

He should share it with us.

I was watching him last night and did a reality check and thought, "I'm watching a camp Frenchman cook a fish- and this is entertainment?

Whilst I love cooking and am considered pretty good, indeed, I'm the granddaughter of a head cook, I find nothing about 'celebrity chefs',most of whom are not chefs but cooks and there's an important difference, entertaining unless it be the late and much lamented Jennifer Patterson whose hearty outlook on life and total lack of political correctness and dislike of food fascism I absolutely adored.

I find it odd that a nation that cooks less and less should have such an appetite for cookery shows.

And there, I think, you answer your own query. Many people can't or won't cook and this provides a vicarious alternative.

I suppose.

I just can't get terribly excited about food I'm never going to eat.
