    Did Barry and Jamie eat Ben's ensemble the wrong way round? ie dessert first?

      Much as I love James, I think this time Ben won because he did a full 3-course meal in his 20 minutes. And who wants to overcook their steak like that? Very rare, please - BLUE, even.

            Wouldn't you rather cook with gas? Just wondering.

              Any chance that Ben and James could teach those of us who can do some basics to plate it up in a more stylish way for when we really want to impress?

                I 100% agree that Ben should have won. It’s because the focus was on the ultimate 20 minute meal. I’m sure both were delicious though. But three courses in 20 minutes??? Ebbers you spoil us.

                        The chef battles are much better than the Ultimate series but I still find the childish commentary and behaviour quite annoying. The Sorted videos I like best is when Ben is cooking proper meals with one of the guys preping the ingredients, I actually learn from these videos unlike the Ultimate battles and only a little from these chef battle.

                                                        Hey guys. I love your stuff. I still have more to watch but I've been sub'd for months. I was shopping the other day and found some jicama. I love the stuff but I am used to finding it at salad buffets, so having it in my kitchen is new. I have not seen it used in the SortedKitchen yet and was wondering what you five think of it?

                                                          Both of these meals are incredible feats but I wonder how long these meals would have actually taken if my oven wasnt magically preheated, or ramekins already set out and pre greased. Maybe do a similar battle from ACTUAL start to finish, getting out dishes and everything

But both meals were lovely and I'm in awe of their ability to pull it together in 20 minutes. Also, how cute was that mutual admiration society before hand between the two chefs?!

                                                                                          That should read not a chef vs not a chef. You cannot be from the uk and be real chef. People in the uk don’t understand how the whole food thing works. You guys prove that true with every episode you make. You’ve never once made edible food.

                                                                                            A) Flabbergast my inlaws
                                                                                            B) Deeply disturb my wife when I start foaming the flavoured milk

And it's so rare where I grew up in the USA and even rarer here in South Africa. I would die for a rhubarb themed show with new things to do with it. Just LOVE it. Miss it so much.
