If you’re in the UK and you’ve not been watching The Great British Menu on BBC 2, I have only one question to ask…WHYYYYYYYY?

It’s obsessive viewing at the best of times, but especially last week when the lovely Lisa from Northcote (remember That Bloody Wedding) was cooking.

I don’t think my nails will ever recover from 5 nights of nibbling them.

But sanity and excellent taste prevailed and the judges unanimously voted her the winner to represent the North West.

We cheered. But not, I suspect, as much as her colleagues at Northcote did!

We’ll be watching till the final, and rooting for Lisa.  And then heading up to Northcote to check the new menu out for ourselves.
