THIS year’s Masterchef is the head cook at Tootings Southern-Style Chicken, Kebab, Pizza and Curry takeaway restaurant in south London.
Restaurateur and manager Tom Logan beat off actual chefs with his mainly-microwaved selection of food for drunk people.
Logan said: Its hard to take part in Masterchef when youre also trying to organise the roster for delivery drivers, but I knew my pizza topped with kebab meat would impress the judges.
When Michel Roux went Ooh! at my lukewarm chicken burger with a range of free dipping sauces because it was a bit late, I knew I was in with a chance.
Top chefs like Heston Blumenthal ignore the fusion possibilities of microwaved Italian-style meatball jalfrezi pizzas.
Masterchef judge Greg Wallace said: When I bit into the deep-fried chilli and mozzarella cheeseballs it was as though a taste explosion hadnt happened in my mouth.
I could have eaten at least two more of those after getting in from the pub.
Logan is now planning to set up his own restaurant chain specialising in international cuisine that can be taken out of a chiller unit and reheated in a microwave.
