Perhaps a copy of the recipe index might inspire me to purchase the publication

Indeed!

Stay safe all, however you choose to do so...or are able to do so.

The girl in the back (yeah, the one not working like a navvy) was bloody loud and irritating. I'm surprised he hasn't brained her with a wok, daughter or no daughter  :clown2:

Not like me to disparage a woman, but she does seem to be a serious waste of space ...

I think she is the one who is relaying any questions from viewers to Khoan. That is her task here.

You may well be right, Garp — you may very well be right.

I'm sure that's the aim but it clearly doesn't work and, as others have said, is incredibly irritating. They need to adjust how it's done.

That's the difference between a working kitchen and the over-long, stretched-out videos of R Sayce, where he occasionally checks the messages himself.

I have no idea what, if any, point you are trying to make, George. Vong has a large amount of videos online. Maybe he is just doing this as an insight into life in the kitchen - I don't know. But if you are cooking live, you can't be reading questions; hence his daughter's role.

I thought I was agreeing with you and everyone else. I agree with you about the young woman's role. I disagree that if you are cooking live, you can't be reading questions. Haven't you watched any of Richard Sayce's live cooking sessions?

I agree with others that the approach doesn't work, with the young woman waving her arms around in the background; it's irritating.

The big difference mate, is that Misty Ricardo is doing a live cooking session for people to follow - Vong is running a business and allowing it to be filmed.

Either way, I think it's safe to say we're probably all grateful that she's not groundstaff at Heathrow   :omg: :wink:
