Nigel Slater made a guest appearance on Saturday Kitchen today for one of the food films.
The chef decided to stick to a theme of New Year’s Day and wondered what one should eat on the big day.
Sticking to a hangover cure, Nigel prepared a lentil and beef salad which would be sure to perk up the consumer.
He warmed some lentils to which he added a mustard sauce and leftover roast beef.
But some viewers didn’t find the recipe too appealing after a night of drinking.
Many flocked to Twitter to comment on the dish.
One said: “These are two words that should never be used together – hangover. And salad.”
Another added: “I seriously dispute that lentils in a salad can sort out your hangover.”
A third commented: Nigel Slater’s hangover cure is a beef and lentil salad. Has the man never heard of a roll ‘n’ square and a Caramel Wafer?”
A fourth shared: “‘Nigel Slater’s hangover lentil and beef salad’. There’s a bloke who doesn’t drink enough. Has no idea how to handle a hangover.”
Today’s Saturday Kitchen welcomed Tamzin Outhwaite on to the show.
The EastEnders’ star took an unusual approach to the hit BBC One programme.
Usually, host Matt Tebbutt invites the celebrity guest to reveal their “heaven and hell” choices of food.
But Tamzin left everyone shocked this morning when she admitted she didn’t have anything she disliked.
Instead, she chose a combination that doesn’t always take her fancy: chocolate and orange.
Last week, viewers were seriously impressed with the Saturday Kitchen guest.
Chris Stark was spotted downing his wine while everyone else sipped along.
The Radio One DJ was a last minute arrival on the show, having filled in for Professor Green.
But nevertheless, fans loved him and branded him a “legend”.
Saturday Kitchen airs Saturdays on BBC One at 10am.
