Rosemary Shrager thinks TV cookery shows are really useful for teaching people basic and valuable skills in the kitchen
Rosemary Shrager thinks TV cookery shows are a "very good thing" for teaching people valuable skills.
The TV chef - who finished sixth on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' last year - is delighted to see so many culinary programmes on the small screen because they are really useful for teaching people how to perform basic skills in the kitchen.
She said: "Yes, more people are inspired today. For instance, I get people coming to the cookery school and they already know how to chop with a knife and they know how to cut an onion. I think that it is great that people are learning how to prepare the product because you are not always taught by your parents, so I think it is a very good thing."
Rosemary, 62, also believes TV chefs have inspired the public to be more creative in the kitchen, and learn a lot more about different foodstuffs.
She added: "We're showing audiences where things come from and we are teaching them how to prepare, techniques and methods. I also think celebrity chefs are making people aware of different varieties and different things that are out there. So there is a lot more interest in food than there was 20 years ago as we know more about the world today."
