Rosemary Shrager's valuable TV cookery lessons
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."
