James Martin is joined by top chefs John Williams and Lawrence Keogh for the cooking show. Hayley Westenra faces her food heaven or food hell, and there are classic moments from Rick Stein, Celebrity MasterChef and Raymond Blanc. Wine expert Susie Barrie chooses the wines to match the dishes cooked in the studio.
In this programme Hayley has to say what her idea of food heaven or food hell is and then the viewers have the opportunity to vote on one or the other. James Martin then has to cook the winning dish after which Hayley has to eat it!
Let's be kind to Hayley
The guest is normally present for most of the programme so we should get to see a lot of Hayley.
Yes, you're thinking of Gordon Ramsay. I'd rather eat at McDonald's than one of his restaurants!
LOL Me too.
I'm not saying the entire show is inspired by the Hell's Kitchen stuff, I meant the "food heaven or food hell" thing. That could be inaccurate, too, but I'm just trying to think of why they would do a segment like that, that's all.
Her food heaven was plaice and luckily that's what the chefs decided to cook for her. They chat about Hushabye after about 27 minutes if you're watching on the iplayer tomorrow and don't want to see the whole show. Not really worth watching it all unless you're really into cooking. Overall Hayley talks for about 10% of the time.

Hi Jeff, thanks for that. I haven't watched it yet but I did record it and will upload the bits involving Hayley, but if she appeared several times throughout it, the editing will take some time if it's to make sense.
