Presenter: Now, if you’re one of the record 10 million people who watched the final of Clash of the Cooks on Sunday, don’t go away, because the winner of the show, Daisy Garrett is here to talk about the experience. Daisy, how are you?
Speaker: Tired but happy! I’ve done so many interviews since the final show. I’m glad there’s so much interest from fans, but what I really want to do is get some time off to go into the kitchen with Hugo and start planning our menu.
Presenter: Can you explain for people who don’t know, what is the prize for winning Clash of the Cooks?
Speaker: It is to work for Hugo Winterson in his highly respected restaurant in London – and it’s great opportunity for people with no training, because only people who have never made a living from cooking are allowed to enter.
Presenter: So Daisy, why do you think you won? Speaker: Partly because I wasn’t afraid to cook food that’s very unhealthy! I cooked potatoes in duck fat and my desserts were full of sugar. Which is many people’s favourite ingredient! My thinking was that Hugo was looking for someone to help persuade people to go to his restaurant, and people don’t eat out every night, so when they do, they forget about their diets and want to experience really tasty dishes.
Presenter: I’d certainly agree with that! So what was the hardest part of the competition for you?
Speaker: That was definitely show five, when we were presented with 10 unusual foods and had to use them all in our dishes that day. None of us knew what the foods were going to be, and I had never seen three or four of the vegetables in my life! Even after I’d tasted them all, I had no idea what to do with them. I wasted a lot of time experimenting with the vegetables that were new to me and trying to decide whether to boil, fry or grill them. In the end all I had time to do with them was a soup. It tasted fine. Every vegetable is suitable for soup in my view! But I got my lowest score that day because I didn’t do anything very original.
Presenter: I can think of only one point when Hugo was really unhappy with your performance. He criticised a meal that you made. Tell me about what went wrong on that day.
Speaker: Yes, that was the Italian-themed challenge. My favourite type of food is ham and pineapple pizza, but that isn’t Italian and I had to cook something traditional. I wanted to make pizza with smoked salmon rather than something meaty, and I was very focused on that, because I wanted to make sure I cooked the salmon for long enough, but not too long. It was really difficult and ended up overcooked.
Presenter: And what did you make for a starter?
Speaker: Well it seemed easy in comparison – tomato and pasta salad – and I didn’t put much thought into it. It was just pasta, fried garlic, breadcrumbs, herbs, salt, pepper and tomatoes. Anyway, the tomatoes were added at the end, and the mistake I made was to take them straight from the fridge. When Hugo tasted the dish, he said: “Don’t you know tomatoes lose their flavour when they’re cold?” So I’ll always make sure I take any tomatoes I use in the restaurant out of the fridge well in advance of serving them!
Presenter: Finally, what does the future hold for you, do you think?
Speaker: Most of the winners of the show have opened their own restaurants, and it’s assumed I’ll do the same. Owning a restaurant would be fantastic, but a chef’s life doesn’t appeal to me for the long term. I’d rather write recipe books.
