It seems everyone’s least favourite “celebrity” chef and Hobbit impersonator has stupidly suggested that people use a highly toxic plant in their cooking.
The BBC website tells us…
In a magazine interview about watercress and other wild foods, Mr Worrall Thompson said the weed henbane was “great in salads”.
Healthy & Organic Living magazine’s website has now issued an urgent warning that “henbane is a very toxic plant and should never be eaten.
The chef had meant to recommend fat hen, which is a wild herb.
What an absolute fool. In his usual arrogant manner he said…
“It’s a bit embarrassing but there have been no reports of any casualties. Please do pass on my apologies.”
You may know, or can guess, that I, like many, think very little of Anthony Worrall Thompson. In my opinion he’s just a very average cook (not chef) who has relied on luck and his resemblance to Bilbo Baggins to slap his name on as many products as possible to con money from people thinking he actually cares about quality.
I wonder how long it will take for people to realise he’s been trying to kill people for years? I mean, have you tried any of his branded food products? 😯
