#22: Great British Menu Drinking Game

Drink: Gin

The BBC’s Great British Menu is back in our lives, and fantastic as ever. But if watching arrogant chefs covering pigeon kidneys with a tarragon foam and sweetbread emulsion is starting to drag, crack open a bottle of gin and play the Kettle Thoughts Unofficial GB Menu Drinking Game.

The Rules

Two fingers/one sip of drink for every time someone says:

  1. “Ground Breaking”
  2. “Olympic”
  3. “Molecular Gastronomy”
  4. “Banquet”
  5. “Foam”
  6. “Sweetbreads”

Every time someone does “classic cooking with a modern twist”

Every time someone uses a clichéd sporting metaphor

Every time Oliver and Matthew argue about a dish

Every time someone meets a local grower or sporting personality

Every time a chef tells the waiters to “be careful” with their dishes (or anything similar)


If someone uses ‘Sea Buckthorn’ or ‘Douglas Fir’, finish your drink

    Thank god you didn’t include “Pushing the boundaries” otherwise I’m fairly certain I’d be dead from alcohol poisoning by now.

      And perhaps also every time the chefs are supposedly psyching each other out according to the narrator?
