I'm Lily, this is Sapphire, Frank, Johnny and Elektra.
I've dragged in a few of my old friends
from the Dumping Ground days...
..to help with the project I'm doing on healthy living
at my catering college.
So, we've all chosen our favourite recipes and we've shoved them
into a hat for another person to select at random and make the meal.
The person who suggested the recipe is going to become the chef's
assistant and is going to tell us exactly why they chose it.
So, Frank, it's your turn...
Elektra's super-quick, fantastic fruit kebabs.
My kebabs are amazing and fast. I don't have time for messing about.
Internet-based T-shirt design companies do not run themselves.
I want food to be like - bam! - ready.
I want food to be so fast,
if you put it in the microwave, you go back in time.
-OK, we get it.
Well, then, why aren't we jump-cutting?
Come on, people, jump cut.
Fruit, chocolate, cream, butter and an orange for the zest, that's it.
Please, Elektra, do the ingredients properly.
I don't have time for grams and amounts, I've already moved on.
Frank, prepare the fruit.
You'd get a really good mark-up on these if you sold them.
Are you still trying to make fast money, Frank?
I thought your business course
was teaching you how to do it, like, properly.
But, seriously, how much do you think you could get for these?
Hey! Hands off the chocolate.
-So take out the stalk...
..and cut it in half if it's too big.
Great, go on, no time for talking,
keep cutting the strawberries, Frank.
-I'll show you.
A mango hedgehog!
A mango hedgehog. Frank, mate, you're a genius.
A mango genius.
We're not going to bother showing you how to cut a banana.
Although, when preparing it in advance,
squeeze lemon juice over it to stop it from going bad.
-You know, this isn't actually cooking, right?
You're just chopping up fruit.
I'm melting chocolate, actually.
Stirring warm things together is considered cooking.
And, so what, anyway?
I mean, you've got your five-a-day, vitamins and minerals and fibre
and a little bit of chocolate and cream because we deserve
a little bit of chocolate and cream in our lives every now and again.
Don't we, Sapphire?
Fruit and veg is better for you when you haven't cooked it
as much. This fruit happens to have chocolate sauce on it,
which is considered cooking, thank you very much.
-Frank, show them the sauce.
-Erm...we haven't made the sauce.
-Well, we'd better jump cut, then.
-I think so.
Kebab done, sauce on.
Slightly boiling water underneath
and broken up chocolate bits in a bowl on top,
not touching the water. It's really important
that the bowl isn't touching the water.
And only stir it occasionally,
otherwise it will turn into something like shoe polish.
Do you remember that bit where Lily said that Frank was cooking?
Frank is heating up the cream, butter,
orange juice and orange zest.
You are such an control freak. Like, you haven't changed a bit.
I am not, I just can't let the cream boil. Here, let me do it.
Just keep stirring it and then you pour it into the chocolate.
Yeah, is it supposed to look like that?
Shoe polish. You should have let me do that bit.
Lily, can we edit this bit out?
Yes, shall we do it again?
It should be smooth and glossy.
-Well done, Elektra.
-I'm just going to pour it on.
Spread it out and then leave it to cool.
-Yeah, looks pretty good.
But you still haven't said why you chose it.
Because I never made it for anyone at The Dumping Ground.
But, if I was there now,
this is exactly the kind of thing I would make for everyone.
Everyone in the kitchen having a laugh, getting chocolate everywhere.
Basically, ruining everything, but it would be a lot of fun.
So here's to The Dumping Ground.
To The Dumping Ground.
So where are we going to sell these?
Frank, we are not selling my kebabs!
