Welcome to the show on Sunday, 6th November. It is 10.00am. We're

:00:09.:00:16.

stoipd by the star of BBC Three's most successful ever sitcom Him and

:00:16.:00:25.

Her, Russell Tovey and Sarah Solomany. And we have autor, people

:00:25.:00:32.

watcher and stand-up comic Mark Watson. Not here yet. He's a no-

:00:32.:00:39.

show. Used to be such is a nice guy. He's changed! They will be here to

:00:39.:00:45.

cook food or assault it in Mark's case. And take a look at next

:00:45.:00:55.
:00:55.:01:02.

week's best telly. This is Welcome to Something for the

:01:02.:01:07.

weekend. Can we point a camera at Mark. Frplt he just walked through

:01:07.:01:15.

the door. Yeah,. How's Harry? Harry's doing well. He's at home

:01:15.:01:20.

recovering. He's all good. Harry Redknapp, if you don't know who I'm

:01:20.:01:28.

talking about. Your fer-in-law. I said Mark Watson was coming on the

:01:28.:01:35.

show on Twitter. You have to show the moment Louise was on eighth out

:01:35.:01:42.

of ten cats talking about the spine game. I can see myself getting red.

:01:42.:01:52.
:01:52.:01:52.

I love it. Sean Locke is one of my favourite comedians. This is Louise.

:01:52.:02:00.

Here you go. What he'd do is go out and get some road kill. Get road

:02:00.:02:04.

kill. He'd whip the spine out. Break up all the vertebrae. Put it

:02:05.:02:12.

in a sack. Then he'd bounce it on our heads and we'd have to guess

:02:12.:02:17.

what animals it is. Spine in a sack? You probably called it back

:02:17.:02:26.

in a bag. Are you guys winding me up? Is there really a game... ARE

:02:26.:02:34.

YOU WINDING ME UP? I'm not even joking. I feel so embarrassed. I

:02:34.:02:40.

really wasn't sure whether it was a joke or not. That was a genuine...

:02:40.:02:44.

He was so serious. I'm thinking if there was a game like. That it was

:02:44.:02:49.

awful. A dead animal in a bag and you have to guess what animal it is

:02:49.:02:56.

from the spine. What was he talking about? I'm not a comedy genius,

:02:56.:03:03.

clearly. The biggest laugh the show got. I'm not funny. Completely lost

:03:03.:03:09.

in the moment. The stories are massively believable. He's so well

:03:09.:03:15.

structured. Did you enjoy doing it? It kind of went before my eyes. I

:03:15.:03:20.

understpood some of it. Sean was brilliant. It was good to be on his

:03:20.:03:26.

side. Mark Watson's in the midst of a stand-up tour where he allowed

:03:26.:03:32.

the fans to choose the locations he gigs at. He also has a lot to say

:03:32.:03:39.

about his new Radio 4 show. Life as a bloggaholic. Plus, Russell Tovey

:03:39.:03:44.

and Sarah Solomany are here to talk about the modern-day love story Him

:03:44.:03:50.

and Her and how Russell ended up playing a fire-breathing drag on

:03:50.:03:55.

called Squirt. Leave your name when you leave a message for Mark,

:03:56.:04:00.

Russell or Sarah. Simon, what have you for us today?

:04:00.:04:10.

We've some road kill. In a bag! Ball in a bag! We're starting off

:04:10.:04:16.

with August gene satay skewers. We've taken the backbone out of the

:04:16.:04:22.

aubergine and left with the flesh. Proper satay sauce made with fresh

:04:22.:04:27.

peanuts. Rather than peanut butter. Very lucky people. Main recipe is a

:04:27.:04:36.

beef, venison and oyster pie. Loads of Sven Sven sin around at the

:04:36.:04:43.

moment. Look at that. The oyster must get lost in there? Is

:04:43.:04:49.

doesn't it is such a strong flavour you get that hint the sea. Or use

:04:49.:04:53.

anchovies. That little bit of saltiness of fishiness in there.

:04:53.:04:59.

Very nice. And easy pop-up cakes. This is a massive trend happening

:04:59.:05:06.

in the States. If you imagine the combination of a pop up ice lolly

:05:07.:05:11.

but doing it with a cake rather than something frozen. An assembly

:05:11.:05:15.

job. Really tasty. Good thing to do with your kids. Finally, we're

:05:15.:05:21.

doing sole cod. -- salt cod. Massively intense flavour. This

:05:21.:05:31.
:05:31.:05:32.

combines the salt cod with celeriac. Milk. Delicious. Very salty. Sounds

:05:32.:05:38.

nice. You can look up and follow those recipes on our website.

:05:38.:05:45.

Here's what else you can look forward to on today's show.

:05:45.:05:50.

Meet Karen in the The Growing Pains Of A Teenage Genius. I'm doing a

:05:50.:06:00.
:06:00.:06:02.

degree in maths. It's Series 2 at St Saviour in The Marshes. A dau

:06:02.:06:12.
:06:12.:06:13.

without your TV and games. An ox meets wolves in frozen planet.

:06:13.:06:21.

wolves isolate their victim. A great line-up. What have you got

:06:21.:06:28.

to look good against Mr Wayne Collins? A ray of south American

:06:28.:06:37.

sunshine today. A nice twist on a z Brazilian drink and piscopunch.

:06:37.:06:45.

Really nice. Cool. Sounds good. We're also doing on the show today,

:06:45.:06:50.

which I'm a bit disgusted about. We're doing Christmas gifts. It's

:06:50.:06:54.

November and we're doing Christmas. You have to start early. I know you

:06:54.:06:58.

have to prepare early frplt thought this year, I'm going to

:06:58.:07:02.

start Christmas shopping next week. Really? I always leave it to the

:07:02.:07:06.

last ten days and I spend all the lead up to Christmas when you

:07:06.:07:10.

should be having fun and taking the kids out shopping like a mad woman.

:07:10.:07:15.

Sweating, coming home, 10.00 at night. Shouting at everybody the no

:07:15.:07:20.

the getting into the mood for Christmas. No-one's tidied up.

:07:20.:07:25.

Everybody says I am is a bah hum bug. Should be less presents for

:07:25.:07:30.

people. Everyone in Tim's family, less presents. Then you don't have

:07:30.:07:36.

to do all that rining around. present has more thought in it than

:07:36.:07:44.

lots of things. It should be called bookds mass. Or just download a

:07:44.:07:51.

book. We're doing ten presents to give a woman in your life today.

:07:51.:07:56.

Ideas. Ten ideas. Next week we're doing men and then children.

:07:56.:08:00.

Christmas should start 1st December. I know what you're saying.

:08:00.:08:09.

early. Do you think? No? I do, Tim, I do. What are we making then?

:08:09.:08:13.

we have that sombre mood in the we have that sombre mood in the

:08:13.:08:22.

kitchen. Aubergine, sat sta, pea nuts, soy sauce, chilli, garlic, a

:08:23.:08:30.

bit of water. We need the aubergine to be cut into cubes. Any size

:08:30.:08:37.

really. Ideally, if you cut slices about that kind of size. Then cut

:08:37.:08:42.

that into three. We're looking at pieces about that big. Chuck them

:08:42.:08:49.

in a Bolland we'll chuck oil on. In the meantime, we'll start off --

:08:49.:08:56.

chuck it in a Bolland we'll start off.

:08:56.:09:01.

Aubergine needs to be cooked perfectly? You can't cut an

:09:01.:09:08.

aubergine quickly without it tasting like a bitter sponge. That

:09:08.:09:16.

horrible acidity. It needs moisture. When they are cooked properly they

:09:16.:09:21.

are delicks. The satay sauce. Oil in the pan. We'll toast off the pea

:09:21.:09:26.

nuts. Ideally what you'd do is pop them into a wok or stir-fry them.

:09:26.:09:30.

You want colour on there. Just raw pea nuts. You want them in some

:09:30.:09:35.

nice warm oil and toast them. What you're looking to do is get some

:09:35.:09:41.

good colour on there. Next, Lou, you're too fast for me. Bit of oil

:09:41.:09:47.

on there. Bit of salt. Little bit of pepper. I like getting a bit of

:09:47.:09:55.

responsibility! Tim, your job. Slice that down the middle. We want

:09:55.:10:00.

very thin half moons. We'll toast off all of the nuts. Puree the nuts.

:10:00.:10:05.

Fry them with all the other ingredients. Lou, are you done on

:10:05.:10:14.

that one? How much? Just a pinch? Beautiful. Next, our aubergines on

:10:14.:10:18.

to there. Nice hot griddle pan. If you haven't a griddle pan just

:10:19.:10:24.

grill these. The griddle pan gives us that nice, lovely, delicious

:10:24.:10:29.

charred lines. This is really, we are doing it as a starter, but it

:10:29.:10:34.

could be something for Christmas, Tim. A nice little Christmas treat.

:10:34.:10:39.

I do love Christmas. I just think it should be just one month of it.

:10:39.:10:44.

Just go tor it. It is pretty much. It is what most people do from

:10:44.:10:49.

December. I quite like the idea of shopping now, though, I wasn't

:10:49.:10:55.

enjoying the lead up because I was so crazy businessy. So I'll try to

:10:55.:11:03.

be a bit organised. Shop online. I do the trapsing up and down in

:11:03.:11:08.

the shops looking for the perfect gift. I still like going to the

:11:08.:11:13.

shops shops. I like a bit of both, me. I don't do much online. Will we

:11:13.:11:20.

be making any Christmas cakes or anything? I don't ever make my own

:11:20.:11:25.

Christmas cake. Is that wrong? are we doing with this? You can

:11:25.:11:31.

smell it already, lovely, intense peanut smell as the oil heats up.

:11:31.:11:36.

Let's imagine these have a nice golden colour on them. Pop the pea

:11:36.:11:43.

nuts in there. Chuck all the shallots into there, Tim. I've

:11:43.:11:49.

chopped a chilli. We fry those out for a couple of minutes. Blend

:11:49.:11:54.

those so they become nice and smooth. Good. Give that a stir

:11:54.:12:04.
:12:04.:12:04.

around. You don't want too much oil. There is plenty of oil in the pea

:12:04.:12:09.

nuts. That will do you. Lovely, really, really nice. That will do,

:12:09.:12:13.

Tim. The more you toast them, the more intense that smell is. That

:12:14.:12:20.

will give you a deeper flavour into your satay. That goes into the pan

:12:20.:12:24.

with the shallots and chilli. You would ideally cook those out for

:12:24.:12:30.

about three or four minutes to soften them. As the aubergines char

:12:30.:12:37.

turn those over so they soften. We then add chilli powder which will

:12:37.:12:43.

give us... When you taste this, you will get a big kick. The front,

:12:43.:12:47.

you'll get the nice spice and chilli. Then you'll get a long,

:12:47.:12:53.

lingering taste in there. In goes the sugar. A bit of garlic. Lou, if

:12:53.:13:00.

you'd like to thread the aubergines on the sticks. What did you put in

:13:00.:13:10.
:13:10.:13:10.

there? Soft brown sugar. What's What's that? Soy sauce. Put them on

:13:10.:13:17.

the skewers. Lovely toasted pea nuts and chal lots and chilli.

:13:17.:13:24.

Lovely smell. This, as a crumb, if, for example, you cooked pork chops

:13:24.:13:30.

tonight, if you cooked that and used it to spripgle as a crumb its

:13:30.:13:38.

delicious on a peace of meat. We're turning this into a sauce. We add

:13:38.:13:42.

our magic ingredient, water. We cook that out for about 15-20

:13:42.:13:49.

minutes. Add water, reduce, add more. This is our lovely delicious

:13:49.:13:52.

satay sauce. You can see how thick that is. Again, I'll bring that

:13:52.:13:59.

down to a slightly more pouring consistency. I've left them like

:13:59.:14:05.

this. Is that betteder? Perfect. Now we've massively intense flavour.

:14:05.:14:10.

We squeeze some lemon juice into this right at the end so the lemon

:14:10.:14:15.

juice stays nice and fresh. If you put it in too early, the heat of

:14:15.:14:22.

the pea ds nuts and lemon, it will become sour. We want this to be a

:14:22.:14:30.

fresh lemony kick. To serve this, those, if we're going to do this as

:14:30.:14:35.

a can pay, you can have those on a plate with the satay sauce to dip

:14:35.:14:40.

into. What we're going to do for presentation, little bit of simple,

:14:40.:14:48.

plain boiled rice. We go, one, two, three. Always has to be odd numbers.

:14:48.:14:57.

We simply spoon this lovely satay sauce over the top like that. I'll

:14:57.:15:04.

give you a little bit there to dip into. That's it. Go for it. Dead,

:15:04.:15:14.
:15:14.:15:16.

dead simple. Nice. You can make tons and tons of it. It's quite hot.

:15:17.:15:24.

Really nice. So often you see satay sauce made with pea nut butter.

:15:24.:15:34.
:15:34.:15:38.

What are we making next? Beef The aubergine satay skewers are at

guests are the omni-present stars Steve and Becky in BBC Three's most

:17:52.:17:57.

watched sitcom, Him And Her. It is like a fairy story. One minute she

:17:57.:18:02.

is on the perfume counter. The next minute on X Factor. They put her

:18:02.:18:07.

through to boot camp. She didn't make the finals because it's fixed.

:18:07.:18:10.

All I'm saying is everything happens for a reason. You make your

:18:10.:18:14.

own luck in this world. You got a bit of toothpaste on your cheek!

:18:14.:18:21.

have a spot coming, Steve. Dries the skin out. You both look

:18:21.:18:31.
:18:31.:18:33.

absolutely lovely. Oh, Becky! You'll be the ones with the

:18:33.:18:37.

hangovers! LAUGHTER Nice. Welcome to Something For The Weekend

:18:37.:18:43.

Russell and Sarah. How you doing? Very good. Thank you for having us.

:18:43.:18:50.

How many takes for that? Did it in one! It was a tinned peach at one

:18:50.:18:55.

point. There were a couple of eggs going through. You cheat! Him And

:18:55.:19:01.

Her, what a success. It is great. It's the BBC Three's biggest sitcom,

:19:01.:19:06.

is that right? Think so. It is back for the second... For anyone who

:19:06.:19:11.

hasn't watched it, give us a rundown? It is about a couple

:19:12.:19:17.

called Becky and Steve who - it is a love story set in a bedsit where

:19:17.:19:22.

they never leave. It never leaves the confines of the flat. They are

:19:22.:19:26.

on benefits, they don't have jobs. They want to be with each other,

:19:26.:19:32.

love each other, and eat toast. toast! I never got the benefits bit,

:19:32.:19:38.

though. I assumed it was a Saturday or a Sunday. You are always

:19:38.:19:42.

hungover. They are not going out, ever! I thought it was set at the

:19:42.:19:46.

weekend. It must be tough to act in a confined place all the time with

:19:46.:19:51.

mainly the two of you? I suppose in a lot of shows there's lots going

:19:51.:19:57.

on, there's lots to act to. You have got each other? Yeah. Luckily,

:19:57.:20:04.

we get on very well. We do, yeah. That helps. You are in one space

:20:04.:20:11.

for eight weeks filming. We do go stir crazy sometimes so you have to

:20:11.:20:17.

go off set and jump around. must have a close relationship and

:20:17.:20:20.

almost understand what's coming next? I know it is scripted, but

:20:20.:20:24.

how someone is going to play something? Yeah. We are lucky that

:20:24.:20:28.

we do. It was quite an intense audition process. They worked

:20:28.:20:33.

through like loads of boys and girls, teamed them up together. The

:20:33.:20:38.

last auditions I had to snog five girls, you had to snog five boys

:20:38.:20:46.

and they picked the snog made in heaven. Was that tough?

:20:46.:20:50.

nightmare(!) You loved it! producered picked the scene where

:20:50.:20:56.

we snog. Shows what perverts work in television. Is it like doing a

:20:56.:21:02.

play, then? Yes. Monday morning we come in and we perform, we have

:21:02.:21:06.

rehearsed it and we perform the whole half-hour of the piece. We

:21:06.:21:10.

know all the lines so it is like a promenade theatre piece. It is like

:21:10.:21:14.

a play for today. Then we start shooting five minutes a day in

:21:14.:21:19.

sequence, five or six minutes a day, and we shoot in sequence each

:21:19.:21:26.

episode. Everyone gets asked this. It is more prevalent to your sitcom.

:21:26.:21:29.

Did you think from the moment you read the script that the show would

:21:29.:21:34.

be successful as it is now? It is so limited, isn't it? I loved the

:21:34.:21:37.

script when I read it. I hadn't read anything that was so truthful.

:21:38.:21:41.

It was such a great female character to play. We had no idea

:21:41.:21:44.

how people would take it. We didn't know whether they would find it

:21:44.:21:52.

funny, whether they would be repulsed by it. It works because

:21:52.:21:56.

the acting is so good in it. I don't think the programme would

:21:56.:21:59.

work if the acting wasn't as natural. You do believe that you

:21:59.:22:03.

are just two people at home. If it felt heavily-acted, it would be

:22:03.:22:07.

quite weird to watch. Yeah. That is the beauty of the writing. The

:22:07.:22:10.

writing is so good and the direction is so good that you do

:22:10.:22:20.
:22:20.:22:20.

believe this world exists. Yes. actors are all spot on. It is like

:22:20.:22:26.

the Royale Family. I don't know how much comedy acting you have done,

:22:26.:22:33.

is this a comedy role, this? It is written as a comedy. It is more

:22:33.:22:39.

like an observational comedy. It is more kind of just observing someone

:22:39.:22:48.

being naturally funny. Like life, in a relationship you laugh at the

:22:48.:22:52.

mundane aspects of each other. went to Cambridge, Sarah, and did

:22:52.:22:55.

the whole comedy thing. That was your kind of thing. For you,

:22:55.:23:00.

Russell, you have done a lot of other stuff? I got kicked out of

:23:00.:23:06.

college. What was the Cambridge Footlights - you were the Vice-

:23:06.:23:13.

President... Were you? Didn't you know that?! You would do something

:23:13.:23:18.

called a smoker, which is a show, so we started writing and

:23:18.:23:22.

performing every two weeks, which was a good practice. It was a great

:23:22.:23:29.

time. You were with Simon Bird and Joe Thomas Inbetweeners? Yeah.

:23:29.:23:34.

many people have come out of Cambridge over the years? Yeah.

:23:34.:23:40.

there rivalry between Oxford and Cambridge. Like the rowing? I don't

:23:40.:23:46.

remember being rivals. We used to do studenty shows, Durham, Oxford

:23:46.:23:52.

and Cambridge would do comedy nights. Everyone knows Cambridge

:23:52.:23:57.

Footlights is better! We can go through the names. There's too many

names. Oxford had Michael Palin, Al Murray, Katy Brand. You had Clive

:24:07.:24:14.

Anderson, Bill Oddie, Emma Thompson. So many! All these people, there is

:24:14.:24:19.

a tendency to think of Oxford or Cambridge as being elitist, and so

:24:19.:24:23.

many people came from comprehensive schools, so anyone who is thinking

:24:23.:24:29.

of applying to Oxbridge, you should do it. I was a bit thick at school!

:24:29.:24:37.

All I did was play football. The biggest amounts of tweets we have

:24:37.:24:43.

had in this morning - like this one, is Being Human doing another

:24:43.:24:49.

series? Yes, it is filming now. That will be out next year, early

:24:49.:24:53.

next year. You probably can't tell us anything about it, can you?

:24:53.:24:59.

Just a little bit? I play a werewolf! LAUGHTER When will they

:24:59.:25:03.

make that into a film? It has to be next. Put it out there. I don't

:25:03.:25:07.

know. I think it would be amazing if they did. Are people talking

:25:07.:25:13.

about that? You are. Let's build it up! Tweet it. What else is going on

:25:13.:25:18.

for the two of you? You do loads of other projects and you write, Sarah,

:25:18.:25:24.

as well? Yes. You know people for what they do and then you read

:25:24.:25:29.

about other things - writing - and you think wow, so many strings to

:25:29.:25:37.

your bow? I have a few projects in development. I'm about to start

:25:37.:25:42.

rehearsal for a play. Russell and Sarah will be staying with us to

:25:42.:25:46.

make dessert. Sarah will cast her eyes over ten of the best Christmas

:25:46.:25:52.

presents for women. You can't wait to see them(!) Keep tweeting

:25:52.:25:57.

questions for them - @SFTW or bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend.

:25:57.:26:00.

Time to glue your eyes to your screen and try to find a thing that

:26:00.:26:10.
:26:10.:26:21.

unites everything you see, the year # Bah-deng... #

:26:21.:26:28.

The Duke and Duchess of York are to separate. Lawyers have confirmed

:26:28.:26:37.

they have begun discussions about a formal separation. Ossie Ardiles

:26:37.:26:41.

has left his job as manager at Newcastle United. This is the only

:26:41.:26:47.

job I have ever wanted. Trams have returned to Manchester for the

:26:47.:26:53.

first time in more than 40 years. Many other towns are watching the

:26:53.:27:03.
:27:03.:27:23.

experiment closely. I never saw that film, did you see

:27:23.:27:33.
:27:33.:27:34.

it? No. But there was a football story in there. Kevin Keegan. Ossie

:27:34.:27:37.

Ardilis teams were brilliant. Keegan carried on with the

:27:37.:27:47.

attacking theme. Early '90s? '93. I really don't know. '92. How does

:27:47.:27:51.

Kevin Keegan rate as Liverpool legends in your mind? No. He

:27:51.:27:57.

doesn't. The weird thing about him, he was the first player who

:27:57.:28:02.

announced he wanted to leave the club. When he went to Hamburg in

:28:02.:28:08.

'77, when we won the European Cup for the first time, Keegan was

:28:08.:28:12.

fouled and Phil Neal scored the penalty, but all that season Keegan

:28:12.:28:18.

said he was going to go. At the time, no-one ever did that. So he

:28:18.:28:22.

had lost a little bit of... I think Keegan was brilliant. Loved him as

:28:22.:28:28.

a player, loved him as a manager. I have gone '92. You have gone '93.

:28:28.:28:34.

One of us will be correct. As always, time for your photos of our

:28:34.:28:39.

recipes. It's all been pumpkin and coconut loaf this week. Four lovely

:28:39.:28:44.

coconut loaf this week. Four lovely ladies here. Just a normal night

:28:44.:28:49.

there obviously! Tim, you appear on this one. You popped round to her

:28:49.:28:54.

house in Sheffield - she is a primary school teacher. She made

:28:54.:29:00.

you the salmon... They were fantastic. The house was a bit... I

:29:00.:29:05.

needed to open the windows. It was the salmon ticker! It was a good

:29:05.:29:12.

night? Yes. That was good. Then this is Joanne... It is quite good,

:29:12.:29:19.

though. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? We want more of those!

:29:19.:29:23.

Finally, we have Joanne from Leicester, again with the pumpkin

:29:23.:29:30.

and coconut loaf. Good work. So - there's loads more down there. If

:29:30.:29:38.

you are going to have a go at any of today's recipes, e-mail them at

:29:38.:29:43.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend or tweet @SFTW. Get Wayne in there

:29:43.:29:51.

having a cocktail. We are going to make this pie now. Everyone was

:29:51.:29:58.

mucking about this on Twitter last night. You have beef, venison, and

:29:58.:30:04.

oyster. Why not poached egg, cheese... Deep-fry it, too! That

:30:04.:30:14.
:30:14.:30:19.

together? Beef and oyster is an old-school combination. Oysters

:30:19.:30:25.

were always cheap and plentful. It is venison season. Beef and venison

:30:25.:30:30.

work well together. It is a twist on a traditional pie. We've oysters,

:30:30.:30:36.

beef, venison. Then a marinade of red wine, beef stock and stout.

:30:36.:30:43.

That will be lovely. We've garlic, bayleaves, tomato puree, onion,

:30:43.:30:49.

tomato, flour and thyme, and some pastry. Is this surf and turf?

:30:49.:30:57.

original suffer and turf. I like that, brilliant! Tip over that wine,

:30:57.:31:04.

stout and stock. Venison was the meal that got me knocked out of

:31:04.:31:09.

MasterChef. It is a tough thing to get right. I think I cooked it to

:31:09.:31:15.

prefection, I think you'll find. You can't overcook it, can you?

:31:15.:31:21.

it has so little fat. As soon as you overcook it, it's gone. In this

:31:21.:31:26.

you'll cook it long? It hoos to be cooked really fast or really slow.

:31:26.:31:31.

If you have a fillet of venison you want to cook it really quickly. You

:31:31.:31:36.

never want to cook a fillet of venison to being anything other

:31:36.:31:42.

than rare. There is so little fat it tightens and tightens an becomes

:31:42.:31:50.

horrible. Or do a really, long, slow cook. Amazing. Smells amazing.

:31:50.:31:54.

You marinade that overnight. The longer you marinade it, the longer

:31:54.:32:01.

the flavour will last and you tenderise the meat. We'll seal off

:32:01.:32:07.

the beef. We're sticking this in a pie. You could turn it into a

:32:07.:32:11.

casserole. You'd let this marinade overnight. If you fancy making this,

:32:11.:32:16.

make it for tomorrow. What you do is make this today, marinade it

:32:16.:32:20.

today and make the pie tomorrow. is a bit of a treat for Monday

:32:20.:32:26.

night. Monday night is usually left overs with mashed potatoes.

:32:26.:32:31.

world's changed, Tim. That's what I used to have to eat, horrible cold

:32:31.:32:39.

lamb and mashed potato. That's good. We need to return to those days.

:32:39.:32:45.

parents lived in the war and liked to pretend they were still in the

:32:45.:32:52.

war. Did you nought have eels? have a knees up! Is it the only

:32:52.:33:00.

night you didn't have a sing to give the vocal chords a rest? Being

:33:00.:33:05.

a family from Merseyside we'd sing every night. Or sing. Make peel

:33:05.:33:12.

laugh. Tell jokes. We had a microphone. Hone your skills. We

:33:12.:33:18.

always had double stand-up comedy on a Monday at school. Liverpool!

:33:18.:33:24.

We're sealing the meat off. We sprinkle a little flour on to there

:33:24.:33:29.

which is the base of our sauce. I'm isle sealing it off, slice the

:33:29.:33:36.

onion and garlic. Sliced or diced? We'll have slices in this. It is

:33:36.:33:41.

nice in a pie. You'd seal this off for a good few minutes until you

:33:41.:33:45.

have a nice bit of colour on all sides. Let's pretend that's

:33:45.:33:50.

happened, Tim. We tip that out. You can see all these nights bits of

:33:50.:33:54.

flour in there. We've some good flavour from the beef and venison.

:33:54.:34:02.

A touch another more isle in -- more oil in there. A butter in. We

:34:02.:34:08.

melt that down. All these lovely bits of flower -- flour become our

:34:08.:34:13.

sauce. With a wooden spoon work it in. Do you ever think you're

:34:13.:34:18.

turning into your parents? All the time. Where am I putting this? In

:34:18.:34:25.

there? Yeah. As a teenager you wanted to lie in. He'd open every

:34:25.:34:31.

single window in the house so it is freezing. I've started doing that

:34:31.:34:41.

in mine. "get out of bed". I've started pom -poming. What's that?

:34:41.:34:51.
:34:51.:34:51.

When you walk from room to room going, pom, pom, pom, pom skhraps

:34:51.:34:59.

Do you whistle? Not a proper whistle. A half whistle. Can't you

:34:59.:35:07.

whistle? I cack. My dad. Go on then! I have gofld, I must admit,

:35:07.:35:11.

checking raid eighters are hot, which my dad does all the time.

:35:11.:35:17.

Sorry, dad, this is a terrible character assassination. He's

:35:17.:35:22.

probably quite proud of it. Good work, son. Good work. Stp There's

:35:22.:35:27.

never been a problem with our heating system. I always do the

:35:27.:35:32.

slightly jaunty skip. I haven't done that! I did it at a party. I

:35:32.:35:38.

couldn't believe it. I was getting up to go to the loo. I did a little

:35:38.:35:45.

one of those. Your dad did that? Yeah. My dad's had more hip ops

:35:45.:35:55.
:35:55.:35:55.

than Dr Dre. My dad walks a bit like that. Like he's street!

:35:55.:36:01.

other thing I quite like as I get older, I like the fact, now I have

:36:01.:36:06.

a teenage daughter, my Flois 14, I remember my dad being really good

:36:06.:36:15.

at embarrassing us as a teenager. That's what you wait for. You do Go

:36:15.:36:20.

from that proud moment of having children... Have you done my lumps

:36:20.:36:25.

too big? That's good. They'll sweat down anyway. The flour will give us

:36:25.:36:33.

this bit of a roux. You do this, cook this out for six or seven

:36:33.:36:39.

minutes or so on a low heat so we caramelise the puree to get depth

:36:39.:36:49.
:36:49.:36:50.

of flavour in there. I love pom- poming. Great. Is that part of your

:36:50.:36:56.

stand-up routine? I have nick that had expression. I did think I might

:36:56.:37:03.

have nicked it from Sean from 6 Music. A bit of our marinade goes

:37:03.:37:12.

in. We don't waste the marinade on this. Normally you'd do with with

:37:12.:37:16.

flour, butter and milk. Same principle. Add a bit of the stock.

:37:16.:37:20.

Add a little more of our delicious stock. We keep blplg it up and

:37:20.:37:25.

building it up. -- building it up. You don't want to add loads of this,

:37:25.:37:30.

Tim. You'll have bits of lumps in there otherwise. We'll stir that as

:37:30.:37:34.

it comes together. It is fast. Because we cooked the flour out

:37:34.:37:38.

this will happen really, really quickly. All of that goes in. Add

:37:38.:37:43.

more and more. As it gets loser, you can add more. Reduce this.

:37:43.:37:49.

Bring it up to the boil. Let it cook out for 10-15 mins. It reduces

:37:49.:37:55.

to a thicker gravy. We then add the meat. You want to get some nice

:37:55.:37:59.

colour on there. All of the meat goes in. You cover this and cook it

:37:59.:38:04.

for a minimum of two hours. We want this to be soft and tender. It is a

:38:04.:38:11.

long process worth every single second. Is it a slow sizzle, type

:38:11.:38:18.

thing? What's the expression? Under-boiling? In the pressure

:38:18.:38:26.

cooker or the oven. Simmer, cha's what I was looking for! Thank you,

:38:26.:38:32.

Claire. In go the oysters. This's weird! Smell it. You get the

:38:32.:38:38.

delicious smell of the beef, venison and oysters.Ee, It's a bit

:38:38.:38:43.

weird, Simon. Yes, here we have our pie. With 30 seconds to go we spoon

:38:43.:38:51.

all of that into there. Slightly raw! Then, what we do, Tim, is,

:38:51.:38:59.

role this out. It is a proper pie which I love. Bit of flour on.

:38:59.:39:04.

There role it out to get it as big as that. Meanwhile, a bit of egg

:39:04.:39:14.
:39:14.:39:17.

wash. Oh dear! Pom, pom, pom! not started pom, poming yet. I'm

:39:17.:39:22.

still singing chart hits. These radiators are nowhere near hot

:39:22.:39:30.

enough, yet. I'll have to bleed them! Let's sit that on top of our

:39:30.:39:36.

pie. I haven't done it... That's do. We'll repair it. It'll hold

:39:36.:39:41.

together. Basically, a bit of flour on there and a quick press round

:39:41.:39:51.

like that. Right. I really do enjoy it when you're running out of time.

:39:51.:39:56.

We've run out of time. We didn't do that bit! When you cut round the

:39:56.:40:02.

edge, it's that. Make sure you're coming round. All yours. Let me do

:40:02.:40:12.

that. This is good. How long are we cooking this for? For about 25-30

:40:12.:40:17.

minutes. Until your pastry is crisp and golden. It will cook for a long

:40:17.:40:26.

time, this meat. Yeah, that's why it will be delicious. -- A lot of

:40:26.:40:32.

egg wash on there. So when it comes out... I'm excited about this. But

:40:32.:40:35.

slightly apprehensive about the oysters. Will the oysters be

:40:35.:40:40.

slightly slimy. I don't mind them after trying them on the show. I've

:40:40.:40:45.

had them since. They will all sit beautifully together. It will be

:40:45.:40:50.

slightly salty and fishy. The oysters always taste of vinegar and

:40:50.:40:54.

garlic. That's what you put in there. Look at that. Smell that now.

:40:54.:41:00.

You can smell a little bit of the sea. There it is. A lovely oyster

:41:00.:41:06.

to sit alongside like that. Glorious. With it, we serve

:41:06.:41:11.

traditional pie accompaniments. A little bit of mash. A little bit of

:41:11.:41:21.
:41:21.:41:23.

cabbage. It is almost a cocky knees-up up of a meal. Can I dive

:41:23.:41:30.

in there? Do you mind if I take the oyster? Please do. What, beef,

:41:30.:41:40.
:41:40.:41:41.

venison and oyster? Yeah. What a combow. Long slow cook. Nice, for

:41:41.:41:51.

breakfast? I don't eat venison. I quite fancy cabbage and mashed

:41:51.:41:58.

potato. That's good. He does stand up every night in his house. Roind

:41:59.:42:04.

the Rimmers. The oyster's amazing. You can leave it out if you don't

:42:04.:42:11.

like the idea of it. Wh what's for dessert? A really delicious strange

:42:11.:42:21.
:42:21.:42:21.

thing, pop-up cakes. Yum. That dessert recipe is on our website.

:42:21.:42:27.

Email questions to Russell or Sarah or Mark. Tom Hollander is back for

:42:27.:42:30.

a second series of award-winning vic-com and is planning to take

:42:30.:42:38.

some problem kids out for the day some problem kids out for the day

:42:38.:42:41.

to the seaside. This is Rev. Who's looking forward to our trip

:42:41.:42:49.

to Dover? Hands up? Hands up who's never been to the seaside before?

:42:49.:42:57.

Hand up who's seen a cow. Well, you can see some more on Saturday. And

:42:57.:43:03.

see if they lay eggs. We're going to see the White Cliffs. They have

:43:03.:43:10.

an incredible history. They're a natural wonder. Yes, Courtney.

:43:10.:43:17.

we go shopping there? No, it's a cliff. Is it outdoors? Yes, it it's

:43:17.:43:25.

out doors. I hate outdoors. I like inside like Bluewater. And it'll

:43:25.:43:33.

sting. It is like TV and games with military hitsry, if you're lucky. A

:43:33.:43:39.

lady is going to talk to you. not going on this trip. You can't

:43:39.:43:49.
:43:49.:43:52.

make me. Hello, children. My name You can congregate for Rev on

:43:52.:43:57.

Thursday at 9.00pm on BBC Two. guest now is a great friend of the

:43:57.:44:02.

show. A great peeler. He's in the middle of his 64-date stand-up

:44:02.:44:08.

comedy tour. He's performing in places picked by his fans online.

:44:08.:44:14.

Friends say I can never do a Welsh accent. If I do it, it comes out as

:44:14.:44:19.

Pakistani. They said, you should try to master it Ahmed! How are you

:44:19.:44:23.

doing way up there? Good. Odd seeing people in individual boxes

:44:24.:44:30.

like that. Like an Advent calendar! First time I heard that song Hotel

:44:31.:44:37.

California which goes on stpor ages and builds to a suss Spenceful end,

:44:37.:44:45.

you can check out any time you like but never leave. Strong policy, my

:44:45.:44:53.

sad -- dad said. Can I have a Pringle? I can't eat it. I'll

:44:53.:44:57.

crunch my way through. Nice to have it. Almost like a pet. I'll stick

:44:57.:45:01.

it in my jacket pocket. If there are points when things are not

:45:01.:45:11.
:45:11.:45:14.

going well this evening, I can That is from his Request Stops Tour.

:45:14.:45:24.
:45:24.:45:25.

Do your shows vary in length? I grabbed a Pringle, took it and

:45:25.:45:29.

spent 20 minutes talking about that. If you are coming to see me live,

:45:29.:45:34.

you shouldn't make any plans for days around it! Don't plan to get a

:45:34.:45:37.

train home. Certainly don't book travel in advance! There are times

:45:37.:45:42.

I have to lay on buses to take them home to their families. If you want

:45:42.:45:48.

to watch me, that is the commitment you have to make! You have to write

:45:48.:45:53.

off the rest of your life. I did your sports show - what was that

:45:53.:45:58.

one called? Mark Watson Kicks Off. It was soon crushed to death.

:45:58.:46:02.

was very good. It was all right. you were there live, it was quite

:46:02.:46:06.

good. It took three-and-a-half hours to film. You were having gags.

:46:06.:46:12.

It was funny. It might have been that - the filming budget eclipsed

:46:12.:46:18.

ITV4's budget for the year! Being an ex-producer, I would spend the

:46:18.:46:23.

whole time thinking how are they editing this into half an hour?

:46:23.:46:29.

the answer is they chopped it up and said, "That will do,

:46:29.:46:33.

hopefully!" The show never happened again after that. It was all right.

:46:33.:46:38.

It was brilliant. A bit of a nightmare to edit. I assume this

:46:38.:46:43.

isn't going out live. You are fine. You will still be on tomorrow

:46:43.:46:47.

morning. It will be if you ask me to peel something! We had footage

:46:47.:46:53.

of you peeling - we had you peeling on the show and it was a bizarre

:46:53.:46:57.

thing. My history of cooking on this show is checkered. It's not

:46:57.:47:03.

been the best. Your tour is called the Request Stops Tour. The general

:47:03.:47:07.

public, your audience, decided where you were going to go, how did

:47:08.:47:15.

that work? Every time I mentioned I'm doing tour dates, people would

:47:15.:47:23.

always say, "Why aren't you coming to Shrewsbury?" I started thinking

:47:23.:47:27.

if people are going to get upset, maybe I'll let them - it is like

:47:27.:47:31.

when you have kids, you choose your dinner then! You don't like the

:47:31.:47:35.

tour schedule, you write it! It's my bluff that's been called because

:47:35.:47:41.

I have to go to some unbelievable places. Do you go to all of them?

:47:41.:47:45.

Pretty much. A few I haven't been able to do because it was

:47:45.:47:51.

Afghanistan, or a war zone! Pretty much any - most of them I have...

:47:51.:47:55.

What about the size of venues? Are you playing different venues?

:47:56.:48:00.

of them are big theatres. I have taken on some that are village

:48:00.:48:05.

halls. I did one there was an amateur production of Oliver Twist

:48:06.:48:10.

when I got in there. I'm dog a couple where I'm not sure if they

:48:10.:48:16.

own a microphone. I went on one, the thing they got before me was

:48:16.:48:24.

like a Gardeners' Question Time thing. How are you plotting your

:48:25.:48:29.

way around the country? Someone's arranged it, but it's a sequence of

:48:29.:48:34.

a mad man's mind. It may as well be random. Do the audiences vary from

:48:34.:48:38.

each place, like if you are in one of the smaller village halls, it

:48:38.:48:44.

must be quite entertaining? They vary quite a lot, in more upmarket

:48:44.:48:50.

theatres, you have more of a comedy audience. There are places where

:48:50.:48:53.

people think, "I have never seen anything like this before." It

:48:53.:48:58.

makes it more fun. If you are in an odd venue, you spend half your time

:48:58.:49:08.

- I'm easily distracted. Having those audiences give you good

:49:08.:49:14.

leverage? Yes, you can see on my DVD performance, I still got into

:49:14.:49:19.

someone's private box. If I'm in a ramshackled venue, there is no

:49:19.:49:29.
:49:29.:49:30.

limit to the stuff I can do. Is the Request Stops Tour finished? It's

:49:30.:49:37.

finished, for now. For now - but I might be do another tour. You are

:49:37.:49:41.

still blogging every day? I'm still blogging every day. People are

:49:41.:49:46.

still requesting things but now I have to say, "We'll see what we can

:49:46.:49:51.

do next year." Do people still request their favourite jokes?

:49:51.:49:56.

Maybe they can choose what clothes I wear. Ultimately, I will be a

:49:56.:50:00.

robot. Shows you the power of blogging and being in touch with

:50:00.:50:05.

your audience. It does. It is amazing. Interactive. It never used

:50:05.:50:15.

to happen before. Did you say you were going to go - you have a live

:50:15.:50:23.

DVD out. Nice of you to mention that! Are you in competition...

:50:23.:50:26.

pure coincidence that I'm appearing on TV quite a lot at the moment. We

:50:26.:50:30.

tend to be in the same boat. there not any rivalry? In music, if

:50:31.:50:34.

you have a record out the same week, you are looking at where your

:50:34.:50:38.

record is, but you are looking at where that other person is thinking,

:50:38.:50:43.

"I hope I go in higher than them." There are times when you are in the

:50:43.:50:47.

dressing room with Russell Kane and you look at each other - one of us

:50:47.:50:53.

is going down! We would like to see that as - maybe a celebrity boxing

:50:53.:51:00.

thing. Yeah, it would be a no-score draw. It feels like lately there's

:51:00.:51:05.

been more and more stand-up comics. There's a lot of shows for

:51:05.:51:08.

comedians to go and show their work. It seems to be popular at the

:51:08.:51:13.

moment. It is a weird thing. It does mean comedy is getting cooler

:51:13.:51:16.

and more rock 'n' roll, which is the opposite of what it should be

:51:16.:51:22.

like in a way. It is strange. It is good. You were at Cambridge

:51:22.:51:27.

Footlights as well. Yes, I was. With a stand-up, it is not as cool

:51:27.:51:33.

to admit. I was in the ghetto for most of that time. Cambridge and

:51:33.:51:38.

the Oxford Review, most people become comedy actors. How many come

:51:38.:51:43.

out and become stand-ups? Not that many. There are a handful. There

:51:43.:51:48.

are far more people like Simon Bird - most of them do tend to -

:51:48.:51:51.

Cambridge Footlights is about sketches. When I became a stand-up,

:51:51.:51:56.

I never mentioned - my first paid gig that I did, this guy was this

:51:56.:52:00.

ancient Scottish guy, he took me aside and said, "You don't have to

:52:00.:52:06.

worry about all the idiots from Cambridge!" Yeah. It was a long

:52:06.:52:11.

evening. He drove me home and I spent the whole time thinking...

:52:11.:52:17.

Don't mention Cambridge. Do the Cambridge Footlight people go,

:52:17.:52:23.

"He's gone stand-up?" It is funny. I wasn't that involved in that

:52:23.:52:28.

either. It was mostly sketches. I rarely popped up. I was - I was in

:52:28.:52:32.

a Cambridge Footlights show where I had to play a character of death,

:52:32.:52:42.
:52:42.:52:42.

but as a Welshman. All right. Mark will be trying to cook a dish with

:52:42.:52:50.

Simon. Trying?! Tweet @SFTW or e- mail us via

:52:50.:52:54.

bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend. This is still what's to come on

:52:54.:52:59.

today's show: It's not brilliant being a musk ox

:53:27.:53:31.

Short. I thought you were joking. kitchen with us. They are going to

:53:31.:53:38.

be doing some cooking. Do you cook? I love cooking. I like to do

:53:38.:53:44.

Persian food. Curries, that kind of thing. That is exciting. We have

:53:44.:53:50.

had a long conversation. Russell, any good? Shocking. Terrible.

:53:50.:54:00.

a good eater. Who does all the cooking? Eat out, cereal, biscuits.

:54:00.:54:08.

It is a bit like Him And Her. eggs! I have to ask you. You are

:54:08.:54:13.

from Billericay. You are an Essex man. What do you think of The Only

:54:13.:54:20.

Way Is Essex? It is a great representation(!) I went to school

:54:20.:54:26.

in Brentwood. I used to hang out at the Sugar Hut for a bit. The two

:54:26.:54:32.

twins were in my class at school. don't watch it. They are great. I

:54:32.:54:42.
:54:42.:54:43.

love it. Who is your favourite? Arge and Lydia. Who is your

:54:43.:54:49.

favourite? I don't watch it either. What are we making? Pop-up cakes.

:54:49.:54:53.

This is a massive craze in the States. We make the sponge first of

:54:53.:55:01.

all. We have egg, milk, flour, baking powder, red food colouring,

:55:01.:55:07.

passion fruit. Butter, icing sugar, lavender, so that nice perfume in

:55:07.:55:11.

there. Then we have jam, raspberries and hundreds and

:55:11.:55:16.

thousands there. Sarah, cream together the butter and sugar. We

:55:16.:55:23.

make a simple sponge. Beautiful. Why do you think Essex is always

:55:23.:55:30.

such a high-profile county? I was talking to Sarah about that. It has

:55:30.:55:36.

a warmth about it. Everyone tends to be flashy. You are doing a good

:55:36.:55:41.

job. I'll crack some eggs in there. It is like our Hollywood, you know

:55:41.:55:48.

what I mean? You mean that as well! Yeah. What do you think, Sarah?

:55:48.:55:52.

are right. Thank you. It has a glamorous, open, very warm kind

:55:52.:56:00.

of... Are you from Essex? No! knows all about it! I think it's

:56:00.:56:04.

good that it is getting a good name. People have always been obsessed

:56:04.:56:11.

with Essex, back to the Essex girl jokes. Yet Kent is very similar.

:56:11.:56:17.

is not the same. Why? The people are similar. Isn't it? The

:56:17.:56:21.

countryside looks similar? I don't know why. There is something about

:56:21.:56:25.

Essex that captures people's imaginations. I suppose it is like

:56:25.:56:29.

the gangsters all moved out there after they made loads of money

:56:29.:56:34.

killing people. Then they brought big houses out there. You are

:56:34.:56:40.

selling it! You wonder whether the equivalent of Essex exists in every

:56:40.:56:46.

country. Every country has that area where there is... Is this

:56:46.:56:51.

beautifully mixed? Perfect. We have butter, sugar and food colouring.

:56:52.:56:58.

What we do next is chuck in the flour, we chuck in the milk, we

:56:58.:57:03.

chuck in our baking powder and start stirring that now. Now we

:57:03.:57:08.

have taken away the electric whisk so we have a more gentle mixing so

:57:08.:57:13.

we don't overwork it. Is there a difference using a metal spoon and

:57:14.:57:19.

a wooden spoon? What a fascinating question. It is. If you are doing

:57:19.:57:23.

it in a metal bowl, you shouldn't use a metal spoon. You know what...

:57:23.:57:29.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. OK. What we are looking for - that

:57:29.:57:35.

is a delicate batter. Russell, for you, we need you to scoop out some

:57:35.:57:39.

of the flesh from the passion fruits into there. Oh no! Into

:57:39.:57:43.

where? Into THERE! We have raspberrys in there as well. This

:57:43.:57:50.

is a nice cake mix on its own. This, as it stands, is quite beautiful.

:57:50.:57:57.

LAUGHTER Hang on. Forget that one. I'm going to help. Please help.

:57:57.:58:07.
:58:07.:58:09.

it back in there. LAUGHTER From the passion fruit bird! It smells

:58:09.:58:13.

lovely(!) Spoon all of that into there, Sarah. So we make a flat

:58:13.:58:18.

cake. That's fine, boys. You have done well. Have you put baking

:58:19.:58:28.

powder and bicarb in? We have both. She wants her own show! Would you

:58:28.:58:35.

like to do that? I would love to do a cooking show around the world and

:58:35.:58:43.

visit them in their kitchens. I have really thought about it!

:58:43.:58:49.

Preferably on prime-time BBC Two! Did you see that brilliant Keith

:58:49.:58:56.

Floyd thing where he was cooking for that French woman and he said,

:58:56.:59:03.

"Your food is rubbish!" Sarah made us a chocolate Brownie cake the

:59:03.:59:07.

other day. We went and got a roast dinner in town together and she had

:59:07.:59:13.

made a cake. When you took the cake to the restaurant... Are you

:59:13.:59:18.

genuine friends off telly? We have had a roast together. Simon and me

:59:18.:59:24.

are as well. We are REAL friends. You can't hide that, can you.

:59:24.:59:30.

to lick the spoon? No, I'm all right. Want to lick the spoon?

:59:30.:59:37.

Then we cook this... Can I eat it raw? Is that all right? LAUGHTER

:59:37.:59:41.

end up with this delicious cake. Wow! That was quick. Russell, we

:59:41.:59:47.

need to cut out loads of circles. These are our bizarre... Where do

:59:47.:59:52.

you get these from? A specialist cake supplier. If you haven't got

:59:52.:59:58.

these... You could improvise with a toilet roll! A baked bean tin and a

:59:58.:00:03.

stick! Russell, loads of circles from that. What we have done with

:00:03.:00:07.

our frosting, this has been butter, icing sugar, lavender, food

:00:07.:00:17.
:00:17.:00:20.

herbs in cocktails. I had a cocktail with Sage on it. Something

:00:20.:00:27.

with lavender. I had a cocktail and they put Sage on top of it. I had a

:00:27.:00:34.

pudding with strawberries and basil. With this lovely frosting... Do you

:00:34.:00:39.

think they are running out of ideas? Chefs? Let's stick venison

:00:39.:00:46.

with oysters! Don't know what you mean, Tim. Sarah, we put a piece of

:00:46.:00:54.

cake down there. Shall I keep going? Strawberry and mustard.

:00:54.:01:01.

reckon it would work. I don't like coriander. All you can taste is

:01:01.:01:07.

that in everything. Don't. I'm with you, there. I'm not allowed talk

:01:07.:01:15.

about it any more. I'm left-handed. So squirt? We want it straight down.

:01:15.:01:23.

You need to hold it slightly differently. Are you saying there's

:01:23.:01:28.

something wrong with my squirting? You want to have it between your

:01:28.:01:33.

thumb and forefinger. Then hold the bag like that. Wrap it round. We

:01:33.:01:41.

go... Like a teeth? Like that. See how beautiful that is. Oh, OK.

:01:41.:01:45.

Let's quickly make another one. So you can do a bit of squirting. Bit

:01:45.:01:55.
:01:55.:01:56.

of that. Bit of that. And then round we go! Yep! On the top as

:01:56.:02:02.

well. We wend up with these rather delightful cake pops like this.

:02:02.:02:08.

we put those on? We have a raspberry on the top. And we have

:02:08.:02:13.

hundreds and thousands. If you'd like to come round, Sarah and

:02:13.:02:20.

Russell. Basically you push them up and eat as you go with your spoon.

:02:20.:02:26.

One for you. Mark, how lovely to see you. You two, Simon.

:02:26.:02:35.

Thursday, it is my three-year-olds birthday. There may be a lot of E

:02:35.:02:45.
:02:45.:02:48.

numbers. What is Mark, making? cod Brad dad Wayne is mixing

:02:48.:02:51.

cocktails next. Now your ultimate opportunity to guess the year from

Palace confirmed lawyers acteding for the Duchess are in discussions

:03:16.:03:23.

about a formal separation. Ozzie are dill ace has left his job as

:03:23.:03:29.

manager of Newcastle United. He'll be succeeded by Kevin Keegan.

There's no job in football I've ever wanted. This is the only job

:03:35.:03:40.

I've wanted. Trams will return to Manchester in an attempt to ease

:03:40.:03:48.

day... # Do you hear that? That's the future of dance and no-one is

:03:55.:04:05.
:04:05.:04:21.

What year would SL2 have been on a ragga tip? I went 1992. Simon went

:04:21.:04:31.
:04:31.:04:33.

1919 3 -- 1993. I'll go 1994. Cocktails? South American. One

:04:34.:04:41.

based on cachaca. And a pisco punch. We haven't used pisco a lot. It is

:04:41.:04:51.
:04:51.:04:54.

a fabulous spirit from Chile. They grow a dundantly. The national

:04:54.:05:02.

spirit of Chile and Peru is pisco. It is really fresh. A lovely

:05:02.:05:08.

holiday drink. Is pisco spelt the same as disco? I've never heard of

:05:08.:05:17.

it. Normally, a traditional caipirinha is lime, sugar and

:05:17.:05:23.

cachaca. We've pink grape fruit wedges. Is that the only thing

:05:23.:05:29.

that's different. Making it Pinky. Yeah, and pomegranate liqueur. You

:05:29.:05:35.

need to use caster sugar. The sugar cuts into the peel. Like

:05:35.:05:39.

exfoliating. Some people use sugar exfoliating. Some people use sugar

:05:39.:05:45.

syrup. It cuts into the fruit. A lot more into the peel. Pink grape

:05:45.:05:53.

fruit, crushed down. Crushed ice. A ton of crushed ice in there. Add a

:05:53.:06:03.
:06:03.:06:04.

good slug of cachaca. This is a lovely holiday drink.

:06:04.:06:10.

pomegranate liqueur. Gives if a lovely colour. Give it is swizle.

:06:10.:06:16.

Mixed flavours together. Why not put this over ice and shake it up?

:06:16.:06:21.

You get too much dilution. Because you've crushed ice it holds the

:06:21.:06:25.

flavours. Crush is all together and capture the flavour with crushed

:06:25.:06:33.

ice. A slice of pink grape flute and -- grape fruit and pomegranate

:06:33.:06:38.

over the top. A pink caipirinha. Delicious and so simple. Somebody

:06:38.:06:43.

said to me the other day why do you say the cocktails are delicious.

:06:43.:06:49.

Because they are. Simple! There's not a lot to go wrong. I imagine

:06:49.:06:56.

this will taste delicious. I'm not sharing. It has grape fruit. It's

:06:57.:07:04.

really fresh, just really nice. beautiful. This one, a bit of

:07:04.:07:10.

wintry flavour. Cloves in there. And pineapple. It's a pisco punch.

:07:10.:07:19.

This was served from steam ships to Chile they would have a pisco punch.

:07:20.:07:27.

Can't say that when I'm drunk! Pisco punch! It has pineapple.

:07:27.:07:33.

Clove, lemon juice, orange juice, equal measures. Syrup sugar for

:07:33.:07:42.

sweetening. Then our pisco. Disco and pisco! We've our pineapple

:07:42.:07:52.
:07:52.:07:53.

liqueur. The pisco. I've started you off, haven't I, mate? And a

:07:53.:07:59.

nice splash of white wine. I love all of that, Wayne. What have you?

:07:59.:08:05.

Pineapple, cloves, pineapple liqueur, pisco and Chilean white

:08:05.:08:14.

wine. Some people use champagne but I like the wine.

:08:14.:08:23.

Lovely flavours will come out there. We sit leer like children waiting.

:08:23.:08:30.

This stuff's amazing. Spells delicious. What is it? It's brandy.

:08:30.:08:37.

Muscat grapes. Wine brandy. Muscat grapes. Really simple, lovely

:08:37.:08:42.

flavours. Delicate. It will become fashionable. Three pineapple laefs.

:08:42.:08:52.
:08:52.:08:52.

A lovely pisco punch. Can I have a straw, please. That's nice and

:08:52.:08:55.

fresh. Lovely south American flavours to get us in the mood for

:08:55.:09:00.

the cold weather. That's good as well. Really good. Pineapple and

:09:00.:09:05.

clove is a really good combination. Thanks Wayne those cocktails are on

.99. A great stocking filler. This is the Powerspin. You go. I can

:14:54.:15:01.

feel the burn already! Wow! Look. This is to get rid of bingo wings.

:15:01.:15:05.

Trim the arms. It also works the abs as well. You've done that

:15:05.:15:14.

before, haven't you? That's �19 .99. Careful to buy that for a lady who

:15:14.:15:19.

hasn't asked for it. It could be offensive. Especially if you put

:15:19.:15:29.
:15:29.:15:37.

bingo wings in the card. How much there's Ben on the Wii. It is not

:15:37.:15:41.

out yet. It will be released for Christmas. It is �40 for the Wii.

:15:41.:15:45.

Fun for all the family. This will work on Christmas Day. That is a

:15:46.:15:50.

good present! Ben's a better present. He is cut! Ripped! Look at

:15:50.:16:00.
:16:00.:16:01.

him go! LAUGHTER Not looking camp at all! What's this? This is the

:16:01.:16:05.

Clarisonic Poppy Mia. It's a facial cleansing system. You probably

:16:05.:16:09.

can't see them there. You put your facial cleanser on and move it over

:16:09.:16:15.

the face. It is twice as effective at getting rid of dirt from the

:16:15.:16:24.

face. That is all right. LAUGHTER Might be a bit bet. One of the

:16:24.:16:33.

girl's tested that. These are Merrimaking Animal Hoods. They are

:16:33.:16:40.

from �25. You can get them... You are looking good! You can get them

:16:40.:16:46.

made bespoke, so you can choose your lining. Which way?! LAUGHTER

:16:46.:16:50.

Just like that! Perhaps if you have not got a good looking partner you

:16:50.:16:55.

could ask them to wear it backwards?! Maybe not. You can have

:16:55.:17:02.

things stitched inside. This is our idea if you are on a budget, we

:17:02.:17:07.

have a selection of jars from �3.99 to �28. Fill them with your

:17:08.:17:11.

favourite things. They have a nice present on Christmas Day, made with

:17:11.:17:15.

a bow. They can use it in the kitchen afterwards. The last one?

:17:15.:17:20.

We have the Spineless Classics Poster. This is the largest one in

:17:20.:17:25.

the collection. It is �55.99 unframed. You can get a variety of

:17:25.:17:32.

the books that aren't quite as big. It is the whole Pride and Prejudice

:17:33.:17:39.

novel! Which one would you like for Christmas? I would go for the ABBA.

:17:40.:17:47.

You? I will get my Mum that! you going to stitchit? No!

:17:47.:17:52.

stitch it. For more information on any of those things, e-mail us via

:17:53.:17:59.

You will be back with men's next time. Yes. Thank you. If you like

:17:59.:18:06.

Extras, you will love the fact that Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant

:18:06.:18:12.

are back with Warwick Davies. Liam Neeson is trying to broaden his

:18:12.:18:15.

repertoire in Life's Too Short. Here is some of the stuff I would

:18:15.:18:21.

Here is some of the stuff I would like to work on. Improv, stand-up

:18:21.:18:30.

comedy. Sketches. Slapstick. Anecdotes. Yeah? Yeah. You notice

:18:30.:18:40.
:18:40.:18:40.

this list? I'm always making lists. In fact, that's probably why Steven

:18:40.:18:47.

Spielberg cast me. I said, "I make lists all the time." He said, "That

:18:47.:18:55.

is what I am looking for." LAUGHTER What's funny? I thought you were

:18:55.:19:05.
:19:05.:19:11.

joking. No, you need stuff to draw Thursday at 9.30pm on BBC Two. Mark

:19:11.:19:17.

Watson is joining myself and Simon in the kitchen. It makes cooking

:19:17.:19:24.

easier! Or you don't know what you are doing! What do you mean?!

:19:24.:19:28.

now people still talk about your very first appearance in our

:19:28.:19:33.

kitchen, Mark. It was the most tweets I have ever had! LAUGHTER

:19:33.:19:39.

Well, I failed to peel a potato. Both times I have cooked, it has

:19:39.:19:43.

been appalling. It has been interesting. You are massively

:19:43.:19:53.
:19:53.:19:58.

left-handed. Massively talented! course! The trouble is, a lot of

:19:58.:20:01.

left-handers... I seat sometimes, if that is what you mean. What are

:20:01.:20:09.

we going to be teaching Mark? will make a salt cod brandade.

:20:09.:20:16.

know the sort of thing. Salt cod that's been hydrated. You put it in

:20:16.:20:21.

water, change the water, and you soak it for 24 hours and it

:20:21.:20:27.

rehydrates. It is still salty. sure we have time to do that!

:20:27.:20:34.

on your tour. Then we have garlic, lemon, parsley, butter, celeriac,

:20:34.:20:38.

potatoes. We have milk here. We want to get rid more of the

:20:38.:20:43.

saltiness. We chuck in clove of garlic and then we have the zest of

:20:43.:20:49.

a lemon in there. What happens with the salt cod, it is made so that

:20:49.:20:54.

it's preserved. You go to Scandinavia. This is... Can you buy

:20:54.:21:00.

it? Yes. Like that. That is what you will buy. In a packet, though?

:21:00.:21:05.

Yes. It is well packaged. It is not just like that. You can get this

:21:05.:21:11.

everywhere? You can. Some supermarkets will sell it. It will

:21:11.:21:17.

be a sell-out. This is salt cod! Yes. Quite often you will be able

:21:17.:21:23.

to buy it in this form. So, what happens is we put the lemon zest,

:21:23.:21:27.

the garlic, the milk. As that comes up to the boil, turn the heat off,

:21:27.:21:30.

pop the fish in and let it sit there for 15 minutes and it will

:21:30.:21:39.

cook. We end up with that. Mark, finally, if... Do you need my help?

:21:39.:21:47.

Yes. I need you to spoon the potato into our ricer. Is that a masher?!

:21:47.:21:52.

You not got one of these? No. I would love one of those. Get Louise

:21:52.:21:57.

a masher. My mash is always lumpy. I can't seem to sort it out. I have

:21:57.:22:03.

that! We can solve this problem. Can I have that one after? You can.

:22:03.:22:10.

Press it through. We will press it through. Look at this! I can be

:22:10.:22:16.

manly with it! I'm sorry, we have some quite nice... Is this how you

:22:16.:22:20.

made your mash earlier? Yes. That was lovely. It is like a massive

:22:21.:22:24.

garlic press. So you press any lumps, it is lump-free. Should have

:22:24.:22:31.

been on the list. I have never seen one of them! Lou! Compared to our

:22:31.:22:36.

celeriac, we will have to do traditional mashing. That is tough.

:22:36.:22:40.

Because the celeriac is stringy, it is hard to put that through a

:22:40.:22:45.

masher. Mark, that is brilliant. bet you find you eat a lot of

:22:45.:22:54.

petrol station foodinging being on tour? Sometimes you have a chicken

:22:54.:23:00.

pasty! I'm tired of the word "broad r brilliant" in a kitchen but that

:23:00.:23:05.

is something -- I'm tired of the word "brilliant" in a kitchen, but

:23:05.:23:09.

that is something! Tip all the celeriac into there, together with

:23:09.:23:14.

all of this butter. All this goes in there? Or the other way. The

:23:14.:23:21.

combination of all of them is together. We add no salt to this

:23:21.:23:30.

and with the spoon start beating that together. Is this a popular

:23:30.:23:38.

dish? It's something that you will see quite often in... I'm beating

:23:38.:23:42.

it! Spanish restaurants do brandade as well. It is popular. It is be

:23:43.:23:46.

quite watery if you don't cook it with something. It can be so watery,

:23:46.:23:51.

but this will be beautiful. What we do with our cooked salt cod, half

:23:51.:23:56.

of it we will flake. We have all of our bones in here. I will leave you

:23:56.:24:04.

with the flaking task! I'm beating this! I will BEAT it! I tell you

:24:04.:24:09.

what, it will be sorry it ever met me. You need to fold it in a bit

:24:09.:24:17.

more. Yes, you might be right. You are always learning. Never stops.

:24:17.:24:23.

That is life. It is lovely. Now salt cod, half of it will sit on

:24:23.:24:31.

top. This other half, we shall chop so it is nice and fine. Mark, you

:24:31.:24:38.

keep beating! If it stops getting beaten I will be surprised. Let me

:24:38.:24:48.
:24:48.:24:49.

ask you about The Mad Bad Ad Show? It is a panel show meets The

:24:49.:24:57.

Apprentice. We have to do an advert for a product. Is it stand-up?

:24:57.:25:01.

Will you have to do more acting? Acting is putting it strongly. We

:25:01.:25:05.

get given a product that is unlikely - in the pilot I had to

:25:05.:25:11.

make a bra for men and Micky had to make lingerie for animals and we

:25:11.:25:18.

had to sell it. It will be quite good. Sounds good. It won't be

:25:18.:25:22.

quite as good as my DVD. You have done a fantastic job today. That is

:25:22.:25:28.

it. What we are looking for is this. It's a little bit sloppy. What?!

:25:28.:25:35.

a controlled way. You are a bit sloppy! You know I get aggressive

:25:35.:25:43.

in the kitchen! I know. This is the bit where it will get interesting.

:25:43.:25:48.

We want a bit of that on there and then you go like that, like that,

:25:48.:25:52.

like that. What you are doing is making these lovely shapes.

:25:52.:25:59.

will be good at this. Spoon under. Spoon under. Spoon under. Then we

:26:00.:26:07.

sit it on top of there. Over to you, Sir. Yeah! This is more like the

:26:07.:26:15.

Krypton Factor. A bit goes in there, we spoon under - not quite. I was

:26:15.:26:21.

going to ask you something... can ask me. Is it about when my DVD

:26:21.:26:27.

comes out? We spoon under, we spoon under, we spoon under... LAUGHTER

:26:27.:26:37.
:26:37.:26:44.

It's kind of... Who is eating this!? This is mine. That's all

:26:44.:26:50.

right. You want that? Yes. I need one more of those. I will spoon

:26:50.:26:56.

under a bit more. We garnish this... OK. As Simon and Mark finish

:26:56.:26:59.

OK. As Simon and Mark finish spooning under, over to Tim. Thank

:26:59.:27:05.

you very much. The Deja View year where Kevin Keegan went back to

:27:05.:27:10.

Newcastle and this song charted at number two was 1992. That was the

:27:10.:27:19.

year. I got it right! Got loads of tweets in here. Every time the

:27:19.:27:23.

music comes on you two keep dancing! Is Russell a good kisser?

:27:23.:27:28.

Well, I make it a point never to kiss-and-tell. He is in my top

:27:28.:27:37.

five! LAUGHTER You have kissed a lot of boys then! Emma82. Is your

:27:37.:27:42.

dress vintage? It is. It is from a great vintage shop called Paper

:27:42.:27:48.

Dress. It is beautiful. No-one else can get them? Hannah has loads of

:27:48.:27:53.

lovely things. How old is it? from the '70s. It smells like it is

:27:53.:28:03.
:28:03.:28:04.

from t' 70s! LAUGHTER Are you going to try that? The food? I spooned

:28:04.:28:08.

under. I don't like to start before everyone else! Please. I like the

:28:08.:28:13.

look of yours. Come on! When you have made it yourself, it is not as

:28:13.:28:20.

nice. LAUGHTER I will try this. And quickly, James, for you Russell,

:28:20.:28:27.

when are you going to do another play? In the New Year. Possibly in

:28:27.:28:34.

the West End. In February time. 2012. Yours starts in January?

:28:34.:28:39.

Rehearsing soon? Yes. OK. Brilliant. Now, we have run out of time.

:28:39.:28:44.

Massive thanks to Russell and Sarah and to Mark of course. Tune in next
