Good morning. Welcome to the show. It's 10.00am on Sunday, the 14th of
August. Simon, Amanda and myself are joined in the studio by one of
Britain's shrewdest businesswomen and a dragon to boot, Deborah.
Mercury Prize nominee and music sensation Katy B. They'll be here
for some cocktails and a look at next week's telly. This is
Something For the Weekend. Good morning. Welcome to Something For
the Weekend. I have just gotten back from my holibobs. You were...
Camping. It was a fantastic holiday. I thought you would have gone
glamping. Barbara Windsor wasn't there. She might have been actually.
I thought I saw her in the choos. Were you chasing after her -
# Duh duh duh # That best Carry On scene... Is it
going to happen in Babs like that. Where were you? Dorset, swimming in
the sea. Isn't that a bit cold? It's all right. It's summer.
Really? It was brilliant. I loved it - a bit of cloud, a bit of rain,
a bit of sun, fantastic. I loved it. Were you glowing, Tim? Really good
fun. I can't recommend camping enough. Did the girls like it?
loved it. That must be the danger. When we were away, "Oh, it's a bit
cold." I know, we get a bit Mony. "Do some star jumps!" Do the
Barbara Windsor thing. We have an interesting little clip here
because we love the forces here on the show. We have some - did you
see this? Because I was away this week. I have seen it. I didn't know
all the riots were going on, and I didn't have any communication. I am
strange. I am addicted to 24-hour news. It was strange having things
drip fed to me. I would go out to the car. Did you not go to the
toilet? Yeah, I did go to the toilet, but there is no TVs. What?
He didn't take a break, 24-hour news. Keep with it, Simon. This is
apparently in the papers last week, that these lads were part of the
Seven finks Commando. Easy for you to say. These are the lads in the
Army doing Glee. Really funny. # Anything but roll the dice
# Strangers waiting # Up and down the boulevard
# They're shadows # Searching in the night
# Duh duh # Don't stop believing!
# Hold on to that feeling # Streetlights #
LAUGHTER Good bods there, aren't they? Good
bods on the lad. I love that. is not a single body hair on that
don't tell me the forces are like our footballers - they're not
taking hair strairtners out there and shaving their chests? I think
if you enrol, you have to have no body hair. Because you run faster.
Be like Beckham! We need our forces to be manly, don't we? You work
your chest, don't you? Needless to say - that would absolutely kill me
to do that. I have a hairy old chest. Now, let me tell you what
guests we have on here. Following her album success, Katy B, the girl
from Peckham with her brand of dance music, is here to talk about
festivals, fame, and the possibility of winning the Mercury
Music Prize. Very prestigious. And here to tell us about her life as a
celebrity businesswoman is Deborah Meaden. Definitely not here to roar.
Do dragons roar? They breathe fire. Spew. And the new one - Hillary - I
like her. Good shoulder pads. shoulder pads! Brilliant. I have
two ideas to pitch to Deborah. Are you going to ask for them on air?
tell you what, we're going to be millionaires, all of us. Do you
want in? Yeah. Please. We'll take over the world. Do you know what's
sad? I have known you for five years, and you and I when we go out
constantly have this discussion of the great business ideas we have.
Funnily enough we haven't done any of them. You wait until you hear my
ideas. You'll love them. This is from Debra, "A device that's built
into your car so when you can't find it in the car park, you shout
its name. It shouts back, 'I'm over here.'" the problem is we all know
what we think about people who name their cars - losers. Do you name
your car? I don't have a car. do you get around? I take the tube,
and I take the bus. I do. Right. You - you're a driver, Simon. Now -
I'm environmentally friendly. you drive, though? Yes. You don't
have a car? No. I don't make as much money as you, Tim. You wait!
Yes! Then you can buy as many cars as you like. This is an idea for
Deborah, "Shoes with heated soles so you don't slip on ice." You
would have to walk really slowly. Your feet would be really sweaty -
horrible. Get your pitches in to Deborah, also, anything about
business - she's great with talking about things like the recession.
Get your views in on those. She'll answer anything. Get it in. Katy B
is here as well, so if you have Please remember to tell us your
name. What are we cooking today? Today it was starting with beetroot
pancakes with king prawn - nice. Look at that. That looks really
yummy! What's the herb you've got on there? A bit of dill. Beetroot,
dill, prawns all works together. The main course - one of the things
we featured before is rose veal, which is very much coming into
prominence in Britain. Everyone goes - oh, veal! But the way the
animals are treated is very humane. We should eat more because it
actually uses the beef cashes more so than they would be destroyed -
carbs. Dessert is plum and ginger trifle. I haven't had that for
years. Proper old school - delicious. Do you have those
sprinkly thingys? You can't have trifle without the hundreds and
thousands. I used to go to the supermarket, take it, eat it all
the way around, then put it back at the end. What? When I was a kid!
You're the reason the country is in the state it is in. I think I
should make a citizens' arrest. It's gone past seven years. You
can't. Really? No, I just made it up. It's in Ireland. An Irish law.
A non-car-driving criminal. That's me. Finally, courgette fritters
with bloody mary tomatoes - courgette, sweet corn, a bit of
carrot in there, then vodka, horseradish and tomatoes, delicious.
All our recipes can be found on our website, bbc.co.uk/Something For
the Weekend. Here is what else is happening on today's jam-packed
show. We're going deep into the world of ocean giants. It's like
jumping into six lanes of traffic! Elija Wood meets Will Friday.
any DVDs? It's all going Harry Potter in Who Do You Think You Are.
He's certainly risen in his profession. Some top TV to
fleerkward to and hopefully top cocktails. Wayne? We have savoury
drinks if you have that kind of palate. We have a twist on the
brunch drink bloody mary called a canary mary. You do like to rhyme
things, don't you? Using what? Yellow tomato juice. Is that unripe
tomato juice? Golden tomatoes. have not had a yellow tomato.
You're missing out. Can I have one on standby? Thanks, Wayne. Let's do
some cooking - beetroot. The big effect of the riots is Wayne and I
were supposed to go out Monday night, and the gig he was doing in
Manchester got cancelled. Come up and see you anyway? So we didn't go
out, no. Gutted. We're doing... was away with the riot - were the
riots everywhere in the country? They hit hot spots. Manchester,
Birmingham, London, obviously, a bit of Liverpool, a bit in Bristol.
They didn't hit Scotland and Wales? It's an Irish riot. It's done,
though, completely. We hope. We're going to do beetroot pancakes with
king prawn. So for our pancakes we have butter, bacon powder, lemon,
egg, raw beetroot, some milk and also some flour, then we have
prawns, lime, paprika, dill and butter. Amanda... Yes, Simon Rimmer,
to be sure. Stick the baking powder into there. I have got - where are
our gloves? Hold on a second. Before we start gracing the
beetroot we have to get the plastic - unless you're not... I am not
bothered. Grate some beetroot into there. Then Tim, in the meantime,
you can - milk, butter and egg into there. Whisk that together. Get a
little bit of lemon zest. Whisk it until it comes together. It doesn't
need to be fluffy or anything. a bit splashy, the old beetroot,
isn't it? It is the greatest ingredient, though. I juice
beetroots and drink the juice. anything? It tastes of earth.
tastes of beetroot, actually. I mix it with carrot, cellry and a
bit of apple juice. That's all right. I ain't no diva.
When I was out camping all we had was barbecue facilities or cook on
an open fire. Yeah. I love that, though. So I produced - I sent
pictures to you, didn't I, because I was proud of myself. Because
you're in a camp site doesn't mean you have to just eat rubbish. I had
Chinese marinated steaks and sauteed cabbage. So it was glamping.
No, that's what I made. He sent me pictures. It was brilliant.
sends you pictures of everything he cooks? When he's proud of it, yeah.
I go, "Look what I am doing on the barbecue," sauteed cabbage. I went
into a supermarket and thought - because I like eating vegetables,
and I can't eat too much continual meat, bread and potatoes. I thought,
I am there for a week. What can I do? Sauteed cabbage. When I turned
up to do it, everyone was just sniggering at me, "What the hell
are you doing?" But everyone liked it! Everyone liked it. It's all
about education. Amanda or doesn't matter who really - little by
little - you probably need two- thirds... We do wet to dry?
into dry. And a little - whisk it together so it starts to get gloopy.
You want this to be smooth. This is the danger now, obviously, and
because we have bits of beetroot in it is making sure - make sure you
get the side bits in. Do we have enough beetroot in there? You can
never have too much. You can have much, much moor. Look at the pink.
Look at the colour. It's beautiful. So pretty, Simon. Nice, isn't it?
That's why beetroot is so great, not only does it taste nice -
beetroot is good in risotto. Had cod with roasted beetroot and a
salad. You're so proud of yourself, aren't you? Hang on. Considering I
used to eat frozen food for years. Everything I had came in... Was it
when you started on this show? For the first year of doing this
show, I was just not interested at all. Well, that's not helpful on a
cookery show, is it? But I started thinking after awhile, you know
what? Some of this food is quite good. Now I think it's just easier
just to make everything. It's all about practise, isn't it? Simon is
- I still don't do loads of sauces and things. Did you say the food is
quite good? I don't know what I said. I think you said Simon's food
on the show is quite good. His food is great. That's better. We have
cooked together in his house! getting a little bit concerned
about you boys. "Honey, look what I cooked!" It was good. This is the
way to do it - get a full spoonful. As it goes in, tip it up like that.
That's how we'll get nice circles. Oh, it's me. Yeah, go for it.
You're now on those duties. Tim, here, what you're going to do now -
we need you to chop some garlic, zest, a little bit of lime, and
we're going to fry off the prawn. That'll probably do you. It's going
to be weird because it means we're going to have an even number on the
plate, but - which always makes you feel a little bit weird. Shall I go
really like even numbers. It was weird, because when Amanda Hart net
was on here, she produced four on a pleat. Angela, sorry. You've got me
on the brain. She always put things into threes. Is it a chef thing?
it's just me. I think three balances a bit better. It's the
magic number. On television everything is in three. It's my
lucky numbers. Tim, so we have... A bit of butter. The garlic can go in
there. Amanda, hopefully now... I need to flip these? No. Get the
spatula and flip. Where am I zesting it, into the pot? Straight
into there, with the juice as well. Meanwhile we chuck in our prawns.
I'm not doing very well, Simon. Hang on a second. Nice work. Five.
Lovely. We also add a bit of paprika. From a flavour point of
view, talking about the balance of flavours, we've got the earthy
flavour of the beetroot and now we've got the garlic and paprika.
It is quite nice everyone being around the stove. I think there are
too many chefs in the kitchen. Or maybe it is many hands make light
work. Or too many chefs spoil the broth. Tim, put some dill into
there. We are on fire this morning. Those are pretty much done. If you
don't like beetroot you can leave it out. We are making a savoury
American-style pancake, a breakfast pancake. You can add chilli. Is it
goes into the pan? Yes. There is our stack of amorphous-shaped
pancakes. Our mix is slightly on the thin side. It works. But if you
get to the that point it is like, that sift a bit of flour on the top.
If you tip that in, it might be a lit lumpy but in a sieve you can
add it lightly. It is exactly the same colour as your top. I co-
ordinate all my food with my outfits during the week.
Tim, Those are big prawns. And then we have a stack of our beetroot
pancakes. And then our prawns. Loads of garlic, deliberately.
We've got a big contrast of flavour. Lots of garlic, lots of prawns. And
the dill gives it that bit of freshness, which works beautifully
with the beetroot. The beetroot gives us our earthiness. We spoon
over this delicious garlicky butter. A touch of sour cream on the top
just to give us some acidity. are dying to get the dill on.
dressing. Beautiful. Amazing. you go. So it is really gar licky,
Simon, is it? I think these boot root pancakes, I would happily eat
those on their own or with bacon if it is for a breaky thing. Loads of
garlic. Paprika works well in it. Dill, lime. Pancakes. Absolutely
stunning. What are we making for main course? Rose veal with a
Romesco sauce: absolutely delicious. You can get all of the recipes on
our website - bbc.co.uk/somethingfortheweekend.
Very good. This is so fascinating, this show - not this show, the one
we are about to show. This one is quite good. This is just mildly
entertaining. LAUGHTER Sometimes. No more Hobbits for Elijah Wood. He
play as failed lawyer who strikes up on unusual relationship when he
meets his next door neighbour's dog, I know we've just met but I'm
totally desperate. The exterminator is on his way and I didn't make
arrangements for my dog. He said he was going to kill them. Sit OK if
he stays in your yard until I get back from work? Huh? It's OK.
Wilfred, come here boy. You like dogs? Yes. Great. Here's a few of
his toys and snacks. Be a good boy. Very nice. Some sofas it's
impossible to get comfortable. Not this one. Ryan is it? Yeah. Got any
DVDs? A few. I like Matt Damon. he's good.
It's my sister. Just pretend I'm not here.
You can follow the first episode of Wilfred, which is a bit mental, on
Tuesday at 10.30pm on BBC Three. want one of those dog suits.
want a dog suit? So much fun you could have with that. Each to their
own. Since last August our first guest has been on a mission to
storm the charts with her dubstep sound. Three European hits and a
tour and a Mercury Prize nomination under her belt, she looks set to do
just that. # I keep on moving with the lights

Something for the Weekend Katy B! It's been a whirlwind of a year for
you hasn't it? Yes. Straight out of uni. Yeah, the Katy On A Mission
video I did at uni, at the end. So at least I wasn't unemployed.
you wrote it while in uni, not taking attention to your studies?
Yeah, basically. Kind of. I was at uni and I was writing an album at
the same time. It took a time, I was three years there. It took a
while. I wish I went to uni later in life so I could have proper
focused on it. When you say uni, I don't mean business studies, you
studied pop, flight Yes, everything that comes under that umbrella,
from folk to blues to, you know, song writing. Country and western.
You can mix and match. They had a classical course as well. What did
you stphrern But learn -- what did you learn? Pop music, there's a
reason for it. All the social aspects of it of how genres are
create, from punk to hip-hop. There's reasons for them starting.
A lot of my tutors have written books on it. Did you come out with
a degree in popular music? I did more of the practical side. I tried
to avoid writing essays. So there's a practical side to the course as
well,? Definitely. The choir was amazing. There was a singer called
Esther. She is amazing. She is incredible. She was the choir
teacher there. That was probably the best thing I got from going to
uni. It is not the only school you went to, is it new went to this
apparently famous BRIT School. There's only a couple of people
who've come out of that famous aren't there - aderblgs Jesse, just
a couple. -- Adele, Jesse, just a couple! What's going on? There is
lots of different aspects to the school. There's dance, theatre,
design, radio, media. I guess if someone is studying music and they
want to go into the music industry, there is probably a chance they are
going to do that. Whenever anyone is interviewed and they went to the
BRIT School, they say it is like a normal school but we do other
lessons. Is it like a normal school? I wept there when I was 14.
Di my GCSEs there. I guess it was like my other school. I enjoyed my
secondary school, but you went out at lunch time. A lot more freedom
there. You still did normal lesson there is. -- lessons there. When it
was full-time music, I loved it. And Adele and Jesse J were there
with you? They were a year above. What about the success rate at your
school? There must be loads in your year who haven't made it. In my
class there wasn't all just female singers. My bass player in the band,
he went to the BRIT. Not everyone wants to be a recording artist.
They go into song writing or production or do something
completely different really. got a record deal pretty swiftly, a
year after leaving university, you released an album. That's pretty
swift. I had my first sort of is 12 inch vinyl out when I was 17. I'm
22 now. That was five years ago. you are so old! I'm getting old now.
It wasn't an overnight thing. Making the album was definitely, on
a mission, it took nearly three- and-a-half years to make it.
your first 12 inch any good? have to do a bit of research.
dig it out and have a listen. Your new single a Witches Brew.
# Come see what I got for you # All the others can be
misunderstood # Come with me
# I will make you feel so good # Come with me
# I will make you feel so good # Oh, oh, oh, oh
# I need tow feel it too # All the others will be
misunderstood # Come with me I will make you feel
so good # Come with me I will make you feel
so good # . That's a little bit scary. What's
the idea behind the video? I guess, my whole album is quite real. I
guess it's from while I as at uni partying there were all different
situations. I think Witches Brew was the one song on it which was pa
bit of a fant S it is still about really liking someone and them not
liking them back and you wishing cue put a spell on them to make you
theirs or whatever. It is definitely more of a fantasy tune,
so I wanted the video to be more like... I don't know. The video at
the end, I felt like I was on the set of Thriller. Your album's
nominated for a Mercury Prize, which I think is the most
prestigious of the awards. It is great isn't it? A lot of great
bands in it this year. You all have to play live in front of each other.
Are you nervous about this or excited? I'm definitely excited.
I'm just happy to be nominated. It is great it is an award for the
album. In this day and age when you can go on iTunes and buy individual
tracks and everything, I guess to recognise the album in its entirety
is a nice thing. Especially as you are so new. If you don't win, who
do you want to win? I remember saying on the day I wanted a girl
to win because there had only been three girls that had won it so far.
I'm rooting for the girls. I went on tour with Tinie Tempah. He's
great. I think James Blake will win it, if it is not you. Do you want
to put bets on? He was in my class at uni. Was he! He went to
goldsmith's. What happened to bands coming from pubs and stuff. I did
Are you going on tour? When are you off? I am going on tour in October-
November, so I'll be all over the country. Festivals left, right and
centre as well - you're a busy little girl. It feels like I have
been to every festival, but it has been amazing, brilliant. Katy will
be with us to run our eye over some gadgets and to cook a pudding with
myself and Simon, so if you want to ask her or our Dragon Deborah a
question, e-mail us or Tweet us. Please remember to send in your
name. OK. This one is going to sort out the men from the boys - do we
say "the girls from the women?" We don't. We should. This one is going
to sort out the girls from the women. We're going to give you a
song, some headlines and a classic TV show. All you have to do is give
us the year they all have in common. Good luck with that one.
# Huh, huh, huh, huh, huh # I know this much is true
The new law on the wearing of seat belts came into effect a month ago.
All the signs are it's brought a dramatic reduction in deaths and
serious injuries. The BBC's Breakfasttime, Europe's first
regular breakfast TV service received more than 1500 calls of
congratulations within an hour of going on air for the first time
this morning. The compact disk player is in the shops today. It
works with a laser beam, and it will cost at least �450, but the
experts reckon it's a "sound" investment.
# I bought a ticket to the world # But now I've come back again #
James, where did you get this Get up to your room. Get ready for
bed. Go on. Now! Right. Any of those headlines, memories, ring a
bell? '85. I think it's earlier than that. It's '85. You reckon?
Absolutely - no idea - absolutely '85. It's I'm going '82. '82 I am
going. I was trying to think of the Spandau Ballet clothes - True. In
the end of the night we had slowys at the end of the night in a club.
Yeah. We should reintroduce you. Once you got a girl, you kept hold
of her because it was so hard to actually go to telephones and phone
people. It was embarrassing. There was no texting, cheating -
communication with a girl, "Hello." Equally at the end of the week you
would go around drinking - that's me off. Friday night sport. Time
now for your versions of our dishes starting with the Netherlands, the
sisters who made the lemon and pistachio cake. This is Chris
Mottram from Solihull with his dog Roxie, stuffed courgettes from his
own garden and he served them with homemade blackberry yogurt and
honey. Nice swirl. Do you know how to do one of those? With a smoon.
Shall we try them it? Fine. Clearly big Man City fans. We have Naomi,
Colin, Ben and Amanda from left to right, and they made the coconut
chicken curry. Swansea today for them. No, Monday, Monday night.
Finally, a couple of forces guys - it'ss forces themed - Private
McKelvey and Lance Corporal Burton out in Afghanistan, great, love
these pictures. Come on, the forces!
If you're going to send us in pictures if you're in the forces,
tell us what you're cooking with and tell us all about what foods
you're eating out there. Also, I'm competing again against Army chefs
the 29th of September in Santo, so Army chefs, I need tips with what
to do with the rash pack stuff e- mail us or Tweet us to get yourself
on the fridge. So what are we making now? We're doing rose veal
with a Romesco sauce. We can't be eating veal! Ingredients first -
butter, garlic, the sauce, tomatoes we have charred over the flames so
the skinned fall away, British rapeseed oil, some peppers we have
roasted and peeled, a relatively smiled chilli pepper, lots of
garlic, macadamia nuts and hazel nuts. Macadamia is supposed to be
the King of nuts - always expensive, but always delicious, quality every
time. Then with it a warm potato salad, British potatoes, parsley,
butter and a bit of white wine vinegar. We have some breadcrumbs,
egg and flour. Here is the fella himself, a lovely piece of rose
veal. Veal is one of those things - it's a very contentious issue we
have always shied away from it. British rose veal is a humane
product. It's recommended by the British Meat Council as a really
good product to eat. Basically, what happens is if you have beef
carves, the vast majority - to be honest, the minute they're born,
they're destroyed. What we have now with rose veal is they're kept for
six months, the same as you get for a lamb or a pig, kept in humane
conditions. They're allowed to move around. This is completely
different. What you get is a beautiful tender cut of meat and
it's humane. It's say. You get it in lots of supermarkets now, and
it's recommended eating. OK. First things first, what we're going to
do is batter this out. On to there - bash it out - not with the
knobbly bit, but the flat bit. No, not the knobbly bit. I looked at
that and went - oh! Oh, dear. again, you know exactly what to do.
It's making sure it's a nice, even bashing out. How thin do you want
it? You want it to come out so it's quite thin, really. You want to
cook this relatively quickly. good start to the football season
for your boys? You know, yesterday, when it was halftime and Liverpool
were beating Sunderland 1-0, I thought, this is exciting. Then we
fell away in the second half, but I thought we looked exciting. Did you
see us on Match of the Day? I did. I think Kenny Dalglish - I would
like Liverpool to do well because I like Kenny and Steve Clark. They're
playing good football now. I think they'll get there. It was quite
exciting. It was tough being a Chelsea fan because we don't play
until today, so I had to sit there yesterday watching all you lot play.
It's shame the first day of the season isn't like the last day of
the season when everyone play at the same time. So everybody plays
at 3.00pm... Yeah, we should do. we all get involved in it. You have
Stoke today, haven't you? Stoke. am good friends with young Timmy.
wouldn't speak to him tonight. He'll be a very disappointed man.
Do you think? I reckon we'll have won the League by the end of
January. Predicting - I know you don't like predicting - you at home
or away? Away, 6-0 to us. I am getting carried away - 5-0. Oil,
butter, potatoes in the pan. We're going to Chriss those up. Now,
we've got the veal beautifully battened out. Is that what we're
looking for? Perfect. Then we go into the flour, pat it off, into
the breadcrumbs, a little bit of salt on there as well. Did we not
season the flour? The flour is already seasoned. We're double
seasoning? Yeah. There we go. Pat the excess off there. Into the egg.
Are we only making one of these? Yeah. It's just going to be
beautiful because we're going to cook it in realtime. The joy of
this, of course, is it's a really simple, fast thing to do. You don't
have to batten it out. You could cook it as a lovely cut of meat. A
warm pan, not too hot, because you don't want to burn the breadcrumbs.
Lovely, and we cook away. So the potatos are cooking away
beautifully. I have chopped a bit of parsley. Once these have a
little bit more colour on them we're going to add in some white
wine vinegar. Are these - these are not boiled or anything? Yeah, yeah,
they're cooked. Cooked and fried in wine and parsley? Wine and parsley
and vinegar - oil, butter, potatoes, white wine vinegar. So we get that
acidity. Romesco sauce is a beautiful sauce, a sauce
traditionally always associated with seafood, but you can do it
with anything, and I think it works well with strong-flavoured meats.
It is a Catlin dish. All you do for it is the tomatoes we have chard,
take off the skins, the peppers we have charred, take off the skins
from that, then you fry a little bit of chilli, but it needs to be
mild. It shouldn't be spicy, spicy. It should be a warm spice, so it's
a builder rather than one of those that goes, raa! It shouldn't be
fiery. We toast off those ingredients. We could use olive oil,
but I don't want that big flavour. It doesn't smell of anything.
doesn't. It was always said rapeseed oil is going to be our
version of olive oil. I don't think that's true in the slightest. I
just think it's a good, quality oil and works in its own right. I am
just going to drain off this butter into there. This is a classic
combination of potatoes and meat, and then we flip over that little
bit of veal like that - beautiful. Do you have to cook veal through
or... No. It can be pink. A little bit of butter goes into there now -
only got it on one side. I am trying to taste this. Maybe I'll do
it this way. There you go. I'll taste it. You decide what you think
it tastes like. Tastes like car oil - no, it doesn't. It doesn't taste
of anything. No. It's got slightly more after-taste than a veg oil.
There is a little bit of pepperiness just at the end. No?
You not getting that? Not really. OK. In goes the parsley with the
vinegar, so that's delicious, OK? Now our Romesco sauce... Sorry. I
didn't listen to the answer about cooking this through. Do you have
to cook this through? No, it can be rare. All of this we roast together,
puree it, then we end up with this absolutely delicious sauce. You
have a little taste of this on its own, and it's glorious. You'll see
it's got a little bit of warmth in it but not tonnes. That's delicious.
Shall we do a smudge? Let's do it. What we need to do is get a little
bit of sauce on the spoon. Stand the spoon upright with the sauce on.
I am not going to do that now. Tell me the whole thing. I'll show you
the move without any sauce on. So you do sauce on, down like that
then the back of the spoon, you'll swirl it back. Not bad. Not bad.
But if you do it - when you put it on if you go in and then... Oh, you
didn't say that! LAUGHTER
And actually, mine is more attractive.
LAUGHTER And then to serve, we have our
delicious sweet-and-sour potatoes. There we sit, our lovely piece of
veal on there, have a touch more sauce with it. It is so delicious.
There we go - a bit of a messy plate that one. We're done. Good to
go. Ladies, would you like to try some veal? That's an amazing smudge.
Do you like that smudge? Amazing. Have you had veal before, Katy?
We should not be afraid of it. We should eat more of it because it's
actually good for... What about the pudding? We're doing a delicious
plum trifle. Do you like the veal? First time for everything. All our
recipes are on our website. It is the same address if you want to e-
mail questions for Katy or Deborah Meaden. Or Tweet us and send us
your name. John Bishop is always welcome on our TV screens,
especially doing the stand-up he does best. This week he's talking
People in their 40s, we were introduced to the world of the
animal kingdom through David Attenborough. And the problem is if
you have ever watched one of those wildlife programmes with your
partner, you always end up getting compared to it. Like I have been
married now for 18 years - on and off, and always -
LAUGHTER Always what happens is you sit
there, you're watching a a wildlife documentary, and all of a sudden
she thinks that reflects our relationship. There was a
documentary on about six months ago about these emperor penguins that
go down to the South Pole, and they're there in the Antarctic,
they're there in sub-zero temperatures, and the female
penguin will lay an egg, and the male penguin then has to stand on
the egg for three months - three months - on the egg, standing there
in minus 50 degrees while the female penguin is out with her
mates clubbing! LAUGHTER
Or whatever female penguins get up to, and then come back three months
later, at which point he's nearly dead and he goes to get something
to eat. We're sitting there on the couch, she's going, "Three months.
You wouldn't do that for me, would you?"
"I babysat for you last week." "You wouldn't do that for me."
"I am not a peng win! You lay an egg, I'll sit on it!"
You can experience more of his scouse charm on BBC One and BBC One
HD. I am getting ready to pitch. Our next guest is from the Dragon's
Den. Welcome back to the show, Shall we start with two? They are
both lady things. The first one women like having cosmetic problems,
so what we do is we invent a skin disease maybe. Which doesn't exist
but we put fictitious things in papers and journals and we invent
the cure. The cure is a placebo but women love buying cosmetic pills,
so we invent something that doesn't exist and we invent a cure which
doesn't exist. Could you be arrested for that? Technically that
is - illegal. That's the word. Did you see my face trying not to
smile? That's not a good look. other one, ladies like things don't
they, enhancements. They like... What are we doing here? They like
fake tan, fake teeth, everything. Ladies do? Yes, I've seen nit
magazines. All ladies like long fingers, I've heard, so we invent
finger extensions that glue on, so all ladies can have long fingers.
That came into the Den once, but for cats. False fingernails for
cats. That came into the Den. I didn't think that was a very good
idea either. So is that potentially the most ridiculous pitch you've
heard or have there been worse? think that definitely ranks with
false fingernails for cats. They are great ideas. I will do it with
Duncan. You could well get Duncan to invest. But he's never invested
a Pakistani! He's saving it up for fingernail extensions. How is the
show going, are you enjoying it? is the 9th series. We have a new
drag gone. It is the first time in nine series we have had more than
one woman. Is there a bit of rivalry or is it better, less of a
boys' club? It is neither. We are all competitive. It is not about
whether you are a man or a woman in dragon's defpblt we are all
competitive. Having a new person, we all up our game She looks scary.
She made her money through haul snadge Indeed. She has a -- she
made her money through haulage? Indeed. She has a haulage business.
You need people in the Den who are prepared to put her money where her
mouth is. Hillary has got stuck in there. On seven series, how much
have you invested in? 26 businesses and over �2 million. Which is
interesting, because when you ask people, they think I never invest.
I don't know how that works. team up a lot with other Dragons.
Do those partnerships work well? Very well. I've done a lot of
businesss with Theo. It worked well and we know how it works. He knows
what he does and I know what I do. They all want your personal input.
You've got 26 businesses of your own. There must be a time when you
think, I can't do any more work. They are all in different phases.
Some of them are baby business, and others... I have had two failures.
They are all in different stages. And then I've got the really good
businesses. Who has made the best investments out of the Dragons?
Is there any dragon you wouldn't co-invest with? Peter maybe.
there are different businesses for different reasons. One of my best
investments, Facebook for foodies website, My Dish. That's one that
Peter did not get. Sometimes you think, I wouldn't invest with you
anyway, because I don't think you will add anything as a dragon. Not
only am I choosing the right entrepreneur but the right dragon.
Duncan is down with the kids. He invested in a band. No, that was
Peter. Anything that you didn't invest in that you think you should
have? I'm not a regret kind of person. I work hard to get that
investment. If you don't get it on the terms that you are happy with,
there is no point regretting. I suspect I might have missed Reggae
Reggae Sauce. Je ne regrette rien. We had him on here and he must have
said that a thousand times. We've got a funny clip hire. Peter Joans
can rap. # Testing. We are going to do a bit
of rap. I said a hip-hop # You don't stop the rocking
# To the bang bang boogie... # How long are the pitches that you
do? The longest one I've been involved with was three-and-a-half
hours, so when people see us go from nought to furious in 30
seconds flat, it could be three hours. And the shorths one I think
has been 11 minutes, which is as long as it takes for them to do
their pitch and us to say, "We're out." A lot of people have been
asking, is it a good time at the moment to start up a business? Our
country is in recession. Europe is collapsing financially. Is it a bad
time to get involved in business? If you've got a good business
proposition that's relevant now, you've got to think if it was
relevant last year it may not be relevant now. But it could be a
good time for business, because space clears. Businesses that
survive because people are spending money, people are very careful how
they spend their money in recession. It is hard to get a loan from a
bank, isn't it? It is. But there are ache el investors that you can
go to. If you have something edgy or risky, they are your best bet.
With your businesses, are you worried about what's going on?
Different businesses, different things. I would like to think we
spotted, you know this, hasn't just hands. I sold my main business,
West Star Holidays in 2007, just before the collapse. Because you
knew it was going to collapse? thought, now is my moment. I had to
do it when the market said it was ready. That's part of my reason for
exiting. Businesses have to look forward and think, how is this
going to affect my business? It might be a positive business. If
you are offering a good service and people trust you, you will do well.
That's what people are looking for. Very good advice, Deborah. Thank
you for that. Time has run away and for that reason, I'm out of this
interview. Deborah is staying around to invest in a dish with
Simon. E-mail or tweet if you have any questions or weird pictures.
Nothing as weird as Tim's please. There's lots more to encourages
including Wayne's cocktails, Lucy's gadgets, and all of this.
BBC is diving with the ocean giants. It's like jumping into six lanes of
traffic... Simon is cooking crispy corn
fritters. And JK Rowling asks, who do you think you are? He has risen
in his profession. Mercury Prize nominee Katy B has
Mercury Prize nominee Katy B has joined me and Simon to cook a
pudding. I go to the mercury often. There is so much disappointment in
the room. I hate to say that. It is the one thing where no-one really
knows. It is an independent judging panel. They sit and bang through
the albums and they only decide on the night, don't they? Really?
is often a surprise, the Mercury. can't remember who won last year. I
can't remember. Anyone know? And apparently when you win, your
record sales go whoosh. Apparently. Did you cook? I can boil an egg,
fry an egg. I can't poach an egg. You can't poach an egg! We'll teach
you that before you leave today. it is all eggs, is it? Steamed
vegetables. If you don't cook a lot, what do you eat? Eggs? Mashed
potato. I like chicken. I like spicy chicken. Have you got your
own flat? No. I still live with my parents. So your mum cooks all the
food. She cooks really good food. Your mum is sitting at home going,
"Come on!" I'm away a lot and my schedule is really busy, so she has
learned not to cook for me any more. There were quite a few arguments.
She eats really healthy. Have you got a sweet tooth. Definitely.
We are going to make a plum and ginger trifle. Shop-bought ginger
cake, apricot jam and rum. Plums, stewed. The custard, milk with
flour, grated ginger, squeezed all the juice out, sugar and eggs.
feels more like an autumn dish. British plum season is in July. We
always associate it with winter- time. Do you know what I like at
this time of year? A green gauge. Do you? Yes, very good. Anyway...
What's a green gauge? A green plum. Sweet but really nice. Small season
but really nice. Are they better than normal plums? You can't do
better. Apples are the Kings of fruit, in my mind. So... For the
custard we add the milk. Whisk that in. At school there were lumps in
the custard. We are making sure we don't get any. Whisk until it
becomes a smooth paste. What did you eat at the Brit stkphool There
was a canteen, but you -- what did you eat at the BRIT School? There
was a canteen, but everyone went out. Some people went to the park.
They were the naughty kids. Really? And there was a chip shop. You
could get a chip roll. Or there was a canteen. They did alright food.
Actually there was a kiosk and they did panini. What we need to do is
get our catering up to the BRIT School, a little van outside.
'n' roll food. They are arty types. We'll stick their sandwiches into a
ciabatta and charge them an arm and a leg. We've whisked the ginger and
the milk and the eggs. We are stirring so it doesn't catch or
burn. After five minutes or so it becomes thick. We let it go cold
and we end up with ginger custard. In here we've got loads of whipped
cream. Katy, all of the cream out of there and into there, mix
together. I read in the paper that food-related words that haven't
made Steve Wright the Oxford English dictionary because of not
enough use, spatulate is one. I want that to be a word that gets in.
You could stick that in one of your songs. What does it rhyme with?
Hate. I rate. Regulate. Regulate, yeah. That's
your challenge for next time you come on, Katy, what song has the
word "spatulate" in. You're looking massively impressed by that. OK. So
all of that mixes together. What you end up now is that beautiful
creamy custard. This is almost like the cream you get in the middle of
a custard slice. You actually look like you're quite enjoying that.
It's very therapeutic. With all of your pop education, didn't they say
to you, "One day you'll end up on a cooking show making trifle?" Might
be able to learn a few things. is beautiful. You can taste that in
its own right. I love ginger. Yeah, that's gorgeous, yeah. Now this is
all about assembling it. You can either do these as individual ones,
but it's far nicer to do bigger ones. This is where we need
Generation Game music. We break it up and pop it into the bowl.
Trifling is another word we can add a definition to - getting families
anymore, do they, Simon? No. All that goes in - chuck it in. This is
the joy of trifling. We can be random with it. All of that goes in,
then we add a good glug of rum on to there, then our lovely stewed
plums, so what we do with our plums is pop them around the edge like
that. We can do it with our fingers, so cut side up - this is not what
you were imagining you were going to do today. Dig in. All of that
goes around the edge like that. Just push them in. They go around
the sides so it looks pretty. This is all about presentation. The
flavour, you can slap it all in so it tastes delicious, but it would
not look near as pretty as this is. This lovely plum-ginger juice we've
got all gets poured in. We have no jelly, but traditional triefls
don't have jelly in them. It's a modern invention. In goes apricot
jam for flavour. Traditional trifles don't have jelly. They have
jam? Yeah. Then spoon all of the custard into there.
Lovely. This is all about building these things up. Then you need time
for it to set, OK? So once all that goes in - you can slap it all in,
Katy. All right. And then it will find its own level. Lovely. And
then finally, we... Is that all right? Beautiful. That'll do. Then
we add a big layer of cream once it's found its height, on the top
and pop that in the fridge. Calorific. This delightful fella.
Ooh! It sets really hard. We add a little bit of cinnamon which works
beautifully with plums, then crystallised ginger, which works
beautifully with the ginger in the custard. Finally, you can't have
trifle without hundreds and thousands - like that. OK. So who
would like to be mother? Tim, would you like to serve or would you like
me to serve? No thank you. I want to shove my face in it, don't you?
Wow! Less fruit, more cream, please! Katy, you first, as you
made it. While you're doing that coming up, Wayne is going all
savoury in cocktails, plus Deborah will be cooking the final dish.
What is the final dish? Courgette and sweet corn it fromers. OK. A
trip back in time now and a second chance for you to name the year
that all of this happened. How is it? Mmm. Lovely. Deja View.
# Huh, huh, huh, huh, huh belts came into effect just a month
ago, and all the signs are that it's brought a dramatic reduction
in deaths and serious injuries. BBC's Breakfasttime, Europe's first
regular breakfast television service, received more than 1,500
calls of congratulations from viewers within an hour of going on
the air for the first time this morning. The compact disk player is
in shops this morning. It works with a laserby. It will cost at
least �450, but the experts reckon it's a sound investment.
# I bought a ticket to the world # But now I've come back again #
What's wrong? The dog ran away. away? Yeah. He said he had to go
away and for me to be a good girl. He gave me this.
one in this year, but how true is our guesswork? Debra, what year do
you think that was, do you know? 1984. I went 5. What do you think?
Definitely early '80s. '85? I went '85. For the first time I am 100%
confident on this one. Don't say it. It was number one on a certain
birthday year. Whisper it to me. The 13th. The 13th he said - the
birthday - that's not a secret. you can work out the maths, I am 43.
It was number one. I heard it at a disco. We have a classic twist on
the bloody mary. This one is called Canary Mary. The name comes from a
bar in Shoreditch called the Breakfast Club. We have some of our
usual suspects like pepper and sauces - a bit of white pepper
first is coming in... How did this become a hangover cure is what I
want to know? Sea salt. There is really no such thing as a true
hangover cure. By drinking more! Hair of the dog, they say. A little
bit of grated ginger goes in there, then we're going to have a good
obligatory double measure of vodka going in, and then we've got our
yellow tomato juice in from the Isle of Wight. The pressed tomatoes
add a little bit of sweetness. like it. It's good. Are you partial
to a drink, Deborah? Orange juice, yes, obviously. That looks like
orange juice. No, it's tomato. Instead of red pepper, we have
jalapeno sauce. It's like a meal. One little dash of Worcester sauce.
What's your favourite tipple, then? What do you like? Probably - it
depends what season it is. I do like a nice cider Shandy in the
summer. Ooh. That sounds nice. lovely hot summer day in Somerset.
Crieder with lemonade. Yes, sorry. You're looking - that's not right.
He looks horrified. He always looks horrified. Don't worry. Sweet?
not proper bitter jumppy... flat cider. With cucumber, like a
Pimm's. I mean, how much do you want? We'll make some money out of
that. I'll tell you what, we'll just stick cider in ice and resell
it. Someone's done that. That was a great business thing. Do you know,
that absolutely regenerated... went mad, didn't it? Make it look
orange. That's all right, yeah. We've actually got some actual
pictures. I'll put this one to you whilst you're trying that. Good
manners... You have a sip of that. You might need it after the pitch
as well, Deborah. That's lovely. you like that? This is from Barbara,
"A phonetic dictionary, as you can't find a word in a dictionary
if you can't spell it" - is that a good idea? How big would it have to
be, this dictionary, because presumably however you pronounce
the word, you could have it many different ways. That's delicious.
What's in there that's different? Oh, it's the Hal peenio - that is
absolutely... You notice I just rolled it without ice, mixed the
ingredients. When you get watery tomato juice, it gets thin. It
kills it, so rolling it, you keep that tixure. See, Wayne just said
"watered down" - you would spell that "daan". I have a little bit of
fresh lemon juice, fresh pressed celery. Celery's juice is really
good in drinks especially if you're going to complement it with drinks
made from plants. We have agave syrup, which has a nice character,
a shot and a half of silver tequila, 100% agave. You're selling this as
a real natural drink. I like it. Really healthy! You can have one of
these - two of these! I am in. about healthy beer, you know?
going to polish it with these two! Apple lickure in there. Celery and
apple is a classic combination. It works really well with the lemon
and techealla, agave, to give it a bit of sweetness. I quite like,
given the size of my heels this morning - "High-heeled shoes you
can unscrew." That's a good idea, so you can go to work in your...
These would turn into flats, then. Or you go out on a night out when
you have had a few too many drinks you could waddle off. That sounds
like a good idea but if you took the heel office that, they wouldn't
be flat. Have you noticed all ideas are for women because they're the
ones that... They're all your ideas, for women. I am a bit worried about
you, Tim. Cosmetic ideas. False fingernails for cats were put
forward by a man. Have a try of this. That's absolutely gorgeous.
You have celery, apple... Thanks. If you want to mix either of his

gadget. What is it? The Paper Jamz promicrophone. It's basically
designed to make everyone sound like a professional singer? Even
me? Not a chance. This amp we have has a load of effects to multiply
your voice to make it sing like you have year singers behind you. You
can effectively sing back at yourself in imperfect harmony. Katy
has so kindly agreed to do a little demo. Hello, hello. I am going to
That's really weird. I don't think that's enhancing your voice. Do
chorus. This is like having a backing singer or choir behind you.
# I can't go to bed with the lights on. #
That works. Do you remember the big, pink microphones. I vaguely know
what you are talking about and it echoed. Yeah! Like an ice cream
cone. Yeah! No idea. And you can put songs in there? It comes with
two tracks pre-loaded. We've got our song and you could sing over
that. Exactly. And you can go to iTunes and
download your tracks, three at a time. This is �35. What do you
think of that? It is great. I would have loved that as a kid. What's

720 video. It allows you to balance your business and personal life
from one account, called BlackBerry Balance. You can do that with
corporate work and not affect your personal side. It is a great way to
eradicate the need to have two phones. That's fantastic. Another
great thing about on the back, this is a near-field communication panel,
the same technology you get with Oyster Cards, so in theory you can
use the phone to pay for your crisps or bus pass. It is not in
the UK yet, but it is coming. The fact that the BlackBerry has it is
exciting: at the moment it is on Vodafone for three on �41 a month
contract. It is coming in December in all other shops.
This is really cool. This is the App Blaster. It's a plastic gun

fingers on both triggers. What these two conductive pads do, they
are connected to the Triggers. One will pertain to bullets and the
other to missiles. Katy looks a little crazy. She is shooting
aliens which you couldn't see at home. This is footage from earlier
in the office. The idea is you are in the office. The idea is you are
playing in real life? That's the beauty about augmented reality. It
is about super-imposing graphics and images into real-life
situations. It is pretty sawsome isn't it? It is good that you can
shoot real people as well. How much is that? That's �20. And the app is
free of charge. Thank you to Katy and Lucy. If you want more

Now, she's the world's best-selling author but knows little about her
Gallic ancestry. JK Rowling asks, who do you think you are? I feel
this weird pull towards Louis. He left France to go to London, a
massive city that's also a foreign city, so he is an immigrant. That's
very gutsy. And then I found the letters so moving. This very young
man writing to his English girlfriend. Marion has told me he
was a waiter who worked at the Savoy, so I'm going to London. Jo's
great grandfather Louis arrived in London in the 1890s and worked in
the City as a waiter, before and after the First World War. Louis
was head wine waiter. And he got an award for it, a French award,.
are joking. Not at all. It's a prestigious distinction. This was
given to him in 1922. And here is his title in French. Fair play to
him. For a working class Frenchman who has come to London, he's risen
in his profession. Absolutely. And we are extremely lucky that the
Savoy keep an archive of their former employees. This is Louis's
card. The card contains his previous employment history.
Ed you can see the creator of Harry Potter in Who Do You Think You Are
on Wednesday at 9 on BBC One and BBC One HD would you ever delve
into your family history? I'm not sure I would like what you found.
I've got this image I've made up. I might stick with that. I think you
have loads of skeletons in your cupboard. The more I get to know
you... I'm cultivatingage edgy persona. Maybe. You can cook?
only can't I cook, I don't. For 25 years I've managed to resist
cooking and here I am, getting up early on a Sunday morning. The body
language when Deborah walked in, and I know she doesn't cook. We are
making courgette fritters. Celery salt, horseradish, Worcestershire
sauce, cherry tomatoes. Flour, milk, spring onions, carrot, sweetcorn
out of a tin, sugar, chilli point of order and eggs. Deborah Meaden,
the first job for you. The milk the first job for you. The milk
goes in there. The eggs go into there. I would hate my husband to
get the impression I could crack an egg. We've had so many tweets from
viewers with genius ideas. One of them is from Scott Richards. Egg
yolk sauce in a bottle, because everyone loves an egg yolk on their
chips? Do they? That was good timing. Half of the thing is in
getting an investor on board is getting them whener in the mood.
You have to work, Deborah Meaden. Whisk that and add to the flour.
Can I use a fork? It is fine. It is delightful. Bless you, Deborah.
There is always the worry that one week we will fall off air. This
might be the week, Simon. Pour that into the floufrplt Legal pour?
Literally pour. And then give it a whisk. Simon, have you got any
ideas? Chefs always have grand ideas. I have mentioned on the show
before, one of the things that frustrates me, when you have a food
processor... When you use a food processor. When you start them up
and get them to move, it never quite does it. I think there's a
market for a food processor that works on a track or a spiral. When
it goes in you can press spatulate mode or whatever you might call it.
Spatulate is not actually a word. I'm not understanding any of the
words, so don't pick up on spatulate! Here is your processor.
You have all the stuff in from and when you turn it on, it goes, glug,
glug, so I think there should be something that has rails, some kind
of motion that helps it move. Deborah? I think it sounds like a
good idea. Only because I'm listening to an expert. You should
always know who the expert is in a room. Simon knows what he is
talking about. Well done. We've got another tweet here, from Kate.
Pyjama bottoms from when women are asleep which exfoliate the hairs

trying to sleep with sandpaper strapped to your legs? LAUGHTER
I've done worse, Deborah. 350-50 -- 50-50 flavoured toothpaste, bacon
and eggs one end and mint at night? Not quite. I think I read that
somebody called you up and asked to borrow money from you or something?
I get quite a lot of that. Do you? One of them was rather charming. It
said, "I've got no business investment, can you just give me
some money?" You do admire the cheek really. Did he get the money?
No. Do people stop new the street saying, "Deb remarks I've got a
great idea ?" Does it get annoying? I don't mind. I like that people
have got good ideas. That doesn't bother me. That's a great reason to
stop me and talk to me on the streets. Have I ever invested in
anybody who has stopped me on the street? Not so much. Say for
example my idea, it is fine, but to get that to the marketplace, it is
masses of money, investment and chance. I can't tell you the amount
of times I say there's a thousand miles between an idea which we all
have, thousands every day, on our sofas, and a business proposition.
I'm looking for business proposition. We can all come up
with great ideas but you've got to have a reason why you would do it.
You've got to enter the market, you have specialist knowledge, you've
got to give me something to make it a business prop sifplgts So we
mixed if flour, -- proposition. So we mixed the flour, sweetcorn.
These are our fritters. Our Bloody Mary tomatoes, in a hot panto
seefrplt we add celery, sell -- in a pot pan to sear: we had celery,
celery salt, horseradish and tomato juice. Shake. Pop in the oven for
10-15 minutes until they are soft and we end up with glorious Bloody
Mary tomatoes. Wow! We put a bit of rocket on the plate. You can use
the cannery Mary that Wayne used in the came way. These cherry tomatoes
with vodka, it is a simple pasta sauce. That would be glorious.
is quite a drunken meal, vod characters tomatoes and a Balady
Mary to wash it down with -- Bloody Mary to wash it down with. We are

Deja View, the year. Over to Tim Deja View, the year. Over to Tim
and Katy. The news headlines about the seat belt law, breakfast TV and
the CD being launched. It was 1983. I was a couple of years out. I was
closest. It was Wayne's birth day. Only a few more minutes. Alex
Jackson says to you Deborah, do you have any good tips on successful
pitching and presentation. If you were going to come into the den?
honest. That's the single biggest thing. Be honest and be yourself.
Don't try to go into this slick sales pitch and be somebody else.

to read people's futures through the stars or something, and charge
them for finding out, maybe on a phone line. We just say nice things

LAUGHTER Women like that sort of stuff. They do. And make-up they
like. You just study women all day long. I like kittens as well. I've
got a handbag full of kittens. That's it. We are out of time.
