John Torode’s got ‘chef’s arse’
THEY say, ‘If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen’, but Masterchef’s John Torode has soldiered on — despite revealing a bit of bottom trouble.
Speaking to the Daily Star, the 51-year-old said he had developed a rather embarrassing and uncomfortable-sounding ailment, called ‘chef’s arse’.
‘It happens when you get really hot and the sweat drips down your back and the only place it can go to is the crack in your bum. And then the sweat dries and becomes salty and it chafes together, ‘ Torode explained, in a textbook case of TMI.
Fortunately, there is a culinary cure close at hand…
‘There used to be all sorts of remedies, like rub cornflour on it,’ John said.
Let’s hope his poor wife, Celebrity MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner, isn’t the one who has to administer it — and that she’s not a fellow sufferer.
In any case, John hasn’t let a spot of crevice chafing get in the way of his latest project. Starting tonight, he’s fronting a brand new Korean cookery show.
‘It was an extraordinary journey,’ he said. ‘I was dropped into a world that I knew very little about and I learned a huge amount.
‘Each show is based around a theme, be it a season of the year or an ingredient.
‘You’ll see me cooking with a few people and trying out the recipes for myself.’
John Torode’s Korean Food Tour starts at 9pm tonight on the Good Food channel
