The Kitchen Is On Fire (food)

It's the 21st June, aka the Summer Solstice, aka the longest day of the year, aka the day James and Sam decide to show just how square they are. They ponder a remake of the Rock involving a terror threat at Goodwood Golf Course, as well as cartoon pornography, Believe by Cher, and the Pidgin 100 Menu Party. James apologises for being accidentally rude about a chef. Sam does a none too shabby vocoder impression. Are hippies really having more fun? Was James and Sam's She Loves You karaoke effort really the highlight of the Pidgin second birthday party? And would Nick Cage put in a performance as a plucky caddy? Find out the answer to these burning kitchens in this week's the Question Is On Fire.

Dense treats, rat tails, poisons and the Ebola virus are all on the dummie's agenda this week. Sam struggles with his fame, James struggles to the cook the correct amount of eggs while drunk.

Things get close to dangerous on this weeks TKIOF with discussion of a politically lethal topic. In other news Sam's geography skills are borderline /flat-out idiotic and James blows his nose a lot. There is a flurry of toasted nuts, a long discussion of a dieting darts player and someone uses the word 'cookery'. Yet another podcast delivered to the very highest of standards from your friendly neighbourhood dummies at The Kitchen Is On Fire. Namaste!

Sam and James are back at the restaurant, of a Wednesday morning. Mickey is cleaning windows. The postman drops in. The plumber arrives. It's all go. It's also hard to focus, but they manage to find time to discuss some pretty big topics including celebrities who look like students, 80s sex moves, and consciousness. Sam's just returned from visiting Montreal restaurants Joe Beef and Au Pied du Cochon. James had a dream about a spider. Is Sam lazy? Does the human soul exist? Did Mickey actually have a boner last week? And just how indecent was the proposal in the film Indecent Proposal? Find out all this AND SO MUCH MORE in this week's TKIOF.

The great and aforementioned Micky the window cleaner makes a brief and somewhat traumatic appearance, setting up a long discussion on when it is and isn't appropriate to show one's arousal, fishing, partying in 1st class, and getting surprised by offal. Sam bought more Cheerios. James ate liver at school. What happened to Gary Rhodes? Why is Rick Stein increasingly seeming like a weird old uncle? Will Micky be a thorn in the side of Amazon's drone programme? All this and more, in this week's TKIOF.

The boys are in the kitchen, cooking up some medicine. Or, if you will, some delicious snacks for their new bar, Enfant Terrible. This is their bid for a TV show, make no mistake. Consequently they discuss smoked oysters, cranberry sauce, Laurel and Hardy and toasties. Sam nearly had a Twitter 'beef' regarding AA Gill's passing. James reveals he once wore a nightshirt. Is the word 'spicy' too Frankie and Benny's? How much bread is too much bread? And is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory really a not-very-subtle reference to what you see when you look up Grandpa Joe's nightie? Find out all this, and more, in this week's TKIOF.

There's a new president-elect and James and Sam are about as damn chuffed about this as everyone else. They cheer themselves up by discussing Hollyoaks actresses of yore, but can't help returning to discussing The Donald's diet of lemonade and fast food, as well as the new New York Michelin stars, chef Gabriel Kreuther, and cows' anuses. Sam roasted a topside of beef. James got bullied by a Pidgin customer. How many nuts do you need to buy for the apocalypse? What is the sixth quarter? And just how 'bulk' can you go?

A by-now legendary after-service recording occurs on Sam's birthday, with a debut appearance from 'sweet' Caitlin McDonald and yet another bizarre and shouty cameo from restaurant manager Jamie. They discuss honest criticism, arsehole volcanoes and whether people find James and Sam sexy. Sam has spent the day with sore testicles. James makes the strangest noise Sam has ever heard. What is a nugget? Why is Jamie shouting at Caitlin? What is a fish witch? Find out this week on the Kitchen Is On Fire.

Sam and James' tails are up since their restaurant, Pidgin, was awarded a Michelin star. They agree it's time to knuckle down before moving onto in-depth discussions about yogurt on toast, Bristol restaurants, Spanish breakfast buffets, and Dutch food. Sam heroically brings about the return of the 'Obscene Ingredient' segment. James humiliates himself. Are navy outfits camp? Is Latin still a legitimate dinner-time language? And just what is the pecking order for eggs at a buffet?

Sam and James are hanging out in James's office, much to his creepy delight. They chew over a debate they went to last week on French food, as well as pondering classic Italian restaurants featuring Kenny Rogers and quizzes in Paris. James bought a grouse. Sam is near-tumescent at his cavolo nero-heavy dinner at Pidgin. Why is James uneasy? What does kicking up the leaves mean? And can you milk Moby?
