Ex Navy Chef = liar on CV

An ex navy chef has been exposed as a liar http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7274743.stm after making things up on his CV: including getting Royal gifts of a castle,
Knighthood and cooking for USA presidents.


Your thoughts are...?

The man deserves a medal :thumright: - theoretically he has 'cooked' for the Queen ('s Royal Navy .... !! ;) )

Gullibility still rules in the make-belive world of US Television then ..... :lol:

Hmm, I can see the problem. He claimed he served on the Royal Yacht Britannia. But also claimed to have served in the Royal Navy..?! 8O
 
It says something about the the US upper class that the quality of the cooking counts less than the social qudos of the (celebrity) cook!

If he makes good cheesy hammy eggies (Nutty's version using goat cheese is particularly nice) I'm interested! :razz:

"It was an English fruitcake that weighed over 360 pounds," he told the Toronto Sun. "I worked on these elaborate side panels, which told the history of the royal Windsor and Spencer families - in icing!"

I'll give the man credit, if you're going to lie, do it in style! A family history-Cake, beats the edible paper with Tom & Jerry on.
 
At least he got the 'cake being done at the school' right - I was in Pembroke when it was being put together.

Hey, I could claim I (was one of the dusties that) provided the ingredients for the Royal Cake - an extra bit on my CV ..... :thumright:

:biggrin:

If his time at sea was on the Britannia, he was never a Chef.

He would have been a cook, the change to chef has only been for the past few years or so.

Some spotter will know exaxtly when.

And the day they changed from cooks to chefs the food did not taste any better so call themselves what they like.


And remember anyone can cook, it is what it tastes like that matters.
