Not loving it at all. In fact Mr Marco Pierre White is putting me off. The whole repeating himself 3 or 4 times - annoying.
When he kept saying 2 "X', 2 "Y" three times over, well any normal Chef would think he was asking for 6 of each item not hassling them for 2 of them. And saying it over and over is not going to get it cooked any quicker.
I think Marco is doing what I've read recommended for doing with kids - say it over and over until you get some kind of acknowledgement you've been heard. He stops when they say "Yes Marco!" or "Yes chef!" because he knows they heard him and should have added it into their workload. It's something I've seen before in cooking shows but not usually as machine-gun-like as Marco does it. And it definitely works with my kids, either repeating myself until they say they heard me or saying it then saying "Yes mum I heard you mum" so they realise I was after a response.
