    James because you wacked him in the balls.

  • Annie1962

    Did Barry and Jamie eat Ben's ensemble the wrong way round? ie dessert first?

  • Annabel Smyth
    Annabel Smyth

    Much as I love James, I think this time Ben won because he did a full 3-course meal in his 20 minutes. And who wants to overcook their steak like that? Very rare, please - BLUE, even.

    Wouldn't you rather cook with gas? Just wondering.

  • vinzcassels

    Any chance that Ben and James could teach those of us who can do some basics to plate it up in a more stylish way for when we really want to impress?

  • Aryiana Moore
    Aryiana Moore

    I 100% agree that Ben should have won. It’s because the focus was on the ultimate 20 minute meal. I’m sure both were delicious though. But three courses in 20 minutes??? Ebbers you spoil us.

    Jamie? speaks like james cordon is it a coincidence or are they from the same town/city?

  • Morgannin

    Every time they say "Chef V. Chef Battle," I hear "Cheffy Chef Battle."

  • rhet

    James should've won. I just want him to win Always.

  • MaZEEZaM

    The chef battles are much better than the Ultimate series but I still find the childish commentary and behaviour quite annoying. The Sorted videos I like best is when Ben is cooking proper meals with one of the guys preping the ingredients, I actually learn from these videos unlike the Ultimate battles and only a little from these chef battle.

    Hey guys. I love your stuff. I still have more to watch but I've been sub'd for months. I was shopping the other day and found some jicama. I love the stuff but I am used to finding it at salad buffets, so having it in my kitchen is new. I have not seen it used in the SortedKitchen yet and was wondering what you five think of it?

  • Katraca Leigh
    Katraca Leigh

    Both of these meals are incredible feats but I wonder how long these meals would have actually taken if my oven wasnt magically preheated, or ramekins already set out and pre greased. Maybe do a similar battle from ACTUAL start to finish, getting out dishes and everything

    i think James is a fundamentally a better cook but gets less done while ben is a more impressive/Showie faster Chef. i think bens cocky can do Charisma, adventurous Mise en place & food Theatre often tend to get him the win over better dishes. "no offence Ebbers"

  • oropher777

    I would've picked James, mostly because I truly detest rhubarb! But both meals were lovely and I'm in awe of their ability to pull it together in 20 minutes. Also, how cute was that mutual admiration society before hand between the two chefs?!

    Would it be possible to do a blindfolded battle? Say one person shouts instructions while the other tries to follow command. Obviously no cutting or anything dangerous, but I think it could be fun.

    That should read not a chef vs not a chef. You cannot be from the uk and be real chef. People in the uk don’t understand how the whole food thing works. You guys prove that true with every episode you make. You’ve never once made edible food.

    Im going to try that asparagus soup because it will: A) Flabbergast my inlaws B) Deeply disturb my wife when I start foaming the flavoured milk

  • Bethany Olckers

    Oh I love rhubarb, there's just no one doing stuff with this. Except crumble. And it's so rare where I grew up in the USA and even rarer here in South Africa. I would die for a rhubarb themed show with new things to do with it. Just LOVE it. Miss it so much.

    i want to see a battle where they start with an empty counter, and have to un-package everything instead of having it all already out. OR a two-part thing where they go shopping for their ingredients first so we get a cost to the dish as well :)

    I would say Ben should get the win cause he made a full on proper meal with first course, drink and desert. Though James' did look amazing and I wanna make it more then Ben's tbh

    Have everyone make a dish BUT they're not allowed taste it as they make it. Beginning to end. Cook without checking the taste of anything.

    Hang on! A chef that uses "Truffles oil"?? There is no such thing as truffles oil, as there is NO oil in truffles and a truffle in oil would go bad before the oil gets ant flavor from it. world is now crumbling.

  • /

    James tried to please the jugdes' pallette (steak, fries for Jamie), but it backfired. If he had gone with a meal he would have chosen sans judges' influence, then he may have won.

    Did anyone else think shokugeki no soma when the first seat did that 7 course meal when Ebbers said he was doing a celebration of spring?

    Great job Ben. I feel bad saying this but you kinda owned James in every way in this battle, that should motivate him for next time
