Great British Bake Off’ star Prue Leith has revealed she once accidentally stabbed a colleague.
The ‘Great British Bake Off’ star has revealed she knifed a fellow chef after falling over while working in a busy kitchen – although the situation wasn’t quite as serious as she initially feared.
“I once thought I’d stabbed a fellow chef in the manhood.
“I was very pregnant and quite unbalanced, and I slipped and fell with a knife in my hand and blood poured out of his upper thigh.”
Prue’s colleague was very understanding about the situation.
However, the 79-year-old restaurateur still gave some monetary compensation to her colleague.
She told the Guardian newspaper:
“The poor guy didn’t want to take his trousers down in front of a woman, and giving a brandy at that time was probably the worst thing you can do.
“He was, in fact, very sweet about it, although I had to give him quite a hefty amount of money when he couldn’t work for a while and then wanted to go back to Spain and open a cafe.”
Meanwhile, Prue recently argued there are “too many cookery shows” on television.
“My own opinion is there are too many cookery shows on telly. I don’t watch cookery shows because for me they go too slowly.
“I think ‘I know what he’s doing now, why doesn’t he get on with it?’ But if you’re learning to cook from telly, you need it to be slow. I would prefer there to be less cookery, but broadcasters are doing what the public wants.”
