I've never experienced 'fine' cuisine.
Some of the over technical stuff sometimes appears too fussy to me;
"I'm going to start by searing the meat" - so far so good - "then I'm going to transfer it to a hot oven" - good, go on - "the sliced potatoes are sauteed in the hot meat fat" - fine, fine -"then i'm going to make a sauce of puréed ginger and garlic" - erm... - "and i'm going to serve it on a bed of caramalised betroot and stilton stuffed vine leaves" - STOP!
Then again, in fairness I've never tried it so I don't know. Most of the stuff they do in Ready Steady Cook looks great to me and I'd love to give it a try.
