Saturday Kitchen viewers are left furious over 'inappropriate' segment | The Sun

SATURDAY Kitchen viewers were left furious over an 'inappropriate' segment during yesterday's show.

Fans weren't impressed after host Matt Tebbutt, chefs Ching-He Huang and Mary McCartney and special guest Mo Gilligan "wasted food" at the table while celebrating the Lunar New Year.

As Ching-He Huang moved the glasses and plates out of the way, she explained the them: "This is a prosperity toss."

She continued: "Everyone has to do this, usually the first course in the restaurant or dinner table…"

The chef told them to use their chopsticks and toss the food up as high as possible in an upward manner.

The dish, which consists of shredded vegetables and smoked salmon, is usually eaten at the Lunar New Year.

However, others pointed out that it is a tradition that many people follow.

"It's just some of the noodles and veg on the table. Far more waste in most homes at Christmas. TV gold. Gung Hei Fat Choi!," one said.

Another pointed out: "All the comments about wasting food! Its a traditional meal that is eaten off of the table, hence the reason why they showed it. No food is ever wasted on these shows, so stop with the negative comments."

A third chimed in: "Many many years ago in Singapore I was asked to do this in a restaurant and I thought they were taking the mick πŸ˜‚ I'm so pleased to see you do this."

"This was always fun in Singapore πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡¬ called Lo Hei," a fourth wrote.
