Liverpool stars to hold Masterchef-style cook off

Nando and co to enter the world of competitive food preparation

In order to prove that their talents extend beyond controversial autobiographies, self defence and having haircuts like Brüno, some of Liverpool FC’s stars will this year hold a Masterchef-style cook off.

Jamie Carragher, Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres will hit the kitchens at Carragher’s Cafe Sports restauarant (“Where healthy eating is the name of the game“) and grumpy celebrity chef Marco Pierre White will preside over the final in October.

The Sun report with some of their trademark made-up quotes:

An Anfield insider said: “The lads have all been having a bit of banter.

“Stevie, Carra and Nando are good mates and they agreed to do it as a bit of a laugh.

“They’ve all been practising hard at home. Stevie keeps joking he’s going to whip up a pan of Scouse while Nando and Carra want to do something a little fancy.

“Nando fancies himself as the favourite, he is always cooking at home for his missus and reckons his Spanish dishes will win over Marco and the other diners.”

If any of the boys are in need of culinary tips, they should consult Patrice Evra, who put aside his hatred of groundsmen from South London to whip up a delightful lobster ravioli on Red Devils Kitchen earlier this year.
