The most surprising thing about this thread is apparently how little some people are seasoning their food! The list of ingredients being mocked for being things we should have in our cupboards is a pretty a basic mix of herbs, spices and flavourings IMO...
Some of the reactions above sound like they're from people that don't really cook (hence the incredulity about being expected to have an 85p pot of Tesco ground turmeric at home), and as such aren't actually going to be cooking any of the recipes from the show anyway and are just itching for an argument!
I personally do actually spend a lot of time cooking, and do have a lot of ingredients at home, but am not keen on spicy food, and do have a number of herbs and spices, but just not those particular ones, which is why out of that list I only have lemon juice, and wasn't mocking the list.
I'm actually a food technologist, and work in the food industry.
