I thought it was fun. It is after all only a half hour program.
Given what they gave him I would guess it was pretty edible.
Nothing looked burned. He did mention the problems with the
control of the heat in the ovens and the timing factors.
Wrong on eating salads with hands.... but that was the provided
lady assistant.
Given that they aren't going to sit down and research a 1540's meal and come
up with recipes in the time given for his mission, I thought it was good 
 I did see that they
provided him with enough meat to roast to keep it  camera friendly.
Looked like they had fun.
