Celebrity chef Manu Feildel weighs in on the debate about restaurant special menus.
On Monday’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show, hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson argued about whether menu items are a way to move expired food.
Jackie, 48, believed the special menu was a creative outlet for chefs, while Kyle, 52, thought it was about not wasting ingredients before they spoil; However, when they called Manu, he revealed the truth to them.
‘It depends on where you go. If you go to the coffee shop around the corner, maybe they’re trying to get rid of what’s in the back of the refrigerator,” the My Kitchen Rules host, 49, said.
‘But if you go to a restaurant, a special is a special. That’s why it’s called special.

However, Kyle pressed the French chef on the question and asked him about the old meat in the supermarket.
“Isn’t that the same old meat from Coles, the one that’s turned gray with the ‘special’ label?”
‘No, it’s not special. But the price is special,’ Manu responded.

Kyle and Jackie later admitted that they were both technically right about the special menu.
‘Well, thank you for the truth, Manu. “Some restaurants are doing it as a business, but at the top end of town reputation matters and they are doing it as a creative outlet.”
“So we were both right,” Jackie said.
It comes after Manu was the subject of a cruel on-air prank orchestrated by The Kyle and Jackie O Show and his son Jonti.
Jonti, 18, who signed with the South Sydney Rabbitohs youth division, was filmed making a joke to his father that he had ruined his NRL career before it started after a wild weekend doing drugs.
‘I screwed up, dad. Next week the Bunnies are going to give us a drug test,” Jonti joked.
He continued: “I went smoking weed with my friends last weekend, so I’m not sure if it’s in my system or not.”
Jonti (pictured), 18, who has just signed with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, last year told the celebrity chef he had ruined his NRL career before it started after a wild weekend consuming drugs.
At that moment, the famous chef became furious and scolded his son: ‘Come on, brother. Come on. Fuck. Damn, Jonti. Fuck, fuck, fuck, Jonti. Come on. Shit, bro.
‘We have talked about this. Think about your damn career, man. I don’t want to scold you, Jonti. I don’t really want to scold you, but you know you have to grow up.’
Feildel went on to say that he already thought Jonti drank too much and tried not to judge him, “but now you’re smoking a fucking joint.” Whats Next? Fuck.’
But when Jonti asked his father to urinate in his cup so he could pass the next drug test, Feildel insisted that his son would have to take responsibility for his actions, even if it meant losing his spot on the team.
Feildel seemed relieved to realize it was a joke. ‘A bunch of bastards. Oh Lord. He was about to cry.’
