The Swedish Chef and PAM

Jarrod Fairclough – You know what I love besides Muppets, Netflix and crying at Pixar films?  Cooking.  I’m terrible at it, and it will likely take me three hours to make 3 minute pasta, but I love it.  And my recent find was cooking spray – how did no-one tell me cooking spray was a thing?…
