About this deal

The recipe makes 6-8 portions, but it’s a good-tempered dish so take what you need and eat the rest cold or warmed through the next day. Where possible, alternatives are given for ingredients difficult or costly to obtain and every recipe includes advice on how to prepare ahead for efficient and panic-free cooking. It has to be made at least the day before it is needed and is better for two or three days in the fridge.

I read books from 33 (51 in 2022) different years, with all decades in the 20th and 21st centuries apart from the 1910s and 1980s represented and the oldest from 1914. Out of the 187 (187, 185, 159) books I read, I assigned a diversity theme to 94 of them (82/187 in 2022, 74/185 in 2021, 43/159 in 2020), so 71 (45, 50, 21) about race, 10 (6, 17, 8) LGBTQI+ issues and 11 (17, 3, 10) covering both, 0 (1, 2, 3) solely disability and 1 (2, 1) race, LGBTQI+ and disability, none (2, 1, none) primarily about class and none (2, 1, none) race, LGBTQI+, disability and class. My lovely BookCrossing not so secret santa Julia gave me three lovely books as well as chocolate and a lovely cloth bag. I have never been passionate about figs in their raw state and, yes, I have eaten them in Italy, perfectly ripe and straight off the tree.

I always associate Little with his eponymous restaurant that sprung up in Frith Street, Soho, in the mid-Eighties. I have a weakness for white chocolate, white Toblerone if I can get my hands on it, otherwise plain old Milky Bar buttons.

I had a smile at a couple of in-jokes: I loved his question “How many conversations actually include a discussion of bread rolls, or sport shoes, or small alleyways between houses? Unsuprisingly, I rediscovered timeless classic recipes that are still appropriate for cooking in the 2020's.

Combine the eggs and sugar in the bowl of the mixer and beat on high speed until it reaches the ribbon stage (ie off-white and stiff). We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. In the restaurant we use a frying pan rather than a cake pan, and I prefer crisp English apples such as Worcester Pearmain or Braemar to Le Golden, which the French choose as a matter of national honour. It’s important for runners to do strength training especially as we get older, to prevent injury and help us to stay strong.Sorbets are so easy to make with a sorbetiere or ice-cream maker that many people fail to do so, as if ease of execution is synonymous with cheating in the kitchen. Sidhu doesn’t mention her Indian heritage much, apart from musing on how Indian women are often put upon wherever they are, and that she was uncomfortable with the assumption she did or should have children when she went to visit relatives there. Years ago I was a restaurant critic, and invited to a grand celebration of French cuisine at the Dorchester Hotel. com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US. These in the photo are the oldest ones on the shelf though I will try to read a Three Investigators book a week for a while at least.

In Fair’s first novel, published originally in 1952 and very much of its post war(s) time, we initially spend some time wandering around the titular village and meeting its inhabitants and their houses (always very important to Fair). Honestly, unless you are an enthusiastic and well-practiced cook, you simply wouldn’t believe how many puffed-up, information-light (some downright misleading) cookery books there are out there, or at least you wouldn’t realise that until you read and consciously applied your learning from Little’s “Keep It Simple”. It was, inevitably, in that drawer where you put such things and then forget about them, where everything is tangled up - whisks with chopsticks through their wires - a shameful place.

Grate 1/2 teaspoon of zest each from the lemon and the orange, using the second-finest grating surface. Emma treated me to two Dean Street Press Furrowed Middlebrow reissues: Ursula Orange’s “Begin Again” and “Tom Tiddler’s Ground” and Ali bought me two Persephone books, Madeline Linford’s “Out of the Window” and Sian James’ “One Afternoon”.
