Foodie chuckles

There has been many a food-related chuckle this week. I am loving Jamie Oliver’s adverts for his new Channel Four TV show, Jamie Does, they are gloriously Fast Showesque.

Let’s hope the actual program is as amusing and tempts us with some delicious regional delicacies from around the world – I’m afraid his American Road Trip, though entertaining, did little to inspire the cook in me.

I also read this little anecdote in my Graze box this week. To propose to a woman in ancient Greece, a young man would simply have to throw her an apple. If she caught it, he knew she had accepted his offer.

Well thank goodness I wasn’t born in ancient Grecian times! I would have remained a life-long spinster, such are my catching skills. I must admit, I am much more impressed by a proposal on a gondola in Venice – just call me fussy!

This week, our Year Round Dairy Cookbook has been reduced to less than half price. It’s a staggering £2.99 for gorgeous seasonal inspiration. Here’s my favourite recipe from the spring section, Lemon Chicken with Potato Wedges, an easy and healthy dinner – good enough to cook for friends.

    I loved it too. Jamie is so natural with the local people. It was fasinating and inspiring. I think I will stick with a knife and fork and my own plate though!
