The Dark Side

Delia Smith has been cooking for 39 years. Her cookery programmes have influenced millions, and caused stampedes on ingredients. Last night, her latest series began on BBC2. But what’s this? She’s using convenience foods; opening packets of frozen mashed potato and, horror of horrors, tinned mince. Sam Wollaston sums up the ghastliness of the whole affair in today’s Guardian pretty well.
 
Delia’s gone over to the Dark Side…
 
Update: So what does this stuff actually taste like? These folks are not impressed. I don’t think I’ll bother with any of these recipes, thank you very much.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
