Forfar Bridies and Mr Kipling Apple Pies – in search of a decent cricket tea

To round things off, how about a couple of slices of malt loaf liberally spread with margarine and if you are really lucky, the pièce de resistance, a selection of Mr Kipling cakes – apple pies, jam tarts and maybe a French fancy or two

Duck egg and chorizo tortilla

Duck egg and chorizo tortilla

Wine wise, without the chorizo I might say a French chardonnay. By the way I'm sorry if you like James Martin, but whoever thought he would make an acceptable 'face of cookery' for the BBC wants a horse whipping

Chorizo, Cannellini Bean and Butternut Squash Stew with Mashed Potatoes and Kale

Chorizo, Cannellini Bean and Butternut Squash Stew with Mashed Potatoes and Kale

I usually buy Delicious and BBC Good Food every month and then a random selection of other ones. However if you fancied making this a simple one pot stew, you could just stir the raw kale into the stew about 5 minutes before the stew is ready and serve with some crusty French bread instead

pea and ricotta polpette with mint and pistachio pesto

pea and ricotta polpette with mint and pistachio pesto

Sicily’s food has clear Greek, Spanish, French, Italian and Arab influences. I don’t want to be on the side of phony elites, but have not heard a thorough, convincing argument on either side despite trying to listen to low hype sources (NPR, BBC, CBC)

Even on a day like French Mother’s Day today, I can’t ask for that gift. Recipe from BBC Good Food. The only consoling thought is that everyone seems to love a good carrot cake – now including French hubby, who normally only appreciates spices in a curry or tagine
