Cookery Quote
Whenever you see crossed chives you are in trouble
Never eat anything bigger than your head
We should all be eating less meat and better meat


Broad beans meanz delicious

As the differences between the seasons blur, the broad bean remains one of the jewels in the greengrocer’s crown. Businessmen on the other side of the world may have flooded our supermarkets with asparagus cut in Mexico a week or so before the British crop was ready, but now we should be rejoicing in the first young broad beans. It is ironic that, when dried, the broad bean becomes the fava bean, popular in the Middle East and Mediterranean as a humble food for peasant farmers that would last through even the toughest winter.
