    That's my biggest beef (groan!) with a lot of the 'Masterchef' ilk of tv programmes, everything is geared towards 'tv friendly' timings. In a lot of traditional recipes, time is the secret ingredient that makes a good dish a special one.

    Indeed.... Let's have more 'slow food', than fast food! What did you think of the crespelle/goat stew and zabaglione pics I posted earlier?

    The stew/polenta was defo 'slow food', with lots of marinating/stirring for hours, especially to get the richness in the sauce.

    It’s like “Spag bol” vs Ragu, you want a 3hr simmer with a Ragu, and a good 15min sauté for the finely chopped soffrito. At least a quarter of a bottle of excellent red wine.

    ...when time is tight can knock together a decent Spag Bol in half an hour, but it just doesn’t have the depth.
    You're right, but in Italy it's *always* ragu. You wouldn't eat 'spag bol'; things are either done right or not at all - and that's how we make pasta sauce at home.

    Even making a good Pomorola sauce (see link below) for spaghetti [yes in Italy tomato sauce, not meat, is served with spaghetti] or cannelloni takes time, so that all the flavours are properly infused.

    Quite simply, if you want to make great food, it can't be rushed!

    Lol - just wish you were nearer, as I'm sure we could enjoy some nice lunches/dinners, and pick up some recipe tips from each other along the way!

    Currently in the process of 'consolidating' accommodation with my partner here in Mistley (she's selling her place in Bristol). Once that's sorted, we'll have a lot more freedom to move around a bit.

    My family are still back on The Wirral and so I do go back that way regularly, or at least I did until fairly recent upheavals. I wouldn't be surprised if at least one of my three kids doesn't end up in Liverpool at some point too! :-)

    Home made chicken tikka masala with the sauce 'pepped up' a bit with some jalfrazi paste. Basmati rice, carrots, fine green beans, 'sugarsnap' peas, brocolli and red peppers. Cucumber and mint raita on the side.

    Bottle of Becks lager (because I couldn't get hold of any Kingfisher).

    Strawberries with plain low-fat yoghourt to follow.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Nice one, Tony. When you're in the area, we'll have to arrange a music/foody/drinky sesh sometime, then!

    Interesting spelling of yogurt

    At some point you're going to have to treat us to some pics of all these culinary masterpieces of yours!
