I initially wanted a chicken soup but then I realised I wanted something a bit more substantial. So I created this dish, which I suppose is a hybrid between a tagine and a light stew. I prepared this dish like a tagine in the sense of layering but added more water to it to create a soupy base.

Before I was involved with filming I always assumed that it would be a simple one shot wonder and voila!

Well if you ask me the whole December/January transition is ridiculous. Being a glutton one minute and then abstaining the next seems like a sure fire recipe for a bipolar episode. Surely we would all be much better off changing our habits in a less drastic fashion? Perhaps we could start a detox in February... or March... maybe July?

I'm at a party and have ended up talking to gastro-bores. Foodies. I can be a bit foody when the mood takes me, but this conversation, lubricated by alcohol and MasterChef, is getting out of control. Predictably, the group are trying to impress each other with wildly implausible meals - stuff they just "whip up" at home. Yeah right.

Last week, cooking legend Delia Smith made some rather bold claims in the Radio Times; suggesting that people can't cook anymore and that TV shows such as MasterChef are intimidating, rather than inspirational. As an amateur home cook, food lover and cookery show watcher, I beg to differ.
