how to shake your salt habit (without losing any flavour)

First, it’s useful to understand what salt is. It’s the white crystals we sprinkle on food to make it taste better – it creates chemical reactions that make flavours really pop in the mouth. Every good cook knows this to be true. The chemical name for salt is sodium chloride. And sodium is the problem. A high-salt diet disrupts the body’s natural sodium balance, so that it holds on to water. This increases blood volume, which places pressure on blood vessels with potentially serious consequences. The effect is most severe for people who have high blood pressure (hypertension) but can affect everyone. Excess salt is also linked to other health problems. “Too much salt raises your blood pressure... 50% of all heart disease is due to high blood pressure. It’s a…

5 of the best pizza ovens

1. Gozney Roccbox With a design informed by the company’s background in commercial pizza ovens, it’s well built, safe to touch and looks the business. The thick (30mm) stone gives even base-crisping and it can reach the crucial 500°C, cooking your pizza in 60 seconds. Watch it carefully, though – it’s a fine line between underdone and carbon. Get it right and glory awaits. Heat-up time 20-30 minutes. Best thing Gets that authentic leopard-spot char on the crust. Worst thing The (optional) wood-fired attachment is a tricky customer. £399, (gas canister required) 2. Optima Pizza Express Napoli It may look like a forgotten prototype from the 1970s, but this is an effective little plug-in electric gadget. Made near Modena in Italy (and nothing to do with the UK pizza chain), it’s Ferrari red with a top…

rick on cornish saffron

“Saffron has a long history in Cornwall. It’s not native to the UK, but it’s thought its origins in the county go right back to the Phoenicians (1500-300BC), ancient traders from what is now Lebanon. They’d sail to Cornwall for tin and copper, which they traded for wine, olive oil and, indeed, saffron. Pottery found around Tintagel suggests that the Cornish had Mediterranean produce thousands of years ago. In the series on Cornwall I made last year, I filmed on a saffron farm at Portscatho near St Mawes. I couldn’t get over the exotic scent and purple and yellow hues of the saffron crocuses. Great to know it’s still being grown here.” You can buy Cornish saffron from…
