welcome to october

It was a day I won’t forget. Back in March, Delia got in touch to say she’d just picked up a copy of delicious. and read it from cover to cover. “I love it,” she said. “It has its own lively personality. It somehow reaches the reader and makes them feel included.” It took me a while to recover after reading that. First of all, I’ve always seen Delia as my own secret adviser in the kitchen (that’s how, through her books, she managed to make us all feel, wasn’t it?). Second, she understood our delicious. goals so well: inclusivity, warmth, inspiration and the passing on of skills – never in a bossy way. That was just the beginning. There was a lunch. A visit was planned. We painted the loos.…

Waste not… Nearly a decade ago delicious. began its We Love Knobbly Veg campaign to challenge stores to sell less-than-perfect fresh produce. The initiative was largely ignored. How times have changed – and now chef Tristan Welch (left) has launched Rubbish Cooks, a series of supper clubs at his Parker’s Tavern restaurant in Cambridge. Guests pay a £20 cover charge – £5 of which will be donated to charity Jimmy’s Night Shelter – and everything on the three-course menu will be what’s normally considered ‘waste’, transformed by Tristan’s expertise. Go, Tristan! Bookings: enquiries@ THE SUPER-EASY RECIPE Sticky salted caramel apples SERVES 4. READY IN 10 MIN Melt 30g unsalted butter in a non-stick frying pan.

SUBJECT: A FAR CRY FROM SEMOLINA FROM: KIRSTEN I’d previously failed to persuade my husband that polenta was nothing like his schoolboy memories of ‘frogspawn’ semolina puddings, but Gill Meller’s roast tomatoes and aubergines with wet polenta [Aug, p42] did the trick. It was made with heritage tomatoes from our ‘local’ greengrocer (eight miles from home in rural Wales). He asked: “When are we having it again?” What YOU’VE been making... @catching.crumbs Tahini, brown butter and sea salt blondies JOIN OUR NEW READER PANEL and have more of a say in your favourite magazine.

STAR EMAIL FROM: CLAIRE BURR As a food teacher of 22 years, I’m proud of our role in promoting food to young people. Ms Robinson has taken isolated points and mistakenly applied them as fact across the country. Teachers have to consider a number of factors regarding recipes: 1) Lesson time: some schools have reduced lesson time significantly, so teachers have to simplify recipes to focus on a specific skill. Being asked to bring in tinned fruit for a crumble may have meant the focus of the lesson was teaching how to rub in. In a 50-minute lesson, most students would not be able to weigh out, rub in, prepare fruit, cook, clear up and be ready for their next class; hence the use of prepared fruit. 2) Over-reliance on a specific ingredient: we…

1449 George Plantagenet was born on 21 October. He was a key figure in the War of the Roses but met a sticky end in his late 20s. Accused of treason against his brother, King Edward IV, he reputedly drowned in a butt of malmsey wine. 1889 The Moulin Rouge cabaret opened in Paris on 6 October and the champagne flowed freely. So freely, in fact, that the club earned a Guinness World Record for getting through 240,000 bottles of fizz every year. 1952 Tea rationing came to an end, allowing Brits to enjoy unlimited cuppas for the first time in 12 years – good news for a nation that then consumed a third of all the tea produced in the world. 1966 On 10 October, Simon & Garfunkel released their album Parsley,…
