Quite a special week-end last week as my friend Aude, who write the blog épices et compagnie, was visiting us. I might as well say that this involved some serious business talk, by which I obviously mean cooking. When she left there were coobooks and magazines all over the place, you see, that we pulled out along our greedy chit chat. The duet cooking was great too, as it doesn’t happen to me very often.
The night of Aude’s arrival, there was a Delia Smith recipe to start with: pan-grilled halloumi drizzled with a tasty green dressing. It came from Delia’s Summer Collection but it’s in delicious. magazine (July issue) that I came across it, in an article called Delia’s Summer Classics. I realised in the process that Jamie was therefore not the one who must have introduced the British to their first olive oil bottle, but most probably Delia.
