This one contains saffron - so the challenge is to source this without the aid of the supermarkets - easy we're sure and an excuse to try some different kinds of shops!

  1. I’ve loved “Three Good Things On a Plate” ever since I discovered it last November. Such a simple idea but great results. In our house Ollie and I have made at least one new supper recipe each every single week for about the last five years – not bad for age 52 but it means the cookery books get well used and we’re never in a rut. And that’s not including deserts etc. Eating should always be fun.
