Deptford Squat Stir-Fry, Etc.

Here is a list I never thought I would be included in : General Sir Richard Dannatt… Susannah York… Rt Hon Sir John Major… Prunella Scales… Frederick Forsyth… Sir Michael Caine… Sir Richard Branson… Joanna Lumley… Nicholas Parsons… Stephen Fry… Frank Key. Oo-er, missus!

Your favourite impoverished scribbler is in this august company as a contributor to that recipe book I was telling you about a few weeks ago, in connection with my participation in a broadcast by Phil Minton’s Feral Choir. Mr Minton’s recipe, Deptford Squat Stir-Fry, is truly sensational.

The book is Able To Cook, and all proceeds go to the charities Age UK Norfolk and Connects & Co. I command, by diktat, all readers to go here, immediately, and buy a copy.


My thanks to R., by the way.

  1. I’m trying to guess which recipe you have contributed… might it be gruel or perhaps boiled-cormorant? In any case I shall be ordering this important reference tome.

  2. Oh no,


    I have sworn a terrifying oath never to knowingly own anything that is, or includes, the work of Mr. S. Fry.

    I know!
    I’ll buy the book and tear out any pages by him.

    Problem solved.

    O.S.M. B:52

  3. It may be that Mr. Key’s recipe provides us with a method of dealing with these unwelcome pages by Mr. Fry.
