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.
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.
I have sworn a terrifying oath never to knowingly own anything that is, or includes, the work of Mr. S. Fry.
I’ll buy the book and tear out any pages by him.
It may be that Mr. Key’s recipe provides us with a method of dealing with these unwelcome pages by Mr. Fry.
… and my thanks to Mr K.
