“Even though my career has spanned radio and TV, I have always been interested in cooking and food (tell me someone who isn't!) I got my first cookbook on my 7th birthday with a cool, matching Snoopy apron. I have been wowed by all creations with food ever since. So¬†Fresh In The Kitchen was borne with that in mind.

There is nothing better than great food and good company and that is what Fresh in the Kitchen is all about. Excellent recipes, tips and food finds that make life easier and more pleasureable.“

Oh, and with this recipe there is but one rule: 1 glass for the pudd, 1 for the cook....
