Chopstick training time!

I’ve written quite a few times about how much MGG loves her Chinese food, and she’s not bad with chopsticks. But you don’t just go from nothing to using chopsticks straight away. My local Chinese first off had a wad of paper and an elastic band round a set for her, and then we found some good training ones that were joined at the top.

And now I’ve found these:

 

Love them, and there are a whole range of dinosaurs and also farmyard animals, marine life like dolphins and lobsters, and zoo favourites like lions and elephants. These are currently listed at £1.75 a go, and I just think they’re a perfect way to get kids interested in eating with them, which might also get them turned onto Chinese food.

And even I fancy a pair or two of these! Buy online now from Cooking Time, a great source for interesting stuff.

MGG does The Field Kitchen – take two

If you were quick, you may briefly have read my vicarious review of MGG’s lunch at The Field Kitchen at Riverford. Sadly, there was a glitch on the blog and I had to restore to the previous day’s version. Which wiped it out.

I could try and rewrite it, but the original is always the best! Just to say she had an amazingly wonderful lunch that she hasn’t stopped talking about to anyone who will listen. I take it on her recommendation that if you are near the area, or can make the detour, it is worth booking for! If not, then order up the cookbook and invite everyone round for some communal dining.

What can you expect? Well, without being able to taste it, then perhaps it’s best to let some photos do the talking. These are all MGG’s, so a little leeway on the focus is allowed! See if these stimulate your appetite!
