About 3 weeks ago I got an email.
In it was this: “Dear Chefs” it began… oh thats not me I’m not a chef. Er, yes my name is there on the list. “You will each produce 833 portions of healthy, nutritious, & tasty food with waste vegetables, 2 litres of rapeseed oil, in 3 pots, in 4 hours with help from some volunteers. Please send us your recipes.” I began to whimper. So much so that Hugh intervened and I had to admit that I’d said one “yes” too many. He laughed very hard, at me, and I suppose so did I. This was going to be a challenge. After a few recipe trials I made my very simple food decisions and sat back.
