Its cream on first sorry…unless you’re from Cornwall and then yes, you’d be forgiven for putting the jam on first. Anyone notice the Queen in ‘The Crown’ does cream on first in Season 2? The cream is the butter.

Here is an idea to recycle insulation from the box – I joined 4 panels using zigzag stitch on my sewing machine and used the insulation as wadding for a quilted picnic rug. This rug has been washed and held its shape/structure. People who sew might like to know this, or even contact a local quilters group who make quilts for charity – they might be interested in upcyclng the insulation as wadding.

When I cook pork belly for my family and friends (once a month), I always have the butcher trim out the bones but I keep them to use as a rest for the pork belly in the oven. I also place cloves of garlic (skin on) under the meat as well. The garlic and the additional cooked ribs make a nice side dish.

Greer says:

What a great idea David! Talk about maximising flavour.

Diego Sanchez says:

When you write that this recipe is “…entirely paired back” you may want to consider the word “pared” instead. If you’re a journalist, that is. Cheers.

Dylan says:
