In discussion with the webmaster, it was decided that it is easier for people to reply to "BLOGS" on this page than on the Blog itself. What we want to find out is if any of you have a favourite home cooked meals that you would like to share with other villagers. A national survey has shown that 70% of the countries families eat out or from a cardboard box put in a microwave oven.

There was a time when this village pulled together as one for the welfare of all. Who knows maybe this village can start a National Trend and get back to Basics in the Kitchen.

Just think: "COOKHAM THE COUNTRY COOKING CENTRE"

I think recipes would be a good idea. The WI did a recipe book a while back for Cookham Summer FM which was really good. They had recipes from all sorts of people. On the other hand if 70% of us don't bother to cook most people won't be interested in them. I notice that the celeb chef programmes seem to have reduced somewhat along with the garden makeovers and buying property abroad, it now seems what to wear is the in thing

Thank you Craddock. First of all we know that a lot of people are taking the easy way out when it comes to food. To a couple of posters it is "Boring" Boring or not, food you have to eat to survive and what you eat actualy shapes not only your body, but your attitude to life as well. When the cost of eating hits you hard in your wallet. Then it will have to be back to basics.

And remember, James, 'Empty vessels make the most noise'. Perhaps you're in danger of becoming a little too ubiquitous for some people's taste? It's been a while since these boards were so monopolised.

It has just crossed my mind! "Has anyone had any succulent SPOTTED DICK lately coated with Tate & Lyles syrup?"

Does anyone know what "SPOTTED DICK" is?, and how it is made?

Spotted Dick has CUSTARD with it not Tate & Lyle syrup. You can put it on treacle pudding if you like. James, just to let you know all these comfort foods are very in at the moment and are available all over the place not to mention popping up on various TV food show.
