If you have an Aga you have the advantage of not having to bake pastry blind, by cooking quiches and tarts on the floor of the roasting oven, so the pastry cooks through at the same time as the filling.This principle also works in a conventional cooker, saving cooking time and also the messing around with baking beans and grease proof paper!

Mary Kemp's thai green curry and jasmine rice.
Pictures:Sonya Brown

There is something very satisfying about making a curry from scratch; finding the ingredients and creating a flavour that you enjoy or that blows your taste buds with its heat. Some are surprisingly simple, just a base of spices with fresh chillies, onions, tinned tomatoes and coconut milk. Others are much more involved.

EDP Norfolk Magazine. The Lifeboat, Thornham for Dining with David food feature.

To comment about one of the pubs run by the MPW group puts me in an interesting position. Now, Marco Pierre White, the public face of the company, probably hasn’t a clue who I am, but I visited his trendy and successful restaurant in Wandsworth in 1989. At that time I was looking for chairs to sit my clients on at my new restaurant in Norwich. Marco came out and we talked about the ins and outs of our restaurants (presumably Gordon Ramsey was in the kitchen, getting dirty, cleaning down the stoves). He told me he was going to revamp the restaurant and I got the chance to offer to take his chairs off him, so we did a deal and I hired a van and drove down to pick them up. Marco and his girlfriend were there and helped to load up and they were the greatest chairs - lasted me 20 years and saw me into retirement. What a pity we didn’t bring them to Adlard’s In The Country! So, I have this kind of one-sided bond with Marco and have followed his career with elation, surprise and sometimes sadness.
