oh what a lovely pear

The pear is extremely underrated and under appreciated compared to its rival, the apple, what with tarte tatin, cider and 'one a day' in their favour. However, there is something old fashioned and comforting about a pear. It's soft, gritty texture and that sweet sweet taste. Wonderful!

a salad or three

I love Jamie Oliver for his no fuss approach. He gets stuck in and everything is doable. Everything looks delicious. You can sense the flavours wafting off the screen. On his latest 'Jamie does..' he 'did' France. Now I'm a sucker for everything French. I'm obsessed with the country and they know about food. Even the children from an early age. I doubt if you asked an English kid to point out an aubergine they would succeed and we are the ones with the weight problems not them. Think about it!
