The controversy around Delia's new recipes
on cheating cheap ingredients
- tinned meat, frozen chickpeas -
is really to do with her conception
of 'the people'. She wants to teach
in the same way that she gives
the beautiful game to Norwich City fans.
When she worries that they will pelt her
with tomatoes & eggs now she hopes
they didn't take her advice & buy frozen.
"The good thing about the newspapers
is that they are used for tomorrow's
fish n' chips" - shows how removed
she is from the true culinary expediency.
If I was a middle-class fish I would
probably sue for bad speculation.
