    Top Kitchen Hacks

    Presenter, Food Critic

    The new series of The Kitchen Cabinet (Radio 4's culinary panel show that aims to change the way you think about food, cooking and eating) begins in a new Saturday morning slot from 9 May. Here's a taster...

    With huge generosity and dollops of good taste the powers at Radio 4 have decided that The Kitchen Cabinet should have a new slot on Saturday mornings at 10.30am. Obviously I'm delighted we can now share with a bigger audience the greed, killer cooking tips, and useless, arcane but completely compelling foodie knowledge - both historical and scientific - guaranteed to make any good dinner party swing, finally removing the need to put your car keys in a pot in the middle of the table.
    To celebrate the move to Saturdays I’ve put together a list of the top tips from the first episode of this series, recorded in Liverpool.

    I give you The Kitchen Cabinet’s top #KitchenHacks Enjoy.
