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.
