"Food and Drink"

I have very fond memories of watching this program as a kid with my parents and was very happy to see it return and even happier to see M. Roux Jr presenting.
I missed last weeks but have smiled my way through this weeks with Mary Berry - what a lovely program! This week we saw madelaines and creme patissiere tarts for an afternoon tea with Prosecco and English sparkling wine (and tea!), pieces on real bread and french patisserie and Michel making an apple tart.
And baking marge won a blind taste test over butter with a victoria sponge.
Anyone else enjoying this?
Long may it continue.

Although it seems to lean heavily towards the participation of the celebs of the industry.
that is about the food rather than about the presenter.
I have two other negative comparisions with the older format. Firstly, it is no longer a topical show - surely you would have expected some mention of horsemeat. And, in Jilly Goolden's day, she would have been telling you exactly what wine she was suggesting, where you could buy it and how much.

Another top recession busting tip of putting the oven on to refresh half a leftover baguette too....
They are delicious.
