And her pronunciation of so many now everyday ingredients drives me insane, for example Balsamic (ballsarmic) Tarragon…etc  :angry:

I seems to me she wants to create her own Delia dictionary

She may just have an accent. which is something we can't really criticise her for. Personally I find Nigel Slater's way of talking very irritating, but I like to think he isn't camping it up deliberately.

that delia show and new book and the overwhelming response it had, once again proved to me that although UK has some of the best and most expensive restaurants in the world, the average quality of food that is cooked at bristish homes is still awful... I think it will take many many years for the love and care for food to reach the masses, in a similar way that it is in mediteranean countries, and elswhere.
