Quote of the day

"Incidentally, the word 'curry' first appears from a cookery book during the reign of, I think it’s Richard II, 13th century. So don’t let people tell you that you have to have huge numbers of immigrants to have good cooking."

No, Delia hasn't gone all racist on us - this is Nick Griffin, starring as a chef on a cookery programme on BNP TV. Among his other pearls of wisdom was "Do take the tin foil off your stock cubes" - learned that from bitter experience, did you Nick? Following his recipes no doubt leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

(Incidentally, I love the still with which the Independent article is illustrated: Griffin looking utterly baffled and a bit disgusted by a potato.)
