A bad taste in the mouth

So one of the casualties of the cuts being enforced on the Beeb by the Tories is the BBC Food website - justifiably described by Dan Lepard, one of the chefs who has contributed recipes to the site, as an "extraordinary, world-class archive". Mumsnetters are among those up in arms at the decision to close the site - and I too am very disappointed, having found it a great resource to have at your fingertips when in possession of random ingredients and but devoid of inspiration. The sheer number of users, reviewers and comments make it a site you can really trust. Here's hoping that either there's a change of heart or the existing archive is preserved in its entirety, at least.
