I bought the book today, on first glance there are several things I am going to have a go at. I also liked the not-at-all-subtle dig at Gordon Ramsay in the Introduction.

Thwarted! Goddamit. Would a note from my mum count? No? Ok, I concede.

Has anyone tried his Guardian recipes (sans lamb meatballs)?

Nigel Slater's chocolate recipes are causing me to drool and I'd like to veganize them.

Squash stuffed with leaks (page 40)

Substituted all the dairy with Oatly cream. I used Harlequin squashes which have a sweet potato/chestnut texture and are one of my favourites (Spaghetti squash is another). Recipe worked well, although I found it a very rich dish and was absolutely stuffed after greedily eating all of it even though the squash was quite a small one. I might be tempted to brown the leaks a little more if I tried this recipe again. Simple to make and very satisfying, must hunt some more squashes to store away

I made the Pinto Bean Chilli, and very nice it was too. I left out the courgettes (because they are of the Devil) and substituted more pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe. Easy to make and most of the stuff I had in the cupboard.

I made the North African Squash and Chickpea Stew from the book yesterday, it was absolutely delicious. I am quite impressed with the recipes so far.

I made the cauliflower pakoras with tamarind raita today - it was okay, but not quite spicy enough for my tastes - I'll put some hotter spices in it next time.

not impressed with a bunch of people cheering out on a boat when a vegetarian woman of 10+ years ate a piece of raw fish on tonight's episode.
i mean, when it comes down to it, it's her choice what she eats but it angers me that this kind of thing appears to be cause for celebration amongst people, almost like they're all "yeah, we rescued another lost soul" type attitude. ugh.


(sorry, i'm just particularly sensitive about people going back to being omnivores because a lot of my close friends have started eating fish and/or meat again recently).

Yeah, there's definitely more dickishness about vegetarianism this week. How disappointing. I really struggle to understand what place a fishing trip has in a series about vegetable cooking - particularly when the whole thing was set up as a "temptation beyond endurance" - it's just so dull to see the same stupid, ignorant stereotypes creeping back in. Losing the love for this series now.

I haven't seen the TV programme yet, and now I don't think I'll bother.

it seems to me like it's a very conscious attempt by the programme makers to send out the message that it's NOT a series about being vegetarian, even probably going so far as to attempt to trivialise or even discredit ethical vegetarians.
it's a shame that any complaints any of us may raise about it will more than likely fall on deaf ears.

since i was able to buy 4 different types of beetroot in Unicorn today, i made the beetroot tarte tatin from the very first programme of the series. dunno what it's like yet though as we're having it for lunch tomorrow on a trip to the seaside, but i'll probably blog about it in a day or two. it looks awesome though!

Haha didn't you SEE the first episode? I wouldn't class a bacon sandwich as filling, but maybe bacon is way more filling than I imagine it to be.

I was pretty annoyed by last week's episode and the fishing incident with the vegetarian, but this week's episode was much more positive I felt.

Okay, I only just got around to watching last weeks episode, it was pretty annoying. I know HFW will never be a vegetarian but I thoughthis reasons for doing the show and book were both meaningful and sincere. The whole episode just kind of undermined that.

And for fork's sake, the look of childish self satisfaction and wonder on that veggie's face when she ate the fish! If I ever found myself questioning my morals, I don't think id be changing them on tv, even if I didn't care what people thought of ME, but for the sake of all the other veggies/vegans/ whatever out there.

The zen Buddhist family without a fridge had some tasty looking food though!

I can't stand them; they have no redeeming features AT ALL.
