Lorraine Pascale: How to Be a Better Cook review – too basic for Britain?
If you’re someone who looks at the food programmes Authentic Prada Handbags Wholesale on TV – all the fancy techniques and jargon – and thinks, nah, can’t be dealing with that, then Lorraine Pascale’s How to Be a Better Authentic Prada Wallet For Sale Philippines Cook (BBC2) could be one for you.
Lorraine is showing unconfident cooks how to make a nice three-course meal. She begins with a likable 52-year-old builder named Tony, who has only ever made cheese on toast before. That’s all.
So for starters, she shows him how to do a Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Messenger Bag grilled peach and burrata salad. They cut up the peach, then put the pieces in Authentic Prada Leather Handbags the pan to heat up. That’s the grilling part. Salad dressing next, which is made with oil and vinegar, and a little mustard and honey. “See, we’re cooking,” says Lorraine, encouragingly. “This is cooking!”
Is it, though? Is making a salad dressing actually cooking? Anyway, they Amazon Uk Prada Bags place the pieces of grilled peaches on a plate, then pull apart a burrata (mozzarella with cream inside – Lorraine likes her cream) and scatter that around. Finally the dressing is drizzled over the top (drizzle, incidentally, means to pour in a very Agatha Ruiz Dela Prada Dresses Uk thin stream). And there you have it. It maybe isn’t a showstopper, Are Prada Trainers Made In Vietnam but it’s a starter nevertheless.
It does get a bit more complicated. For the main, About Prada Products a piece of salmon is cooked in a similar way to the peaches. There are polenta chips and asparagus.

It does look quite good, Are Prada Handbags Cheaper In Italy to be fair; Tony’s friends are certainly impressed. There are tears. But this is very basic cookery.
Now, I like simple cooking, and I’m not a food snob replica prada shoulder bags, but even I am a bit beyond this. Are there really enough Tonies around for a salad dressing lesson to be a useful television programme?
Next week: Lorraine opens a tin of peaches, and adds a dollop of cream to really wow the guests.
