Good Housekeeping magazine can do no wrong” was proven further when Geoff and Tom invited me out for an exceptionally delicious and cheery lunch. The pudding was so pretty I took a photo before inhaling it and, yes, it tasted as good as it looks. They showed me round the offices to meet Lindsay and on to the famous kitchen where all the testing, demonstrations & co are done. It’s been host to famous chefs and the photo I’ve taken is dreadful, possibly due to the rose at lunchtime… My added treat was a rummage through the goody basket to behold a jar of snail gel which didn’t quite make a photo-shoot. I was worryingly thrilled, but as yet haven’t managed to apply it to my skin. Am all for eating insects if you’re so inclined but, perhaps due to the facts there’s been a genocide in my tiny garden this summer, guilt may be a factor? Not sure, perhaps “snail gel” as a name isn’t enticing….? Either way it still sits in my bedroom awaiting use – again couldn’t resist sharing it.
