I do love receiving surprise packages but my joy often turns to disappointment when I find the package contains some techy bike gear my husband has ordered or a present for one of the kids rather than something actually for me. But no, this time it really was for me – a package from Prodirectrunning : a

I didn’t want the day to pass without mentioning the sad death of Keith Floyd. Keith Floyd’s Floyd on France was the first recipe book I ever bought (and I own a few!) and I think his TV programme which accompanied the book was probably the first cookery programme I ever watched. To me his was an inspiration, a proper cook who always had a nice glass of wine to hand and gave the impression of cooking by feel, with a splash and a dash of this and that, rather than confining himself to strict measurements. He clearly loved food and absolutely adored what he did. Despite his splash and dash approach his recipes are always very clear, to the point and easy-to-follow, avoiding the wordy waffle you get in some cookbooks. I still remember making his unbelievably delicious pate de truites for the first dinner I cooked my parents in my first flat- a layered pate of trout and salmon with Moselle wine, fragrant fresh herbs like chervil and parsley, eggs and cream, all wrapped in flaky pastry and served with a butter sauce. Just gorgeous….but definitely for a treat only as, unfortunately, it is absolutely stuffed with saturated fat!
His blog shows just what a fun, nice chap he must have been -

I’ve been invited onto Radio Bristol’s Dinner party Hour on Saturday morning (9-10 if anyone’s interested!). I’ve got to choose 4 people, dead or alive, that I’d like to invite to dinner, what I’d serve to eat and drink and what music I’d play.

This is a bit of a ‘cheatie’ tagine, but it is incredibly quick and easy, very very tasty and packed with goodness. All you need to do is pop the chicken in the oven, surround it with some nice vegatables and spices, maybe something tasty that might be lurking in the fridge like a few green olives and hey presto, an hour later you have a delicious and healthy meal for four. We ate it last night with Basmati and wild rice, a good low G.I. option for sustained energy…and it seems that the whole family needs that extra little boost of energy at the moment what with the end of term rush with the kids, the launch of Go Faster Food and our new training schedule for the
