was also a time when everyone involved in cooking, whether
they were just a keen amateur, a busy mum, a grandmother
with a lifetime of kitchen experience or a professional
chef just starting a career in the kitchen or one who
was an old hand working at the stove, was happy to share
recipes so others could enjoy them.

become blurred or disappeared over the years but the
recipes are still worthwhile either in their own right
or for the inspiration they might give.
is a fabulous side dish for eating with anything grilled
or barbecued whether it is fish or meat. It is very
easy to prepare and can be prepared in advance and re-warmed
or prepared and eaten straight away. All ingredients
can be varied according to taste. The recipe is for
3 portions (or 2 if you really like it).
