different ways raw, cooked, marinated, lightly
pickled - theres so much more to beetroot than

from our childhood.

Mark Hix says: Smoked anchovies are quite
rare, quite delicious and very expensive. The Narden
brand from Spain is sold by Brindisa in Borough Market,
London SE1, or the shop in Exmouth Market, London EC1
(020-7407 1036, www.brindisa.com)
and other delis such as Rick Stein's in Padstow. They
come in a can and have a short shelf-life, but taste
as if freshly smoked. If you are struggling to find
them, this recipe will work with good-quality canned
or marinated anchovies but of course you won't get the
smoky quality. You could also try smoked mackerel or
