Food's latest hot trend: leftovers

14 December 2012 4:01 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Our modern obsession with beautiful food – and reliance on ready meals when short of time – has led to huge waste. Is it time to put leftovers back on the table?

It's half past three and lunch is drawing to a close. The long dining room of 32 Great Queen Street in London's Covent Garden is three-quarters empty, with just a few diners left drinking coffee or finishing off bottles of wine. One large, noisy party at the end, nearest the open-plan kitchen remains, as the restaurant staff sit down at last to feed themselves.

The meal is freshly cooked, but often put together from leftovers. Staff meals are made from cuts of meat or bits of veg that haven't found a spot on this week's menu. Chef Tom Norrington-Davies makes a point of using things up: when his London restaurant opened five years ago, with its deliberately unfancy decor, sparse furnishings and reasonable prices, »

'Rude' chefs leave sour taste for Madhur Jaffrey

31 October 2012 6:36 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Delhi-born actor is returning to the small screen with a 10-part series on the Good Food channel

The new generation of "rude" television chefs is not to the taste of Madhur Jaffrey, who is returning to the small screen three decades after her groundbreaking BBC series Indian Cookery.

Jaffrey, the Delhi-born actor and presenter who has written more than 30 cookbooks, said she was unimpressed by the antics of some of the new breed of celebrity chefs. "I couldn't be that rude to people, if only because I wouldn't like it done to me," she told the new issue of Radio Times.

The world of TV cuisine has changed in the 17 years since Jaffrey presented her last BBC cookery show, The Flavours of India. Back then Gordon Ramsay, tutored by another tough-talking TV chef, Marco Pierre White, had yet to open his first restaurant. So familiar is Ramsay's post-watershed style »
