the recipe works
14 January 2003 | by (Austin TX) – See all my reviews

This is not only a fun Red Dwarf bit, but a useful one too!

I have used the recipe quite a few times, and it is good! Word of warning though, don't try to cook while watching it (and who can cook when you are laughing?). Get the ingredients and instructions down on paper first.
