The esteemed Dr Lawrence Napper has given me a tip off that on Saturday night there will be a tribute to Novello at the Proms and it will be shown on tele. He suggests that fans of the divine Ivor might like to rustle up his dish to accompany events. I haven’t tried this one myself so let me know how it turns out for you.
Boil a dozen small artichokes until almost fully cooked, place them in a flat dish. Make a white sauce liberally flavoured with cheese, pour over the artichokes and sprinkle with cornflakes on top and place in the oven until the surface is well browned. This makes a very good extra dish for 4 to 6 people.
I’m off to gather lilacs in the springtime…
