“Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other.
Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.”

I’m hoping that LOTS of people test Katharine’s Eggplant recipe so I can populate the blog with her wonderful quotes.

As I am not a fan of the eggplant (aubergine to us Brits) I’m very happy that Gloria in Bristol has had a go at this one for us. It’s one of the few veggie options lined up for the book – those stars sure liked their meat so it’s slim pickings for the non-carnivores. Interestingly, Gloria made the eggplant dish as an accompaniment to grilled lamb steaks and prounounced it “utterly deliciously buttery”.

With a flair quite befitting of someone I met on a cookery writing course, Gloria made two versions of the dish. One, as per Katherine’s recipe, and a second “jooshed up” with pistachio nuts and crumbled feta. To my great joy, Gloria perferred the ‘silver screen’ version – hurrah!
