Despite increasing numbers of celebrity chefs, cooking shows and campaigns to improve the nation’s diet, research reveals that 27% of Brits still don’t feel confident in the kitchen. In fact, one in 10 of us admit we simply can’t remember the ingredients for British classics such as Yorkshire puddings.
But help is at hand, as supermarket chain Morrisons has created the UK’s first ‘Food Laureate’, to provide the nation with simple poems to help them prepare their favourite dishes.
What’s more, the poems along with filmed live demonstrations will be available on www.morrisons.co.uk/foodlaureate
and Morrisons is challenging the nation to share its own rhyming recipes, to add to the collection.
In this video, chef Peter Sidwell shows how rhyme can help cook the classic British dish, fish and chips.
