Say cheese

Some fruitcake's made a replica of the Wallace and Grommit outfit, tried out by a good friend and writer Mike Lewis for the Daily Torygraph - only odd thing is he didn't mention the elephant in the room - why use a BSA (and leave it badged as such) for the replica when the "real thing" was a Triumph?

The obsession Wallace has with cheese in the films reminded me of an Italian twist - don't know if it's true, but I was told that the success of Camozola was down to the Nazis trying to integrate Italian and French culture under occupation: it's basically a mix of Camembert and Gorgonzola. The German's aren't famous for their cooking (unless you like sausages and cabbage
But German cakes are fab - which reminds me: Teas and Cakes this Saturday, 7th May: I know the Met Office are grumbling it might rain, but we've had none for well over a month. The lawn is very brown...
