But two weeks ago I took a deep breath and clicked the relevant buttons on Amazon . . . and last week it arrived. I think I have found my next favourite cookery book that will take its place alongside Delia's books, Jack Monroe's book and the one book by Nigel Slater that I have. It's full of wise, sensible advice, rather delicious looking (and achievable) recipes and helpful information. There's one bit I particularly love, in the section about waste and the issue of offness, written by Allegra McEvedy which says:
'Just to clear it up, there are two dates you will see on products: the Sell By and the Use By. Sell by is when it must leave the shop. Use By is when it should leave your life. For legal reasons I can't say much here, but in my experience the Use By date has a bit of built in flexibility.'
Such wise words at a time when there is an obscene amount of waste because of these perishing (no pun intended) dates!
Go on, treat yourself!
