If you’ve seen our recent TV ad, you’ll be in on our Food Love Story about ‘David’s’ shameful secret: when he met his wife, he fibbed about sharing her love of spicy food. 15 years later, he hasn’t come clean, but he’s still making his wife her favourite curry – with a sneaky dollop of cooling yogurt for him.
Sometimes it’s the undemandingly easy, everyday recipes that deliver the most joy. For ‘Iain’ and his dad, from our Food Love Story, it’s croque monsieur. They first had it on a joint trip to France and, since then, it’s become their favourite weekend lunch. ‘Iain’s’ made a few changes to it along the way (bonjour, wafer-thin roast turkey) – but for him and his dad, it’s most definitely ‘proper’.
