5.0 out of 5 stars behaving badly as Boris, 6 Nov 2013
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
An essential piece of kit for every budding Sociopath. Upon donning this mask you will be able to arrange for the beating up of your enemies, have extra marital sex with every woman that crosses your path, sire children by them, lie, cheat and steal and have really bad hair whilst evading all known justice- moral. legal and natural.

5.0 out of 5 stars next best thing to fresh, 16 Oct 2013
I have yet to buy a duff product from this company. My cupboard is full of their little foil packets; they don't go off for ages either. A company that clearly puts as much thought into the provenance and authenticity of its ingredients and blends as it does into its beautiful packaging.

Makes a fabulous Stocking filler for cooks or a full blown gift if you buy a whole set of them. I would be thrilled to receive any of their products.

Having grown up in Mexico I am pretty hard to please when it comes to claims of authenticity. Seasoned Pioneers never let me down. I particularly love the Adobe Rub for seasoning all manner of meats, fish and even vegetables but have yet to buy a duff product from them. My cupboard is full of their little foil packets; they don't go off for ages either.

1.0 out of 5 stars reactionary, ignorant and incompetent economics, 2 Sep 2013
What a shame for other reviewers arguments about Jamie being 'right' about awful nutritional values of ready meals/products when some of JO's pasta sauces and ready meals contain very high salt and sugar levels.

Yes JO- slag off people for shopping in supermarkets and buying processed food whilst flogging them said foodstuffs from a supermarket. even worse, take millions of pounds from one of them-Sainsbury's to promote it.

Despicable hypocrite of a man, JO is. If you want to see what true charity and altruism is take a leaf out of Camilla Batmanhelidjh's book, 'mate'. The only thing JO is interested in is his own bank account and fame. Nothing wrong with that except when you bolt on a 'social agenda' that is nothing more than an excuse to offer hateful, prejudiced and ill informed soundbites to a right wing press. Ugh.

And educate yourself on the reality of cooking and eating in Southern Europe where the increase in food prices, decrease in supply and distribution of fresh food, changing demographics and culture and the rise of fast food, processed and packaged food means JO's outdated overly romantic views about 'Cucina Povera' are no longer relevant. Research the initiatives taking place in Spain to feed thousands of people who are unemployed and starving. They are NOT eating better in this mythical land of 'being poor but supposedly eating better' that JO witters on about. Chefs run those initiatives without self aggrandising and without making ugly, discriminatory and ignorant sound bites.

One last comment JO. Please do stop referring to nationalities such as the Poles and Lithuanians as 'Our Lithuanian/Polish friends'. At best you sound like a 'well meaning' UKIP councillor. At worst, an insightless racist.

1.0 out of 5 stars Balsamic Di Modena she is not, 21 Feb 2013
This review is from: Mutton (Hardcover)
In the case of Balsamic Vinegar,Iberico Ham, Parmiggiano Reggiano and Middleton Whisky, maturity and eventually great age can bring about sublimeness. However in the case of India Knight and her writing, this is not the case. Knight is becoming a sour and frightened pastiche of herself and her style of self mined 'faction' is coming along for the ride. A VERY light read indeed (maybe one for a sleep on the beach as opposed to a read for one) but what can we expect from a journalist whose 'shock-hack tactics have resorted to referring to those folks with psychiatric illnesses as 'mentals'?
