This is a message for possibly the best supporters in the world. We need a 12th man. Where are you? Where are you?
Food is for eating, and good food is to be enjoyed... I think food is, actually, very beautiful in itself.
Football and cookery are the two most important subjects in this country
It was a spontaneous appeal from the heart. Maybe in the heat of the moment I didn't choose the best words [on a rant at Norwich fans to be more passionate]
My message is, as it alway has been, moderation: meat as a main course on three days a week, eggs on one, fish on one other and some form of vegetarian meal on the rest constitute a perfectly acceptable, interesting and varied diet.
I found in my whole career the best thing that can happen to you is that you hear what people want.
There are people who claim to be instinctive cooks, who never follow recipes or weigh anything at all. All I can say is they're not very fussy about what they eat. For me, cooking is an exact art and not some casual game.
I sometimes think the chef end of cooking is not the real end of cooking. Cooking is all about homes and gardens, it doesn't happen in restaurants.
Although a food processor is not an absolutely essential piece of equipment, because you can certainly chop, grate, slice, knead and mix everything by hand, it does do all these things very quickly and efficiently and saves you time and energy.
In 35 years of being in the media, I've had all this mud flung at me many, many times. It's not the first time. It's nothing unusual. I've been through it all before and the best way to deal with it is not to read them.
There are three reasons why this book came into being. First, throughout the 33 years I've been writing recipes - although I'm not vegetarian myself - I have greatly enjoyed creating vegetarian recipes, and cooking and serving them at home.
But quite honestly I can't help being a passionate football supporter. If that's my sin, I'm guilty.
Memories are fallible and a timer can save a lot of hard work from going out of the window.
Getting into the habit of switching a timer on will, I promise, save you from any number of kitchen disasters.
A cake is a very good test of an oven: if it browns too much on one side and not on the other, it's not your fault - you need to have your oven checked.
