Tomorrow I join weight watchers and expect Cooking in the Cave to take a different turn. Therefore, I present for the first and last time, my official favourite meal in all its simply glory for the rest of you to be disgusted by. If you are repulsed by what follows, remind yourself how many people in the world struggle to eat at all.
I got into this meal in my mid-twenties in Cardiff. I’d eat it and then go swimming directly afterwards in the 50 metre pool that was demolished to make way for the Millenium Stadium. Truthfully, I’d been eating a basic pasta dish ever since I spent six weeks in Italy aged 15 but somehow it only became an addiction when combined with swimming two to three miles twice a week. Sadly in recent years it has been combined with sitting around reading law or learning computer coding, with the result that I have grown to be obese.
You can watch this lesson in modest eating in better quality too.
