Delia deals out the chicken shit to Jamie Oliver and Co!

Delia Smith was once the butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth pin-up cookery queen of the BBC. She came up with all sorts of wholesome food, described in rather bossy tones. No drooling over the food like the Barefoot Contessa!

Now Queen Delia has decided to cash in on what she delicately calls cookery cheating. The supermarkets and food producers are all over her like a rash. She's not cheating on spreading her favours though. They all get equal measures. She's got some great idea about making a shepherd's pie, which was topped with frozen mashed potato from the Aunt Bessie's range. Heinz, who make this, are predicting a rise in sales and are highly excited. Delia claims she's not benifiting from the supermarket sales. Maybe not directly, but via some sort of circuitous route to her coffers, no doubt!

But the real rub is that she poo poo's the stance of Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall in campaigning against chicken cruelty. "I'll stick to teaching people to cook. I can't get into the politics of food." No, maybe not, but she can certainly make a buck or two from some poor clucker's misfortune to have spent it's life in a cage!


Money, money, money..... it's a rather plain girl from Norwich's world......

Hello, Alfie! What I don't follow is that she has turned summersaults here. Gone are the fresh ingredients in favour of E numbers, tin food food and cheap chicken!

Hardly quality to my mind!
