Pippa Middleton has a nice bum but I wouldn’t trust her if I had six people coming to dinner. Turns out this week’s shocker wasn’t the Pope leaving James Bond-like in a helicopter or Jennifer Lawrence’s trip up the Oscar stairs, it was Waitrose appointing Pippa as its new food columnist.
Those of us who worship on the altar of Delia Smith are somewhat miffed. I got my first copy of Delia back in 1982 and although the cover has fallen off and the chocolate recipe pages are covered in chocolate, I would not be without her. She is always there with sensible advice, recipes that work and a Dunkirk spirit.
I wouldn’t mind Pippa as a dinner guest, but please, stay out of the kitchen!
