It looks tastier at an angle


For a landlubber, watching Delia Smith’s latest television series, “How To Open Cans And Empty Them Into A Pan” must be more tedious than watching a snake tackle a Rubix cube. However, to a sailor, the food probably looked familiar.

In fact, had Delia filmed it in a small, cramped galley, heeling at 45 degrees while beating out of the Western Approaches, not only would the food appear more appetising, (at least to those not suffering from seasickness), but the public wouldn’t be quite so quick to complain that, actually, all she did was open cans and empty them into a pot.

It might even open up a whole new market!
