One wedding and a stack of organic food

Charles_camillaIt should've come as no surprise that Charles and Camilla's wedding cake was organic - he is, after all, probably the UK's best known bloke championing organic food. He's also, as foodies will testify, the hawker of a damn good range of foodstuffs called Duchy Originals. Now I'm a republican at heart and find it a bit galling that Charles' business gets subsidised by the UK taxpayer but - and that's a big but - the Duchy stuff is virtually all organic and consistently tastes superb.  I highly recommend the biscuits, jams and chutneys which you'll find in most of the big four supermarkets (or better still, health food shops and places like Fresh & Wild). Update: Ducky Originals has pointed out, quite rightly, that it's financially independent and doesn't actually receive any funds from Charles. Apologies for the confusion - that'll teach me to stick my republican politics into my food and drink!

Ducky Originals? Surely that's more Graham Norton...

I really should re-read my posts before putting them up! Now updated. Though I would love to sample a Norton-branded range of camp but caring confectionery.

You've also got a ducky in the update bit - I think you like ducks

OK - I come clean. I do just like ducks!

That's surely the only explanation for why I'm not hitting the 'J' key in between 'H' and 'K'!
