Spice-cream

Af­ter you’ve used all the stem gin­ger in a jar, mix the syrup in a half-litre of vanilla ice-cream to make gin­ger ice-cream. My great-grand­chil­dren love it.

Egg-cep­tional!

To make the per­fect poached egg, boil a pan of wa­ter, line a ramekin dish with cling­film, oil it lightly, break egg into it. Then screw the top of the film to­gether and drop into the pan and cook for as long as you want, de­pend­ing on how firm you want it. My chef nephew says this will al­ways pro­duce a per­fect re­sult.
