I've got a number of olive wood platters and boards - of course I have living here.

The first time I bought one I was told to use mild olive oil on it and do this with all my olive wood boards

From time to time I've mentioned my daughter does wild water swimming. Oxford BBC did a feature on the club. Hope you can open the video. Daughter is the one wiggling her bum! :oops:

Brrr! My granddad used to go skinny dipping in the sea near Brighton every day in the early morning, back in the 60s. Oddly the place he used to do it is now a nudist beach, although my granddad wasn't a naturist, but very prim and proper. I think the skinny dipping was more of a penance than a pastime, he was an old time fire and brimstone preacher type.

very near the start I suppose?

I don't fancy it myself.

Sakkarin, at least skinny dipping saves the wind on cold wet cozzie unpleasantness

Yes Sue. The costumes dry quickly.

I don't fancy it either.

Nice to meet your daughter, Dennis! They are all very brave, but seem to be enjoying themselves!

Is this the beginning of the end for O'Liver??

And a bit of nepotism in the mix too it seems...

"...the business was brought under the wing of Paul Hunt, the husband of Oliver’s sister Anna-Marie. Hunt, a former City trader who was fined £60,000 in 1999 for insider trading, had overhauled Oliver’s media and licensing operations after taking charge in 2014."

EDIT: Let's hope the staff are paid the £2.2 million thatthey are owed out of the £150 million O'Liver is quoted as being worth.

I will defend Jamie to the end. Other newspapers are not spouting vitriol like The Grauniad but reporting the facts. Sadly I can't post the links to The Telegraph and The Times reports as they are behind paywalls. Our local Jamie's Italian is, and always has been, absolutely fabulous and I will be very said if it closes. His charity work above all is beyond reproach. I have dined at Fifteen and seen it in action. Times are hard in the restaurant industry and his company are addressing this.

There will always be people who want to topple succesfull entrepreneurs.

Jamie inspired all four of my children to cook and to entertain. (Obviously I failed).

And I have yet to cook a recipe of his that doesn't work.
