I tuned into a British TV series called “Come Dine With Me” this afternoon where 5 contestants host a dinner party at each other’s homes and the one voted, with the highest score, by fellow dinner guests, wins £1000.
This week 5 Christmas dinner parties are taking place in London and I know, through ITV Studios, who e-mailed me, that one of the dinner parties will be serving my slightly modified “Ministry of Food” eggless Christmas cake and serving it with a “mock cream”.
I did have fun trying to guess which contestant would be the one to have a dinner party with such a basic food as eggless wartime Christmas cake! My money is on the Cambridge history buff, John Stevens who studied the history of the secret services at university (and he had a bust of Winston Churchill displayed on his wall). I think his dinner party will be shown on Channel 4 on Wednesday.
