The Greedy Frog has been interviewed (again!)

I have been interviewed by Mike Parr on BBC Tees as part of a feature about the different attitudes to food in France and Britain.

If you want to listen to the show click here , my bit is about 1h20 min into it.

Reduce Waste! Eat French Toast!


One the road to coming up with the recipe for my Marvels, I tried different ways of making them, and therefore ended up with some unsatisfactory batches.

One thing I really hate is waste, so I wasn’t about to just bin the cakes. The obvious answer was of course French Toast:

In a bowl, mix 1 beaten egg with a dash of milk and a pinch of cinnamon (I didn’t add any sugar as the cakes were already sweet).

Dip the sliced cakes in the mix, and cook in a frying pan, in a bit of melted butter, until golden on both sides.

Serve on its own or with maple syrup.
