imbibed the Olympics spirt, we thought these two
recipes from Nigel Slater in The Observer serves
two purposes. First, they cater to our British frame-of-mind and,
second, the recipes are easy enough to be able to prepare with
minimal viewing time lost.
Slater describes The Baked Chicken with Summer Vegetables as
"I rubbed a load of chicken pieces, mostly brown meat,
such as thighs and drumsticks, with a commercial peri-peri
seasoning, and baked them on top of summer vegetables in a roasting
tin. The juices from the chicken, spiced with chillies, sweet
paprika and lime juice, ran down into the vegetables and mingled
with the olive oil in the pan. What the presentation lacked in
finesse, the dish made up for in flavour."
And the Summer Pudding:
"Rather than cut the bread into thin slices and
place them methodically into a bowl, I tore up some pieces of
sourdough and made a nifty patchwork. The effect was strangely more
satisfying than with my usual way, possibly because I had achieved
a magnificent-looking pudding in no time at all."
A couple of notes:

forth between British and American measurements and terms, here's
