Cyril in My Kitchen

I'm positively brimming (my italics) with excitement, dear reader. Cyril Lignac, the French Jamie Oliver, is coming round to cook for me!! Ok ok, first of all I have to win this sandwich competition organised by the makers of luscious (worth a try) cream cheese Kiri, but surely that is merely a formality? Who, after all, could resist my triple-layer "Nutella, Marmite and banana" on polar bread special? It's been known to make a grown man (me) cry. It's certainly more original than anything Cyril himself has ever come up with. He "shot" to televisual fame by taking a group of unemployed people and teaching them how to cook (ooh reminds me of....oh yes, Jamie Oliver) and then set up his own restaurant called "15" (as did, who was it? Ah yes, Jamie Oliver). Ha, I hear you snort, I expect he'll be tackling school dinners next. Yes, that's right. Still, his recipes ARE different (more fiddly and restaurant-y than Jamie's, but not bad at all, particularly on the French classics). In the interests of fairness, I have an equal number of cookbooks by each, but my heart really belongs to Jamie. That said, however, he's not offering to come round and cook, is he? I wonder what I shall wear....?

I'm so going to apply! And then I'm going to win. And then you're going to come over, and we can body-slam him at the same time, thus making a Cyril Stamwich. Or maybe not. In any case, I don't even remember what Kiri tastes like. Is it that apericube stuff?

Nothing, you'll wear nothing, just spread kiri all over your body and say "oh Cyril, fais de moi ta tartine".

haha Nardac, sort of, but whiter and fluffier. May the best cook win (oh, that's you...) Micke, errrmmm, thanks for the suggestion...(I think)....

Rhino - we've seen inside your fridge. We know you need Cyril. The question is, what do you have that he needs...?

Boz, I have a very large rolling pin marked "Made in England" - d'you think that would do it?

I once had a very large rolling pin made in England.

TMI, I know.

It's not the size or manufacturing location of your rolling pin, Rhino, it's the pastry you lay out with it...
