Chat With Delia

Although I wasn't able to see the chat live I was able to catch up later on and I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. Do hope there will be others in the future. Many thanks Delia.

Glad you enjoyed it Dottie - good to see your question was answered too! Here is a link if anyone else wants to take a look...



I missed the live chat, but read the transcript. Sat here wondering how we could get the word out about the Cookery School. What it needs is an advert on television and I bet people would flood to watch it. I've told as many people as I can and my problem is that people know I'm a Delia fan and probably think "Oh she's going on about Delia again" and think it's just like another cookery programme (but it's not!). They don't really realise just how good it IS unless they actually LOOK at it.

I agree

I'm in the USA and I look at the school all the time. (I've known about Delia for 24 years and have most of her books at this point).

What I find sad is that food television programs are always "entertainment" and not "educational." I don't care about fights in the kitchen, or folks hawking their brands of cheap saucepans sold at a high price because they have a celebrity chef name on them. American TV used to have great cookery instruction...not anymore. (I don't know about Britain!)

Anyway, I think the cookery school is great, and I really think the bakeware range is great.(I knew of Silverwood because I bought one of the collapsible cake tins while in Britain on vacation in the mid 1990s).


Cooking shows on tv.

I also live in the USA and find some decent cooking programmes on CREATE tv. which is a division of PBS and is found on Cox cable 10.2. If you can get it in your area you may find some useful and informative shows.



Hi Nate

My favourite american cook is Julia Child. Never heard of her til I read the book by Julie Powell but actually I enjoyed the film more with Meryl Streep. Julia Child is a legend. I have watched loads of You Tube clips of Julia Child and just adore her. Now she was entertainment and education... I've made her bearnaise sauce and it was soo delicious, and a few others. I also love her quotes:

This is my invariable advice to people: learn how to cook - try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun!

no one is born a great cook, one learns by doing.

What a great woman! : )
