I hope you aren't comparing me to her. I may be mad but I'm not totally certifiable!

In my youth there was a radio comedy programme called "Beyond Our Ken" and one of the recurring characters was called "Fanny Haddock" played by Betty Marsden. It was Fanny Craddock to the life and so funny. Listening to repeats recently I'm surprised FC didn't sue!

To be fair to the woman I make a tarte tatin to her instructions from one of the first cookery books I ever bought. It's very good and stands up well to French recipes for the dish

Well yes, you can see her point. JC and my mother too!

I was making a sly reference to Ina Garten who is big on "clean hands" accompanied by said hands waving at the camera.

I enjoy Fanny, the videos always make the tasks seem much less daunting!

I have a picture of her in my mind, waving about a very long cigarette while sipping a very large cocktail, perhaps her second or third!

Fanny reminds me of a few family holidays at my Aunt's house, when I was growing up! Arriving for dinner when the turkey was still sitting in the sink waiting to be stuffed and the old girls were sitting in the front room fuming and fussing, whispering at the top of their lungs! The holiday season is a magical time of year for families!
