Darrell and Nigel have arrived safe and sound in Bude and are already embracing the salty Cornish sea air, with resultant hearty appetites which Auntie Beth, their host, is trying her very best to accommodate ……. with, among other things, an ample sufficiency of Cornish sprouts. Darrell said that Nigel thought he has died and gone to heaven, sprouts being his number one vegetable of choice!
And in turn, Darrell and Nigel have proffered their gifts, including a very large large bag of hand cooked Gin and Tonic crisps (found in Aldi before they left).
They were very well received, although not the most appealing sounding of crisps they were a huge success and a most excellent ice breaker.
Darrell said that the gin and tonic element was barely discernable, but extra lime flavour was very palatable indeed.
So much so that he has made a note on his phone to get a packet or two for us to put away for “occasions” plus an extra one for Hugh, who is very partial to a nibble with his Bombay Sapphire and Fever Tree in his dressing room after a show and would also greatly appreciate the novelty aspect of such an unusual delicacy! What is he like?
