Podcast 260: This is Our Christmas Everest, Part Four – Delia’s Classic Christmas

by | Dec 4, 2020

Day 4 of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar takes in Delia’s Classic Christmas. Edward and Ian disagree about food on an almost recreational basis but are both keen consumers of it, so expect a variety of hot takes and disagreements about parsnips, Quality Street, microwaves and dried fruit.

Our heroes also find time to assess Delia Smith’s cultural impact, recommend robbing Marks & Spencer, discuss how Sisyphus would have cooked his turkey and identify the correct topping for a trifle. But the real winner today is prawns and pigs in blankets. The original surf and turf. You can watch Delia do her thing here.

Tomorrow morning, it’s the Telly Addicts Christmas Special.
