She's Back

And about time too. I'm sick to death of wannabe cooks, especially that woman in the warehouse. I want the real thing. I want recipes that work. I want Delia. Thank you God.

From the Times Online today:

Culinary queen Delia Smith is returning to TV. Smith last appeared in the BBC's 2002 series How To Cook. Afterwards she announced she was hanging up her apron, saying: "I'm quite old now - I want to quit while the going is good." She complained that cookery shows had moved on.
"Now people want to be entertained, whereas I was trying to teach how to cook, that's where it's different," she said of the new breed of TV chefs. But the 66-year-old is back this winter with a brand new BBC2 series. The programme will give a glimpse into Smith's life.
And it will show Smith using ready-made products alongside her own techniques, revealing her shortcuts to taking the effort out of cooking. Nigella Lawson's latest series Nigella Express also focuses on fast and easy recipes, and features scenes from the cook's family life - although her 'kitchen' was revealed to be part of an industrial estate in south London.
