  • Cake and drink are discussed for a birthday party.

    Not only are cake and drink, but other dishes including bruschetta, are discussed by Simon and Minty. They also talk about children!

    The torta was delicious-looking, but who the cake was meant for caused me to score this episode the lowest of the series. Who it was meant for should never have had the dessert made for them.

    Other than the cake recipient, the whole episode was fun! The twist wasn't expected by me, even with the hints dropped.


Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Minty: Now, you probably do what most people do- go out and buy jam tarts, chocolate fingers, crisps, and a shop-bought cake, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that if you don't really love your children.
      Simon: If I caught a child of mine with a chocolate finger, I'd break it in half.

    • Minty: Double-glazed with olive oil, it has to be the Prince of Wales batch-cooked, organic, hand-baked, river-salted, crisp-flavoured crisps. These are the crisps that made Prince Charles a household name.

    • Minty: Useful tip: if you can't afford sixteen pounds eighty for a kilo of chipolatas, you shouldn't really be starting a family.

    • Minty: When Simon's mother, Lady Marchmont, first saw me use one of these[ a food processor], she said, "Lazy slut!" (Chuckles) Such a tease!

    • Simon: Why would I want kids? What do they know about food?

    • Simon: (about the single malt whiskey) It's so wonderfully complex. (Takes a sip) Deep fruitiness, burnt sticks, boiled sweets, and scorched wool. Notes of heather, plastic, and egg. Overall...rope. It's like sucking nectar through a hangman's noose.
