Sophie Dahl's pretend cookery program is on the background. She is annoying. She's making a show of trying to recall a Dorothy Parker quote, which you know the production team have just got her to memorise, like 2 minutes before the camera started shooting. She is aping that Nigella 'Bloody' Lawson presentation trait of shoe-horning adjectives into all the ingredient descriptions (I can't give any examples as I've purged them from my brain already - they were poisonously irritating). And she's just described a big mozzarella cheese as a "ball of alabaster" - soft cheese vs marble ball?? I bet people in council houses all over England want to punch her in the face. Or is it just me?
