As reported the other day, there's been lots of comings and goings in the Emporium lately and none more exciting than the appearance of this ...
NO! It isn't really a doorstop shaped like a cute red and white polkadot caravan with a flowerbox on the window ... no no no ..
It IS a caravan alright, and one which has sent Mr Doodle into conniptions ... Because this caravan is the home of Mr Doo, and he's a travelling chef chicken! (no, not a chicken chef, because that would be wrong. A chef chicken).
Look! He's already started supervising in the cafe, inspecting the cake rations!
Mr Doo is very impressed with the terracotta range in store. He said that the round shallow dishes in particular make the most ridiculously crispy roast potatoes. Roast potatoes are very nice with salad you know (certainly not with roast cough cough chicken, cough). What you do, is peel and par boil your potatoes as normal - you could even do a "Delia" and shake them around in the saucepan after draining the water out, to make them "fluffy". Then you toss them in oil put them in your terracotta dish, season, then put it all in a hot or cold oven for 30 or so minutes et Voila! as they say in France. Perfectly crispy roast potatoes.
