Can anyone, Delia perhaps, advise upon where I might obtain a nice white plate like the one in the picture?

Can you tell if the marmite has gone off? Is it like wine?

I cooked this meal for my wife and children three weeks ago and so disgusted was she with my efforts she subsequently left me. Since then, as word has spread throughout the local community I have become a social pariah. People cross the street just to spit on me. Even the cat has buggered off. To say I wasn't entirely pleased with the results is an understatement. I can only offer a rating of 3.5/5

I sent this amazing recipe to my American cousin who wanted to sample the very best of traditional British cuisine. However, she was very apprehensive about quantities, as they measure everything in cups over there. I said I thought a slice of bread might be about a cup, but she wanted to be sure. By the time she had squished the bread into a cup and removed it again it was in no condition to be toasted (or 'broiled' as she calls this process). Still, since she had been proposing to substitute something called 'Spicee Cheezorama Dairy-style Spread' for the Marmite, perhaps it was all for the best...

As I'm on quite a strict diet I thought I'd try a more healthy alternative - so I ditched the toaster and steamed the bread instead! I also decided to use some lovely rapseed oil instead of butter. I looked for some reduced salt Marmite - but I couldn't seem to find it anywhere (anyone got any suggestions?). Why didn't I replace the bread with something far healthier (and tastier!) like rice crackers? Well, I wanted to try and stay as true as I could to the original recipe! Anyway - the result, needless to say, was delicious!!

asg24 - Traditional wine to go with this dish would be a glass of Buckfast. But if that is too heavy for you taste and you'd like something lighter Lambrini would work fine as well.

Frustrating. I used a microwave instead of a toaster. It didn't work. Sorry, but not all of us are lucky enough to have specialist kitchen equipment on hand. I'm certainly not going to go out and buy a toaster for one recipe.

I was keen to try this recipe, but as a busy pie shop owner I doubted that I would have time for the preparation AND cooking after a busy day at the pie shop. I decided to try to adapt the recipe for my slow cooker. I placed the bread in my slow cooker in the morning and happily went off to a busy day at the pie shop knowing that when I got home I would have a nutritious and hot meal waiting for me. Wrong! When I got home the fire brigade were waiting for me. The bread had caught on fire after approximately 7 hrs on the slow cooker on high. A spark from the flaming bread had caught light my spare pie shop apron that was hanging on a hook next to the slow cooker. Thankfully I live next to the fire station so the damage was minimal, but really! This recipe has ruined my life. I probably will never now get to taste this delicacy as it is far too dangerous to cook. Red alert fellow cooks! Do not attempt to take on this recipe lightly. Cook with caution!

To suggest that marmite be used for anything other than a practical joke is inhumane.
