What I love about these comments is that it shows me that there are still plenty of people in Britain who believe in making meals from scratch and stand up for the art of cooking! Having just watched Jamie's School Dinners here in South Africa, I was horrified to see how many of the parents were so ignorant of good, fresh ingredients, and simple cooking. Reading these comments has given me fresh hope and a better opinion of what people in England are eating these days!

LOL seriously??? I came onto this website for some inspiration to improve what limited ability I have in preparing gastronomic delights, but even I could have thought this up without the help of a "highly acclaimed chef" LOL. It has given me a giggle though. Just to say no I haven't tried it but would like to suggest an alternative take the lid of a jar of jam place some in a bowel and decorate with squirty cream. HA ha ha ha ha ha ;-O

This isn't a recipe, its a serving suggestion!

I love lemon curd, but this suggestion sounds awful - and I agree chocolate and lemon do not make a good combination. Lemon curd mixed with mascarpone, with a little zest and juice does make a quick and easy desssert, especially on a crushed digestive base, with a drizzle of lemon curd (mixed with limoncello?) on top.

I don't think I would like it - Lemon Curd is great, but I like it with scones and butter and a nice hot cup of tea. The way it is, you could just open the jar and eat the lemon curd straight away out of it, without making a fuss ;-) But I thought about the combination of lemon curd and rhubarb. So I'll just try making a little rhubarb compote and serve it with lemon curd instead of the other way round.

Well when i saw 'Lemon Curd Pots' and the picture i got a little excited. I have a jar of lemon curd in the cupboard just waiting to be used for something, it was only when i read the method of the recipe that i was very dissopopinted. Where is the imagination in this reipe, if you could call it that. Sorry bbcgood food but this has to be the first recipe ive seen on your site where i just dont feel it cuts the mustard.

It's amazing how many people comment and didn't try it. I myself am one of them. It's also amazing how many people went "where's the cooking in this?" How stupid do you have to be to want to 'cook' a desert? Seriously!
