I saw this today, wonder if there are any chicken recipes?

blamethecat Mon 13-Nov-17 13:46:25

Hoping the locum wasn't introduced as a replacement sad

If you don't have your own Jeffery store bought is fine.

You will need six gallons of heavy cream, a whole pot of salt and a wheel of cheese. Oh and some gay men to decorate your house. What could be better?

ChardonnaysPrettySister Mon 13-Nov-17 14:18:10

Aww!

They are quite sweet though, aren't they?

RunningAddict Mon 13-Nov-17 14:22:00

Love her! 😂

Lotsawobblybits Mon 13-Nov-17 14:35:04

isn't Friday Jeffery's chicken night? (taps nose knowingly)

........as Anthony Bourdain said "it's very perfect in Ina World, Scarily so."

Sorry about the random post ! She is brilliant her recipes are so vast, I was watching a risotto one earlier and there was about 3lb of veg in it.

SalopianGirl Mon 13-Nov-17 14:48:53

Is she holding a gun to Jeffrey's back in that photo? "Smile and hold the goddam cake"?

SalopianGirl Mon 13-Nov-17 14:50:19

Apologies for random question mark after cake !

SenecaFalls Mon 13-Nov-17 14:51:11

I love Ina.

And I really love old love.

Her fruit crunch recipe is good.

HemanOrSheRa Mon 13-Nov-17 14:55:42

You forgot the 'stick of budder' Floella. For flavour. So much flavour.

How good does that cake look? Fantastic. And no effort at all. But where is Jeffery's chicken? Jeffery loves chicken.

HairsprayBabe Mon 13-Nov-17 14:57:00

Just add 7 sticks of butter, how bad can that be!?

Fantastic

CallMeDollFace Mon 13-Nov-17 14:59:03

Oh the butter 😂

HappyEverIftar Mon 13-Nov-17 14:59:15

RunningAddict you beat me to it grin.

I always try and work out how much her shopping bill must be. Those delis in the Hamptons cannot be cheap.

It’s always Jeffrey’s birthday or an occasion for Jeffery and they way she calls them erbs
