Recommended Posts

Delia Smith axed as face of Waitrose after supermarket opts for wacky recipes of Heston Blumenthal.

  • Waitrose is looking to ''push the

    boundaries of supermarket innovation''
  • Delia, 71, leaves by ''mutual consent'' with a record of boosting sales
  • Heston agrees new contract and will continue to create unique products
  • Store remains ''on good terms'' with Delia who has ''several other projects''

    Record of boosting sales and a reliable face the nation generally loves. Heston on the other hand...is mental. Be funny if sales went down now

    Do people actually like that Heston guy? Some of the things he does is interesting, but mostly it just seems weird and pointless. Delia all the way!

    Looks like Wiz is out again.

    Perhaps he should remind us of the time when Delia allegedly pocketed thousands of pounds from the club.

    Or when Stephen Fry was a class A drug user.

    Along with many other timeless classics.

    His recipes are bonkers and he''s doing a pretty rubbish job managing Reading.

    Just seen analysis that Delia was the 11th most successful UK woman entrepreneur in 2011.  Must have added in the increase in the value of her NCFC shares into that (about £18m I believe) - I''m sure he who shall not be named got a thank you.

    The story is certainly not true at all. And that is a fact it was a outside catering company

    Norwich City Football Club has been hit by a mystery stomach bug

    after four first team players and several staff became ill following its

    annual barbecue.

    It is believed that up to 30 people suffered from

    vomiting and diarrhoea following Sunday afternoon''s social event at the

    Colney training ground, which was attended by around 250 players, staff

    and their wives and children.

    The cause of the sickness has not yet been

    identified, however the club was quick to point out today that the

    catering at the event was not provided by celebrity chef and joint

    majority shareholder Delia Smith.

    For the record.Now does that "fresh start" stretch to posting malicious untruths, I wonder?

    Good find Chops.

     

    I was wrong, no arguement and I apologise to all concerned especially Delia Smith.

    I''m intrigued to learn who the ten ladies were who were more successful than Delia that year. I can''t think of one. Maybe that appalling blonde dragon on Dragon''s Den?
