“There’s only so much you can do for lasagne in the looks department. The only garnish that would improve it would be a power cut.”

“Spinach is the Kate Moss of vegetables. Goes with everything, boils down to nothing.”

“Pasta is eaten by happy, smiley people having fun with people they love or fancy and are about to shag. Noodles are eaten by people who have no friends.”
