Rachel Allen: All Things Sweet

SBS Food, 6pm

Irish cook Rachel Allen's boast is that her dishes are simple to make and packed with natural flavours – and so it proves. I am the opposite of a sweet tooth. Things oozing cream and chocolate don't make me go yum, they make me feel a bit ill. So this is the perfect show for me – without alienating all those people who love things oozing cream and chocolate. Everything looks really fresh and zingy and the portions are modest – a little sweet treat, not a grotesque "indulgence". And Allen herself is delightfully homey, right down to the large burn on the back of one wrist— a mark of pride for any real cook.
