The big screen in your shopping basket - your suggestions please
Sunday was the first time in a while I've done a cartoon style double-take - I glanced at Barry Norman's face on a jar of pickled onions, looked away, shook my head in astonishment then turned back to check my eyes weren't playing silly buggers.
While I'm reasonably sure that they're a recent addition to Sainsbury's inventory, the aging film pundit has been putting his name to pickled onions for four years. It's an old family recipe passed down to Norman through the ages, and one that I've since learnt makes for an onion so tart and spicy that it can blow your mouth off your face.
Perhaps they haven't got quite the same celebrity attraction as Paul Newman's range of sauces and dressings, but hats off to Bazza for forcing his unbearably firey fayre on the rest of us. It also begs the question - which other film and television folk should put their names to groceries? Lorraine Kelly's Meat Growler, anyone? Stick your suggestions in the comments.
