I had a friend visiting last weekend, and we decided we wanted a pizza. I let slip that I had never ordered a pizza delivered to the door before.

Grating

I bought a cheese grater the other day. The one I had was annoying me – it was a large, steel box thing, hand to get at the cheese which would fall in the middle. It just annoyed me.

So I was in the supermarket when saw a very simple, flat – and that was important to me, I wanted a two- rather than three-dimensional - cheese grater.

I bought it.

It had no packaging. It was just a cheese grater, with a label.

The label said “please keep the packaging for reference”.

It had no packaging. I think the label was just trying to confuse me.

I have just eaten pasta with a simple tomato and mushroom sauce.

It was absolutely delicious.

To make the sauce, I sautéed an onion with several cloves of garlic in some olive oil. I added a tin of chopped tomatoes, a handful of dried herbs, and a glass of red wine, and left it on the hob for three quarters of an hour or so. Then I added six sliced mushrooms, and left the lid off the pan so it the liquid would reduce.

I grated some grana padano over the pasta and sauce.

The whole was really delicious. It was surprising that something so simple could taste so good.

I can’t help thinking it must be something in the tin of tomatoes. This tin came from Tesco – a British supermarket – as opposed from Waitrose, where the last few tins I used came from. (Before that, the tin pretends to have come from Italy. I don’t know whether this is true or not.) This tasted much, much better than the last tomato and mushroom sauce I made. So, thank you, Tesco.
