Verdict: A very green and unusual sauce. Essentially a herby and slightly tart pesto. Tasty.

Drink: A cheeky can of Tyskie for him. A temperate glass of water for her.

Entertainment: Here at Yumblog cottage we watched the final of ‘The Great British Bake Off’ along with 8 million others. Frances won. We weren’t fond of Frances.
