Found...

In  an otherwise empty shopping trolley in Waitrose, a discarded shopping list. On a lined sheet that had been torn from a small spiral-bound notebook, in uncertain handwriting,  the necessities of life were set out:


Vodka
Sausages
Breed (sic)
Baked Beans
Vodka

Is this a sign of the times?

No 'five a day on' that list...

Almost, though - potatoes (from which vodka is distilled); Beans, and tomatoes in the sauce; wheat (in the 'Breed')....and if we assume it was a fruit loaf, then there you go...bingo! Not sure that was quite what the blessed Tony had in mind when he came up with the idea originally, though.

I think that might have been my list - I forgot the bread.

The shopping list is a tad worrying..
I have just read your comment regarding the (eggless)pasta and noticed that you may be in London.
There is a charming restaurant in Bermondsey called Zucca,where they do really good pici.
Alas,the menu changes daily and pici are not often on it,but they are better then the stuff that i had in Italy.

Do you think that maybe they hadn't read Stevie's piece, and in fact made their pasta dough with eggs? (1 cup of '00' flour, to 1 cup of semolina, to 3 medium eggs, plus a teaspoon of oil and a generous pinch of salt.)

Back to Italy on the 10.55 tomorrow morning, so I'm afraid Bermondsey will have to wait until next time. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
