After all my hard work, that Delia recipe went to the dogs

Verity hopes future generations will have ditch the mobile devices and go back to basics

VERITY LUSH: How schoolchildren will guffaw at the Elizabethan selfie generation

Have your say

I attempted one of those Delia Smith recipes you see on the TV ads earlier this week.

What a clever idea. Jamie Oliver, Heston Blumenthal and now Delia have recorded these 30 second gems.

So off I went with my meatballs, can of tomatoes and creme fraiche to hand.

Being such a quick advert, the recipe was really easy to follow and in no time I had put my pan in the oven to bake for one hour.

But because I normally cook on the hob, I’d forgotten that the pan would be red hot.

I’m pretty sure this is why I dropped the contents of the pan all over the floor when I went to dish up.

I have to say though, the dogs thoroughly enjoyed it Delia!
