Drinking a cup of coffee right now. French roast, I forget what brand but it's from the supermarket. And a pretty good one, too!
Ah but Lillybelle- the best chefs always buy the nicest ingredients- I think it's part of being a good cook . I try my best - having spent a long time in the UK - I learnt to make a number of british meals - like boiled gammon, meat pies, yorkshire pudding etc - all from Delia Smith's humungous cookbook and from some good friends' mothers and fathers !
I also used to watch the Food Channel but that is seriously bad for the waistline ! *LOL*
