Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

Saltier Than The Sea

Saltier Than The Sea

In this age of "saltism" it comes as no surprise to learn that poor old Jamie Oliver has been on the receiving end of criticism from the anti salt brigade, re Jamie Oliver's pasta sauce.

Seemingly, if the hype is to be believed, it contains more salt that 10 bags of crisps and even the sea!

Frankly this criticism is a load of BS.

Salt is perfectly harmless to those in good health, indeed it is a necessary component of our diet.

Excess salt, in a healthy person, is easily excreted via sweat and urine.

It is a fuss over nothing, whipped up by ignorant pressure groups and the media.

The ingredient that does need to be cut down on in all our foods is sugar.
