I hope you're excited.
I am a Big Fan of The Great British Bake Off, of Delia Smith, and especially of anyone who can produce a delicious and nutritious meal using 6 ingredients or fewer. (More than six ingredients and I lose concentration).

There are all sorts of steamers readily available; bamboo steamers, stainless steel stacking steamers, electric steamers and even little steamer attachments for use on an existing saucepan.

It is therefore ESSENTIAL ...
