Would I be drummed out of the Clocktower and have the drip trays emptied over me if I admitted that I found his portrayal of the thoroughly unscrupulous and unloveable Dean Corso rather tasty (The Ninth Gate)?

(Not to mention that the music is wonderfully creepy and funereal)

[edit]
OH POO!

I must have had something rather more gin than tea when I originally posted that. Although I stand by the sentiment.

*bell above front door jingles softly*

Did I hear ladies discussing that charming young man, Johnny Depp?

And if no one objects may I rest my feet awhile and join you?

I could have sworn it was a sort of crumpet style thing, perhaps for soup and tea.

That would be delicious! *runs off, baking up a storm*

Ladies, can anyone recommend, or even share, a good recipe for simple cupcakes? I can make very British cakes like a sponge, rock cakes, jam tarts etc, but things as delicate as cupcakes defeat me!

I had assumed they were a type of biscuit,

Dr. William Oliver, invented the English Bath Oliver Biscuits. William Oliver was a legendary physician who treated people with the spa waters at Bath. Hence the biscuit has been called the Bath Oliver.

Dr Oliver had apparently first invented the Bath Bun (a rich, sweet bun that his patients adored.) which was so delicious that Dr. Oliver found that his patients, whom he was treating for rheumatism, were getting too fat on them. So he experimented and was able to produce the plainer and less fattening, Bath Oliver biscuits.
He is said to have willed the recipe for Bath Olivers to his coachman Atkins, together with a sack of flour and a sum of money. Atkins set up in business at 13 Green Street and became rich by making the biscuit. After various changes in ownership, the Oliver biscuit recipe passed to James Fortt. In 1952 the Fortt family business was still baking 80,000 biscuits a day in Bath. The biscuits are no longer made in Bath, they are still available and are excellent when eaten with cheese, especially the local Cheddar.

But olives are good too thanks
