Category3 May 2018STARTERS, SHELLFISH, SOUP Prawnskin Bisque
Discarded prawn shells must never be thrown away. Our Chelsea fishmonger, the estimable David Toddle (a very dear friend) always sells the very best shellfish so one doesn’t want to waste a thing! So boil the shells in water with seasoning, white wine, sherry or brandy (or, indeed, sherry and brandy); tomato paste or crushed tomatoes and spring onions. Allow to cool then boil it all up again, strain and add an extra splash of sherry or brandy and, of course, some cream. Given the works like this the shells provide just as much pleasure as their recently departed occupants.

Dear Sir, I disagree with Geoff Cannon (10 Mar). High Harm is much creepier than the McMafia the TV series because that was just about gangsters doing horrible stuff to each other which is sort of fine. But High Harm is about how high end criminals suborn the state – and threaten you and me. Paul Stanhoff, Bristol
