"A cucumber should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, and then thrown out, as good for nothing." (Samuel Johnson - Tour of the Hebrides)
Samuel Johnson would have been a great blogger. And had he made that disparaging comment about cucumbers on the world wide web he would have been put right. Because we were sent a great recipe for Garlic Chicken Cucumber which has changed Freddie's opinion of this humble vegetable. From disaster last night with our juicing experience to triumph with a chinese recipe. And Freddie gave it a nine out of ten. So cucumber has won a reprieve.
