Toad in the Hole
It started as a simple question, why is told-in-the-hole called told-in-the-hole? A quick search of Google and it's pals and I thought I'd have the answer.
Two years down the line and I'm still none the wiser!
Toad-in-the-hole origin unveiled??
At last! After loads of years of trying, we have two possible answers to the toad-in-the-hole conundrum. Both Sigve and Jason have come up with possible answers for me and to them I am eternally grateful!
Delia Smith: The Reply
Not a reply from Delia herself but surely this is the next best thing! Jane tries to help, even offering up some advice as to where I might find the information from. Sadly though, as with those that have gone before her, she doesn't actually know the answer.
Jamie Oliver: The Reply
Hot on the heals of Gordon Ramsay, I received a reply to my letter to Jamie Oliver. As with Gordon though, I don't think Jamie knows, however his assistant did come up with a handy tip
Gordon Ramsay: The Reply
I recently asked Gordon Ramsay if he knew how toad-in-the-hole got it's name, sadly I don't think he knew.
Jamie Oliver, do you know the answer?
I'm not getting much joy with these celebrity chefs. I feel sure though that Jamie Oliver may be able to provide a clue or two.
This is a message for Delia Smtih, we need an answer here!
Where are you?!...
Where are you!!
Gordon Ramsay is a celebrity. Gordon Ramsay is a chef. Gordon Ramsay is NOT a celebrity chef!! He does know his stuff though, but can he solve the mystery of Toad-in-the-Hole?
Aunt Bessie's Toad in the Hole
I'm hoping you can help me solve a mystery that has been going on for far too long! I've been trying to find out why Toad-in-the-Hole is called, well, Toad-in-the-Hole! Why not Cat-in-a-Tree for example!
