The good people of York (That’s York in Yorkshire, England, as opposed to the new version in the USA) have been excited to see Lasagnereview arrive in their city. After squirting Tesco fuel into a drain for a solid week to save up the required ‘Clubcard’ points, I ventured into the local ASK Italian clutching my £30 food voucher and a sense of embarrassment which apparently is unique to me when using coupons. My co-diner reassured me that people use them ‘all the time’ and it would absolutely not result in our food being tampered with.

Anonymous said: I'm loving the lasagne debate. I stumbled upon the M&S beef lasagne online. After reading the reviews I'm still not sure if this is the one for me. Can you provide an expert opinion?

Hi there, and thanks for the question. 

The M&S lasagne will be featured in due course, so you’ll have to wait for a full review. Needless to say, the 11 people who have written reviews of the dish are questionable at best - ‘Yummy yummy yummy’ and ‘Suitable for four adults’ are verging on the insane. One female reviewer comments that it was a successful bedrock of a ‘get together’ with friends, conjuring up an image at odds with a serious tasting session. I think most of these are M&S employees. A quick recommendation, without ruining the future review - get the Co-op ‘Truly Irresistible’ lasagne and cook it for a full hour rather than the suggested time, which is 35mins IIRC.

Picture the scene - you’re in London, working your way through the hordes of people around Covent Garden. It’s hot, sunny, everywhere is rammed, you’re starving hungry and every food joint is crammed full of masticating hipsters or general London plebs. Finally you spot an empty table through a condensation clad window and you dive inside like a child cannonballing parents using the pool at centre parcs.

The table was in Bella Italia. And I’m lucky I was hungry.

Not content with ruining peoples relationships over arguments about flat pack furniture and oddly alluring but totally wasteful and pointless ‘accessories’ such as decorative metal jugs, Ikea also have a canteen where you can eat flatpack food. Not really, it isn’t flat packed. Or is it? Does it taste like it is? Read on for enlightenment. Skol!

After a long break where I wrestled with my inner turmoil due to the potential repercussions of reviewing lasagne I’m back in the saddle. With renewed enthusiasm I burst into Jamie’s Italian and demanded sustenance.

Some people put mushrooms in Lasagne. This is wrong and needs to be stopped. My blog will promote traditional lasagne and will eventually branch out into a militia group intent on righting the wrongs of those who fall foul of a proper lasagne architecture.
