Business Diary: Cooking up a tasty comeback
Friday 02 December 2011
Delia Smith hasn't had the easiest ride since taking over at Norwich City Football Club – who could forget her raucous appeal to fans to get behind the side on the PA system – but here's some reward for all her hard work. The Institute for Turnaround has just handed her and the rest of Norwich City's management team a gong for the way they've turned the once financially stricken club into a stable member of the Premier League.

Busy times for Chelsea's other half
Looks like Chelsea Clinton's husband is going to have a busy 2012. The former president's daughter married ex-Goldman Sachs banker Marc Mezvinsky a couple of years back: now he's about to set up shop on his own, with a hedge fund launch planned for the first half of next year. He's teamed up with two former Goldman colleagues and plans to trade a range of different assets.
