Another attack on junk food?

Eating lunch al-desko? It's disgusting says controversial health minister Anna Soubry

Minister for public health described Britain as having a 'weird' relationship with food and called on people to take the time to cook their own meals

Editorial: Where's the beef? We should know

Whatever your feelings about eating horse meat, the discovery that some supermarket burgers have been found to contain horse DNA raises a serious question: why did the British food safety authorities fail to spot the problem? It is only thanks to the Irish that we know that 37 per cent of spot-tested frozen beefburgers contained horse DNA and an extraordinary 85 per cent also contained traces of pork.

Late-night fast food is rarely a healthy option, but an E. coli outbreak at the Adonis Kebab House in 2011 meant that doner fans in Cardiff were taking their lives in their hands.

Editorial: Why bother to cook Christmas dinner? Because it's there

News that one in four Britons has never cooked, or assisted in the cooking of, a Christmas dinner should come as no surprise. Last week, Jamie Oliver was crowned victor of the Christmas publishing scramble, beating even J K Rowling to second place in the charts. The name of the title that will be filling so many stockings? 15-Minute Meals.

Not just clutter: 'Between the Ears' on Radio 3 looked at downsizing

The Week in Radio: Moved by the memories of those who can't let go

"This is my life, I can't just throw it away," said an elderly woman in Radio 3's Between the Ears, the panic rising in her voice. She was in process of moving into sheltered housing, and the prospect of reducing her worldly goods was making her ill. She had, she explained, just spent three days in hospital.

Being Modern: The Christmas sandwich

Forget Advent calendars, C-listers flicking on lights or teeth-numbingly saccharine TV ads. The official countdown to Christmas – festival of who can stick the most in their gob – is measured in eggnog lattes, mince-pie ice-creams and the ubiquitous Christmas sandwich. The appearance of the latter, the bright-red box in a sea of humdrum sarnies, can induce excitement in office workers akin to Santa himself sneaking into the chiller cabinet at Pret.
