Claire Beale's Best in Show: Pot Noodle (AKQA)

Once it was known as the "slag of all snacks". Now, for the princely sum of £29.95 you can buy a "Poulet et champignon" Pot Noodle in Harrods. All proceeds go to Action Against Hunger.

Obituary: Laxmishanker Pathak

A specialist food shop in Florida is advertising on the internet its range of British epicurean delights: Crosse and Blackwell's Branston pickle, Peek Frean's rich tea biscuits, Bird's custard powder, and Patak's curry sauces and chutneys.

PETER YORK ON ADS: No 102: POT NOODLE

IN THE Eighties a judge famously asked what a Pot Noodle actually was. This was evidence of the judiciary's distance from contemporary life, for as we food-slummers all knew, the Pot Noodle was the high point of new food technology - all "tech", no food. It was quite fabulous in two respects; fabulously slobbish and fabulously bad for you.

Noodles Vivaldi

Takasago Shokuhin, the manufacturer, says experiments show the udon noodle tastes better if it dries and matures to classical music. 'We have no scientific explanation, but our employees who ate samples have said that the udon that listened to the music is more delicious than the normal udon,' an official said.
