Cabbage-patch revolutionaries? The French 'grocer terrorists'

The villagers of Tarnac were charmed by the self-sufficient students who set up a commune in their midst. Little did they realise that their new neighbours were anarchists bent on overthrowing capitalism. Or so the police claimed. So what is the truth?

The Life Kitchen: Slow-roast pork belly with gorgonzola and apple cabbage

Although it needs three hours slow roasting, the beauty of this cut of pork is that it looks after itself. As the fat melts it bastes the meat, leaving the joint so soft it carves with a spoon.

An Ear to the Ground, By Ken Thompson

Celebrity gardening books flourish like weeds, but this hardy guide by botanist Ken Thompson deserves its own place in the sun.

Cotan, Juan Sanchez: Still Life with Quince, Cabbage, Melon and Cucumber (c1600)

So old-fashioned stodge is good for you, is it?

IT'S OFFICIAL then: stodge is good for you, so is over-cooked cabbage, calves' foot jelly, tapioca and Spam.

REAL ISSUES: LIFE DOCTOR

THE WEIGHT-LOSS diet is surely a nominee for The 20th Century's Biggest Red Herring award. All it has really taught us is that perfect weight is best achieved not by dieting (98 per cent don't work long-term), but with healthy habits and attitude. Habits we all had anyway before fast food and unprecedented wealth turned us into a nation of lard-arses.
