We caught up briefly with the foodie double act to grill them on the truly important stuff…

Your ultimate death-row, last-night-on-earth meal, would be… 

Dave: Sushi – all of it!
Si: A hot cup of tea and a bacon sandwich.

The thing you still can’t cook is…

Dave: A dosa, the Indian pancakes. Can’t do ‘em – I’ve even bought a proper dosa pan for it! And I love dosas.
Si: Meringues. I can’t get those massive, voluminous, beautiful meringues. I just can’t do ‘em, drives me crazy.

Your favourite store cupboard essential has to be…

Dave: Olive oil.
Si: Salt and pepper.

The kitchen utensil you can’t live without is…

Dave: Coffee machine – haha!
Si: Sharp knives.

If you get hungry late at night, the first snack you’ll reach for is…

Dave: Pizza!
Si: Marmite on toast.

Preferably your eggs would be…
Dave: Poached.
Si: Poached!

Your favourite childhood dinner was always…

Dave: My mother’s fishcakes.
Si: Mine’s a leek and onion pudding which we used to have on a Monday with cold cuts of beef and warmed-up gravy.

For dinner last night you ate…

Dave: Small plates, we had some ceviche…
Si: Some octopus!
Dave: And some macaroni cheese, a couple of vodka martinis and half a bottle of Sardinian wine!

And your takeaway of choice is…

Dave: Thai.
Si: Tandoori.
