Ainsley Harriot, King of Cous Cous

July 6, 2011

Yesterday’s lunch was good, in more ways than one, but today’s lunch is better. While you could argue that home-made always trumps packet, I have to disagree occasionally. Today is one of those occasions.


Today’s lunch consists of half a packet of Ainsley Harriot’s Moroccan Cous Cous. Here are three reasons why it makes Ainsley the god of cous cous:

  1. It’s cheap. A packet costs 69 pence from Tesco, which then offers two lunches. That’s 34.5 pence a lunch.
  2. It’s very easy to make. Literally, just add water.
  3. It tastes like an entire bowl of flavour. If you prefer, it’s a party in my mouth… but I really didn’t want to use that phrase.

All hail Ainsley, King of Cous Cous. Long may your reign continue.

The rest of my day in food:

8:00 Special K
13:00 Cous cous (as discussed above), chewy bar
18:20 Pizza (out of date, doing my bit for food waste)(or being lazy, you choose)
18:40 Haribo
