I’m a big fan of simple flavours when it comes to food – especially if you’re using quality products. Sullying their natural flavours with second-rate spices is a crime against humanity that should be punishable by death. Or KFC dunked wings.

One of the finest dishes to be found anywhere is Cacio e pepe, a simple pasta dish using any of a number of types of spaghetti, with little more than Pecorino Romano and cracked black pepper. Some of the water from boiling the spaghetti is used directly on the cheese, melting it – with the starches from the spaghetti thickening the sauce. A bit of pepper and what you have is something truly sublime. So simple, yet so delicious.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
