Cooking with Ben Kay

And now for something completely different...

Following on from former England lock Ben Kay's testimonial year in 2009/10 comes "Cooking with Balls" - the Ben Kay cookbook, featuring collaborations from various of Kay's old rugby muckas such as Matt Dawson, Martin Johnson and Martin Corry with famous chefs such as Alain Roux, Pierre Koffmann and Marcus Wareing.

According to the official blurb, the result is a uniquely diverse collection of 95 recipes in which players’ favourite dishes sit alongside chefs’ signature choices. For rugby fans and foodies it looks like a must for this year's Christmas list and, being a bit of an amateur dabbler in the kitchen department myself, some heavy hints may have to be fired in the direction of Mrs F.

That said, I am a little concerned as to what to expect in bookshops next:

Hoovering with Gavin Henson?

Ironing with Austin Healy?

Dusting with Matt Stevens?
