  1. rachael woodhouse says

    Mine would be fresh fruit trifle, everyone loves a bit of trifle & i just love to make it & see it build up :)

  2. Jane Willis says

    Desert Island dish? It would depend what I could forage and what i had with me when I was stranded. I’d hope to have a bag of lentils then I could make dhal and add whatever I could find in the way of wild herbs, veg and fish.

  3. Emma Bennett says

    Hmm, as for my Desert Island Dish, I think it would have to be a salted caramel and evap rice pudding that my mum makes, not sure if there’s a similar recipe in the book or whether it’s as good as my mum’s though!

  4. Darlene Taylor says

    Mmm the images being on a desert island conjures up~ peace in paradise :) My Desert Island Dish would be Snapper fish seasoned with salt leftover from sun evaporated sea water and flavoured with freshly fallen coconut all washed down with fermented pineapple juice ;)

  5. Sarah Forrester says

    For my desert island dish I would find all the ingredients available on my desert island and see what I could come up with ! I am guessing – prawn and seaweed and and maybe some sort of coconut and banana dish ! Of course if you mean desert island as in favourite – any sort of risotto and Banoffee Pie for pudding – mmm !

  6. Heidi Roberts says

    My Desert Island Dish would be a spice mix of (Maldon) sea salt, dried seeweed, dried chillies and any other herbs I could find on the island. With this any fish or fruit would taste great!!

  7. Katherine Coldicott says

    Well I presume the weather will be nice on my desert island so I’d go for ice cream. Love pistachio flavour so I’d choose that.

  8. Jeff Wolf says

    Something I could eat every day without getting tired of it? Hmmm….tricky. How about a traditional sunday Roast Beef and all the trimmings?

  9. Sylvia Leaver says

    I had an absolutely fabulous meal that was all sea food once on an island in Kenya. I would hope that I could catch something from the sea to cook to perfection but I doubt if I could make anything as fantastic as that meal that was all caught the same morning.

  10. Judith Allen says

    Everyone is being so sensible! I’m going to say a completely ridiculous dish, that I know I couldn’t really have on a desert island, but I could dream. Warm chocolate brownie and vanilla icecream. mmmmmm.

  11. Maisie Young says

    My Desert Island dish would be a full roast, however this may just be because we’ve just had Christmas and I really enjoyed it! xx

  12. Lynn Savage says

    It would have to be the full works roast dinner – roast lamb, roast potatoes and parsnips, mixed vegetables, mint sauce and gravy

  13. Emma Hicks says

    Steak (medium rare), stilton sauce, home made chips, home made onion rings, garlic mushrooms & buttery corn on the cob.

  14. Jaki Smith says

    Taking this to be complete fantasy and not having to be made out of things I can forage, I would have to have spaghetti bolognese as my Desert Island Dish!

  15. ClareinMaldon says

    It would have to be sea bass pan fried with Maldon sea salt, lemon and harissa. Served on a bed of cous cous. Naturally these are must-have ingredients when one is marooned on a dessert island ;)

  16. Natalie holland says

    I love Asian food and there is a really simple dish I love which is a parcel cooked in the oven of cooked rice, shitake mushrooms, pak choi, a salmon fillet, ginger, garlic, chili and soy sauce. Simple to cook and delicious to eat, I could eat it every day of the week x

  17. Emma Farrell says

    The dish I couldn’t live without – homemade cottage pie. Simple plesure with all that fancy fish & fruit about!

  18. Becky John says

    I think I could cope without most things on a Desert island, but I couldn’t live without a plain old bacon sandwich!

  19. SW Lee says

    My dish would have to be a selection of sushi and sashimi, maybe wouldn’t be a problem if the island is surrounded by fish!

  20. Janice Street says

    Dessert Island Dish – Barbequed chicken served with rice made with coconut, pineapple and any other tropical fruit that I could find. Delicious!

  21. Joanne Crosby says

    Whatever fish was available, really, served with edible leaves, maybe some fruit – it would all depend on where I was deserted and what was available

  22. Jayne B says

    That would have to be a Thai chicken curry made from scratch with fish sauce, shrimp paste, kafir lime leaves, galangal etc. Delish!

  23. Chris Bell says

    Lol…it’s such a simple thing – But I could not live without having my Sunday Roast with all of the trimmings, I mean how could you?

  24. Emma Smith says

    Mmmm, tough one as there are so many, but probably a nice juicy piece of sirloin steak, home made fat chips and mushrooms!

  25. Pat Machin says

    I would hope a chicken coop would be washed up with me and a (waterproof container of Maldon Sea Salt.

    Poached eggs with just a pinch of salt sprinkled over would be perfect.
