Cooked up theology

Sir: Jennifer Paterson's food pieces are all very well, but are tending, I would suggest, to become over-egged with Papism. We cannot eat indulgences or attend courses in Cordon Bleu presented by Saint Notburga in the manner of Albert Roux or Alistair Little.

So would it not be better for her to write occasional articles on religious matters, flavoured perhaps with apposite culinary references and leave the food section to wholly secular cooks?
