Meera Sodha’s recipe for barbecue beans and corn fritters
Smoky barbecue beans full of Tex-Mex spice, with crisp corn fritters and a side of avocadoI can’t deny it, I still have an enormous soft spot for the kind of American food that punctuated my 1990s childhood – shoestring fries, crunchy, golden hash browns, coleslaw with cream and milkshakes so thick, you could stand a spoon up in them – I loved them all. But my absolute favourite was barbecue beans, with their soft, sweet smokiness. Time has moved on, but my desire to eat those beans on any given day or night has not. Lucky for me, then, that they’re so easy to make at home ... Continue reading...

'A lot of the England team still haven't apologised': Eni Aluko on life after whistleblowing
When the striker called out racism in football, it ended her international career. She explains why the fight was worth itEniola Aluko is one of only 11 female footballers to have played more than 100 times for England. She has scored some of the Lionesses’ most memorable goals, was the first female pundit on Match Of The Day, and is a qualified lawyer, having graduated from Brunel University London with a first in 2008. But it is as a whistleblower that she is destined to be best remembered. And, like many whistleblowers, she has spent the subsequent years being rubbished by those she exposed.Now she has written a memoir. They Don’t Teach This is a fascinating examination of her multiple identities – British and Nigerian, a girl in a boy’s world, footballer and academic, a kid from an estate with upper-middle-class parents, a God-fearing rebel. But the book is at its best when she reveals exactly what happened after she accused the England management team of racism, and the Football Association of turning a blind eye to it. Aluko does not hold back – and few people from the football establishment emerge with their reputation intact. Continue reading...
