We’ve got a lovely bunch of coconut conundrums | Kitchen Aide

For such a popular ‘hero’ ingredient, it ain’t half confusing. Let our experts run you through the difference in coconut products

What’s the difference between coconut milk, coconut cream (which both come in tins) and creamed coconut (which comes as a block)? There’s also cream of coconut (which also comes in a tin) and coconut oil, but they’re not as easily confused with the others. And then there’s powdered coconut milk … Help!
Elisabeth, Guildford, Surrey

From yoghurt and cream to milk and water, you can’t move for coconut these days. That’s mostly down to its recent anointment in the west as some miracle vegan alternative to dairy, so you’d imagine it would be in producers’ interests not to bewilder us in this way, but there you go.

Michael Gove is peddling the same old immigration myths. Let’s not fall for them | Maya Goodfellow
The Tories’ well-worn election arguments are playing out again, but there are unhelpful claims from sections of the left, too“The starting point is always numbers,” the late, great theorist Stuart Hall wrote about reporting on migration and race in 1979. But as “soon as you say numbers, it doesn’t matter how you wrap it up – there is only one lesson to be drawn, the numbers are growing. There are too many of them.” This week Michael Gove demonstrated that this is as true now as it was 40 years ago, when he issued a warning about immigration levels. The government’s net migration target may be no more, but the same old anti-immigration arguments are still treated, in some quarters, as gospel.On Monday morning, Gove was in the pages of the Times weighing in on the supposed “dangers” of “uncontrolled” and “unlimited” immigration. Although Labour has yet to agree its migration policy for the election, Gove referred to the motion at Labour conference that called on the party to maintain and extend free movement, denouncing this position as “extreme”. It would, he wrote, “mean massive pressure on public services – creating a shortage of school places, putting a huge strain on the NHS and increasing demand for housing”. Continue reading...

Top 10 golden age detective novels
For some, ‘cosy crime’ of the 1920s and 30s is class-ridden and formulaic – but classic authors such as Agatha Christie and Josephine Tey paved the way for modern fiction as we know itJust how golden was the golden age of crime fiction? For some, the celebrated flowering of the detective story in the 1920s and 30s gave us enduringly popular, elegantly written novels that have yet to be bettered. The period introduced us to household names such as Christie, Sayers, Allingham and Tey, and established detective fiction as a brand through those addictively collectable green and white Penguins. For others, golden age or “cosy” crime, is a lowbrow, sanitised form of fiction; class-ridden and formulaic, and full of meddlesome British spinsters and eccentric foreigners whose lives (and deaths) were somehow less real than those developing concurrently on the hardboiled American streets.It’s no mystery that detective stories flourished in Britain after the first world war: loss, violence and social change are at the heart of most crime novels, and there’s surely no period in our history when all three were experienced more deeply. But it took the second world war and its aftermath to bring them to maturity; many of the authors whose careers began 20 years earlier wrote their best books in the 1940s and 50s. Continue reading...
