Kate Bush teaches Delia how to cook rice

If like me you are still smarting at not having tickets to the Kate Bush comeback concerts then you may well find some solace in this video as highlighted in the Independent.

This is the iconic moment she appeared before a confused-looking Delia Smith to talk vegetarianism, adding Marmite to vegetables and difficult task of cooking rice ("You just add it to salt water, really," she wisely recounts). The year was 1980. The show was part of the Smith’s BBC Cookery Course series.

"One day I had a stew and there was a bit of meat in the stew and it was so raw that I just identified immediately that this was an animal and I just thought, 'No, I’m not into this,'" she tells Smith, still confused, of the day she decided a vegetable based diet was the way forward.

The rest of the clip sees her sagely discussing the benefits of leaving apple skins in a Waldorf Salad and explaining how to eat seeds.

"You can just sprinkle them over salads, which is fantastic," Bush says.

"I see…" Delia adds. She’s still confused.

"But in fact it’s quite nice by itself. It makes you feel a bit like a parrot."
