In our two latest radio shows for EGH Media, Matthew discussed Richard III (including his own meeting with the king) and other monarchs or heads of state whose remains have no known resting place, including Alfred the Great.
If you missed either show, you can listen to them below.
Don't forget to tune in on April 23 for our special St George's Day show.
Last month, Matthew attended the press conference we all wanted to be at ... where the answer to the question 'is it Richard?' was revealed. Not only that, but he found himself face to face with the man himself. Matthew related his unforgettable experience to the Birmingham Post.
I went upstairs and there was the skeleton laid out. It was an extraordinary experience.
Cullen skink is a hearty Scottish fish soup or stew from a wee place called Cullen in NE Scotland.
There are loads of variants on this traditional dish so here is the version that I am cooking today.
Herbs and seasoning
Pour the milk into a pan and bring it to a simmer. Add the smoked haddock and seasoning. I leave the skin on so that it stays together. Poach for a few minutes then remove the fish and place to one side.
Add cubed potatoes and chopped shallots to the milk and poach until they are soft.
Add cream and herbs. Place fish on top and warm through again.
Serve with oat bread and some veg. I have served it with string beans today.
