Despite cookery shows now taking up 99.99% of the television schedules, most of us are not getting any better in the kitchen.
Happily, there are people out there who have a Magimix and aren’t afraid to use it.
Let the chefs at Collage Restaurant take care of dinner with today’s Big Deal on a two course meal for two.
Part of the eye-catching Radisson Blu hotel on Argyle Street, Collage Restaurant is decorated with intriguing art from Sir Peter Blake, the man behind The Beatles’ iconic Sgt Pepper cover.
The chefs like to cook classic British brasserie dishes with the occasional nod to the continent.
Put the cook book away and let the Collage team look after your taste buds.

Many people have left enthusiastic reviews like this:
‘Excellent! We had a wonderful meal at Collage. The food was so flavoursome and so rich – two courses were enough! Service was very attentive yet discreet. We have always really enjoyed our meals at Collage and this time was no exception.’ Rating 5/5
Valid until the end of November and available seven evenings a week, this is a very flexible offer.
You could use it for a pre-theatre bite, a night out with friends or an intimate dinner for two.
And, of course, it makes an excellent alternative to sitting on the sofa and watching Nigella, Gordon or Jamie cook dishes which you will never attempt.
