Sex guaranteed or your money back on a fish pie!

A strange but delicious meal idea and offer on Valentine's Day

by Carol Muskoron

It's hard to surprise us here at but luxury ready meal maker Charlie Bingham (pictured left) has managed it with his Valentine's Day offer. He's created singing ready meals which play you Marvin Gaye's 'Let's Get It On' - and says that 'if you don’t get lucky between the sheets' after eating them, you'll get your money back.  


There won't be a nationwide stampede to the ready meal counters for the Lasagne, Fish Pie and Macaroni Cheese meals because they are available at Waitrose Canary Wharf for Valentine's week only. But if you do happen to be there, pick one up. After we'd all laughed our socks off at the idea, our editor, Bernadette took her singing Charlie Bigham fish pie home and was somewhat passionate about it.


Here's her verdict: 'The pie was delicious. Big chunks of salmon and haddock in a rich creamy sauce with plenty of identifiable vegetables that hadn't reduced themselves to mush by the time the dish was heated through - just under half an hour. And it was all topped with mashed potato and cheddar cheese, which melted into a satisfying crunch after its time in the stove. There was an interesting interlude later that night when I simply couldn't figure out what was the strange noise coming from the kitchen. I eventually tracked down the pie's wrapping, singing happily to itself in the recycling bin in the kitchen.'


If you can't get your hands on a singing fish pie, get the Charlie Bigham's Fish Pie in the ordinary packaging, for £5 at It feeds too, and it's gorgeous served with a salad and some Valentine's Day wine. We tried the singing lasagne and that was fabulous too. But whatever you're eating on Valentine's Day, here's some Marvin Gaye to help get you in the mood for love. And here are yet more sexy Valentine's Day food ideas and recipes...
