Best-selling author Peter May was in Inverness on Wednesday to promote his new book “The Man With No Face”.
But, even as political stormclouds gathered over Theresa May, amidst the twists and turns of Brexit, he had his mind on weightier matters.
As May, the writer not the PM, declared, prior to appearing at Eden Court: “On this momentous day in British politics, I would like to re-open the debate on whether porridge should be taken with salt or something sweet.
“I am a salt and milk man myself, and will resist any legislation to the contrary.”
However, that was the catalyst for a lively discussion between the cognoscenti in the world of oatmeal.
And one of the people who contributed to the online chat was actor Michael McKean, who played David St. Hubbins in Rob Reiner’s seminal film “This is Spinal Tap.”
His recipe for breakfast success? “Half water, half milk, dash of salt in the cooking; pat of butter and sprinkle of brown sugar OR drizzle of maple syrup.”
Half water, half milk, dash of salt in the cooking; pat of butter and sprinkle of brown sugar OR drizzle of maple syrup. So both.
