  • All Things Local community magazine - RAC Patrolman Marc Tomlinson
    Marc about his role What is the best moment you ve experienced so far whilst at work I would have to say the time I went to a callout in Oxford It was a broken down vehicle being driven by Ronnie Barker It was really funny Not the break down of course What is the most rewarding thing about your job Just knowing that I m part of an important team that helps all types of people with their everyday motoring needs What do you least like about your job The weather can be a bit of a downer When it s raining and windy it makes the job a lot harder to do What is the most dangerous situation that you ve encountered Working at the roadside is very dangerous nowadays with the roads being so busy and people could be a bit more considerate on the roads After all nobody picks where to break down it s just as and when Describe one of the funniest moments you ve experienced in your job Erm going to a young couple locked out of their car down a country lane with all their clothes locked in the car it didn t take much working out what they had been up to In your experience what is the most common reason for being called out Keys locked in the vehicles using the wrong fuel and good old flat batteries How do you like to relax and unwind I like a drop of red wine or a real ale What are your hobbies interests outside of work I enjoy Enduro riding which is a motorbike sport I also love walking and gardening What s your favourite holiday destination I like most of Greece France is ok and there are some lovely places

  • All Things Local community magazine - recipe - Hunter's Pie
    When buying tomatoes try not to take them from a supermarket refrigerator cold really kills the flavour If possible it s best to grow tomatoes yourself as the ones we see in the shops are often picked when green and unnaturally ripened with gases before they end up on the shelf However if you can get your hands on some fresh ones then there s nothing better than a ripe tomato salad drizzled with balsamic vinegar and topped with torn basil and chunks of mozzarella Hunter s Chicken Ingredients 6 large chicken breasts 1 large onion Olive oil 2 cloves of garlic diced 1 tin of chopped tomatoes 1 tin of peeled plum tomatoes 1 tbsp tomato puree 100g mascarpone cheese 125g mushrooms sliced 12 olives halved and stoned A large handful of fresh basil washed and torn Salt and pepper Method 1 Heat the oven to 190 degrees C fan oven or gas mark 5 2 Fry the onion and garlic in 2tbsp oil over a low heat for a minute or two but don t let them brown 3 Tip the tins of tomatoes into the pan and stir in the tomato puree and a dash of salt and pepper 4 Simmer on a low heat for around 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened then add the olives and mushrooms and simmer for a further 5 minutes 5 Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the mascarpone and basil leaves 6 In another pan heat a lttle oil and fry the chicken for a few minutes until it begins to brown on both sides then place the breasts side by side in a baking dish 7 Pour over the sauce and pop the dish into the middle shelf of the oven for around 30 minutes
