‘It’s like Marmite’ is a widely used phrase to describe an ambiguous feeling of love or hate – as experienced by tasters of this widely enjoyed savoury spread. I personally love the tangy bite first experienced when growing up either on toast or as a hot drink in the Winter months. But I have friends who loathe it with a passion. So here is my ‘Love or Hate’ Recipe offering – and if you and your loved ones like Marmite, it really does add the relish you will enjoy with this hearty Cottage Pie.
