Bitesized: Clive’s houmous

If you call your company “Clive’s Pies” then it is perhaps reasonable for people to expect you to make pies. But Clive’s Pies make all sorts of things, including a lemon and coriander houmous. Fresh and a bit zingy and generally just like a nice houmous, I sat there enjoying this one afternoon, dipping carrot…
