    Irmgard's Note:

    On the way home from a recent trip to England, I picked up in the airport bookstore a copy of BBC Good Food Magazine. This publication has some beautiful recipes in it. This is one of them. I guessed from the picture of the recipe that runner beans are the same as our green beans, so that is what I used. The recipe also calls for anchovies, of which I am not a fan. I substituted bacon bits.
