You don’t need a rocket or a firecracker to make a bang this Bonfire night
Ah, Bonfire night. There’s no finer time to whack some spuds in the oven and wave a sparkler or two with your nearest and dearest.

You can poach them, scramble them and you can even fill them with colourful dye and make them pop.
