Title Extra Special Fare
Setter The Tall'n
Series The Listener
Number 3910
Date 30/12/2006
Grid 1313 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble Clues to items on the Bill of Fare contain no definition part. A number of rows and columns are cyclical so that the first letter succeeds the last. Across and down clues consist of two in one case three clues, side-by-side in the order of their numbers. The second answer clued in each row or column is to be cooked (jumbled) before entry. One of the main courses holds the key to an extra special feature in the completed grid. The six unchecked letters confirm this feature, which must be delineated using eight lines of equal length but remain otherwise unmodified. Chambers Dictionary (2003) is the primary reference.
