  1. I've had a few cans of lager today, inter mingled with a few glasses of white wine here n there, and the obligatory couple of glasses of Sherry when I went to see my Aunt this morning for my new jumper. For the rest of the evening I'll be getting stuck into a bottle of Grahams 15 year old Port, reckon I might get the cheese board out too.... What about you then?
  2. 'tis the season to stuff yourself stupid, so with a nod to the what's your tipple thread....what are you currently eating? for me, it's home made dalek shortbread
  3. I'm sure this has been discussed before on here, but given I was having the discussion in another thread (a couple in fact) I thought I'd start a dedicated one to save those going off topic (couldn't find a similar thread, apologies if it exists). So I've always been sympathetic to Vegetarianism even though I've never been one myself, and never thought I could because I eat (ate) a lot of meat. But recently I've been cutting down my meat consumption, both consciously and unconsciously, whilst simultaneously feeling stronger and stronger about becoming a vegetarian. I have a couple of good friends, one vegan friend especially, who are vegetarian so I've probably been influenced by them. Plus I've been researching more and more into it (see the documentaries thread). So I'm basically at the position where I think vegetarianism is right but I just haven't made that cut off. I only eat meat with my evening meal these days and even then it's only 3 or 4 times a week, so it shouldn't be a massive deal. I'm close, I might do a 1 month trial of it and see how I get on, but I thought a discussion would enlighten me. So VT... convince me (either way).
  4. So, any takers? It's bound the be the only resource in abundance in a not too distant future. Me, I'm not really feeling any cravings of that sort https://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/a/rAbqkw/forslaget-at-manniskokott-for-klimatets-skull

  6. Right, now I've moved into a new place, I've discovered some unnerving urge to try cooking. The only thing I've ever managed to cook previously was a tray of cornflake (ahem) cakes. So, I ask the lovely people of VT:- - What's your signature dish? - How easy is it? - What's in it? - How do you cook it? Nice one, Trimmy
  7. Got the invite... Will probably decline next week. Someone is right now trying to persuade me go, suggesting we "cause some anarchy" She's nice and I'm quite fond of her, but her potential to cause anarchy is fairly low IMHO.
  8. Apologies if I have missed a previous thread. However, I went to Sushi Samba at the top of Heron Tower yesterday for the wifes birthday and I must say the food was outstanding. The two stand out dishes were El Topo Sushi (Salmon, Crispy Onions and Mozzarella) and the salmon skewers with peruvian dark choc. Flavours were amazing. What are some of your other favourite restaurants to go to? I'll do mine by location. Nottingham Desi Express in Hyson Green - innocuous looking place but amazing food. London Tayyabs - amazing indian/pakistani grill foodWoodys Grill in Camden - again innocuous but the best chicken sheesh I have hadRoyal China - best dim sum aroundSushi Samba - has to be up there after thatBirmingham Hajees - great autentic foodAl Faisals - as aboveEdit: P.s. Szeczney was sitting next to us. Big lad. Ridicolous other half.
  9. I've done some searching and I can't seem to find a thread about brewing (apologies if there is one but it didn't come up in my searching). I've always liked beer but I got in to brewing my own beer about 3 years ago now, mainly for fun at first but then I progressed to trying to make the best beer possible. I started with kit beers and I've done probably 15+ of those, with mostly very positive results. I've recently taken the plunge to all grain brewing and I'm loving it! The cost of the set up for all grain is a more but the quality is higher, whereas you can get the set up for kit brewing for around £50, and still produce very good beers. I've done some great kits, including the youngs kits (American amber ale, american Pale Ale were both good), the woodfordes kits are good (made by muntons I believe) and I've done Wherry, admirals reserve, and they are all two can kits so have all liquid malt extracts and produce pretty good results. I've recently got a grainfather to to start all grain brewing and it's brilliant, the quality is brilliant, brewery quality to be honest and perhaps better. Does anyone else brew, or have you done homebrew in the past or are thinking about doing it? Anybody done anything other than beer?
  10. About time, right? Do you have a favorite sauce? How much heat can you take? https://pepperheadsforlife.com/the-scoville-scale/ This is my latest crush:
  11. Not sure if we've ever had a thread for the best and worst items on a buffet? Especially a Christmas one? I know it's tacky, but I do love a bit of cheese and pineapple on sticks. The worst for me seeing bread sticks in a jar that nobody touches. One funny story to share also, we went to a Christmas buffet years ago and my wife said that the buffet had stollen on it, but I knew it was black pudding cut circles I let this go for a while, but knowing she would be sick, I fessed up on her second piece. Suffice to say the journey home was a quiet one . Still makes laugh even now.

    So with the bacon sandwich thread getting discussion, what do people have on burgers? Normally, I'd go lettuce, then the burger with bacon and bbq sauce on top on a brioche bun. Sometimes throw a fried egg on as well. However, best one I had was in Australia and NZ.. Lettuce, Advocado, pineapple Burger and Bacon..
  13. If you were shipwrecked and stranded on a desert island but had an incredible stroke of good fortune by being able to salvage several months worth of liquor. What sort of liquor would you be most happy about salvaging-
  14. After munching my way thru a Ginsters Spicy Chicken Slice last night, I considered the amount of sheer crap food that I eat, and how much of it I enjoy. Its not much, I won't lie, but there are certain foods I love, even though they may just be dirt in a bun. So I'll start.... Ginsters Spicy Chicken Slice (Microwaved to the point of being hotter than the sun) And McChicken Sandwiches It's heartblocking stuff but I **** love it.
  15. I'm a very big fan of real ales and I'd like to set up a thread for myself and others to share our passion for the tastiest real ales we can find... If this has got legs, hopefully I'll post my general findings by tonight. There's quite a list...
  16. Simplest question in the universe. Medium for me. I like it pink in the middle, but darker on the outside.
  17. Just wondering if anyone here has ever used the food takeaway service Just-Eat to get food delivered before? I am feeling a little sceptical, I just did my first ever order by this method, as the search brought up a curry house I'd never used before, and my usual one didn't appear on their list. However, I've registered, and ordered, and apparently dinner in 35 mins. It seems a good idea, but somehow, deliveries from Indian Restaurants can be a bit hit and miss round here, I've had restaurants swear blind the door wasn't answered, despite me looking out the window onto the road at the time of deliver, and other times the definition of 45 mins seems frankly moveable. Also a bit concerned paying by card rather than at the door. I'd usually walk, but frankly it#s flipping freezing out there......' But really just wondering, does the system work well? does anyone else use it? Ever had any problems?
  18. Who thinks Fig Rolls are the best biscuits out? I DO!
  19. You have been imbued with the one-use magical power to bring back a long-lost confectionary item from any era throughout history. What would it be and why? Me, I'd bring back the Secret Bar. A crispy latticework of chocolate encasing a vein of velvety mousse... wibble.
  20. Anybody seen this new service? It's a takeaway delivery but is done by local chefs in your area, who cook at home and bring it round. We've just ordered a Mexican and are waiting for it now. Each day you go on to look there could be different chefs with different dishes. And they're limited as they only buy in certain amounts of produce. It's pretty reasonable too. Less than the price of a pizza anyway. I'm waiting on some chicken burritos, lime slaw and fiery buffalo wings. I'll report back on if it's any good. Use this link and you'll get a fiver off your first order (and I'll get a fiver off my next one too!) https://www.housebites.com/url/DQI3HC
