As many of you may know, I am something of a Marmite addict. If you don’t know what Marmite is there are plenty of references on the Internet and if you are an Antipodean who is already looking for the comment box so you can tell me that Vegemite is better than Marmite then don’t, […]

I am not sure I can deal with the idea of Suggs being the new Captain Birds Eye.

I read the most amazing article today about McDonalds admitting it was adding milk and wheat to their french fries. (Can we call them chips now please? This is an English Weblog – In fact where I come from they fry them in beef fat anyway). Admittedly, I find it a tad strange that McDs […]

Accuracy be damned!


I don’t see myself as a Luddite but something about the obsession for accuracy these days is starting to piss me off. When I was being educated, on the occasional times I deigned to attend that is, there was always some bright spark who could quote Pi to god knows how many decimal places. To […]

Yummy… Fried Food.

I had to pop to Canada later that day so the time had come to deal with Neil, who was hanging in the back of my Land Rover making the place a little stinky. Here he is, and what a fine chap he still is if you ignore the fact he is a little floppy […]

I have meat and potato pie, with mushy peas covered in Worchester Sauce and Squirty Laughing Cow Cheese… Haute Cuisine don’t get much lower than this! Oh dear, the mouldy bits don’t taste too good. I think the pie was old. Meanwhile I thought somebody had stolen Neil this morning but he’d just slipped his […]

Tesco Finest Moussaka

No comments

I am starting to agree with Robin (the chappie who reduces food at my local Sainsburys) that the major difference between Tesco and Sainsburys normal foods and their Finest, or Taste The Difference ones is that the more expensive ones simply have less salt in them. With half a tonne of salt added to it, […]

Ah ha! Look what I found on the way home this morning. I have called him Neil. Isn’t he pretty. I guess I will have to hang him for a few days and then decide what to do with him. Where is a copy of Hugh’s Meat Book when I need one!
