Fray Bentos, it seems, are only doing tinned pies now.


Not that this is any help to you, but most of the supermarkets near me still sell the FB steak and kidney puds. Damn nice they are, too.

Good to know...must just be down our way. Not had one in a long time so I'm really looking forward to trying to replicate it tomorrow.

Not a fan of sweet or dessert wines so probably not the best judge! I had one in an Austrian restaurant in Berlin and I didn't really like it.

I am quite fond of sweet wine myself. Hmm, it may be worth an investment.

So Mr HQ has been depressed all week and I've offered to cook him any meal he want's... this is what his requested.

Prawn Cocktail

Spare Ribs, Mushrooms and chips.

Black Forest Gateaux


Yes the 70's have rung and asked for their starter and main course back. I'm making it all from scratch aside from the Gateaux.

Love a prawn cocktail too...and ribs are definitely one of my favourite things. Chinese, BBQ, whatever...if it's the cage of a pig then I'm in!

Did Moroccan lamb meatballs last night in a spicy tomato sauce of smoked paprika, chilli, sumac and garlic. Put the fried meatballs back in the sauce then make a couple of wells in the sauce and crack eggs in to them, then bake for about 10 mins or so. Bloody delicious!

Think I'm going to do a pork goulash tonight. Smoked paprika again with loads of different peppers, carraway seeds and simmer a whole pork shoulder in it for 3 hours or so until it just falls apart. Wedges and sour cream on the side

OK so Prawn cocktail get the thumbs up here. The sauce was lovely I put a little more lea & perrins and lemon than usual so it had a tang and a kick.

To do my ribs I slow cook them almost like pulled pork (Go on make the wanking joke, you know you want to). I cover them in a tiny bit of oil and this amazing Cajun spice rub I have called "Slap Ya Mama" (Seriously good but addictive I have it on steak,chicken fish.) Put them in a oven prof dish with a lid add an onion cut into big chunks and a splash of water. Put them in the oven on a lowish heat for a good few hours checking them every now and then to turn them and to add a little more water to the pot. You almost want them to steam. When they get to the point where they are starting to fall apart when you touch them with a spoon drain off all the oil from the dish add your barbecue sauce until they are well covered both sides then put back in the oven for 40 minutes or whenever they have got to the stickiness you desire. Then dish up and apply to face with a massive stack of napkins as the sauce gets everywhere. I also use this same method to do chunks of pork and chicken for fajitas & burritos

If you've got a slow cooker they turn out well also.

Made bread and butter pudding the other day, think it was for the first time. ,I used slightly stale fruit wheaton bread, in an adaptation of a river cottage recipe. It was sooo good, definitely going to play about with some variations.

Bit of a treacle syrup man myself. And for the 10th year in a row, I've forgotten to buy a new frying pan.
We've got a Le Creuset pan and you need biceps like Schwarzenegger to flip the fucker. I reckon I did my back in last year

Just made my wonderful fiancé a sirloin steak dinner (sirloin steaks half price at Morrisons - two huge steaks for £4!) and it was amazing! Perfectly cooked by me - if I do say so myself! Crispy on the outside, wonderfully juicy on the inside. Perfect! Also made a very good peppercorn sauce which accompanied it very well. A resounding success!

Damn, I want steak now!

Well another V-day gone and my meal went really well. I made my better half and I a scallop and avocado ceviche to start (something I will definitely do again as it was easy and delicious), followed by a lobster fettucini which went down very nicely. The sauce was pretty much done on the fly so I don't think I could make it exactly the same again, but near enough.

Still, I'm done with seafood for the day, I want my steak!

All I've eaten today is two slices of toast and a pack of Rolos...I could devour a steak right now! But it's spaghetti meatballs tonight.

Scallop ceviche sounds good Quint...did you use lime juice?

Spaghetti and meatballs isn't a bad substitute to be fair...

Yup, about half a cup of lime juice, a little bit of meyer lemon juice too for sweetness. some capers and then a little bit of cayenne pepper for a kick, that was it for the marinade I think.

The meatballs were good but I thought we had some parmesan but didn'! It's nice to put a bit in the meat mixture as well as on top

My other half isn't a big fan of scallops but I think I'll give a ceviche a try...getting really fresh scallops is a bit of a prob though.

Made some banging cookies tonight with salted caramel choc pieces...on my 4th!

So the marmalade glaze is on the Almond and Orange cake. Hopefully it tastes as nice as it looks.

What's a good alternative to salt? I don't really like adding it to food but I find what I produce tends to be a little bland without it. I always use black pepper and often sprinkle parmesan into what I make, but I can't help but notice that it's lacking in flavour somewhat.

Any tips?

Burn him! Can't imagine not using salt...what's the reasoning behind not using it? Health? There's that lo-sodium stuff but that has a load of other crap in it like ordinary table salt has in it. Maldon sea salt is my favourite to use as it's just that...salt and nothing else.

I guess you could try soy sauce...dark is slightly less salty than light. I think I'm right in saying that. Fish sauce will most likely be too overpowering in most stuff but that's another salty alternative.

Hola! I come asking for help.

Looking for a nice place in London for lunch next Saturday. To be more specific, we are planning on going over to Greenwich then back towards Tower Bridge for the Shaaaaaard and the Gherkin. We have been recommended All Bar One by The Shard but tombe honest I am after something a little less chain-y but still something akin to a pub.

I am going to do a proper internet search but thought someone here might have a suggestion. Thank you, good Empirites.
