Are you sure they are referring to the food Kev?

I`ll bet you a pan of scouse he`s not as stupid as the cook we parted company with on Saturday.I`d just got back from Bookers when my missus grabbed me and said`Get into that kitchen,they`ve gone crackers`As I walked through the dining room I was accosted by a party of diners who were not at all happy with their food.Having run the gauntlet I was confronted by this bloke serving portions of chips some white,hard and inedible mixed with limp,burned offerrings.When asked why he said`It`s the s**t potatoes you`ve bought,it`s just the way they cook`after a frank exchange of opinions he got paid off.Anyone know a pub cook?

My post#19 re carpetbag steak. Throwing my cold porridge sandwich into the recycle bin,(b/fast sorted), I went down to the supermarket and bought a dozen Bluff oysters at $2 each. A couple of Angus steaks cost $16 but I must say that after stuffing one of the steaks with some of the oysters and a belt of Worcester sauce in the pocket I was a very happy camper. Same tonight again with baked spud and salad. I had to go back to the supermarket this morning because I had been charged twice for the steaks. The girls were very helpful and I had a refund and told them what I knew about Carpetbag steak and its origins in the States. Also called a monkey gland steak. Remember the Carpetbaggers by Harold Robbins? Originally served sitting up like a carpetbag. All very nice. Now where's that cold porridge sandwich.

$2 each for a Bluffie? That's incredible and quite an eye opener, Ronnie.
Trot back down to the supermarket, grab a few dozen, freeze them and fly 'em over to me. I'll give you five bucks each for them - after I've checked them all out first, of course.

PS don't mention it to John T, though!!

Kina! Last feast was at Waihou Bay inside Cape Runaway walking in the shallows half way up the shins and picking up the Kina , breaking them open , scooping out the guts and with a deft swipe of the finger, swiping out the delicious layer of roe inside the shell.
Take a pile back to camp, spread the roe on a piece of sourdough , pepper, a dash of Balsamic and reach a state of satiation never before experienced .

Haven't tried it but maybe I will when I go across the ditch (sorry, dutch) next year. Don't promise to like it though.

I'll give the oysters another go too - my mistake in the past seems to have been shoving the whole lot in my mouth. I'll try cutting the beasts next time.

Mind you I did get all round Italy without eating their crap pasta. I confused a waiter by asking for spaghetti with mussels without the spaghetti. Foreign muck!

I just got this image in a dream, of being cast adrift in a lifeboat with John T... the only tucker aboard - packets and packets of spaghetti, fettuccini, linguini, pappardelle, campanelle and so on, together with cans and cans of Bluff oysters. A few slabs of Guinness, but unfortunately, John was too hungry to drink anything but water! Sadly, he passed away whispering, "Stick your bloody oysters...!"
I woke up with a smile on my face.

However abstemious on grounds of taste he were to be I think you might have woken up rather chewed.

Much like the workhouse. If they don't like fruit pudding. Sod 'em.

Jesus! $2 for a Bluff oyster, strewth last time I was down there we got a sackful for a tin of white paint; and on the Kaimai and the Karu that was a regular thing.
Biggest Steak, up in Broken Hill, massive plate and it still hung over the side, and I can assure you having eaten in Diamonds they couldn't be beaten.
Yesterday went down to Jindabine had the nicest piece of Blue Grenadier and chips ever, ate then looking over the lake at the snow covered mountains, YUM.

I see that our Korean members have discovered The Galley. Beware we do not give him any Board of Trade recipes, particularly the Kromeski ones.

Let them have all the hot curry recipes and give them something else to gamble on.

They do not need to steal Kromeski, they have Kimchi.
