I love Peak District - anyone has been there? A wonderful, wonderful place
Worthwhile going there in autumn, like in the next few weeks when it turns rusty orange and red combined with a clear morning sky...
but it's usually chinese people in some ****** run down chip shop doing the cooking and it aint great!
Best chips I ever had was in Snowdonia or just outside, en route out to England. Laughed that the chippy had a guest book, and then after a few miles and the first chip, had to turn back to get more.
Indian food is hardly "exotic" in the UK
I still think Indian food was invented in Yorkshire for their pallets. All those spices used in India are there just to keep the flies and mosquitoes away. I went to a Blue Elephant Indian in C. London had beef fillet on the menu. McDonald's in India doesn't do beef the BigMac is made with chickens which are less blessed.
they seem to be utterly mesmorised by the horror of a jar of pickled eggs in a chippie
Is the word for egg and testicle the same in Polish? Might be why.
but english breakfast..ugh far too greasy for me
The 'Saturday' breakfast in my childhood house meant no need for lunch while out malingering on the high st.
but people rarely have time these days to spend it cooking. do you know how to cook stew?
Housewifery is history. My stews are made in a pressure cooker now in less than an hour.
but still they are not as bad as toad in the hole, that really is nasty
That or bangers & mash both with onion gravy are the best comfort foods, as said. Try adding herbs to the batter like sage and douse it in gravy with mustard. That guy you saw in flip-flops, he was going home to Toady, best way to enjoy it is to let the day's elements give you a battering.
Personally I prefer the deep-fried Snickers but I've only tried them in Warsaw.
If the oil is hot enough the liquid in the batter turns to steam preventing oil seeping in. Next time try it with icee-cream and honey.
Coronation chicken is one of my fav - for the taste and colour (if prepared properly)
I like chicken with cashews. I like Raisins with Cashews. But Chicken with raisins may as well be the chicken's droppings.
