toad in the hole is boring and crap :-D

Depends how you make it and what you serve it with, sometimes the simplest meals are the best.

if you now want to start a campaign for the promotion of boiled beef and cabbage, then good on you

Like i said, who's been doing your cooking -beef and cabbage- WTF is that? I dont know anything about beef and cabbage.

Hudson, you like Indian food then? It is one of the best things in Britain at the moment.

a Yorkshire Pudding batter mix,

Just as easy to use flour, an egg and a bit of milk. Better and cheaper too.

Boiled beef, can be extremely succulent especially if you have a tough cut then flavor the liquid properly. I seal my beef, then boil for about two hours in stock and red wine, add carrots then season, flavor and thicken.

Delicious. I pot roast in the oven for several hours. Works best with the cheap cuts like brisket. Nice with beef heart too.

I'm a bit of a Yorkshire pudding master, i never use packets. Do you know the secret to great Yorkshires thats the question?

I wouldn't eat heart dude or tongue. Did you see that Gordon Ramsey clip where he ate a snake heart whilst it was still beating, he said he could still feel it beating after he swallowed.

Do you have any idea of the fat content in a standard curry? Its massive.

that is one dish. in general indian cuisine is not known to be fat or heavy. usually the non domestic food is modified for the needs of the locals. that curry might be 100times better in india. ;)

healthier maybe i wouldnt say better.

come on all those deep fried samosas, bhaji s, tikka's, poppadoms, kebabs, currys. I know that the Indians are generally a skinny bunch, but so are the Poles and their food is fatty.

Nah its something more sinister as to why many Brits are fat IMO.

Chinese take away in the UK is a real fatty food, I dread to think of the amount of fat in a standard chicken curry with egg fried rice - Way over 10% i reckon.

their metabolism must be better then and the genes. ;)

The reason Indian restaurants and takeaways serve fatty food over here is because they use a lot of fat during cooking. This is done because they have to fry the food quickly. Lamb is generally quite fatty, but when I make keema masala (to an authentic recipe), there is hardly any fat or grease. This is because I make sure it is well-cooked, and this takes the best part of an hour. But if I order the same dish at an Indian takeaway, it arrives in 10 minutes, and is absolutely swimming in fat. It's not the dish which makes a meal fat, it's the cooking technique - if you don't cook things from scratch, anyway.

Indian cooking is definitely not free of fat, though - try ghee, halva or ras malai for starters ;)

that curry might be 100times better in india. ;)

It is 100 times more likely to give you dysentery :)

Lack of activity + too much convenience food, I'd say.

I love the British food I buy or make regularly - and I'm not fat. I am very active though.

Sinister? Perhaps it's just that they consume more calories than they burn. Most (and I mean most) people turn on the TV as soon as they get home from work (of after they get up, in the case of the unemployed) and eat high-fat, high-sodium processed crap. This wasn't the case in the 1950s, when, believe it or not, many families would go for a walk together after a home-cooked dinner made from fresh ingredients. It's simple. Consume 3000-4000 calories every day and do no exercise and you'll get fat.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that I consume 5000 calories a day on work days, but I burn it off.

Fortunately, when I'm not working, I don't eat much - I don't even want to imagine how fat I'd be if I ate all that and didn't work, lol.

My brother was on exercise with the Royal Marines in Norway, and they had winter rations of 9000 calories a day, but they were all fit as butcher's dogs.

how? any 'special activity'? when visiting my gym i see people struggle to burn 1000cal. thats approx 1hr on the running track... ;)

id stick that genetics(metabolism), selection of food and lack of movement is people making fat. germans are 2nd in europe btw ;)

Ive known many Poles that live or have lived in the UK that turn into big fat munsters after a few months, many work harder than they ever did in Poland.....

It aint friggen genes sascha, the Brits have never been a fat nation, the yankees are fat as a leading capitalist nation and the Brits are right behind them. Genetically modified foods packed with all kinds of crap in the name of profit thats the issue right there. Profit first... BOOM - and screw the people.

Who gives a sh1t as long as big business makes big money and the government get's their slice.

I think the crematorium probably beat you to it last year when he died... ;)

it's November 5th and as a true Brit it's hard to control myself

The advantage of having a garden that backs onto open fields, towns firework show just at my backdoor :)

So the best thing for so many of you Brits about living in Britain is eating food you can make in any country that has a grocers'.

Yes,nothing about it being the home of western democracy and habius corpus, nothing about it never having fallen to an invader in hundreds of years,nothing to do with the freedoms from petty religious oppression we all benefit from, its the cucumber sarnies......
