Must be going on two years since I stopped eating meat, can’t really remember. Don’t miss it at all but we went out last night to Lewes latest ‘posh’ restaurant and I thought fuck it and had pheasant. It was very good.

Random thoughts are:
- Didn’t make me feel like I’m missing anything generally. Happy to go another long while.
- If you’re going to eat meat, wild game is probably your best shot (ho ho) at being ethical and sustainable. Low carbon and at least it’s not farmed.
- I guess I’m a sucker for the whole thing about breaking your own rules.

So it didn’t change owt but I wouldn’t lose sleep about doing summat similar again.

mussels - they don't have brains, their cultivation doesnt use up any land [or freshwater], don't need fertiliser, etc.

They provoke an interesting debate in veganworld as it goes, no central nervous system? Not an animal. There are naysayers out there, obvs.

yeah, i mean, a mussel is of course an animal, of sorts. but it's undeniably a pretty distant relative of most other animals. and is eating one obviously [ethically or environmentally] worse than eating say a bunch of true vege stuff which has been planted and harvested with machines which tear up the earth and whilst growing repeatedly blasted with all manner of nasty pesticides and fertilisers? surely not.

Turns out it's not as good as expected.

Went round to a friends house with Mrs OEE. She said she’d make “a bit of stew”. Fair enough we thought

What ensued was one of the tastiest meals I’ve ever had. A concoction of Short-rib of beef in Guinness cooked for several hours yesterday, rested, and cooked again today. Oh Mama

Bit of stew, indeed

Trying a Jam Shed Malbec tonight.
Dark fruity and smooth, tasty.
Carbon neutral too, another dolphin saved.

There’s a vegan cafe in Lewes, quite decent, has decided to branch out and do a fine dining evening thing. They do a seven course tasting menu with drinks pairings. It was really quite good, bit too clever and overpriced but fair play for what they’re trying to do.

Exciting revelation: one of the drinks was Welsh Chardonnay, biodynamic and organic and all that. Who knew such a thing existed?

:lol: I am indeed a fully certified and paid-up member of the middle class. We were however granted special dispensation not to call the kids Tarquin and Felicity.

If you're looking for smoky, peaty then Talisker is a sound choice, never met any whisky drinker who didn't like it.
Highland Park is slightly less peaty and not smoky, a great whisky imo.
Lagavulin is a great peaty whisky, a bit ott for my taste but lots of people love it.
My fave is Yamazaki, but it's Japanese.


Well, there's me... but then, strictly speaking, we haven't met and I would never go looking for peaty/smoky whisky. Strictly a Highland/Speyside drinker, me. Which is why I'm not being more helpful.

There's always one...
:roll:


Two. Talisker is like drinking antiseptic.

dalwhinie hits those spots better than any other. classic scotch without the the sickly toffy tastes of a speyside, a tad of peat, but nothing like the big islays and the little brother, dalwhnnie winter's gold is on offer in tesco.

Got a tagine for Christmas and just tried it out. I s’pose it’s just a pressure cooker really, after a fashion; seems to work really well though.

Not sure this is the right thread for this, but I for one shall be purchasing the new Brewdog, likely in some quantity, and not because its apparently dry January.

I like it. What is it?

Think I’m a bit in love with Meera Sodha. She’s got her Gujerati heritage, huge knowledge of Asian food generally but also grew up in Lincolnshire so does loads of recipes converted to British seasonal veg.

I just made Brussels sprouts nasi goreng. Fuck me, what a ridiculously unexpected marvel.
