So far, we've more or less abandoned red meat and given up on stuff like roast dinners - which is also to do with going off fat, I suppose - and 'stodge': shepherd's pie and the like; so maybe I'll be persuaded about halloumi given time.


We've gone broadly vegetarian in the bin household too - not forcing it on the kids but generally try to be vegetarian at home and for standard meals. I do allow myself the excess of meat if I'm being taken out to a nice restaurant or something. I figure going down from 95% of meals to about 2% of meals having meat in them is still a good enough change for now.


That's what I was doing too. I didn't like the idea of making other people 'go out of their way' if I was going round for dinner. But for the past three of four months I've been full on veggie (as well as mostly diary free too).

Also, halloumi is great. I think I have a cheese making kit at home somewhere, so will be making a batch of my own sometime soon!

Why the holy fuck would you make halloumi when cottage and mozzarella are so easy?

you don't trust me?

ok carmenere, first time i' can remember having that grape, it's got depth, sort of dark and quite different in flavour, can't quite describe it's difference though, it's a good leathery flavour, which i bet you don't see in any tasting notes. i generally like cabernets, if you do it's worth a try.

the cotes de gascogne; i've had a few that are too harsh and dry, this isn't. it's a mix of columbard and sauvignon, so it's sharp and refreshing.

:mrgreen: I know. Just saw it as a challenge. If I hadn't drunk most of the bottle beforehand you wouldn't have had a reply.

By way of experimentation, tried vegan ‘Italian cheese’ in lieu of Parmesan.

Utterly fucking diabolical. Don’t ever contemplate it.

Took the family out to Billy Bob's last weekend. I partook of their Coney Island Hot Dog, which is a chilli dog covered in melted cheese with a massive portion of jalapeno sauce slapped on the top. Half way through the meal, #1 looked at me and asked why my face had gone so red. Shit was hot, man!

Decent prices, okay fodder and a massive arsed playbarn out back for the nippers to go nuts in. It was, however, completely fucking rammed! So glad I booked ahead as I can't imagine the waiting time.

As an antidote to all the veganism on here I've just lunched on fresh venison kidneys.

Was coming back from dropping no1 daughter somewhere this morning when I saw at the side of the road a dead deer. Result thinks Rambo. Unfortunately no2 daughter was in the car & she's strangely squeamish so I had to drop her off at home before going back. Luckily it was still there.

The boy got to watch me gralloching it which was good for him. He's seen a deer I shot being butchered after being hung for a few days & he's seen me gutting rabbits in the field after shooting them but that's just a quick slit and a flick. Gralloching a whole deer is something different so good education.

So it'll be skinning and butchering it at the weekend. it's quite young so a couple of days hanging will suffice then I've got pan fried steaks with redcurrant & rosemary, venison wellington, salt & pepper ribs and much more to look forward to.

The kidney's were fab with a dash of Worcester sauce and a couple of fried eggs.

Any of you cunts used Yotam Ottolenghi recipes? I've seen some interesting things but, fuck me, it's all a bit, "Heat 38.9ml of olive from the western half of Sicily to 43.3 degrees"

Is it worth the effort? Or do you just take the idea and wing it?

I have mate, and so has my wife. One of her favourite things to cook for a party is one of his.


We're scientists, so perhaps this is relevant. If he starts wanting fractions of a microlitre, we got it covered.
