The kebab ‘meat’ is bob on

Was it ever meat anyway?
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Have you tried Jack fruit yet? Done right it's supposed to resemble pulled pork type stuff

The issue is ‘doing it right’

Jackfruit sits firmly in the Okra category: fuck it up even a little and it’s the devil’s food
I like it. What is it?

Not vegan (I cant give up cheese), but I really like Linda's mozzarella 1/4 pounder burgers. May prefer them to real burgers, in fact.

For DL, transferred from the other thread:

In what proportions? Or is it like KFC, a secret?


Grate 400g ginger and 100g turmeric. Hideous job, wear gloves. Heat 2 litres of water to 60 deg, turn the heat off. Add the grated shit and 10 peppercorns, let it stew for 2 hours or so. Sieve all the crap out. Add the juice of 4 lemons and honey to taste, maybe 2 tbsp.

It’s important not to overheat the ginger and turmeric. Keep it in the fridge, drink a shot glassful daily.

I have it too, and noticed a reduction in general joint pain, particularly first thing in the morning after a week or so. Aches come back if I stop taking it.

I've raved about this US brewery before on here, so this story is very encouraging for your chances of picking one of these beers off a UK shelf.
KBS, Backwoods Bastard, and most importantly CBS, BUY ON SIGHT.

All Day IPA is great for the summer BBQ season. Not keen on the darker stuff (careful!)

I'll keep an eye out. They're on my Try On Sight list whenever I find myself in some dive bar with a leather bound menu of bottles in the cellar...

Decent brewery :drunk:

I have had -

All day IPA
Centennial IPA
Dirty Bastard
Mosaic Promise
Azacca IPA
Pale Joe

I also am not a great fan of darker things....
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Yeah, you and Kiko both. :D
So I won't be recommending that rather nice dark Beligian ale they have in M&S just now. It's £2.50 for a little bottle, but currently 3 for a fiver. And an 8%-er as I recall.

When you change your diet it’s funny how quickly all the tastes you think you have change.

I gave up diary milk about six months ago and if I have it now in coffee it actually tastes weirdly unpleasant. I’m going the same way with butter.

Not sure if you do restaurants on here?

Anyway, went out to Hawksmoor for the first time last night and had a rib eye with grilled bone marrow. It was fucking epic, definitely worth a try if you have one close by.

I was at the one in Manchester the night the waiter sold a 6K bottle of wine for £60, unfortunately it wasn't to us. Steak was great.

Señora Musta is a tea fanatic. At the moment she is mainly drinking a stupidly expensive green tea that only grows on the south facing slopes of a valley in Eastern Japan, is kept in the shade for 30 days before harvesting, and is infused at 60° for three minutes.
Fuckin mental.
Tastes ok if you like green tea. Not patch on t' Taylor's.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
