Courtesy of Cannon & Cannon, wild venison chorizo (so dark, it looks like a black pudding) and their Welsh air-dried ham, the latter being a very wonderful thing indeed.

So, last night's meal was part-baked M&S ciabatta rolls, finished in the oven, generously buttered and stuffed with the ham, a dob of bacon jam and a handful of salad leaves (pea and radish shoots, mainly). Delicious!

Oh yes, and a bottle of Viognier. :D

I did home-made fish cakes for the first time last night.

Absolute doddle. I thought this was meant to be difficult.

A colleague tried a cheese over the weekend, he said it was an italian blue and stunk of dog sh"t, unsure where they got it from probably somewhere artisan in the Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster, south Cumbria area. His mother in law got it and he doesn't know the name... it's a mystery.

Up until the myxomatosis outbreak in the 50's we did.Unfortunately intensive farming made pork,chicken etc cheaper to buy than rabbit.


Just invest in a couple of ferrets and go and pick your own

Running late the other night, so dropped in at the nearby Tesco for something to heat'n'eat when I got home. I don't usually shop there, and the chicken in one of their allegedly 'Finest' dishes reminded me why.

All the texture (but less flavour) of one of those plastic erasers, covered in a gloopy, starchy sauce that might, at some point, been within 20 yards of a piece of real cheese.

Genuinely bad food, and when you consider that some 'ready meals' from other supermarkets can actually be quite good, it baffles me how Tesco is a market leader when their produce is so poor.

Big thing to happen for me in the vittals department in Australia since I was last there eleven years ago was the incredible growth in the small brewery market, and the consequent improvement in the mainstream.

Spent far too much time in places like this:

http://www.archivebeerboutique.com.au/

Just about all still pasteurised but compensating with some great smoky, hoppy, malty flavours. All still cold enough to take the enamel off your teeth.

Coopers is still battling ("improving Australian pubs one tap at a time") but is no longer a stand out in the same way that it used to be.

Even the old rogues like VB and XXXX are now changing the recipes, taking out preservatives and still not tasting of very much but at least are a little more hangover friendly.

The James Squire range seems to be everywhere and is not bad at all - its one fifty lashes is one of several very good IPA;s now doing the rounds.

The whole lot of course is mouthwateringly expensive. Paid around a tenner in many places outside happy hours for a schooner and a midi. Ouch.

Loved the response from the barman at the Hero of Waterloo when I asked him if there was a happy hour. "No mate, helps keep out the amateurs".

Just had some macarons* from 'Le Moulin' in Hornchurch - lemon, strawberry and chocolate flavours. Very tasty indeed.

*not the same as macaroons - see below.

I provided the ingredients for a sausage fest on Saturday night.

We had:

Caramelised red onion sausage rolls

Lincolnshire sausagemosas

Barbecued chipolata pork & leek and apple & cider

Bangers and mash, onion gravy, red cabbage using cumberland sausages

Jalapeño sausage meatballs in a putanesque sauce with spaghetti

Traditional sausage sliced into a nutmeg pilaff.

Washed down with lots of local red wine.

Followed by bread & butter pudding, lemon and orange drizzle cake, cheesecake, and tarte tatin.

I was a bit full afterwards....

From the Awfully Posh Snack Company, chilli pork scratchings. Tasty and not too hot, but most importantly, proper scratchings, not the dry puffed pork rind you sometimes get which is always disappointing.
