I quite like Nigel Slater's shows.

 

Now that Greg Wallace .... I could only warm to him if I had a flat iron handy.

Nigel Slater, long-haired? Well, more hair than me, but long-haired?

I think it depends on what series it is!

 

If a fringe approaches or reaches eye-brows then I consider it long hair on a chap, it's long to me when my hair does anyway!

I think Slater's a bit of a stiff on-screen, and he's better in print than on TV.

Is he the one who says he has the cure for vegetarianism. If so he can't be that bad.


I'm really going off meat lately and am seriously thinking of becoming a vegetarian. Or at least not eating meat

I'm finding that I'm eating a lot less meat recently. Partly this is due to the cost of responsibly sourced meat but also to keep my calorie intake under control. I joke about vegetarians but I'm really only refer to the militant type who have a right bee in their bonnet about someone else's choice to eat meat.

I have a meat and fish free Friday and have done for a few years now, just to try and get me to think differently and plan ahead a little.

 

It usually ends up me eating beans on toast...

Right, thinking caps on ladies and gents. I'm making some crumpets from scratch later today and tomorrow, but I'm struggling to find chef rings to fry them in. I thought about chopping up a couple of tin cans into hoops. Apparently this isn't a good idea and I could get poisoned.

 

Is this true?

Are you doing them in fat or on a griddle placed directly above a gas burner.

 

A tin can is a steel can with a thin coating of tin.

 

Gas burner ----- 10000 C at flame, at least 6000 C on a griddle surface

Lard ---------------smoke point ~2000 C

 

Tin melting point: 2210 C, though tin-vapour release is probably higher for a tin can because the mobile tin will fuse into an alloy with the steel at high temperatures

i.e. you run the risk of both inhaling tin vapour and marking your cooker.

I agree there. I have even seen some vegans saying that if you don't go vegan like, straightway, you may as well not bother.

The latter, probably a dry frying pan.

 

I managed to find of couple of presentation rings at Asda, they're not big enough but it'll be reet. Smaller crumpets.

Ridiculous, and liable to put off potential Vegans, so they're not helping their cause either. Reminds me of that character in 'The Simpsons' who claims to be an 8th-level vegan - he doesn't eat anything that casts a shadow. :rolleyes:

There are actually vegans like that. They think someone stopping eating meat but not becoming extreme are 'harming the cause'. They even have a go at regular vegetarians. As you say, ridiculous.

So are we definitely a no-no with the DIY crumpet rings? Cos I've a ##### load of tuna cans winking at me.

 

Btw, who cooks crumpets in lard?

Crumpets seem like puff pasty in that its a lot less fuss to by them ready made and you're not really gaining much by making them yourselves. I admire the effort though. 

 

One a side note, my missus bullied me into ordering one of these

Hasn't arrived yet so I don't know whether it is a genius purchase or another foodie gadget that never gets used.

If you don't use it for pizza, it's quite a nice heat source for sitting outdoors on an evening.
