Cooling off with a cocktail - 1 third prosecco, 2 thirds (Sainsbury) white grape & peach juice. Almost a Bellini and very refreshing on a day like this.

I had lunch here today - Caravan Kings Cross - and the food was excellent. Flatbread with yoghurt, pork croquettes with lime mayonnaise and trout with samphire and caper butter.

 

Outside on the square, little children played in the fountains, people lazed in the free deckchairs or on the terraces leading down to the canalside. The street food stalls were also doing good business. What has been done to a formerly run down no-go area is wonderful. :)

There's a Dishoom (Bombay cafe) and a Terence Conran restaurant opening there soon, too. The old coal drop buildings are being turned into shops and Waitrose are opening a supermarket and cookery school there.

 

Even the annoying hipsters are catered for, thanks to Shrimpy's.

What are these hipsters you speak of?
The term is in increasing use and seems to coincide with an increase in people. 'On the street' with short back and sides huge ugly beards or attempts at them, jackets that are too small and extremely tight trousers. Are they one and the same? What is the nature of this phenomenon?

A beard full of 'product', an ironic pork pie hat, the latest Apple laptop/tablet, skinny strides and probably a career in PR or marketing.

Apparently, beards are no longer hipster-chic. Too many people have them apparently.

They're the type of people who buy LPs on Record Store Day but don't actually own a turntable.

I have a big silly beard, and jeans that are too tight for me (cos I can't afford any larger sizes at the mo).

 

Am I a hipster?

 

Perhaps not as the Hull FC fans the other week unkindly referred to me as a grumpy Father Christmas.

 

Foodwise, and back on topic, I had a fantastic salad, chicken, onion wrap on Saturday night in Perpignan.  €4 and it was worth every centime.  Late night, fast food at its finest.

I got a couple of legs of mutton the other week. Very pleased with how they turned out after slow braising for 8 hours.

The other day in Java I had a meal of freshly killed (killed right in front of me) cobra followed by a big dish of fruit bat - wings and body.

A few days before that I gorged on a juicy dish of satay horse.

The cobra especially was delicious...as was the chaser of cobra blood and Chinese whisky mixed together.

Monkey was also on the menu but they had run out.

Just taken the marinaded meat out of the fridge for tonight's Curry Goat. This is my second attempt at this dish, but the first one where I've looked up recipes and tips to do it properly. The smell of the seasoned meat is already very promising.

went to my mother's to do tidy her garden up a bit:

big mug of tea and some fresh home made scones before setting off back home, beautiful. We had a good chat about stuff and some gaps were filled about one or two things.

 

I know she's my mam, but there is nothing to touch those scones.

Back from and expotition (sic) to Borough Market. The Iberico pork fillet and the morcilla (Spanish black pudding with rice) will be part of a sort of Pork Wellington thing tomorrow. The pigeon breasts and the Lord London cheese will be for the weekend, while the Scotch Pie and Wild Boar Scotch Egg have already been devoured.

 

The box of mixed macarons are for later tonight when the munchies strike.

Sometimes I really do wonder if you are a RL fan. You are doing their stereotype no good whatsoever.....but if you ever have a spare place at the dinner table I would be delighted to fill it. I'll bring the wine.

Expected news: A Yorkshire beer is voted the best in Britain.

This award gives affirmation of the old adage that Necessity is the Mother of Invention.

Obviously, in Keighley, they drink to forget.
