I've been a member of the Virgin Winebank for a couple of years now. They debit a set amount from your account each month (default = Ł20) and you quite quickly build up a useable balance with them, which means that often when you make a purchase, the cost is already covered.

They also do plenty of special discounted offers, often with extra goodies thrown in. My last order came with a pair of beautiful Dartington Crystal wine glasses. A good wine glass really does enhance the experience in some way, whatever you're drinking.

Based on a recent promotion of theirs, I have just taken delivery of a case of 'Tall Gum' Private Bin shiraz/merlot/durif at a 40% saving, which promises to be a dark, powerful and intense red. smile.gif

Dragonfruit:

About the size of a mango. Inside and out are polar opposites. See here

It's taste is very, very bland. Similar taste and texture to melon and reminds me also of kiwi fruit. However this is neither sweet or sour. It is a little sweet but nothing like even a pear.

Still, it's something new, tripe wasn't very good either so it isn't all about being blown away.

I would suggest you try a custard apple instead a far superior fruit. Various varieties to try and all very tasty.

Swan - simply delicious and although it's a red meat it actually tastes better with a nice cold Pinot or such like
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

You're right, I find it's a little more tender than Eagle if cooked properly.

I was disappointed by eagle when I had it in Nepal, it was a bit like stewing steak if I'm honest.

How did you have Swan, mine was poached which at the time I thouhgt was rather odd but served on a bed of Coarse fish Risotto it was immense

It was deep fried in a cajun sauce and served with curly fries.

I'm partial to otter, but it's a bit "gamey".

I've never tried Otter but my Dad had it when he was away on business (Funny story actually as he still refers to it as Beaver!!) and ended up with Gout so your Game analogy is probably not far off the mark

I haven't tried Condor I have to be honest - how is it best cooked?
