Really? If they open too easily it'll be a bad 'un. You didn't eat it did you? Please tell me you didn't.

Or I had a better idea how to do it second time round. Bunged it under the grill for 3 minutes anyway.

How are you a league fan and not union?

Because I enjoy the finer things in life, from food and drink to music, literature and sport. B)

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. :)

When I read that, the voice in my head sounds like Julian Clary.

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.

Not that you weren't warned, but at least you know now.

Swan - simply delicious and although it's a red meat it actually tastes better with a nice cold Pinot or such like

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
