  5. Seriously Old Skool! And nothing wrong with that. Tasty, too.
  6. For 18 days, sous-vide and served with a side order of Monster Munch.
  7. Not that you weren't warned, but at least you know now.
  8. Because I enjoy the finer things in life, from food and drink to music, literature and sport.
  9. 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 =
  10. Badlands - Badlands. A band stylistically indebted to Led Zep. Not a great album, but three or four songs hit the spot.
  11. Manowar - grown men in furry nappies. Currently groovin' to Dennis (the singer from Doctor Hook who didn't sport an eyepatch) Locorriere - Post Cool. Next up is Hugh Masekela - Hope.
  12. Best to get 'em at a seaside town where they are caught - as fresh off the boat as humanly possible. And get some other mug to open the damn things up.
  13. I think they played Glastonbury one year. One of the songs they do is the Theme from 'Shaft'.

  16. King's X - Gretchen goes to Nebraska. Haven't listened to this in at least 10 years. Liking it lots.
  17. I can recommend 'Runnin' down a Dream' - a 3 DVD & 1 CD set. Two of the DVDs are a superb documentary about the band and the 3rd is the Anniversary gig in Gainesville. The CD is a collection of unreleased stuff, which isn't exactly essential, but nice to have. His latest release, however, is a monster box set of live performances. It comes in various different forms, but the 'de luxe' version runs to nine discs - CDs, DVDs, Blu-Ray and Vinyl, plus other goodies! LINK TO DETAILS
  18. You just use it to finish off a dish, same as truffle oil. Either as a dressing, or right at the end of cooking. It has a low smoke point, so you wouldn't want to use it as the main oil for cooking, regardless of the flavour.
  19. There's a lot of hysteria and hyperbole spouted about foie gras production. There have also been some shops/restaurants targeted by sickos who threaten the owners' children/family etc. True, some producers do use methods that are cruel (if not as cruel as some campaigners claim), but you can buy the stuff from ethical/humane producers too. Just check before you buy.
  20. I find you have to use it with a very light touch, or it dominates everything.
