    My friend bought the Sage Barista touch and at the same time I opted for the Sage Bambino plus. I already had a sage grinder so figured I didn't need more than the bambino. The bambino produces infinitely better coffee than the barista, despite lots of tinkering with the settings on the Barista.
  2. did anyone pick up tickets for London?
  3. Second the fresh stuff from Ocado, miles better than the M&S Jar stuff (which is still great)
  4. I bought some stuff from an italian food merchant website. They were offering 'pork liver pate' for £1 so i got some. It came in a jar and was unlike any 'pate' i'd had before. But it was bloody amazing. Anyway I decided I needed to make this amazing stuff and I found a great recipe. I actually used chicken livers bit I am sure it can be adapted for most types http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/crostini-toscane-recipe Total: 45 min Active: 10 min Yield: 6 to 8 servings Ingredients 1/4 cup extra-virgi

    I bought a moccamaster a while back, it's been amazing. (i've probably gushed about it in this thread). It took me a good while to fine one back then, but now they are available on amazon. I highly recommend. I have a Hario pour over and an aero press but the Moccamaster produces the best coffee with less fuss.
  6. It's fairly simple when you consider it but the new wave of pizza oven requires a roaring flame to remain adequately hot. This is easier said than done, not impossible but a lot of work to maintain. Obviously one of the benefits of a brick oven is the insulation and this has to be compensated by a roaring flame.
  7. This is nothin more than reminder to myself but I saw BBQ whole beef shin for sale a bit ago and it sounded ace, so cheap also
  8. I'll not read through all of this thread again so forgive any repeats. There's been a Majestic's at the end of the my road since i moved house. I'd never been into a majestic before. not for any reason other maybe subliminal snobbery. (and maybe the requirement to buy 6 bottles at a time) I went in there the other day and was blown away. Massive selection of wine, seemingly knowledgable staff who insist on you tasting the wines they have on display. on the whole a great experience. I don't know if this is the norm and i'm just a philistine but such a gre
  9. Picked up a bottle of auchentoashan American Oak fromTesco. £20 a bottle. Never seen or heard of it before but picked it up due to the price. Lovely stuff, quite light and zesty. Not the most complex but easy drinking Edit: I should have read the post above
  10. Been through various digital thermometers. The cheaper ones always fail at some point, less then 1yr. The Thermapen I've had for a couple of years, still going and its super quick.
  11. The bread is stale, rubbed with garlic, then rubbed with overripe tomatoes. drizzled with oil. Probbaly decent tomatoes though

    I signed up for Pact for the £1 offer, the coffee was really nice. Fazenda something How does it compare to the other online sellers, price wise? i thought £7 for 250g beans was a bit high, but I've been buying supermarket beans for a while now
  14. Bought a Balvenie Carribean cask. Amaze
