  1. did anyone pick up tickets for London?
  2. Second the fresh stuff from Ocado, miles better than the M&S Jar stuff (which is still great)
  3. 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-virgin olive oil 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced 1 pound rabbit livers 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and drained 2 anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry 1 tablespoon hot red pepper flakes 1 cup dry red wine Salt and pepper 12 slices Italian peasant bread, cut 3/4-inch thick Preheat the grill or broiler. In a 10 to 12-inch saute pan, heat the olive oil slowly over medium heat. Add the onion and cook slowly until soft, but not brown, about 10 minutes. Add the livers, capers, anchovies, and red pepper flakes, and cook until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Add the wine and cook until only 3 to 4 tablespoons of liquid remain, about 8 minutes. Transfer the liver mixture to a food processor and pulse on and off until blended but still lumpy -- it should not be smooth like a puree. Season to taste with salt and pepper and remove to a small mixing bowl. Grill or toast the bread on both sides and spread each piece with 1 heaping tablespoon of the liver mixture. Divide among 6 to 8 plates and serve immediately.

    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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 great place to go, especially if you're a noob
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  13. Bought a Balvenie Carribean cask. Amaze
  14. Dalwhinnie 15yo is £25 in Tesco
