Re: the Food Thread
What spices do you recommend? reason being: We're making it for tea today now!
I might stick some cumin in there next time or maybe some cardamom pods. Decent shake of veggie worcester sauce too whilst you're at it.
Its in the oven now, we went for some veggie worcester sauce in the end. Smells goooood
i watched that raymond blanc thing last week. unfortunately my perception of french culinary culture is negative having spent 6months in paris. so many arrogant attitudes - all that stuff about french cooking being the apex of.. everything.
that's not to say that they cook some delicious things. i had so much amazing wine, cheese and meat in rural burgundy - it was unreal. it seemed as if two glasses of wine at lunch was mandatory. incroyable.
so i ended up extolling the virtues of french cooking in this post accidently. i guess they do have a point..
I agree french cooking does have a superiority complex, but I think that he (in that programme) exemplifies the best un-fussy parts. Just so childishly enthusiastic!
I picked up some 1000 page french cooking book for £7 in the charity shop I work in just before christmas, and it's so pretentious its great. Comparing and contrasting that to his cooking.

every day is potentially pancake day!
Lots of people say this, but do they actually have pancakes frequently? Best filling is 50:50 chocolate spread and peanutbutter. Tastes like snickers.
