Re: [Food] Marriages made in Heaven

There seems to be lot of pregnant midnight cravings combinations out there.

Ice cream! ..... has anyone ever had any experience of these arty-farty-nuvo-kwizine-cheffy combinations of vanilla and fresh black pepper or vanilla and basil? Wouldn't want to put either on my apple and rhubarb crumble.

You don't know what you're missing, that's all.... means there will be more around for me
Interestingly it would appear that some "artsy fartsy" combos like cheese and apples actually have a farmer heritage.

And apple and rhubarb crumble sounds so...absolutely... bourgeois.
Mon dieu!
Will someone kindly give me my pastasciutta before these urbanites corrupt my perfectly popular eating habits?...

Well, I will be making durian ice-cream in the next days!

(it's stinking up the fridge, so I have to use it)

I always thought pork and apple sauce was universal and as old as the hills. We always had apple sauce with the roast pork as a kid, I never remember it being any different.
Another unusual one, cheddar cheese and strawberry jam, preferably on a McVities digestive
Agree!

My father introduced me to a chedder and strawberry jam sandwich, saying it was what he ate as a kid ( 1940's)
It doesn't taste half bad.

I also like philadelphia and strawberry jam on a sandwich or digestive biscuit.

I used to make those for my school lunches, a loaf's worth at a time, and then freeze them in individual baggies to bring to school!

Re: [Food] Marriages made in Heaven

Chocolate and chilies - two weeks ago I made mole sauce, which we've been eating with various meats and in burritos.

Chocolate-chili ice cream

Sweet and hot with a touch of bitter

Mango, slightly sweetened steamed glutinous rice and coconut milk cooked with a bit of corn starch, sugar and salt. Classic Thai dessert. Nom, nom.

Re: [Food] Marriages made in Heaven

Hasn't been mentioned yet... chicken & tomato sandwich with Branston Pickle... preferably white bread with salted butter.....
1 of the best sandwich combinations ever...

Mashed banana on toast..... always gets a frown from the Swiss

Apple sandwiches... also white bread with salted butter....

If anyone can make good old English shepherds pie(no, I can't cook to save my life).... invite me over... I would kill to taste that again, if it has Branston Pickle on it I will rape too.... (before I kill)......

MMMM, I wonder how some chocolate flakes and habanero or rocoto slices would go in the durian icecream?

Re: [Food] Marriages made in Heaven

Creamy, buttery mashed potato with a couple of soft fried eggs on top, with masses of salt and freshly ground black pepper. The ultimate comfort food on a cold, dank night.

When I first came to Switzerland I always ate with the rest of the staff where I worked. The food was good, fresh and diverse but i craved egg and chips, especially the nice fat, fresh chips.

Anyway one night I was allowed to choose staff tea and that's what I requested. When it was served up a few of the Swiss staff complained about having to eat English food. A lot of it went over my head as I was just learning German, until the chef came out and banged a bag of spuds and a tray of eggs on the table. He asked what the difference was between the English egg and chips and the Swiss röshti und ei!

In 1984, I spent 7 weeks in three trips over a 2 month period in England.

I survived on beer, breakfast, and driving down to Dover to take the hovercraft over to France for lunch (left the car in England).

Company wondered how I was doing 1700 miles/week when I was working 1 mile from the hotel!

Close, but I prefer it with a blend of my 20+ home grown, freshly chopped! (sriracha is a bit salty)

Also nice to dip your fondue in.

I though that was leftover beer with a raw egg and a shot of vodka?
