Only a week or so to go, so time for a bump methinks.

Come on folks, this is a LiB outing. The original and still the best KFC run in the country.

I live in Basel and would LOVE to go. However, a quick question: what time will everyone meet? I have to be at the hospital until Noon....

We will meet around noon. However, until everybody shows up, it historically always turned out to be 12:30-1pm....so you might be able to make it afterall.

Re: The Quest for a KFC 6-piece (an official LIB run) the 10th edition

Can someone tell me if they also have buttermilk biscuits/corn on the cob/mashed potatoes and gravy or coleslaw? For me those sides were as important as the chicken itself. Last time I visited a KFC in the UK I was sorely disappointed that there were only fries and runny mashed potatoes with some industrial-type brown sauce.

Karl, they do have corn on the cob...and if I remember correctly coleslaw. Unfortunately, the other items are definitely not available.

Okay, I'll let you guys have my recipe for buttermilk biscuits. You can bake your own and then the meal will be complete

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 scant tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425 F/215 C Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Transfer to a food processor. Cut butter into pats and add to flour, then pulse 5 or 6 times until the mixture resembles rough crumbs. (Alternatively, cut butter into flour in the mixing bowl using a fork or a pastry cutter.) Return dough to bowl, add buttermilk and stir with a fork until it forms a rough ball.

Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and pat it down into a rough rectangle, about an inch thick. Fold it over and gently pat it down again. Repeat. Cover the dough loosely with a kitchen towel and allow it to rest for 30 minutes.

Gently pat out the dough some more, so that the rectangle is roughly 10 inches by 6 inches. Cut dough into biscuits using a floured glass or biscuit cutter. Do not twist cutter when cutting; this crimps the edges of the biscuit and impedes its rise.

Place biscuits on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Serves 6 to 8.

N.B. recipe can be doubled

If the ol' lady hears there are no mashed potatoes, we may not be going.

Expats in Switzerland driving to France for American crap fast food. Nothing weird about that!

Friends in Switzerland driving to France to share a good laugh and some greasy fast food which brings back good memories. Nothing weird about that!
Fixed that for you

P.S. Not only "expats" enjoy a change of culinary scenery from time to time, you know?
