Old Scrote

Discussion in 'Cookery' started by Gremlin, Jun 10, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Gremlin

    Gremlin LE Good Egg (charities)

    If you never ever read another on-line recipe again, then this website should be your last visit:

    Old Scrote's Cookbook

    Read it not just for the food ideas but the sheer quality of the observations and the humour, it is a proper blokish read. Here are two examples:


    ARRSE doesn't write cookbooks, but if it did.......

    (and before anybody gets smart-arrsed about it, yes I realise that it does now!)



    Edited to add:

    I should also point out that It has seriously good recipes from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, India, China. Mittle Europe and the Middle East. In fact pretty much everywhere except America and Australasia which is a great shame.

    If you want a good traditional recipe it is probably on there somewhere.

    A countrymans cookbook is a close to an arrsse cookbook as you can get!

    Also very true, but not available on-line unfortunately!

    I would recommend anyone to get a copy, but in the meantime let a bit of scroatiness into your life. :D
     
  4. And there was me thinking this was going to be a recipe involving Legs' unwanted two veg! 8O ;)

  5. Is that "Countryman's cooking" by WMW Fowler (former RAF bomber pilot)?

    If so, I have some MP3 files recorded from BBC R4, of Leslie Phillips reading from same, on Book of the Week recently.

    I will upload them for download, should there be any interest.

  8. Stonker,
    I realise this post is ridiculously old now however I'm desperately searching for this series with no prevail thus far.
    A huge long shot I know, do you still have those mp3 files?
     
  9. Flash MacTavish,
    Does that link point to the mp3 files for the Countrymans cooking series? All I found was Old Scrote's text based recipe's.
