View attachment 361215
We went to a restaurant recently where they advertised Barnsley Chop on the menu, decided that was for me. You can imagine the look on my face when the plate turned up with 2 of the smallest lamb cutlets turned up which had also been French trimmed to within an inch of their lives, it was basically an eye of meat on a bone. OH told me not to say a word but we definitely won't be going back again!

I think I'd have ignored the OH and sent the fecker back, FFS, robbing pretentious bastards.
 
Roasted a pork loin joint in my Dutch oven on the coals inside my wood burning stove.

Bushcraft cookery but indoors without any of the outdoors " unpleasantness ".



Put the joint on a trivet.

Clean your stove you dirty bastard.

Take lid off and crisp up the crackling.

Serve on Willow pattern only.

Is the stove in your shed?
 
.......and real bacon!

Bisto is gettable, and I do have a couple stashed away but, it just seem's to have vanished from the shelves of the usual suspects.
I ordered a shitload from Amazon about a month ago, coming from the UK, but it seems to be AWOL. Should have been delivered last week.

Dunno why I can't buy it locally anymore, same as you. Banning grey market imports?
 
There's no fowl in that there "cassoulet", so - lush as it looks, that label's off by a large margin, I'm pretty sure.
Does it have to contain chicken/duck/goose to be a cassoulet? I know traditional ones contain goose/duck or it's fat, but I ask because I've bought cheap ones in French supermarkets which seem to contain only sausage/beans/veg.

British version - not a fan of confit duck!

Krogers is out of the stuff, and has a pretty piss poor Brit selection at the moment. World Market is full of German xmas stuff. The only place I managed to get some is the little British Emporium in Grapevine.
