The Best Things in Life are Fried

On the whole, it has to be our favoured cooking method. Just look at the F&C thread. Who first thought of cooking something in sizzling oil? Give that man a piece of golden brown chicken. Who does not like chips? Anyone? You can fry just about anything and even deep fry a turkey or a Mars bar and it is always desirable food, an everyday treat.
So desirable it has to be deplored and criticized to put us off it - for nutritional reasons, of course. Does nothing to dampen the desire though.


Time for bacon, eggs and chips in a couple of hours. There might be a sprig of parsley on the plate somewhere.

Boxing Day.

Take leftover Christmas pudding.
Compress gently in hand until it is formed into a shape that you find attractive.
Fry gently in clarified* butter.
Serve hot.

*Butter must be clarified and it must be butter, none of those disgusting spreads that don't even approach the deliciousness of the sublimity of the last tango.

Fried artichokes make quite the delicious appetizer. For our dear, departed friend, Con-pilot, sprouts fried in bacon grease are tasty little things.

Stollen (fruit bread) sliced into half inch slices, fried on both sides in butter. Particularly good when covered with a sauce made out of double cream with a bar of white chocolate melted into it and a dash of vanilla essence

How delightfully disgusting

Due for my annual stollen hit within the next month - have made sure the other half has this committed to memory...

If anyone leaves Christmas pudding, as far as I'm concerned it can go in the bin. On top of my portion from the day before. Same with the cake.

Maybe, but not as tasty as beef dripping

Shy Torque - can I have your portion of Christmas pudding please? And your slice of cake? I understand that countries which are always banging on about their cuisines (eg France, Italy etc|) just dont get Christmas pudding and rich fruit cakes. More fool them!

If there was any on mine it would be swept on the floor sharpish!

When we were living in Denmark, we gave a (home-baked) Christmas (fruit) cake to some neighbours.
They treated it as a regular cake (sand cake was popular) and cut themselves generous wedges - which they found somewhat over-facing.

And then there was Marmite - which they spread like jam . . .

Reminds me of my very first Chinese meal.
My 7-years older brother had just started at Uni and he took me into the city for a meal at the newly-opened Chinese restaurant - the first in town at that stage.
Special fried rice was enough to fill me and remain in my taste memory all these years later (along with memories of the location - up stairs in a back-street off the main shopping street).
Their curries were pleasantly 'different' from Indian curries (which I only discovered much later in life) - they were lighter.

Now that restaurant is long gone and the city has a whole long street of Chinatown restaurants and the original entrepreneurs are suppliers of their sauces to the restaurants (and the general public).
