So, as a budding old fart, I am developing an appreciation for really good food from obscure origins.

I'd like to start the list with Chislick, that is, South Dakota grass fed beef chunks, seasoned, and deep fried in butter.

leeds Bradford tripe baguette.

Fecking horrible if you are not a local. Knicker dropping treat if your CC is a local and you let her get one. "Eee fancy ya cock sucked pet if't I can'st get a tripe lunch from murgatroids"

Yar alright love I will tell the taxi driver.

Are you sure captain its really no bother.

I didn't want to ask if she was talking about sucking my cock or missing out on the tripe baguette I made it a priority to get the tripe lunch and keep my zip up

Fresh bread from the bakery, take the crust and smear it with butter and Vegemite. Oz traditional snack.

I love Marmite. When I first went to Oz in the early 90s I bought some Vegemite thinking it would be similar! Couldn't abide it.

A real Yorkshire Pudding - delicious ! According to my Lancastrian pal, apart from the East Coast mainline trains, it's the only good thing to come out of Yorkshire & it's the only foreign food he'll eat ! ;-)

The Rhyme of The Ancient Mariner, Part Deux:



A true story concerning visual impairment and foreign adult beverages: Long ago and far away (when I was a much younger man), I lived on St. Simons Island, Georgia, U.S.A. I had a dear friend named Nestor Jarvis, a Norwegian by heritage. Ness owned a bar called Murphy's Tavern (pretending to be bog-hopping Oirsh) and was fond of every whiskey known to modern man. Especially the terrible tasting but extraordinarily potent Akevitt (water of life), which I believe is made from chicken lips, pig anuses, and politicians' hearts. But I digress...


One hot and humid summer afternoon, Ness had consumed the better part of a fifth of Akevitt. He was wavering between semi-consciousness and a delta stage coma. Fortunately he lived but a one minute drive away from the tavern and was able to navigate his zig-zag way to his humble bachelor quarters. There he fell, fully clothed, onto his unmade rumpled bed. (You should know at this point that coastal Jawja receives daily onslaughts of magnificent, towering thunderstorms each and every afternoon in the summertime. This day was no exception, and, as usual, the power to the whole island was knocked out for three or four hours.)



Ness awakened along about 9:30 P.M. He was immersed in total permeating darkness, for though he remained unaware of the fact, the capable linesmen of Georgia Power were still working to restore power/drink their asses off/wolf whistle at pretty ladies.


With throbbing head and alcohol-induced diplopia, Ness reached for the lamp located upon his bedside table and, with Herculean effort, twisted the knob to ON. Nothing. He tried again. (It was one a them 'ere 3-way laght doohickeys.) Nothing. Ness panicked! In a voice loud enough to be heard over a radius of half of Oceanicus Atlanticus, he screamed forlornly: "OH! MY GOD! I'M BLIND!!!"




Just as I (and half the twelve thousand persons who lived on the island) stopped what we were doing to rush to Herr Jarvis' aid and assistance, the power flickered on. Ness, relieved to learn that he would not require a white cane and a tin cup, was otherwise distressed to learn that his bed was covered in copious vomitus comprised of chicken lips, pig anuses, and politicians' hearts! :eek: :bored: :yuk:

North Staffs oatcakes

Few know the pleasure of these with bacon, sausage and some cheese - though not how they were originally served!

My Grandparents had an oatcake shop in Fenton when my Grandfather demobbed. I still make our own now, but only a couple of times a year as a special treat.

From other areas, after a few drinks, a chicken parmo can beat a doner kebab!

Plus one, and to cavuman1, that would be Akevitt inhaling as per normal.
Shoted and chased. Particularly during the coming Yule Tide. Woohooo.

The smell of lutefisk deserves the aroma of a well rotted durian as accompaniment.

Now there's a man who knows his food.

Recently introduced my brother and his wife to Chiang Mai sausage. Both loved it. Even my sister-in-law who is otherwise a bit gun-shy with spicy foods.

But best when served from a push-cart brazier. Sai ua and nam prik ong.

Ours is not in a glass jar, its in a plastic squeezy container and states on the front of it do not refrigerate.

As Marmite 'thickens' at low temperature (or, more accurately, 'thins' at higher temperature), keeping it in the refrigerator will result in tearing of the bread if used straight from there.

Of course, if you only spread it onto toast, there will be less of a problem.

I cannot believe that we are on page 2 of this thread and no-one has mentioned a CORNISH PASTY.

Always have great difficulty walking up Market Jew St in Penzance without partaking of at least one offering, having to walk past Warren's (2 branches), Rowe's, Pellow's and The Mounts Bay Pasty Co. the choice is just too great to resist.

On balance I do prefer Pellow's.:):):)

"Large Shish" from Shezans, Wilmslow Road, Rusholme.

"Shami Kebab" whilst waiting, (yoghurt and chilli sauce.)

If you are a bit big and daft looking, with big feet, you'll get a "Police Discount" as well.

Just nod, without questioning things too much.

Unless the "TAG" team are all lined up at the counter.

My Bride and I pride ourselves on our homemade chili, a thick and delicious admixture featuring cubes of sirloin steak, smoked chili powder, corn, tomatoes, jalapeno peppers, and eleven other ingredients which I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you! It is a rib-sticking variation of a Texas 5-alarm dish that we don't make quite so hot; my bald head would otherwise erupt with sheets of perspiration.

On the other end of the scale is Cincinnati chili, a delicacy known in and around our town. It is served over spaghetti, hot dogs ("coneys"), or by itself in a bowl. Like our Texas chili, it is best served with a generous serving of shredded cheddar cheese, a big dollop of sour cream, and a few shots of Tabasco. Several of the "secret" ingredients include chocolate, cinnamon, and allspice. It is almost a watery liquid, but is, at once, delicious and addictive. Two local chain restaurants, Skyline (pronounced jokingly as Sk-Leany) and Goldstar, serve millions of gallons each year. If you're ever in "Porkopolis", it is a must-try. Or give us a call and join us for some Texas chili, pardner! (Though my better half has mastered a perfect simulacrum of Skyline's version if you insist.) NOM-NOM-NOM! :} :eek: :ok:

Incredible levels of salt in Marmite (& Vegemite!!!) means that the product does not require refridgeration IF you use a clean utensil.

Vegemite runs 7% Sodium, (FYI Bonox runs 22%!!!!)
(I don't have any marmite, however I am informed that the product sold down under as marmite is quite unlike the UK product, which a chef friend informed me is sold in some supermarkets in Australia as "Our Friend". I found some "Our Friend" and it's a lot sweeter than Vegemite.)

Just stay away from those oh so very Russian tourist traps. Expensive and lousy food. If the guest don't speak mostly Russian or Finnish, turn away.
Based on bitter $$$ experience.
