Smalahove and lutefisk.
Angel food and devil's food - in that order.

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

Schweinshaxe, had it in many places whilst based in Germany but found it again on a recent short break in Krakow and it was absolutely delish.

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.

Question for Marmite lovers. Once opened, should the jar be kept in the fridge?

On a menu in Shanghai I once saw ‘Three Smelly Things Ningbo’ no one on the crew was brave enough to order it!

I'm sure I read somewhere that in the event of nuclear Armageddon only the cockroaches, and Marmite would survive!

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.
