Best Really Provincial Foods
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.

M.Mouse 6th Dec 2017 10:57

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.

Ham and pease pudding on a stottie.

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 ! ;-)

Glad to be of assistance.
Planning for lutefisk this weekend. With Yule Tide beer and Akevitt, of course. And plenty of both.

To Per
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

broadreach 6th Dec 2017 20:45

Ceviche or Cebiche, spelled both ways. Preferably Peruvian rather than Chilean.

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.

ShyTorque 6th Dec 2017 21:00

Mackerel, lettuce and Marmite sandwiches. :}

Cazalet33 6th Dec 2017 21:15

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.

Seldomfitforpurpose 6th Dec 2017 21:24

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?

Kinilaw Tanguini - only good dish to come out of the Philippines.

vctenderness 7th Dec 2017 09:14

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

paulc 7th Dec 2017 11:09

VC10tenderness - ditto apart from it was in Guangzhou and the dish was called "god with lemon"

vctenderness 7th Dec 2017 11:12

.....and I have always considered a large Bombay and tonic as ‘God with lemon’.

Yes, someone else's fridge.

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

CargoMatatu 7th Dec 2017 14:04

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

G-CPTN 7th Dec 2017 14:09

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.
