Got a heavy duty meat grinder for the kitchen aid off the missus for me birthday. Gonnna be knocking out some smart lines in the next couple of weeks.

anyone done their own sausages?

first carry on gif gets negged.

Try to get real casings - thin are lamb, thick pig. Try asking a decent butcher. The synthetic (collagen) ones are pricks to use. Lots of stuff on YouTube these days. Pork or lamb shoulder is cheap to use, don't skimp on the fat content. Salami is OK at this time of year in Aus, needs to hang in a cool dry atmosphere.

I had Beef Wellington for the first time ever yesterday. Fuck me... it was absolutely next level. Never really appealed to me because on paper medium rare beef wrapped inside pastry, just doesn’t seem right. Boy was I wrong on every level.

 

Venue: The Hemingway, Hackney

Price: £39 for 2, so I paid £19.50

Verdict: Incredible

Went to the best restaurant in the UK last Tuesday, Endo at the Rotunda.

 

£250 a head and I would have happily paid double!

 

So fucking good!

You’ll be on a list now.

Just returned from the states and can confirm that the Red Lobster is absolutely fucking shit. Overpriced yet massive and mediocre portions of seafood fare that look and sound way better on the menu than in reality. You get better and cheaper fare at buffet joints like Sweet Tomatoes and Golden Corral.

That view from the hotel was nice though.

Anyone onto one of these air fryers?

 

Got for my birthday and as sad as it sounds, it works really well and is a hell of a lot easier than doing the oil thing.

My sister got one and was raving about it. I went round her house and she cooked me some frozen french fries in it. They were shit but it would be harsh to blame the air fryer.

Have you tried falafels yet?  If it does a decent job of them I might get one.

Just had a wrap with slow cooked lime and paprika pulled beef brisket, pickled red onion, pineapple and avocado salsa, rice, lime yoghurt and hot sauce.

 

My tastebuds are currently doing things to one another on a sex trapeze which would make onlookers cry.

    • Well spotted. Klopp is so good he doesn't need other people to talk on his behalf.
    • I particularly liked ‘Jurgen said ‘when I first met Klopp’ !!! Amazing!
    • The hardest people to please are the people who pay their hard earned money every week to support their team?   Just the way it should be.
    • Former CEO Ian Ayre has identified some of the outstanding qualities that saw Jürgen Klopp become Liverpool manager.

      Ayre who held the position at the club between 2014-17 said there was an instant connection between Klopp and the big decision makers at the club.

      ESPN reported Klopp as saying:

      “I'm a big believer that when you run a football club that first impressions are everything.

      "And the first time I met Jurgen... I can honestly say within 15 minutes I thought this guy is perfect.

      Ayre said that it was clear that Klopp understood what makes the club special and gave him a lofty accolade.

      “It was one of the times that you know that your team, your city, your club and, with all the greatest respect to all the managers that came before him, I think Jurgen is almost like this prophet type level of manager and he is absolutely perfect for that club."

      From the early days of the Klopp tenure, the German has been extremely big on bringing a real sense of energy and enthusiasm to his role of manager.   And he certainly does practice what he preaches to his players.

      There is no sense of letting the game drift along, animated discussions with the fourth official are a common sight, as is making sure the Anfield crowd are constantly energised in the contest.   And the celebrations after a win are a symbol of true team spirit.

      Ayre says that those emotions is Klopp in a nutshell.

      “Everything you see from him, going on the field and hugging everybody [after matches] and that whole thing, it's very natural.

      “He doesn't do it for effect, he doesn't do it to make himself seem like a nicer person, it's just real and I just connected with him immediately."

                     In contrast, Ayre he was a figure who rankled with the fanbase in his time at the club.   Since leaving Liverpool nearly three years ago, the 56 year-old has spent time at 1860 Munich and is currently CEO of Nashville in the MLS who are gearing up for their first season in the competition.

      He talked about some of the challenges associated with setting up a new franchise.

      “Having patience is the hardest piece and that's why I think you have to be aligned as a group.

      “The owners, the coach, the management, the players, everybody has to be aligned with the plan and you have to stick together.

      "The hardest people to bring along on that journey is the fans. 

      “Everyone wants instant success, but if you keep aligned as people and you can look at all the people in the room and say 'we're on the same path,' then I think you can achieve great things.”
