Wasnt anything Special really we had a dish on for Asparagus it was literally 6 sticks of asparagus on a plate wit some expensive olive oil (J l Blanc) and some expensive Balsamic, I work on starters and was Embarrased to be sending it out, So i told the Chef i wasnt happy sending it out and thought it was poor, So he said you fo better so i prepped a load of Asparagus, Put all the wood and peelings into a pan of water boiled the arse out of it seasoned and Blitz the idea was to use it in a homemade mayo whic i wasnt allowed so i poored into some ready made mayo but the flavour from mayo was so sharp to taste the exparagus, I tried adding a bit more salt but did nothing so i poured it in till i could taste it this became a sauce lookily i split it into two, Because in one i tried to thicken it by whisking some cream into it problem being i also wanted to keep it a nice green, so i got the electric whisk and turned it on to thincken it but my bowl was to big and it over whicked in parts and looked like Scrambel egg taste bloody lovely though but i couldnt bring myself to serve that. so i didnt touch the other half because it already tasted bloody lovely. So then i blanched some Asparagus then wrapped in Parma Ham so it became , Poached Egg in a bowl of Warm Asparagus and mayo Sauce and Grilled Parma ham wrapped Aspargus, Now this is a place with no acolades its a place where i can get a background a stepping stone as to say, And it was being inspected by AA They ordered My Starter a Fish and Chips and a Chilli Pestacio and white Chocolate Browny the coment card read Starters Wonderful starter good enough for any restaurant , Fish and Chips Fish was bland and The desert nice but browny could of been hotter not the exact words but along the lines of that. I woke up to days ago to the Chef can you come in early today as we are in the shit i said yeah not a problem hes walking away then says oh and by the way we had AA inspecters here last night i was like oh really shit what was the problem he said nothing we got an award, they had your starter and loved it congratulation and he shook my hand and said see you at 12.

Champ did herself proud with the soda bread.

 

She said she's now taking orders.

 

I don't take orders......you have to be chosen!

 

On second thoughts everyone has their price....

Fuck you're making me hungry, all I've got in is a tin of toms and pasta.

 

I also had the best tuna I've ever had while we were away. I'd never been that impressed with it before but it was recommended and rightly so

Just found the only take away place to deliver to the sticks...a medium sized meat feast and garlic bread with cheese?

 

£37!

 

Hunger is a cunt and I blame you woman.

 

I reckon your missus knows all about your shortcomings in the shopping department more likely.

 

And FWIW a home delivery meat feast pizza has no place in a Foodie thread

    • Is it always pissing it down in Leicester? Yes. Yes it is. Sheffield and Doncaster have had flooding but it wouldn't surprise me if Leicester has recorded more rainfall over that period.   Your mum's quoted about Tom Davies is brilliant. I reckon he should go the whole hog and grow dreadlocks so he can complete the "drinks wheatgrass juice, eats alfalfa burgers and stinks of weed" look. Like that Ethan Ampadu jabroni at Chelsea.   Speaking of shit haircuts, what about Declan Rice and his Lloyd Christmas do?   I made the argument recently for a player's standing foot being the decisive indicator for VAR offside calls. It's a far better suggestion than trying to identify whose toenail is furthest forward or whose left pube is sticking out more. Mind you, the VAR officials still need to understand what a vertical line actually is.

    • This week’s round up will be like the semi-final stages of the Champions League - a Man City free-zone. We played them on Sunday so that was covered in the match report. All the fall out from it - and there's a lot - will be in “the week that was” due to be posted up at the weekend, so this will cover all the other games.   May as well kick things off with the two sides who are now the closest of the chasing pack. First up, Chelsea beat Palace in the early game to temporarily go second.   Kevin Abraham broke the deadlock in the second half with a composed finish and Pulisic wrapped it up late on to give Chelsea six league wins on the spin. They haven’t played anyone decent in those six games, but you still have to win and they have.   Pulisic is looking really good now and Lampard has introduced another youngster into the side, Reece James, who  was terrific and completely shut down Wilf Zaha. He probably shouldn’t be allowed to play again until he’s been the barbers though. Dreadful state of affairs that. It looks like a tarantula orgy.     James’ hairstyle apart, Chelsea are looking good and next up they’ve got a certain side who I’m not talking about, which could be a cracker of a game. Defensively they’re suspect but they’re great going forward and their style is attractive to watch. If they get it right tactically and that’s going to be interesting.   Palace were shite, because Palace are shite. Been saying it all season, but it’s only a matter of time until they’re in the bottom six.   Chelsea’s stint in second spot was short lived as Leicester rolled over Arsenal to leapfrog them. Arsenal losing again was no surprise though. It was away and they travel about as well as BA Baracus, plus Leicester are much better than them. Throw in the fact they were up against Jamie Vardy, a man who has embarrassed the Gunners in recent years almost as frequently as Arsenal Fan TV, and there was nothing down for them really.   Leicester smacked them around and it was far easier than the 2-0 score suggested. Arsenal only had one shot I think. They were pitiful. They were lucky not to concede an early pen when Guendouzi grabbed Soyuncu by the shoulder as he attacked a set-piece. VAR didn’t over-rule the ref on that, which again just makes you wonder what’s going on. It’s 100% a penalty and it deserved to be punished for sheer stupidity alone. How are they not giving that?   Maybe they were influence by the likelihood that Soyuncu wasn’t even going to reach the ball, but that makes what Guendouzi did even worse. How thick do you need to be to do that? That incident was Arsenal in a fucking nutshell though. They do shit like this every week. If it’s not Xhaka it’s David Luiz. If it’s not David Luiz it’s Guendouzi. Next week it will be Torreira or Bellerin or Kolasinic or Mustafi. They must have the thickest squad of players in the league. Absolutely no discipline whatsoever.     This is just a teaser, click here to view the full article   Please note that PL Round Ups are only available to website subscribers.

    • The game is in Riyadh. That bench will already be warm!
    • I can recall being proud of our players being selected. Those days are long gone. 
      . Partly political as I don’t want any association with Brexit flag waving Xenophobes and partly because the players are exploited as fund raisers for the FA and regularly injured in the process   would support a Great Britain team but brand “ Ingurland” is poisonous
