I also like the films of Morecambe and Wise especially one in South America with toy soldiers so very funny...

I also understand that in the 60s and 70s you could still buy real food in this country... now the blood sausage is crap you can't find pigs feet, tripe or a sheep head anywhere,,, If it wasn't for my sister sending me real sausage from the village I would stave...   The tomatoes have no taste... I have promised myself next year I will fly cheaply to Italy one or twice a month buys shoes and real food...

What an achievement by the pensioner.

 

He celebrates the 100th anniversary of Harry Brearley discovering stainless steel - a discovery which went on to revolutionise the cutlery industry.

And how does he celebrate it - by sticking a piece of kitchenware up his privates.

If he needed a STIFFY  that badly why didn't he stick to Viagra??. The thought of  what he must have gone through makes my eyes water :eek:  :eek:

Oh MY God..............  When I worked in a boarding kennels, we used to boil sheeps heads for the dogs dinners.  The smell was so bad it made me heave...  When the heads went in I went out :(

Errr you still can buy real food here Inna, we have no more convenience food than anywhere else if the polish shops are a good source of information. You just need to find a real butchers shop. For the sheeps head you need to speak to your local halal butchers. Tripe you can get in any decent butchers shop. Its a common food to eat up  north so if you are ever there grab some if you cant find it down here. You could get tripe from your halal butchers also but its not going to be nice looking white like the british butchers, its going to simply be raw stomach that  you will have to take home and likely blanch yourself for a while. Still tripe though x

 

My favourite food as a child was tripe cooked in milk and butter, proper northern food..mmmmmm

 

regarding the tomatoes, buy on the vine, they have more taste or just go to an old fashioned fruit n veg shop or a farmers market

 

Sorry Inna but that post is a little insulting. Dont tell me the European supermarkets are not packed to the rafters with convenience and mass produced food, they are, I have seen it myself, also  liddle is european in origin and its the cheap shop here.

Chloe: Please don't take Inna's post so seriously, and not just this one.  Being Russian like Inna (almost ;-), I can relate to her posting style.

 

I am sure she get the supplies of mutton heads, (with an eyes intact) pigs trotters, tripe, etc  with a single click on her fingers. She would not do fuck all with it though. Cant imagine Inna get her hand stuck in various offal and offcuts.  She might pass it to Rani though to cook it for her though ;-).   She also probably grows her own sweet tomatoes on the tiny balcony of her apartment.

 

Granted: she after go to Italy to source her high heel stilettos made from the best quality nappa leather.

Try shopping in your local Chinese food supermarket, most are available there, albeit frozen.

For tasty tomatoes try those sold "on the vine."

Just because tomatoes on the vine, it does not mean they are going to be flavorsome and sweet. (in fact the more opposite applies). All tomatoes were attached to the vine after all in the first place. Also, "vine tomatoes" can not be confused with "vine ripened" tomatoes. The latter have a more flavor, but not as widely available as the former. (even though some packaging claims so)

 

I must say most British grown tomatoes (apart of the cherry varieties), aint exactly sweet, but in the season some breeds  do have very strong "pomidori"  flavour.  I mostly go for the ones which have a flavour, oppose to the sweetness. (The best of course, which have both). I can recognise what they going to taste like, just looking on them. (Russian upbringing and all that, lol).

 

Tomatoes season is now, though its coming to the end. Out of commercial grown and not imported tomatoes in UK Ferline  probably have the most beautiful combination of flavour and sweetness. Occasionally sold in Morrisons and Waitrose, (if you lucky to get them, as it a not a vast supply, and not the easiest to transport) as well as on the local markets and greengrocers in the season. I managed to get some two weeks ago in my local market.

 

They are still not a match for a Azerbaijan tomatoes, which of course only can be grown.....well in Azerbaijan. No tomatoes in the world are.

Vine ripened tomatoes are only ripened on the vine slightly longer than the others.  They are still green when picked.  It's a bit of a con.  The phrase "sun ripened" gives an image of them being on the vine until they are ripe, then rushed out to the shops.  But that's not the case.  The difference is more around advertising and legal definition that agriculture.

Not sure how we got from fork up the todger to tasty tomatoes but I'm game for anything.  I always looks for cherry tomatoes grown in Morocco - Spain at a pinch - and avoid any grown in the UK or Holland as they're usually grown in poly-tunnels and artificially ripened.

 

But you can source a lot of good food in this country, you just have to look for it and perhaps be prepared to pay a premium price.

 

As for the fork - OUCH!  :eek:
