Cleanse & Tone

December 11th, 2009 · No Comments

I don’t know about you, but I think all this talk of Gordon Ramsay having a facelift is utter nonsense… his lovely new complexion is just down to sympathetic lighting and a good daily skin care regime.

Yumie Magazine – issue 5

December 9th, 2009 · No Comments

Hi guys. The new issue of Yumie Magazine trudges wearily over the well-trod ground of the US of A! We’ve asked around the office, spent the morning on Google and flicked through a 20 year old edition of ‘Floyd’s American Pie’ to cobble together this lazy cliché-ridden feast of Americana. Some of these recipes have […]

MasterChef

December 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Rejoice, MasterChef is back! This time around it’s a mixed bag of ‘Professionals’ who have to cook for Gregg and friends and thankfully the format is little changed. Despite being an irregular at my local gym, Gregg “That’s a twist of a lemon and a chop of a chilli away from perfection, my friend” Wallace […]

Desert Island Discs

October 9th, 2009 · No Comments

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall was the guest on Desert Island Discs this week. Although I never actually listened to the programme subsequent research showed him to have the reasonable (albeit mainstream) musical tastes of a man of a certain age. The Specials – Gangsters. The Who – Love Reign O’er Me. Beethoven – Symphony No.9 in D […]

In Praise of… Gwydwr’s Turnips

September 29th, 2009 · No Comments

A lovely lady called Gwydwr came up to the big smoke and gave us some handsome home grown turnips and a pair of socks each. We ate them thinly sliced and raw in a salad. They were peppery and delicious. The turnips weren’t half bad either. Ha.

L2B 2009

September 15th, 2009 · No Comments

Last weekend Team Yumblog shaved an hour off their personal best and finished the London to Brighton cycle ride in record time. There was to be extensive photographic documentation of this momentous event but the camera battery went flat the night before and the charger was the other side of the river. The packing.

There is a specially designed team t-shirt available here which anyone is welcome to buy should the urge grab them. A full size version of […]

John Hurt’s Salami Face

May 27th, 2009 · 4 Comments

Is it me, or is that John Hurt’s lovely face in a piece of his own salami? It’s either a minor miracle, a vanity project, or the designer working on the ‘What’s in your basket?’ feature in this Sunday’s ‘Observer Food Monthly’ was a bit bored and decided to counterbalance Dr John Briffa’s usual pessimistic […]

Fill the raw cannelloni, as they are in the box without boiling them. (The stuffing must be cold). On the bottom of the empty bakepan strew tomato sauce. The cannelloni, as they are settled in the bakepan on one layer, strew above fluid tomato sauce in order to counterbalance the interior expansion with the outer […]

Music to cook by

April 18th, 2009 · No Comments

Always on the lookout for the opportunity to appear on the fringes of yesterday’s zeitgeist we cooked up a plan to share with you – our faithful – an album choc full of infitessimally predictable and overexposed tunes that you couldn’t possibly have playlisted yourselves. We call it Cook-In – like the sauce you use […]

Creationism

January 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

“I’ve started to drift towards a belief in God, creationism and intelligent design. When I look at something as complete and intricate and detailed as Professor Dawkins I think, ‘Surely that can’t just have happened by chance’.” A quote from the comedy genius Stewart Lee. This and many more designs available from our shop

Yuckblog 8: Drei Deutsche Imbisse

January 11th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Like a dog returning to its vomit, here we are once again preparing three unappetising platefuls of instant pasta for this, our eighth yuckblog taste test. Thus far much of what we have tried has been of such a lamentable quality it can barely be described as ‘food’, so this time we have travelled further […]

Happy New Year

January 5th, 2009 · 1 Comment

This time last year we posted a recipe for ‘Minted Pea & Lettuce Soup‘ with the uplifting introduction “Happy New Year. It’s 2008 and it looks like the year ahead is going to be shit”. Predictions don’t come more accurate than that. So what of 2009? Shitter. Much shitter. Shittier than Shitty Jack McShit after […]

CaterPlate®

November 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Last weekend was spent eating and boozing in Oxford and no trip to The City of Dreaming Spires is complete without a visit to the quaint and slightly anachronistic department store Boswells. If you walk through the luggage section, past the Oxford tourist tat, turn left and go downstairs to the basement, you will happen […]
