January 20th, 2011 · No Comments

Vegetarian(ish) French(ish) Onion Soup Around our way virtually every shop sells these 4kg sacks of onions for a very reasonable £2, so we thought we’d buy one and see if we could eat the entire contents in sufficiently varied ways that we didn’t slump into an Allium ennui induced coma. This onion soup is […]

Minty Pea Fritters with Smoked Salmon

January 17th, 2011 · No Comments

I couldn’t think of an introduction to this recipe so I ran it back and forth through BabelFish a few times until I ended up with ‘Muntachtige pea fries in oil the pie of meat [s] in order to fumigate the salmon of the friend’.

January 17th, 2011 · No Comments

Cocktail: Swimming Pool

January 13th, 2011 · No Comments

Three or four years ago (I’m sure my co-blogger can tell you the exact date *) we went on a mini train tour of East Germany which took us from Dresden to Berlin via Leipzig. If there had been a soundtrack** to this journey, it would have been the final slurps of a draining cocktail […]
