winter food

Recommended Posts

Something to eat after the game in the cold dark winter months:

That's not soup!

 

My mum used to make soups that you could serve in slices, horrible; soups need to be minimum 95% liquid.

 

Same as Marco me, my eating habits have changed over the last few years but time of year is irrelevant as it was before. Christmas dinner could be a salad and I could eat beef in red wine with dumplings in July.

 

My wife is anal about this, "you've got to have something hot!". Nah, you need to eat enough calories.

95% liquid?! Insane. You need to be able to stand a spoon up in it to call it a soup or stew.

 

Anyway, over here it's harvest season so there's loads of game around at the moment. Then we'll move on to fondue and raclette which is epic, and I'll be making fake scouse and soups for the next 5 months. I love winter :)

Like Marco and Mike, my eating habits don't change throughout the year, I just eat whatever I fancy.

so do I for the most part, but so much of Swiss food is seasonal you kinda have to adapt

brown sauce is in the bottle ketchup is in the bin

 

Wet scouse is fine if you like it that way (I do by the way) but good stick to your ribs food is more solid and it is bloody tasty too.

 

Eat ehat you like and like what you eat.

 

By the way there used to be a cafe in London road that did amazing scouse, is it still there?

theres no sauce or anything. Looks like scouse that's been through a dehydrator!

I mean what the fuck is the point of the bread with that crap when there's absolutely nothing to soak up?!

 

I was once given scouse on a plate. It was drier than a nuns fanny. I'm sure my face was a picture when the plate was put in front of me. I was sat there thinking "I thought I was having scouse?"

My breakfast...

 

Complan%20Shake%20BANANA.png

 

But never banana flavour (or strawberry) :wacko:. Vanilla or chocolate every time.....and I never know which til I open it, I "blind pick"; makes brekkie time exciting-ish :unsure:.

 

On the bright side I get it on prescription so for me there is such a thing as a free meal :).

Breakfast is a meal I very rarely have, and never when I'm at home. The only time I really eat it is if I'm on holiday.

same here, I never eat breakfast unless we have visitors and I've done a fry up or I'm travelling (helps with jetlag apparently)

Kick starts the metabolism, "most important meal of the day" according to dietitians; get it down yourselves (but no bourbon on the cornflakes Matt, that'd be unhelpful :P).

My best breakfast ever was in the White Lion Hotel in Hebden Bridge. Scrambled egg, bacon, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes, sausage and toast. When they put the plate in front of you everything was still sizzling from the frying pan and grill. At home, I just get a slice of toast - and I have to do it myself. :rolleyes:

Never had the Complan Mike, what is it like?

 

Just got back from my dad's in Liverpool. at least he still has an appetite. Nearly ate my arm when I put his food in front of him :rofl:

 

Oh well I know where I get it from anyway. Of all foods I have tried there is only one I can not eat (as opposed to will not eat) and that is cucumber, if it has even been on the plate I can tell. No idea why but it makes me violently ill. Apart from that just stick it on a plate and I will have a go.

Just a thought, but how many of you like curry? I used to love it in all it's forms but nowadays spices have a bad effect

 

if you mean Thai Curry, then yes i love Red Curry. If you mean the dish you english eat, chicken tikki masala, it's alright but i much prefer Thai curries.

Any curry at all, even curry from the chippy on chips.

Rubes, as far as I'm concerned, for cucumber read garlic. Can't stand it, makes me ill just thinking about it.

Favourite ever, but nothing with coconut in so that rules out anything Thai. Remember the first Indian I went for, thirty-five odd years ago and it was a "road to Damascus" moment. When I lived in London I'd be in my local 3/4 times week! Now we have a brilliant takeaway two miles down the road; it's a rare treat but I still love it. Weird one because although I don't actually taste it properly my brain (and my family) tell me how good it is is so my brain tells me it's great, and also it looks superb so "eating with the eye" comes into it.

Missed this Rubes; it's like a milkshake I guess. I've not drunk milk all my life but I had a choice between it and really thick supplements that were just impossible to swallow so I took the "easier" option. Now I knock back 200mls every morning without a thought,

i think most of the curries you folks in the UK eat are from Pakistan or India since they were former colonies. I don't love Pakistani or Indian cuisine. I do however love Thai, Vietnamese, and other countries int the Far East that make Curry.

On lad who used to work with us had a Thai wife and she made curries for all of the lads on shift. Not bad but a little bland in flavour for me, nevertheless they were pretty good.

Is it filling?

 

It is, that's the whole point of if it. Major selling point is for people trying to lose weight getting calories in without over indulging so they lose it.

 

I have it for the totally opposite reason, keeping weight up when normal eating is difficult (though it's getting easier).

I am wondering if it may be good for me Mike may have a look and see what the doctor says.

Actually the majority of "Indian" restaurants in the UK are Bangladeshi owned, around 75% I think. Have a book somewhere detailing the the history of the onset of curry in the UK by the founder of "The Curry Club" which details the roots. Interesting read.

Thanks Mike, that rings a bell actually.

Nihari is king for me, lamb shank with a watery chilli and garlic curry. Although I'm not big on garlic, it's worth putting up with for a Nihari as the rest of the gravy is amazing.

That sounds awsome, ever tried curried goat?
