Seeing how successful the wine and beer thread has been, started by my old pal RR1972, I wondered if there was an appetite ( boy I'm good) for a food & cooking thread. I personally have learnt a great deal from the wine thread and as a very enthusiastic amateur cook I am all for sharing good & bad culinary experiences if fellow posters think its a good idea. 

Thoughts please.

OK, I'm no chef, but try this one for a moreish snack.
French stick sliced across in 1.5" pieces, lightly toast in toaster.  Pre-heat your oven grill to about 180C.
Take some brie and cut into slices and cover each disc of bread, spread chilli jam on the top and place under the grill.  The chiili sauce melts down through the brie and brie melts into the bread.  Keep an eye on the grill to prevent burning.

My mouth's watering now! Thumbs Up

One of ours is home cooked gammon ham, eggs & chips. We have a webber smoker & the slow cooked 5-6 kg whole ham is mouth watering cooked over apple wood.

Great idea GPR. Lots of chances to spread info. Maybe even extend to places to eat?

Perhaps Lofty will learn to love the french through this and the wine thread 😉

Excellent idea this ,it really is.
I have been on the wine thread just to read,, and marvelled at the knowledge some people have on the forum.
i would like to learn more about wine .
I enjoy real ale , merlot and single malt, BUT cannot drink at home because of my wife's 
condition. She doesn't drink now , so I can, only on my forays to PARC etc. Nevertheless i am open to any tutorial

Regarding food, I do all the cooking and would love to hear of others ideas. I particularly love fish
casseroles(slow cooker),cawl, spag bog, but fav is Sunday lunch.
Simple stuff. And therefore I am keen to widen my repertoire.

Also would be great to find out others experiences eating out in west wales.
We have a great pub down the road (in Llanelli) Half Moon, that does excellent Sunday lunch, and Stradey arms, is good for basic pub fayre, decent quality.
A bit of a notch up is the Fountain in Pontardullais.

Fine dining (only for special occasions), Slice in Skettty  is good. Small, but great quality, obviously on expensive side.

Looking forward to this thread, thanks GPR

Thanks Pimp & others for feedback. Slice is a very good eatery Pimp - my daughter took us there a few years ago for our anniversary. I do 70% of the cooking at home & really enjoy it. We are having roast rib of beef today with roasties etc usual Sunday roast for us. My wife makes a great yorkshire pudding to accompany. I am going to open a nice little Chianti to set me up to watch the wonderful French players perform.

RR1972 impressed with the wellington effort - keep it up my friend. Thumbs Up

Seconded!

Nice wine link to the match hosts.

Have you ever tried James Martin’s Yorkshire Pudding recipe? If you want plenty of rise in your pud, you’ll love it. He uses sparkling water in the process. Mrs EO swears by it.

Not sure if true yorkies still serve the pud as a starter accompanied just by gravy.

I've got in to this in recent years...as have the other men of the family funnily enough (Alex and Scott).
My wife is just an amazing cook, huge repertoire, and even more so since she stopped working a few years ago, so my chances in the kitchen are not as much as I'd like, but I can't argue with the outcome is fab.

I could regale you with stories of some amazing food from living in the Far East, Asia, North and East Africa over the last 30 years, but the reality is most of those recipes, ingredients and techniques can't be replicated in your next stop or in the UK really.

However I think it's fair to say that as family here we are an absolute mash up of meal preferences (I think the modern word is fusion!)

Ask my teenagers their Top 5 foods and they would say...

-String hoppers with milk rice ( Sri Lanka)

-Nyama Choma - a sort of mixed ribs/grilled meat (Kenya)

-Gratin de crevettes - cheesy prawns! (Morocco)

-Tamil black pepper chicken curry (Tamil Southern India/Northern Sri Lanka)

-Subway Italian melt on French bread (Haverfordwest)--I'm serious...they've never seen a place where you can make up your very own sandwich with anything you want, and with any sauce you want).

For me, my go to food is now fish based...love it.

I'm going to Watamu on the Kenya coast next weekend...quiet, beautiful place...a guy will rock up in the morning and ask us what fish we'd like...we'd tell him, and his crew would go out an catch it...bring it in the evening and off you go.

I don't really go for the fish steak type ( barracuda, swordfish sailfish, tuna etc) but the smaller Red Snapper, King fish, and prawns, calamari etc).

Watamu, and the nearby town of Malindi, have been popular destinations for Italians for many decades, some have stayed and set up some truly amazing restaurants with great vistas and menus too...Papa Remo is a favorite stop.

Menu to search and try ..

Mango Snapper...


Great thread--thanks for starting!

PS--I do love and read the wine and beer thread by the way, but I have absolutely zip to add to it...I have been drinking 'local' for the last 30 years...none of which I'd recommend. Basically, formaldehyde in beer and plop in wine...if you want the best of that world then do let me know!

Like the sound of that Mango Snapper.

Your family have had a great grounding in trying new things as they go about the world. It’ll serve them well in the future.
