Pork Fat Therapy/ What are you eating?


#5094

I enjoyed eating there with a friend. That kind of food is full of slightly unusual tastes and textures and it’s nice to have a lunch out where you don’t overdo the calories. You feel all virtuous as you emerge. Which probably explains why everyone hates vegans!

Made this to go with a South Indian style chana dal dish- very nice :+1:

I upped the green chillies and just used desiccated coconut rehydrated with boiling water


#5097

is that The Green Kitchen?


#5098

More like The Green Bogs, I’d have thought.


#5099

Anyway, Short rib n veg!

That’s probably closer to you than me!

I’m talking about NoMooMoo, by the Abbey


#5101

Y’see, even the name of the fucking place is defensive. Why can’t they be a vegan restaurant plain and simple, without the politics?


#5102

My favourite name is Veggie Perrins in Plymouth


#5103

It’s not run by vegans. Just people cashing in on the trend.


#5104

:frowning: Not doing veganism much good really…


#5105

Few people under 40 will have a clue. :grinning:


#5106

This is true as a rule and not just about Reggie Perrin. It gets worse for the older age profiles though…:confounded:


#5107

Mmmmm, that looks incredibly satisfying.


#5108

Nice to get back to proper food after all that festive wank


#5109

One is whole grain, new recipe ?


#5110

It was good. I have been getting into star anise with meat and stuck a couple in the braising liquor. Really adds depth and body without making it taste Asian. :+1:


#5111

best way for short ribs IMO - soy, beef stock, Shaoxing wine (or dry sherry), 5 spice, ginger garlic, spring onions and star anise.

Fussy client

I find that star anise is the best illustration of the “less is more” mantra. As soon as you can taste it, you’ve added too much!
