Crabcakes are immensely overrated but can be very nice if made by an expert.

Actually I'd say the same of all the things on your list Seth.

Some real rippers there Ian.

Sushi yes but it has to be high-quality. But yes. Have you tried ume-shiso, the sour plum sauce? You put it in a roll. I'm a devotee of barbecued eel too. And yellowtail.

Roast pork with crackling. Yes.

Stuffing. YES. The source of some discord in my marriage.

Scones, I haven't had one since I left blighty. Just butter for me. Divine.

Bacon butty YES. HP sauce - sorry. I want to like it though. Ketchup for me.

Ripe tomatoes can be incomparable. With a good cheese.

Rarebit, yes, but exceptionally hard to perfect.

  • Cashew
  • Banana
  • Mango
  • Berries
  • Lamb
  • Feta
  • Lasagna
  • Grilled chicken
  • Tuna
  • Shrimp

These are some of my top favorite foods. Lots of nutrients and health benefits in these savory items.

That's an interesting list, WT. Very healthy, as you say, and a good mix of flavours. I'd want a vegetable or two in there, maybe in place of the bananas or the chicken. Appropriate that lamb and feta rub shoulders: few better pairings in life. Cashews (sounds just like a sneeze) are a fine nut but my favourite nut is the walnut.

What kind of berries float your boat?

There's always a salad dish with the grilled chicken; or, red cabbage, red onions and lettuce with a tuna sandwich; or, you can add whatever vegetables you like to this.

I also love the brain-resembling walnuts, which actually do boost brain health. Another thing I enjoy is adding some fried (peeled and shredded) almonds, peanuts and/or cashews - with a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley - to rice dishes.

I'm a fan of all berries. I mostly buy strawberries since they are the cheapest.

Salivating over steak tartare tonight with a raw egg, something bready and crispy and a red blend.

Crickey, you're posh.

The other night I invented the sausage roll sandwich:
2 doorstep slices of white bread
hot sausage rolls to fill
deli style coleslaw
tomato ketchup
strong mustard
wisteria

While I can't endorse the nutrition of that, it does feel like a kind of twisted genius :-)

I'm very fond of the classic fish-finger sandwich, either trad with ketchup, or "gourmet" with tartar sauce...

You bet.

Take out the bread and coleslaw and come back to me.

Fish-finger sandwiches are amazing. And very hard to fuck up.
