So here are a couple of pics I took of some dishes I did while working down south on the Canal du Midi:

Entree: Confit duck salad with grilled asparagus, hazelnut-roasted beetroot & baby watercress


Entree: Home-cured salmon gravlax on pickled cucumber with peach-white balsamic syrup, creme fraiche foam & smoked salmon roe


Entree: Goats cheese filo parcel on roasted fig & grape salad with walnut pesto & balsamic reduction


Mains: Prosciutto-wrapped pork filet on wild mushrooms and wilted cress


Dessert: Orange & vanilla Panna Cotta with port-poached figs & fresh raspberries


The pics were taken on my phone, so excuse the quality...

Why is high-end food built like a little tower the past several years? You hit it with a fork and everything explodes.

That food looks excellent, but like dustin I am not sure where to start eating on those. Could you fly me out so I could take some lessons?

The English would probably batter and deep fry it...
I've only heard of two English dishes that being fish and chips and bangers and beans. They both look and sound like when the cook was preparing them he threw his hands in the air and said 'F this I don't give a damn any more'.

Not to mmmmake fffffun of yyyyyyour sssssssstutter there stinky, but I don't know... Food fashions come and go eh?

I feel the whole idea is to smash it up with your fork until it resembles normal food, then shovel it in...

And as for Fish & Chips, damn they be good. But then the Poms get it into their heads to smother it all with mashed peas (???) and gravy. Weirdos.

Case in point:

This is how we eat them in NZ:

It is food you buy down at the beach wrapped up in a newspaper parcel. Damn good.

...and here is what the poms do to it:
