Watch This: "Fish! A Japanese Obsession"

Check out this interesting documentary all about Japan and it's preoccupation/love for fish.  Lots of insights into Japanese culture and elements of it that we don't get to see much.

Watch out for  the gang of maniacal fishmongers who turn into a rock band by night and play  nothing but songs about Tuna, using song to educate the public about the benefits of fresh fish over processed convenience foods.  Oh, Japan!  We love you...

I think I now have about 15 pending posts to put up, I keep eating and cooking like mad and the posts keep piling up, waiting to be released into the world. 

Will I ever get around to putting them up?  Who knows...

Pickled Peppers

Decided to pickle some peppers today...

Roast, grill or griddle them till charred. Let them cool, place into a jar with large pinch of salt, garlic clove, some mustard seeds, oregano and vinegar.  I used regular white vinegar with a bit of White Wine Vinegar thrown in, also decided to add some parsley for no apparent reason.

I shall pickle for 2 weeks.

More belated posts coming soon...

Chilli site!!

More wise words from Kebab Guru Mehmet Hussein:
I just met a geaser in the toilet in the Services off the M4- junction
11. Unbelivable!! He had worse guts than me! Like me, he's addicted
to Chilli and as a result, spends an average of one and a half hours a
day straddling his turd throne. My daily average is 50 mins. The
things we do for flavor!
He told me about this site for like minded chilli lovers!

Known as the 'Doner Don' throughout the food world- he is regarded as the inventor of household classics such as: 'Pitta bread and chips' and The Special- (Doner meat with chips in pitta).

Guest Reviewer- Mehmet Hussein-Nicky’s Café and Sandwich Bar AKA ‘Phelpsy’s’- 8 WELL STREET LONDON E9 7PX

My Nephew- Youssef has got a Garage over the road from Nicky's Café
and he's been banging on about this place for ages. They all call it
'Phelpsy's' because Olympic swimming legend Michael Phelps- who
munches down 12,000-calories every day- wouldn't be able to cope with
the immense portions of this establishment. I had a bit of time to
kill while the boy replaced the Carburettor on my 'Autumn- beige' S-
Class, 1987, Mercedes Benz so I went over to test my belly.
I'd been recommended the homemade Chicken Escalopes on a crusty roll
with Cheese, Salad, Mayo and Chilli sauce. I'd also been warned to
keep an eye on them when they were applying the mayo because they have
a habit of 'Phelpsing it up too hard!' They weren't wrong! The bird
slapped on 2 fat table- spoons of mayo. The Missus has told me that my
expanding waistline is affecting her sexual arousal so I asked them to
scrape a bit of Mayo off. They did.
I sat down and they brought me a perfectly coloured cup of tea to go
with my sarnies. I tucked in. What can I say! A true blinder! The
escalope had just been fried so was still warm and crunchy. The crusty
roll had just the right level of resistance. And all for £2.80!!
That's a Credit Crunch Munch!
While I was eating I had a bit banter with Moustafa the owner. He's a
Chelsea fan like my best mate Effendi. I told him my Chelsea joke-
"What's the similarity between Kathy from Eastenders and Roman
Abramovich? - They both fucked Phil and Grant!" He laughed. I told him
he could have that one.

Word of warning. One of the ladies who work in there- the slightly
slimmer of the two- wears a particularly strong perfume. Youssef has
told me that from time to time his sandwiches taste a bit like her.
Some of you might find that disgusting, me- I'm a fan of a well-
scented lady!
