I think you mean well done rather than well cooked......

However, I went for a meal whilst visiting my sister and they had a carvery (we didn't eat from it). The beef had that lovely grey-brown colour :sick: and the Pork looked strangely moist yet dry at the same time :wtf: However, at least 3 people sent their meat back because it wasn't cooked eough!

Someone else complained that the vegetables were undercooked - I don't think they'd ever seen green peas before....

kev has my sympathy.

Oh, I had a steak sandwich - rare. :thumbup:

Too F'in much!

The food police insist that meat must be cooked through - otherwise they'd have to do something about the bacteria in it due to "streamlined" rearing processes.

Odd that most animals don't cook their meat at all, yet seem to get away with it. (OK, OK, only carnivores, allegedly, but my Rabbit watched every mouthful when I had a steak!)

Talking of burnt, Kev, do you remember when you burnt to top of a dish in the oven and rather than waste it you or your Mum would scrape off the burnt bit and served the edible bit?

Now the scrapings are carefully collected and used to coat another dish. Not had any of this "burnt" food stuff but they serve it at refurbished (many would say ruined) "The Swan Hotel" in Southwold where apparently they want a Michelin star. And it was in a recipe in the EDP weekend magazine the other week. Apparently you have to take a leek apart and grill the pieces until burnt black and then you pulverised the pieces and use this burnt leek crumbs to cover the dish that was the main reason for the recipe (sorry forgotten what the rest of it was). What a waste of a good leek.

Isn't that what the US wants to do to Julian Assange?

I thought he was happy here but scared to go to Sweden to face prosection there in an alleged sexual assault case as he would then be sent to the USA.

Another Smores vid on roast chicken. Bought back memories but not sure how today's home cooks would react.

The bird was plucked but otherwise whole, just like the ones at home after one of my parents had plucked the bird my Dad had just killed.

This is an extract from the recipe: Clean the chicken and save the giblets, neck, and feet for soup stock. I guess they expect you to know what to do with the head.

Yep, the bird on show had head, neck and feet attached and presumably you have to draw the chicken (remove the inside bits) as it talks about the giblets.

How many people today would know how to draw a chicken or have the guts to do so. (Sorry could not resist that pun).

Must admit this squeamish child was never in the kitchen when any of this took place. :lol:

You take an Oreo biscuit and wrap in up in bacon, use toothpicks to hold in place and then deep fry.

Apparently will leave your taste buds begging for more.

Not my taste buds as my mouth would refuse to let it in in the first place :lol:
