I watch Saturday morning kitchen every now and then and they have this feature where a celebrity guest picks their food heaven and hell, their favourite and least favourite food, so I thought I’d ask here...


Heaven:- Salmon, love everything about it, just delicious!!


Hell:- Sweetcorn, the fact that it re-emerges undigested tells me we just shouldn’t be eating it, and it tastes like shite as well!

    Hell: KFC - there's a reason it comes in a bucket. I'd say Pizza Hut is mildly less offensive than McSh1ts and KFC; not that I've had any of these for many years (I've gone hungry rather than eat a McDonalds). I could never understand why people paid for extra toppings at Pizza hut - none of the toppings have any flavour at all; you're just adding another layer of plastic.

    Also, don't like Pizza restaurants where there are no anchovies available. (Hello MF!).

    Heaven includes grilled mackerel, avocados in vinegar/olive oil dressing (and mozzarella and tomatoes in the same) plus grilled lamb, chicken on the bone. Never get the point of chicken breasts - dullest meat ever.

    Doughnuts please unless you are making specific reference to some hideous American version of the things. I once had a cinnamon doughnut at a classic car show in Malvern. It was fabulous. Later I went back for another and they'd sold out. I've never found one since.

    Please be more specific re bacon; it matters. Eg smoked or unsmoked? Dry cure? Rind on? (Why is it that supermarkets think that rindless bacon is something to be proud of? It isn't It's just food that someone has gone to extra trouble to make worse).

    Unsmoked bacon is just ham.

    Also what about streaky Vs back?

    Why is anyone buying bacon from the supermarket? It's rubbish. It should be smoked back bacon with rind from your local butcher.

    I can't decide on my heaven but my hell is definitely the supposed athletes friend the banana. The smell alone makes me want to retch and I wouldn't even want to consider the texture. If anyone begins to peel one I have to move away quickly, hideous things imo.
  • shirley_bassoshirley_basso Posts: 3,684
    But it's not. Even waitrose essentials smoked streaky bacon is absolutely amazing. I once paid a fortune for some super duper butcher bacon and it was disgusting. Keep it simple. Thick cut butcher back bacon is often too tough to bike through and while I LOVE the rind, it's no good for sandwiches as you can cut through it with your teeth.

    Quite.....

    So you probably wouldn't like the one in my office cupboard that has been there for a week and now has a black skin and no doubt soggy flesh and which I will eat this afternoon?

    The point is that you cut the rind off if you don't want it! Supermarkets don't give you that choice. And "I once paid a fortune" isn't really a fair assessment of the entire local butcher bacon business! The nice thing about the local butcher is that they cut the bacon how you want it (nice and thick); I don't even have to ask.

    It's in the financial interest of supermarkets to sell rindless bacon as by removing the skin and selling it separately for crackling they get two products out of one.

    Thin, smoked, streaky. Nice and fatty but no rind.

    Surely the above could be applied to a butcher too? They are commercial enterprises as well.

    I'll admit butchers are not perfect, there have been some where I had sausages from that I didn't really care for, The Black Farmer range in the supermarket were much better.
