This doesn’t have quite the effect on me that KFC intended. It doesn’t make me marvel at the company’s honourable commitment to haute cuisine. Mostly, it makes me think they haven’t made a machine for breading chicken breasts yet.

It also makes me ponder just how loosely the Colonel defines the word ‘chef’.

The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food

Utterly fascinating post, full of intriguing (and scary) insights.

Have Pizza Hut gone too far, or just far enough?

The logical endpoint for this sort of thing is an entire pizza stuffed into the crust of a larger pizza, probably as part of a promotional campaign for Inception 2.

This is Not a Cheesesteak: Welsh Cheesesteak?

Michaelangelo from the awesome blog This Is Not A Cheesesteak did a long post writing up of an email exchange we had where we discussed how authentic (or not) I could make a Philly Cheesesteak here in the UK. And then he said some very complementary things about my food blog, which was damned decent of him. Check it out!

Sure, sometimes, I produce a great dinner after hours of slaving in the kitchen. And then sometimes I go to the continental market, buy pain, saucisson, beurre and formaggio, and serve with homemade red onion marmalade.

(The sausages are garlic, smoked, boar, and venison; we had the garlic tonight. The cheeses are capralpina (mature goat cheese) and raschera.)

My weekend ahead, in food

  1. for tonight: I’m going to the pub to see my friend the Egg, so it’s something quick and easy. Chicken portions with stuffing and wrapped in bacon (pre-made by my butcher), with tenderstem broccoli and corn on the cob (both steamed).
  2. for tomorrow: my butcher had a deal on pork tenderloin, so I bought some off-brand bourbon 1 and I’m going to try my hand at a barbeque sauce, which I’ll use to slow-roast the pork in with onions (also inspired by Robin reminding me of the excellent time she made this for me and Danielle). Served with some sort of cajun rice concoction I haven’t worked out the details for yet.
  3. for Sunday: toad in the hole (which I’ve been obsessing about since my sister tweeted about it) with roast potatoes, peas (dammit I should have bought some fresh mint) and gravy (probably instant though).

Gentlemen 2, start your digestion!

If any of this turns out well, there’ll be posts on Objection: Salad!. If you see no posts, assume the food was a disaster.


  1. Jack Daniel’s was £21 a bottle and I don’t even like it so that struck me as extravagant for a cookery ingredient.

A reminder: if you’re not following Objection: Salad! (or RSS here, if you prefer), the food tumblr I co-write, you’re missing out on pics of the delicious things I’ve put in my mouth lately, like this German apple pancake I made for brunch today. I’ll be posting the recipe over there later today.

Home-made pizza (by PenLlawen)
Topped with chorizo, fresh mozzerella, caramelised onions, and mushrooms.
I’m still not quite there with my pizza base; some tweaking of flour type and rising time is necessary, and I think I need to buy a pizza stone. It was still delicious though!
