The movie, not the Lenny Henry thing. Although that might have been good, can't remember.

Craster, Gaywood and I would like to run a food van, but there are space issues.

For us.

Inside a van.

Make Mr Dave an honorary Yes! Chef.

Only if you want awesome desserts. And more space.

I really, really want a pulled pork on dirty white bread sandwich right now.

Most frustrating about this is that while we actually do have dirty white bread for the first time in months (because we decided that the every-Thursday mobile chippy deserved some love last night but fuck their overpriced bread), all the pulled pork (of which there is quite a lot) is well and truly frozen.

At lunch today multiple other people told me I should give up software to park a smokehouse van outside the building.

I'm considering asking the company to change my job title to Senior Meat Engineer; I'd still do the stuff I do now but, unlike Senior Software Engineer, I could actually perform my job title at the same time.

They would be getting MORE value for their money.

I was given a copy of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat for my birthday. I've only just dipped into but so far it looks like it's going to be an interesting read and if it delivers like I think it will, I suspect that a few of the foodies on here will also like and learn stuff from it. It was recommended to me by HC's cousin who is an engineer, so I'm trusting that the science parts of it are legit.

I was also given a Hocho Santoku knife, which I have to say is pretty awesome. Obviously, it's beautifully balanced and very sharp. I'll keep you posted on how it pans out with regular use and how easy it is to maintain the edge. I'm lead to believe that it should only really need sharpening very infrequently. I'm mildly anal about keeping my knives sharp and have a plethora of devices for maintaining their edges, such as a Lansky's kit, various diamond blocks, and a belt sander!

I suggested that book to the other Yes, Chef!s and they scoffed at it.

See, Chefs?

I scoffed indeed. Not at the content, I'm sure it's great, but at the wording of the description that suggests she discovered some incredible set of secrets, rather than just writing a book about the stuff that other chefs knew anyway because McGee had written it all down when she was 5 years old.
