Today's lunch, kimchi quesadilla:

Dinner, chicken burgers with bacon, Roquefort, pickles, and sriracha mayo.

Isn't anybody else gonna play?

I have eaten many a Greenhalgh's pasty, pastry, and bread, sausage rolls and pork pies (although I am not a particular fan of that style of pork pie), but never any of their pies, within the meaning of the act. Might wander up the hill and change that.

Burgers innit.

Bought a new induction bowl burner (for woks) and resurrected my old wok that I haven't been able to use since I moved to an apartment with no gas cooking.


It's a bit powerful.

Made another two Fuchsia Dunlop recipes, both new to me: broad beans with ya cai, and sichuan chicken livers with celery.


One of my best meals of the whole lockdown.

I was about to recommend their cheese pasties, which are strange but incredible delicious, but then realised it's you. The Lancashire pasties are good too.

I would counsel you to buy one of their "crumpet loaves" and some really good salted butter - Tesco sell beurre d'Isigny, for example. Really good toast.

Truly a wise and generous man! Top bloke.

Impressive. I'm not much under 40, and will probably never break 30.

Thing is, man, what we all should be doing ain't what we all are doing, just like always. Credit earned honestly.

We don't have "likes" on here, so this is me thanking all involved for a slice of positivity.

I do. The 19th, that's what.

Pork and peppers again. The veg dish was tasty but ugly, so no share there.

Quite right too.

Wednesday, now-traditional post-grocery packaged pizza. Asda sourdough, decent chew, not bad.

Thursday, chicken burgers with stuff.

Friday, gong bao and ginger broccoli. Remembered I owned rice bowls. Need to find some small square plates.

Plating needs work:


Cooked low and slow over the course of nearly an hour.

EDCLARKE said:that looks bloody lovely , I think it should be compulsory to post the recipe !Happy

The beans: par-boil green beans for a couple of minutes, rinse in cold water, leave to drain.

Fry some cut up dried Sichuan chillis and szechuan peppercorn for a few seconds until the chillis start to change colour, then add about three cloves thinly sliced garlic and the same of ginger, stir until it starts to smell good, then (I forgot) add some yu cai (I was going to use nduja, in fact; you could add a little minced pork or bacon at the start instead), then add the beans and fry for a few minutes. Season with salt, plate, sprinkle with sesame oil.

The pork with chillis is based on this, with not enough chilli (I used all I had), and no lard or MSG because I didn't have them either, and the knife skills of a small child by comparison:

I also don't have a wok range like a f**king jet engine, more's the pity.

Useful and interesting article about likely and unlikely transmission routes:

Basically: being around people indoors for lengths of time is dangerous. Physical contact with people or surfaces is dangerous if you touch your face afterwards (which you absolutely do). Being coughed or sneezed near, or not long before in a confined space, is dangerous.

Not much else is, very.

Thank you. I hardly cook these days, at least this situation has got that again. I'm no substitute for a good restaurant, though.


Pork loin with green chillis (six medium, seeds and all); Sichuan dry-fried green beans without the ingredient I just this second realised I forgot; Jasmine rice. Pork delicious, beans not bad considering.

Last night, keema with peas (not, strictly, keema mattar) and a sort of mushroom bhaji, both the second half of what I cooked Thursday, with Tesco naan.


The night before, chicken gong bao, tenderstem with sizzling oil, Jasmine rice.

Better photo of a previous gong bao attempt:
