Pulled pork is arguably my favourite burger topping next to cheese.
You should follow your dreams and your powerbelly and set up business.


I will do a pulled pork again soon and let you know how it goes.

The wheels are in motion, and we are making plans and costing stuff up. Most likely going to remortgage the house to release some equity.

Just need a little gimmick to stand out. Someone said to me that I should mention that I won the local strongman competition in my town, and then my missus won it 2 years later (This year) and angle it like that.

I'd rather let the food do the talking, but we do something initially to make us stand out from 5000 other companies etc.

This is my first post, been a long time sugden reader and particularly enjoy this thread.
I think there needs to be a restaurant similar to hooters in concept except it's called beavers and the waitresses are naked from the waist down with the special being fish finger sandwiches.

Probably on about 300g of pasta, maybe 150g chicken mince (normal mince is about £10 a kilo here but NMW is about £450 a month) 75g or so of grated halloumi, mushrooms I picked in the woods, a pepper I grew myself, and some mint from t'garden.

It's all in one ridiculously big plastic bowl that people have salad from in the middle of a table.

Pork belly marinated in hoisin sauce for 24hrs.
Potato wedges with paprika, salt, pepper, olive oil.
Braised red cabbage, red onion, sea salt, black pepper, red wine vinegar. Couldn't find caraway seeds.

Edit: Cooked it myself. Rather proud.

Great job sir.

I smoked some beef ribs the other night, were decent.

300g Amberjack for me, with roasted peppers, roasted onion, plus a big plate of seafood tagiatelle (cuttlefish, squid, octopus, prawns)
300g swordfish for the lady, but I nicked some of it.

Couldn't hear the person next to me because the restaurant was so packed. Then went over to her parent's place and got some halloumi pastries which I only just remembered about now, so I'm off to scoff them.

Saturday I had the pleasure of her dad's cooking - back in his heyday it was Famagusta's go-to place for slow cooked lamb with potatoes. I think he cooks it for 4 hours before he serves it, but the oven is left on all day. We got there at 5, so probably been cooked for about 10 hours. It had the texture of skate - everything just fell apart.

I've been to Hawksmoor. It was predictably excellent.

Shaky Pete's Ginger Brew

Bread and beef butter
Potted beef and bacon with Yorkshire and onion gravy

Half a bacon double cheeseburger (should have had the standard burger, it's better)
Half a sirloin steak
Beef dripping fries
Spinach with garlic and lemon
Bernaise

Rhubarb and stem ginger tart

(A fair bit less than) my share of 6.75 litres of wines between five of us.

Monday is £5 corkage day at Hawksmoor, so we turned up with six bottles, three of which magnums. I was restrained and only brought one bottle of GOOD shiraz.

Sounds amazing.

Iíve only been to hawksmoor the once, and I was cutting weight for a comp at the time... Such a t**t!

Iím hoping to go again this year though and fill my boots.

Was there any particular highlights from that lot? Iíve got one of their books and Iíve got my eye the potted beef and Yorkshire puds.

Iíve recently sourced a superb butcher that dry ages their own rare breed beef. Absolutely superb. Iíve got 3kg of bone in sirloin from a belted Galloway. Itís at about 60 days at present... Exciting!

The tart had superb flavour and presentation, but had to be dissected to eat due to big pieces of delicious rhubarb.

The fries and Bernaise are always amazing. I personally prefer the dripping fries to the triple-cooked chips.

The sirloin was good but I like their rump better. At lunchtime they do rump and chips for £15, which is insane value.

I always enjoy the potted beef but it doesn't make my heart sing. I miss the tartare.
