We were watching Masterchef The Professionals and this is one of the items they had on tonight's table for the 12 chefs to pick from.

I have never heard of it before:

a John Dory fish.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dory

That is one ugly fish.

Out of that whole ugly fish,

you get a tiny filet on the plate.

Maybe 8 oz?

Where's the rest of it?

Look at the miserable look on the face of that fish. He's ugly....and he's being eaten. And you think YOU have problems?

I am not much of a fish fan.

I also don't want to see a fish with the eyes staring back at me.

Fish is healthier for you.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Nothing beats a well marbled rib-eye. Well, a 1 1/2 inch thick perfectly seasoned and cooked pork chop would run a close race.

A properly done salmon steak is right up there IMO, as long as we're talking fresh, non farmed salmon.

We have a store here that sells pork chops from pigs raised in the UK.

Center Porterhouse cut chops are $10 a lb.

Each chop is about 16-20 oz cause of the bone.

But they are soooo good and moist and juicy even after you grill them.

I think their name is Berkshire if I am remembering right.

That looks like a Verlasso Salmon steak, Crane Hunter

Only salmon steaks I eat.

British fishermen, much constrained by EU fishing quotas feel fortunate when they land John Dorys. Much valued, particularly in France I believe.

Though not popular now, English Fish 'n' Chip shops used to sell 'Rock Salmon', as nobody would want to eat Dog fish which is was it's true title.

It's my understanding that "real" English fish & chips is usually either Plaice or Cod?

Cod is more traditional I would say Panzer. At least in the fish and chip shops I've frequented,if I wanted Plaice I would have to ask for it,because if you ask for fish and chips you are getting Cod for sure.

Nothing against a salmon steak, but I think salmon is better in fillet.

Now HALIBUT steaks, oh yeah...

Snails and squids don't whet the average appetite, but escargot and Calamari are delicious (IMO). In fact, most seafood "on the hoof (fin?)" look at least a little disgusting. Cows aren't exactly going to win any aesthetics competitions, either. Fortunately, not only do we not have to marry it, most of the time we don't have to prepare it, either.


SALUTE TO ALL!

Salmon steaks are more forgiving to cook than filets as they don't dry out as easily.

A moderate sear on both sides does the job, while the skin holds in all the juices and oil that you'd probably otherwise lose in a filet.

Plus, you don't have to worry about the skin sticking or burning.

I never had true authentic English Fish and Chips.

I need to take a trip to the UK.

Especially when I saw this episode a few years ago.

Move forward by about 9 minutes.

Depends on how you're cooking it. For the BBQ yeah steaks are definitely easier to manage. Myself, I mostly do fish either in the oven or on a cast iron skillet. But I'll cook any meat via any means and make it good!

I usually go skillet, I've found that you need a great BBQ setup to beat cast iron, and then only because your typical household stovetop heating elements are a limiting factor.

If you're able to use a stove that's topped with a 1 inch slab of iron as its heating surface, then the pan wins bigly.

Fish 'n' chips was a Jewish concoction originally, and today this 'English traditional dish' seem to be in the safe hands of Cypriots in the majority. We are blessed in having two award winning Chippys in our nearest town of Pershore, well worth the round trip of 12 miles for cod, chips and mushy peas!

I'm lucky that there is one good example of a British fish & chip shop in Prague, actually a lot better than some of the ones back in the UK smile it's a nice treat every now & then. It even does haggis & chips, which as a Scot I hugely appreciate smile

Britain isn't really known for its fine cuisine, but there are a few dishes I regard very highly:
Fish & chips
Roast dinner
Full English breakfast

No longer served on newspaper KK,health and safety.

My 2 local fish and chip shops are only average. I boycotted the one over poor quality at one point but it's a 2 minute walk from where I live so I relented for convenience.

I would gladly travel the 15 miles to Pershore once in a while though to get a really good meal. Can you name the chippies BD-123?

Newlands at 21a Newlands, Pershore WR10 1BW
Was my primary choice but often very busy but:
Riverside at 53 High St, Pershore WR10 1EU
since refurb is coming up to a similar high standard.

Do you recall Honky Fletcher's in Lowesmoor Chucky? I was installing signage for the new owners who took it over when Honky retired and watched in horror as they slid out the old fryers which came out unexpectedly easily due to the six inch layer of grease underneath.

I did frequent Honky Fletchers. This must have been in the late 60's early 70's. I used to eat in with mates of mine.

It was probably one of the last times I drank Dandelion and Burdock,you don't seem to see it nowadays.

Traditional British cuisine is underrated IMO, most of it suffers from not looking all that appealing, but it tastes fine.

Speaking of British cuisine. My brother and co-workers went to UK one time years ago on business and one of his colleague ordered the Yorkshire pudding thinking it was a dessert after they just finish off a big supper.

The waitress double checked and asked him is that really what you want and he said yes.

Everyone at the table knew what it was except his colleague and no one told the guy and they kept telling the waitress, he is a big eater, go ahead and bring it

To each their own of course but I just can't grasp the entertainment value of cooking shows. I know those are both very popular in both the UK and the US.

Then again I also don't grasp the entertainment value of reality shows, talent shows, home improvement shows, etc.

Rich people eat the strangest food.

Duck liver, oyster emulsion, celeriac (whatever that is).

Just give me a nice 85/15 burger or a ribeye/NY strip/T-bone steak and a loaded baked potato.

I don't want fancy.

I want food that fills me up.

That's the problem with this rich people fancy food:

they spent $200, $300, $500 on a 7-10 course meal featuring dishes with a one ounce peace of meat/seafood decorated with flowers and sauces and still come away hungry.

I've never eaten chickens feet, but my grandparents love them. They'd cook them up in soup. Many of the other Eastern European immigrants I grew up with liked them as well.
I don't know if it's considered a delicacy, or if it's just that they're frugal and don't let anything go to waste.

That may well be a six inch skillet - it's sitting on a small rectangular "accessory range" to the right of the full size stovetop, and those usually have small burners, especially if there's two of them (you can see two dials at the back).

And since that's a "chef style" skillet with curved walls you'd probably have 4 inches of flat cooking surface - heck even my cast iron 6 inchers (skillets are always measured by outside diameter) with nearly vertical walls probably only have 5...

So doubtful those shrimp are all THAT big, but still bigger than average...

Speaking of Skillets...

Gennaro ROCKS!



I watched that guy linked above (the cooking with the blues guy) more than a few times, he makes a lot of colorless blobs of meals imo. The may taste good, but to me a meal that looks good and smells good, then it's a safe bet it's gonna taste good.

I was looking for a specific Gennaro Contaldo vid where he is cooking outside of some farms barn/equipment area, stops to taste what he is making, rolls his eyes, looks up to the sky and asks, "God, why you a make me cook so good?" smile

Watching tonight's episode. This is new to me. Sabayon with fruit: strawberries, blackberries, peach, cherries, raspberries, kirsch and peach snahpps. Sabayon is beaten egg yolk and sugar and mix with whipped cream.

One of my grandmothers (decades deceased) grew up in pretty hardcore poverty in Kansas during the Great Depression. As in working the land and living in a cardboard house...

Even when she was much, much better off in the late 1970's she'd still not let anything go to waste from a chicken, and when I was a kid we'd eat it all - hearts, livers, gizzards, necks, backs, and probably more that I can't remember...

But I don't recall chicken feet - but thinking back about her it wouldn't surprise me if SHE'D been eating those, maybe not "forcing that on the grandkids", or maybe just enjoying them as her personal treat, who knows lol!

It's funny - I only recently (well, as in about 6 years ago) discovered chicken leg quarters in grocery stores. That's just thigh and leg but still attached to a portion of the back. You barely get any meat from the back (WAY less than even a wing), but it sure has a taste and texture of it's own, and that backbone imparts flavor to the thigh and leg that simply doesn't happen if you cook a whole chicken...

Chicken leg 1/4 are best on the bbq. Better than wings or drumsticks cause those will dry up being boney. I eaten chicken livers and gizzards before. It was in fried chicken I order.

I don't do organ meats of ANY type but then again, I didn't grow up during the Great Depression.

Not so keen on kidney but that's it for 'offal' as far as I'm concerned.

Why not/how was it cooked? Halibut (at least Atlantic Halibut) has a fairly mild flavour & grows up to 500lb so you shouldn't be able to complain about just getting a small portion from it ... : neaner P
Apparently in some parts of the world some fish are passed off as halibut that really aren't ...
It's an expensive fish here as due to demand it is rare/largely fished out here but there is at least 1 place that farms them.

Anyone eaten celeriac? What does it taste like? Why is celeriac such a big thing? It's a root.

Not enough chocolate sponge for a typical British Black Forest Gateau (I have no idea about for a real German schwarzwälder kirschtorte).

Tonight was the final episode of this year's competition. 32 professional chefs entered the competition 5 weeks ago, 3 remain for tonight's final, only 1 was the 2020 winner and I did expect him to win. Looking on the program Facebook page, many shared my same reaction.

They love to cook fruit. One episode last year someone grilled watermelon.

I like my fruit the way it was from the mother nature. Not everything should be cooked.

Thank you for this. I had heard of "Bubble & Squeak" before and I knew it was some sort of dish in the UK but I had no idea what the ingredients were. smile

From the Wiki article: "garnish'd with Eddowes Cow Bumbo"

I have no clue what that is. LOL

It's more of an English dish, certainly not generally a Scottish things (but the Scots & Irish do have our own dishes for using cheap/leftover ingredients - not sure about the Welsh).
I have no idea what Eddowes Cow Bumbo is either - consigned to history, I guess.

I love to use up my left-over veggies to make B&S. Just needs a couple of fried eggs on the top to finish it off.

When I make my B&S I finely chop the veggies and just fry them up whilst my sister-in-law mashes them all up to make a kind of patty. I'm ok with either but my way is less prep time.

That's the sort of consistency I go for Red although I don't put any meat in it. I might have some cold turkey on the side at Christmas though. That looks delicious.

They may look similar but are different families of plant & imo have quite different texture & flavour.

Greens are good for you & properly cooked samphire has nice texture & flavour.
Personally, I reckon that lobster & salmon are overrated & the best bit of that pie would be the smoked haddock.

We used to catch perch and fry the tails. Just like potato chips.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.

A lot. & there are massive regional styles/variations in Indian curry alone (not qualified to comment on Thai/Japanese) - lots of flavours & heatwise they run all the way from mild to oh, my god I am eating fire :P. https://curryculture.co.uk/types-of-curry/
Then there is Chinese (again many regional variants), Malaysian, Singapore, Sri Lankan ...

The British introduced the Japanese to curry in the 19th century.

I've never had Japanese curry. About the only spicy Japanese thing I've tried is the wasabi that is often served with sushi.

Japanese curry is kind of the same with different regions having different spices and ingredients. Never found a curry that could match what they served at Coco Ichibanya when I was in Okinawa.

You are right NFB. It is a massive cake that was made to celebrate the Queen's recent 96th birthday. She had to get Prince William to use his helicopter to blow the candles out.

Not surprising given that it is filmed here.

They were joking about the egg(shell) presentation. Soldiers (thin slices of toast) are a common (dipping) accompaniment to soft-boiled eggs here in the UK. They are not paired with everything.
Not aware myself of brown sauce being one for soft-boiled eggs though (fried eggs, yes) but apparently the combo is for some - http://www.gbsauce.com/great-recipes/36-brown-sauce-soldiers.

Gordon Ramsey actually show the contestants how to cook. I didn't know he cook or own restaurants. I know him from his show where he goes to other folks restaurants and #%&*$# about the food.

48 contestants began 6 weeks ago and now there are only 3. 23 years old: the youngest of the 48.

College student that just earn a law degree who said she ate out a lot and if she did cook, she only knew to make beans and toast and eggs. Then Covid came and she had to lock down at home with Mom for 12 months: she spent that time learning to cook.

NFB should apply to be a host on the Food Network.

Are their hosts allowed to show favoritism for pretty, young, female contestants?

BBC, not Food Network.

Each of the final 3 had 1 hour and 30 minutes to cook a 3 course meal of appetizer, main course, and dessert for Judges Gregg and John : total 6 plates of food per contestant.

EDDIE: https://imgbox.com/g/VFOV6Pyy3z

POOKIE: https://imgbox.com/g/UKqqmyOPh3

and RADHA, the 23 years old college student/future lawyer.

She didn't win. EDDIE won.

I am very sad BUT I still wish her luck and success. She has a law degree and wants to become a lawyer. But many of the past Master Chef contestants, after appearing on the show, have left their previous lives and careers to become successful restaurant owners, writing cook books, doing catering for the wealthy. Maybe cooking is her true calling, not being a lawyer.

Not a big fan of kidneys myself but fish (in various forms but sardines is a common one) on toast is a fairly normal thing in Europe.

Do you like toast?
Do you like fish?
Do you like tomatoes?
Do you like tapenade?

If so what is wrong with putting them all together? ... It isn't a million miles from a seafood pizza.

I don't like fish except for fried catfish. I never had tapenade, I can't say I like it or don't like it. Seeing it in the episode yesterday was first time I heard of such thing.

As a kid, would have heated frozen fish sticks with yellow relish sandwiches.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

I don't like those. Crab, lobster and crawfish you work a lot for little reward.They cost ton $. Not my liking.

Rabbit. If I get that at a restaurant, I send it back. That's an appetizer, not a meal. How much is a rabbit dish? $40?

That type of crab is quite cheap in the UK, it is our local. Probably £20-25 in a normal restaurant?

I similarly, find lobster quite bland - all the flavour is in the sauce that goes with it ...

Just watch the final episodes. I knew she was going to win from her first appearance weeks ago when she did the skill test. Out of 32 Chefs she had the best skill test result.

She is not even a head chef, she is a Chef De Partie (Station Chef/Line Cook). At 24 years she beat out other Chefs, including some have been cooking for 20-30 years and who currently own their own restaurants. That is impressive.

No I did not. I did not post photos of the dishes the 10 semi finalist and then 6 finalist and then 4 finalist made between 11-26 and Sunday cos I was busy. I also didn't post the dishes the other 2 finalist made Sunday night against Nikita cos I was busy again. That would had been 8 more posts with at least 100 photos.

I cooked for over 40 years, while the presentation, the art of these dishes is wonderful, a plate like that would be way more expensive than you would care to eat and you get a very small portion. I hate all these shows with a passion and don't even get me started on the singing competition shows. They want to create drama and I get that it's for entertaining but it really is just a bunch of crap. You want drama? Film a busy Restaurant on a Holiday like Mothers Day or Valentine's boy howdy and you'll see all kinds of drama and a lot of NSFW language, emotional meltdowns and entitled customers.

I looked through a relatively recent Forbes list of the most expensive cities to live in and NYC has actually dropped down several spots. Oslo, London, San Francisco and Tokyo were higher up on the list than NYC

No? Google fish en croute (or fish in pastry).
How about fish pie? (btw have you heard of stargazy pie?)

Honestly. Never but you now have me curious.

We Yanks don't have many dishes with meats and fish in pastry. I can only think of pot pies.

Never seen a Welsh Rarebit before today.

I HEART to try it.

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

Evidently it's also known as

Quote
English rabbit, Scottish rabbit, buck rabbit, golden buck, and blushing bunny.

(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_rarebit)

but it does not incorporate rabbit meat.

Rabbits across all England are breathing a sign of relief.

It's all in the marketing. Even raw, all those other meat cuts (beef, pork, etc . . .) tend not to be accompanied by pictures of sad cow eyes or nasty swine rutting in their own feces. And when it comes to fish, I don't need to see any of their selfies - just put a photo of the already breaded and fried fish sticks on the box next to a glop of tartar sauce.


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

One of the contestants tonight made sardines on toast.

It's pretty but as a Yank, I won't eat it.

That looks rather fancy. I just empty the tin of sardines (cold) onto my toast and I'm done.

She did not move to next week's contest with that sardines on toast. The judges thought it was just sardines on toast, nothing fancy and the eggrolls things next to it filled with squid and prawn were not good.

I like most varieties of fish but not sardines. They're just too fishy smelling for me.

It's final week. The final 3 contestants will cook tomorrow night for the winning trophy.

Tonight they went to cook at this 3 Michelin Stars restaurant headed by a Lady Chef https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clare_Smyth who once cooked for Gordon Ramsey and then was head chef of one of his restaurants.

She also catered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 2018 wedding.

Looking at the menu, too expensive and nothing I want to eat. The Chef's table experience requires a £2000 non-refundable deposit.. GET OUT!!!!

https://www.corebyclaresmyth.com/home/about-core/

The Lady Chef also holds a MBE. I didn't know what MBE is so I Google it.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_British_Empire

They gave that to a Chef? Did she fought in a war, was wounded while risking her life to save fallen comrades?

The MBE is not an exclusively military award such as the Victoria Cross.
