Food Ideas


#1

I envisaged this thread as a space where we could share whatever crazy ideas/ combinations that cross our mind and users could say whether they’re a good idea or not.

So, I’ll go first: recently, I thought you could take a chorizo ring, thread calamari rings along it like shower curtain hooks, and then bake it for a shared starter.

Has this already been done before? Would people go for it?


#2

I keep trying to pull off duck kievs with cherry sauce as the filling and a pistachio crumb instead of breadcrumbs. Haven’t nailed it yet but I’m convinced it would be awesome.


#3

Double decker Rustlers burger with the added spare rib thing.


#4

BAN REQUEST


#5

I do like duck and cherry. Pistachio sounds interesting. What has been going wrong so far?


#6

An inability to get the sauce to stay within a duck breast in a manner which lends itself to then being baked without it leaking everywhere…


#7

I don’t know if this will ever work, but I want you to know that I am willing you to succeed


#8

But… but… the crispy skin? I’m not sure about that.


#9

When I’ve attempted it before I’ve removed the skin and crisped it up independently to the rest of the breast.


#10

Good lad. Crispy duck skin shards for the win.


#11

you can’t cover it in pistachios shirley

that’s too many


#12

Don’t tell my auntie what she can and can’t do with her pistachios


#13

Kind of a pistachio/breadcrumb combination innit.


#14

Made a chili lasagne once: chili con carne between layers of pasta and bechamel, crumbled tortilla chips on top. It was :ok_hand:


#15

This is the sort of fusion I was hoping for in this thread.

Did the béchamel and the chilli go together?


#16

i’ve done a haggis lasagne before (can’t take credit for inventing it)

was alright


#17

I find it hard to believe it was just alright. Haggis makes everything taste better. Yes, everything.


#18

I’ve done black pudding ‘bolognese’ before. Pretty good.


#19

Did I ever tell you about the day I had haggis for all three meals?


#20

Yeah, pretty well - probably used slightly less bechamel than on a normal lasagne, but it was a nice combo.

Loads of grated cheese in with the tortilla crumb topping obv!
