Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

KFC Crisis Continues

It appears that the new distribution centre at Rugby is to blame for the KFC crisis, apparently drivers are having to wait for hours to access the site and chicken is being wasted.

It seems that the depot simply isn't yet ready for KFC.

As can be seen from the above photo, the crisis has caused panic in the streets.

DHL Cock Up Forces KFC To Shut Most of Its UK Outlets

Having changed its logistics partner to DHL over the weekend, KFC has been forced to close the majority of its 900 outlets in Britain.

Seemingly DHL have yet to master the art of delivering chicken in the UK.

It seems that The Giant Cheese Board, advertised as an unlimited cheese fest promising to take revellers to “cheesey heaven” at Studio 338, south-east London has been (according to Twitter) a shambles and a farce.

The organisers have posted a point by point rebuttal on Facebook, which itself has been rebutted by Facebook users in the comments section.

Happy World Pasta Day!

Celebrate World Pasta Day by cooking some pasta at home, or going out for some.

Here is a short list of some of my favourite places in Brighton that serve good pasta:

La Capannina
Buon Appetito

Additionally, although it is not an Italian restaurant, the beef brisket ragu with pappardelle pasta and truffle oil at The Independent is first class!

Advice To Chefs - Don't Experiment On Your Customers

Whilst I appreciate that chefs need to be innovative and that, in this age of aggressive Ramsay style chef celebrities, every chef wants to be a star.

May I remind you that customers don't all want snail flavoured sorbets served over dry ice. Some of us just want a nice meal that is consistent with the basic rules of good cooking, namely:

1 The meal is served on a plate, not in a jar or on a plank or piece of slate.

2 There is sufficient food on the plate.

3 The food is not drowned in some over priced reduction/jus.

4 The meat is tender, and does not have the consistency of a boiled cows udder.

5 Salt and pepper is on the table, and customers aren't made to feel guilty for using it.

6 The vegetables are actually cooked, broccoli etc is not meant to be crunchy!

In other words please remember you are cooking for customers, who are not laboratory mice to be experimented with!

Your ego and career need to take second place.

Breakfast In A Jar - An Abomination!

Some chefs, in a desperate bid to appear to be "on trend" and grab some attention, appear to be having a mental breakdown.

It's an abomination, put it on a farking plate!!!
