It gave me a moist sensation in my groin area, but only because I threw up in my lap.

Morchella: ElPresidente: When I say it's not a pie, I mean that proper fish and chips has no more place being wrapped in pastry then a bowl of cornflakes.  IT'S WRONG,

Speaking of wrong...
I'm definitely not British but I tried one of their beers last evening. Wells Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale.


Not bad, very drinkable. Never had the pudding itself, but it did taste somewhat puddingish and the toffee flavor was very evident. But it's not what I'm looking for in a beer so that's probably that for this one.


Oh, and since none was spilled in my lap or anywhere else, there was no wet sensation in my groin area.


Yeah, haven't had that one, but the folks over at Beeradvocate doesn't seem to like it all that much.  Sounds weird enough that I might just have to try it.

sendtodave: DarkVader: ElPresidente: British Farker here - no. Wrong. Bad dog, M & S - in your bed.

Nothing wrong with ingredients served separately on a plate, or especially eaten fresh outside the local chip shop when it's on newspaper and liberally sprinkled with salt and vinegar - mmmmmmmm.

But it's not a pie, you marketing wankers.

[8chan.co image 479x711]

Did you not see the picture?  Are you an idiot?

I'm an American.  It's a pie.  It's not some British definition of a pie, it's just an ordinary pie.  Of the standard pie variety.  It's pie shaped, it's got a pie crust, it's got filling, It's a pie.

And I kind of want.

What if you deconstructed the pie?

Would it still be a pie?


What a silly question.  Of course a deconstructed pie isn't a pie.  Why would you think it could be?

So, this got me thinking, what about an American South version?

Pinto beans, catfish, greens, barbecue sauce, and fried potatoes and onions?  Topped with a crawdad tail?

Anybody think that sounds worth doing?

PunkTiger: I'd give it a whirl. I loves me some fish 'n chips... never had mushy peas before, though.


Not even split pea soup?
 
2014-04-15 11:28:36 AM  
Man, now I really want fish & chips with malt vinegar. Skip the pease pudding, though. Wasn't there a discworld thing where they put ketchup on pease pudding or something like that? That might've been the one where Rincewind goes to Fourecks, or maybe Unseen Academicals, I can't remember. Sounds disgusting, whichever way.

This is what happens when you are sleep deprived and attempt to grab your dropping keyboard.

So, now that I have my keyboard available... in to my real comment.  No mushed peas.  Peas, carrotts, and corn as the base would be OK to me.  All the ingrediants need to be made separtely and then assembled for serving.

Bake the crust, prepare the veggies (with a garlic butter)  deep fry the fish and chips, and then finally assemble a great meal.  And the tarter sauce better be fresh, homemade and with capers on the side.  No tarter sauce in my veg!

/ this sounds good eats

*hurk*

Must be a regional thing.  I wasn't that interested in the fish-n-chips pie, but now that I've read your post I want one as a palate cleanser.

Peas in our time.

... also, am willing to bet <b>subby</b> is American. No farker from the European side of the Atlantic would get so excited about such an abomination of an already perfect dish. There seems to be something that appeals to the American palette in turning food into swill.

Q: Do British people have horrible teeth because they eat mushy foods OR do they eat mushy foods because they have horrible teeth?

Not a good fish counter - a great fish counter.

Well, yes. I've had split pea with ham soup before. I think it's great.

If they'd put it in a yorkshire pudding, it'd be downright amazing.

deadsanta: 581 calories is ~1/5 of a daily ration for an adult male, according to this article...

But that's only if you're a young male, say, 14-30 and you are healthy and active. Anyone older, or who works in an office environment, that's probably gonna land you several hundred calories in surplus at the end of a day. A few months later you're gonna be 10 ells overweight (or cubits, or whatever the weird English measure would be.) And people wonder why we're all so fat.


"Stone". The correct term is "stone". One stone = 4 hogsheads X 6.33 Imperial Pints X 7.11 rods / .02 fathoms.

Got it now?

I'm no expert but...: Apart from the fact that there is bugger-all filling, the pie would appear to be very small too.

And has already been pointed out, fish and chips does not need to be surrounded by pastry, it just needs a liberal covering of salt and vinegar.


I'll second this. In my quest to maintain health into my early 70s (can't afford to get ill, as a penurious expat) I've made the decision to stop all dairy products (not difficult, but kind of sad - miss cheese) and sugar (next to farking impossible - EVERYTHING processed is sweetened, and have the other stuff too).

French fries prepared very spiffily are a mainstay of my diet, but since catsup and hot sauce and barbecue sauce are all loaded to the gunwales with some variety of sweetener I've had to cut them out.

BINGO. Enter the vinegar. I've started to learn and sprinkle, various flavours of vinagre on my taters. And quickly come to love the tang. Nice substitute. (Yes I realize that some of the banished condiments listed above have vnegar as an ingredient). (Really miss the barbecue sauce but fark the sugar)

Basilicum!

deadsanta: But this suugested caloric intake is 2900 calories a day, and its offered in a confident offhand fashion that corporate fast food joints always use to disseminate bad or misleading nutritional info. There's no need to completely mislead people about their health if you are actually delivering a decent food product. And don't call me Shirley.


I completely ignored the 1/5 caloric point because it's stupid to say that, just as you pointed out, I only looked at the 519 calorie count.  My apologies!
