What gourmet delicacy did you discover/try for the first time this year?



Mine would be figatelli. A dry heavily garlic'd smoked pig liver sausage.

Delish. :thumbs:


(Supposedly a bit dodge as you can supposedly catch Hep."E" if you eat it uncooked.
Funny what you find when just Googling for a word spelling :eek:)

Fresh raw anchovies, dressed with salt and lemon juice :thumbs:

(I hate the rancid fetid little ****ers that insane people put on pizza :vomit:)

Andouilette Sausage (in Paris). Quite liked it actually. :eek:

I also went to a Michelin starred restaurant (The Kitchin in Leith) for the first time and experienced the most amazing delicately yet intensely flavoured and perfectly prepared and cooked food.

Well, if Bobda is moving the goal posts to include restaurants.....

Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant
Rick Stein's Cafe
Rick Stein's Fish & Chip Shop
Rojanos
Paul Ainsworth @ No 6
The Yew Tree (Marco Pierre White)

And I have discovered sushi, which found to be more than acceptable.

And crocodile in Houston.

And lobster.

Oy you two, less of the boasting.

Stay on topic! :rant:


(I went to a 1 star Miche-resto for works Xmas dinner and it sadly sucked. :()

I'd love to join in with the boasting :D

Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant excellent :D
Rick Stein's Cafe not bad :)
Rick Stein's Fish & Chip Shop, pricey and the Neptune in Lancaster is better :tut:

The cookery school is pretty impressive, three days of cooking with Stein's brigade and free wine was great :smug:


The Swan (Marco Pierre White) home made piccalilli and pork terrine was :inlove:
Shame he's sold it :tut:

The Witchery's scallops, with smoked pancetta and garlic :inlove:

Ushers Restaurant in the Norton House Hotel, the taster menu is :thumbs:

I went to The Witchery as well as few weeks ago - not as good as the Kitchin, although their mashed potato was the best I've ever had. The venison wasn't bad either.

I actually thought it was very good - we had takeaway; I had monkfish and C had something else that I can't remember.

Deep fried battered monkfish is fab :thumbs:

Don't get me wrong I didn't think it was bad, I just wanted something a bit better for the price I paid, I had haddock and chips with mushy peas :)

I think Mrs VD should get some kind of Keith Floyd Memorial Award
for educating VD in the gourmet delights of fish 'n' seafood.

That's definitely more in the style of Mr Floyd :lol:

A true legend of pre-PC gastronomic TV.
