Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

The worse pie i've had is one from M+S. I didn't realise that it shouldn't be microwaved - it went soggy  sad

Actually, when I had a trial day for a company in Soho I had a feta cheese foccacia or something similar, wayyyy to much feta cheese for my liking.

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

Yesterday our pastry chef managed to grab something a little "unusual" from a sourcing trip to London...

He came back from a chocolatiers boutique in Islington with a packet of Marmite-centred chocolates!!!!

I have to admit they were the worst thing that I have eaten for a while..... puke

The worst thing i ate this week was a take-away pizza. The cheese topping tasted like detergent. It was like they mixed the cheese with the dirty dishes. puke

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

Today I ate an aloe vera and sultana muffin - quite ok actually

Passed on the green tea scone

And got no where near the mint scone

All to do with these products being good for you and  a baker trying to make them into everyday foods.

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

The marmite centered chocolates sound a bit on the funky side but the liquid caramel sea salt centered ones sound like they would be awesome.  i would like to  try the marmite ones though.    Last year on my honeymoon in Montreal i found this little chocolate shop that did blue cheese ganache filled dark chocolates. It is a good thing i live far far away from that chocolate shop otherwise i would be buying them by the car full. They were Awesome.  The counter staff were extra snobbish even for french candians   whistle  . Also  the chocolate covered ginger wasn't very good, but i would go back in an instant for those blue cheese chocolates.  wink

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

Yeah, Paul A Youngs boutique chocolaterie was where he got them... There were other things that we tasted that were realy good, just the Marmite ones didn't float my boat hmm

I usualy realy go for the chocolate/salty or chocolate/savory thing... but chocolate/yeast extract????

When we meet up for that drink you'll have to take me there to try to change my mind Georgie... always a good excuse to visit a great chocolaterie!!!!

All the best

Re: The worst thing i've eaten this week!

Dave, I share your sentiments.  I'm not fussy about food in general but I do like it to be intended for human consumption, not invented as an industrial lubricant.
