    Nic certainly likes to be the centre of attention alright. We’re many on it.

        We've done a few

        Bastible
        Clanbrassil House
        Mr Fox
        Uno Mas
        Uno Pizza
        Two Pups
        Host
        Etto

        All involved either arranging ingredients and/or some form of heating up be it in the oven, in a pan/pot, etc. Nothing was in any way difficult but the amount of work varied between them.

        They were all very good but for us, we both agreed that Clanbrassil House just pipped them all.

          Why would you pay a restaurant to cook your own food?

            Don't have the faculty to put together a coherent rant right now but in a nutshell I see it as a category error that muddles up an anthropmorphic misunderstanding of our place in evolution with a distorted sort of spilt religon that is a curious mix of stern protestant rightousness and holier than thou hippy dippy environmentalism.
            (extended out to 200 words throwing in a few zingers )

            I don't farm myself but some of my family do and I would be invested in a few bits of livestock but thats not what bothers me, its the incoherent and inconsistent politics that IMO is fundamentally misantrophoic and as an environtmental movment offer nothing better than 'Kill yourself and save the planet'

                  So you have skin in the skin game?

                  You must know yourself remarkably well to have the view that your background conditions don't affect your feelings on this matter. And I use the word feelings advisedly as it's clearly a very emotional issue for you from all your posts on the matter.

                  I always thought it rather strange that you were so emotional about what some other people choose to eat. Knowing your connections to farming I don't now find it strange at all.

                    Nearly everyone would have some sort of connection to farming surely?

                    The organic and anti-GMO nature of a lot of vegetarian campaigns is probably what pisses some people off if they want to be correctly pissed off.

                      Pick the dish that you can cook but a restaurant does better

                      More than you think of salt,pepper, herbs, cream if called for
                      Add the cream a lot later than you would normally
                      +
                      If western food... throw a big dollop of butter into the pan/pot

                      If Indian... throw a big dollop of (clarified if you can be arsed) butter into the pan/pot + more powdered spice than you think you need

                      If Asian... throw a big dollop of Soy/Fish/sauce of choice in pan/pot with added 5 spice/MSG(easy on the salt) etc

                      More exotic than above... look at ingredients... add more of the one your not sure about

                      Appendix:From above, don't go too mad with spices etc that could kill you

                          Farming is about 5% of the workforce. "Connections" would increase that number obviously.
                          But can't see it getting anywhere near "everyone" given about half of the population lives in cities and satellite towns.

                              Yikes, even the Kochs are backing away from the GOP now. If that doesn't cause some serious soul-searching, nothing will.

                                2 nights ago I opened a bottle of wine, decent quality stuff as one would expect from a member of the HHE. Anyone I split it over 2 nights. I've had the most bizarre reaction to it. Night 1 my sinuses completely blocked up, had to get up in the middle of the night to take some gear to clear the head. I was half doubtful that it was the wine so last night I ate my dinner first and an hour later had the wine (just separating the effects of the food from the wine). A few sips in last night and the exact same thing happens - sinus immediately clogged up and took a go of meds to clear my head.

                                The wine has sulfites (220 - sulphur dioxide), it has no egg. I've drank more than my fair share of wine with sulfites but this has never happened to me. Can anybody relate?

                                    Surely it's the proselytising that he has issue with?

                                    Jehovahs witnesses knocking on your door and The Iona Institute being on TV for every civil rights discussion since God knows when vs Mary having a quiet pray to herself are certainly not equivalent.

                                              Because we're not just connected now, but through our past. So our grandparents, for example. The majority of employment was in agriculture in 1916 and I know we don't have tangible connections back to then (except strew), but our grandparents go back close enough to that.

                                                      Yes in the past, there was much higher connection to agriculture, absolutely. But we’re talking about the connection now.

                                                      I don’t think an unknown ancestor who farmed 100 years makes one connected to farming in 2021. Certainly not in a way that impacts your view of vegetarianism.

                                                                                      You don't - In a meal kit all the food is cooked.

                                                                                      It's generally a three course meal (although there is some you can go for less) so it doesn't come hot and ready to eat like a takeaway, so you need to reheat some stuff. On most of the ones we got, the starter was generally cold so you have to just arrange things on a plate, pour a dressing/sauce over it, etc - They don't have the dressing/sauce all ready on it as would be a soggy shit show by the time you get to eat it.

                                                                                      The main would normally need reheating, either meat in the oven or maybe in the pan with a sauce, you'd also reheat veg, etc

                                                                                      Desserts were generally cold also so just needed serving up.

                                                                                      The reason as to why we do it is that A) We like their food B) As good a cook as we are, we not properly trained so there stuff is better and probably most important C)If these restaurants don't get support during lockdown when they can't get people into the restaurant, they won't be still around when it's all over!
