We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Weekend Food Porn…

this_is_not_halal

Port soaked duck sausages, maple syrup coated bacon, duck eggs, orange tomatoes grilled with olive oil and fresh basil, baked beans with cracked pepper.

I am sure there is a libertarian angle to all that somewhere.

    Ok I am now hungry. My only other addition would have been a fried Portobello mushroom.

  • Laird

    Do you actually eat the Marmite, too?

  • Dom

    Yes, I like franks and beans too.

  • Cryptosynwave

    Franks… also known as mystery meat and lard, haha, the perfect food for edgy risk takers :-P

  • CaptDMO

    Where’s the ketchup?

  • Do you actually eat the Marmite, too?

    Of course! Marmite is the food of heroes! ;-)

  • Molly

    I knew I’d see those funny mice before!

    Miss me?

  • If only we could be sure the ducks were shot with a Duck Commander shotgun.

    Free Speech Free Ducks !!

  • Hello Molly! Where you been lurking lately?

  • AKM

    Damn it, I’m so hungry now.

  • How I miss hanging out around that table!

    I cannot bring myself to eat duck, I have found ducks to be intelligent creatures, having been apparently berated by some in a park in Spain after I put my finger over a fountain to make a spray that they seemed to have enjoyed as a shower, and I found when I stopped that they made noises at me that struck as noises of displeasure, as if they hoped to persuade me to continue. As they are more intelligent than tasty (and I concede that duck is very tasty), in this world of stupid collectivism I find it offends me to eat an intelligent beast absent starvation conditions.

    I find pork, beef and lamb more tasty than smart, I am not apparently wholly consistent but these are my subjective valuations as objective facts.

    Marmite is for Nancies who can’t handle Vegemite

  • The Literate Platypus

    The only difference between Vegemite and Marmite is the shape of the bottle :-P

    Even Progressives will do that. Especially Progressives. ;^)

  • Johnathan Pearce

    Mostly paleo (I wrote about this a few weeks ago) but the beans aren’t!

    Yum-yum!

  • Regional

    The Literate Platypus,
    What drugs are you on?

  • Mr Ed

    PfP, yes, but I can readily distinguish Progressives from ducks or Duck (when cooked, by elimination i.e. in a blind tasting, if it does not taste like duck, it must be a Progressive, as eaten in North Korea, Ukraine, Kazakstan etc, during socialism-induced famines).

    I forgave the ducks their impertinence, they appeared to understand cause and effect. How many Progressive pretend not to?

  • lucklucky

    Of course there is. Taste variety.

  • Steve Brown

    Egg? Check.
    Beans? Check.
    Bangers? Check.
    Bacon? Not a lot, but Check.
    Grilled toms? Check.
    Black Pudding? … Black Pudding? … Last call. BLACK PUDDING? … Missing
    THAT’S NOT A BREAKFAST!!

  • Steve Brown

    Oh! And Vegemite is for wussies, Marmite is the REAL thing!

  • I would not care for what you eat, but I will defend to the death your right to eat it.

  • Jason

    What’s the difference between Marmite ‘Gold Label’ (if that’s what it says) and normal Marmite? More vitamin B? Extra yeasty?

  • It is more intense Jason… stronger… like getting hit in the face with a Yeast Hammer… an extra added Marmite wallop that is far too strong for those delicate Aussies with their faux Marmite-Lite impostor product ;-)

  • Jaded Voluntaryist

    I miss food like that. I imagine that single meal rather massively exceeds the daily recommended 6g of salt limit, when you consider the beans, the sausage and the marmite.

    Since being diagnosed with Meniere’s, I’ve had to start giving all forms of salt a wide berth otherwise the room starts spinning wildly to the accompaniment of a loud whining soundtrack. I imagine such a breakfast would have me on the floor for a few days.

    Ah well….

  • Jason

    Sounds great Perry. Also sounds like an export opportunity…

    JV, is that just NaCl? Some people with high blood pressure – of course no-one round here would be hypertensive – use potassium as an alternative.

  • Jaded Voluntaryist

    There’s not a whole lot of solid research on it Jason. My ENT basically say “Some people think cutting out salt helps….”. I’ve not been able to find if that only applies to sodium or potassium salts.

    To be on the safe side I avoid both. By my reckoning I eat less than 1.5g of either each day.

    It’s something to do with salt raising the fluid pressure in the inner ear. Certainly cutting down seems to have made a massive difference, although inferring causation is difficult in these cases.

    Wot? No fried slice?

    llater,

  • Hi Perry, Were these purchased from us (AC Silver), I find this so great if they are. If they aren’t they are still great pieces :)

  • ACSilver antiques – these were purchased from an antique shop in Portobello Road, London. :)

  • Oh they are fab, we had some very similar to these, they sold very quick too.
