    Looks amazing, if someone got served that in an Indian I bet they wouldn't bat an eyelid.

    Thanks, while I've been on furlough I've been following a lot of Indian YouTube cooking guides, particularly those aimed at more of a 'British takeaway' style.

    This is a fantastic book. The tikka recipe is amazing, it’s spot on! The reviews say it all. It’s not a quick fix book, but it’s perfect if you really want to do it properly.

    Cheers, I Bought a secondhand-hand copy, sounds like an interesting book, intrigued to see how the base curry sauce will be.

    Not now but last night; made the first use of the "Wagyu" beef I ordered from a local farm. Bloke that owns it is trying to start up a herd of Wagyu and cross breeds. First cow was a few months ago which I missed, but managed to get a box of meat this time round. Ended up with 2x 500g mince, 2x 200-220g fillets, 2x 250-300g skirt steaks, 8x burgers and a 1.5kg silverside joint; all for £100.

    Decided to use one of the skirts for a chilli noodle stir fry. Oh my lord the flavour was great, the texture sublime. Very enjoyable experience to be honest. Considering skirt is usually a very lean and muscly cut, this was like butter. Making me salivate just thinking about it again :D

    My first KFC since January. Got it delivered. I got the boneless banquet. 3 mini fillets, small popcorn chicken, 2 sides (gravy and corn on the cob), 1 dip pot (Supercharger) and a can of pepsi max.

    Really enjoyed it. Could have maybe used a couple more fillets, but otherwise no complaints :)

    It's been years since I've had KFC, I'm sure it's still good though.

    I did a honey/soy-glazed pork chop with some steamed broccoli.

    Lovely Pork Chop.

    I got bored of cooking so ordered a meal from Elite Bistros at Home. Shared 3 starters and 3 desserts with a main each.

    you beat me to it, I was going to ask if you had pre-reserved
    ... obviously, you didn't have a lead time on photographing meals, like the soap opera filming.

    Couple of steak bakes from Greggs and beans for dinner. I have missed Greggs so much!

    jpaul, that looks delicious. I've been meaning to try my hand at a treacle tart for ages. Not too keen on having ginger in it, but I'd eat it anyway. Lol yeah, I guess treacle or golden syrup will last years beyond their expiry date.

    I've just had an evening cream tea. I'm doing a bit of a Raymond with the photo style.
