    I know someone above posted a link to a book but I'd highly recommend Indian Kitchen by Maunika Gowardhan. I've done a few recipes now and they have all been absolutely superb. I just stocked up on kashmiri chilli powder specifically :)

    I cooked this last night; Dandan Mian (Dan Dan noodles). It was amazing, so moreish.

    Recipe was from @pippyeats who apparently won Britains Best Home cook (the cheesy wannabe Bakeoff spinoff I think, I never watched it). But she knows her stuff, makes noodles from scratch etc. She has a book coming out soon which I'll probably buy based on that success.

    EDIT: I used this chilli oil from Amazon

    Oysters and smoked salmon overlooking Loch Fyne. Good ingredients, fresh as anything, done simply. Bliss! (The view photo isn't mine, but it did look like that albeit with some cloud just above the hills).

    I like the idea of trying one of their bean burgers but don't think I could actually ever not just order the flesh burger. That said I only get to eat at BB once every couple of years but suppose you live in the mighty 'ford do you @Raymond Lin so could enjoy thier lovely lovely food as often as you wish - and now delivered so I hear!!!

    I could get it every day but it’ll get expensive. I rarely go there as I tend to make my own, I’ve made them for couple of people at work when I pop home for lunch and all of them have said “this is better than beefy boys!” And “you should open a restaurant”.

    So getting the bean burger was a combination of that isn’t something I make at home, I’m trying to eat less meat and I did say to my friend opposite me “I’m trying to eat less”, so it would look like a massive liar if 5mins later I order a massive burger lol.

    So instead of Burger & Lobster I do Ramen & Burger? :p The trademark will be R & B. Kinda catchy actually!

    Tasty bits of bacon and burger (of the bean variety if you're being good) floating in a lovely cheesy broth. With added bacon bits and chives on top.

    People may mock for being fusion or too fancy for Hereford, but let them mock, for this time next year Raymond Trotter....

    lol, I won’t do that kind of fusion, it’s going to be authentic if I do it. (as authentic as a British Chinese trying to make American and Japanese food!). It will also have a really limited menu.

    2 kinds of ramen. Pork or miso (for the V) & 1 kind of burger, but you can have single or double patty, with or without it cheese.

    There’s rumours of a Wagamama opening up near me. What’s their ramen like, is it decent or a poor imitation of the real thing?
