lets have a barbecue!

… “the Queen Mary 2 of outdoor cooking is the $35,000 Talos Outdoor Cooking Suite sold by Frontgate, a luxury goods catalog retailer. The sprawling stainless steel temple features a searing station with a restaurant-style griddle, a hardwood cutting board, two side burners to heat sauces, a warming drawer, 3/8-inch-thick cooking grates, a 16,000-B.T.U. ceramic infrared rotisserie, a bartender module with a sink and a nine-volt electronic ignition system. The company doesn’t release specific sales data, but a spokeswoman, Amy Crowley, said that fewer than 50 have been sold.”

Bristol Slow Food market – 5 march 06

As I’ve said before, we only get a decent food market here in Bristol on the first Sunday of the month, so we tend to make the most of it. Here’s this month’s haul:

  • 4 packs of organic mutton (mutton! rar!)
  • 1 organic leg of lamb for today’s lunch
  • um .. 6 packs of sausages. Pork, pork with juniper, toulouse, pork with cracked black pepper, venison and oatmeal (these are lovely), venison with marmite (the jury’s out)
  • 1 potato sourdough loaf
  • 2 raspberry and almond muffins
  • 1 monkfish tail
  • 1 undyed smoked haddock fillet
  • 1 dried lime, a pack of saffron, a chai tea spice ball
  • 1 camembert
  • 2 duck breasts
  • home cured Exmoor organic ham and bacon

That should keep us going till next month, I think.
