New culinary low [Dec. 17th, 2011|03:56 pm]
Richard Clegg
Today I reached a new low by failing to cook a Fray Bentos "put it in the oven in the tin and that's it" pie. For some reason the instruction to remove the lid before cooking had an "on no account" added to it. I remembered to open the tin but then left the lid on. This meant that the flaky pastry (the only really nice bit) welded itself to the lid. Fortunately, the heated metal disk with razor-sharp edges cauterised the wound it caused -- which is handy... I guess. I'll eat out tonight. It's safest.

I don't know what it is about them... there's that kind of glutinous still doughy layer of slightly weird pastry that always lurks at the bottom looking like it's uncooked but is somehow delicious. There's the weird mouth-feel of the meat which is slightly sweat and has that pleasant greasiness (like sunny delight actually) which spreads the taste and then there's the top layers of really over crispy pastry which have risen several inches about the tin and flake off all over the place like they're wanting to spawn.

Unpleasant yet compelling.

And sloppily delicious.
