I was looking for some beer to take to a BYO curry house in Great Malvern the other night, and I tried a local boozer. Not only were they happy to oblige, but they had a special Tetrapak-style carton for me to use, with a special clip for the top that kept the important liquid within.
So, proper cask-conditioned draught beer to take away. No problem. Just stick it in the box.
You can keep your fibre optics and your touch sensitive screens. This is the most important technological advance I've heard of since man invented the spoon. Cheers.
Haven't had one for ages. It tasted really good. I used to eat lots of them, and have to admit to shoplifting a fair few of them in my youth, which is something I've never really owned up to before. So I'd like to apologise to the shopkeepers of Stony Stratford, which is where most of the thieving occurred. Sorry. Here's an old Yorkie advert, which I hope puts a a smile back on your faces.
Saw this menu last week. It looked great - about three thousand different types of oysters and lots of other good things too. It's a pity that the menu wasn't actually the menu at the pub in which I was sitting - they must have pinched it from somewhere on their travels and hung it up because it looked nice.
The '&' was the best bit.
In other food news, I was in a magazine today, talking about food. I like food.
Please welcome the first crop of the summer. There will be more to come, but I thought I'd dig a bit of it up yesterday to see what's happening. Of course, growing stuff is all very well, but then you have to eat it. So I need a recipe that involves beans, potatoes and beetroot. Please.
Today I am enjoying this email that I got from Ocado.
The picture's nice, the gag is sort of OK, but the thing I like about Ocado is that they do small stuff well. Their site works really well as a shopping site, and they keep tweaking all of the tiny details to make it better and more intuitive.
As for this email, it's just them telling me something small and new. It won't rock my world but it makes me feel another degree of warmth for them. And the idea that you can ask their drivers to cover up their dirty boots is excellent. It helps do all of those things that brands are supposed to do these days - be human, act responsibly and help keep my new carpet spotless.
