I’ve had some rather fantastic food in my time, but there are some meals that I think I’ll remember to the end of my days. I’ll just stick with the most memorable.
My Dad’s boxing day Beef – This is something that we have every year. As a family, only the single ones tend to be at my Dad’s on Christmas Day, all those in relationships spend the day alone, but we’re always together on Boxing Day. This is when my Dad does the dish of the year, and cooks a massive amount of Beef. This is served with duck fat roasties, broccoli, Brussels (tradition, innit?), stuffing, carrot & swede mash, and his magnificent parsnips and carrots. The parsnips are coated in honey, and roasted, making them sticky, and absolutely fantastic, and the carrots are cut into julienne style, before being brushed with wholegrain mustard, and left to cook in the juice of the meat. This is always the part of Christmas I look forward to most now (lolfatty), as it’s the part where there’s never a let down, due to shitty gifts, or anything like that.

My Mum’s Banoffee pie – I’ve only had this once in the 15 years since she died, and while it was great, it just wasn’t as good as the one she used to make (sorry Dad). The cream was magnificent and light, the biscuit base just the right level of moisture without being too sticky, and the fact that it had chunks of Mars bar in it just tops it off beautifully. One day, I may even try my hand at it. Note to self: Steal Mum’s recipe book back off Joanne.

Swordfish – I’ve only ever eaten this once, and it was at a seafront restaurant in Lanzarote. €10.50, and it is possibly the best fish I’ve ever eaten, the only ones that even come close are the seafood chowder I had in Kenmare, and the scallops I had last week. The swordfish was cooked to perfection, the taste was sublime, the sauce was perfect, there was only one problem I had with it, and that’s the fact I only got to have it once.

The Colossus - This is it. It’s a 1lb burger, made from top quality beef. It’s absolutely magnificent, but a challenge to eat. I’m aware that mixed grills are bigger, but the difficulty lies in the fact that there is no texture but MEAT in this. If you ever find yourself in Glasgow, make your way to Ashton Lane, and go to Ketchup. You won’t regret it.

As for the worst food, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything quite as unpleasant as Liver. Fucking horrible.

People who hate liver hate life.

Fuck munchy boxes.
They always pad it out by filling it with salad. Know why? It's cheap and it takes up room that would be better occupied by kebab meat, as well as making you feel like you're making a nod to being 'healthy' (like a supersize McD's with DIET coke).
