This is a question Yum!

Tell us / show us / send us the best thing you've ever cooked or had cooked for you. Even if it is a £10 burger.

Or knock yourself out and tell us knock-knock jokes. Just make them funny and about sheds

The continuation of Airman Gabber's Artery clogging experiments... The KFC Doubledown.
Before going to America in 2011 I'd heard of the legendary KFC 'Bunless Burger' where they use chicken instead of bread. After searching through Las Vegas & Orlando to no avail we finally went into a KFC in New York and asked where we could get a double-down. "Oh you can get them at all KFC's. We just don't advertise it for health reasons."

"We'll take 2!"

So this is how it looks in the Advert.

This is how it was presented to us. Although visually it was a disappointment when tasted was as good as anticipated, if not better. If we'd not been on the last day of our holiday we'd have gone back for another one

Some Months later I had a drunken pop at recreating it. Not having access to the Colonels (ahem) special sauce I had to improvise.


I punched my arteries in the tits when I ate this baby.

They have now gone on to make the Doubledown Zinger burger so a repeat journey across the atlantic is a must. Bastards still don't serve them in the UK though.

You know the way
we don't have an word for the pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others so we had to steal a Germanic one Schadenfreude

There needs to be a word that describes the disappointment when you first see the disparity between the picture on the board and the sad limp thing in the polystyrene/cardboard/paper wrapper

Speaking of which
Many of this week's posts bring to mind the Czech word 'litost'.

Although in this case...
I would have needed a word to describe the disappointment when first seeing the disparity of the presented article versus the glee of the taste explosion when actually eating it.

We have a word for that borrowed from Chinese.

Down's is serious enough without doubling it.
I tried one too. A greasy delight which will no doubt contribute to my forthcoming heart attack.

i don't have the words to describe how wrong that looks

To be fair his recreation looks marginally less wrong than the real thing.

the recreation is better looking

That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my cooking.

I always assumed that the Double Down was a hoax, much like the McPie pictured earlier.
Live and learn, I suppose.

It started as a bit of a joke menu item.
But the reviews from the few stores that made it persuaded KFC to go national. I soo need to try the zinger variety they now do though.

Won't they make it in a domestic store, of you explain to them how it's done?
Judging by their recruitment adverts, all their staff are real chefs, so they should jump at the chance to exercise a little creativity.

I'm going to feck one of those down my neck the next time I see a Kfc.
if I survive I'll let you know how it was.

I did try it.
All the classic reactions, salivation while waiting at the counter, doubts arising while the grease vapour insinuated my cutaneous pores, scarfing it down leaning out of the truck in the parking lot, and finally saying to myself "Oh, what the fuck did I do that for?"
It came with fries. KFC makes the shittiest fries, pale, mealy and flaccid, but I scarfed them down anyway.

I've had one, too
When I was hungover one day and had wanted to try it. So good. For the first half, then a sense of dread came over me and I couldn't finish it.

Where did you go to get fries? KFC in the US doesn't have fries only those wanky wedges things. In fact, I think KFC is the only fast food joint that's better in the UK than the US. US McDonald's for instance, is so much better than the English one...

That must explain it.
Do they have that poisonous green sickly sweet coleslaw at KFC down there?
