This is a question Terrible food

Back when I was a student, we had a "clear out the fridge" party. Everyone brought what they had left and the idea was to make a big meal out of it.

The stew/casserole/whatever was going surprisingly well until someone added the tin of mackerel in tomato sauce they'd been hoarding all year.

What's the worst thing you've ever cooked or eaten? Who's the worst cook you've encountered?

[and yes, we've asked this before, but way, way back before we had the fancy QOTW pages]

Egg's On The Heath
A friend and I, having found ourselves sharing a flat in London and surviving on really meagre jobs, took to dreaming up culinary dishes and making them. A favourite of mine (because it went down so badly with other people) was Egg's On The Heath. I unfortunately have no photo's of the said monstrosity but I assure you that it not only looked like shit but tasted rather less than desirable too. Here's how we made it;

Cress spread all over plate to represent the grass.
Big puddle of brown sauce to represent the murky pond.
Sardines placed on murky pond to represent dead fish.
Brocolli florets stood up on end to represent trees.
Two boiled and peeled egg's to represent the egg's on the heath. (tried drawing faces on them but failed)

We had to find a way to keep the brocolli florets stood up so we worked out the best way of doing this was to settle them in mashed potato. The natural colour of the mashed potato however, was obviously not suitable for the dish.

We resolved this issue by dying it with green food colouring.

Never again have I managed to dream up such a horrible tasting dish. Well, there was 'cummy egg' but I'm not brave enough to make it, let alone eat it.
