Well, he has always cooked in the kitchen with me..
He loves food, he watches the food channel like no ones business, he makes things…
I have tried to teach him that when you make food to use the best ingredients.
Also using what is seasonal and local rather than imported..
You know, support Kiwi???
I know, I know, I know, I am a coffee snob but I am not been one of those pretentious foodie wankers in this case..
No, I do not mean I will only eat or use food made by the monks in the moonlight or other rubbish…
For example, if I have a piece of cheesecake, which isn’t often, I WANT the best tasting cheesecake possible, to make the most of having it.
Often I end up making these treats as I am fussy, and as I don’t have it often and know the calories etc in it, when I do have it, I want it to be primo…
So I will go “yep, that was worth a 2 hour run!!”
I suppose, it is getting the best for your calories treat wise and food wise generally.
Am I making sense or digging a bigger hole?
I mean why have a McDonald’s burger when you could have a gorgeous steak burger (at home or elsewhere), with homemade relish, fresh buns and prime meat!!
Why have a manky garage sandwich when you can have a primo sandwich elsewhere?
Or why not have fruit and veg from the markets if they taste better?
They are usually cheaper too!!
Anyway, I digress way off track!!
So I teach the fussy pants this….
Now it has seriously bitten me in the bum in recent years…and I was reminded of this again tonight.
I used to make, when the kids were little, the bog standard spag bolg...
I liked it, it was rich, meaty and great if you were short of $$$$ and went a long way:)
However I taught Mr Fussy to make the proper Bolognese ragu and since then….no MORE spag bog….
Its Bolognese ragu all the way:)…
Mr Fussy will merely pick at the old standard if I dare to make it:)
I have managed to make it without pancetta fat so far but God help me if Mr Fussy reads the recipe!!!
Yes, it will be RUN TONTO RUN!!
