Steptoe "cuisene"

Postby Dirty Old Yank » Wed Mar 23, 2011 8:31 pm

Any favorite (or least favorite if you've ever actually ate them) meals from the series that come to mind? floor sweepings? dripping with fag ash? baked pigeon? abattoir rejects? festering old tea bags? ever had something far worse than Galton and Simpson ever imagined? GO on, fess up.

haven't seen that episode yet and now i'm not sure i want to. ta for the visual, gah! the bar none most disturbing "meal" i've ever had was at a neighbours small 'dinner party'. indescribably nasty, one canape and i ran to the loo to spit it out and gargle as quickly as possible any disinfectant in sight that looked strong enough to kill whatever refuse i'd just eaten. return to the table and try to smile politely, "No thanks, not hungry really." it may read like a comedy sketch but i wasn't laughing, it actually happened. grim

I am apparently one of those who has strange concoctions in sandwiches (though they make sense to me), like a "Fools gold" sandwich - which is a piece of a baguette sliced down the middle, with Jam one one side, Peanut Butter on the other and piping hot crispy bacon in the middle... mmm they are delicious.

My other is fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Scrummy.

As for Steptoe quisine, however you spell it, I agree with Harold when it comes to a good cup of tea, the milk ALWAYS goes in last (how do you know how much milk you need until you see how string you've brewed the tea????).

Though if ever I was faced with the choice between a tin of snails or asparagus tips like they were, I think I'd just starve instead!!

The "Fools Gold" also comes from the Elvis Presley cookbook!

Peanut butter and bananna are gorgeous - just lightly toast the bread, fill one side with peanut butter, one with mashed banana, press them together then slowly shallow fry the sandwich in butter (if you dont toast it first you end up with mush) then eat it hot with a knife and fork.. 2500 calories in each one!!! Delish!!

I've neevr seen tinned escargot but maybe Harold was feeling posh, wanted to impress a high classed bird with asparagus and snails.. it doesn't seem like something the Steptoes would usually eat.. but then, Albert did have a packet of chocolate buscuits with him too! :)

Fools Gold seems a good way to commit suicide by cholesterol !!!

How about a Steptoe Diner Party, all of the various things you have mentioned as appetisers and then the Main Course Steak and Kidney Pudding with the pastry crimped by a pair of false teeth !

That's a great idea Bob.

My choice of starter would be a fried egg sandwich - Albert saysd the prime minister might like one, so if it's good enough for a PM it's good enough for me! (And they are lovely).

And we could wash it down with either a drink from the horse's bucket or a jug of bitter from The Skinners Arms.

Phil,
The Peanut butter/banana toastie sounds disgusting though i do like peanut butter on toast! a great sarnie i like is peanut butter/strawberry jam combo,bloody lovely!
i'm also a fan of jacob's crackers with butter and peanut butter in a 2 cracker sandwich,you need a drink nearby though as the mix of cracker & sun pat is very dry...maybe we ought to try Harolds suggestion in "Upstairs downstairs"- "Peanut butter & pickle"

i dion't think i could eat a fried egg that was scooped up off the floor either Archie! :lol: :lol:

before or after Albert's false teeth? ew.
anyone ever have a Twinkie deep fried like chips?
couldn't believe it was true, thought it was some kind of culinary myth, but apparently some folks think they're tasty. i'm imagining biting into a cube of lard, couldn't be much worse. here's one i haven't tried but might come in handy, if you ever run out of milk and sugar, simply scrape the filling from Oreo biscuits and dump it in your coffee. stir and presto! cappuccino!

Surprised no one has mentioned curried ghoulies yet.
Or heavily spiked crimbo punch served from a po.

That would be a great challenge, perhaps I should start a receipe page. Everything would have to be edible, but just look awful.
