Evening All

We've not had a foody thread for ages. So, we may have done this before but, lets have another go at posting stuff. I'll kick it off with Haslet from Lincolnshire. Used to have this in sandwiches and maybe with a salad sometimes. I've not had it for ages - its quite nice. Anyone else tried it?

Messed up - image on next post.

Oh yes! With bacon and cheese - a Potteries delicacy.

 

Perhaps topped off with a couple of hot buttered Pikelets for dessert.:thumbup:

In fact oatcakes with butter & golden syrup makes a nice dessert.

Them oatcakes from Stoke are truly moorish with bacon and cheese, in Wigan where I live they have butter pies which are disgusting, basically A potato  and melted butter pie, pure stodgy and great for your arteries

When I served on a Plymouth based ship, it was a mid morning ritual to buy a pasty from the NAAFI.  Ron Dewdney used to supply pasties to the dockyard from his Devonport shop, whereas his brother Ivor sold his wares in the city.....

Most people think that! You can buy it in tins on line. Mike eats it - it helps give him the strength to keep SS going.

OMG!!! LOBBY...

This is so cruel, next thing you know someone will mention wrights pies and tiko pasties...............

x

Not having a bowl of Lobby to hand, the picture I used was taken from the internet.  Personally I've never had Lobby with chips, just crusty bread.

There must be a thousand different recipes for Lobby, everybody seems to have their own.  Some people don't like chonnocks in there, whilst international jet setters like to add pearl barley or celery to the mix.

Kev John mentioned Wrights pies early in the topic and I guess most people in the Pots will at some point have feasted on a Wrights meat n tayter.  As for Tiko pasties, sadly no longer with us.:(

According to the locals, the Tiko pasty holds the record for being the first triangular food ever invented by man, however they were originally designed to be taken down the pit to be used by the colliers to measure angles.  It was much later when they were discovered to be edible.  When 3 Cooks took over Tiko, and altered the pasty recipe, they reverted back to only being suitable for their original purpose and sales dropped off as the pits closed.

Also, they were the worlds first "stealth" food.  Alledgedly one was taken back to the US by a USAF pilot and passed to engineers at Lockheed Martin, who then copied and refined the design for their F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter plane.

Everyone in the Potteries knows the above facts to be true, in fact Potteries pop star Robbie Williams was inspired to write a song, "Angles" (promo copies only, stock copies had the misspelled title "Angels").

I used to have a Saturday job in Graduate records (also known as Sundown, then Lotus records) in Piccadilly arcade in Hanley, and every Saturday the soulies would come and buy their "imports" from there,  then get a tiko pastie (from next door) and sit all along the arcade floor while Phil the record shop manager, and local celebrity, would play the latest tunes that were being played by the likes of a couple of young Djs Colin Curtis and Keith Minshull, regular customers at the time.........

p,s  You have to be of a certain age to remember the above!

p,p,s Everything Tiberius says above is absolutely true. (Chips and Lobby....NEVER!)

Lots of p's and essess's.  There is a  small supermarket in our next village, with a large bona fida Wrights Pies sticker in the window, I went in to buy one (couldn't believe my luck) and it was a home made pie so far removed from a Wrights Pie, they should be arrested for Identity Fraud.

Do you think at some point we could have an in depth discussion about the filling for Toasties please.........the cause of many a heated debate in this household!

Looks like tattie ash to me.

Ash, in my locality, is different to Lobby, but in both cases they would've originally been made with left overs.  Ashed meat, as I know it, is made from leftover leg of lamb and is eaten with mash in these parts.

In Liverpool they would call Lobby Scouse.

They called it Pot Mess in the navy.  All variations on a theme, leftovers thrown into a pan with spuds and veg so as not to waste anything.

When I was little we would call a sandwich a 'peacy' I don't know if that's a Stoke thing or just my family. I think it stems from a 'piece' of bread, so a sandwich would have two pieces hence a peacy........a bacon peacy

...............Ill get me coat

Can you all please stop talking about food. Stuck in hospital since Thursday morning.  Food should be fined under the trade description act. 

Steve 

Sorry to hear that Steve.  Nothing serious I hope.  Worst hospital food I ever had was in an Italian Naval Hospital in La Spezia.  Breakfast was a bowl of coffee and a rusk, lunch was pasta and dinner was pasta with either meat or fish in it.
