    Kommune - anyone been?

    It's really good that we have an upmarket food hall in the splendid Castle House, former home of the B&C Co-op. See https://wp.me/p5wFIX-19U
  2. I don't think anyone has posted a link to this video which looks at both sides of the story https://youtu.be/c5q8uMouXRg
  3. I certainly think Tony got carried away and then found he was in too deep to backtrack. The serious criticism needs to be directed at Dan Walker who failed to carry out basic journalistic checks but rushed to tweet. It has become clear that the BBC knew early on that Tony's story was a load of baloney but kept silent, thus deceiving viewers and licence payers. The Star and Yorkshire Post also knew but kept a conspiracy of silence. The sad fact is the story could have been checked and found wanting by someone with only one day's experience in journalism! They just had to read David Harvey's book.
  4. There are serious contradictions in official accounts of the time of the Mi Amigo cash and the subsequent recollections of Tony Foulds, as here https://wp.me/p5wFIX-19H

    Juke and Loe - Ecclesall Road

    I have only just seen this and stopped writing reviews for The Star in 2014 but never took backhanders and it was surprising how many places did not 'clock' me. Derby Tup has posted some bilge in the past and this is some more, I am afraid. You are welcome to read me at that excellent blog www.dawesindoors.wordpress.com
  6. The price of pork hocks (aka ham hocks or shanks) is such a steal, considering how much you can do with them. Here's my m.o. https://wp.me/p5wFIX-17P Who has any other suggestions?

    End of an era at Baldwins Omega

    This probably needs a new topic but happy to report that the Omega lives on at the Abbeydale Sports Club https://wp.me/p5wFIX-16U

    Fish and Chips in Sheffield thread

    I can't find a separate thread on Sheffield fishcakes which is odd for a Sheffield forum. Seems the fishcake has gone upmarket at the Stag's Head on Psalter Lane. It comes with watercress and a poached egg, as here https://wp.me/p5wFIX-129 Manager swears by the fishcakes at Tony's of Mosborough, though. And they still do a fishcake buttie.

    Celeriac -what's your favourite way of cooking it?

    If you are making hummus with tinned chickpeas there is no cooking involved!

    Celeriac -what's your favourite way of cooking it?

    Oh well! The only other thing I can suggest is that it is processed for too long. Or go easy on the olive oil and stir it in afterwards.

    Wher to buy vine leaves

    My first port of call would be Ozmen on London Road or its bigger store off John Street, Anouska. Or try the Greek cafe chum deli on Sharrow Vale Road.

    Celeriac -what's your favourite way of cooking it?

    It is actually cheaper to make your own hummus but start with a tin of chickpeas, about 60p, and a jar of tahini. A good basic recipe is one tin (reserve the water) with a couple of tablespoons of tahini, slug of olive oil, garlic clove, salt and lemon juice. Whizz, adding bits here and there, including the chickpea water, and you'll soon get there, much better and cheaper than shop bought. Save those dried chickpeas for falafel. Soak them overnight then whiz with chickpea flour, garlic and parsley before forming them into little balls. They keep their shape better than when using tinned chickpeas.

    Simpkins sweets

    Simpkins still exists in Hillsborough and you can still buy its travel sweets at chemists.
