Ok...dude...I FAIL to believe that! You cook seafood..which is WAY harder than anything my slacker ass cooks. I've got a 10 minute bread recipe that takes 4 ingredients, Flour, yeast, salt and water. It's the one I used for the bread bowls. If I can make it...you can make it.

gorgeous kippers. i love many things smoked, including beer (though it's not actually 'smoked'. the barley being dried over a flame which imparts a smokey flavour).

am spending my hols in medieval Rothenburg (Germany) at the moment and eating quite a bit of smoked air-dried sausages from a nearby butcher shop. absolutely divine.

this time last year i enjoyed various smoked fish in northern Germany.
