Jay Rayner likes pig. An awful lot. And why not. Eating a lot of of certainly features in his slim but entertaining The Ten (Food ) Commandments.
Having enjoyed watching his recentish Kitchen Cabinet recording on Comer Pier I thought it only proper to follow up on his somewhat belated Ten Commandments tour. This meant a trip to that fine city of Norwich by train as I needed a couple of pints. And that wasn't as easy as it sounds. Seems most places now only serve that grapefruitish "craft" ale that is produced in the most unartisan silos by some fake hipster types who are rubbing their manicured hands with glee and have probably a massive hand in the gin bonanza too. I went some way to just find a pint (or two) of bitter. You know, that brown stuff that tastes like, well, um, eerr beer.
Given the occasion some pig was called for in the way of this black pudding and pulled pork hash. With some actual beer.
That hanger is our municipal library
The Raynster though was booked for a rather more gentile joint as below.
I do like the cut of Rayner's quite large jib and he certainly can hold a crowd. Which in the main was 20 years older than me and I'm an old bugger. As he might well say: go and see him. You must.
Cameron, ah, a slide of him getting outside of some pork was well used, as opposed to one of him getting inside......
