    No, actually these dishes are quite different from anything you would get in India or its neighbours - so Balti has a sauce that is unique to that dish and there is no similar dish anywhere else...! :)

    Britain's Multiculturalism has seen many innovations!

    But I'm not trying to stereotype England as a place where there is no good food - that was your responsibilty!! ;)

    I would've gone with the dental hygeine stereotype before food...

    Hey, when I was there, I had some pretty good sandwiches and quiche!

    (...neither of which are native to Great Britain... go figure :D )

    Getting back to cheese... I'll take some delicious casero or panela (two Mexican cheese varieties) over Kraft American Cheese Singles any day of the week. You can blame my parents for introducing me to real cheeses like these, and Swiss, Feta, Mozarella...

    ...:scowl:... I think I tasted vomit when I said "Kraft"...

    :hurl:

    Sandwich? Not native to Great Britain?

    It's English - name derived from John Montagu, Fourth Earl of Sandwich, who is credited with its "invention". Sandwich is a town in Kent.

    You missed my joke, Bruce. I wasn't a good joke, but a joke none the less.


    Lymeswold production was ceased in 1992(I checked wikipedia after you first posted about lymeswold). Therefore, as it is no longer made or consumed(unless there is some 14 year old vintage, which I doubt in this case). I was comparing it to the dead language of latin.

    Lymewold is to cheese as Latin is to language.


    The joke is even worse after explaining it. :(
     

  8. yep ;)
     
  9. Man, I'd pay anything to be the Earl of Sandwich. That is the coolest title ever.

    That doesn't sound so prestigeous considering your main product is fried chicken.

    I was just a lowly sandwhich artist back when I worked at Subway......your majesty...

    The sad part is I really agree with Bruce on most counts.

    Like tube amps: Fender and Marshall. American, and British. They decend from one or the other, no matter where they're made.

    I need a fridge dedicated to cheese. Unfortunately, there ain't enough room with all the beer, and cheese hardly gets priority on a college campus.

    I started working there when they came out with those sandwiches deals about 6 years ago. That was my only duty, making those new confangled sandwiches.

    You can also tell I'm a king because I don't have $#!+ all over me.

    God bless the Danish! I had some delicious Havarti cheese last night. It says "Product Of Denmark" right on the label.
    How do you say "Yummy" in Danish?

    Damn, I would have wrapped up the cheese and wished him fun at his klan rally.

    Yes, the name is native to England, but the product has existed for far longer.

    At least, variations have...

    ...but I'm still right about quiche! :p

    I'm sure there can be a pun hidden in there somewhere.....something about sliced cheese and cutting maybe?
