    Cool. No, not at all. You simply enjoy it as it is, maybe with a nice beer or a light and fruity red wine?

    There seems to be a distinct lack of green in this thread - fresh vegetables are clearly a bit of a modern fad not enjoyed by crusty old audiophiles

    Not so. We have at least four or five fresh vegetables with our meals. Most of them are green, but obviously the carrots and sweetcorn are not.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Lol - with certain exceptions I was thinking the same, and noting the distinct lack of GREENS in evidence, which I personally love. The likes of fresh green beans, savoy cabbage, peas, asparagus, spinach and broccoli, cooked properly, are amongst my favourite things to eat!

    Also, I don't consider it obligatory to have a pile of potatoes on my plate (or some other form of starch), in order to feel satisfied, or for that matter believe that a 'proper meal' consists strictly of 'meat and two veg'...

    For me, that's one of the main differences between traditional British cuisine and the Mediterranean one: the latter's lack of a need to 'bulk out' meals, so that they're designed simply to fill you up, rather than be a 'taste sensation' you genuinely look forward to eating with some gusto.

    The meals I enjoy, for example, are the highlights of my day! I would be a very unhappy bunny indeed, if all I had to look forward to every day was some bland ready meal, oven chips or a takeaway. However, it's heartening to see folks here cooking genuinely nice food from scratch!

    What I'm referring to goes back to some people simply seeing food as a form 'sustenance'. In that respect therefore, do you LIVE to eat, or merely eat to LIVE? There's a fundamental difference between both. Something for folks to think about, perhaps...?

    Marco.
