    Ah, okies, alles klar!

    If you weren't using the Reggiano DOP version of Parmesan before, then I'm not surprised you can tell the difference. We wouldn't use anything else.

    Wee tip: a good way of judging the best Parmesan cheese is find the stuff that looks the most 'knobbly' and irregularly shaped. If it looks too smooth/refined, 'creamy white' in colour, and cut into a nice sharp triangle, the cheese has been more mass-produced, and is probably younger.

    The rougher looking, darker, more yellowy coloured stuff is best, rather like that shown on this link: https://vinepair.com/articles/parmes...-grana-padano/

    The differences between the various types of Parmesan are also explained there.

    Tried the Moo Bloo steak and Stilton pie last night - very nice it was too, thanks for the tip-off Justin.

    Todays brunch.
    Freshly laid poached egg, home made bread, black pudding, asparagus wrapped in smoked bacon with a potato, carrot, onion and strong cheddar rosti.
    Tasty!

    Looks great, Jon, and nicely cooked/presented, with the poached egg just how I like them!

    Curry for me tonight (had some pasta for lunch). Tomorrow my dad's coming round for his Sunday lunch, so we'll be having a nice roast, probably chicken this time, with various types of veg and potatoes, plus pud to follow - oh, and plenty of vino!
