    Cheers, and nice one. That's one of my favs, as is crispy Peking duck with pancakes, but not totally 'cremated', like you get in many (non-authentic) Chinese restaurants! I also love a traditional Duck a l'orange

    As for veal, we get ours from a butcher in Chester market, which comes from a local farm. It's rosé veal, of course, as shown in the following link, not the cruel shit: https://alternativemeats.co.uk/catal...e-veal/id/182/

    We should really eat more of it, as it's low-fat, healthy and very tasty - plus ethically and environmentally friendly! Another meat we eat a lot of in Tuscany is goat. A good goat stew is *phenomenal* and far tastier than any beef one.

    Personally i use the cornstarch, egg white and rice vinegar method in water rather than oil and have been doing so for years.
    I tend to eat a lot of stir fry, Tom Yum etc etc and it really does make the difference for a little time spent. The pork, chicken or beef will be so much more juicy and tender.
    I had Fajitas tonight using that method which made me think of mentioning it.
    If you haven’t tried it, then do!
    Theres plenty on t’web about it.
    Enjoy.
    That’s useful stuff. Wasn’t really aware of it but had got part of the way there by accident. I always used to coat chicken pieces in egg and cornflour, then deep-fry, before adding to stir fries

    Yeah, defo a top tip there, Jon

    With oriental food recipes, Del marinates chicken first in Shaoxing rice wine (which we get from the Chinese supermarket) and soy sauce (just for seasoning instead of salt, as it adds more flavour), fresh garlic and ginger, before she 'velvets' the meat and fries it, depending on the recipe she's making, and any excess marinade is put into the sauce being served with the meat

    **I’ve studied deeply in the philosophies and religions, but cheerfulness kept breaking through**

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    Oh no, she's not into that mind-numbing shee-ite, is she?

    "Forced to watch", though... What did she do, hold a gun to your head?

    Homemade burgers/chips rock....
