Re: The Message of Awe Thread

Yeah, I was born in '68 (50 this year) so grew up in that period. And yes I don't think younger people have been exposed to those sort of foods so much, if at all, and they are lucky.

Re: Books

The next book I'll be after for my commute is one about Albert Pierrepoint, saw something on TV a while back about him. He was Britain's Official Executioner for 25 years until the 1950s. Quite interested in all that kind of stuff. I also really like books about people's time in prison e.g. The Dam...

The jelly is integral to the taste of a pork pie. Scraping it off is equivalent to peeling a potato, where the skin is the best part.

Re: The Message of Awe Thread

I don't think I've ever had kidney. Not sure which decade you grew up in, but it seems to be a common t...
