    I was on the Weskuus on a project for 8 months...the novelty of freshly caught crayfish quickly wore off...

    Give me a pint of lager and piece of Kudu Biltong and I am happy...

    If you ever want top kudu Billies...Lood se Slaghuis in Phalaborwa. I am actually going to ask my folks to send me some....costs about R150 p/kg. I bought some the other day in Fourways...R260 p/kg ....

    Lekker! It's not something well liked but I occasionally get the urge for bokkems too. When checking kreef traps we'd often leave the kreef in the trap to attract octopus. Can't beat a chilled salad with little bits of home pickled ockie in olive oil and lemon juice with oregano and thyme. Cold roast fennel on the side with aioli dressing - Drooollllll......

    Still beats me what people are prepared to pay for bait.

    Boots Chemist in the UK used to make a brilliant 'Best Bitter' just-add-water type kit..was wonderful stuff but I also had one lot go 'Bang' on me - in my flat. Luckily I had no Swambo the so I left home until the sticky stuff (dried ale..) congealed on the floor so I would'nt get my shoes dirty...

    Stop all this talk about mulled ales, kreef and the like before the rest of us have had a decent meal and grog...most unfair!

    Now is the time to put together a great winter cook up. Summer is too hot in SA for the traditional Christmas dinner so we used to do a Midmas dinner each year. Basically an excuse to pig out on game pies, roasts, turkey, hams, curries, gluhwein, rich soups and stews and all the other stuff normally eaten across the other side of the tracks over Christmas.

    We'd nominate a place and everyone would roll up with something they'd done so it was a huge blow out. Father Midmas would rock up at some stage and all gifts went into a grab bag with earlier secret nomination of recipients handed randomly to the intended giver. Price was limited to under ten rand so a little inventiveness was in order. I can see some great flies being tied as gifts if you folks can arrange one in time while it's still cold in SA.

    Off to the kangene tomorrow so unable to play along but it's one of the things I stopped doing for some reason and miss every year as the cold season kicks in. Reckon Nicholas could come up with some great goodies.

    Great Stuff, chefs use to organise Xmas bash in the summer as we all had to work at Xmas,so we use to have our staff parties in June, a good dish is Turducken or Russian doll roast (many names for it) but heres a great story from the daily mail http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...as-dinner.html check out the picture of all the birds that go into this dish,this dish goes back four hundred years and has recently made a come back,another great midmas dish is Roast goose, with roasted duck fat potatoes. A lot of hotels run a Xmas in July dinner but unfortunately its a very poor gimmick.

    Dave: Check PMs.

    Duck grease roast potatoes - Now yer talkin'! No reason the Midmas thing can't be done. It's a good excuse to hit the richer hot dishes we avoid when it's 34 deg C outside.

    The game pie lust has now descended on one. Bugger!

    Will do, game pie is a stern favourite of mine and gets made very often.

    Myself and a few other business unsophisticats around August enjoy a Mid-Winter traditional English Christmas dinner. No, not Lamb Korma or Chicken Tikka, but as much bird fat, bread sauce and roast tatties that we can endure.
    A Forum one wouldn't be a bad idea down on the Vaal, and non-Engels could bring their own special Christmas/other festival food along? And wives/girl-boyfriends/family of course?

    Maybe we could fly Nick up to judge the cook-off, with the winner having to have a penalty shoot-out with Floyd and a bottle of Dimple Haig?
