Pie and pudding report

’Tis Friday, but there was no battered fish on offer in the canteen today. Breaded fish and poached fish, but not battered. Very disappointing. So disappointing that I had to resort to the ‘vegetable and lamb pie’, the filling of which was rather thin. The canteen gravy contributed more lamb flavour than the pie. I think that is all that need be said on this poor offering. They could definitely learn from the Terra Nova in Cardiff.

The chocolate and strawberry sponge pudding was a little more satisfying. Suitably moist, but rather an all or nothing affair when it came to the strawberries — they would have been better chopped rather than whole.

All-in-all a bad day rounded off with a poor culinary offering and England losing their first match in the cricket world cup.

Plum pudding report

I forgot to report on the very tasty plum sponge pudding that was on offer in our work canteen yesterday, tho’ it was rather let down by exceptionally thin custard it came with. A bit more plum in the sponge would have been better too, but it was still well worth the 80p price (and much cheaper than the ‘healthy’ yoghurt option — it pays to be a glutton).

Pudding Report

Very disappointed with today’s pudding in the work canteen. It looked so nice: chocolate sponge with a sticky chocolatey-toffee topping, all in chocolate sauce – lots of chocolate sauce. Sadly, no amount of sauce could make up for the extreme dryness of the sponge. It totally spoilt my lunch break. A creme egg and a mug of hot chocolate this evening have almost made up for the disappointment.
