|I know these are traditional classics in English culture... but as an ignorant #American, I can't imagine dishing my way through a fruit cake with bits of meat in it. I imagine it'd be like Rachel Greene's trifle and Shepards pie hybrid. But as much as I would not make it myself, I'd maybe try a bit irl since it's popular.
Bizarre factor: Ox tongue
|No there's no real hedgehog used. It's just stewed apples topped with icing and almond slices. These would be a nice children's activity maybe? It's actually a pretty safe dish, and an elevated way to present a fruit salad.
Bizarre factor: It just reminds me of those pointless retro-style recipes.
|This is another dish with emphasis on presentation. It consists of gelatinized chocolate and vanilla cream into an egg-shaped form via real egg shells.
Bizarre factor: It's just too much work to be using real eggshells for this And idk who'd want to take a bite of a thing of cream like that.
|Ice cream is such a satisfying process to watch - mixing sugar and cream all in a cold chamber until it stiffens. But what she uses as flavoring... Britain is u okay? I don't know if this is normal but y'all couldn't use normal fruit or basic vanilla beans back in the day? I'm over it.
Bizarre factor: I actually love cuc*mber in other instances but I think children would be crying if they were served this for dessert.
|She had a nice set going on with spices, nuts, and veggies. She also deboned the whole thing so that must've taken her some time. But what did she decide to decorate it with? UhhHhhh...
Bizarre factor: It's supposed to be a COLD dish? And she's gonna serve it smothered in gelatinized M*YONNAISE? The blasphemy. Mrs. Crocombe must be trying to compete with Hottie's iconic microwaved chicken for Flavor Flav. Good luck serving those guests u speak of.
Would y'all try any of these?
