Best potato "style", right?
so often disappointing though
never had dauphinoise. didn't even realise it was popular. also never heard fondant before, i was under the imperssion that croquettes were as fancy as you could get.
You need to watch at least one episode of MasterChef. Someone ALWAYS makes them. I still don't really know what they are, mind.
definitely seen SOME masterchef but mustn't have been too much attention.
before i googled my first thought was 'is that what they call it when they put mash through a piping bag?'
then they pull out a circular ring and chop the middle out to make it look neat and tidy. Something like that.
never had gratin either. that's four posh potato types i've never had. what's the point when they're never gonna live up to proper chips
Too black, too strong
These alley trippers are still frontin' on us
Show 'em that we can do this
'Cause we always knew this, ha ha
Bass! How low can you go?
Death row, what a brother know
Once again, back is the incredible
rhyme animal, the incredible
D, Public Enemy number one
"Five-O" said, "Freeze!" and I got numb
Can I tell 'em that I really never had a gun?
But it's the wax that the Terminator X spun
Now they got me in a cell
'Cause my records, they sell
'Cause a brother like me said, Well
Farrakhan's a prophet and I think you ought to listen to
What he can say to you" What you ought to do
Is follow for now, power of the people, say,
"Make a miracle, D, pump the lyrical"
Black is back, all in, We're gonna win
Check it out
Yeah, y'all, c'mon
Here we go again
Turn it up! Bring the dauphinoise!
Turn it up! Bring the dauphinoise!
Hey yo, Chuck, they're sayin' we too black, man
Yo, I don't understand what they're saying
But little do they know they can get a smack for that, man
Never badder than bad 'cause the brother is madder than mad
At the fact that's corrupt like a senator
Soul on a roll, but you treat it like soap on a rope
'Cause the beats in the lines are so dope
Listen for lessons I'm saying inside music
That the critics are all blasting me for
They'll never care for the brothers and sisters
Now across the country has us up for the war
We got to demonstrate, come on now
They're gonna have to wait 'til we get it right
Radio stations, I question their blackness
They call themselves black, but we'll see if they'll play this
Hey yo, Chuck, they're illin', we chillin'
Yo, PE in the house, top billing
Yo, Chuck, show 'em what you can do, boy
Get from in front of me, the crowd runs to me
My DJ is warm, he's X, I call him Norm, y'know
He can cut a record from side to side
So what, the ride, the glide should be much safer than a suicide
Soul control, beat is the father of your rock'n'roll
Music for whatcha, for whichin', you call a band, man
Makin' a music, abuse it, but you can't do it, y'know
You call 'em demos
But we ride limos, too
Whatcha gonna do? Rap is not afraid of you
Beat is for Sonny Bono
Beat is for Yoko Ono
Run-DMC first said a DJ could be a band
Stand on its own feet, get you out your seat
Beat is for Eric B. and LL, as well, hell
Wax is for Anthrax, still it can rock bells
Ever forever, universal, it will sell
Time for me to exit, Terminator X it
Yo, they should know by now that they can't stop this [?]
Word up, better keep tellin' me to turn it down
But yo, Flavor Flav ain't going out like that
Come on, now
From coast to coast, so used to being like a comatose
Stand, my man, the beat's the same with a boast toast
Rock with some pizzazz, it will last. Why you ask?
Roll with the rock stars, still never get accepted as
We got to plead the Fifth, you can investigate
Don't need to wait, get the record straight
Hey, posse in effect, got Flavor, Terminator
X to sign checks, play to get paid
You got to check it out down on the avenue
A magazine or two is dissing me and dissing you
Yeah, I'm telling you...
Hey yo, Griff, [?] the S1W
We got to handle this
We ain't goin' out like that
Yo man, straight up on the Columbo tip
We can do this, like Brutus
'Cause we always knew this
You know what I'm sayin'
There's just one thing that puzzles me, my brother
What's wrong with all these people around here, man...
'crushed' roast potatoes
LET THEM FORM A CRISPY SKIN YOU TWATS
not chips. fwiw
can be really fucking good. still not the best.
too difficult to spell for one thing
They're always getting it wrong on Masterchef. Also turmeric.
Well that goes back to my moan about people being unable to pronounce 'amateur'.
potatoes are just The Best
fondant's are bullshit
So sick of this fucking place
and they take fucking loads of effort too.
make your mind up, mate.
I have and they are
Theo has fucking nailed it here
it's not even the best crisp
(though I do like Pringles)
Let's have the c_c_b best potato crisp, please.
there was a real person called Chris Prater. He was a screenprinter rather an a rater of crisps though
its like some maize or something
And I do love a salted Tortilla so will happily try a tube of that flavour if I ever see one.
neither are the normal Pringles
I had the nacho cheese tortilla ones. could have probably eaten the entire tube in one sitting tbh, though not much different from regular ones, just more "grain" or something
This has shaken the pillars of the world!
where on earth were you then?
in a grotty basement, surrounded by empty tubes of Pringles, while an almost naked Balonz snored on his back in the corner.
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that all airline food aspires to the condition of potato dauphinoise"
are you now paradying yourself?
don't think I've ever had Dauphinoise on a plane
tbh I've not been on many flights where I've been served a full meal
"This was why, when the BA trolley dolly came back after take-off and offered me hors d'oeuvres, I naturally said, "Yes." Yes to scary roundels of white bread, topped with scary roundels of cream cheese, scattered with a few limp chives; yes to the cutlery wrapped in its linen winding sheet; and yes to the main course of pork, which turned out to be greyish nodules, accompanied by peas, carrots and . . . yes! Potato dauphinoise."
when flying long-haul, always request the Asian vegetarian meal. They're always quite nice.
the vegetarian one from a new plane we boarded at Kabul was the most interesting
all you need.
basically roasted some potatoes, and a bulb of garlic at the same time
squeezed all the garlic in with some mayo
served the roast potatoes with garlic mayo and some fackin sriracha on top
bravas is a very broad church tho, i found out in spain
They have a mix of both in Jamon Jamon and I thought they call it something different.
Anyway, I hadn't realised that was Spanish or basically the same in Spanish. I guess it's a Romance language term.
Best potato based toy?
Mr Potato Head
Battery made from potato
Same sort of gig, just cooked in stock with a bit of butter.
Probably the only instance of the lower fat equivalent being superior but... there we have it.
Obviously restaurant-quality dauphinoise are excellent but... most people who try it at home fuck them up. Morons.
ie roasting a joint of lamb on top of sliced potatoes. It's nice-ish but fatty as all hell, especially once it's stopped being piping hot.
YOU COCKING FUCKING WEBSITE!
Come On, Feel The Dauphinoise
