  1. The best meal I’ve eaten so far, was the one that failed me my home economics exam at school. Cheap noodles (not too much juice, just enough for the plate), 2 x pork chops (grilled, and oh-so crispy) and 2 x fried eggs over easy.

    I cooked it. Teacher frowned. I sat in stony silence and ate it, licking the plate clean afterwards. I’ve always eaten noodles, ever since I was a little white boy growing up in London in the late 70’s, so they’ve always been a part of my life. I think the Pork Chops & Eggs were me, in a raw state, reaching for more defined tastes… the Umami meatiness of Pork and the rubbery fried eggs.. If I were on death row, I’d make three subtle change to that meal – Upgrade my pork chop to belly pork (more fat = more flavour). Upgrade my noodles to Udon and finally upgrade my egg’s to poached in the noodle nest at the 2 minute mark (also possibly adding some spring onions and chilli peppers). I am now, ravishingly hungry!
