    You could call it the "Junk versus the health food" thread. I am still recovering form the bacon pictures. :lol: :sick: It's beyond me how people can eat that. I mean a little piece here and there is ok, but such amount?

    They do, but times are changing. There is a trend away from fatty stuff among young people. And Germans are not the fattest people in Europe anyway, the Brits are. ;)

    Seriously, for me it's a "head problem". If I know something is not healthy, I cannot enjoy it. When I was younger I was much concerned about my weight, but now its health as such.

    Avocado salad on foccacia with olive tapenade and a balsamic vinegar reduction

    [​IMG]
    Click through for a larger picture.

    Had this at a little cafe in Kangaroo Valley. Spanish onion, panfried mushroom, tomato both sundried and fresh, rocket, alfalfa sprouts, mixed lettuce, scallion, and the freshest, softest avocado and fetta. Piled on a warm foccacia, which was spread with just a bit of slightly creamy, thinly diced tomato. The tapenade is off to the side of the plate, and the vinegar reduction is drizzled around the edges.

    Absolute heaven :)

    Perfect for non-meat eaters with a "traditional" touch: Whale sushi

    Whale isn't a meat? :confused:

    Isn't it sashimi? I thought sushi was sashimi (raw fish) + rice? I loooovvveee sashimi.

    No, I have not tried (and no intention to do). In Japan, most people don't like it (anymore). It's very fatty, people say it "stinks", and it has a very peculiar taste. There are only a very few sushi restaurants that still serve whale meat. In 20 years in Japan I have never seen one.

    Personally I'm against whale meat... considering they're already an endangered species, you'd have to be pretty ignorant and stubborn to keep fishing them and supporting the whaling industry by eating them. No offense.

    But then again, I don't consider "whale meat" as being vegetarian...wtf...? I know different people have different views on what is "vegetarian", eg. some still eat fish and poultry. Personally I am a vegetarian but i don't eat ANY meats...

    Anyways, this thread bloody delivers... what happened to the old one? I love looking at this thread just before meal times! :thumbup:

    That thing was awesome. Too bad you didn't get a photo of it before we attacked it, because it was really stylishly arranged.

    Not all whale species are endangered. There are an abundance of Minke whales around and even humpbacks were recently taken off the endangered list. In fact, there are a lot of fish and crustacean species which are significantly more endangered, yet nobody has any qualms about eating them. Sustainable whaling is better for the environment than the overfishing we are seeing at the moment.

    That said, the whale meat I tried once was really gross... and I normally love seafood.

    Never knew you had a plum tree in your backyard? You must have a big backyard :p Looks like some nice plums, too.

    Here's what I just ate - Chicken with Thai style basil, coriander chilli marinade with fresh steamed veggies.

    (ease off about the grandma floral plates, I just use what's available, they do the job :p)

    Just the thought of eating such a beautiful majestic creature is enough to turn me right off it. It even looks aweful on a plate also.
