As I said, get thee a copy of the Classic Italian Cookbook by Marcella Hazan. Mine is dog eared and stained but I still return to it time after time.

EDIT Just checked and mine was published in 1987, so not sure if it is still in print !

Funny, but my mother had two microwave cookbooks and also a freezer cookbook, all bought in the mid to late '70s. I can remember my parents buying a quarter cow, or half a pig, all arriving nicely packaged for storing in the enormous coffin shaped deep freeze. Woe betide you when you went looking for ice creams in summer only to come upon half a pigs head with the one beady eye staring at you.

Fashions and technology change.

She won't stay slim if she eats all that by herself.

[edit] just checked and she appears to have died at the age of 54. Sad but unsurprising. A review of the book on Amazon:

Although it is shown on the cover, there is not actually a recipe for a milkshake.


All up, not a book I think I'd rely on.

Close. They had to close some of the restaurants but, mercifully, I can still get my B-Rex hit when the mood takes me.


You would love this place.

:lol: Heard about that place a while back. If I could stomach Vegas it'd be my first port of call.

They have rather cheekily painted on the wall a fresco of 'The Last Supper' but with the restaurant owner in place of Christ and all his disciplines made up of other fast food mascots (Ronald, Wendy, Colonel Sanders etc)

The burgers were actually pretty good, I kept it simple and ordered a double burger that almost defeated me so it was impressive to watch the fatty on the table opposite devour their signature 'Octuplet Bypass' burger which yes, had eight beef patties and about 30 pieces of bacon stuffed inside it.

Their other gimmick was that people over 350 lb (160kg) ate for free, they had an enormous set of scales in the middle of the restaurant that set off bells and lights when someone tipped it over that weight.

Possible not a first date place.

So you weren't subjected to the 'punishment' for failing to complete your meal? Possibly just as well as you were there with the wife.

I was unscathed, the wife got 'paddled' by one of the said nurses though, her feeble attempt to hide some food under a napkin was her downfall.

It was strangely arousing
