making a bit of dosh for christmas!

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

As said I am not in the UK, I am not selling food either, sorry I caused any fuss. After some thought I realised that I do actually have a food handling certificate from a previous job. It took about 2 hours and a very easy test to get it so if I have worried anyone please stop now! Local councils are usually quite helpful about this kind of thing.
There is a different attitude to this kind of thing here, anything 'homemade' is considered better than shop bought.
Yesterday we stopped at a shopping mall and inside there was a lady with a little table selling eggs, curd tarts and curd cheese, I stopped and bought some eggs then put them in the trolley went round the supermarket and did my shopping. At the end I just pointed to the old ladyand the checkout didn't bat an eyelid. It is not an unsophisticated country it just seems to be able to cope with both sytems.

i dont there is any fush or bad feeling - just discussing it really. :icon_smile:

I definitely consider homemade better than shop - and prefer to eat things that have a limited shelf life rather than be so filled with preservatives that it can sit on the supermarket shelf for months - its quite horrible when you think of it - gi ven how the shops are already full of thingymas foods..they will sit around for months...ew...

I like like minded people... a bit like minded anyway.. well people with bits of their minds that are like the bits of my mind that I like...

We can buy Hot Dogs and Bacon Butties of some fat sweaty arse scratching, fag smoking greese ball at a Car auction, out the back of a delipidated £500 wagon, but can't by a victoria sponge of a Mrs Bucket at the WI who made it in her £20,000 magnet kitchen? Look at the person, look at the food, if it don't look right it ain't right, I personally don't need to see a certificate to allow me to make that choice, and I object to over officious individuals telling that I am too stupid to make that choice.
Horses for courses,Boboff,at our local auction the arse scratcher sells hot dogs AND victoria sponges and I always have both!

Indeed, it's almost like a winter "Salmonella & Listeria" top up Jab!!! I do object to the Colliforms though, as really they should wash there hands after number two's!

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
