In Other News – 1 November 2016

2 min read


While there’s no denying that a good bit of fillet feels like premium cut, I’ve always favoured the tougher, underappreciated cuts of meat for their flavour. Yes, they may be chewy and require hours of cooking, to get right – but man, when they’re cooked well, it’s special. Give me brisket, chuck and short rib any day of the week. And I do love a bit of short rib, whether it be an English cut, or a flanken. Braise it, stew it, braai it even. As long as it ends up in my face.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
