steakfrites

There’s a pretty famous Parisian dish, one that food gurus and restaurateurs have made their name on. One example is Les Halles, where “bad boy” celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain served as head chef. It’s called Steak Frites – but really what it is a fancy name for steak and chips.

Sure, it may be served au poivre if you’re feeling really fanciful, but it is, at its heart, a simple thing. Simple, yet satisfying – and exactly what I’ll be having for dinner tonight. I’ll be making my own fries, following a recipe that sits somewhere between Les Halles’ ones and Heston’s triple cooked chips. And because this is SA, I’ll be putting an egg on top.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were too busy wondering what on earth to do while Twitter was down.

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.
