not a joke - the fishy ones are a bit like fish cakes - so if we're in a 'pie & chips from the chippy' direction - why not fishcakes?

Thanks for the heads up on Ibericos, I take it from above that always means cold

The Bacalao I have had hot and cold in some places, you really need to specify hot and same with some soups, god how they can have them cold

As for Pie and chips, well I know you are in Olivia and I saw in a shop in Valencia they sold Pukka Pies, I was very suprised, but if i recall the shop I will post it back, I have a reciept from it somewhere, and you could buy a load of them and cook them !!!

Wish you a great wedding and good luck !

with alcohol so do I, I was bought up on a routine English meals, every day of every week as a child I would have the same meal,

Sunday = Roast
Monday = Pie and mash with beans or processed peas
Tuesaday = Liver & bacon or pork chop & potatoes
Wed's = Sausage and potatoes with combo of peas or beans
Thursday = Turkey Escallops with potatoes and beans
Friday = Cod and Chips or similar
Saturday = take away fromm local Chippie

No offence to my parents but I had this every day of my life til I hit my late teens, from then on my Mum god bless her dies at 45 of Cancer, my dad and me fell out, I spent 5 years eating crap from the above then I met some birds, they got the right hum with me saying I was well fussy and childish, but they introduced me to so many different foods its unreal,

Things like I used to cut the fat off Bacon, steak and pork chops, I used to have a steak well done becuase I thought it was the only way, Id spew up looking at a Pizza,

these days Ill eat a steak with blood pouring out, Ill swallow all the fat off any bit of pork, and Pizza and Italian and Mexican I love, chinese and Indian the same.

I think my parents may have been stuck in the 70's but now Ill try anything and Spain I love becuase you can for next to nothing.

I love any meat, but I not keen on fish, especially cold fish, but Tapa's have got me into fish and other meats such as bulls tail "rabo de toro" which I highly reccomend.

Im babbling on but I want to get my point across that some parents should not just cook the food for there kids what they like and nowt else, I pretty much believe in this day and age what happened to me does not go on in such a multi cultural society but none the less

Saw a nice dessert the other day. Dried figs marinaded in Ximenez sherry, - the dark, almost tarry sherry, plus a dash of vanilla ice cream.

Here's a nice, easy homemade similar(ish) version of the above:

Chuck some bananas on your BBQ - still in their skins - until they turn black. Then squeeze the filling out onto your plate. Put the dob of vanilla ice-cream next to it and then pour your Pedro Ximenez over the top. Mmmmmm.

I guess it would probably work with other fruit too but I haven't tried that yet.
