Stoke On Trent - Newcastle area

Amusingly I can sometimes find the oatcakes in Sainsburys in London, but it doesn't feel the same as having them freshly dished up for me in Newcastle Under Lyme :)

Christmas salad ideas

Since Brussel sprouts are traditional how about something like this? http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/10/ro...

Also if you can share the recipe for the Peruvian turkey that would be amazing :)

Definitely try the oatcakes. Unlike the Scottish variety these are more like slightly savoury pancakes. Great grilled up with cheese and bacon.

Help Figure Out This Labelling Quandary?

It isn't wrong if the calorie calculation is for the 17g of carbs. Rounded up though possibly. 17g of carbs (of which sugars 4g) would still be around 68 total.

17 grams of carbohydrate at approx 4 calories per gram = 68 calories. Possibly that is your 70.

Sunday (pub?) meal & Indian dinner help

Harwood arms in Fulham perhaps for pub as you are already west. Dishoom or gymkhana. Amaya are all good.

Reluctance to buy online?

I usually suggest it when things are hard to find locally.

I find similar. I often suggest an online source as it is far easier that way.

White Worcestershire sauce

Yeah, since a white variant of the old stuff doesn't exist (or not any longer) I think this must be it.

What are your stovetop oatmeal tricks?

Less creamy generally but you can also cook it more slowly than the generally used high power setting and that yields better results as does playing around with the amount of milk you like. Use a big big bowl.
Do read the article I posted below if you have time, it really opened my eyes to the art of porridge making.

What are your stovetop oatmeal tricks?

Overnight makes things much quicker and you can also get more of a "pudding" that way if that is your thing.
At work I make rolled oats in the microwave :D

I really recommend this article:

I too love oatmeal (porridge) more simple than containing half the content of the treats cupboard.

It's a journey and story through food, they are not changing the script to suit one person, they have 1000s of people still coming through the doors to experience it.

Prepped Food /Food Halls in London, Any reccos?

There is quite a lot of British produce championed in the stores down here. I have noticed a lot from Kent, but I don't know if that is "regional" support or just the fact that Kent produces rather a lot of tasty food.

Dumpling disaster, any ideas?

You can make dumplings like this. But steamed.
I've found a recipe in a blog:

The M+S at Green park station definitely has food. Most have a food hall, some at stations are called "simply food" and only do food. You can check the website for specific other branches.

It is moving to Australia for 6 months so it will be interesting to see what it is like when it returns.

Likewise, I wouldn't go back for the same dishes as it would be like seeing the same theatre play (all singing all dancing musical is probably a better analogy) twice.

However if they were to change the billing I would be back for the new performance in a heartbeat.

Dinner was disappointing because The Fat Duck is just so incredible an experience. I think I went expecting too much.
