So popular did our recent parmo versus poutine post-pub nosh deathmatch prove that we received a veritable banquet of emails demanding we make the recipe guides genuinely cut-out-and-keep. No problemo, and you can help yourselves to servings of parmo and poutine in a handy pdf format here and here (Both 8.76451 petagig PDFs. May …
From a Canadian of French heritage - Your poutine will be much better (IMO) if you put the curd on the fries first and then pour on the gravy. Beautifully soft gooey cheesey goodness!
If you want a real treat post-pub add a scoop of cole slaw to the top. I'm not kidding and you have to try it to believe it.
I know. I insulted the Canadians about the band Rush a few years back, and now I've screwed up their national dish. I expect blokes with sealskin coats and baseball bats at my door any minute now...
@Lester: You've insulted us Canucks again!
As a Canuckistani, and native of Montreal Quebec...
We don't beat people with bats, we use hockey sticks!

... that parmo looks fucking lush.
Take issue with your chips though, summat's not right with them, underdone by the looks.
Re: as a veggie with a stunningly healthy diet
Hey, don't diss my boy's chips, man. He is the chipmeister in this house, and big up rispek is due for that, innit?

Ahem, that's saaaaarf London, bruv.
...the proper type of gravy for poutine is awesomesauce.
Half sheep's head please
in a viking deathmatch against the almighty surströmming sandwich.
That would quite probably be a literal deathmatch if any non-Scandinavians were involved...
Curds first, gravy second...
And for a true French Canadian Poutine get the Frommage Beaucronne cheese curds that squeak when you squeeze them. If they don't they are not fresh.
After the 10th pint
I was absolutely laminated.
My local is opposite an indian takeaway (and next to a newsagents, forming a pretty good drinking trifecta). My local also has liberal views on the consumption of food not purchased on the premises, they'll even lend you the cutlery with which to consume it.
I trust medical science is making progress with body transplants, yeah?
1. Deep fried battered mushrooms, chips and a pickled onion or two, but it was a long time ago and that chippy is long gone now. Sadly.
2. Fried hogs pudding, egg and chips. Lovely!
Quick! Patent it fast before Delia gets a sniff! Its a classic already nom nom ;)
apple have already taken out a patent on it
Replace the curds with coleslaw and we'll talk.
Par boil (or even microwave) your Pommes de terre, fronch because this is Haute cuisine – right, slice and deep fry (let them cool first), best way to get crispy chips that are soft and fluffy inside.
Also has the advantage that you can prepare the Pommes de terre before you go to the imbibing emporium and cook them quickly after you perambulate towards your abode in an inebriated state.
Paris, soft and fluffy and doesn’t need beer goggles
Mmmmm Parmo... Tho i prefer the chicken variant!
Isn't "parvo" a virus that dogs get?
And how do I stop reading that as "poitín", possibly the very thing to drink after drinking?
My preference is to buy the post-pub early-death meal-deal ready-made from the nearest all-nite take-away establishment (usually involves chilli sawwce, as it happens). This is for two reasons:
I'm extremely lazy and, maybe more significantly,
Pissed-up people, fryng pans or ovens in general don't mix well in my experience. If you're lucky, it's just the eyebrows/ashes/fringe that get totalled but not necessarily - flat or terraced house dwellers may also want to reflect on the third-party implications of that for a moment.
So, unless there's a house mate/guest who's the designated fryer and has opted to remain sober (and why /on earth/ would there be?), this whole intoxicant-fuelled cookery masterclass thing is a recipe for disaster (geddit).
That's enough hyphens - it's Pub o'clock. Cheers.
you can laminate kebabs!
Probably keep forever, kept warm by entropy from the heat death of the Universe..

After ten pints
I often can't wait and have to laminate against a fence somewhere on the way home.
Try a kapsalon...
In The Netherlands we have the infamous "Kapsalon" - it's even got it's own English wikipage:
One of those after a night out - or even before, during AND after - can't be beat.
I do like how Kapsalon and kebabs
are served covered in salad - are the consumers in denial, or something?
"Look, lettuce, that's healthy!"
Sounds like mr Creosote would like these
Put it all in a bucket, and have another bucket on stand by.
