Stranger things happen at sea
This post is for John really. Look at these - Scotch Eggs with a difference. They are Cadbury's Cream Eggs wrapped in chocolate cake for the meat. Apparently they weigh about half a pound each. A bit rich to say the least.
A friend of mine is the chief engineer on board the ship which is currently ruining the view from the windows of the Hotel Metropol in Brighton by erecting gigantic wind-turbines out to sea - just on the horizon.
It is a one month on, one month off job for all the crew, and the activity is very dependent on the weather conditions, so they all get bored from time to time.
Nobody gets as bored as the chef though, and he is - I am told - constantly coming up with different ideas to keep himself amused in the galley. All of those cakes you can see around the Scotch Eggs are made by him, as is everything on offer. All the meals served up involve multiple-choice. Apparently the hardest thing to do on board is try not to get fat.
