    Last night I cooked a beautiful, big, 3kg pork roast for my mates who came over to watch as we were smashed by the Sea Eagles.

    Baked pumpkin, potatoes, carrots and onions. Pan gravy and fresh apple sauce...

    Man, I haven't eaten such a delicious meal in ages. I'm such a great cook!

    Ok thats just not fair! *Glares* Roast pork is my fave meal of all, and the only time i get to eat it like that is on Christmas Day when my Mum cooks it with all those trimmings. Though she goes one step ferther and cooks it in the Webber for that awsome bbq taste! mmmmmmmm
    Though i have to admit she never seems to get the crackling just right in the webber, crackling never seems to go perfect when you slow cook...

    Still, my mouth is watering. Come round to my place and cook one for me tonight Mijack? mmmmmmmm

    Perfect crackling....

    1. Get pork loin with belly flap on, leg is good but not shoulder

    2. Score the pork with a stanley knife (utility knife) in cross hatch pattern
    put the pork on a wire rack over a roasting dish, then pour boiling water over the pork to make the rind shrink (this is a key thing to making awesome crackling)
    3. Then get a towel and dry the roast, take time with this a wet pork wont give you crackling!.

    4. Season with alot of salt and get it into the cracks then coat in olive oil. tie it up with butchers twine

    5. Put it on a rack so the roast is above the edges of the dish or a shallow baking dish (so its away from steam) 160 degrees, 35 mins for every kilo

    6. Take pork out turn heat up to 220 degrees, when its at temperature, put the meat back in 15 minutes for every kilo

    Voila, awesome crackling :D

    Fact. has a perfectly valid point in relation to this thread being OT. It was my mistake to miss it and even more of a mistake to post in it without making mention of its OT nature.

    Please include OT in the title.

    Thankyou.

    To Fact and GE, I apologize for presuming everyone eats food. I guess the two of you have some medical issue where your food is in those bags that gets pumped directly into your stomach. Dont take it personaly, everyone esle needs to eat.

    I dont need football to live.

    mmm tacos? or perhaps spaggetti. Thats one of my faves.
     
  25. These days I hardly watch any football. Origin 3 however I did watch, and enjoy.

    I only made my post here in your thread because of the hypocritical remark you made in Fact's thread. I noticed that the other thread has since been labeled OT like the mod requested, whereas you still have not. Why be so stubborn? The mod has requested OT labels be placed on OT threads. Instead of OT labeling this thread you added UO into the title because the earlier would be admitting you made a mistake.

    Sometimes being right, is wrong... and sometimes admitting you were wrong is being right. By the way, as far as I know everyone eats food/or gets it through a tube, apart from those people who claim to live soley off oxygen, and then say they drink 5 cups of tea a day in the same sentence.
     
  26. Just incase you missed it.....

    Yeah OK, I'm the first to admit I've fenced with Jah on these forums before in the past, but it could have been just about anyone and I still would have said my mind about what I saw and called a spade a spade.

    "takes the coin of the tracks*

    I would really love it if you could do more with cooking in UO. Choc & ginger bread cookies are ok but meh,
    being able to RP more with food in game, get someone over for dinner and make them a drink and a feed even so they could see/hear someting going on *shrugs*

    I wish we could get broccoli (sp) in game :danceb: go the broccoli dance!:danceb::danceb::danceb::danceb::danceb:

    Edit: Doesnt it kinda look like a mouldy sausage?
     
  37. dinner tonight was what we call "catch a can"...meaning if you find it in the cupboard (usually a canned good) you can have it, but you make it yourself.

    As for UO Cooking I have chef and she really only gets used at special events as I can decorate the cakes and cookies with messages...I would love for food in UO to have more use to provide more of a boost to our players so that people actually brought it.

    I would also like to grow veggies myself in my garden and to be able to combine things like lettuce and carrot and make a tossed salad. or to add a chicken and carrot and pumpkin and call it a roast chicken....just for it to be more creative and useful.

    I have often thought of opening a restaurant in uo with a menu and prices and maybe some entertainment and just make it a RP hang out. BUT I have never gotten around to it. You could even pay people to be your staff....but not everyone finds RP fun so don't know how well it would go over.
     

  38. or under ripe banana's with Afro's LOL

    Have you seen the 2D eating animation? They put it into the game a short while back, but it's an old render (not sure if it was never implemented or just got lost for many years).

    Anyhow, yeah, getting back into Cooking vendors after a long break. I have all the grapes/apples/fruit-bowls, plus GM(deco-able)/begged/crate foods.

    Ya, the "omg I'm choking!" clutching-the-neck move.
     
  42. too funny.....

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to make cooking and food in UO just more then it is?

    I was thinking of having a RP guild leaders dinner.
     
  43. Fink

    One thing is to make sure the character you're using is actually hungry enough to eat food. If you fill up, you can just *nibble* *chew* *munch* emote your way through the remaining courses, but to be hungry enough to genuinely eat food, this might help..

    In UO you have to take damage then allow your hp to regenerate - not actively heal - to get hungry (a bizarre system, but that's it). Around 41hp on average equals a "standard" bite, such as a fruit, veggie, fish steak, etc. A roast pig will fill you up in one hit (as it should :eek:), and some other foods (eg: large pumpkin) are more filling than others.

    You should do this HP regen thing a number of times in preparation for a banquet/feast. If you really want to power through this process, you can slip on a HPR suit and pop a tinker trap/iron maiden/etc, or just cast damage on yourself, or come up with your own method. I use a bloodwood suit and dart trap, myself.

    :danceb:

    And if you're wondering how I know all this stuff, it's from another of my unfinished & unpublished skill studies. Hopefully I'll finish them all before they pull the plug on UO. :coco:
     
  44. Food regenerating hit points is what happens in Shaiya - you eat an abel (apple) or some other fruit that you can collect or by and different types of fruit or food regenerate your health different amounts...I think this would be a cool add on to UO maybe as a side to potions or bandies.

    Hey thats nifty. i always wondered why somtimes i seemed to go ages without needing to eat, and sometimes i can eat a ton.
     
  46. Fink

    Fink Guest

    Could be good.. sort of works the other way in UO at the moment, hp regenerating makes you hungry.. food could do with some intrinsic purpose, but I'm sure there'd be outcry across the board because suddenly everyone's somehow "forced" to eat, a bit like the debacle over hunger rates post-ML.

    So what i always wanted to know, if you dont eat in UO, does it realy affect spell casting or skills in general?
     
  48. I have always wondered that too cause I always forget to eat and my poor characters must bet the size of twigs cause I only feed them like maybe once every 3 months.
