Galloping through the inferno
I’ve been awfully busy of late, folks, but I wanted to let you know you are much on my mind. As soon as the Slattern’s Test Kitchen is back up and running and my eyebrows have filled in a bit more*, I’ll be right back to sending out middling recipes especially suited for the lazy, the untalented and the indifferent. Until then, here’s a quick peek at my culinary role model, the one and only Galloping Gourmet, Graham Kerr, in his heyday — that is, before he went all vegan and stopped drinking and became uninteresting. A cautionary tale if ever I’ve heard one.
* Important safety tip: Save that sixth glass of wine until AFTER you’ve flamed the Crepes Suzette.

Sorry Slattern, but I really need to know more about mjacahe’s cheese on toast recipes. I have mastered the grilled cheese, but if there are other options out there, I need to know about them.
BTW, vegans make my “ass ache” to steal a phrase from your repertoire. And you know how I feel about teetotalers. Curious, was he also born again?
I don’t know about any road to Damascus experience, but I believe there was a brush with death for The Gourmet’s wife.
As for Mel’s cheese toast, you’ll have to consult the oracle direct.
I used to watch Graham Kerr (Sp?) all the time. I don’t see his equal on TV till this day. He blew everybody out of the kitchen with his passion, love, and ability to communicate.
He celebrated food. It seems today the food network beats you over the head with snobbery.
Ah, you are so right, Kenton. That’s why I watch the bulk of my cooking programs on YouTube. Julia Child, Graham Kerr, the Two Fat Ladies…people who are just really having fun with it, no matter what their ability.
Yes, forgot about the fat gals and Julia was a no brainer.
Hey KS, ‘middling recipes especially suited for the lazy, the untalented and the indifferent’ – Oh hit me up with a load of those! I have come to the right place.
I’ve mastered 1001 ways with cheese on toast so your recipes will be a refreshing departure from.. cheese.
We aim to please, Mel. And when we fail to please, we go for straight for the cheap laugh.
