I've seen this thread on a few forums, and it tends to be long running, and helps people get to know each other.

Da Roolz.

Answer the question in the post above, either seriously or jokingly. Some answers I've seen have been downright rude:eek:cool

After answering, post a question of your own.

In the event of double posting of answers, the next responder can answer to either subsequent question. But otherwise, it is the most recent question posed that gets responded to.

So I'll start.

What was the most recent thing you ate?

I could tell you but then I would have to shoot you cry because Fiona intends to blog about it. Suffice to say that it was a bought in ready-to-cook meal that was surprisingly a lot better than we expected.

Seeing as I have not answered David's question properly, I will replay it for the next person:

Love All by Elizabeth Jane Howard. Very light but I loved it and often think about it now.

My question is what are you reading now?

(I'm reading Apricots on the Nile by Coleete Rossant - a marvellous book - a memoir with recipes)

I'm reading 'an illustrated history of Jewish London" to find out what the Whitechapel Road was like when my Great-great Grandfather lived there with his son, a tobacconist, and one of his daughters, who married a Tailor from Russia whose nephew became a magician, "Rameses". It seems to have been rather too exciting- Marie Lloyd playing at the Music Hall two doors down the road, the Ripper murdering someone in the street behind the shop- my Great-great grandfather returned to re-join the rest of his family in Watford and his son ended up in a lunatic asylum. The sister stayed there, happily married to her Jewish tailor, who, my Great Grandmother told me, " was a very nice man, but suffered dreadfully from his stomach dear."

So, my question is, when you are feeling down, as the Jewish tailor with the bad stomach must have done and the tobacconist certainly did, what food can lift your mood and produce instant cheeriness, even just by thinking about it?

What an interesting family history you have Kate.   I think I'd want to know more about those times too.

Risotto is the food that always lifts my mood, it doesn't even need to have protein in it.

My question is what food do you dislike and would like to see banished?

I'll try that again!

Dessicated coconut.aaaargh! The rest of my family love it. Bounty bars, coconut pyramids- my idea of food hell. Gooseberries- somehow, to me, they taste of pigs. Goat cheese- tastes of aged male goat and I cannot understand why it is so popular, especially warm as it gets even goatier...anything with tentacles ( this is squeamishness rather than the taste)....blacmange,tapioca and cold school custard with skin on it, snails ( what's the point? There are less personal ways to get rid of them from your garden), omlettes.

What food do you remember most fondly from your childhood?

Strawberry freezer jam! My grandmother made it and I would have had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner if my mother would have let me.

Hmm, lets change it up a bit......assuming there is reincarnation......what would you hope to come back as?

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

A champion racehorse.

Get all the best food, run a few miles, get retired at 3 or 4, and get put out to stud.

Very coolWink

Which reasonably priced supermarket wine would you recommend?

Faint!!!!  Surprised Then pay off some debts, help my family and friends out... which would give me the greatest pleasure as a lot of my family and friends are really struggling financially at the moment... donate some to a favourite charity and then I guess invest the rest wisely....

What is your favourite dessert?
