- The perfect ploughman's lunch – what should / should not be on the plate?
3+ doorstop slices of fresh bread (not a brake brothers fancy nuts bake in the oven mini baguette), butter (not marg), 1/4lb of mature cheddar or stilton (not a few slices of limp-dick plastic cheese), maybe a chunk of ham (not a slice of anaemic, flaccid, lardy, water-injected, tripe-like, caterer's ham) , a big dollop of homemade chutney (not a dinky mini lil'white pot of tart and bland branston-a-like). Nothing else and certainly no bloody salad.Posted 7 years agoZukemonsterMember
For me its about having perfect ratios in the ploughmans, (as well as some good food) No point having a huge hunk of cheese if there isn't enough bread to use half of it, and the chutney has to be in ample supply too.
Pickled Onion: Yes
and a bit of salad too.
