Vegetarian gratin supplementary touch
I made the vegetarian gratin recipe last night adding a layer of sliced goats cheese. This transforms the dish completely and raises it to new levels of deliciousness
Orignal recipe can be found herebelow on 23rd October or on this link.

So you thought "Condom" is a silly name for a town
The very day I was galavanting around Gascony and visiting Condom I received this photo from a friend, who probably prefers to remain anonymous (for the francophiles among us, his name is Grisjambon).
Much like Condom, where the Mayor got so fed up with his town signs being stolen by English tourists he created the world first (and possibly only) condom museum, there is apparently a little town in Austria (where else..) called "Fucking".
The newspaper article, which accompanied the photo of the town sign, contained some absolute gems:
- "Police chief Kommandant Schmidtbrger said 'We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed.'"
- "It may be amusing for you British, but Fucking is simply Fucking to us. What is this big Fucking joke?"
It gets worse:
- "German tourists want to see Mozart's house in Salzburg, Americans seem only to care about The Sound of Music film, the occasional Japanese tourist wants to visit Hitler's birthplace, but for the British it's all about Fucking......."
