Nice and Cheesy

Before I get to the cheese, I was thinking further about Richard McBeef, and realised that it has affected different entities in different ways. McDonalds, for example, will never, ever, be able to risk marketing a "McBeef Burger", a name which they are bound to have considered in the past; MC Beef is also in trouble.

Anyway, Simon revealed that today was national cheese on toast day. I got home fully intending to have some of the delicious savoury goodness, only to discover that I was tragically cheeseless and couldn't be arsed to walk to the shop. I'll have some over the weekend, and will try this delicious sounding cheese and beer on toast from beer for dinner.

And, by the way, isn't the national cheese on toast day website one of the worst in the history of the internets?

The cheese on toast website is horrendous. Likewise, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland website.

It makes me wonder if the cheese on toast website is so bad because they wanted to put it up in a hurry (it was only created this past February) so as to raise awareness for this hallowed day. The least they could have done, though, was to put up a graphic of either cheese or toast. What do those leaves have to do with anything? And maybe a recipe section might have been nice.

They (and the Irish Presbyterians) should hire me to revolutionize their website. I am certain I could do a better job with both sites.

Question: what, exactly, is English mustard?

English mustard is particularly hot. If Dijon mustard is ten times as hot as American mustard, then English Mustard is probably at least twice as hot as Dijon. It adds a fiery kick to any dish.

All about English Mustard

The different types of mustard

Personally I like Dijon the most, as it has the best mix of flavour and heat. It does, of course, depend on the application: American is the only variety to use on hot dogs (put that much English or Dijon on and you will not taste anything else for days), whilst Dijon or English is delightful for dipping a could sausage into or eating with a pork pie.
