I also hate aubergines. If someone wants to set up a forum so we can bitch about them (and courgettes, they're rubbish and all,) I'll join!

 

I like dark roast in an Espresso, a bit lighter in a Cappuccino. To be quite honest, no troll, I really was beginning to think it was a sign of my lack of knowledge and/or ability to use my Classic! I think I should probably stop worrying and drink more!

Can be slightly bitter sometimes, best use an ims. Suit a dark roast but also nice with a hint of lemon

Yeah but it depends on the chef.

 

Only a good chef can get the best out of them

Ah another excellent choice, perhaps some fresh marjoram or oregano in that instance?

We visited some farms in Tuscany, the oil olive was off the chart. One place we visited we side-by-side tasted 3 different oils .....they only made enough of their best pressing for familiy and friends, gave it away to them for free - man that stuff was so so sweet and flavourful. The next pressing/grade was for sale for visitors/tourists at 15 euros for 125ml & that was better than 99.9% of whats on UK shelves, bright green , fresh , aromatic and savoury.

 

The stuff we get here is mainly pants : (

I've only splurged on one bottle of proper olive oil, was after reading giorgio locatelli' s book and he spends about ten pages going on about finding good oils and how to taste them properly. Think it was about 15 quid for a tiny bottle but it was so good. Tasted like grass, but in a positive way
