Food trends come and go but Steak and Chips still reigns supreme. According to a recent poll, this is Britain's favourite dish this year; leaving other contenders such as spaghetti bolognese, pizza, lasagne and chilli con carne. I cannot believe fish and chips or any pies and stews did not make it to the top ten list.
I do like steak and chips, and there's just something so honest about the dish: grilled meat and fried potatoes, simple as. I like it so much, my essay on 'Decoding Popular Culture' during my undergraduate study was based on Steak and Chips. I wrote about its significance, what the dish represents and its philosophical consequences, particularly for the French during the war.
But anyway, I don't want to bore you. The meat and potatoes were lovely. I had them with grilled asparagus and peppercorn sauce. I'm afraid this is the last home-cooked meal this year as tomorrow morning I am leaving for Bath and will be spending the New Years in London. I wish everyone a very Happy New Year in advance; may next year be a joyful one. Thank you for all the support this year and I'll see you in 2011...
