Wednesday 16th May 2012If there is one thing that characterises The Offal Club more than its love of animals, its our adherence to the rule book. Surprising then that when the BBC came calling, the first rule of Offal Club went right out of the window. Most of the Offal Club like to model themselves on Granada era Tony Wilson (apart from Simon who is aiming for pre-weave Elton John), so turning down our 15 minutes didn’t really seem like an option. Having convened a (ir)regular Offal Club just the week before, we were faced with setting up an impromptu one at the last minute in a new venue (Simon C’s house) when BBC2’s “The Great Food Revival” came calling. Scheduled to appear in late autumn as part of an Offal special, Simon C, Howie, Jon and Jason entertained Chef Matt Tebbutt and crew with testicles and brain. Cooked in fact by Lisa C. That right there breaks another Offal Club rule. It will probably all come across a bit weird.
The Great British Food Revival website is here!
Members Present: Jason, Howie, Jon and Simon C
Excuses of the night: Simon F "I'm just going to a conference in Brighton...you go on without me" (approximate translation from actual unpublishable comments made when he realised he wasn't going to be around)
Next Offal Club: Jason's house, possibly to welcome a conquering Kazakh hero with 5 pigs heads
