Many thanks to Argentum Vulgaris in Brazil for the link and plug over at 'Things that Fizz'. T.T.F. is a blog dedicated to curiosity and appetite, and to anyone whose eyes are bigger than their belly. All manner of curiosities are introduced here, and your every-day recipe may be a new thought to someone from another part of the planet. Did you know Laotians eat crispy mulberry leaves with chilli sauce? I didn't, but thanks to A.G. I do now, and I'm kicking myself for all the years spent among Greek mulberry trees whose leaves I could have bloody eaten but didn't. Shandy is not well known around the world, it seems, but AG brings it to a wider audience. It is not for me, shandy, but there is something here for everyone. I rarely drink beer and if I do, I only go for hooligan-strength stuff like Carlsberg Special Brew, which the local off-license man used to sell me in quantity when I was fourteen. I wasn't a hoodie avant la lettre, they just didn't fuss about kids so much then.
'You have a short-drinker's tastes, and a beer-drinker's capacity' my father used to say to me re. my love of booze. If this description fits you too, check out Argentum Vulgaris's blog.
