What could be more delicious than fish fingers and custard?

No self respecting fan would let this thread go by without making that point!

Growing up, I used to love a fish finger sandwich, & a big doorstep slice with beef dripping on it, happy days! Custard, that should go on rhubarb crumble.

IT is a shame that modern technology unlike the films we watch, the music we listen to the words we read, the bills we pay etc etc can't find a way to give us all the delicious foods the world eats. But unfortunately, food is still such a local business. Growing up in New York I tasted so many different ethnic foods from Europe and the rest of the world, I miss all of that stuff, that is so hard or impossible to get in small town America. Food can't come through the computer screen and all the information you can find on the computer maybe to order some non perishable food would cost a arm and a leg in postage.

Well, fish finger sandwiches have become trendy in recent years, and the wierd thing is the only things I like in breadcrumbs are fish fingers and the rissole style fishcakes. Straight fillets of fish I prefer freshly battered, and not the breadcrumb variety my wife often buys.

Bread and dripping? I've never been able to eat beef dripping unless it's mopped straight out of the roasting tin, whereas pork dripping is good cold. Beef leaves an awful film of fat on the roof of the mouth. Similarly, try eating fish and chips in the open air on a cold day that have been fried in dripping. It can solidify while you're eating them! Which is why, despite them being delicious, I try not to have them too often. And they lay heavy on the stomach too.

One of the local pubs on my regular village walk hands out bread and pork dripping and (Percy Turner's excellent locally produced) pork pie on Sunday afternoons. Gorgeous. Of course because of the extremely fatty nature of it, that half slice of bread is my ration for the week!

I can appreciate this. One thing I love in the US and Canada is pumpkin pie. Not a delicacy we have in the shops - yet - in the UK. Shame. Because around the same time (autumn/bonfire night/Halloween) we get parkin, a northern english ginger cake and bonfire toffee, but so far no pumpkin pies. Of course I have made the pies myself occasionally.

I know they'll take off if they're introduced. We get pumpkins around this time, which we didn't when I was a kid. So the pies are a little bit of Americanisation I would applaud but we don't have so far.
