The thing is, especially now we are a global community, that what seems strange or interesting to one person seems normal to another. It's not so long ago that spaghetti bolognese was viewed as strange here!

I make hachis Parmentier all the time. It is known in this house as cottage pie if made with beef, shepherd's pie with lamb. M Parmentier was a pharmacist and nutritionalist and just before the French Revolution he realised that potatoes could help the starving peasants because they are easy to grow. In order to get them accepted by the aristocracy as well as the peasants he hyped them up and made them sought after by, among other things giving the flowers to the ladies of the court.

So anything topped with mashed potatoes is called Parmentier in France. One of the good things so prepared her is brandade Parmentier = creamed salt cod with garlic and olive oil topped with a mash also containing olive oil.

Queen fritters are called beignets in France and are a sort of doughnut but not made with yeast. Most bakers round here have their own version especially around Shrove Tuesday

My granny used to make Berwick sponge cake - we lived in NE England and spent many summers near Berwick. She also made Perwick tart and there are also Berwick cockles which on not sea food but striped mint sweets.

You might get more positive reactions to your posts if you interacted on threads that you have already started.

For instance, what do you take on picnics, what is your favourite frosting recipe?

just in case anyone really wanted to see (many of) the recipes mentioned above they are available .
probably his/her favourite site.
maybe the originator of the thread is just using this as an online list of things they might want to try sometime.

I really don’t want to be unwelcoming to new members, especially those from other places and cultures ... but I’m beginning to feel a little uncomfortable about answering random questions posed by a stranger who does not interact with folk on this forum in any other way.

Am I the odd one out?

Suelle interact with threads I start.

scullion the reason i like that manga is it has a good story as wells as good recipes

the recipe I got for bannock is from 1890's Boston Globe so it is probable and older version.

Rick Stein made a chicken parmentier in one of his ‘long weekends’ programmes, I think from Bordeaux. I thought it looked very nice, but I have never got round to making it.

Wargarden ... could you post your recipe for bannocks please? As they’re such an old dish, recipes are very varied ... they’re more a ‘method of cooking’ than an actual recipe, and the ingredients vary.

"Bannock." One and one-half cups of corn meal: pout' over it scalding milk till it is of the consistency of soft gingerbread. Add three eggs, well beaten, three teaspoons of sugar, butter the size of a walnut, salt, baking powder (one small teaspoonful). Bake in a buttered pan. and when in the oven add On teacup of cold milk. Do not stir. Vineyard Haven. E. R.

Ah, that's very much a North American bannock ... the bannocks we know are of Scottish and North England origin, dating right back to the early 8th Century and probably earlier ... they're usually made of oatmeal or barley flour and bacon fat (no eggs or milk) and cooked over the fire on a girdle (a type of circular flat iron pan with no or only a slight rim).


There's also the Selkirk bannock which is more like a fruit bread or cake https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/112 ... rk-bannock

Selkirk Bannock - I'm going to make that! I bring home a couple from Scotland, every year. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for researching the recipe.

that sounds more like corn bread or a variant of corn pone. (not the selkirk bannock, obviously).

I've been riffling fruitlessly through my bookshelves trying to find a reference to the cornmeal Bannocks made by native North American people ... I know I've read about them somewhere ... perhaps a library book ... I think what I read is that when Scottish settlers arrived in North America/Canada the native North Americans were making a sort of corn bread in a vaguely similar manner to the oat and/or barley meal bannocks made by the Scots and so this is what they were called by the settlers.

My research lead me to appreciate that bannock is simply an alternative name for a flatbread/cake made with grain flour. there are examples from as far apart as Innuit to Napalese via Selkirk! Actually the history is rather fascinating if you have a long time to read it!!
It raises an interesting question though does it not? If someone in Canada says they are cooking a bannock they mean something quite different from a cook in Nepal or to something Queen Victoria took with her tea.

However, reading Wargarden's recipe I did have a smile because it says "Until it resembles gingerbread" Now would this be Yorkshire parkin, Grasmere gingerbread ................... :lol:


Still. Right now life's too short to butter a slice of bannock!

... as a child I was always puzzled by the story of the Gingerbread Man. I couldn't work out how my grandmother's wonderful dark, almost gooey gingerbread could turn itself into that kind of man! I think I was grown up before I saw a gingerbread man (a ginger biscuit!) or German-style gingerbreads used to make decorations at Christmas etc.

Here's a link to the Shetland Bannock recipe I tried a wee while back:

https://www.tasteofshetland.com/blog/a- ... d-bannocks

It's fascinating isn't it? There's a reference in the 'Thorn Birds' to the family at Drogheda (the Australian sheep ranch in the novel) sitting down to afternoon tea with 'fresh Bannocks'. I wonder what sort of Bannock the author had in mind?

That looks quite interesting Rats.

I like wargarten's last link. The recipes are interesting but I'd say the cooking method for both Scottish and Indian versions debatable. I believe that both nationalities traditionally cook on girdles rather than ovens. Just being picky because the author of the letter was!

the following recipe is from:
the newspaper "Northern Argus" Clare, SA Australia Tue 10 Oct 1876

Oatmeal Bannocks.—Put a handful of
Scotch oatmeal in a basin with, a little
butter (or clarified dripping), and a pinch
of salt, mix; it into a paste with a little cold
water, beat and knead it well, then roll it
out to one-eighth of an inch, bake on a
griddle over a bright fire until browned and
quite crisp.

from Australia Weekly Times (Melbourne, Vic. ) Sat 10 Jun 1882
another recipe
Bannocks. — One pound of fine Scotch oat
meal, half a teaspoonful of salt, a salt-
spoonful of carbonate of soda, 2oz. of lard or
dripping, about half a pint of cold water.
Put the meal into a large bowl, add the salt
and carbonate of soda, and mix well; then
pour over this the lard (previously melted by
placing in a jar on the top of the stove). Mix
this well with the hand, and add as much cold
water as will make it keep together, Turn
out on the baking board and quickly shape it
round and flat, and sprinkle a little dry meal
over it, and roll it out thin. Cut them out
the size you wish. Have your griddle pretty
hot, and, after brushing each, bannock, lay it
on. Fire rather slowly until one side is
brown ; turn and do the other side. Finish
by doing on a toaster before the fare.

These are sounding very like flat breads but made with oatmeal. For me this is really difficult to lay hands on. I have to oreder it specialy. I make something similar using whole meal flour which I cook on my pizza stone. I usually add some evoo though.

I expect that lard was more readily available than EVOO in 1882 ;).

earthmaiden the fats used in most cooking either follow whats available through trade (usually plant based oils),the local livestock or
dietary rules. In France lard is king except where ducks and geese common for Foie Gras since that was side effect of fats needed
for Jewish cooking since there dietary rules forbid the use of pork and some types beef fats;But either using oils in pareve
and dairy cooking; or chicken and duck in meat cooking.
