    55 The 'boards' look new , but there is obvious reasons why an impermiable and shiny surface like porcelin overtook , wood , lead or copper or even pewter.

    But most of our grannies used a big wood chopping board ( remember 'butchers blocks' ?) , so we can get a bit carried away with 'best practise'...

    I dunno , but I doubt the Aus Health Dept would approve , but then they resisted 'outdoor dining' in NSW for ages after it was ok in Melbourne.

    These wooden boards are the talk of the town at the moment,

    Next they will be telling people not to keep chicken in the pantry.

    No wonder people get sick when traveling, things are just too clean IMO.

    Chicken in the pantry hey Ozzy JHC man - remind me to steer clear at dinner time..............

    We use and have always used wood chopping boards, I have always understood they have natural antiseptic properties.

    The problem would lie, I'm guessing in the way they're cleaned and the amount of score marks/damage, enabling bacteria to establish and thrive.

    Edit: We dont keep cooked chicken in the pantry

    ^ Agreed about the cleaning too much nowadays !

    Septic systems are a good example: When we first moved to the bush - no sewage, water, etc. The Mrs still used all the disinfectant type cleaning products, she'd been accustomed to using.

    I kept trying to tell her she was killing all the bacteria that feeds on the sh1t in the septic, typically, being the everything must be clean sort of person, she couldn't get her head around that.
    It was only when we had to pay not insignificant money to have the septic sucked out - prematurely, that she started to listen.

    Now she only uses enviro friendly products and when we do have to have the septic vacced out, it's because it's genuinely chockers.
    Pretty amazing how, when a septic is working as it should and you do have it cleaned out, the residual material doesn't smell and looks like compost !

    In the Kootenays of BC, there is a back to nature group living in Yurt type buildings similar to what the natives used to live in. They grow their own vegetables in a garden fertilized by human waste. They poop in a bucket filled with hemlock bark from trees. There is no smell afterwards and the poop breaks down and turns into soil. My ex and I stayed there one night. It was a good lesson in living with nature, rather than fighting it.

    The buildings were round in the Yurt fashion and were 50% below ground level. The fire place was in the center and the smoke went straight up through the hole in the roof. The buildings are cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

    Ozzy I'd actually prefer the chicken was cooked than uncooked in the pantry! 5555

    Those dumplings look great. I used to be a rice and curry guy with Asian food but over the last year or so I've grown to like a lot of the soupy type stuff.

    A couple of Chinese friends drove me up to their province for the weekend. A place call Quinshan, only about an hour out from where I live. Loved the restaurant we went to.













    This isn't water

    What are you eating ?



    I don't know what this was, bloody delicious. They were hot, stuffed buns. All crispy and toasted with sesame seeds on it.



    We asked for free flow beer and they brought us the whole carton.



    I also met some local chicks who work for the restaurant.

    Digging into some Sichuan ribs at the moment. The flavour is insane.



    A lot of restaurants here often bring out sunflower seeds and tea when you sit down. The seeds are lightly roasted and salty. You break them open with your teeth for the tasty morsel inside. Kills a bit of time while you wait for food. Salted peanuts are also common.
