    What is 'scoring the flesh' of something in cooking? Is it going at it with a fork?

    The last time i roasted a ham I made around 6 deep cuts where i stuffed a clove of garlic deep into each one, did a bit of scoring and rubbed a shit load of salt into the fat, browned all its sides on a pan for 10 minutes and then into the oven.

    Here's another- if you were going to cook stuffed roasted aubergines with walnuts and blue cheese, what would you serve it with. No spudz allowed.

    Walnuts and blue cheese are two of my most hated foods.

    Salad consisting of rocket, confit pears and balsamic vinegar, however, .|..|s my socks. No potatoes there.

    I recommend the balsamic you can get in M&S, in a tall glass jug thingy. Product of Modena, that's all I remember about it.

    Made a tabouleh and tomato sauce to go with it. It was really nice.

    Try my broccoli, avocado, crushed walnuts and chilli mash! Broccomoli I call it - and frankly, it's disgustingly good.

    Why thanks for your interest!

    I simmered bulgar for a few minutes in turmeric salt and pepper

    Mean time in a salad bowl put oil, lime juice, chilli, crushed garlic salt and pepper in with some chick peas, chopped tomato, pepper and red onion and a handful of raisins.

    When the bulgars all cooked and drained mix em up good. Add more lime juice/oil as required.

    I'm always open to new ideas on tabouleh though...
