Revenge a dish best served breaded

17/09/2009

Popular widsom suggests revenge is a dish best served cold, but English chef Keith Floyd served his breaded.

A Telegraph obituary recounts:

On one occasion he gleefully recalled serving a serially ungrateful diner a carefully cooked beer mat disguised as a breaded escalope of veal. The man ate it without comment but criticised the topping on his crème brûlée.

I’ve had the odd steak which tasted like leather and some takeaways seem to have the consistency and nutritional value of the cardboard they’re served in;  but I haven’t knowingly partaken of a beer mat, breaded or otherwise.

UPDATE: Liberty Scott has more on Floyd.
