Re: Wouldn't let me post by mobile yesterday

Thank you for you kind words.

Did you meet up in Faversham with Les?

I am his nephew so the brother you know might be my dad

Uncle Lester

Good day all

I am Lesters nephew and behalf of his family we would like to thank you for all your kind words and messages. He clearly was a well respected man known not only for his fierce intelligence but also his biting humour. It is some consolation to know that he had some impact on so many people and we really do appreciate your wishes and support. Although the man is gone he will live on through his writings and achievements. I'll be raising a glass tonight in honour of the legend Les and hope you will do the same. I know he would have appreciated it.

P.s I don't know about you all but i'm gonna miss the post pub nosh neckfillers

Post-pub nosh neckfiller: The Red Dwarf chilli chutney egg sarnie


Re: An explanation

Cheers! It is definitely something i will be having again and will give the bacon a go. What we thinking here? Smoked/unsmoked, crispy/soft and rashers/back/middle? It's all about the details....


An explanation

Sean Haines here; the devilishly fine specimen in the article.

The white bread used was indeed to mirror the fact that Lister would not have chosen a nice granary or wholewheat. I could have gone for the 'value' options available but I couldn't bring myself to do it. In the episode it is clearly white bread so I tried to replicate it as best possible.

The line in the episode is "a triple fried egg butty with chilli sauce and chutney." Not a chilli chutney. As Lister is well known for is love of indian curry I came to the conclusion that the only chutney he would use was a mango chutney.

Now the Encona chilli sauce debate; I agree it is not the best choice. Unfortunately it was the only option available to me at the local supermarket.

I was attempting to recreate the recipe as true to form and believe believe I did quite well except on the severity of the chilli sauce.

wider impact

Whilst you undertake this admirable task has anyone considered the greater impact it may have on the local economy?! If everyone were to spend only the equivalent of £1 a day what would that do to our small businesses that rely on an income? The trickle down effect would only lead them to become impoverished and scraping by. We only have to look at your local public house to see the sort of detrimental effect this kind of thinking can have. 75% drop in profits this week or so I have been told. Lester WE HAVE TO TALK.
