The Sock is in Plymouth for the weekend again so obviously it is raining.
Last night the Socks dined at a restaurant in the Barbican - a pleasant enough meal with good, fresh, local ingredients slightly unnecessarily fussed over in a way that detracted from the food. Gordon 'boil in the bag' Ramsay might be a hypocrite but that doesn't make him wrong. In the Sock's view only the top chefs can get away with artistic arrangements of the food, everyone else should keep it simple and concentrate on the cooking. The most memorable part of the meal was the view over the road of the fish and shop
where a board outside advertised "As Seen on BBC1..."
On seeing this the Socks both simultaneously chanted "...Rogue Traders!" An amusing five minutes followed where the Socks imagined every likely programme the chip shop might have appeared on "Chip shops from Hell", "How clean is your chippy?", "Coach Trip".
What a shame the Socks didn't have any chalk with them.
