Big Bris Cookbook
All cricketers have
big appetites. The combination of hard graft in the field and long journeys whilst going
on tour means the lads like to work hard and play hard. Some of the guys like a beer or
two. Others have a soft spot for the ladies. A few may even pass the time puffing on a
crack pipe. As for me, well, I like the occasional spot of dinner.
After a day of laying willow onto
leather, theres nothing more pleasant than the sight of a pile of carbohydrates on
china. The fellows rib me now and then about my eating, but I still feel as lithe and trim
So heres a few of my
favourite recipes just for you.
Pottage avec le pain blanc
Tear a slice off the end of the loaf. Pull the insides out. Pour in the hot soup. Push of bed back in to soak up the soup. Top off with a knob (1lb) of butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Put on a plastic mac, and then eat with gusto.Chocolate sandwich
Unwrap the choc choc. Smear the smooth sides with butter, then add generous dollops of chocolate spread. Form a sandwich with the two slabs. Eat as if youll never eat another meal again.Crispy Chicken Tikka
Pour the heated Tikkas into a large bucket. Ladle the cream over the meat. Sprinkle liberally with cornflakes and top off with several spoonfuls of mango chutney. Eat with a trowel, reminding your friends to watch their fingers, should they get too neat your mouth.Kebab à la Brian
Kneel on the floor in front of rotating kebab. Using a chainsaw, slice huge chunks of meat off the kebab. As they fall, catch the chunks in your mouth. Squirt in the tomato ketchup to taste. Make huge slurping noises as you eat.
